Loot makes the world go round. It’s that quest for a gun with mighty numbers that can out-number the guns of anyone who stands against you, that can make a game so appealing. Borderlands 1 and 2 had this theme in common, as a bazillion guns awaited players on the planet of Pandora, provided that they could survive long enough to claim them. And the Pre-sequel is going to fill in plenty of gaps between those two games. Here’s what we learnt this week in an interview with two of the game's development leads.
Remember in the older days of gaming, where you could unlock extra content by playing for it, not paying for it? From a gaming standpoint, that was fantastic. From a business standpoint, that was downright stupid. Hell, as the Joker once said, if you’re good at something never do it for free. We’ll most likely never ever see expansive content for free again in gaming. But these five pieces of DLC were worth the extra cash.
All of us here at Lazygamer have played the heck out of Borderlands 2 – finishing the game multiple times with multiple characters. Despite knowing the game inside and out, we were still keen to get grippy with the handheld version of the game that’s set to hit the PlayStation Vita. That enthusiasm has been somewhat dampened.
Borderlands 2 was our game of the year in 2012 and is the game I’ve probably put the most time into over the last 5 yeas. So when I heard it was coming to the Vita, a device I do not like, I was intrigued.
I've been skeptical about Telltale Games' Tales from the Borderlands. Sure, the art style will fit, but how were they gonna take a gun happy game like Borderlands and turn it into a point-and-click choose-your-own-death game? Well, they have a plan, and it actually seems like it could be interesting.
I love internet conspiracies - they are fun and silly and outlandish. My favorite are all the Half Life 3 fake mathematics to prove that the game is actually coming. But Gearbox isn't going to let you do that to Borderlands 3. It just isn't in development.
February, the month of lurve. To many, it’s all about Valentines day. For me, it’s a month in which I realise that I don’t have to buy anything for my left hand except a new wig. Borderlands 2 is getting in on that cupid action, with some new DLC. Here’s what you‘ll find inside the romance of acid-tipped bullets.
The time has finally come - the top ten games of this generation. We are expecting your bile and vitriol; not everyone will agree with us, but it's important to remember that this list was based on what made us all happy to be gamers this generation. Not based on sales, scores, fancy metrics or algorithms, we fought it out to make this list, and we hope it just goes to show how many fantastic games we had in this generation.
So the staff here have all been going through their top 10 games and whining constantly about it as it’s impossible to narrow down a person’s top 10 games. Hogwash, this is easy and if you disagree with my list then you are obviously wrong. Simple.
Usually whenever there’ a Game of the Year Edition of a game coming, I get to moan about it said game not actually being anybody’s game of anything. Not today. Our actual game of the year from 2012, Borderlands 2 is getting just such a thing, to the surprise of absolutely nobody.
Last time we got a short film from Gearbox, it was Krieg: A Meat Bicycle Built for Two and it took us into the mind of Krieg the Psycho. Now it appears that we will be getting another short film this week, and we even get a teaser image.
Remember when Darryn told you about the new Borderlands 2 DLC and how he was expecting a new season pass? Well, he was wrong! While the current season pass finishes at the Tiny Tina DLC, the rest will have to be purchased ala carte.
