On the hostile, bandit-ridden planet of Pandora, there is one thing that draws off-world attention: The Vault. This mysterious alien structure is rumored to hold treasures of fantastic power and wealth, and so it attracts fortune-seeking corporations...

The RPG/Shooter has been tried multiple times in the past with some good and some bad results. How will Borderlands be remembered?

The other main component of the game is loot. As any RPG fans know there is nothing more satisfying than finding or earning sweet loot. Borderlands identifies loot on a color scale: white-green-blue-purple-orange, with white being the most common and...

"It remains a part of a series in need of more things to do than going around guns blazing for XP. "

I was not a fan of the first Borderlands. That fact will be highly evident in the following review, as I attempt to explain how Gearbox has one-upped themselves in just about every imaginable way

There aren’t many games that can boast they have more than a bajillion guns in their game; Borderlands can, and still holds the crown. I got to wondering how a game as big and successful as the original Borderlands was, how it could be improved upon....

Stellar writing and a host of small improvements help Borderlands 2 stand tall on the shoulders of its predecessor.

A ton of great mission writing and dialogue ; Enticing loot and experience rewards ; Intriguing skill trees ; Rich, inviting gameworld

Borderlands 2 takes the franchises’s successful formula of tons of guns and absurd humor combined with enough bells and whistles to make you drool like a dog at feeding time and simply updates it instead of changing it completely. That’s okay by me...

When I was in my first year of college my friends and I made a video for my film class, of which the only line I really remember is,

The fact that I spent so much time playing Borderlands and enjoying it came a bit of a surprise to me. I’m not the biggest fan of first person shooters, but I do like an RPG if I’ve got the time to spare. This ate up a lot of my time and the fact that...
