New Borderlands Trailer

September cannot come soon enough.

Points of discussion

  • What other whimsical/classical music would you have used for this trailer
  • What music do you think is on Claptrap's iPod? Does he use an Android device instead?
  • Does Gearbox even need to make any more trailers to sell you on the game?

No; honestly, it's starting to get to the point of hype fatigue for me - 2K are very good with doing that =/ I already feel like there's too much info available for both Bioshock and X-COM...

That was awesome! Aaahhh! She had wings! Did I miss something in the first game?! haha.

I can't think of any music I'd also put with the trailer after seeing that, it was just spot on. Claptrap totally listens to Devo! And no, no more trailers needed. 100% SOLD.

@BeachThunder: What they need to do is invent a time machine so they can bring the game back from the future. I would pay $200 to play Borderlands 2 in however long it takes to download the game.

They definitely don't need to release any more trailers to sell me the game. I was sold before I even finished the first one.

That trailer is brilliant. It wasn't pushing the game very hard either. It felt like it was made purely for the fans.

Borderlands is a pretty special title. I know a few people (not saying myself here) who have downloaded the game illegally, and then gone out and purchased it purely to support the Gearbox.

Looks so good. I cannot wait for this game.

The sidestep/ headshot had me in stitches.

So far sold, but they have some damn good trailers, if they put out another id watch it based purely on entertainment value.

Can't believe they used that song. Still gonna be an awesome game though.

@TheDudeOfGaming: An awesome song for an awesome game, that's what you meant right?

Playing a bit of the first one again, and this trailer just makes it feel like they are just giving more of what we want, with some nice tweaks where it's needed.

The thing I'm mostly hoping for is more generalized skill sets, or at least not so specialized in regards to gun types. I really wanted to play Brick, but Brawler got stale fairly quick, and I'm not a fan of launchers, or strictly using explosive weapons.

If it does happen that way, I have a feeling the Siren will seem nerfed, at least indirectly, if everyone is good with pretty much all guns like Lilith was. Any class youse guys is leaning towards?
