Borderlands 2’s Handsome Jack is just asking for it

Quite literally, as you’ll see in the above trailer. Handsome Jack isn’t too worried about the motley quartet coming his way. Feel free to change his mind this September. With extreme prejudice.

(Seriously, dude calls himself Handsome Jack? If you didn’t have a reason before, you do now.)

Lights, camera, boom, headshot – Valve releases the Source Filmmaker

If you met the Pyro yesterday and lived to tell the tale (and if you’ve got a head full of eyeballs) you might have spotted a Source Filmmaker logo at the end of the video. So yeah, that’s a thing now. You can sign up for a beta key at that link; and, if you’re lucky enough to get one, you’ll be given access to the very same software that Valve used to make ‘Meet the Pyro’ – and indeed, all their other Source-based videos. Given the particular nature of the people who get through, we could either get wondrous feats of creativity, or penis levels for everyone.

Before I get all teary-eyed here, let me just say that Wolfenstein 3D turns 20 today; and how better to celebrate than by making it available for everybody to play through their browser? That’s right, the shooter that started it all for so many of us is now just a couple of clicks away; the first of which can be found right here. Now, I’m just going to huddle in a corner and contemplate my incipient mortality, but you should click on past the break to see a developer’s commentary video of Wolf 3D narrated by John Carmack himself; as well as Wolfenstein’s original DOS box art in all its glory.
