Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel: Thumbstick Athletes Podcast Episode 170

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is just that, the game that takes place before the sequel of Borderlands.  Exploring the back story of BL2's infamous villain Handsome Jack, The Pre-Sequel takes you off of Pandora for the first time and onto it's moon, Elpis.  Like the Earth's moon, Elpis has no oxygen and is light on gravity, making for some fun times.  But is it different enough from the previous Borderlands games to feel fresh?  Dan and Corey spent a decent amount of time with it, even doing something the Athletes always say they will do and never quite get around to doing......co-op.  (gasp)  And a fair amount of it too!

Episode 82: Top 5 Shooters

With the lack of Corey this week and Four in February still going strong, we decide to tackle an easy top 5 this week and pick our 5 favorite shooters. To clarify, this doesn't necessarily just mean FPS games but also third person and various hybrids will also work, as long as the primary game mechanic is......shooting. We're also trying to avoid talking about the same games over and over again so we try not to bring up our top 5 or 10 games of all time in these lists. I'll have to get a list going someplace on the website so we can keep track and make sure not to keep revisiting the same games over and over. We also plan on revisiting our favorite games lists at some point, as they've no doubt changed somewhat over the course of the last year and a half.
