Borderlands 2: Mr. Torgue Hosting an AMA on Reddit
The WWF-esque CEO of Torgue Enterprises is playing host to an AMA (Ask Me Anything) session over at Reddit. Given his penchant for explosions and capitalization, don't expect too much in the way of info for the new Borderlands 2 DLC, Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage, at least, not nearly as much NSFW language and out there humor. Here are some of my personal favorite highlights of the session so far.
[-]MISTERTORGUE[S] - I FEEL LIKE I COULD MAKE A JOKE ABOUT SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASES HERE BUT I WON'T BECAUSE I'M A CLASSY MOTHERF*CKER
Q - DO YOU LIKE DOUGHNUTS WITH DYNAMITE SPRINKLES?
[-]MISTERTORGUE[S] - I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WAS A THING BRING ME EIGHT HUNDRED OF THEM AT ONCE
[-]MISTERTORGUE[S] - THAT QUESTION IMPLIES I HAVE A LEAST FAVORITE WAY TO BLOW THINGS UP WHICH IS F*CKING QUITTER TALK. WHILE HIGH-FIVING A CLASSY LADY
Q - Do you prefer plastic explosives, chemical, or good old fashion gun powder?
[-]MISTERTORGUE[S] - THAT'S LIKE ASKING ME TO CHOOSE A FAVORITE CHILD OR SOMETHING EXCEPT WAY HARDER BECAUSE SOME CHILDREN ARE OBVIOUSLY BETTER THAN OTHERS (EXAMPLE: MOZART)
Q - Mr Torgue, you are awesome, how can I begin my journey down the path of becoming more awesome like you?
[-]MISTERTORGUE[S] - PUMP IRON AND OPEN DOORS FOR PEOPLE
I wish these nuggets of advice like these were in every single fortune cookie. Ever.
The next full episode DLC for Borderlands 2, Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage, will be approximately the same length as the last DLC, Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty, and will similarly include new content, such as trophies, weapons, new challenges for badass ranks, and a new currency called Torgue Tokens that can be used to purchase weapons from a new type of vending machines. Each machine offers new weapons, including one legendary weapon as a daily special.
The DLC is centered around the discovery of another Vault on the world of Pandora, located in the colorfully named "Badass Crater of Badassitude." The Vault will only open "once the champion of Pandora feeds it the blood of the ultimate coward," so of course, Mr. Torgue has set up an arena in an attempt to find the champion, and open the vault.
"New-ish" enemy types are to be included - Pschos and marauders are included, but they're specific to this new area. The DLC has a heavy biker vibe, with muscle cars and motorcycles seen throughout (Torgue, torque, get it?). Competing in the arena requires a sponsor, of which there will be a range of. Tannis, and Mad Moxxi all return in the new DLC, along with Tiny Tina as a potential sponsor.
After Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage, Gearbox has two more add-on campaigns scheduled to release in the coming months.
Speaking with GameZone, Gearbox President Randy Pitchford said, "We are just getting started and have incredible momentum to improve and add to the game all the way through the holiday season and beyond. We can't wait to show everyone what more we have in store for Borderlands 2."
Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage is out tomorrow, Nov. 20.
