Gearbox recently released a stripped down retro version of Borderlands 2 you can play in your browser. You can choose from one of the 4 new Borderlands 2 characters and fight hordes of enemies in an area 2d shooter. From the handful of games I played, I chose Salvador and made it to level 16. There is a fair amount of gun types to choose from but I seemed to prefer the machine guns to the others. Shotguns seemed to be a bit underpowered as the intial blast is strong but they took too long to reload.

Its a fun game to try out in anticipation for Borderlands 2 launch this September 18thand you can play it here: http://www.wubwub.eu/demake.php

New Borderlands 2 trailer dropped this morning. This one features the villain Handsome Jack and showcases a little of the four playable classes.

Can't wait to head back to Pandora. Thinking of playing the Gunzerker or Assassin at launch. What class will you roll?

A popular video game site recently wrote an article about everything they knew about Borderlands 2. Its a really great high level primer on Salvador The Gunzerker, Maya The New Siren, Zero the Assassin and Axton the Soldier. It also goes into detail a bit about the arch villain Handsome Jack and the other enemies you will fight this time around on Pandora.

If you have read everything ive posted on Borderlands 2 so far, not much is new, but if you missed a few posts and want a good view of what the game will be, you should check it out.

Recently read a cool article on Mashable about 10 awesome additions to Borderlands 2.

http://mashable.com/2012/07/20/borderlands-2-improvements/

A few things that caught my eye?

The Stash Is Persistent
Customize Your Character (shown in image above)
Beautiful Aurora Borealis in Pandora's Frozen Tundra (I enjoy awesome environments that immerse you in the game.

Some people felt the enemies in Borderlands were easy so 2K made them much more difficult. A recent article on Joystiq draws a picture of how much harder they can be.

Snip:

"New baddies include Threshers and Foreman's personal favorite, the Goliath. Goliath is a monstrous enemy with the singular focus to kill you.... Read All

I just pre-ordered Borderlands 2 for the PS3 at Gamestop with all extra goodies. Radtastic.

This past week was San Diego Comic Con and in typical fashion 2k was around to demo Borderlands 2.

A few morsels:

"It was really the Commando that did it for me, though the Assassin's pretty fantastic as well (more on him momentarily). But the Commando, with his wonderfully helpful turrets and outlandishly explosive upgrades, really won me over."

Go on....

"Having only messed with Roland a bit in the first game, I'll just say that while his turret stuff was neat, Axton (the Commando) is a whole other deal entirely. We were shown characters at levels 25 and 35, so we got to go pretty... Read All


Brand new Borderlands 2 trailer called "Wimoweh" dropped this morning. The trailer showcases some new stuff from the game briefly. Namely Lilith, the Siren from the original Borderlands is present and has Angel Wings? Also a new largish female character smashing a few things in a trash compactor? Sick. In the end its awesome to see new game footage but I would have used a different song.

I prefer Claptrap bringing the Wub Wub to The Lion Sleeps personally. Speaking of Wub Wub, you will be able to buy that as a shirt soon:

From a recent Borderlands forum post:

"Borderlands 2 will reward veterans of the first Borderlands with exclusive character customization elements -- here's a look at the character heads and skins that are unlocked when Borderlands 2 detects save data from the original Borderlands!"

Wow. So that ups the extra stuff you can get by a bit. If you pre-order the game not only do you get the premiere club goodies and if your pre-order from Gamestop you get even more. But if you have a save file from a previous game you get a few more extras now.

Waiting for them to announce the bonus for booting Borderlands 2 for the first time. I really like the Sledge bonus head.
