|Borderlands 2 (2012; 2k Games/Gearbox)|
The first, most noticeable difference is the game world. We open on Pandora and find ourselves battling it out in a big urban landscape with big robots and running mercenaries firing upon us. It looks just great. I was awestruck by the inventiveness of the weapons employed in the demo and now Borderlands 2 is among my favorite games I've seen so far.
Gearbox is a talented developer and now that they appear to not be drawing themselves into an aesthetic corner with the new environments, I think we will see this company at their fullest potential. With a September, 2012 release date, this is easily one of the most anticipated games of E3. Good luck, Gearbox!
