Have you been looking for a new controller? It would seem you are in luck! Yesterday at the Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas; Microsoft, Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix unveiled the limited edition Tomb Raider Xbox 360 controller that will release the same day as the game.
Developed in collaboration with artists at Crystal Dynamics, the design of the controller features a two-layer colour finish with laser etching to create a realistic and tactile worn appearance. It’s inspired by Lara’s iconic climbing axe and the tourniquets that result from the adventure in her intense origin story, as told in this latest title. The controller also features a customisable D-pad that switches from a “plus” design to a “disc” pattern for better control, and a wireless range of up to 30-feet that allows for more freedom in your home environment as you explore and play the game.

I feel like we haven’t talked since last year
Greetings and salutations, dear reader, and welcome to the first Bulletin of 2013. I wanted to write you an eloquently penned introduction, full of cleverly-crafted phrases intended to evoke emotional responses relevant to the recent warm and festive holiday season, except I couldn’t remember the name of the traditional party favor typically used during celebratory occasions. So I opened up my favorite search engine, typed in “things you blow at parties”, and proceeded to get lost in the deepest, darkest depths of the intertubes. Suffice it to say that it wasn’t safe to go alone. Thankfully I wasn’t truly alone, because after a few weeks of operating at partial capacity, 343 as a collective entity is officially back and running full steam ahead into the anxiously awaiting arms of the New Year.

Limited Edition Borderlands 2 Ultimate Loot Chests and other goodies to be won via new online shoot and loot game
First they had gamers hooked for hours with 80’s style de-make, ‘The Border Lands’. Now, 2K Games and Gearbox Software have launched ‘Mount Jackmore’, a new online game with prizes to give away including the much sought-after Limited Edition Loot Lockers.
Handsome Jack, the ultimate villain of Gearbox Software’s upcoming release, Borderlands 2, has kicked his arrogance and douchebaggery up a notch by carving his face into Pandora’s rocky landscape. ‘Mount Jackmore’ gives players the task/mission to shoot away at his chiseled features in the hope of taking away a prize.
Registered players start by selecting their weapon of choice and use their initial supply of 100 bullets to chip away at Jack’s stony face. Players can earn additional ammo once a day by inviting friends to play. As the rock disintegrates, prizes will be given away at designated points in the game.
For those of you that enjoy not just games but all sorts of merchandise surrounding great games, we have something very special for you as always.
