Prez Pitchford & Gearbox Deny Girlfriend Mode: But Will You Still Buy?

Gearbox President Randy Pitchford tweets back against the backlash caused by Borderlands 2's supposed girlfriend mode. No formal apologies have been issued yet from designer John Hemmingway who originated the term, but will you still pick up the game this September?

Yes....yes I will still buy it. The quote was taken out of context and it doesn't change my opinion of the game.

I'm going to pick up the game too. Seems like too much ado about nothing. I almost feel bad for Gearbox, but I suppose any publicity for an upcoming game is good publicity, right?

I wonder if designer Hemmingway will get in trouble though....

why wouldnt i buy the sequel when i absolutely loved the first game?

I haven't played the original Borderlands so... maybe? Although I consider myself a feminist I think the reaction has been SLIGHTLY over the top. Sure, it's idiotic, but is it worth boycotting a game over? I don't think so, not on its own. If it is the first in a series of offenses, then yes. But it's a really little thing, in my opinion.

That title is oversimplifying, took randy's response totally out of context. Randy denied the fact that the best friend tree was actually called the girlfriend mode. Internet oversimplification is one of the main reasons internet activism doesn't work well.

Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn about what these guys say. I'll buy it whatever happens.

Don't care what the producers/designers/devs say. Loved the first game, and based on what I've seen thus far, I will love the second game.

Screw the internet's over blown reaction!
