I have the amazing and rare ability to be at two places at the exact same time.

In one corner of San Francisco in 2K Marine, Borderland's game design director, Paul Hellquist and I talked about their fresh new DLC "The Secret Armory of General Knoxx."

Can you guess which development team had no plans at all for DLC while they were working on their brand new IP?
