Nice Plays: Borderlands 2 (2012)

“Nice Plays” are video episodes where your nice hosts play and talk about a game for 17 (or in this case, 19) minutes, and then an egg timer goes off!

(Watch this and other Nice Plays on YouTube for HD-quality.)

In this episode, Mark plays the opening chapter of one of Martha’s very favorite games, Borderlands 2, and then Martha takes over to show off her badassitude. Your nice hosts talk about narrative in FPS games, generous loot systems, and how wonderful/terrible Claptrap is.
