Hands-on: Borderlands 2 | VGTODAY

Andreas Varotsis, VGTODAY writes: "Sitting down at the Borderlands 2 machine at Rezzed, I felt instantly at home. Borderlands was a winning formula, the satisfying cooperative gunplay and the Diablo-like loot collection getting along like a house on fire – a house made of TNT, big guns, and insane psycho gnomes – and Gearbox have made sure not to stray too far. Even on a controller, the weighty weaponry, colourful aesthetic and general mayhem make the sequel instantly recognisable.

For those worrying, don’t – keyboard and mouse apparently works just fine, as I was assured by an apologetic attendant, it’s just that reloading makes the game explode. Let’s hope that one is fixed before launch. PC gaming, ey?"

The story is too old to be commented.

Borderlands was fantastic! A likely day one purchase for me.

Aye, looking forward to it myself.

Hopefully Borderlands 2 gets the mass market success it looks like it's going to deserve.

Wish they could find a way to bring Knoxx back:

"Well, its been fun chatting but now I have to send a hit squad to take you out. Much love!"

<3 that guy:(

Can't wait! Already have mine pre-ordered.

And in the Knoxx vein...

*Yawn* "This is General Knoxx. I really don't wanna be here. This planet smells like hemorrhoids wrapped in bacon!"

Whats with our disagrees? Did someone seriously not like Knoxx? Bet they're a Nazi......only viable explanation.

Phantom disagree trolls. They infest this place.
