It's been a while since we've done one of these... because... well, it's been a while since there's been any notable releases as the stale period of summer releases was upon us. However, this is now gradually lifting and some big titles are on their way out. This week's highly anticipated release is, of course, Borderlands 2! There's also a good release for you virtual petrol heads out there - F1 2012!
This is what I will inevitably be spending all my time on this weekend! I'll probably be playing as a Siren for a dedicated co-op playthrough, and maybe the Gunzerker for a "Whenever I feel like a bash" campaign. I expect that all of you will already know what Borderlands 2 is, so I won't waste your time explaining the concept. Guns and Loot, that's all you need to know. Lots of gun. Lots of loot. Simple.
As an aside, this brings me to think about Aliens: Colonial Marines again, another 4-player co-op shooter from Gearbox. Set in the Aliens universe as the title implies, this sees your squad of 4 marines visiting LV-246 and getting thoroughly destroyed by the sharp, slimy creatures. I mention this only because I first read about this approximately 1 year before the release of the original Borderlands. With two games and many years to perfect their 4-player co-op shooting mechanic, I look forward to this game an incredible amount. I'll even be playing it through with my Dad... I hope he isn't shocked by the language that can be spurted out during the undoubtedly tense encounters that will occur.
So, after that little digression.. what are you playing this weekend? If you're playing Borderlands 2, what class will you be playing primarily?
