In 2009, Gearbox Software released Borderlands, a first-person shooter with RPG elements like experience points, level ups, skill points, and plentiful side-quests. With an abundance of junkyards, deserts, and punk bandits, the game gives off a very post-apocalyptic feel, even if it isn't actually set after a civilization-shattering disaster. The ambitious game scored favorably among critics, but gamers themselves were quite divided on the title. Some players enjoyed the team-based gameplay and stat-building elements, while others lamented the lack of story or character development.
The characters are well-designed, and show a lot of personality during their introduction at the beginning of the game, but have zero dialogue or interaction with NPCs. That's why it's difficult to say anything about Lilith, the game's only playable female character - she can turn invisible, move fast, and cause a shockwave.
Beyond that, the only thing left to be said is that her design is packing quite a bit of sex appeal.
Official screenshots released to promote the game feature Lilith bending over and moving her backside rather close to the camera - perhaps proof that Gearbox intended for her lithe frame to stimulate interest in the title.
Regardless, Lilith is sexy even without posing or shoving her hindquarters into the camera frame:
Character depth proved to be a rather insignificant point to gamers, as the game sold well enough to justify a cascade of downloadable content. The second downloadable episode for Borderlands, Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot, centers around arena battles and a sadistic widow named Moxxi. It is easy to ignore the mortality rate of Moxxi's husbands and focus instead on her extremely attractive design:
An overwhelming majority of Moxxi imagery depicts her from the waist up, for two obvious reasons. Pictures showing any other view of Moxxi are rare indeed.
Mad Moxxi spends most of her time standing atop a tall tower, dancing around a pole, adopting various sexy poses, and occasionally shaking her chest. She also makes a cameo appearance in the third DLC extension for Borderlands, "The Secret Armory of General Knoxx":
Borderlands' creative director has stated that the decision to produce a sequel to Borderlands "seems like a no-brainer." Here's hoping that Borderlands 2 becomes a reality, and introduces a few more female characters - perhaps with a little bit more depth this time around.
