So you may have noticed that the cover isn't, as promised last issue, Borderlands the Pre-Sequel. Funny story and a perfect addendum to last month's screed on privilege. I ended up last issue's editorial saying I was off to LA to play Borderlands. That much was true when I took off. When I landed, however, I discovered that due to a last minute build push to get ready for E3, Borderlands would not actually be shown. This is the reality of travelling for work and games writing. Last minute lineup changes frequently happen. Deadlines shift, release dates are pushed and unforseen delays get in the way. It's an ongoing but unavoidable frustration. The cost of doing business. So now I'm off to Canberra to play it. Fingers crossed that there are no more slips so my next issue page doesn't lie a second time.
On an unrelated note, how about all the bullshit going around about the supposed "cult" of Slenderman. Now at least I know what I can say when I finally crack and get crazy and naked with a rifle in a clock tower. A fictional character created by Something Awful made me do it.
Enjoy the issue.
