Two Awesome Video Game Releases
Borderlands 2 has just released and the buzz I've been seeing has all been very positive. Brand new players and returning Borderlands fans have both been raving about how great the Borderlands 2 sequel turned out. Borderlands 2 is a hybrid 1st person shooter / RPG that offers new characters, new classes, and online play which allows you to play with your friends. The new Badass Gun System allows millions of weapon combinations and the new Gunzerker class can dual wield any 2 weapons in the game!
My good buddy Wes, from Capped By Cata and the Auction House Junkies Podcast, had this to say about his recent Borderlands 2 purchase.
If there was ever a game that could drag you out of your MMO Prison, or well, for us your palace lined in gold, it’s Borderlands 2. For the first time in years Borderlands 2 literally stole time from me like so many games use to do. Mixing First Person Shooter glory with loot and level goodness, it has something no matter what your taste is. With 4 different classes and skill trees for each, the game offers plenty of customization and replay ability. The best part for me though is really the story. Hilarious dialog and plenty of nerd memes hidden throughout. It truly is Epic. So grab your copy and get going. But be warned, you’ll need plenty of Mountain Dew and you better set your Auctions to 48 hours. It might be awhile before you get back to them.Check Out Borderlands 2 At Amazon Now
