Fantastic Neighborhood 31: The The Rock, The Sean Connery, and The Borderlands

Too much to do, too little time. It’s the problem with growing up: when we were young, we had almost unlimited time to have fun, but no money to do the stuff we really want; now, we’re adults (legally) and don’t have enough time to play Borderlands 2 and Torchlight 2. #FirstWorldProblems

This week we’ve got a pair of mobile games, Super Hexagon and 10,000,000, and Fred played the lovely Dust: An Elysian Tale. And of course, Borderlands 2. Jon is hyped for buying new stuff (the WiiU and iPhone 5) and Fred buys another new Magic set. Also Dragon Age III, the doctors leaving BioWare, the utter lack of anything good at TGS, and oh yeah, Judge Dredd comes out tomorrow! Game Club is the 16-bit horor yarn, Home.

Next week’s Game Club is McPixel. Available for free or for money on PC, or for money on mobile.
