As the old forum will close down soon, below are the archived versions, divided by subsections of the original forum. An index of some more interesting or important pages may be added in the future.
- Gearbox News and Articles
- Gearbox Talk
- Gearbox Community Day
- Aliens: Colonial Marines
- Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel
- Borderlands 2
- Brothers in Arms
- Duke Nukem Forever
- Legacy Gearbox Games
- Games and Tech
- Community Art Gallery
There was also a “subsection” for Tales from the Borderlands, but that just redirects to Telltale Games’ website. I have also allowed myself to exclude the Gearbox Shop and Tech Support sections for reasons hopefully obvious (i.e. they’re not as important - they’re still archived, I just couldn’t be arsed to get the links).
If you have links to specific threads you would like to be included in the list, please post them below.
Also, below is a rant thingy this thread originally began with:
So, as you can read here, the old Gearbox Software forums are shutting down June 30th.
I’m the kind of person who despises seeing histories of communities dying. When I see a dead forum or abandoned fansite, a part of me dies inside. And I do not want anyone to share this feeling.
Which is why, despite being a relative newcomer and not horribly social on this forum, I want to preserve it. Because its’ history, YOUR history deserves it.
There is a webite called the Wayback Machine, available here. It allows you to save a functional image of a webpage with minor, if any, losses. It is run by a non-profit organisation, and archiving the websites costs nothing, only a bit of patience while waiting for the webpage to save.
The forums, old and new, are full of information that everyone should be able to use. Even now people look around to find something from the old days and are unable to find it because of how many hurdles one has to jump over to get it, assuming it’s not gone forever. I urge you to save as much of it as you can: old, creative character builds, gameplay and story discussions, various analyses that may have been lost to broken links and the likes, or if you’re feeling particularly nostalgic, some funny or important threads you were part of or simply wish to immortalize.
Your history is yours to preserve. And the more people help, the more we can save. There are still many holes, pages that have been lost. Help do something about it.
…damn, I sound cheesy when I get in this mood
