Borderlands 2: Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep DLC lets you punch a man until he explodes. It’s utterly ludicrous and we’ve captured it for all to see. VG247′s Sam Clay is the one doing all the punching. We’re now afraid of him.

Aliens: Colonial Marines received a patch yesterday from Gearbox Software on Steam, only to be pulled due to problems reported such as missing downloadable content and and not being able to use ini tweaks due to anti-cheating changes. Gearbox said it pulled the patch until it could figure out what was causing the corrupt DLC error, and later on in t he night it re-released the patch stating that the reported problems had been solved. The firm said on its forums it “continuing to work on updates for all platforms, including the hot fix support mentioned at PAX,” and that more details would be released once finalized. The patch which was re-released added a toggle for the film grain filter and increased security to address cheats and exploits.

Mac port developer Aspyr has advised that it has released an update for the OS-X version of Borderlands 2. The patch adds leaderboards, achievements and “more importantly, multiplayer co-op with their Game Center friends”. Hopefully that last one means the much-touted cross-platform compatibility with PC is also back, having vanished thanks to a Gearbox update to the Windows version last year. Aspyr has also made DLC available as in-game purchases, and is offering 50% off the shooter RPG sequel on the Mac App Store.

Aliens: Colonial Marines still has not received a new released date for Wii U having missed a targeted March launch. A Sega representative simply told Gamespot that the publisher has no comment on the matter, and Gearbox and port developer Demiurge are also playing mum. The shooter attracted a great deal of attention at release due to its poor critical reception, and discrepancies between promotional materials and the final product have even drawn the wrath of the UK’s Advertising Standards Agency.
