Writer Jeffrey Matulef joins us as we reminisce about our time at PAX Prime 2011. Not only did we get our hands on Lollipop Chainsaw, Aliens: Infestation, the PS Vita, and (of course) Borderlands 2, but you'll find out what happened when Brad let Richard interact with his son. No children were harmed in the production of this podcast. As far as we know. Featuring Brad Gallaway, Mike Bracken, Richard Naik, and Tim "Two Balls" Spaeth.

I also totally agree with most of the criticism thrown at the game, in large part because those grievances kept me from finishing the game myself. No (compelling) story, fetch quests, bland enviros, blah blah etc. However, I must say that I am becoming more intrigued by Borderlands 2 – if nothing else because maybe they have the funds and vision now for what the game… Read more »
