: Borderlands: Claptastic Voyage screenshots, we got 'em

The first and only big story piece of downloadable content released for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel earlier this week, and I just finished playing through it. As usual, I took a bunch of screenshots as I played through. Fair warning: these screenshots contain general spoilers for the content, including special areas, boss fights, and cinematic cutscenes. Peruse at your own risk.

Going through them just now, I realized that I basically only ever use one gun on my Wilhelm. I tried out the new glitch weaponry, but nothing works quite as well as the Moonface for me. Expect our review for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel: Claptastic Voyage later today.

: Measuring How Much "Standby Mode" Electricity For Game Consoles Will Cost You

An anonymous reader writes: Modern game consoles have a "standby" mode, which you can use if you want the console to instantly turn on while not drawing full power the whole time it's idle. But manufacturers are vague about how much power it takes to keep the consoles in this standby state. After a recent press release claiming $250 million worth of electricity was used to power Xbox Ones in standby mode in the past year, Ars Technica decided to run some tests to figure out exactly how much power is being drawn. Their conclusions: the PS4 draws about 10 Watts, $10-11 in extra electricity charges annually. The Xbox One draws 12.9W, costing users $13-$14 in extra electricity charges annually. The Wii U draws 13.3W, costing users $14-$15 in extra electricity charges annually. These aren't trivial amounts, but they're a lot less than simply leaving the console running and shutting off the TV when you aren't using it: "Leaving your PS4 sitting on the menu like this all year would waste over $142 in electricity costs."

: Obscure Video Games: Oh No!

"Oh no!" is what I say whenever I hear somebody's put out another runner game. I completely lost interest in the genre years ago. However, back in 2000, it was still a fairly novel concept. That's when Asmik Ace Entertainment released Oh No! for the original PlayStation in Japan.

In Oh No! you control a group of (literally) snot-nosed brats who are trying to get to the end of each stage without going hungry or getting killed. The boys run uncontrollably forward, either in a horizontal or vertical line; you can switch between the formations with the triangle button. To keep your health meter up, the boys must eat hamburgers lying on the ground. Avoid the fish sandwiches, though. They will deplete your health because, as we all know, street fish is just nasty. At the end of each stage, Oh No! gives you a nice change of pace -- a dancing mini-game similar to Bust a Groove.

So should you dig up Oh No! and give it a try? I would say yes, if you can find it fairly cheap. I had a lot of fun with it. The wacky characters are quite amusing, and (for a PS1 game) the cel-shaded graphics are surprisingly good. Maybe they should have called it "Oh Yeah!"

: Weekend Deals: $10 Skyrim Legendary, 25% Off GTA V PC

Whether its fighting random dragons or avoiding helicopter spawns, there's lots of solid deals this weekend for PC gamers.

If you know for sure you're going to buy Grand Theft Auto V on PC on release day next month, you can snag 25% off this weekend via our special code here. For $45, you'll get to enjoy RockStar's DRM and play a 1.5 year old game. Seriously, best deal of the century.

The same digital retailer is running a sale on a ton of Bethesda titles including the Elder Scroll V: Skryim Legendary Edition for only $10. The deal is so good that the title is currently "out of stock" - but GMG is guaranteeing that every purchase thru the weekend will receive a copy by March 31st.

In the console department, things are a bit more light but there's a pretty good deal on a Mario Party 10 + amiibo combo for $52 at Newegg - though uh, the title hasn't exactly won raving reviews.

This isn't clickbait. This isn't some article cashing in on hypothetical fan art of an Xbox turning into Megatron or a post about those awesome Mega Drive/PlayStation Transformers. This is my life, you fools. I've spent time pouring over this existential question. The world needs to know: what if videogame consoles were Transformers? Here are the Transformers they would be, mostly framed through the IDW comics because those are rad.
