Borderlands 2 was, and still is, an amazing game. The sequel to the surprise hit from Gearbox brought a lot of new players to the world of Pandora, and it’s a world that is filled with life, action, and Easter Eggs. But, one of the most interesting Easter Eggs in the game is an NPC called Michael Mamaril. You likely won’t know his name (barring you hearing it from other Borderlands 2 players), but his story is touching.
While day one patches have been around this the launch of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, the current generation of consoles seems to have taken the practice to the extreme. Almost every game that is released now sees a patch made available to download and Gearbox’s latest title, Borderlands: The Handsome Jack Collection, is not different. The remastering of Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel will require users to download a day one update if they want to remain online while playing the game.

Two weeks ago, the gang at Gearbox software outed Krieg, a melee-oriented Psycho character class for their popular FPS RPG Borderlands 2. Since then, Pandoran explorers have been monitoring the ECHOcasts Twitter feed for news of his arrival, and yesterday the transmission they’d been anxiously awaiting arrived.(more…)
In case you missed it, Gearbox Software has announced that the fourth and final narrative-driven DLC for its bandit-ridden FPS RPG Borderlands 2 will be Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep.(more…)
The talented folk at Gearbox Software were busy bees yesterday. Not only did they release Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s Booty, a sizeable pirate-themed add-on for Borderlands 2, but they pushed out a title update addressing a long list of technical hiccups too.
The PC variant of yesterday’s Borderlands 2 patch, issued alongside the (early) release of downloadable character class The Mechromancer, is said to contain files that reveal a wealth of information about to the first standalone mission pack for Gearbox Software’s RPG-esque shooter.(more…)
