If you haven’t played Borderlands… SHAME!
Oh shameful gamer, you have deprived yourself of a really entertaining co-op experience. Perhaps even worse, you didn’t have the background knowledge to get this week’s Unicorn Soup comic. So here’s some crummy exposition.
Borderlands is a game predicated on the well known fact that gamers love collecting shinier, bigger and flashier stuff. All this collecting leads your protagonist to the mysterious “Vault” where players are led to believe there’ll be amazing stuff. In the end though, the Vault isn’t crammed full of guns it’s crammed full of an angry space… well, you saw the alt-text this week.
It looks like a vagina with teeth.
To purge that visual, here’s a teaser trailer released this week at Gamescom…it’s not very long so you may have to watch it several times to get the teeth thing out of your head.
