Game Review Friday: Borderlands 2

Where do I start.  I usually begin these posts with an apology for not posting more.  Yeah…sorry.  I have been too busy, or my dog ate my posts or something, it’s not important.  What is important is what I have to say about Borderlands 2.

I spent a lot to time playing the original Borderlands, it was an amazing game and it is hard to believe that a sequel could live up to the original.  Before we get into whether Borderlands 2 accomplishes this monumental task, lets talk a little bit about what kind of games these are.

Borderlands is about killing things so that you can get their gear so that you can kill more things.  It is very like a First Person Shooter Diablo, in that the gear is the game.  I read somewhere once that games like this are like a pinata.  You smash things open so that you can see what is inside.  Finding out what is inside is the important part.  Anyone can go down to the store to buy some candy, but it will never taste as good as the candy that comes out of an exploding corpse.  Maybe that metaphor fell apart at some point, but hopefully you get the point.

So, as far as pinata type shooty games go, Borderlands was one of the best.  It had a great story, great game play, and a great sense of humour.  I spent no less than one million hours playing it.  I am only about 10 hours into Borderlands 2, but I would say that it is better in every way.  The story is much more involved, you feel like your character is actually playing an important role.  There are cameos for the characters from the first game, making the world feel more alive with the continuity.  The game play is much more solid, the enemy AI is improved, it feels like a very polished game.  The sense of humour is fantastic, having me laughing out loud at times.

I would say more, but this game is very new and in all honesty I want to get back to playing it.  If you want a different opinion, to see the other side of things, I suggest checking out todays Penny Arcade.

I’m done here.

Fish Loving Zombies

Here is a random picture I found on the dining room table today by Mr. Danger. It’s two zombies. One proclaiming his love of fish and the other asking if you also love fish. Amazing.
