‘BioShock’s’ Big Daddy found in ‘Borderlands 2′

Borderlands 2 is rife with interesting Easters eggs that, if you’re a well-rounded gamer, will make you smile from ear to ear once discovered. The most recent discovery should make BioShock fans as giddy as a Little Sister.

Youtube user SquishyMoobs (a fine handle, if I do say so myself) recently delved into the game’s first bit of DLC, “Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s Booty.” While plundering the rich dunes, a pair of enemies called “Mr. Bubbles” and “Lil Sis” were found, which is a clear reference to the 2007 release of BioShock. If you have fond memories of the Big Daddies, you should watch the below video from Borderlands 2.

Yeah, that’s pretty great.
