Borderlands 2 was one of the most anticipated video games of 2012. But as of an hour ago, it’s Gearbox’s newest (for those of us in the United States, anyway; the UK has three more days of waiting time) AAA title. From all accounts, the sequel is like Borderlands but only more so. That means more guns, more enemies, and if you can believe it, more attitude.
Time to start playing. And while we’re warming up our keyboard/gamepad fingers, we have a few minutes to delve into this:
