2K Games have today confirmed the lastest game in the Borderlands series. Sadly not Borderlands 3 but Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. The game takes place on Pandora’s moon and is set between the first and second Borderlands.

Fighting alongside Handsome Jack we’ll get the chance to play as four characters already familiar to the Borderlands Universe:

  • Athena, the Gladiator: Uses her Kinetic Aspis, which is a shield that can absorb incoming damage, then convert it back into energy to use against enemies. Athena made her debut in The Secret Armory of General Knoxx DLC for the first Borderlands game.
  • Wilhelm, the Enforcer: Wilhelm was previously seen in Borderlands 2 as one of the first deadly bosses in the game.
  • Nisha, the Lawbringer: The sheriff of Lynchwood from Borderlands 2, Nisha will be dealing out her own brand of justice.
  • Claptrap, the Fragtrap: The goofy robot companion from Borderlands 2, now playable for the first time.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel will be released in Autumn 2014 on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. Next-gen owners will have to wait for Borderlands 3 which is apparently not even in development yet :-(

The evolution of girl gamers

Boy gamers are so self-centered they act as though women haven’t been playing video games for decades, and then act horrified when the female gamers who have always been there actually become visible and vocal about the rampant misogyny that has infected the gaming world. 
Like seriously, how entitled do you have to be that women saying “it sure would be nice if I wasn’t treated like shit while enjoying the games I play” translates to “I must be catered to” when video games have LITERALLY been catered to men for decades? 

It’s more like
A history of women and videogames throughout the years
1995 - Playing the vidya gaems
1996 - Playing the vidya gaees
1997 - Playing the vidya gaems
1998 - Playing the vidya gaems
1999 - Playing the vidya gaems
2000 - Playing the vidya gaems
2001 - Playing the vidya gaems
2002 - Playing the vidya gaems
2003 - Playing the vidya gaems
2004 - Playing the vidya gaems2005 - Playing the vidya gaems
2006 - WTF do you mean women don’t play video games? What the hell have I been doing my whole life?2007 - Oh gosh. Glados is awesome. Oh gosh, I get to play as Chell. Oh gosh, I love this game.
2008 - deviantART, mostly game fanart by mostly girls
2009 - Wait, there ACTUALLY is a misconception that only guys play video games? I thought that person from three years ago was just an idiot.
2010 - “I just got beat by a girl”? Really? I didn’t know thumb strength and reaction time was gender specific.
2011 - … You know, video games in general are almost always geared towards men. Maybe that’s why it’s a surprise to so many people that I have hobbies and interests.
2012 - Fuck sitting around and complaining about games being sexist. I need to get off my ass do something about this.

A history of me, a female, and videogames through the years 1985 hey playing games on the commodore 1986 hey MAKING games on the commodore … Add lots of years of playing . . Nowadays: huh lookit all those man tears :fires up Steam:

What on Earth was I doing for all of those years???? Did…. did I dream up all those Zelda games? Did I dream the Donkey Kong?

A woman was responsible for your precious video games. Literally. Look up Roberta Williams.

An academic book came out in 1998 about girls who plays videogames and treats them as established players BECAUSE THEY ARE.
Girls have been playing videogames for as long as videogames have been out. Stop kidding yourself.

Check at the fake geek guy who put a timeline that starts in ninenteen NINETY five over an image of Super Mario Bros. LOL. Only started playing video games twenty years ago? That’s so cute! Maybe he wants girls to stop playing for a while so he can catch up with us.
