Gearbox's Anthony Burch and Paul Hellquist on the Future and Present of Borderlands 2 - AusGamers

AusGamers caught up with Gearbox Software's Anthony Burch and Paul Hellquist at PAX Aus to chat about the success of their Borderlands franchise, and talk a little about the future of the studio's most successful original IP.

"There’s obviously more power [in next-gen machines], so some of those performance things will diminish, but... [laughs] we are always filling up all of the performance we are given by the hardware manufacturers, so I’m sure we’ll have different challenges," Hellquist said.

hell IMO all the dlc for borderlands 2 did was take away from how awesome the original product was... and i mean seriously they outsourced all the dlc except for the last piece and i didnt even think it was that great.

people bitched about how short and bad the dlc's were, and not to mention they say they love to do side stuff but yet drop a 10 dollar character with no in game story or achievements to speak of to add any value to him being in the game in the first place... dunno gearbox craps on everything they make except borderlands but even with the dlc of borderlands 2 they made it worse and less enjoyable IMO
