The lights are on
For some reason, there is a lot of butt talk in today’s news. This time, it’s Handsome Jack and a list of tips for surviving on Pandora’s moon in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.
“But what does this have to do with butts?” I hear you asking. Well, as you might recall from our previews, when you are outside on Elpis, you’ll be able to rapidly decide onto your posterior by crouching while jumping. Even better, if you have an elemental Oz kit, you can cause all sorts of damage to your foes.
You’ll also get a look at the laser and cryo weapons, along with Wilhelm’s active ability. And, if you want to hear Handsome Jack say what we’ve all been thinking about Athena’s active ability, you’re in luck.
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel will be out on October 14 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. For more, check out our E3 preview.

okay im starting to feel better about this. i'll be using Athena for sure.
i think you have a typo, where you say "you’ll be able to rapidly decide onto your posterior " i believe you meant decline not decide.
Man this looks great. Handsome Jack is really awesome. I'm excited about this game. Hope it's good.
Lasers! Elemental butt stomps! My character now mustl be a flamming Mario.
My most anticipated game this year. I'm super excited for this, sorry Destiny. Looking forward to spending hours farming for new legendaries.
There's gotta be a joke about the Wizard in this.
stiiiill skeptical. And is it just me or is it strange that claptrap has not been shown very much. He is the reason I would get this game and I have not seen him in the gameplay.
I already know who I am playing as: Wilhelm
That is, if this game gets a halfway decent review, because I am still just a tad skeptical.
He sounds different because he's younger. It's still Dameon Clarke behind the microphone.
Meh. This feels like Gearbox (is Gearbox even making this one?!) is cashing in on the success of Borderlands 2 big time. They quite obviously are using the same game engine to make this game, with just a few tweaks. I bet this game took literally a quarter of the time it took to make Borderlands 2. That was a great game, but they milked it pretty hard already with the never-ending stream of DLC. I'm not trying to sound too negative: Borderlands 2 was great. But EVEN MORE of it?? Ugh. I guesss...
