Oh boy, more Borderlands 2 content! Just what I need, another reason to add to the 212 hours I've spent on Pandora - and that's NOT counting the first Borderlands. Okay, Gearbox, let's see if your hellborn, bloodlusting, maniac can tempt me back to the land of Bandits and Bullymongs. It's time to take Kreig the Psycho for a thrill kill joyride.
It is only one day until any Borderlands 2 player willing to drop $9.99/800MSPs will get to meet the new Psycho character, Krieg. He is lean, mean and ultra-keen to cleave you in two. This new video highlights some of the skills that Krieg brings to the band of Vault Hunters - they mostly consist of the ability to run straight at the enemy and take a Bullymong of damage.
If you're one of the Mac owners out there who purchased Borderlands 2 from the Mac App Store, you've probably noticed a few key features have been, well, almost completely missing. Aspyr Media is here to save the day with a brand new patch that brings things (mostly) up to speed, including achievements, a handful of miscellaneous fixes, and access to leaderboards, all through the safe little garden that is the Mac App Store.
By now you've heard the news about the new character coming to Borderlands 2 and the bump in the level cap. The Psycho Bandit Krieg won't be arriving until May, but the "Ultimate Vault Hunter Pack" is dropping next week. A title update will accompany the upgrade, adding a few new items to the Black Market.
The world of computer game journalism is a slick place full of the latest multimedia and snazzy events. Or is it? Sometimes it’s a bloke with a camcorder filming a screen during a SXSW event. The excitement for this new trailer does not come from the slightly odd angle, but the fact it is a video teasing an upcoming vault hunter for Borderlands 2.
Admit it, you saw this coming from a mile away. With all the cool (and not-so-cool) player skins available for the five classes in Borderlands 2, it was only a matter of time before Gearbox started charging us for some super-cool new heads and threads. Gearbox just announced 15 new player skin and head combinations. That's three for each character, if it's too early in the day for you to math.
We are only a few days away from the third installment of Borderlands 2 DLC. "Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt" will go live on January 15. Jason and I have played through the new adventure, and I really can't say anything more than that. I can say that if Gearbox decided to have a weekend event where they offered high powered weapons, you should probably take advantage of it. Oh, what a coincidence! Sir Hammerlock himself, or whoever happens to be running the @ECHOcasts Twitter feed, just announced a "Gear Up Weekend." What does that mean, exactly?
The 12 Days of Christmas are done; stop crying, time to get over it. Instead we welcome the 52 weeks of a new year and on the second week of 2013 my XBLA Sale gave to me - loads of 2K reductions including half price DLC on Borderlands 1 and 2.
If you have somehow managed to NOT pick up Borderlands, Borderlands 2, or the Borderlands 2 Season Pass, today is your lucky day. All three items are on sale on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace. The original Borderlands is going for $9.99, Borderlands 2 is on sale for $39.99, and the BL2 Season Pass is available for 1800 MSP, or $22.50. (It normally costs $30.) These prices are available for today only, so buy them now!
The third installment of Borderlands 2 DLC, "Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt," was made official via Twitter yesterday. Everyone who's still interested in roaming the wastes of Pandora heard about it a few days ago, when several key details were leaked in the latest title update. Well the Bonerfart is out of the bag, isn't it? "Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt" will be arriving on your gaming machine of choice next year. Wait, next year?
Are your ready? More Borderlands 2 DLC is heading our way. Details have been surfacing for "Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt," the third add-on for the role-playing shooter. Similar to the two "leaks" that basically announced "Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty" and "Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage," details for "Big Game Hunt" appeared in the most recent patch.
Borderlands 2 received a a rather large patch today. The 3 MB patch offers better Badass Rank protection, reduces the level cap for DLC raid bosses in Normal Mode, fixes the Fleshstick leveling exploit, and it also alters how Amp damage is applied to projectiles. Basically, they nerfed the Bee Shield, so I hope you didn't spend too much time farming it. You can see a full list of the patch details after the break.
Borderlands 2 content previously exclusive to certain retailers and collector's editions is now available to everyone, for a price. The Creature Slaughter Dome will allow players to compete in a bonus Circle of Slaughter challenge located at the Wildlife Exploitation Reserve. The Circle of Slaughter challenges have been around since the first Borderlands. Players must face waves of progressively more difficult enemies in an enclosed arena. It's basically a survivor mode.
Borderlands 2 dropped some more DLC love on us before the holiday break. "Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage" is the second story add-on for the addictive shooter-looter franchise. It blasts onto the scene amidst some of the biggest launches of the year. Does Mr. Torgue have enough explosive charisma to distract veteran Vault Hunters from Black Ops 2 and Halo 4? Yes. Briefly.
Ok. We get it. Borderlands 2 is a badass game. It's got badass guns, badass enemies, badass characters, and even a Badass Rank (which spontaneously resets itself from time to time). I love me some Borderlands 2, but I think I'm over all the badass stuff. It's kind of played. Just look at this AMA Gearbox writer Anthony Burch did for Reddit yesterday (in character as Mr. Torgue). It's kind of fun while simultaneously being kind of dumb. I like it, but I'm ashamed of myself for liking it. I guess that's the point.
