Christmas come early, kiddos! The long-suspected, basically inevitable sequel to “Borderlands” has just been announced by Gearbox and 2K Games, with plans to debut it at Gamescom and then PAX Prime a few days later. Predictably, there are no real details outside of your typical “better, faster, stronger” industry fluff, but I think we should start seeing some hard data sooner rather than later. The game will actually be released in 2012, although the exact date still seems a bit loose.
Honestly, I have zero interesting news developments for this one, so I’ll just pontificate for a second about how great the original “Borderlands” was. Did you play it? Did you? It was awesome. It’s like if “Diablo” had sex with “Fallout 3.” It’s decent enough by yourself, but get a friend involved, it’s about as fun as a game can be for at least 20 hours. It’s why we’re all giving Gearbox a polite pass on “Duke Nukem Forever.” They meant well, and they made “Borderlands.” Sssh, it’s okay, Randy. Let’s just not speak of it ever.
