Behold a ten minute video on what’s new and noteworthy about Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.
You know the type; both Watch Dogs and Grand Theft Auto V have had them. They usually amount to some PR type harping on for a while over gameplay footage…
The difference here is that Gearbox have so many deliriously funny writers that the entirety of this intro video is screamed at you by fan favourite Mr Torque. (Fan Favourite Sir Hammerlock is also there, but it’s hard to hear him over the medellymeedelymmeedeelymeeeowwws!)
This video is legitimately laugh out loud funny, not just solid-attempt-by-corporate-PR-person kind of amusing. So rather than give you a rundown about what they talk about, I’m just going to list the different phrases that appear onscreen while Mr Torque is screaming his feelings at you
PEW PEW MOTHERF#$%ER
WHATEVER GETS YOU THERE
THE ABYSS GAZES ALSO INTO YOU
WOW. SUCH MEMES. VERY REGRET.
Seriously, even if you’re not terribly interested this particular Borderlands 3 stop-gap, you should watch it as an example of gaming promotion done really, really well.
