Claptrap wants you to buy Borderlands Game of the Year Edition!
Borderlands: Claptrap Web Series ep. 4
You're going to hate me for this one....
I had purchased this game on the rave reviews detailing its excellence and gave it a go. All seemed well enough on first impressions and i was intrigued by the concept of a hybrid between RPG elements mixed with a first person shooter. To anyone, even myself (at first), that concept alone seemed like a winner in my book. 2K games hoped that the concept would make this title look like a duck in water...but the fact of the matter was that this game was more compareable to a turd in the pool: I just cant float with it. As much as i really wanted to like this game, i felt that the RPG elements killed any and all replay value for me.
First off, you have 4 characters to choose from and aside from their ONE SINGLE TALENT, you are just a floating gun for all intents and purposes. Granted you have a world of warcraft-like talent tree with different benefits, you still only have one skill. Everyone can use the same weapons, some slightly better than others through talents, but nothing more. I mean, come on! At least have weapon restrictions to make the characters more unique, or better yet, GIVE THEM MORE THAN ONE FUCKING SKILL!!!
The physics were another pet peeve to me. Seriously. I'm not shitting you. At lvl 30, crimson lance soldier should NOT TAKE 15-20 FUCKING HEADSHOTS TO KILL. It's not fun at all. It's frustrating. It's a joke. I even forget this is supposed to be an FPS. I can understand if it's a 50 foot mutant who can crush you under his foot, but not when it's just a random ass-clown with a potato gun soaking up 50 rounds in his chest before he only slows down and doesnt fucking die. Another fine example if a great RPG element. Classic. I dont remember that element in gears of war, or halo, or moder warfare, or....ah fuck it.
Listen. I'm not saying the game sucks in general, in fact I think it's a great game. There's alot of cool shit to do here and alot of awesome weapons and items to find, but the bottom line? If you want to play a FPS, stick to halo or black ops. If you want to play an RPG, Play world of warcraft...final fantasy 14 sucks donkey balls. Otherwise, expect to buy a few extra control paddles XD
Oh, and my ratings for this game: GAME RATING: 8/10=Great
FRUSTRATION: 5/5 BROKEN PADDLES=Unplayable

Does your special someone play video games? Would you ever think to ask a company to help you propose in that game?
Ben and his lady Tisha (Tora) are Borderlands fans. Ben decided he wanted to propose to her in a very special way. He asked Gearbox to help him with a proposal video and they did a hilarious job.

Usually you release a trailer before the game, not the other way around. UPDATE... Trailer is up finally!
Well, the Claptrap DLC is out. I'm not getting it yet, the patch that ups the level cap is not out yet and there's no real word on exactly when it will be out... Just "soon". Also there was supposed to be a trailer for it... It still says coming soon. It seems dumb to run through a new DLC when my characters are maxxed out, I know they don't controll the exact release date of the patch as it has to be approved by MS and Sony, but they need to have this lined up or at least give us an idea where it stands.
I don't get it. If I ran a big gaming company, you can be sure that when a big game/dlc pack comes out you can be damn sure I'd hype the shit out of it BEFORE it came out. Hopefully we'll see something soon.
Trailer is now live. 12 hours after the game came out... but who's counting.

Thanks to Raychul for sharing our video in her Top 7 Things Gamers Hate. I'll tell you 1 thing gamers don't hate. Boobs. :)
So you can hear me screaming about vintage Borderlands' invisible walls @3:09.
Leave a comment on this video on YouTube for me too and give a shout out to Gouki.com. Don't be a Jimmy!
Check out her site. I'm sure you Jimmys will love it.
Number 1 in the World!
A little FFXIII, some BFBC2, definitely mix in that Blur Beta. Does anyone want to play the Bioshock 2 multiplayer with me?
Today I'm gonna be pwnn all day long. Does anyone want to play the Bioshock 2 multiplayer or what? If I'm playing FFXIII leave me alone. What about some more Borderlands? You can never run through the armory enough. Here's the list.Read full story...

2010 Jimmy Gem nominees for best games still being played from 2009. Please comment.
Nobody put more time into Borderlands than BatRastered this year. Borderlands also released 2 DLC's and a patch that raised the level cap. Borderlands is one of the most talked about games on Gouki.com. Borderlands catalog page.
Personally I played the shit out of this game this year. I love it! According to Raptr I played 119 hours of this. What it doesn't say is that was within a weeks time span. Read the PWN diaries.
Halo 3 [Jan-Sept]
You gotta be playing some sort of Halo right Jimmy. Halo is Gouki.com's preferred shooter.
Street Fighter IV [Jan-Apr]
"Insert Cinderkin endless battle on endless nights take here."
Winners will be announced December 29th. Did we leave anything out? What's your favorite? Leave a comment below! AND don't forget to vote for your favorites in our Video Game Catalog.
What's the best DLC of 2010? See our nominees here and voice your opinion in the comments.
Borderlands - The Secret Armory of General Knoxx
Nothing mad me laugh harder than this add on this year. Quality humor, plus raising the level cap by 11 and giving us new weapons and shields to play with? Sign me up.
Red Dead Redemption - The Undead Nightmare
John Marston is back (from the dead?) that alone should be enough for this. New weapons and, of course, Zombears make this an exciting new addition. Let's not forget that Rockstar gave us some free DLC for this earlier too.
Halo Reach - Noble Map Pack
Okay, multiplayer map packs aren't super exciting, especially when there's only 3 of them for 10 bucks, but these are really good maps and that counts for something.
Winners will be announced December 29th. Did we leave anything out? What's your favorite? Leave a comment below!
Here's a pretty sweet video with a ton of clips, I've never seen before. PC tools heard. Irrelevant, still looks cool. Let the Borderlands 2 hype machine begin!

FnJimmy astonishes us all once again. Completely not paying attention or straight up STEALING from GoukiJones? You make the call. Watch the video.
If you can't hear what's going on. What happened was, GoukiJones upgraded his shield and offered his old one to FnJimmy. FnJimmy takes it. Just a little while later, GoukiJones finds another shield and then gives his old one to FnJimmy as well. At this point though FnJimmy denies even asking for the first one, saying that his shield that he's had on all night is better than both. WTF? Don't be a Jimmy!
A Game Of The Year Edition 10 Years Later. SOLD!
I've been wanting a revisit to this classic game for a few years now. It looks like I'll have my excuse on April 3rd, 2019! Invite me!
