Default MLP:FiM Mods?

So are any of you Vault Hunters bronies beside me? I am just as excited for Season 3 of the show as I am for BL2! I am hoping that there are some fanmade pony mods that come out with this game like I've seen with Skyrim. Wouldn't that be sick if Gearbox released pony skins or something pony related in game?! We can only wish. Although I beleive I saw a trailer that had Salvador wearing a purple shirt with a dual-horned unicorn on it. Hmm...

Anyway, I plan to use Maya to start and make her Lyra (saw the turquoise hair, first thing I thought). Then I shall attempt to go through the game using just Maliwan weapons to role-play as a magic-casting unicorn. Not sure how difficult that may be but perhaps the Badass Point system will help. Might be a better plan for a second or third game. But in BL1 right now I have one Siren Twilight Sparkle (using just Maliwans), a second Siren Rarity (using what else? Rarities!) and a Big Macintosh Soldier (using combat rifles and shotguns). Ponies rule.

I am confounded.

But to stay on topic... If ponies had to be involved in anyway with BL2 I'd rather it be a super buffed up bandit that wore a pony mask and had a unique weapon of some kind.

This would be a great marketing tool for the game to expand to a huge audience that is waiting for a good game. There are no good MLP games yet and borderlands with a good mod could change all of that. While the OP means an unofficial mod I think, would be nice to see a MLP DLC. Sure some people think they might clash with borderlands but I feel the art style would be a perfect match for bronies. Speaking from a business perspective it is important to capture viable markets to strategically target their demographics, bronies would enjoy an exclusive Gearbox DLC. My Little Pony DLC lets the world know Gearbox is a company that cares.

Uh. No. Gearbox being a company that cares is what lets the world know that they care. That and all of us who tell people that they're a solid company that stands by their fans.

I'd rather keep this game away from being flooded with pony stuff...

No offence...
