Who's playing it?


My buddy and I stayed up until 3am playing coop after it dropped last night (my GF was pissed because I wouldn't come to bed). Holy shit, the first game was good, but this one is ****ing awesome! I like how it's much more focused on humor this time around as well.

The only thing I don't care for is the menu system, specifically the inventory screen. Why the hell won't it let me look at what I have equipped and what's in my inventory at the same time? Maybe it's just annoying for me since I'm playing it on PC and not console, which the menu screen was clearly designed for. Otherwise, trading and group management is much easier. It's incredibly easy to group up, where it was a bit of a hassle before.

So what'd you guys roll? So far, I think I really I'm really liking the Gunzerker. Good class to ease you back into it.

Man, I hate staggered releases. I got lucky that the drop in the US was east coast time, so I it was available to play at 9 over here on the west coast.

Does that make you feel better?

Man, I'm loving it so far, playingas Maya 'cos I figure everyone's going Zer0, but I'll be swapping over to Mechromancer when it becomes available.

One thing I am worried about is that I'm experiencing framerate drops like nobodies business when shit gets busy. Here's my rig:

3.0 GHz processor
16Gb RAM
3Gb AMD Radeon 7950

Surely my system should smash it?

Maybe a driver issue? I ran it last nigh with a 2.4Ghz CoreDuo, 2Gb RAM, and a 1Gb 540GT card and Vista . It was perfectly smooth on medium. I was really surprised.

Got the game today and only got to play for about half an hour. Fucking classes taking up all my Borderlands time. I'm playing as Zero because I loved Mordecai in BL1. It's too early to really judge, but it's fun so far.

Does anyone else sometimes wish they would give you slightly fewer weapons? It feels like I just barely get a sweet new gun and I'm already replacing it. It will probably slow down as I get higher in level, but that did annoy me a little bit in the first one.

Looks like my brother's buying it on Steam which means I'll have access to it soon. (I'm pitching in a bit) Wasn't crazy excited about it or anything but cool anyway.

That's what I did, but I think I dialled down a few other options just to make sure. I'll crank 'em back up and see what happens. If it's stuttering and what have you I'm going to be pissed.

Awesome game is awesome. Playing as Zer0 currently level 12 gonna go for stealth and melee skill tree since that one seems the most badass. The last skill on the right is to deploy another hologram and add time to your invisibilty after killing an enemy with melee which can be repeated as many times as there are enemies to kill. Combine that with the skill that makes all your holograms explode and deal shock damage after coming out of stealth and I'll be taking out entire enemy camps without ever being seen.

I played a bit of Coop last night with Jackal UK - it was a little stuttery but that's probably because we're both playing through VPN's in order to actually be able to play it!

I forgot about that after I exited and was wondering why youtube was slow as shit. Once I sorted the fps dump from too much shit going on with FULL GRAPHICS OVERLOAD problem it ran ok apart from the occasional lag jump here and there. Should be sweet on friday when I can play it normally.

SO MUCH LAG ON CONSOLE CO-OP WITH A BUNCH OF CRAP ON THE SCREEN. Holy crap. I can't even believe it. Game like literally froze-chug with 8 bullymongs on screen.... How did I ever play on consoles.

Also I officially cannot aim with a controller anymore

The ones me and my friend got from Hammerlock lasted us until level 12 or so.

I'm still only a level 3 on my real game on my computer.... I need to play it but I'm just gonna wait till I'm done with class today because otherwise I'lljust start playing and skip it. Definitely playing until 4 when I get home though

Is it just me or are sniper rifles really scarce this go round?

Got it yesterday and my cousin and I co-op'd for 6.5 hours.

I'm a level 12 Siren atm and I gotta say, this game is so much better than the first already.

Really love so many things about it. The new minimap, the bigger variation in gun aesthetics, dat tediore exploding reloading throwing thing, the new enemies with more advanced AI, etc.

So good.

Damn. I'm glad I got it for PC then. I'm only just above the minimum requirements and I can run it maxed @ 1080p. I'm really impressed, I thought I was going to have to play it on low settings like I have to do with Tribes Ascend.

**** you guys!

Edit: Why does everyone like Zero? He looks queer. It's like Mordecai in the first game; for some reason everyone loved to play the character with a gimp mask.

So good.

Yes. My biggest gripe with the first game was constantly having to open the menu to check the map, this makes everything flow better. I'm Zer0, level 12 right now, and loving his skillz.

Hasn't come out here yet.

I was the most badass Siren of all time in the first game but they seem to have weakened this one quite a bit. I'll probably still go Siren (because my friend is picking Zer0) but I hope she's not shit

Maya and Phase lock are actually ridiculously useful. They did some major balancing between classes this time. Maya and Zer0 also work super well together.

Boss fight? Phase lock boss for a few seconds, wipe out some distracting minions while your high crit (as Zer0) friend does work on the boss. When phase lock is up, friend uses Zer0s hologram to distract and deal damage while he back stabs a few guys and Maya goes to town on boss. Since she's faster she can keep him moving until she can phase lock again.

Rinse and repeat. Ridiculously powerful combo right there.

But the balancing is what makes it so good this time around. You don't have one supremely OP class dominating everything like in Borderlands1 (I'm looking at you Lilith ). They all mesh very well and are all capable of contributing equally.

ExDementia: Yeah PC is definitely the way to go. No questions. I didn't even consider it on console . Noe if only Naughty Dog would put Uncharted on the PC.... Dat engine on a great gpu

Who cares what he looks like. How often do you see your own character? It's about his specialty. That's what everyone wants.

Because its finally a useful assassin class? Mordecai was my favorite in Borderlands 1 for two reasons:
1) Dropping an enemey from hundreds if yards away and watching his head explode never gets old
2) Trespass was the most useful skill EVER for combat. Seriously. Bullets ignore 100% of shields? Yes please.

Everything else about the class aside from the revolver specialties though was a joke. Now the people who like stealth and assassin character types actually have a useful skill tree to build off of instead of two or three perks.Sure a lot of people are using him because he looks cool but some of us are actually glad we have a useful long range and stealth/meelee tree that's able to contribute to the team.
