UT4 Pre-Alpha Build Updated
Many of our readers surely know that you can get and play UT4 right now through Epic's UT forums. All you have to do is register on the forums here and visit this link to get started. (Click 'YES' then my recommendation is to get the Epic Launcher as it keeps the game up to date and has much smaller modular updates each week).
What you might not know is that the last several builds have done big work on mouse feel, and the latest build today increased the movement acceleration significantly. All these together make the game feel REALLY GOOD to play right now.
Additionally, we have a BeyondUnreal server set up to play CTF to your heart's content. You can join it in the server browser or by typing 'open mothership.beyondunreal.com' in the console. And make sure you join us tonight and tomorrow night for our weekly FragBU event from 8pm EDT until people get bored. More info is available in the FragBU thread on the forums.
Frag you later!!

Killing Floor 2 Dev Diary -- Shut Up And Take My Dosh!
IGN has posted Killing Floor 2 Dev Diary 2 that features gameplay footage and lots of blood. And lots of talking about lots of blood. The carnage looks so meaty and satisfying that I'm either feeling hunger pangs or I just can't wait to get my hands on the game.

Hammerlock and Torgue on BL2 Pre-Sequel
This is probably the video that they should have shown us first. I've been pretty cautiously optimistic on the Borderlands 2 Pre-Sequel thus far because the best stuff has been coming from Gearbox. Some of the weaker DLC from previous games had been farmed out, partly, to various studios and, frankly, it showed.
Hammerlock and Torgue team up to walk you through all of the new stuff in the Pre-Sequel. The gameplay mechanics do look quite different than in the previous game and could make for some interesting gunfights. And who doesn't love the idea of laser shotguns? I'm most excited, however, for the increase in story dialogue as told through the character you're playing. It seems like you'll get more story if you play through each time with a different character (or all at once with friends).

BU Podcast: Episode Fifteen Now Available! Playtest Special Edition!
This week we had a special treat. TWD visited Epic headquarters with several prominent community members and had a playtest and Q&A with Epic. While there, TWD got a bunch of the community members together to have a special podcast with several guests. They talk about just about everything, so it is quite long but also well worth listening to. Enjoy!
