To better convince you that I deserve your assistance, here is a picture of a shirtless man playing guitar while kicking a rhino in the balls in front of a big ass explosion.

To Mr Burch: What other names, aside from Bonerfart, came up during development?

MISTERTORGUE346 karma

All the names that came up are in that quest, actually -- we really considered "Primal Beast" and "Ferovore."

ElOhTeeBee215 karma

Mr. Burch, I have a question - How much freedom do you have to write what you please for the game? Is there a lot of oversight? Do you have any real control over the plot?

MISTERTORGUE698 karma

I have a downright idiotic amount of freedom. Only, like, three people in the company knew about Butt Stallion before we shipped the game.

Rustytire213 karma

I have a question about poetry:

SONNET 116

Let me not to the marriage of true minds

Admit impediments. Love is not love

Which alters when it alteration finds,

Or bends with the remover to remove:

O no! it is an ever-fixed mark

That looks on tempests and is never shaken;

It is the star to every wandering bark,

Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.

Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks

Within his bending sickle's compass come:

Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,

But bears it out even to the edge of doom.

If this be error and upon me proved,

I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

Can you compare how the sonnet deals with the relationship between time and love and explosions?

MISTERTORGUE983 karma

My mistress' eyes are nothing like AN EXPLOSION

EXPLOSIONS ARE far more red than her lips' red;

If snow be white, why then her breasts are NOT EXPLOSIONS BUT STILL PRETTY GREAT

If hairs be DYNAMITE wires, black wires grow on her head.

I have seen roses damask'd, red and white, WHAT DOES DAMASK’D MEAN

But no such EXPLOSIONS see I in her cheeks;

And in some EXPLOSIVES is there more delight

Than in the EXPLOSIONS that from my mistress reeks.

I love to hear her EXPLODE, yet well I know

That EXPLOSIONS hath a far more pleasing sound;

I grant I never saw a EXPLOSION go;

My mistress, when she walks, EXPLODES on the ground:

And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare

As any she belied with false EXPLOSIONS

HI MR. TORGUE, THANKS FOR DOING THIS I'M A BIG FAN OF YOUR PRODUCTS ҉

THANKS FOR TAKING THE TIME TO ANSWER OUR QUESTIONS ҉

MISTERTORGUE450 karma

THERE IS NO LIMIT TO EXPLOSIONS INQUISITORKAEDE

EXPLOSIONS ARE LIKE DREAMS IN THAT THEY ARE BIGGER THAN ANY ONE OF US AND IF YOU BELIEVE IN THEM THERE IS NO LIMIT TO WHAT YOU CAN DO

ZServ141 karma

This is a question for the man behind the explosive-mask:

First off, let me say HI ANTHONY OMGOMGOMG I have been a fan of yours for god-damn ever. We're even FACEBOOK FRIENDS. Alright. Now to the less creepy part of this.

I always loved how verbal you were when you were with Destructoid, and RevRants were by far one of my favorite things about the site besides Chad's Memory Card write-ups. I know in interviews now that it seems like you kind of want to forget that part of your career, and I'm not sure if it's just the way I've viewed it or what. Am I correct in thinking this? At other times it seems like it's not though, like the recent Sup Holmes? episode and stuff like that.

Also, in one of your interviews you said that once you started to work at Gearbox you realized a lot of the stuff that you would talk about was more or less a "lesser of two evils" thing, and I was curious if you had some examples? They always wanted to touch upon the man behind the story, but never really delve into "why he's the guy for the job" in the interviews, which was what fascinated me (I mean, you used to be so adamant about games needing to take themselves seriously, so Borderlands 2? Weird combo).

Overall though, I think you did a FANTASTIC job and I loved loved loved LOVED Borderlands 2 (275 hours played!) and can't wait to see what you've done with DLC2. Now as for a Borderlands 2 question.. We're getting into spoiler territory.

After the BNK3R fight there's a.. loss. This has been something that's wracked my brain for a while, so I gotta ask. When this loss occurred, why didn't the New-U stations take care of it? There's a theory of a "lapse" of protection but I don't wanna spoil details for those who haven't beaten the game yet. Or, is it New-U stations aren't canon?

Wow, this has been a long-ass rant of incoherence. Welp, if you decide to respond to it, you have my utmost thanks. I miss hearing your oh-so-vocal opinion, but I'm glad that you're doing well at Gearbox. Hopefully after I get done with school I'll be able to do something either there or with Valve. Hell, maybe 343i. Lots of places that are amazing. Thanks for continuing to provide amazing memories and discussions for us for god knows how many years now. You're by far one of my most respected writers, and people in general.

MISTERTORGUE261 karma

You are certainly incorrect. I don't want to forget that part of my career at all -- I enjoyed it very much and it made me the person I am today.

Regarding the New-U thing: that's my fault, but not for the reasons you'd expect. I sincerely believe that if I hadn't added any dialog to the New-U stations (the snarky lines from the Hyperion female voice), then the New-U's wouldn't have felt like an in-world technology -- they would have felt like a meta aspect of the game.

When Aeris dies, you spend, like, a second wondering why Cloud doesn't just use a Phoenix Down on her and then you say "screw it" and move on, because nobody in the story acknowledges that Phoenix Downs even exist and you're pretty sure they're just a gameplay mechanic. If I hadn't added dialog to the New-U stations, I think you-know-who's death would have functioned in much the same way.

MrName138 karma

How much more explosions should we expect in the campaign of carnage?!

MISTERTORGUE313 karma

  3. WHAT IS YOUR GREATEST EXPLOSION?

  4. DO YOU HAVE ANY TIPS FOR GETTING INTO THE EXPLOSION BUSINESS? ARE THERE CERTAIN EXPLOSIONS TO AVOID?

MISTERTORGUE317 karma

  1. VIOLENT

  2. YES

  3. AS SAID EARLIER, YOUR MIND OR THIS ONE TIME I STUCK C4 INTO A CLOWN CAR

  4. AVOID EMP'S -- PEOPLE ACT LIKE THEY'RE FOR REAL EXPLOSIONS BUT THEY JUST BREAK CALCULATORS AND BORING SH*T LIKE THAT IT'S LIKE WHY EVEN BOTHER DON'T WASTE MY TIME JEEZ
