Ha, that's awesome.
I'd like some BL2 news as well. Just finished the main story of the first one and I think a sequel could be even better yet.

 I think this is so funny and cute. Still hoping for some confirmation on Borderlands 2, i almost jumped when i saw Claptrap again^^This is why i love gearbox. Well done GB! Show's you have some time for the fans :) Ps: give us news on some BL2 soon <3 "
I don't think that's a good way to ask someone to marry you but to each their own I suppose. Also I cant look at GB and not think Giant Bomb.

Too cool.  Gearbox  proves their class and ongoing excellent sense of humor again.  Bless them. 

 

Love me sum Borderlands tc.  News on Borderlands 2 would be very welcomed indeed. :))!

"ClapTrap! Stop insulting our fans!"

That was some good stuff. Gearbox knows how to do good humor.

Yeah, Gearbox is really starting to win me over. Making consistently great games, releasing the unreleasable, and then funny/amazing stuff like this. You're not half bad, Randy Pitchford!

I agreed when I played Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway. I hope they make another BiA title, because I wasn't big on Borderlands, actually. I'm stunned at how much time Gearbox have for their fans though - that's awesome of them!

That's awesome of them to do. Hope she said yes!

That was good.

Borderworlds is right behind a new Brothers in Arms game in the list of Gearbox games i want to be made.

@xMP44x: Yeah I almost forgot about BIA it's been so long since Hell's Highway I want a conclusion to the story.Maybe they have been keeping it underwraps the whole time?

God fucking damnit, I don't think I've ever hated a character as much as I hate Claptrap.

Aw, come on. Claptrap's awesome. Have you ever looked at him? He's dancin'!

He just comes off as trying too hard. Kinda like almost every other character in that game. Kinda like Bulletstorm. Kinda like I think Duke Nukem Forever will be.
#25 Posted by natetodamax (19205 posts) -

That was fantastic. This is why Gearbox is probably my favorite developer. They just have such a great sense of humor, a passion for what they do, and an awesome dedication to the fanbase. Well done!

#26 Posted by Hailinel (24731 posts) -

That was brilliantly done, and the best laugh I've had all day.  Well done, Gearbox!

Is that Anthony Burch as the director?

I thought he was working on Grand Theft Spaceman 2.

That;s kinda funny because I get that vibe from Bulletstorm, and even a bit from DNF. Never from Borderlands though. I thought the majority of the characters were fairly clever and humorous.

(I hate it when I type a semicolon instead of an apostrophe. Makes me angry. I'm not editing that first one though. I refuse.)
#29 Posted by EuanDewar (4912 posts) -

I can't imagine how he got them to do this. Lovely stuff Gearbox!

#30 Posted by ShadowKnight508 (659 posts) -

That was some major win by the folks at Gearbox for doing this for him. Great humor from Claptrap as expected (The "2 words....Skaggy style" part made me laugh)

#31 Posted by Daveyo520 (6747 posts) -

I just read that. I wonder what she said.

#32 Posted by Scarlet_Rogue (500 posts) -
@BjornTheUnicorn: yeah he talks about it on his site. He wrote it too.
#33 Posted by EpicBenjamin (625 posts) -

Wow, that's amazing!

#34 Posted by valrog (3671 posts) -

Much respect for Gearbox for doing this.

Yeah I think it is.

That's really cool of them to do, especially for a girl who likes the game so much.

It always warms my heart to see things like this, nicely done.

Yes, he works at Gearbox now.

@wasteguru: Yeah I know that. I wouldn't have been able to call out his voice just by watching the video.

I saw it on youtube, so fun and well made ^^

#46 Posted by Yummylee (21629 posts) -

It's a really thoughtful gesture, and increases my respect for Gearbox, though Claptrap was mind-plodingly annoying in that video.
