The Bolshevik in the Borderlands

My new article for the Escapist is up: The Bolshevik in the Borderlands (I didn’t come up with that title, but I rather like it).


  1. The corporate satire in the Zombie Island DLC alone makes it worth playing.

    (The Claptrap Revolution DLC makes some rather petty jokes about revolution, but it was not developed by the same people, and it shows in all areas. Then again, it at least still has a wonderfully evil corporate dude.)

    Apart from the politics, though, Borderlands is simply full of brilliant details – it’s clearly a game made with a lot of love.

  2. Who is your favourite character and why?

    Only ever played sniper, and it seemed like a good choice while playing.
    Eagle was horrible, but you gets tons of chances to use long range weapons and hardly ever are you in a horrible situation to use them.

  3. My favourite character is probably Brick, especially in multiplayer. In single player I adored Mordecai – whose bird, by the way, can be very powerful if skill points are invested in it.

    Having played all the characters for some time, though, I think that all of them are great fun.
