In many ways, Claptrap is really just a symbol for humanity, a cruel joke meant to cause us to reflect on how and where we went wrong, or maybe he's just a dumb, stupid, ugly robot. Either way, he's got his own web series and I don't so I guess that puts me in my place! Episode 2 of Claptrap's Video Series is now live. What would Borderlands 2 be without Claptrap and his droll humor? Well, they wouldn't have a VGA for best character of the year, and that's saying something.
Excuse me for getting down to serious adult talk for a moment, but this episode looks really awesome. Considering the bleak and dirty look from a majority of the settings in Borderlands 2, it's fun to see what the team at Gearbox can do if they have a mind to create some great looking scenes. Take us to Austria in the next Borderlands 2 DLC and show us more greenery, guys.
Borderlands 2 has been out since mid-September for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, and has two campaign DLCs out by the names of Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty and Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage. I'd expect the announcement of the third campaign DLC relatively soon. Add in monthly installments of Claptrap's video series and it's basically like Borderlands 2 is that guy from college who always hangs out at your place but doesn't pay rent.
