Mr. Torgue Does Reddit IAmA, Discusses Explosions and Cats

I’m not typically a fan of the all-caps approach, but something about Mr. Torgue makes it okay. It could be that his portrayal is being handled by Borderlands 2 lead writer Anthony Burch, or it could be such compelling arguments as “IF YOU DON’T BUY TORGUE GUNS, YOU’RE F***ING RETARDED“. Either way, his obsessed, boisterous preaching about explosions, pecs, and testosterone makes for a good time.

Mr. Torgue’s volatile personality was much too large to be confined to twitter. Earlier today, Torgue posted a Reddit IAmA, where fans could ask the arms tycoon whatever they wanted (as long as it was said in all-caps). Burch was also nice enough to answer questions regarding video game writing while out of character as well. You can click here to check out the discussion, it’s absolutely hilarious. The discussion was a nice way to keep people aware that Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage releases tomorrow morning.
