I thought pre-ordering Borderlands 2 on the PS3 was a really good idea. Or... at least it seemed like a good idea at the time. See, back then I mostly played games on the PS3 but what I didn't realize at the time was that my tastes were quickly shifting back to the PC. When Borderlands 2 dropped, like many people I created a Gunzerker and had an absolute blast playing the game. Then the Mecromancer free DLC dropped and I created a new Mecromancer game. The Mecromancer was really fun and I swapped between both games playing a bit as the Mecromancer and as the Gunzerker. Then Travis got me Borderlands 2 on PC for Christmas and I started a new Gunzerker game on PC. I'd also created a couple other characters to try out but by the time the holiday season was over I was tired of playing the same missions over again and stopped playing the game.

After the Humble Borderlands Bundle dropped WhiteboySlim started a regular Borderlands 2 event and I started yet another character, this time as the Psycho Krieg and since so much time had passed I was having fun playing the main story again. We stopped the regular Borderlands 2 event having progressed a good ways through the game but I recently I got the itch to continue. So recently I started playing the game again continuing where I left off with Krieg and the main story.

Yo Call of Duty, i'm really happy for you, i'm going to let you finish but Boderlands is one of the best shooters of all time!

I'm really proud that we voted Borderlands 2 the Cheerful Ghost Game of the Year in 2012. Actually the top two winners that year were Borderlands 2 and FTL so yeah, double happy about that. Both FTL and Borderlands 2 are great games I keep coming back to playing every so often so they both make sense to get the top billing that year. Borderlands 2 is a great game to play with friends and contains just the right amount of difficulty, loot and progression to make it a continued friend multiplayer staple even now.


Sooner or later i'll complete Borderlands 2 and do a final write up of my thoughts on the whole game. But after four years what do you think of Borderlands 2? Still good or do you think something different after this much time has passed?

I think it's a game like Diablo and others that will be playable for years. Definitely one of my faves.

Some sweet looking deals for the game on Steam (see link below) until the 19th. The game is $5, GotY Edition is $10. Then there's the $106 "Borderlands Take Over Your Life Bundle." There's also an $80 "Borderlands Triple Pack."

I played Borderlands 2 when it was free-to-play for a few days. Steam shows that I only spent 2 hours playing it. Honestly I'm not even sure if I really played it that long, I know I didn't get very far into it at all. There's not very much of it that I remember. The reviews for the game are great, but a demo would be greater.

I recommend starting with the original Borderlands. It's a solid game and the campaign is more to my taste. That said the original + DLC is $30 on Steam right now so wait for a better deal smile
