As you may have guessed, some of us here are seriously digging Borderlands 2. I’m enjoying it and am currently on the first DLC campaign AND running a second game with a DLC character. Jose penned his own love letter to it when it first came out (where did he get the time?). All things aside, it’s a great game, filled with references, and has a crazy cute robot named Claptrap who at one point threatens to violate a villain’s corpse.
Really, it’s great. Also, the Commando class rules and you can’t prove me wrong.
But what’s interesting on a pro geek level, is that the game has several great lessons for those of us working in gaming and content. Beyond the whole angry-cute-robot angle.
One of the great lessons? Mindshare. A lesson that shows how we need to rethink content.
