Starcraft II:Heart of the Swarm May Not Make 2011

Yes, I’m just as disappointed in reading that title as you are.

Developers say they would be “hard pressed” to complete and release the expansion pack to Starcraft II by 2011, and Battle.net directors alluded to an early 2012 release.  Although 2011 isn’t out of the running, it’s best to not get ones hopes up.  Then again, we waited how long for Starcraft II itself?  [/angrily glances at Blizzard]

Borderlands : GOTY Edition

The Gearbox Software developers just announced that a special “Game of the Year Edition” [GOTY] of Borderlands will be re-released for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on October 12.

The GOTY edition will feature the basic Borderlands game, all four downloadable contents, as well as a foldout map of the game’s over-world territories.  This special edition will run PS3/Xbox360 owners around $60, while PC gamers get a small break for only $50.

It was also hinted than an official GOTY strategy guide for Borderlands will also be marketed, although not confirmed.  It was originally seen via online retailers such as Gamestop last month, but the product was eventually pulled from the online status.
