Scribblenauts Unlimited Coming To PC

Scribblenauts Unlimited is coming to Windows, reports Polygon, saying the PC edition of 5th Cell's action/puzzle game will use Steamworks to distribute user-created content (thanks loonyboi). They offer some first-hand impressions of this version and its new interface:

Using the keyboard to quickly type in all those commands, Aubert was able to burn through the in-game event, which bundles a series of quests into a larger goal. 5th Cell promises more than 300 puzzles throughout the game.

Currently, the PC version of Scribblenauts Unlimited supports two control schemes: WASD movement for Max and click-to-move control with the mouse, similar to the tap-to-move scheme of previous Scribblenauts titles on Nintendo DS and iOS.

5th Cell confirmed during our demo that the Steam version of Unlimited will feature Steam achievements in addition to sharing of objects via Steam Workshop. But Slaczka declined to confirm whether Scribblenauts Unlimited would include any Team Fortress 2 goodies (or vice versa).

Borderlands 2 Footage

This trailer offers a play session on Borderlands 2 with Gearbox president Randy Pitchford, showing off co-op gameplay in the imminent role-playing shooter sequel (thanks nin). The clip runs about an hour, which is, well, long. Word is: "Gearbox's ever-passionate President Randy Pitchford joins us for some hardcore Borderlands 2 co-op action, a chat about the game's production and... wait, is that a Mechromancer?!" Continue here to read the full story.

The Repopulation Update

The Repopulation Website has an end of August update for this upcoming MMORPG. Word is: "Highlights include engagements which can scale in difficulty based on the number of players inside of them, energy tanks/shields/weapons, new character models, the implementation of medical scanners and aerosol weapons, particle weapons, improved NPC capabilities, an improved emote system, and much more."
