Is this meant to be a spoof of a dumb character in borderlands? Because it failed hard.

It really does seem like a review by Scooter at first glance.

Even that dude in the comments who edited it, it still goes all over the place

He starts talking about the game, starts bitching he's under-leveled, and is dying due to him zerging. also not being tactical or finding a way

Then complains he co-ops with his friend, but the boss is named Midge, and he hates that name/reference and makes him sad

He wants to play with this girl, but her PC is broken so she is playing on the 360, so is another dude, due to his PC under-performing is also on the 360, playing with the girl, when he should be playing with the girl, but whatever

Borderlands 2 tries to be the new hotness, but it all the saminess like but butter
I don't like it, keeps pissing me off for it's different factors... yet I can put down this but butter

MNARKETY... Whatever!


Holy Fuck!

To be fair, "MidgeMong" is a pretty offensive boss name, but I have to admit I laughed. Mostly in a "holy shit wow they went there" way.

Borderlands 2 strikes me as such an odd game to get up on the "games should be more sophisticated" soap box for.

Like, they're not even trying to claim it's an artistic masterpiece filled with deep meaning. They've been pretty blunt the entire time that it's a co-op loot game to laugh and have fun with your friends in.

Wouldn't it make a lot more sense to deconstruct a game where they actually market it as that and it falls notably short?

Like EA has been marketing Medal of Honor: Warfighter as a sophisticated look on the lives of special ops troops and their issues with social and familial life. If, by some chance, it doesn't actually do that and is actually a shooting gallery with big explosions, that would make a lot more sense to me to start banging on for this.

Yeah. If anything, Borderlands is in the same category of Saints Row the Third, where it's more about actively not being sophisticated. It revels in its self-aware dumbness, that's half the fun.

Completely agreed. I don't mind the absurdity of Borderlands 2 because, like you said, that's exactly what they're going for.

And there's not a chance that Medal of Honor will be more than a shooting gallery with big explosions.
