    At any point while playing Borderlands have you thought to yourself, “You know, this Borderlands place isn’t nearly big enough to accommodate all of my open-world needs.

    2K and Gearbox promised more content following Borderlands' launch last month, and they've certainly delivered. 2K dropped into our offices yesterday to show off upcoming DLC pack The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned, which launches on Xbox Live and PSN shortly.

  • Gearbox Designer Calls Borderlands 2 "No Brainer" If "Everything Makes Sense"

    No, Borderlands 2 hasn't been confirmed yet. The surprise success of Gearbox Software's first-person action RPG -- based on word-of-mouth, anyway, as official numbers aren't in until later this month -- prompted someone to finally ask the developer, "hey, what about Borderlands 2?" You can guess what an excited creative director might...

  • Throwing Away A Gun That Lights Things On Fire In Borderlands Is Really Hard

    (Super sweet fire-breathing weapon not featured above. Just fire. And guns.) I'm early yet into my adventures into Borderlands, but I can already foresee one problem that's going to become more and more difficult as cooler and cooler weapons fall into my hands.
