Alright, confession time. I haven’t had this big of a guilty pleasure since I downloaded Miley Cirus’ The Climb back in 2009 (Which I played over Ventrillo during WoW raid bosses to aggravate the hell out of our main healer). At leas that’s what I keep telling myself…
But Borderlands? Keep it coming! This franchise is fun, addicting, and I don’t feel guilty when I walk away from it for a month. I loved Skyrim; I will always love Skyrim. But take a a couple weeks off and I had no clue what I was doing, or who I was supposed to sacrifice someone to, or what skill I was building.
Set to debut sometime in late 2014, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel takes place before the storyline of the original in the series, and focuses mainly on Handsome Jack and his own personal bag of problems.
What is really building the excitement is that of the four new characters, all of which I want to play right now and forsake my date night in downtown Chicago, is Clap-trap! We get to play as the little, lovable guy. Also making the character choice list is Athena (the gladiator-esque lady) from the first game, Wilhelm (a cybernetic junkie) and Nisha from Lynchwood (Sheriff) – this isn’t to mention that Lynchwood was yours truly’s favorite zone in the BL2.
