I am so fucking ready

That's a lot of WUB WUB in there.

Looks good though not too thrilled with the first or last choices on the characters presented. Might play better but after playing tons of one with the siren & soldier I might be too attached to those character types (or closest to them) for this sequel.

I hope they can iron out the framrerate issues, looks like even more crazy shit popping off on this one.

I will play as Zero because he looks cool

Dubstep drops are the new metalcore breakdowns

Posted by outerabiz

Great i love how all the "dub-step experts" on this site, claim that Nero one of the most famous british drum n bass and dubstep bands is not making REAL dubstep, or that it is american noobstep or whatever you're calling it.

Pretty funny... and sad.

Dope. As. Shit.

"Epic campaign" is what I like to hear. Borderlands failed for me a bit as a solo player, just b/c the loot drops sucked at higher levels, to the point where I was literally throwing 99 out of 100 guns. Keep up that loot drip freed and offer a more lively overworld, and i'm all over this.

This franchise has a ridiculously consistent track record for kickass trailers. I still rewatch that original Borderlands trailer from time to time.

I promised myself I wouldn't get psyched for this game. Damn you, Gearbox!

I love that album ( Welcome Reality). Glad to see the makers of this video appreciate that awesome post-drop breakdown like I do.

Happy to see how great the new character designs are. Well, all of them except for Salvador.

It's a shame to see the Brick-equivalent in this game downgraded into a fat guy who's a bit too old to be working at Hot Topic.

YEAH. THIS IS SOME BOMB ASS SHIT!

No one with better things to do really cares what your pretentious subclassifications are of "that wubby music". That said, this is probably the best implementation of it I've seen. That AC:Revelations trailer with that wubby dubstep 'whatever-you-fucking-call-it' was so damn out of place.

i don't know if i can handle having a primary antagonist in a Borderlands game... unless Handsome Jack is code for Tentacle Beast

Yeah that is pretty sad. A lot of awesome drum n' bass has for the last year been confused for dubstep.

Either way, I like both genres, but the misinformation is a bummer!

It seems like I'm the only person that didn't like Borderlands at all. Didn't really get addicted to the RPG elements and the guns stuff, because the story and missions were so boring. I guess it's because I hate most games that rely on MMO mission structures instead of actually trying to convey a mission without a character standing there while you press okay on a screen with a bunch of text. I hope Borderlands 2 is better, but I don't see any big changes except different environments. Still not sold on this game, when I think I should. Everyone else likes it or at least from what I've seen from different comments sections. Hope someone else can relate to me with this.

People need to realize that everything that goes "wub wub" is dubstep now. It doesn't get "mistaken" for dubstep; usage creates meaning in language, and that's what that word means for 90% of people now.

It means "wub wub."

But, uhh, aside from that, I am excited for Borderlands 2 and its endearingly goofy, kitchen-sink approach to both trailer and game design. Billionty.

I stopped when I heard dubstep music,disgusting.

Anyone else get a rush from the sound of the crate opening towards the end?

Posted by Sunjammer

I like how the vast majority of dubstep is piss poor garbage music made by potheads and idiots that sample eachothers farts, and everybody has an "educated" opinion on it. I dunno what the hell happened to make this such a global god damn phenomenon but it's freaking retarded. If half as many people actually gave a shit about music as the people talking about dubstep, there would be no dubstep. PARADOXxxxxxx.

When claptrap goes utz utz utz to some hot dubstep you know you have achieved all you can in life. Shit blew me mind.

I like the mess of buzzwords and other basically meaningless shit in the trailer. They really got Borderlands sense of humor right.

This looks horrible just like the first game...

Don't play game. Give opinion.


The game hasn't been released yet. No one has played it. Exactly how is one meant to obtain a more accurate opinion than by watching the trailer and drawing upon their experience with the first game?

@BionicMonster: Crap attempt. If you were trying to insult me you made me giggle instead.

There's legitimately great music out there and people don't give a fuck. There's no rationale for digging this stuff. It's mindless grind. So I guess if you're an idiot who doesn't give a shit, it's right up your alley. Enjoy your parasitic, soulless, endlessly self-referential pointlessness of a genre. And before you call me "elitist" here, that'd be like calling someone who prefers eating actual food to eating waste matter an elitist.

I read a youtube comment the other night where some asshole was calling the Stones' Paint it Black "the original dubstep". This is how far this trainwreck has been allowed to go on, and I know it's cool to watch wrecks in slow motion, but at some point you're going to have to start considering the injured.

@warpbackspin: Oh that's right, the accepted way to go about business you disagree with is to not say anything, and to not care. Because this is how the world turns. Motherfuckers not giving a shit.

loved the first borderlands, I hope they don't fuck up the simple story and action of the original by trying to add to much. If you add a bizallion more guns more enemy types and more areas I'm happy to leave the rest alone.

Posted by LoktarOgar

No one trailer should have all that wub wub?

Am I the only one disappointed that the big, fat lady is not a playable character?

I needed more Wub wub in my borderlands.

This right here is a a prime example of a man who really desperately wants you think he knows a thing about music.

They've been pretty clear that they aren't going to muck up what they had going. There will be more story and it'll be more involved, but it'll be as optional as it was in the original. If you want I'm sure you'll be able to hammer the "take quests" button and then book it to shoot shit.

I won't mind a bit more story and personality though, all of the dialogue and story bits in Borderlands were generally really excellently executed, despite having a pretty all over the place plot and a shit ending.

I always loved how ballsily self aware the Borderlands marketing has been. I love the personality of Borderlands, it's amazing. I giggle every damn time.

Dubstep isn't supposed to be music to the trained ear, it's to move and groove to, nothing more. Anything you're supposed to dance in a club to is going to be pretty shitty musically speaking, but that doesn't mean it has no value.

It's being overused by the industry of late (Far Cry 3 is actually going to have dubstep (and really shitty lazy dubstep) in the game itself, if things don't change) but Borderlands fits it, and half of Borderlands marketing is laughing at the stupid shit the industry does to get people to pay attention. Including wub wub wub.

Also, who gives a flying fuck, it fits the trailer and the game, both of which are dumb and genius and just about fuckin fun. It's not art, it's a fun ass video game with a fun ass sense of humor. And that means dumb silly music.

This whole dubstep thing in trailers is just a joke right? .... right?

Is everyone over their hatred of dubstep? (giantbomb not included)

The only "dubstep" part in this trailer was the last 30 seconds... and that wasn't even dubstep, it was brostep... aka "Skrillstep" as most American noobs know it.

Wow, dude. Really?

Nero is a world-renowned British dubstep group with roots in everything electronic from house to DnB. They are considered by many in the industry to be among the pioneers of dubstep.

Yes - much to the apparent chagrin of annoying dubstep purists - Doomsday is a dubstep track of theirs that just happens to feature an almost house-style 4-step beat and tempo for about the first half of the song.

However, it is far from anything you could consider "brostep."

It is fairly simple and clean (for an original dubstep track these days). Brostep is generally what annoying dubstep purists call vastly overdone, effect and sample-heavy, and sort of spastic-sounding dubstep. Indeed, like much of Skrillex's music.

Not just everything "mainstream." Not just everything with guitar samples or synth guitar hits. Not just everything that deviates from a standard dubstep beat/tempo for a portion of the song.

It'd be less annoying if all those purists throwing the term brostep around actually knew what it meant/where it came from. Unfortunately it seems most don't. Sort of like people that constantly refer to "trolling." Which you must be doing with such a ridiculous comment.
