Borderlands 2: Love Letter from Claptrap

In a mushy love letter from Claptrap, the iconic character from Borderlands, Borderlands 2 promises optimization for the PC version. It took the feedback from the players of Borderlands and decided to implement many features for the PC version of Borderlands 2. 
Here is the list of things that Claptrap has promised:
  • FOV slider
  • Fully mouse-compatible menus with wheel scrolling
  • Remappable keys
  • PC Specific UI
  • Native Matchmaking
  • Push-to-Talk
  • Logitech Keyboard support
  • LAN support
  • Controller support
  • Integrated v-sync option
  • Support for higher resolutions
  • Mouse smooth options (especially complete disablement)
  • Cloud saves
  • Achievements
  • Friends Lists
  • No port forwarding needed
I love the delivery from 2KGames, how they used Claptrap, and how they listened to the players' feedback. This love letter has done nothing but made me even more excited for Borderlands 2. Personally, I didn't think that the controls and UI was that bad in Borderlands, but if they are promising so many things, it's definitely going to be much better.

  1. I would do bad things to that robot. Illegal things involving his ports. This is actually a pretty damn cool ad campaign though, and it's great they listened to feedback, and even better, acted on it.

  2. Haha that is pretty awesome, and an ingenious move by 2KGames.

  3. sweet, i hated the nonchangable keys,
    and finally LAN support for my parties

  4. now I can start to love claptrap again

  5. It shows that they give a crap about the customer/player, good to hear....

  6. WOW, they actually listened to the players in Borderlands, but not in their NBA 2k games?! Lucky!

  7. Unfortunately my computer still won't be able to run it... ><

  8. Ohh I love the rose!! The game I need to do more research on. lol

  9. I didn't like the first one, maybe I will give the second a try.
