REVIEWS Titan Souls Review
Titan Souls isn't much like Dark Souls, but the Prepare to Die tagline still works.

StarDrive 2 Review
A 4X strategy game in space. Sounds like a perfect match, right?

Oh boy, a new Tales Of game? Gosh, I hope it will be a high-fantasy anime-styled JRPG... that would be so unique.

Bloodborne's apparently successful launch (see note below) has yielded two interesting points, for me.  One is that it's being hailed as the PS4's savior (see note below) and the other is that it seems to have serious technical problems.  Conversations erupting around...

Gearbox's Tribute To Michael Mamaril (R.I.P.) In Borderlands 2

Posted on Thursday, September 20 @ 15:40:20 Eastern by

This story is old, but it's new to me. And it's incredibly important.

For those of you playing Borderlands 2, you may have noticed an NPC standing around Sanctuary named Michael Mamaril. It's already rare to have an NPC be have a name (and a last name at that), and if you take a few seconds to talk to him, he's a fellow Vault Hunter who is more than happy to share his rare loot, many times blue- or purple-level rarity. He's so charitable that he's in my tips guide and that I spend a minute looking for him every time I return to Sanctuary.

Apparently, that was the point.

Michael Mamaril is based off a real person, whom Gearbox Software decided to pay tribute to (hence, the "Tribute to a Vault Hunter" Achievement/Trophy). A Destructoid fan named Carlo wrote an email into Gearbox Software about his friend, Michael John Mamaril, who passed away from cancer at 22. Michael was a huge fan of Borderlands 2 and Carlo thought that he would be cool for Claptrap to read a eulogy (available below).



Gearbox obviously went one step further, going well beyond the call of duty. Michael Mamaril will now be immortalized in the Borderlands universe.

Awesome job, Gearbox! My hat is off to you.
