Borderlands 2

I recently had a chance to sit down with Anthony Burch, writer of Borderlands 2 and the less manic half of brilliant web series, Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin’? and chat about what it takes to write comedy in games. Whilst my interview was by no means as entertaining as Tim’s impromptu D&D game, it did bring to light some of the problems with writing comedy for games in general and RPGs in particular.

Anthony Burch and Paul Hellquist play D&D

At this year’s PAX Australia, I had the chance to sit down with Borderlands 2′s Anthony Burch and Paul Hellquist. They were expecting an interview, but instead I pulled out two character sheets and a bunch of dice and told them to start rolling. Here’s what happened.

Warning: the following interview is very long and contains strong language (mostly from Anthony).

Borderlands 2 Competition

By on July 3, 2013 at 5:46 pm

Gather round, gather round — we’ve been going through all the entries to our Borderlands 2 Ultimate Loot Chest competition.

Remember, these editions are completely sold out in stores — so you can’t get them anywhere else! And with Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep wrapping up the festivities (read our review here) now is a perfect time to experience it all.

And now — the winners.

Once upon a time, the Vault Hunters played a game.

And so Marcus kicks off Borderlands 2’s closing act with more than a lingering sense of deja vu, in the same way he opened the first some four years earlier: against a backdrop of ink-over-parchment that would become Pandora’s defining style. In truth, deja vu may well have been Borderland’s greatest enemy. How many hours could a Vault Hunter last on loot and loot alone? But with its chameleon-like ability to re-shape, re-skin and re-write, Pandora has become a world of characters and tilesets rich enough for any Dungeons & Dragons DM.

Borderlands 2

When we learned that the final piece of Borderlands 2 DLC saw players jumping into a D&D game narrated by Tiny Tina, we knew that we had to sit down and speak to the man behind it all — Anthony Burch. Inside you’ll find Anthony’s thoughts on running a game inside a game, how Tiny Tina was inspired, and why it could have been so easy to write a terrible D&D parody.

When we learned that the final piece of Borderlands 2 DLC saw players jumping into a D&D game narrated by Tiny Tina, we knew that we had to sit down and speak to the man behind it all — Anthony Burch. Inside, you’ll find part one of our conversation where we discuss all things roleplaying, why Anthony thinks The Big Bang Theory is harmful to nerds, and using nerd sterotypes to cut through poor storytelling.
