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.

RPS Interrogation: Randy Pitchford Vs The Fans

Pitchford Talks Borderlands

Gearbox big chief Randy Pitchford was grabbed by GameTrailers and he unloaded his explanation of Borderlands, which you can see below. What's interesting about this is how the pitch for the game has subtly changed. Originally it was much more "co-op shooter with loads of guns", and now it's "concept art shooter with RPG elements". Pitchford flags up Fallout 3 and Bioshock, but the game…

Brothers In Arms: HH, Character Trailer

Gearbox bossman Randy Pitchford says: "One of the things about videogames and story-telling is, well frankly I think the entire industry in the Stone Age." The evidence from this trailer suggests that Gearbox are pushing for more of a Bronze Age with their new game, Brothers In Arms: Hell's Highway, which is yet another game this year that I'm actually really keen on playing.
