87 Bazillion New Clips Of Borderlands 2

Borderlands 2 will have guns. Of all the things in the entire universe I'd be absolutely, un-hesitantly comfortable staking my life on, that'd rank only behind "Texas is warm" and "Borderlands 2 will have lands." Gearbox, though, wants to set its more-than-87-bazillion guns apart from the rest of the industry's comparatively tasteful collection of 63 trillion, so it's attempting to infuse real personality into brands this…

You Don’t Know (Handsome) Jack: Borderlands 2’s Biggie

There's been some recent awkwardness out of the Borderlands 2 camp, but the game proper is still looking quite handsome. You will not, however, see it getting all high and mighty about its rugged Wild Wild Space West charms - largely because it is an inanimate object only capable of communicating through Wimowehs and dubstep. Its main villain, on the other hand, puts the word…

Borderlands 2’s Best Friends Forever Furore

Here's today's scandal, then. The Mechromancer, a post-release DLC character for Borderlands 2 has been revealed, and one of her skill trees is aimed at making the game more accessible to people who don't play shooters. Officially, this set of abilities is called 'Best Friends Forever', and includes skills such as missed shots having a chance to auto-ricochet into their intended targets - i.e. allowing…

Interviews About Borders: Pitchford Talks Borderlands 2

Randy Pitchford is but one of many developers behind upcoming frenzied shoot'n'loot odyssey Borderlands 2, but as the garrulous bossman of Gearbox he's the natural guy to talk to about the game, its manic mood, its team, its sub-quests and, of course, the physics of the moon. No, I didn't ask about DNF, every other site in the known universe did that.

Pandoraing To The Crowd: Hands-On With Borderlands 2

‘Manic’ is the word that lurked spider-like atop my forebrain after an hour or so with Borderlands 2. It had been a sustained torrent of colour and noise, the slaying of small armies of bandits, insectoid aliens and flying buggies interspersed with frenzied, light-speed jabbering from a psychotic teenage girl. Borderlands 2 is attention deficit disorder incarnate, a whirling, gnashing Tasmanian devil of hypercaffeinated gags,…

Borderlands 2 Trailer Employs “Wimoweh” Effect

The latest Borderlands 2 trailer is very silly. It features "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" as it shows off wildlife and ultraviolence, together as intended on the surface of an alien planet. And is that an observatory the size of the moon/in the moon?We're pretty excited about this, frankly. I had an excellent time when I played it a couple of months back, and it was…

Have A Randy Old Time At Rezzed

Excellent news, troops. Reinforcing the ranks of impending PC games show Rezzed - orchestrated of course by Eurogamer and this here website - is lord of the Borders Randy Pitchford. The Gearbox head and former magician whose surname isn't but should be Pitchfork, veteran of Borderlands, Brothers in Arms, Half-Life: Opposing Force and Ukeday Ukemnay Oreverfay, will take to the stage in Brighton on Friday…

Play Borderlands 2, See XCOM: Rezzed Revs Up

Perhaps you would be mildly interested in seeing the handsome men of Rock, Paper, Shotgun strolling by the sea in Brighton, or perhaps you are more interested in being among the first in the UK to play Borderlands 2? You could also see XCOM: Enemy Unknown in action, with a 15-minute demo being presented by one of the brains behind the game. But where and…

Mechin’ Magic: Borderlands 2’s Fifth Class to be DLC

Borderlands 2 is going to have all the guns. Hundreds of thousands of the things. 87 bazillion! Probably. Gearbox's unabashed ode to all things projectile will - as it turns out - also have five character classes to wield them. There is, however, something of a catch: the Mechromancer (which I was crushed to discover in no way involves candle-lit dinners) won't be working its…

Hands On: Borderlands 2

And now for the sequel. That's the trick, isn't it? If a game is successful then the studio end up being required to do it again, and it must be the same, but more so and different. Getting that right can be a peculiar challenge. There's a stack of shortcuts available, of course, because you're building on existing technology, fiction, and art, but there's also…

Start getting excited, because Rock, Paper, Shotgun will soon be releasing its trailer to celebrate the announcement of a release date for the reveal date for its next trailer! But in the meantime, why not enjoy the trailer released to announce the launch date for Borderlands 2? Which is the 18th September in the US, then after a long swim the 21st Sept in the…

Borderlands 2 Has Better Guns, Apparently

That sounds flippant, but for a loot-driven game like the Borderlands sequel it's actually pretty important. It is, as concept designer Scott Kester explains in the first episode of a new video series about the forthcoming game (below), about making a loot-chomping shooter less repetitive by making the content more interesting, and more distinct. No new game footage in this video, sadly, so you'll just…

Borderlands 2 Hearts The PC

Ah, here's a spot of good mini-news for platform mini-zealots such as you and I. We've become all-too accustomed to PC versions of games being cursorily ported cast-offs of the console editions, riddled with references to X buttons and triggers, but Gearbox aren't thinking that way for Borderlands 2. While the game's still, at best guess, around a year from release, already they're plotting on…

After Forever: Borderlands 2 Preview

Gearbox have got some explaining to do. No, nothing to do with Duke Nukem Forever – but because, back when they were first promoting Borderlands, they emphasised what a risk it was, how unusual to have something new rather than a sequel, and why the media and gamers should thus give their RPG-shooter their full attention even though it wasn't a known quantity.Now, of course,…

First Fragments Of Borderlands 2 Revealed

Game Informer are doing one of their big, slow reveals for Borderlands 2, and some details have already begun to trickle out. The characters from the first game are apparently now NPCs in this game, and robo-host Claptrap will also be making an appearance. The new game will have a currency and resource system, based on an element called "Eridium", and there will apparently be…

Borderlands 2 Is Really Real, Due 2012

Eurogamer had already called it, now 2K and Gearbox have officially announced it: Borderlands 2 will be revealed at Gamescom later this month (I'm just about to pester them for an appointment) and released at some point beetween April 2012 and April 2013. Almost no details whatsover - this is how the games industry rolls - but there will be a"ll-new characters, skills, environments, enemies,…
