This was incredibly nice of Borderlands developer Gearbox. Ben and his girlfriend Tora are huge fans and when Ben reached out to Gearbox they made the very cool and funny video above to help Ben out. Want to know what she said? Well watch the video after the jump, ok fine she said YES, I can’t keep surprises.
Ben came up with the idea after finding out that he and his girlfriend both at huge fans and actually the same level. He didn’t mind if Gearbox said no because he still wanted to tell them how much of a fan he is. Randy Pitchford, CEO of Gearbox “was one of the biggest pushers of the idea, saying ‘we really need to do something on this.'” Ben visited Gearbox a few times to work on the video with Adam Fletcher and Chris Faylor.
Ben came up with a cover story to get all of his friends together, you can watch it in the video below, he told everyone that it was the Borderlands II trailer. “He got to go to Gearbox?” Tora said. “I was like, ‘you bastard, I want to go!'” Don’t worry Gearbox invited the happy couple down to visit Gearbox and Gearbox staff is even invited to the wedding in August.
