[Strongly Jaded Gamer] Borderlands 2 Pre-Release Squee
Its no secret that I love with a burning passion the unholy fusion of genre that was Borderlands–and if it was it isn’t now. Yes the game’s initial launch left a little to be desired with its spare narrative and repetitive level design. HOWEVER it was an experiment. One that was, really, really, well received. So as the progressive teases of Borderlands 2 ramp up with the proximity to release, I am only more excited. It’s encouraging that not only has a studio made a sequel that makes sense, it made one standing on the back of its predecessors successes and failures. From everything I’ve seen B’lands 2 has learned in every way it could from the mistakes made on vanilla B’lands.
I’m going to drop the new, “Introduction”, trailer here and then wait for you to pick your jaw up.
I mean, yes, its not out yet, the game could fall flat on its face, but I don’t think so. It’d take a concious effort to misstep at this point. I hope that there’ll be something to play at Escapist Expo, otherwise I’ll have more about it on the 21st.
Catch y’all next week!
