Borderlands 2 Detailed -- All New Characters, Guns, and Vehicles

Unsurprisingly, Madden NFL 13 was able to take the top spot as the top selling game of the month, but it was Borderlands 2 number two spot on the list that really caught our eye. 

“Borderlands 2, with its bazillion guns-a-blazing, exceeded the first month’s unit sales of the first game which launched in October 2009 by 234%," said NPD analyst Anita Frazier. Fifa Soccer 13, New Super Marios Bros. 2, and Guild Wars 2 rounded out the top five.

The bad news is that video game sales continued to slide in September, declining 24 percent year-over-year in September 2012 from $1.11 billion to $848.3 million according to the NPD Group. The number is a bit misleading though, as they only represent new physical retail sales of hardware, software and accessories which only account for about 50 percent of the total amount consumers spend on games.

Had NPD included digital format sales, as well as add-on content downloads including microtransactions, subscriptions, and mobile apps the number would be at about $1.6B, meaning people are still spending just as much money (if not more) on games this year as they were last year, just in different ways.

As for consoles, the Xbox 360 was the highest-selling home console for the month with 270,000 units sold. Nintendo also had a bright month, as the overall sales of the Nintendo 3DS increased 89 percent year-over-year. “Nintendo 3DS XL continues to galvanize our Nintendo 3DS business,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Hardware sales are up, software sales are increasing exponentially and the attach rate is growing stronger every month."

To see the full Top 10 check after the break.

Winner Of Red Dead Redemption Movember Contest Announced

Rockstar Games has announced the winner of its Red Dead Redemption Movember charity contest. The winner is a Candian outlaw named Charles Leece, and for his stellar stache-growing skills, Leece’s likeness will appear in Rockstar’s upcoming open-world western title as a hunt down-able marauder.

The contest was held this past November in honor of Movember, "an annual, month-long celebration of the moustache, highlighting men’s health issues - specifically prostate and testicular cancer.”

You’ll be able to track the dashing bandit named Leece across the dusty plains of Red Dead Redemption when the game rolls into town in April.

DJ Hero

Friday is upon us. That's a very good thing, as it means we're all just hours away from being able to leave the office (or the mall or the classroom or wherever) and drown ourselves in what's really important: video games. We're at that critical juncture in the fall where it's pretty common to start falling behind and developing a backlog and I'm no different. Brutal Legend sits unfinished, my Borderlands character is only at level 8 and the last few tiers of DJ Hero mock me.

But, that's just me. What are you playing this weekend?



Tokyo Game Show is nearly here, which leaves the G4tv.com split on opposite sides of the Earth. Some of the boys are getting their portable-gaming groove on as they make the 10-hour flight to Japan, while the home team will be chilling out in sunny Los Angeles. What games will the G4tv.com be playing as they're divided? Read on to find out! When you're done, let everyone know what you're playing over the weekend.

Scribblenauts

Brian Leahy: As I’ll be spending quite a bit of time on a plane to Japan, I’ll be playing Scribblenauts and assorted iPhone games: Peggle, Doom Resurrection, Civilization Revolution, and Madden NFL 10. Sadly, I’ll have to wait until I return to play Halo 3: ODST. I could bring my copy to Japan, but I’ve heard there aren’t actually any Xbox 360s in Japan.

This has been a strange week at G4: A lot of TheFeed's crew have been laid out by various nerd-related diseases, and everyone else is traveling, or just listless with post-PAX letdown disorder. We're all using the weekend to recharge our mental and physical batteries, mostly with the help of the Fab Four! Read on to see what your favorite G4 editors are playing. When you're done, leave a comment and let the G4 community know what you're playing this weekend.

Sergeant Pepper and Rubber Soul To Be Beatles: Rock Band DLC

Sterling McGarvey: I will spend this weekend the way I’ve spent the last few sleep-deprived evenings: Beatle-ing. Yeah, Guitar Hero 5 is probably the best in the series since Harmonix was working on the games, but GH5 also doesn’t have “I Am the Walrus,” which is both the trippiest background video and the most fun track to play on guitar so far. It doesn’t hurt that the PS3 version of The Beatles: Rock Band supports SingStar mics, so now I can host six people, and everyone can participate in the game. That’s a lot of players. That said, I’m really happy with what I’ve been playing, and as someone who grew up listening to other bands and artists, it’s a great introduction to Beatles songs that I might’ve missed over the years. And if that’s me, a guy in my early thirties, saying that, then I know there’s a lot of younger Rock Band players who are going to be exposed to some great songs. It’s a win-win situation.

Labor Day weekend is pretty nuts for the G4tv.com crew. Some of peeps are PAX, others are flying off to Japan, and a few of the crew are lucky enough to enjoy the holiday weekend. With everyone off enjoying tradeshows, airplanes, sun, and BBQ action, there are a variety of games in this week's picks. Check 'em out! When you're done, let everyone know what you're playing over the long weekend.

Guitar Hero 5

Brian Leahy: This weekend I'll be playing Rock Band 2 and Guitar Hero 5 to get ready for The Beatles: Rock Band. As always, I'll find time for Halo 3 and Peggle. I'm mostly in a holding pattern until Halo 3: ODST, Dragon Age: Origins, DJ Hero, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

It's supposed to be the end of summer, yet it was over 100 degrees in Los Angeles today! This has prompted the G4tv.com crew to cool off with some excellent games. A bunch of the gang is going ga-ga over Batman: Arkham Asylum, while others are getting their Buster Sword groove on in Dissidia: Final Fantasy. What games are your favorite G4tv.com writers playing? Check TheFeed's Weekend Playlist and find out! When you're done, let everyone know what you're playing this weekend.

New Dissidia Final Fantasy Screens Shine

Raymond Padilla: Even though I've already reviewed Dissidia: Final Fantasy, I'm still playing the hell out of it. It's fun as a basic fighter and awesome for gamers that love RPG-style customization. I'm totally into leveling up my favorite characters, getting them new weapons, and discovering new accessories. It just completely works for me. This might come as a surprise to you, but I'm going to play some Madden NFL 10. The biggest reason I'm playing the game is so I can control the Minnesota Vikings and their awesome quarterback. The fact that Andrew and Billy are from Wisconsin and love the Green Bay Packers might have something (okay, practically everything) to do with it to. Favre 4 life!!!

It's frickin' hot in Los Angeles and the temperature has the G4tv.com crew's blood boiling (not really...the air conditioning here is rather effective)! To keep everyone's internal temperature at 98.6 degrees, the gang loads of great games to cool down with. From classic hits on Steam to Saw to Wii Sports Resort, the boys are playing games that will keep them cool as the other side of the pillow. Find out what your favorite writers are playing and let everyone know what's on your playlist this weekend.

Valve's Steam Logo

Patrick Klepek: The decision to finally convert my MacBook Pro into a mildly capable gaming rig continues to be a phenomenal decision. The addition of Steam to my potential gaming catalog has been invaluable. I'll be taking advantage of my newfound PC-ness by purchasing the phenomenal indie value pack over at Direct2Drive, which bundles games like Zero Clash, Democracy 2, Defense Grid: The Awakening, Cogs and The Path for less than $20. You can't beat that, which is why I'm buying it right now. You should, too!

Now that the G4tv.com crew has decompressed from the Comic-Con 09 madness, the gang can get back to "normal" video-game schedules. On tap for this weekend is a wide variety of excellent titles, including Fat Princess, Final Fantasy Dissidia, Battlefield 1943, and more. Read on to see what your favorite G4 editors are playing. When you're done, leave a comment and let the G4 community know what you're playing this weekend.

Are You Experiencing Massive Lag In Fat Princess?

Sterling McGarvey: Yeah, I downloaded Fat Princess, and I want to play it, but it sounds like there’s a lot of performance issues. I’ll probably stick to my weird experiments with my PSP. I have no idea why, but I got a sudden craving for some Street Fighter Alpha the other night, so I decided to buy Alpha 2 from the PlayStation Store. In between that and fate/unlimited codes, I’ve been trying to tax my PSP D-pad. The results? Still can’t hit a Dragon Punch, but so far, not too bad for fate, Capcom’s upcoming download-only fighter. Expect a preview next week for that one. On this week’s The Feed Nightcap, I said that the future of handheld gaming isn’t going to come down to iPhone vs. PSP vs. DSi. It’s going to come down to how you buy your games.

A wise man once said, "But there ain't no cure for the summertime blues." Fortunately, that doesn't apply to the peeps at TheFeed -- how can anyone here be blue when there are so many great games to play?!? From Wii MotionPlus action to indie darlings to upcoming fighters, the troops have all sorts of great games on tap for the weekend. Find out what your favorite writers are playing and let everyone know what's on your playlist this weekend.

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 First To Incorporate Facebook Connect For Xbox

Jake Gaskill: I finally picked up Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 for the Wii, and I’m thoroughly satisfied. I’m looking forward to trying out the Play the Pros feature during this weekend’s British Open (I’ve already torn apart Turnberry, so it should be a pretty easy tournament.) I’ll also be working on the XBLA title ‘Splosion Man, which I’m really excited about (be sure to check back next week for my review). Unfortunately, I don’t think I’ll be able to get in any more Shadow Complex (BOO!), and when I say that that saddens me, you have no idea how much I mean that.

Summer premieres are awesome. Whether you're looking forward to seeing Bruno, Entourage, or Harry Potter, there's just something special about summertime movies and television shows. Even though lots of young people are home for school and have a lot of time on their hands, it's a slow period for gaming. Of course that doesn't stop the gang at G4tv.com! From fighters to action games to RPGs to casual titles, the editors are playing a wide variety of games. Find out what your favorite writers are playing and let everyone know what's on your playlist this weekend.
 
BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger Review
 
Brian Leahy: This weekend will continue with fighting game madness as I put more time into BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger and Street Fighter IV, especially since I’ll be going to EVO next weekend to cover the event and get slaughtered in the SFIV tourney. I’ll probably make time for some Halo 3 and I’ve been meaning to start another playthrough of Metal Gear Solid 4 so it might be time for that. I haven’t quite decided if I’m going to get Battlefield 1943 yet, but if enough of my friends pick it up I’ll probably have to make the purchase. As always, there will be Peggle.

It's an excellent week for summer celebration. Whether you're celebrating Canada Day, the formation of the "We Hate Blair Herter" Facebook club, or America's birthday, there are tons of reasons to party this week. The G4tv.com gang is all set for a weekend of beaches, barbecues, karaoke, and more...but it wouldn't be complete without a healthy dose of gaming. Here's what your favorite writers and editors are playing this weekend. As always, leave a comment and let everyone know what you're playing.

Duke Nukem

Stephen Johnson: Because I am well known as an American patriot, and because the 4th of July is the most patriotic of all holidays (except Arbor Day) I will be spending my weekend revisiting one of the most blatantly American video games ever made. I’ll be playing Duke Nukem on the Xbox. In keeping with the 4th of July theme, I’m going to follow Duke up with some Oregon Trail on my iPhone and wash it all down with a PC MAME version of Burgertime.

Everyone at TheFeed is saddened by the passing of Michael Jackson, while the older staffers are also mourning the loss of Farrah Fawcett. How does the gang deal with grief? By gaming of course! While listening to timeless songs like "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough", "Human Nature", and "Beat It", as well as reminiscing of the iconic image of Fawcett in a red swimsuit, the boys and girls at G4tv.com have all sorts of games on tap for this weekend. Check 'em out and let everyone know what you're playing this weekend!

Ghostbusters

Andrew Pfister: I just returned from a quick vacation to my home state of Wisconsin, where I spent time visiting friends, family, and the special places where I grew up. It was a definite 1980s flashback, and after the events of this week, I’m a little worried that my '80s memories are starting to slowly fade.

I guess this is a long, sappy way of saying that I’m going to steal a copy of Ghostbusters from Billy’s office. And maybe dust off the ol’ Virtual Console for some Metroid, Super Mario Bros. and Punch-Out!! action.

And buy a box of Lucky Charms and/or Trix for Saturday morning.

The G4tv.com crew is getting ready to celebrate the summer solstice (there are a lot of Wiccans here), but that won't stop the crew from getting their game on. This weekend, the gang has all sorts of games in mix -- real-time strategy, iPhone games, sports, role playing, and more. Find out what your favorite G4tv.com staffers are playing in a sun-soaked edition of TheFeed's Weekend Playlist. As always, let the boys know what you're playing this weekend and what you think of their picks.

Brian Leahy loves Starcraft II (2)

Brian Leahy: I’m in a bit of an RTS mood (especially with chatter that the StarCraft 2 beta will be kicking off soon) so I’ll probably load up the ‘ol Brood War and get my ass kicked on iCCup a bit. Then, I’ll switch over to Dawn of War II and knock out some team games. As always, Street Fighter IV will make an appearance (it’s basically my Fallout 3: over 110 hours logged to date) and I’ll put more time into Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 on the Wii.

Now that the G4tv.com crew has had time to decompress from E3 2009, the gang can get back to "normal" video-game schedules. On tap for this weekend is a wide variety of excellent titles, including inFamous, Peggle, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10, a couple of Final Fantasy games, and more. Read on to see what your favorite G4 editors are playing. When you're done, leave a comment and let the G4 community know what you're playing this weekend.

inFamous

Sterling McGarvey: I’m being a good friend and helping a buddy move across town on Saturday, but in between doses of Icy Hot on Saturday night, I’ll be zapping around Empire City with inFamous. I’m a few weeks later to the party than my peers, but E3 wouldn’t schedule itself. I started it Sunday, but after two bleary eyed mornings in the office, I decided to wait until this weekend when my eyes can bleed freely.

When I’m not zapping gangs of mutated criminals, I’ll be driving myself bald playing Trash Panic, the weirdest downloadable game you can buy for five bucks since Noby Noby Boy. It’s a PSN Japanese puzzle game that’s as difficult as it is intriguing, yet I can’t stop playing it. Imagine a physics-driven Tetris, but you have to destroy the puzzle pieces. You can shatter light bulbs by dropping them as fast as possible, but how will you trash a damaged LCD TV? Can you burn the garbage without the carbon footprint dropping your score? To make matters worse, if three undamaged pieces of debris fall out of your trash can, it’s Game Over. It’s a game that seems to enjoy punishing the player, but I can’t stay away.
