8-Bit Borderlands 2 Is a Thing You Should Try
By Joseph Christ on August 22nd, 2012 (7 comments)
As part of the Borderlands 2 marketing campaign, Gearbox Software have deconstructed Borderlands 2 into its most pure parts and is now offering it up to you like some sort of Dark Crystal juice to make you feel young again.
This 8-bit (maybe more like 16 bit now that I think about it) version of the game is available on this page in the official Borderlands 2 website. It plays like an NES version of Smash TV and includes the four playable characters from Borderlands 2 and weapon crates for you to upgrade your gear.
It's also playable in your browser so you now you have something to slack off at work with. It's also quite fun. I would have written this 20 minutes but...you know...8-Bit Borderlands.
Play it here.
