While Mass Effect 3 will likely dominate March and many of the month after it, Gearbox would like to take a moment to remind you that their anticipated sequel to their post-apocalyptic hit Borderlands will be out in September, at which point you should be jonesing for another big game. I never played the first one (go figure) but I admit, this trailer has my seriously thinking about getting the sequel. The subtly cel-shaded graphics are out-standing, and the characters designs are excellent, too. But most of all, I have to approve of any game that uses the word “bazilliondier.” (Via Kotaku)
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
