Hey guys, guess who else is very fond of Gearbox’s recently released Borderlands? Cliffy B! The lead designer of the much loved Gear of Wars series, has given the FPS+RPG offspring incredibly high praises, even going as far as to claim it as the Diablo of this generation.
“Borderlands, I adore you,” Tweets Mr. Bleszinski. “You’re Diablo for a generation raised on first person shooters. I want a Claptrap.”
I rushed to the store to pick up my copy of Borderlands the second the game hit store shelves, and while there are parts that I find are a little repetitive, or a little unoriginal at time, and while I dont play it much anymore, namely due to Dragon Age taking a considerable amount of time out of my day, I don’t think there is a day that has gone by without me at least spending an hour with this unique little RPS (Role-Playing Shooter). Yeah, the game IS that freaking good! I love it! There is just so much to do in that game, and everything you pick up is so customizable.
Look, take it from us, if you haven’t played the game yet, do yourself a favor and go pick it up this very second… Go! Right now!
Oh, and Mr. Bleszinski, I would also like a Claptrap very much.[via Cliffy’s Twitter]
