Right now, I'm sitting in a hotel room in Tokyo, preparing my body for the onslaught which will be Tokyo Game Show. I could be at home, anxiously awaiting the arrival of the two copies of Borderlands 2 I ordered for the wife and I to play. But noooooooooo. I had to travel halfway across the world to spend time in a culture that doesn't want me here and write about games with questionable chances of ever being playable in my nation of origin. What an idiot I am.
I guess I'll just have to watch the launch trailer over and over again to compensate. Borderlands 2 arrives tomorrow, as does our review. And don't forget to check out who the Dtoid staff are calling dibs on. I don't want to spoil anything there, but with only two characters left playable, you have a fifty-fifty shot of guessing who I'll be playing.
