http://www.destructoid.com/this-borderlands-2-teaser-is-all-in-game-208306.phtml Borderlands 2? Yeah, kind of a big deal. Gearbox Software finally announced the game earlier this month and now they've released the first teaser. Unlike normal teasers, this one is all "in engine," according to Gearbox's Steve Gibson.(Hamza Aziz)
http://www.destructoid.com/lollipop-chainsaw-looks-how-its-name-sounds-208972.phtml I didn't need all that much to convince me that Lollipop Chainsaw was a game after my own heart. But after seeing this trailer, I'm completely sold. Lollipop Chainsaw tells the tale of Juliet Starling, a zombie hunting cheerleader who has to fend off an undead outbreak that's overrun her school. Stupid? Certainly. But as far as I'm concerned, it's a stupid concept in all of the right ways. (Nick Chester)

http://www.destructoid.com/worldwide-price-drop-for-ps3-to-249-euro-dollar-and-yen-209006.phtml Sony just announced a price drop for the PS3 across the board, in all territories worldwide, at the very end of their gamescom press conference today. The magic number is 249, which means it's $249 in Dollars, €249 in Euros and 24,900 Yen in the Land of the Rising sun. Now. That means that the PS Vita will launch at the same price as the PS3.

http://www.destructoid.com/saints-row-the-third-is-the-definition-of-a-fun-game-209076.phtml%20 I've said it before and I'll say it again: Videogames are way too serious. Don't get me wrong. Serious games can be fun. What I'm mostly agitated by is the state of gaming where not a lot of crazy outrageous games are being produced. Remember Conker's Bad Fur Day? Armed and Dangerous? They were stupid, but in the "this is so stupid that it's fun" kind of way. (Hamza Aziz)
