New Borderlands DLC Announced: The Secret Armory of General Knoxx

Some people read the morning paper. I crack open my Google Reader with its tech-filled goodness of things like Gizmodo and Kotaku. Well, this morning Kotaku offered up something very nice in the morning news. Apparently Gearbox Software, the makers of Borderlands, have officially announced the awaited-with-baited-breath third DLC: The Secret Armory of General Knoxx.

Above is one of the released screen shots from the DLC courtesy of Kotaku’s coverage of the announcement. Check out the other screen shot that they have there. So, the rumors appear to be true: the level cap will be raised with this expansion to…well I guess that never got mentioned, but just like WoW addicts, and increase will most likely be heralded as the second coming of the messiah or something like that.

To me what’s more important is the promise of LOADS of new content with the supposed largest DLC yet. I really enjoyed the Zombie Island of Dd. Ned. It added missions, room to level, not to mention hilarious and corny horror/thriller killing action. Just remember Ned is completely different from our kind friend Dr. Zed (just look at the mustache!).

I have yet to download and play Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot. I like a little story, and not to mention experience, for my game play.  While there is no official release date for this promising-to-be-epic DLC of General Knoxx, we can apparently look forward to some good times for characters between levels 34 and 50. Can’t wait! Keep an eye on Kotaku for the latest news.

Fable 2: Knothole Island

I haven’t had a lot of time lately for gaming, but last night my roommate told me that new content had been released for Fable 2. For those of you who don’t have an XBox 360, or are simply not fans of the Fable series, you are missing out. Fable 2 is a great game full of adventure, exploring, and comedy. Sadly, Fable 2 was simply not long enough for me. I finished the game, and without a strong desire to play it again with a new character, it got resigned to collecting dust. Last night, I found about the new content that has recently been released for this game: Knothole Island. This is a whole new area added to the game that comes with new places to explore, new quests, and most of all, new loot. I have yet to play through the entire region, but have already been enjoying some of the items that come from the island. The new potions to control height and weight are much better than tediously munching celery all the time. For now, I’m excited about the prospect of new adventures in a great game, and will post more about the island when I have beaten the area.
