Ross Lincoln: "Everybody has that one friend who has ‘potential’. Sure, you can tell they could totally write the great American novel if they’d just buckle down, but all they do is lay around eating horribly, read Stephanie Myers and Charlene Harris, and smoke too much pot when they should be studying. Eventually, you have to ditch them, if only to make sure you don’t get sucked down the drain along with them. So how awesome is it when you go a year or so without seeing them, only to discover that they’ve spent the intervening time eating right, working out, reading – oh, I don’t know, Gore Vidal – and taking regular showers? Extremely f*cking cool. And that’s precisely the experience of playing Borderlands 2."
