Borderlands 2: TK Baha's Bloody Harvest Begins Reaping
6:00 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Gearbox Software and Aspyr Media have released TK Baha’s Bloody Harvest, the first of the downloadable Headhunter add-ons for Borderlands 2. The Headhunter DLC series will give players adventures revolving around various new bosses and the players' struggles to defeat them and steal their heads to wear as prizes.

TK Baha’s Bloody Harvest gives gamers the task of gathering pieces of a key capable of granting them access to the Pumpkin Kingpin's pumpkin patch. Once there they can confront the villain in an epic battle to claim his giant pumpkin head. It also features a range of augmented candies which will offer various temporary buffs.

In TK Baha’s Bloody Harvest, you’ll be tasked by the eponymous zombified corpse to discover the pieces of a key that will lead you into the heart of the Pumpkin Kingpin’s pumpkin patch (try saying that 3 times), where you will confront the Kingpin himself in an epic battle to claim his giant pumpkin head as your own.

Oh yeah, and there’s augmented candy all over the place. As you make your way through TK Baha’s Bloody Harvest, candies will drop from enemies and provide all sorts of temporary buffs, ranging from faster movement speed to increased damage and more, so be sure to pay attention to them!

We’re excited about this release, and can’t wait to hear about your adventures with both this and the other Headhunter add-ons in the works. As Krieg would say: “NEVER STOP THE KILLING!! NEVER!!”

These Headhunter add-ons offer additional adventures that set you off on a series of missions in new areas that culminate with you taking down some rather unique bosses and claiming their heads to wear as your prize. They can be played in a single sitting either by yourself, or with friends (though we recommend bringing friends), and are appropriately priced at just USD $2.99 / GBP Ł2.39 / EUR 2,99 € each.

Goodbye Deponia Now At MGS
6:00 AM | IMG News | 1 comment

Daedalic Entertainment's Goodbye Deponia is now available for download and purchase at Mac Game Store. The third and final installment in the award winning Deponia adventure series focuses on hapless anti-hero Rufus and his unwavering quest to leave the junk planet of Deponia behind for the lofty heights of Elysium city.

More chaos, more destruction, more Rufus. Not one, not two, but three Rufuses cause all kinds of crazy mayhem in the long-awaited point & click adventure comedy Goodbye Deponia: The Organon plans the destruction of Deponia, the lovely Goal has (once again) disappeared and anti-hero Rufus just can't seem to stop getting in his own way.

All inventor and free spirit Rufus wanted to do was to get off the junkyard planet of Deponia and move to Elysium, the paradise orbiting Deponia as a spaceship reserved only for the highest echelons of society. Goal, the ex-Elysian girl that Rufus has fallen head over heels for, still seems to be the key to his endeavor ... and to the elevator that will get him to space. Finally, Rufus has come up with a seemingly perfect plan.

And yet, everything that could possibly go wrong suddenly does go wrong. Rufus finds himself (initially in disguise) on a highway cruiser amongst stern-faced officials of the Organon, while Goal goes missing. When Rufus stumbles upon a cloning machine, he believes to have found his way out. A clone copy is supposed to help him out of his predicament. But an "inexplicable" error causes complications and Goal slips from our hero's reach once again. Now, he has to solve three major problems: He needs to find Goal again, reach Elysium and prevent the destruction of the entire planet of Deponia by the hand of the Organon.

Three problems that only three Rufuses could solve – and thus, the luckless inventor decides to clone himself! This leads to crazy ramifications for the player: In Goodbye Deponia, the player occasionally needs to control all three Rufuses, using them to complete tasks together – despite Rufus stumbling over himself so often.

Goodbye Deponia is the epic conclusion to the Deponia trilogy and sequel to the best German game of 2013 (German Computer Game Awards).
The award-winning Deponia series comprises of three wacky tales of adventure from the junkyard planet Deponia. These classic point & click romps not only delight comedy fans and adventure veterans, but also newcomers to the genre.
