Awesome

HostileParadox | July 9, 2013 | Review of Borderlands 2 (NA)

This game is best enjoyed when teaming up with your friends, but it is equally fun on your own. It improves on the original in every way, and if you loved the first game, you will love this sequel. FPS fun with a sense of humor, and a large variety of guns and abilities to suit your play style.

Enjoyable, but not what it was billed as.

HostileParadox | July 9, 2013 | Review of Aliens: Colonial Marines

The game is ok, not as good looking as the E3 and PAX videos promised though. Gearbox issued lots of patches to fix some of the looks and AI in the game, so it is now worth playing, and not as bad as when it first came out. The power loader is used once and poorly in the story, and not available to use in multiplayer. The game has canon altering retcon story twist that you may or may not enjoy, towards the end.

Multiplayer lets you play as Aliens or Marines in different game modes, you will die a lot until you lock some of the more useful alien and marine upgrades.

Overall if you are a fan of the series it is worth buying, but I would suggest waiting until it goes on sale or the game of the year edition comes out with all the DLC.
