The Borderlands Boss Mash-Up! [ Guide ]
We’re just a few days away from the release of Borderlands 2, and for those who use that time to get up to date with the original, there is the chance of getting yourself stuck somewhere along the way. No worries, though, we’re here to rescue you from the clutches of whatever colourful character has his hands on you! Note that these are only the mandatory bosses, needed to complete the main story.

BORDERLANDS 2 All you need to know... [ PREVIEW ]
When the trailers for the first Borderlands game came out, everyone thought
that the graphics and the game itself may become one of those industry "what
not to do" jokes. After the release of the game though - which as we all know
was a great critical and commercial success - the game gained a lot of fans who
swore by the game.
Since the end [...More
Borderlands 2 [ Preview ]
The original Borderlands, released in 2009, can very comfortably be described as a sleeper hit. There was a tremendous list of things that game reporters felt it was not, but tried to be a lot of things. It was said it tried to be Fallout on steroids, and it wasn’t. It was said it tried to be Gears of War, but it wasn’t. I’m pretty sure it wasn’t Bioshock either. The point through all of the negativity only dawned after its release; it didn’t need to be any of that, because it was Borderlands. It was fun, and that’s all [...More
Looking Forward: Halo 4, Borderlands 2, and Fable: The Journey
Halo 4 is undoubtedly one of the biggest upcoming releases. Every entry in the Halo franchise, even the spin-offs like Reach and ODST, are monumental video game events, selling millions of copies on the first day of release. Halo 4 will likely continue that success, but Halo 4 is ever the more interesting since it's the first original Halo game not developed by series creators Bungie. Will 343 Industries be able to successfully take the reigns and deliver a new Halo experience that can compete with the other major shooters like Call of Duty and Battlefield? The first Borderlands game [...More

The original Borderlands was a huge hit. It was developed by Gearbox Software, and published by 2K Games.

Take your place on a bizarre and desolute planet, trashed during recent events and inhabited only by drastically mutated aliens and creatures who's only goal in life is to eat you, or just kill you if they're not feeling hungry when you stumble across their path. Welcome to Borderlands!
