Borderlands 2! Buy Borderlands 2! All the Time! Buy It!

Hey guys, another game trailer based minipost here (I don’t know about you, but I reckon the gaming industry has really stepped up their output on great trailers recently…)!  This time, it’s Borderlands 2, which absolutely has to be one of my most anticipated games of 2012; I absolutely LOVED the first game, and this one’s shaping up to be just as great :D

So, two trailers for ya; first of all the beast that is the new ‘Doomsday’ trailer – dubstep soundtrack, hilarious captioning and good old Borderlands style – enjoy!

I mean, come on! That’s an insane trailer! Love it, and especially the new characters – they all look great. 2:23 to see Claptrap absolutely tearing it UP.

Second up is a serious (read: not) documentary looking at the making-of process for the game.  Just to keep it down to Earth, CL4P-TP’s back again in presenter mode.

HAIOOH!  Two great trailers, and a testament to what a modern media-savvy games company can accomplish.  It’s imaginative and entertaining stuff, and that bodes well for their products ^^.

  1. haha ok you have to read this post over at beyondmarathons blog.

    I think the two of you will have a lot to converse about ;)

    Your welcome for the intro

  2. I was almost tempted to post an update over there when I saw the Borderlands 2 trailer this evening – now there’s a trailer with absolutely no possibility of a mismatch between marketing material and gameplay expectations. If I’m brutally honest, I’m not as intrigued by what I’ve seen of the classes in 2 as I was in 1, but if nothing else, I’ll buy this game because they were bold enough to pioneer the phrase ‘get ready to joy puke your face off’. My mission has now become to find a suitable context to use this phrase myself, in casual conversation.

    Loved the behind the scenes trailer – claptrap looks set to steal the show (again).

      Haha, see my reply to your post (copied below);

      Ta for introduction, pantshater
      I’m very much in favour of well-made, exciting trailers. They do exactly what you say; give me “a few minutes of excitement, [and] some inflated expectations”. These are inflated expectations I carry with me well up to release, and which give a big positive bias to my experience of the game itself. Call me easy manipulated, but massive hype leading up to a release is more than capable of enhancing my enjoyment of the game It’s almost deliberate; “I’ve been looking forward to this game for so long, making it into something in my head, that it’s damn well going to be that thing!”
      Even though I know it’s the case, as it turns out…

      Funny you should say that, I pretty much explicitly announced the same mission myself; I absolutely loved that phrase. Set me right up for the rest of the trailer :D Also much love for the word BAZILLIONDER
