Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel: Handsome Jack Teaser and Athena Commentary Gameplay

     It looks like the PAX East Handsome Jack Trailer has finally been made available- the one where Handsome Jack reads, well, alters and modifies the poem Ozymandias by Percy Bysshe Shelley.

     Hopefully, the game truly can show us the transformation of Jack the hero into Handsome Jack the tremendous A-hole we all know and love.  This game will supposedly be showing us the gradual change of someone that starts as good becoming a tyrant.  By the sounds of it, we'll be given a way to look at Jack with a little more of a sympathetic eye, and maybe a slightly lesser view of the Vault Hunters' morally high ground- a sort of equalization- as he becomes a monster.

     In addition to the release of the trailer above, we get a demo video with commentary and some gameplay footage of the character Athena (as well as small bits with Wilhelm, and a cameo with Claptrap).  I wonder what will become of her as she is the only main character not mentioned in Borderlands 2...

     Overall, this looks to follow the tried and true formula of the Borderlands series, and will no doubt be more of the same enjoyable shoot and loot game loaded with humor.
