Borderlands 2 is $4.99 on Steam right now until July 30th. You can play the original for FREE on Steam until Sunday 1PM PST. You can also preorder Borderlands 2 now for $59.99.
As of right now the phenominally successful Arma 2 DayZ mod lists 882,168 unique players. The mod is still in its alpha stage and suffers quite a large number of issues such as griefers ALT-F4ing out of combat, “ghosting” (momentarily changing servers to flank players) and connection issues. Along with bugs in general. Regardless of these issues the mod is still going strong. I think players generally feel that the right issues aren’t being fixed at the right time but fixes are coming in on a semi-regular basis.
The Just Cause 2 multiplayer mod is in development again. Retail (legit) copies will be required according to the developers.

Another World of Warcraft expansion has been announced titled Mists of Pandaria. It will introduce the MMOs first neutral race – pandas. Yes a PANDA race. Check out the Mists of Pandara trailer. As you can imagine trade chat is booming with players who are making jokes about the new expansion. As is Twitter and the forums. Not only are the martial artist pandas nearly a ripoff of Jack Black’s Kung Fu Panda but it appears that there is a pet battle system similar to Pokemon.
Here is a list of new features in the expansion. Now that World of Warcraft literally is for kids, there’s always Star Wars: The Old Republic on Dec 20.
Fans are creating a Starcraft MMO from a mod called World of Starcraft.
