At long last, the in-depth Borderlands/Borderlands 2 discussion that has for too long been stricken from our main show. For a grueling six hours we tear into every possible facet of the Borderlands franchise, from secret relationships of the NPCs to Randy Pitchford's favorite breakfast cereal. Featuring Richard "Sniper" Naik and Tim "Going in Guns Blazing is Always an Appropriate Course of Action" Spaeth.

Richard Naik

Born and raised in St. Louis, MO, Richard received his first console (the NES) at the age of six, and from that point on games have been an integral part of his life, whether it's been frittering summers away with the likes of Mario, Mega Man, and the Zerg or partaking in marathon sessions of Halo, Team Fortress 2 or Left 4 Dead. After being a longtime reader of GameCritics, Richard joined the staff in March of 2009, and over the years Richard grew into the more prominent role of part-time podcast host.

In 2016, he spearheaded a complete rebuild of the website, earning him the title of Chief Engineer.

His gaming interests are fairly eclectic, ranging from 2D platformers to old-school-style adventure games to RPGs to first-person shooters. So in other words, he’ll play pretty much anything.

I totally botched not name-checking Anthony and Ash (and you Rob). I planned to! It was in my notes! Your year of plugging did not go unnoticed. They both knocked it out of the galaxy with BL2.


while this was not the epic roundtable Borderlands 2 podcast with special guests Anthony (the writer) and Ashly (Tiny Tina) Burch podcast I suggested repeatedly on and off the forum for the past year, it was still ok. Nice to hear Tim sippin gin & juice again. Merry Christmas, fellas!


So far I am not a big fan of the first one. It’s not bad but nothing that gives me incentive the play further.

Still the fact that the colonel is back is reason enough to listen to this episode!

All right, you’ve convinced me. Picking up Borderlands 2 soonish.
