Borderlands 2 developer gives free loot to fans in the middle of the night

Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software, stayed up late this morning in order to award fans today with new codes good for "Borderlands 2" golden keys inside the popular co-op shooter. Pitchford posted the codes early this Sunday morning which are good for a single golden key in “Borderlands 2” for all platforms. The developer is known for regularly handing out the SHiFT codes good for in-game loot which helps keep his fans happy. (Borderlands 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Yeeeeah sorry Randy. It's gonna take a lot more then that to redeem yourself.

You obviously expected to much from a game based on a movie... never do that unless you WANT to disappoint yourself.

It was destined to suck from the beginning.

That is unless your talking about his nonchalant attitude towards glitches and whatnot... then yeah I guess your right.

I am. I never bought the game in the first place and I just had a feeling he'd screw people over. I haven't even played BL2 yet because I'd rather save 30 bucks then give $90 to this lying bastard.

Edit: And that's another reason. I wondered how they'd managed to make so many big DLC packs in such a short amount of time when the first Borderlands came out. Now I know and I won't be buying any of their games brand new again.

Yeah they have to be going into damage control after the Aliens CM fiasco. This is like the Lance Armstrong thingy all over again.

Gearbox have damaged their reputation so much. Out-sourcing DLC, and a WHOLE FREAKING game. Plus, although they didn't make DNF, their name is on it. So they have only Borderlands to their credit really. I thought the BIA released this gen was horrible tbh.

Agreed. Personally I'll let DNF slide since I think they just wanted to see it come out. No one really wanted to work on it and at that point most people just kinda stopped caring when it came out except for diehards.

But there isn't any excuse for what they've done so far. I mean damn, Aliens Colonial Marines put Gearbox in a whole different light. I wanna say they're almost as bad as Capcom nowadays.

These are given out pretty much every other day from Randy/Gearbox. Not really news..

Exactly, I don't understand way some folks are still freaking out over getting these "great keys", they give crap loot.
