Wednesday 13 November 61700 Shares
SEGA, the company that gave us such great characters as Gunstar, Vectorman and Sonic, has decided to have acclaimed Borderlands creators make a new Phantasy Star Online.
The new Phantasy Star game, code named "The PSO3 project", is to be the quintessential be-all end-all game that brings the Phantasy Star series "Screaming and kicking into the new age of gaming!"
Diehard fans of the series are dubious. Due to the previous track record of Gearbox's last SEGA title Aliens: Colonial Marines and how hard that game flopped and is seen as "The worst game ever made in the 20th century!" With reviewers saying;
"I believe that I just wasted an hour if my life!"- Games mag+
"I need to get drunk and high to enjoy this s**t!"- Electronics video games, now with pictures!
"Now that I have played this, I think I can now fully enjoy E.T. for Atari 2600!"-That one gaming mag that didn't have that long of a run but was still entertaining even though they were reviewing N64 games while we were playing PS3... You know... The one that had that guy that got in trouble and due to a lawsuit they went bankrupt and had to close... Yea, that one. Magazine.
But despite recent lawsuits between the two companies SEGA is willing to acknowledge how well the Borderlands series has sold over the past few years and decided that having Gearbox work on this valuable IP can possibly make them more money in the long run.
Phantasy Star Online 3 is slated to possibly be released Q8 2023.
On other news Gearbox has just announced that they are now working on their new game Borderlands: The Sequel to the Pre-Sequel Prequel! They have informed of an complete overhaul to the world, weapons, and classes playable characters to choose from along with a new end boss named Dark Falz!
More on Borderlands: The Sequel to the Pre-Sequel Prequel! coming on a later date.

Giant Squid Washes Ashore on Lake Michigan Michigan DNR were called to Leland to the report of a giant squid which had washed ashore. Michigan DNR Marine Biologist Dr. Debra Polowotski arrived at Good Harbor Bay and confirmed the 21 foot-long giant squid to be a very rare fresh-water species of genus Architeuthis. “We thought they were already in Lake Erie, we had no idea they were in Lake Michigan. This is first time there’s been an actual specimen recovered, so this is very exciting”, she said. It is believed that a few of the squid escaped from the Cleveland Sea World complex during the great Northeast blackout of 2003 when they were very young, and somehow made it into Lake Erie. According to Dr. Polowotski, the squid were kept contained in Lake Erie, as the Detroit River is too narrow and shallow for the squid to swim upstream. “They are intimidated by closed-in spaces. They need a lot of room. You have to remember that this is a very big animal”, she said. Dr. Polotwotski also confirmed that the squid is a female and further examination of the corpse indicated that it had recently laid eggs. “Hopefully the walleye can keep the tiny-giant squid population under control, else there is some cause for concern”, said Dr. Polowotski. “Boaters and swimmers really need to exercise some caution”. The animal was discovered by Bob Ritchie and his sister Jill, both of Romeo. “We were just, you know, taking an evening walk along the beach, heading out to the sandbar when we stumbled across it”, said Bob. “We were singing, drinking whiskey out of the bottle, not thinking about tomorrow. But something like this really does make you stop and think”, he said. DNR officials removed the animal from the beach and took it to an undisclosed location for further study.
New Laws in VA to Ban Hiding "painted rocks" in Public Spaces A new law goes into effect September 1st 2017 that will essentially make it a misdemeanor to paint rocks. Even more severe, if you are caught hiding "painted rocks" in public spaces you can be charged with a felony and face hefty fines or even jail time. Lauren Painter, a spokesman for the Virginia Public Health Organization states, "Painting and hiding rocks in and around the country is becoming an epidemic. At first it is just once or twice a week. Before you know it, you are skipping meals and staying awake until early in the morning painting." A former "rocker", who wishes to remain anonymous, told reporters that for her it started out as "...fun family activity. After only about a month, I was forgetting to feed my kids, not sleeping, and hiding the "best rocks" from friends and family. State health officials warn VA residence to contact their local law enforcement immediately or call 800-ROCKHLP if they know someone who has lost control because of the new craze.l, especially if there are children involved
