So! A while back I mentioned Saints Row 4 and how much I enjoyed it. Since then a lot of DLC has been released for it and while I haven’t bought all of it, I have paid attention.
And that’s how I saw this.
Now, despite laughing at the trailer, I had no idea who that girl was or what “Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin'” was. So I went to the Tubes of You to find out. And that’s how I found out about Anthony and Ashly Burch.
And then I ran across an episode of HAWP (gotta use the acronym to prove I’m hip, dontcha know) where Anthony talked about writing Borderlands 2.
Which reminded me that I’d picked up Borderlands 2 during the Steam summer sale and never touched it.
So I touched it.
For about thirty hours.
Borderlands 2 is a great game and I’m very, very sad I didn’t play it sooner. I should have just dumped that pretentious, jumped-up Bioshock Infinite and gone for this. It’s fun, it’s funny, and it’s got one of the best villains in recent gaming memory with Handsome Jack.
I actually bought another copy for my daughter and she convinced her friends to buy it and it’s like Catan where it’s always good but at its peak when you’ve got four people.
(I think I may have mentioned in the past that I think co-op multiplayer is the only good kind of multiplayer? Yeah, this game proves me right. Again.)
So if you like FPS games and/or you like to laugh and/or you like playing games with your friends, definitely check it out.
I beat this game as Zero, Aston, and Salvador, the last two on the hard difficulty.
The first Borderlands had better guns and better shooting mechanics and better music but everything else is light years better in the sequel. Of all the shooters I’ve played Borderlands 1 and 2 have my favorite graphics and style.
