What we want from Borderlands 3

Okay, this is a big ask, cause just about nobody does guns like Bungie does guns. But Borderlands has always been a shooter where the feeling of pulling the trigger and killing an enemy was fine, but not amazing. But how much better would Borderlands' procedurally generated arsenal of wacky guns be if the feedback and punch of each gun was as satisfying as it is in Bungie's Destiny 2? Those are lofty goals to aspire to, especially with procedurally generated weapons, but Gearbox has a big opport

Google Maps has gingerly returned to China after an eight year absence

When asked to bow down to China’s strict censorship laws in 2010, tech giant Google made the decision to pull its most popular services entirely from the country rather than comply. The company has now returned to the Chinese market – albeit in a tentative way – by reintroducing a localized version of Google Maps.

The statement is something of a rebuttal of a tweet posted on January 14 by Netflix, where the company said there were “currently no plans for Netflix on Nintendo Switch” in respon

Fortnite breaks two million peak concurrent players

Playerunknown's Battlegrounds is the big dog in the battle royale fight, but Fortnite is quickly making up ground. Epic Games reported today that the game now has 40 million players, and that its peak concurrent user count recently broke the two million mark. It's not as easy keeping up with Fortnite's numbers as it is with most other games, because it's not on Steam and so we can't just hit the numbers whenever we feel like it to see how things are going. But even though it's not an apples-to-a
