There’s nothing quite like playing a game with high production value to it. That isn’t referring to the price tag it took to get the game here, but rather the elements that make up the game. Great visuals, fun environment, weapons, and writing make for a good time.

For all of its gifts to gaming, it's a shame James Cameron's Aliens has never birthed a great videogame. There have been a few earnest attempts, most involving Predator(s), but Aliens aches for a defining moment - something akin GoldenEye 007 or Escape from Butcher Bay - to understand its influence and realize its potential. Aliens: Colonial Marines, in some phase of development for over five years at Gearbox Software and a handful of other studios, desperately wants to be that game. Billed as a canonical follow-up to Aliens, it seeks to engulf the player in sights and sounds from the 1986 classic. Colonial Marines sure looks and sounds the part, but only by playing its part could it break the cycle of pedestrian Aliens games.

Come Get Some... of this review! From publisher 2K Games comes the "vaporware" title that is 15 years in the making from a handful of developers including: 3D Realms, Triptych Games, Gearbox Software, and Piranha Games. And while this is not the most deep, rich, or technically sound FPS available today, the varied elements, over-the-top presentation, and fun gameplay make this a worthy entry into the franchise known for babes, beer, and gun blasting.

The final DLC pack for Borderlands was recently released, just a few weeks before the imminent Game of the Year Edition. This fourth DLC pack once again brings players back to Pandora, this time to face the uprising revolution of those little funny (and dangerous) robots known as Claptraps. In Claptrap's New Robot Revolution, players will once again be out to hunt, loot, and conquer.

Gearbox and 2K released the third DLC pack for Borderlands recently, and it's considered by many to be the best. The first DLC, Zombie Island of Dr. Ned, had gamers fighting off zombies while DLC #2 was arena based and featured Mad Moxxi. This third DLC, The Secret Armory of General Knoxx, picks up from the end of the original game and is packed with some great new features.

Borderlands expands again with its second major DLC release, Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot. Unlike the original game and the first DLC, The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned, Underdome Riot is focused solely on surviving wave after wave of CPU enemies. What you'll face in this DLC is not unlike the Horde mode from Gears of War 2 or Firefight from Halo. Underdome Riot also includes a new weapons storage bank that can be upgraded, but seasoned players looking for a new level cap or new quests won't find that here.

Many fans of 2K and Gearbox's Borderlands spent at least part of their Thanksgiving weekend playing the new DLC, The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned. This first of several upcoming DLC offerings puts players in Jakobs Cove, an area swarming with zombified creatures ready to gnaw at your bones.

As you probably know by now, Borderlands is a billed as a FPS and RPG hybrid that's been developed by Gearbox Software and published by 2k games. There have been FPS/RPG hybrids before on the PC, so how does Borderlands stack up?

Gearbox Software, developers of the acclaimed Half-Life and Brothers In Arms series, teamed up with renowned publisher 2K Games to release Borderlands earlier this month. Borderlands is what Gearbox calls an RPS, a style of gameplay that is best described as an RPG crossed with a FPS. There have been first person RPGs before, but nothing quite like what has been done here with Borderlands. Let's take a closer look.
