    “Borderlands” coming to Mac next month

    My lovely little Mac is turning into more of a gaming machine every day, thanks to so many companies actually making games for it. The latest? A Game-of-the-Year edition of Borderlands is coming (including every bit of the DLC that has been released), thanks to Feral Interactive. If you’re not on an Intel machine running Snow Leopard, you’re pretty much out of luck, but the other minimum requirements are pretty easy to meet these days. As of now, we don’t know if there’ll be cross-platform multiplayer, or even if this will be available on Steam (Oh, I do hope so!), but those are answers we might have to wait for. The game releases on December 3 for $49.95 in the United States.

    Next series to go full LEGO is “Pirates of the Caribbean”

    It’s time for your LEGO set to learn how to swashbuckle – in video game form, anyway. Traveler’s Tales announced today that the next series to get the full LEGO treatment is Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean.” The game will cover all four Pirates films, including the installment out next year, On Stranger Tides. Not-so-coincidentally, the game’s release will occur around the time of the film’s (May 2011). “Pirates of the Caribbean is a globally successful franchise based in action, adventure and humor perfectly suited for a LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game adaptation,” said Graham Hopper, executive vice president and general manager, Disney Interactive Studios. “Combining the excitement of playing as Jack Sparrow and other recognizable characters from the franchise will make the game fun for players of all ages throughout the world.” Hopefully it works out as well as the other film-to-LEGO adaptations.

    “nail’d” achievement list and pre-order bonus detailed

    Y’know, normally when we see lists of achievements out there in the wild before a game’s release, it’s because someone snuck around and got into places they shouldn’t. Not today, though. These were just given to us. So now you can judge for youself whether or not you want to undertake some of these racing tasks. (The full list is below the rest of this article.) In addition, today we also found out about a special GameStop pre-order bonus for getting the game (here are links to 360 and PS3 versions) – a special, snazzy nail’d shirt that is surprisingly fashionable. I don’t know if I’d ever wear one, but I’m also a lady. I don’t do faux bloodspatter. Keep in mind that the shirts come only with online pre-orders that get shipped to your house. Don’t go arranging any in-store pickups, or you’re probably out of luck, okay? It’ll
