Goukijones, Batrasterd, and I take on Pete the Invincible using a glitch to our advantage.
On Wednesday, January 16, Goukijones, Batrasterd, and I went and took on the raid boss of Mr. Tourge's Campaign of Carnage, Pete the Invincible. During the course of this particular fight, though, we ended up getting Pete into a spot where he essentially got stuck, allowing us to defeat him without much issue.Read full story...

How to score the "Tribute to a Vault Hunter" achievement and get some cool loot in the process.
Michael Mamaril was a huge Borderlands fan who passed away before BL2 was released. The guys at Gearbox have immortalized him in game, you can get an achievement for finding him, and better yet, he'll give you a free gun of blue (or better) quality every time you see him.
On the consoles, he shows up 100% of the time before the story mission "Rising Action" and only about 10% of the time after that mission starts. On PC it is apparently 10% all the time.
Here's video of us finding him after "Rising Action" at Scooter's (this contains a small story spoiler if you haven't played that mission yet):
And again, this time at Moxxi's:
When he does spawn, he will randomly be in one of a handful of locations, here's where you can find him.
- Near the newsstand in the center of town
- In an alley down the street from the front entrance to Moxxi's
- Inside Moxxi's, near the bar
- Inside Moxxi's, near the piano
- In Marcus' weapons shop
- Near Claptrap's locker up some steps
- Inside Scooter's garage, under the stairs
- Inside Crimson Raider headquarters next to the stairs
- Inside Zed's clinic
- To the left of the door to Crazy Earl's Black Market
He's easily identifiable from both the guns strapped to his back and the fact that his name shows over his head instead of "sanctuary citizen".
Once you've got an item from him, he won't give you another until you either save and reload or leave town and come back. It's a great way to get some mid-level gear before the "Rising Action" mission, where the action really picks up and those guns will come in handy.

Have you ever wondered if the top ranked player on the Xbox Live Leaderboard for Super Street Fighter 4 was legit? Well I've always suspected cheating, and now there is video proof. Check it out!
I'm a huge fan of Super Street Fighter 4. It is one of the most well balanced fighting games to date. No character (maybe Hakan) is worthless in this game. Which is why I play it so much, and never get tired of it. I've checked out the leaderboards before to find replays of some of the best players in the world. Players such as Diago, Gamerbee, Gootecks, Mike Ross, Justin Wong, Sako, Marn, Tokido, and YHC Mochi among others. But I've always noticed a few players with exceptionally high PP, over 7k to be precise. Anyway aMasahitolkeda6 has been exposed for cheating (boosting) PP to become number 1 on the leaderboard.
Now why would you upload your replays to the SSF4 channel if you've been cheating? Sad really. Check it out!
Don't be a Jimmy like aMasahitolkeda6!

Our first look at how to build out the Borderlands 2 classes starts off with Maya, the Siren. Let's see how her 3 skill trees work.
Let's start off with my least favorite tree, Harmony (the center tree). Here's a link to the build if you want to follow along.
I really don't like the "Scorn" cap on this tree, as you can see at the end of the video, it's very easy to hit yourself with it. Some of the other skills like the "Res" game changer in the middle of the tree, are only useful in co-op, so you'd likely want to re-spec if you ever played solo and put that point to better use somewhere else in the tree. In a full team of 4, and with a good Heavenly Nurse class mod, this build can greatly improve the survivability of everyone in the group. In fact, you should probably move the 5 points in recompense into Elated if you have 3 or more players as it will be less about your survival and more about the health of the group as a whole.
Now lets take a look at the Motion Tree build.
I like this build more and more the longer I use it... It works very well in co-op due to the Res skill (which you can spend elsewhere if you know you are going solo) but it also works well solo as the Thoughlock cap on the motion tree turns one of the enemy mob into an ally (and more importantly, a distraction allowing your shields to keep up). Once your ally is downed, if you still have time left on the skill, it will jump to a new member of the mob and lock them, while also releasing some healing orbs. Double win. Since the making of this video, I've since moved 3 skill points from Recompense to Sustenance and placed 1 point each in Flicker and Foresight as my new class mod buffs those two skills +5. (I used the Heavenly Nurse mod in this video, I now use the Legendary Siren mod).
Finally we have the highly offensive Cataclysm Tree Build.
As you can see, this tree is all about dealing damage, elemental damage that is. Without Res, you're not much of a team player, and you don't do much healing (only a minimal amount when a phaselocked enemy is killed). What you lack in that area, you more than make up for in bringing most of the mob you're facing into a small area, locking one up for a short time, and dealing fire, electric, corrosive, and slag effects to all of them. In a team, this is the moment when one of your buddies throws a grenade into the circle, or better yet a nuke turret from Axton. GoukiJones and I LOL-ed on that action more than a few times.
Here's a bonus vid of the Cataclysm tree in action, solo in the Torgue circle of death.
When a badass with shields is in range, you grab them with phaselock and wait for the electrical portion of the damage to kick in and strip their shields, by then they are slagged too, so open fire with a fire weapon and watch them drop!
You'll notice I use all Maliwan weapons. Two reasons, first I love Maliwan for their elemental damage, second I have a Maliwan allegience relic that gives me +30% damage to all Maliwan weapons. If you don't have that, I recommend a proficiency relic (action skill cooldown rate increase) which works well for all builds on all classes.
That's about it for Maya, I'll be working on the other classes soon.

This is a series of development videos for an upcoming game starting at the earliest stages of development. Many aspects of the game may and will change as the code is written but so far it looks pretty cool for another pony fan game.
I just wonder how many of these will be made before Hasbro starts buying up these developers and actually puts them on real big buget projects. Most of the games being made based on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic are turning out to be way better than most indie games based on souly original ideas.
While I like many of these games It would be nice to see a completely new type of game utalizing the characters from the show in a way that fits the source material.
