    The game Borderlands 2 is soon to be released, and having seen the recent adverts on TV, it reminded me of something I had seen months ago...

    For those of you who have seen this, I apologise - but for those who haven't, have a look & listen.

    You do not have to like video-games to appreciate this. Read the page and go to the soundcloud link.

    Truly touching stuff.

    Michael John Mamaril was a huge Borderlands fan, until he died of cancer last month at the age of 22. His friend Carlo, also a Borderlands fan, asked Gearbox Software to have the game's snarky robot, Claptrap, eulogize Mamaril. Gearbox did, and it has also promised to include Mamaril as an NPC in Borderlands 2. You can hear the heartfelt eulogy from Claptrap and Gearbox on Soundcloud.
