Borderlands 2: The Opening Introduction
A couple of us GamerVets just picked up Borderlands 2 this week so expect some videos, tips, reviews, and impressions soon. That’s right folks, we’re just regular dudes who like to play video games so we don’t get the advantage of freebie games or new releases sent to us weeks in advance to try out. In fact, to save on some money, I ended up trading in 2 games that I finished, Transformers Fall of Cybertron and Ghost Recon: Future Soldier to get Borderlands 2 with a Steelbook for free at Future Shop. Ghost Recon was tough to give up because I really enjoy the multiplayer but hey it’s time to move on to new things!
I have to admit though, I never finished the first Borderlands game. I enjoyed what I played of it but the grind started getting to me. It’s actually more about the enemy respawn times. I hated the fact that I’d spend all this time clearing an area to get to a certain objective and/or Boss. Once I beat that, I would have to go back the same way and all the enemies that I killed have already respawned back and I’d once again clear the exact same enemies to leave. We’ll see what happens when I get through Borderlands 2. Stay tuned!
To wet your appetite, check out this cool intro to start the game. One of the better opening scenes I’ve seen in a while as I normally skip these cut scenes ASAP.
