Borderlands 2 Summed Up In One Clip

Borderlands 2 just got brand new downloadable content. It's called Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep, and it's fantastic. It's seriously the best Borderlands 2 DLC yet. Partially because it's huge and partially because it's basically fan service to a hell of a lot of games (including Borderlands itself, of course) that we adore.

But it wouldn't be a slice of Borderlands without some silliness, and so I present exhibit A as proof that Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep maintains the expectation the series has set.

Watch me play the DLC above as I try to solve a puzzle to unlock a gate. I spent a good chunk of time trying to figure out its code, analyzing symbols and patterns and even scrawling notes with pen and paper (something I haven't done since Fez!). Which I love to do! I love puzzles.

But then Borderlands 2 goes and turns everything on its head and I'm all, I should've known, Borderlands. I should have known.

torn on this. i loved the hell out of borderlands 2, and put at least 60 hours into it (not a lot and you'll see why). finished the main game without too much trouble, just struggled on some of the more rough enemies (for some reason i'd really struggle with constructors), and i got a little ways into new game +, but since i played alone the entire time, therewas the point at which i couldn't improve my skills or loadout enough to continue. i think i was fighting captain flynt for the second time and just getting demolished by his henchmen.

now i've read about all the dlcs for this that they're similarly more difficult than the main game, and that means that i probably won't be able to enjoy them, but on the other hand, they all look really good and i want them
