The Borderlands series is going to go all Rozencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead.
In the next chapter you’re going to play two “less adventurous” characters from the world of Pandora, not Vault Hunters. You play through their accounts of recent events, but they’ll be “Big Fish-like” recollections where stories don’t add up and details change between accounts. So they’re going to start telling the same story from tertiary characters and explore human aspects where perspective changes details.

A Wall Street hedge fund manager puts it in plain language. The US’s current economy and culture have created wealth addiction, and it’s tearing this country, and probably the world, apart. Fantastic piece, read it:
I’d always looked enviously at the people who earned more than I did; now, for the first time, I was embarrassed for them, and for me. I made in a single year more than my mom made her whole life. I knew that wasn’t fair; that wasn’t right. Yes, I was sharp, good with numbers. I had marketable talents. But in the end I didn’t really do anything. I was a derivatives trader, and it occurred to me the world would hardly change at all if credit derivatives ceased to exist. Not so nurse practitioners.
Awesome. I hope the woman pressing charges wins and that it sets a precedent for change from top to bottom.
Brought to you by a lack of net neutrality rules and a scary slippery slope. What’s next, paying AT&T to charge you double for visiting a competitor’s service?
When are people going to understand: Doctor Who is not scifi, IT’S A DOCUMENTARY.
