Borderlands players: Don't go grinding purple hauls


Please stick to the commons and the blues that you're used to

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel's Jack the Doppelganger is too sexy for his shirt


But he leaves it on anyway
Nov 11
 
I frown on the idea that additional Vault Hunters are being offered for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel's season pass in place of story DLC (rather than in addition to it, as Gaige the Mechromancer and Krieg the Psycho were in B...

What I want from Borderlands 3


Other than, like, it being announced
Oct 28
 
[WARNING: This video contains MAJOR SPOILERS for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel] I finished the story mode in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel the other day which subtly teases what we might be seeing in Borderlands 3. It got me real excited, and seeing as I'm a big old Borderlands nerd; I couldn't help but postulate on what Borderlands 3 might be like... if it ever gets made.

Kind of unfair, since I had a head start
Oct 17

I think I started developing Space Madness playing Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel


These jokes are bad, even for me
Oct 16
 
Max and I finally made it to Pandora's moon, Elpis, in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. We're really spacing out at this point, but luckily I was bringing bad jokes and impromptu singing in full effect.

He's a polygonist
Oct 15
 
Max and I continue to grope around blindly in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. Hear us talk about space-related camp movies, and make NBA Jam references. Then Max gets really horny about videogames. Oh, and we shoot psychopaths or whatever...




I whipped everyone in the first 15 minutes of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel


Well, not everyone. But I definitely have a problem
Oct 14
 
Max and I jumped into Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel so we could hang out with Sp'Australians (Space Australians), and look for Moon Wizards. Max doesn't really care for Borderlands, but I'm a big old dork for it. At least we can agree it's more interesting than Destiny.




You fools! I have dibs on [DLC Character #1] in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel!


Because the best things in life aren't free
Oct 13
 
Fools. You poor, poor, poor, poor fools. It's almost as if you don't even like winning at life. I mean, I guess there's nothing wrong with choosing Athena, Claptrap, Nisha, or Wilhelm as your go-to character in Borderlands: T...

Attention Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel buyers: I have dibs on Wilhelm


He's not a bad guy...yet
Oct 11
 
Back in 2012 I had dibs on Zer0 from Borderlands 2. I didn't regret it! I completed the game several times with him and embarked upon the DLC with a smile on my face. But Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel doesn't have Zer0, which is a major bummer. Instead, I'll be rocking Wilhelm. One ninja's loss is another epic beard's gain.




To any Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel players out there: I have dibs on Athena


Sorry, she's mine
Oct 11
 
Two years ago, Chris, Tara, Conrad, and Andy each called dibs on a Vault Hunter for Borderlands 2 before I ever could, and so I was never able to play it. All I could do was sit there looking at my copy, wishing I had ca...

Even Sonic would tell him to cool it
Jul 24
 
Back with more impressions from playing Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, I had some first-hand playtime with the cybernetic tough guy, Wilhelm the Enforcer, which I would like to relate to you with my mouth. Wilhelm may not be all he's cracked up to be, yet. But he's got a couple of interesting surprises.

Handsome Jack loves his own voice in this Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel trailer


'New ending!'
May 28
 
As Handsome Jack was preparing for his role in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, he caught a glimpse of the future that was in store for him. He didn't like that very much, so he retconned it. And, not only did he change the timeline of events, he did so in a rather grating way. Either you love him or you hate him, I guess.
