Borderlands 2 Launch Trailer

A launch trailer for Borderlands 2 is now online, as Gearbox gears up for the release of their role-playing shooter sequel tomorrow in the U.S. and on Friday elsewhere. Word is: "The time is now to take out Handsome Jack. Gather up your friends as you run rampant through the world collecting bazillions of loot and guns in an effort to save Pandora from the evil grips of the Hyperion Corporation." Also, those in the London area on Sunday can snag a free copy of the game if they are willing to take a leap of faith with a bungee jump.

Knowing today is Borderlands 2 ship date is bittersweet for me. I pre-ordered it to get a really good deal from GMG, but I really want to stick to my plan of not ever playing a game before it has been out for a week or two. My reasoning is that the first play-through of a game is the most memorable one; if that first play-through is marred by technical troubles, bugs, and incompatibility issues, it really ruins that. It is exponentially worse when it happens with a game I've been desperately wanting and waiting impatiently for like BL2. Half Life 2 was like that for me - I had the worst case of the infamous audio stuttering bug one could imagine (and YES I KNOW NOT EVEYONE HAD IT. I DID, SO STFU. Thanks for listening ). I was bogging down to single-digit frame rates and eventually locking up every 3 to 5 minutes requiring a reboot. Wow, was I pissed off!

I eventually got to play HL2, and enjoyed it like few games before it or since, but not before I fired off a bunch of angry emails to Valve and wished severe, long-lasting bouts of debilitating diarrhea upon the devs, everyone involved with Steam, and the entire customer service deprartment. It wasn't pretty.
