It was the night before Borderlands 2 launch and all through Pandora... Not a creature was stirring except for a bad-ass Skag wearing a Fedora! 50 bazillion guns were hung by the chimney with care in hopes that would use them to light up the morning air!

@panickedthumb and I were nestled all snug in our cots as visions of loot danced in our XBox(1). @panickedthumb as a Commando and I ask a Gunzerker had just settled our Borderlands game saves for a long nights overture.

When out in the tundra there rose such a clatter I sprang from my cot to see what was the matter. Away to the window I flew like a flash and blew it open with a shotty that does fire and acid damage... Totally messed up that window and in retrospect opening it would have been fine too...

The moon on Pandora that showed the new fallen snow gave the lustre of treasure chests seen far below. When what should my wondering scan should appear, but Handsome Jack and a midget wriggling with fear.

A crazy dude with a face stapled on, I knew in a moment I wanted to beat his face with a baton. More rapid than eagles from his Moon base they came, twas a crap ton of robots that all looked the same. But @panickedthumb had an idea to call all our friends by name:

On Claptrap, on Zero on Axton and Maya! On Brick, on Salvador, on Roland, Lilith and Mordecai(these names are hard to rhyme ok?). Get ready my friends, we will not take a fall! Now shoot away, now shoot away now shoot away all!


Hope your first few moments of the game go well. Let us know how it goes, ok? :D

(1) I am playing this on the PS3, but that doesn't rhyme with cot. Nor does PC.

I really really hate claptrap.

Oh? Why is that?

I think he is pretty cool.

I find him incredibly annoying and obnoxious. He's like that one friend you know who tries really hard to be funny.

I can see that. I didn't respond that way myself.

I guess he get's more respectable over the time.

Hi. How's the game everyone?

I am at the character selection screen now. So far, it's good. Report much more later!

I love claptrap. I find him to be very funny.

This was a joy to read :)

I thought Claptrap was hilarious in the intro this time around. Way funnier than last time. In the Robolution DLC from the first game, I got so annoyed with Claptrap. I was afraid those old annoyances would spill through to this game, but so far so good.

Dodson, I had rage all over again. I gave this game about an hour and a half to warm up to me (I captured video of me playing until I gave up and turned it off). It sort of did when I got a gun with an explosive round, but I was like. Ugh. Bored. Are there some villagers I can shoot? I guess I'm not a FPS guy. I can see why people like it, but I'll pass.
