I Punch the Initiative

Borderlands is one of my all-time favorite first-person shooters - it offered a great combination of action, humor, a multitude of guns and visual style unlike anything else out there. Sure, it had its share of problems, but I was more than happy to overlook the flaws because of the experience it provided. Of course a sequel was announced - and my anticipation for this was off the charts. There have been several improvements made to the game - some overt, some less so but the final project reminds me why I still like the original Borderlands so much and why this franchise remains one of my favorites.

Everybody gets a bullet!

Well… if it isn’t broke...

Borderlands 2 really IS the sequel to Borderlands. Largely unchanged from the original, the offspring of loot-grinding RPGs and wild FPSs will feel awfully familiar to anyone who played the previous game. That’s my way of saying I’m not going to rehash the entire game as if you’ve never played the original.

That’s not to say NOTHING is different. Several small tweaks have been made to make the good parts better, and they even found a way to patch a few of the smaller leaks in the boat.

Borderlands 2 takes place five years after the events of the original. Opening the Vault at the end of the main story released a giant monster, no loot, and then caused a mysterious mineral known as Eridium to spread throughout the planet. Leveraging this...
