No one seemed to care when I posted this. :(

Also, if these comments are anything to go on I was right about GB not being a Borderlands friendly community.

Let me get this straight. It took Dan until he was 25 to try Ketchup, but he jumps out of a plane on a yearly basis. WHAT ARE YOU DAN RYCKERT!!!!

I haven't watched The Mist, but hearing that it's based on a Stephen King book I'm not surprised that the ending is hated by many. That man can't write endings for shit, he's never been able to and the few times he's written a good ending to any of his books it seems to be more of an accident than anything else.

The ending of the film is not the same, and is far more depressing. He shoots his son to prevent him from dying at the hands of the monsters only for the military to show up moments later.

This is fucking gold.

I would've known this was posted by Alex just by the description.

Space RTS games, hell, space combat in general, just makes me want a sequel to Nexus: The Jupiter Incident even more. Somehow I doubt it's coming.

Glad to see some stuff about Circuits, it looks cool, especially for the price. Also, while I like Blendo's spy stuff, I love his zombie RTS "Atom Zombie Smasher", and I'm especially looking forward to quadrilateral cowboy.

If you like Blendo's games and haven't played Flotilla, you owe it to yourself to correct that mistake.

"Well I'm happy to move on."

Love that caddy.

InstaGib+Bombing Run+BR_Skyline is probably all I need.

Loved shooting the ball at an opponent, wasting him and then picking the ball back up. Almost as much fun as impact hammer kills.

Wow, so much hate for Borderlands in here. Yeesh!

I enjoyed both games and can't wait for new classes, new mechanics and a new story. Not getting the Handsome Jack hate either. Is it just because the Giantbomb crew wasn't big on BL2? Jack was a fine villain with some great lines, so I have no issue with seeing more of him.

Speaking for myself I gave the game an honest shot and I found I really liked the gameplay and the banter between the BL1 cast but Handsome Jack was the most aggressively frustrating and annoying character to deal with say nothing of the plot they wrote around him. I went back to the quick look and they're slightly negative on Handsome Jack but don't spend much time on him. So for me, my hatred of Handsome Jack comes largely from my own heart.

I've had discussions with friends and it's kinda all over the place with that character, some didn't care, others liked him, I thought he was outright terrible and brought down the game for me. Still though I held out Borderlands as an open question but so far there's no indication they'll be abandoning the character that represents everything I didn't like about Borderlands 2.

Fair enough; people can have differing opinions. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying Jack is the best character, but I felt he had his moments. For what it's worth, my favourite new character was either Slade or Ellie. The only character I really had an issue with was Tiny Tina. Sometimes I get the impression that for some people Tina is all they think of when remembering the tone/humor of BL2, when she isn't really an accurate example of the overall tone. What about Scooter's fantastic dialogue? Or Claptrap's birthday party? There's so much more than Tiny Tina.
