The Most Fun I’ve Had In A While…

So, a lot of things have been keeping me from games lately; “A lot of things” being dating an absolutely wonderful someone for the past month and a half. Recently, a friend of mine found a nice little deal on Steam for Borderlands. It was marked off 50% to begin with, but there was also a 4-pack priced so each copy of the game came out to about $18.50. I must say, it’s the best $18.50 (or more…) I’ve spent on a game in a long, long time. I’ll give three reasons why I play this game (and you should if you aren’t already):

1. I can play it at my pace (single player) whether I have 20 minutes or 3 hours at a time to entertain myself. I’ve found lately that I can’t play games that take up too much of my time any more. Between working, dating and pursuing a real career on the side I almost always choose to spend my free time out of the house instead of indoors. That being said, I need to play games that I can dedicate very little time to (on a daily basis). No more 5-hour EXP grinds for me.

2. I can play it with my friends online whenever we’re all online (huge bonus…it’s the same reason that sold me on Titan Quest, actually). It’s the same deal with a lot of games I’ve come to enjoy.

3. It’s got one of the most simple UI I’ve seen lately. There is absolutely nothing unnecessary cluttering my screen. I’ll even add a fourth reason hanging off of this one: the little robot is the most hilariously adorable character for a shooting/looting game EVER. Yeah, cute robot. Come on, how could I say no? Oh, and have I mentioned the artwork is totally awesome (hand-drawn technique)? Now that’s 5 reasons.

Total win? Yep…
