I am late to the game. I remember seeing ads for Borderlands 2 on buses, and I didn’t assume it would be the kind of game I would like. But after Telltale announced they were doing one of their new style of interactive cinematic games with the franchise, I decided I’d check out the franchise. I got the first game during the Steam winter sale, and when I’d worn that out, I picked up a Steam code for the second game on Amazon.
I would not have believed that I would take so much interest in a game that, underneath it all, could fairly be described as a free-for-all killing motherfuckers with wild abandon. With jokes. Overall, I wouldn’t say it’s a better game than, say, Fallout New Vegas, but I’m pretty happy with what it is. So much that I was willing to actually pay nearly sixty dollars to add the Game of the Year edition to my XBox collection, because the one person I play online games with also had the game.
Having played through most of the main DLC packs before the end of the game, I am currently sorely outclassing these trogs, especially since I’m playing the Mechromancer in BFF mode. I have farmed the altar in Dragon Keep enough that I’m among those who must express doubts that you can get a legendary weapon in this way.
