The Week In Games: Loot And Shoot With Your Friends

The Week In Games: Loot And Shoot With Your Friends

After a long wait, the new Borderlands is finally coming out this week. Borderlands 3 is releasing for PS4, Xbox One, and PC and bringing with it some ridiculous number of guns. Maybe too much loot, really?
