Claptrap from Gearbox Software’s Borderlands honors the memory of a true fan.
This morning, we received an email from a Destructoid fan named Carlo who shared a story about his late friend Michael John Mamaril.
Last month, Michael passed away due to cancer at the young age of 22. Both were huge Borderlands fans, so Carlo thought a great way to honor his buddy’s memory would be to shoot Gearbox Software an email asking for a short eulogy to be read by the game’s smart-mouthed robot mascot Claptrap.
Not only did Gearbox comply with the request, it also promised to insert Michael into the upcoming Borderlands 2 as an NPC.
