Unrelatedly, I wanted to mention another neat thing I noticed about Borderlands 2. I'm less than halfway to the level cap (storywise, I have no clue) but there have already been 3 casual mentions of same-sex relationships that are neither plot-crucial, nor puerile or salacious or toilet-humor-y as would actually be par for the course for this franchise. Come to think of it, there was a little of that in one of the BL1 DLCs but it was more juvenile-ly homophobic/erotic. I know it might not play well with the "not gay" crowd, but cue the how-far-we've-come music please.
As a queer gamer, this is really encouraging to hear. I really don't want a 'gay game,' I would just like to see 'gay' treated as a completely normal concept in games, to the point where the game doesn't acknowledge it, it is just there. I am actually more interested in BL2 now because of that; I wish developers would realize that a lot of gamers are female and/or queer, and they'd like to see this more.
