Invisible Pony Rides, Bill Cosby, And Several Seconds Of Borderlands 2 In Action

Earlier today thousands of Borderlands fans flocked to UStream for the chance to catch some gameplay footage of the popular game's upcoming sequel. They got a little -- very little -- but first they got a whole lot more.

Three days of no sleep and German spirits weigh heavily on Gearbox marketing and PR VP Steve Gibson and friends as they broadcast live from Gamescom this afternoon, talking about the various merits of Borderlands 2 via an extremely brief gameplay demonstration and a pre-written question and answer session. That should explain the Cosby impression, the occasional foul language, and the gleeful imaginary pony riding.

What it doesn't excuse is the sad flashes of gameplay that occurred during the 30-minute presentation. You're seeing all the gameplay I saw in the video above.

Steve looked just as surprised as I was when the camera panned backed to him the first time, so I get the feeling he really wanted to show everyone more. Hell, he got the guys to act it out for us. That counts for something!



    Game looks interesting so far. I want to know if its going to be a bit more open-world or if it will be like the first one. I don't mind either way, just want to know. lol

    Uhh... when the gameplay is on the television, thats what you point the camera at... douchebag.

    The camera man should be shot.

      Er... no, they obviously weren't allowed to show more than a few seconds of gameplay. The camera man would have been shot of he showed MORE.

    Hey, that's the brother-guy from HAWP, yes?

    Also, I would have rather watched Borderlands 2 for the whole clip :-P
