Wow, today I just received the august cover. It's gonna be a late wait for this one.
just joined ;D....anyway if you look on the hub, one of the upcoming selections says "meet the gunserker" which is probably the guy on thecover, just letting all of you know.
Loved The First Borderlands. Cant Wait For This One.
ahhhh! finally! I really hope they improve the RPG elements of the game and offer a little more differentiation between the players. But I LOVED the core formula at the heart of the game and can't wait
Granted, you don't play Borderland for the story, but I hope they tighten up the story. It has some potential.
I was let down with the end of the first one. Not a game breaker, but an interesting story is always nice.
cant wait the first one was awesome
First one was great, loved the cell-shaded style, it was a little bland story and diversity wise, but I have a good feeling about this one.
i just crapped myself.
that guy is the "gunserker", what im saying is true
