Goosebumps 2 is officially happening. The Borderlands movie gets a writer. Carice van Houten talks about that big Game of Thrones reveal. Elizabeth Banks gets her villain on in new Power Rangers set footage. Plus, new clips from Civil War and Agents of SHIELD, and new Ghostbusters promo pictures. To me, my Spoilers!
Lionsgate Films announced that they’re teaming up with Gearbox Software to bring their game Borderlands to a theater near you. The company is aiming to position the film as a major tentpole event, although they didn’t indicate when the film would come out.
Before I joined Gearbox Software, I worked at Destructoid as a features editor. I worked there from 2006 to 2010 and specialized in highlighting indie games and spewing vitriol at big-budget games I didn't like. It turns out there were a shitload of things I didn't know about games development.

Everyone is sweaty and drunk, but most of all they're happy. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you GaymerX, my favorite game convention—and also maybe the last…
The next big game from Gearbox is Battleborn, a first-person multiplayer game that appears to be their take on the MOBA genre. It'll be out for PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
If you've ever just looked up at the sky while playing a Borderlands game you might've noticed the big H-shaped, Hyperion-owned moonbase suspended ominously in space above the planet Pandora. Well, in the next big Borderlands game, coming out this fall, you'll be going to that moon.
No game is perfect. But what if one could be? Just for me? Just for you?
The proposal, delivered by Borderlands' comedy-reliefbot Claptrap in a video developed over a week by Gearbox Software, did not conjure images of bended knees, rose petals and those silhouetted DeBeers ads. It was a little inappropriate. That's OK. "We're a… [Kotaku]
If only the real Connecticut had looked like this, I would have liked it more. Evil survivalists and mutant wolves tear up a post-apocalyptic landscape in the video game Borderlands. More new screenshots below.

It's a meeting spot, a salon, and a cruising joint for people who want to hang out and talk scifi with other bookish types.
