We’re all friends here, so let me be honest: I felt cheated by Borderlands (the first one). It was all very pretty and I loved the environments and atmosphere… but to claim that it had billions of weapons is a bit like saying chips with vinegar is a completely different meal to chips with a bit more vinegar. That and the ending was such an anti-climax it made me wish I’d done something useful with my life like maybe writing a play, learning crochet, or being in a coma.
It’s alright though, Borderlands 2 is coming with enhanced prettiness and even more hyperbole about its gun-count, hurrah!
Hey, Gearbox: would a half-decent ending be too much to ask for second time round?
