Gone Gold - Borderlands 2

Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford tweets that Borderlands 2 is gold, following last month's word that the game was complete and on track for its release next month: "Borderlands 2 is now GOLD (360, PS3 EU, PS3 NA, Win PC)! PSN, PS3 JP + others imminent. Official statement to come when all ballots are in." VG247 notes that there is a pretty funny ESRB description for the role-playing shooter sequel:

his is a first-person shooter in which players join rebel forces to take down an oppressive corporation on the fictional planet of Pandora. As players explore open-world environments, they complete missions to gain experience and increase their characters' skills/abilities. Players use machine guns, sniper rifles, flamethrowers, explosives, and weaponized vehicles to kill human-like characters and hostile aliens in frequent combat. Firefights contain realistic gunfire/explosions; injured enemies scream and emit exaggerated splashes of blood. Various weapons result in dismembered limbs or bloody gibs. Some missions depict intense acts of violence: viewing characters getting electrocuted; shooting a man in the face; killing players' incinerating a cult member as part of a ritual sacrifice. The dialogue contains jokes/one-liners that reference sexual material (e.g., “I will hang myself from my own tombstone if in you I can't put my bone,” “If there's anything they love more than getting to second base with their sisters, it's cars,” “Bacon is for sycophants and products of incest.”); during some sequences, players can find and collect adult-themed magazines—though no actual nudity is depicted. One mission requires players to consume three alcoholic beverages from a bar before they can progress. The words “sh*t,” “p*ssies,” and “a*shole” can be heard in the dialogue, in addition to language censored by audible bleeps (e.g., “God-[bleep]-ing-dammit”).

I came for the Borderlands 2 discussion. I stayed for the wackiness.

Yeah duuuooooddeee!

It's 'wacky' to care about your fellow man, and desire an uplifting rather than degrading.

The opinion you express here is the REAL issue. Nobody cares anymore.

What your point? The human race is doomed anyway, why should we be drawn down by it? At least party till you're dead and enjoy life for what it is. A giant clusterfruck of pointless work and pointless living.

You are helping flush the toilet then.

At the very least step out of the bowl.

step out of planet earth?

Who gives a shit about ESRB, does anyone actually read that crap?

It's really not for you, or anyone else here. It's for otherwise uninformed parents to know what games are about so they can decide what should or shouldn't be played by their kids. Though if anyone actually bothers to pay attention and be involved in the raising of their children at all, they probably just look at the overall rating (E, T, M, etc.), rather than read these descriptions.

You should be happy we have the ESRB, though, because they are the ONLY thing that kept the government from stepping in and regulating the content of video games. Same thing with the MPAA for movies.

It's called realism Sure you can believe you can transform humanity to give a shit about what happens around them that is not lust, religion and greed (which you will not, ever unless you make us immortal somehow and make all radical religious nutjobs disappear) and waste your life trying to achieve this. Or you could enjoy life and simply not care. Because sometimes, not caring is better than running against a brick-wall called human stupidity, greed, religion or politics. Or all 4 combined.

Because on things for sure, even if you managed to somehow have a way to change humanity. You'd still face the Nr 1 enemy of all. Ignorance.

I pre-ordered the digital download on Amazon, which I understand gets you a Steam key anyway. Does anyone know if they send out the key before the release date so customers can pre-load through Steam?

They dont, we wont see a key until its released. will be emailed to you.

Laaaaame!

I hope there's lots of decapitations, goresplosions, and most of all, BOOBIES. 'Cause I'm down with the whole fall of society thing. If you're gonna do something, don't do it halfway - go all out on that whole end of civilization thing!

In all seriousness I find it amusing that Borderlands 2 of all things is the game that causes the psychotic morality crusaders to come out of their hidey holes.

Woot woot!

I never thought I'd enjoy Borderlands, but I did (a TON), and I can't wait for the sequel. It's probably my most anticipated game of this second half of the year.

The only reason I comment is that Randy strikes me as one of the characters in Borderlands. This paragraph oozes with Roman-style-collapse stupidity.

Ugh. I hate dumb.

After watching the hunger games last night... reading game description after game description like this one... its just depressing

People do nothing anymore but sit around and fill their heads and feed their emotions with as much pointless violence, bloodshed and mistreatment of others as they can fit into a 24 hour period. Oh lets not forget sex, sex, sex..

None of this can lead to anything good for the human race.


Are we related?

LOL

Society is fubar; the minds of men are filled with emptiness. I agree completely.
