The talk of the gaming world over the last few weeks has largely revolved around the Borderlands franchise. Gearbox's looter shooter is set to make its return later this year, but what about the past few games? Are you among those who need to catch up with Borderlands and get a reminder of what the series is all about?

Xbox is offering up something cool for Xbox Live Gold members, giving them a free weekend with Borderlands: The Handsome Collection. If you're a Gold member, get together with friends and take on a few missions in either Borderlands 2 or Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel for no extra charge. If you're not feeling those, WWE 2K19 and Dead By Daylight: Special Edition are also both having free weekends.

Elsewhere, Nintendo is offering up the best from Matt Makes Games, so now's a good time to jump into Celeste and TowerFall. Enter the Gungeon is also getting new content, so be sure to check that out while it's on sale for both PS4 and Nintendo Switch.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
