Today’s Big Friday post features something I haven’t done in long time – a commentary on a game I’ve been playing.
My PS3 doesn’t get much usage these days, but a bit over two weeks ago I turned it back on to try out a game that I had gotten as a free download last year but never bothered playing. That game was Borderlands 2. It was highly recommended to me by a friend and from a quick perusal of major gaming websites I saw that it had reviewed very well with the gaming media. I wasn’t working on any other games at that moment, so it seemed like a good time to finally get around to playing it. One night I commenced the download and the next day I got started on Borderlands 2. I haven’t finished the game yet, but I feel I’ve played enough to give some impressions on it.
This post made me think of a couple of posts by Steve Yegge a few years back. He was a blogger I really liked, followed really closely. Unfortunately he stopped writing. But he wrote a couple of pieces about Borderlands and Borderlands 2 that I thought you might like.
Test reply. Just seeing how this looks. I checked out the links you listed and Steve Yegge is clearly much more passionate about this game than I am, and in a good way. His writing voice and my writing voice make for an interesting contrast.
