GOL Cast: Freezing Bandits and Claptrap Logic in Borderlands 2

By Samsai,
There has to be a conspiracy of some sort against us. I believe someone somewhere is deliberately trying to ruin our productivity by unleashing a storm of awesome games that we (at least I) get hooked on. Here's one of them: Borderlands 2!
