Keep an eye open in Sanctuary, because you might just see a friendly face willing to offer his help named Michael Mamaril. Accepting a friend’s request, the developers of Borderlands 2 chose to honor the memory of a late fan with a eulogy, and by placing a character with his likeness in their game. Sadly, Michael Mamaril passed away, a victim of cancer at the young age of 22. It’s a somber start to an otherwise raucous action-RPG, so try to give a moment’s thought to Mamaril’s family. We’re wishing them all the best.
