As-I-Play Borderlands 2: Oops (Part Two)

So the theme of this post is about me making mistakes. First mistake – not remembering (like a total n00b) to check what the buttons on my controller do every time I level up. Turns out, I have a fun power that I didn’t realize I had and that I’ve probably been able to use […]
