The Week In Games: Loot And Shoot With Your Friends

Illustration for article titled The Week In Games: Loot And Shoot With Your Friends

After a long wait, the new Borderlands is finally coming out this week. Borderlands 3 is releasing Friday for PS4, Xbox One, and PC and bringing with it some ridiculous number of guns. Maybe too much loot, really?

Some folks call games like Borderlands 3 “shlooters.” This is a silly word, but it’s particularly strange for me. I’ve helped my father and others do floor covering installation and repair in my past. And one popular product in floor covering is called Schluter, an orange plastic sheet you lay underneath tile before installing. They are pronounced nearly the same way, and every single time someone says shlooter, I am reminded of installing shower tile.

Beyond Borderlands 3, Gears 5 is coming out for everyone later this week and all The Walking Dead games made by Telltale are being rereleased in one convenient package. For hockey fans, NHL 20 is almost here. NASCAR fans also have NASCAR Heat 4 dropping toward the end of the week. And if you look close, you’ll find a 3DS game lurking down there. A little something for everyone, it seems.

Greedfall looks fantastic, but I can only pick up one new game at a time (it’s not about the money, it’s about my limited free time!) so Borderlands 3 it is!  Looking forward to reading reviews on both games, though.
