Subscribe To Weekly Recap Sept 29th: NBA Live 13 Canceled, Borderlands 3, Slender: The Arrival Coming Updates
If you thought EA was on the fast-track to recovery, think again. Just like a drunk in a liquor store, EA is like a thief in a bank when it comes to screwing over gamers and their latest antic involves canceling NBA Live 13 while also doing some nefarious things with the FIFA franchise. Gearbox Software is apparently already sinking their hooks into Borderlands 3 as the writer of the series talks about a few ideas he'd love to toss into the game. And if horror games make you piss your pants easy then you'll love the news about a sequel to Slender: The Eight Pages called Slender: The Arrival. These stories and more in this September 29th, 2012 edition of the Gaming Blend Weekly Recap.
