Several new games have been announced this week as well as a few revelations about games that will be announced soon. Gearbox has trademarked Borderworlds, which means that itís either a sequel or an MMOFPS. The upcoming Scourge Project is nearing release for the Xbox 360 and PS3 and the company wanted to make sure everyone knows itís a third-person shooter with a story and four-player co-op modes. Medal of Honor is getting a reboot in the same vein as Modern Warfare. And Thief 4 is still in pre-production, just in case you were wondering. Oh, new videos for Red Dead Redemption and the PS3 and Xbox 360 version of No More Heroes also surfaced this week, so you might want to check those out, too. These stories and more in this December 5th edition of the Blend Games Weekly Recap.
