Posts Tagged ‘Axton’

Welcome to the world of proxy damage dealing and the sound of a large rocket mounted turret unleashing the very definition of destruction upon your very unlucky opponents. In this week’s article, I’ll be giving an in-depth look into the Borderlands 2 characters known as Axton, the Commando. While he is very far from being the highest source of damage per second, or DPS, in the game (which honestly shouldn’t matter all that much considering just how much chaos and destruction is being flung around during a normal four man game), he more than makes up for it with his ability, the Sabre Turret. With that ability by his side, any Commando player becomes a force to be reckoned with, hailing down massive amounts of damage with either dual turrets or a single destructive double-barrel slag gun.  Within the depths of the following article you’ll find my recommended builds, favorite guns, and a little backstory on the character. Hope you enjoy! (more…)

Alrighty folks, so even though I haven’t really beaten the game yet, I’ve decided to give a ‘work in progress’ kind of review concerning the fancy new game I’m sure we’ve all been sinking our teeth into lately. While a lot of hype was generated for this title, I’ve had a lot of people asking me whether or not it would be a good idea to pick it up if they didn’t really enjoy the original. Bottom line, my answer is no. Borderlands 2 works by improving an already fun formula for those of us who enjoyed it, and while it brings a lot more upgraded stuff of the same type, it doesn’t truly redefine the mechanics, gameplay or storytelling potential of the original. The plot is definitely a lot more in-depth and detailed with tons of wacky characters, but I think if you simply didn’t enjoy the original, you won’t enjoy this one. Anyway, continue forth to read on about what’s going on in my head concerning Borderlands 2. (more…)

Apparently the long awaited sequel to the Gearbox best-selling game of the year Borderlands will be worth the wait, according to devs. Not only will it come preloaded with new classes and a slew of infinitely more guns than its predecessor, but Borderlands 2 will also feature a ramped up A.I that will bring an air of more difficulty to those of us veterans. While everything here is merely hearsay until we see a good comparison video between the games, I think it’s safe to assume that Gearbox will deliver as they always have. I’m looking forward to having enemies swarm me as I mow them down with the latest and greatest gun I just picked up, or use the newest abilities to completely demolish them. Either way, hopefully I’ll manage to find a couple of you fans out there on the borderlands.
