With a GOTY edition of Borderlands 2 on the way, what better way to celebrate a year of loot ‘n shoot than with a look back at one of the most frustrating bosses ever created for a game? I’m talking Terramorphous the Invincible, several tons and hundreds of meters of Japanese sex-tentacles and bad attitude. And I finally beat the bastard.
Borderlands 2 is one of the few games where I actively use the co-op feature. A team of vault hunters travelling around Pandora is actually pretty damn fun, thanks to the dynamics that exist between a group of four different players. But that’s the team-based deadline right there, as you’ll never be able to expand your squad beyond that quatro limit. And there’s a reason for that.
Last year, we made Borderlands 2 our game of 2012, and at the rate that I’m still playing the game, it might be a 2013 winner as well. The latest DLC has injected some new life into the game, but developer Gearbox isn’t done yet as they’ll be bustin’ a level cap in yo ass soon.
Alcohol, the cause of of and solution to all of life's problems! Even though my monthly intake of the bitter liquid is around zero litres per month, plenty of folks still down a cold one on a Friday evening. And the only thing better than beer, is some Borderlands 2. But combining the two of them? Worth the eventual drunken shenanigans I reckon.
Even though it got off to a rocky start, the Borderlands 2 DLC has been worth repeated trips back to Pandora so far. The latest one, Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep has been particularly well crafted, tying several loose ends together in a fantastic take on Dungeons and Dragons. What a way to end off a year’s worth of DLC, right? Wrong!
No, not that kind of freaky, ya perves. The latest DLC for Borderlands is out today, and with it some more moichendising! Ever wanted to be a Borderlands character, but lacked the necessary cell-shaded facial muscles to go with your custom gun set? Well then your troubles are over, as a pair of masks have been released.
So who’s still playing Borderlands 2? I’ve already embedded my controller firmly into my TV as I struggle through Ultimate Vault Hunter mode, but dammit, I’m still hooked. And that’s just with one character. There’s still four more to get through, and as of next week, there’ll be a sixth.
For all the hate cast towards Gearbox for their mismanagement of the Aliens franchise, you have to appreciate all the effort they’ve put in to making Borderlands 2 a better, bigger game. Season pass holders have already been treated to 3 bits of expansive campaign DLC (two of which weren’t rubbish!) – and soon, there will be a fourth.
PAX East hit gaming with a vengeance this past weekend, and one game that was in the highlight crosshairs, was the shoot ‘n loot Borderlands 2. New details were revealed for that fantastic sequel, including a new Vault Hunter, DLC, new game modes and an increase in POWAH. More after the jump.
While Gearbox may be tugging at their collar with a stifled doh! every time someone brings up Aliens: Colonial Marines, at least that other game that they actually worked on is still doing well. With three out of four DLC packs down and one more to go, what’s next for Borderlands 2? Why, an experimental Vault Hunter, that’s what.
By now, it’s well documented that we happen to be utterly in love with Borderlands 2, our 2012 game of the year that isn’t Call of Duty Black Ops 2. Great guns, unreal monsters and even better characters made this one of the best titles of the year, something that plenty of other folks would agree on. What some other folks also agree on however, is that the loveable underage psychopath Tiny Tina is a racist stereotype. Those fools be crunk in the head yo.
Need to take down a few invincible bosses but happen to find yourself woefully underpowered in the guns department in Borderlands 2? Well good news then, because in honour of the upcoming third expansion pack to the game, Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt, you’ll have a chance to grab some rare shotguns. Check this link for details, and remember to hunt down the little blighters of Pandora…LIKE A SIR!
Well Borderlands 2 certainly cleaned up nicely at the Spike VGAs last night. In celebration of all the love bestowed upon it, the crew at Gearbox Software are celebrating by handing out brand new Shift codes to the community, that’ll be active for the entire weekend. Want ‘em? Then click on through the jump and reclaim them!
A new console. A hit game. Opportunity. Underpants. Profit! With the Wii U out this week locally, there’s more than a fair share of third party games arriving, from Mass Effect 3 to Batman Arkham City. So what about Borderlands 2 then? You’d expect that tablet controller to be a good fit for the loot-centric title. But you’d be wrong as well.
There’s nothing better in Borderlands 2, than that sweet moment when you get your hands on a rare gun. Maybe it’s a shotgun with the AI of a homicidal robot within it, asking you to kill more humans, or a revolver that could crack the planet with the sheer power behind each bullet fired. But you’d sooner see me hug a hipster than find one of those weapons. Unless you had a golden key for that special chest in Sanctuary, that is. Here’s how you can score some loot this weekend.
