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.

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?
