At the Gearbox PAX panel Randy Pitchford too park in a unusual ceremony. Michael and Melanie Refuerzo got married at the end of Gearbox’s PAX panel in front of fans and even some cosplayers on stage.
Melanie said shortly after the ceremony.
“When we got together and started playing games together I had it on my console. So I went to go cook dinner and he popped on my Xbox and went ‘okay, I’ll just play this.'”
“I just started playing it right there and was like ‘hey, this game’s pretty awesome.’ And we just started playing a co-op game together splitscreen,”
Michael and Melanie both credit Borderlands to the existence of their relationship.
“That’s when I found out that she was a gamer,” Michael laughed. “She has a higher Gamerscore than me. So I obviously had to trump that somehow.”
Melanie had some pretty kick ass vows too.
“I couldn’t have found a better person for me, especially since you came up with this crazy plan for our wedding and shared our passion for gaming,” Melanie said during her wedding vows. “I pledge to be faithful, patient and supportive always. I promise to love and respect you. You’re the Roland to my Lilith and there’s nobody I’d rather spend my life with.”
This is a lovely example of how gaming can truly bring people together. We wish Michael and Melanie the best of luck.
