Completely agree, I love the way the Badass system works, and frankly, everything feels so much more polished than the original. Good job, Gearbox!

I'm extremely impressed. I'm also a fan of how they took out the weapon proficiencies and made them "universal" with the Badass system, and added shields and health increases.

I don't like the weapons being so easy to use no matter what class you have. I liked having a different experience...

I enjoyed the classes having specializations in weapon types but they kinda messed it up. You were kinda pigeon holed inti using the weapons that class was "supposed" to use.

Why the **** am I still awake.

I know (that post wasn't directed necessarily at Bordrlands itself)! But seriously it sometimes hampers gameplay for single player.

But really though the only time it was a bitch in Borderlands 1 was with rocket launchers. They were ****ing useless if you weren't Brick. Or co-op. If you were a non Rogue without a few points in Gunslinger you couldn't contribute anything as Mordecai in a team until you had a really good Sniper, Scavenger (rare items), Survivor, or Assassin com with a great revolver/repeater. Lilith ran all the fighting, Roland was basically just a medic... The classes were very unbalanced because of the weapon specialties

EDIT: Nope its been out since the 18th in 'Murrica.

It's was released in America Monday, so I'm using a VPN so that Steam thinks I'm based in America, and lets me play it.

Also - is it possible to customise your skin mid-game? In the original you could do it at New-You stations, but I can't seem to find how to do it in the second.

It's not actually a glitch though, it's for convenience.
The boat is put right outside the town, at the end of the little ice lake.

The quest marker even leads you there.


/maybe spoilers, i dunno

I'm like a level ~18 siren now. Anyone around my level on pc that would want to play with little old me tonight? Or I'll play with you if you're underleveled and destroy everything and share the exp with you.

My character's name is "Sucky Sucky $5", so the easy sex will just be the icing on the cake for you.

I'm a level 16 Siren. Me and Jackal UK are hooking up for a game around 17:00 GMT if you want to join us?

Yeah, I'll join. I can only play for about 2 hours, but quality over quantity. I'll heal the shit out of all y'all.

Yeah, I can only play for about that long myself! I'll actually be on in around 2 hours, but Jackal wont be joining until 17:00ish.

So far I've only dropped Skill Points into the healing from killing enemies in Phaselock skill, and the Increase shield capacity skill.

Sounds good, I'l just wait until I see you get on.

I've done about 8 points in Harmony, enough to heal when you phaselock people and have healing bullets, and now I'm going all the way down Cataclysm and working on just being an elemental badass. And I have a 3% team health regen classmod. So I don't think anyone's gonna die when they play with us

I can't remember what class mod I've got equipped, but I'm got an artifact equipped that increase rare drop rates, so that should come in pretty handy!

Yeah, I've been using that one as well. Haven't been able to justify using any other artifacts when there's that one.

Also, off the topic at hand, here's my favorite screenshot I've taken. I'll not post it because it's huge. And also because there's probably someone who will whine that it's a spoiler, even though it spoils nothing at all. But yeah, funny:
