Guns. Borderlands is about guns. Well, guns in a sense, the list does include rocket launchers.
Violence. In a nutshell, these are the two things Borderlands is about. Guns and Violence.
I liked Borderlands a lot, I played it a lot. But I’m a sucker for a Diablo clone that offers me near endless targets and random rewards. In this case, guns. Each with roughly 5-7 components that randomly generated make for millions of possible combinations.
Always one of those games that was fun alone, yet struck me as something that would be levels more entertaining with friends. Sadly, it wasn’t until after I departed my gaming household for domestic solitude that I found the game.
So Borderlands 2 is coming down the pipe. Each trailer flashing bright words offering more guns, more enemies, more excitement. Dialogs are recorded and articles written where the developers tell us ‘they saw what they did wrong, changed some things bring the sequel more in line with what they want to do.’
I have faith. In this more than other things. I believe they’ll deliver an excellent experience worthy of praise and reward for years to come.
In the meantime, i’m trying to wrap my head around their 87 bagillionder guns they’re proposing.
