Get a grip on lasers in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

LAZOR

As much as Borderlands has evolved over the years from a loot ‘n shoot extragavanza to a wacky and horribly violent adventure with great characters, it’s always been about one thing: Guns. Bazillions of them. And then some. Borderlands 2 gave the weapon formula a massive overhaul, and the Pre-Sequel is adding to that with two new types. By now, you know plenty about the cryo guns on offer. But it’s time to show some love for lasers.

Here’s the final video for The Making Of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, which shows a lot of love and detail for laser guns. From my hands on, lasers are a different beast altogether, especially if you enjoy using Maliwan weapons. The lasers on those guns feel like the proton streams from Ghostbusters, and require some serious rangling to control the immense power output. Naturally, you don’t want to cross those beams anytime soon.

If you can’t watch the video above, know that it touches on the topic of DLC, which I seem to be stuck writing about today. Still, the video highlights Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragonkeep, which was an excellent piece of content in my opinion that set a benchmark in the industry. It didn’t just craft a great story, but Assault on Dragonkeep offered some truly varied gameplay that made the best possible use of the Borderlands 2 mechanics, making it feel fresh again.

And if the Pre-Sequel has DLC like that on the way, then the fans are going to be plenty pleased. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is out next week.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

        nice

  • Hammersteyn

    I will get this……..on PS4.

    • if they release it on PS4 that is….

      • Hammersteyn

        I think they will. They just might.

        • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

          They probably will. Eidos is remastering Sleeping Dogs for heavens sake. Blizzard remastered Diablo 3. It’s all getting out of hand.

          • Hammersteyn

            Remastered is the new buzz word, Resident Evil, Tomb Raider and now even Sleeping Dogs.

          • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

            Now if only they can forget about DEEE EELLLL CEEEEE!!!

        • Sageville

          I wish upon a star….

          • Hammersteyn

            hahaha

    • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

      I will get this… on PS3. Because, late at night I cuddle up next to my precious and gently stroke one or even two of its USB ports.

      • Hammersteyn

        LOL maybe I should stop treating my PS3 like the old dog it is and stop playing with the new puppy

        • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

          You can pleasure both – ask Jacob Zuma. He manages to pleasure 4 wives and a couple chicks on the side. The man should be an inspiration to us all. Where does he get his stamina from? Is he using tablets? Is he even a real person? These are the questions that keep me up at night….

            At least one of those questions is frequently asked about you, and it’s not the one about stamina.

      Indeed ol’ sock!

    How does a laser gun have recoil?

    • Kensei Seraph – Staff

      I’d imagine it would have recoil in a similiar manner to a high-strength flamethrower.

  • Kensei Seraph – Staff

    There are so many game I really need to buy (and play) this month.

    I’m starting to think I may use brackets more often than I should.

    The world is on the brink of going boom-boom….
