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

that's awesome.

I really hope there's another armory DLC. And I hope as a callback Gearbox leaves in a floor glitch to not set off the timer .

I really gotta give it to Gearbox though, they really did listen to the fans for the second one. Pretty much every change asked for they included. Ability to pass weapons between characters, minimap, mmersion into the game, better AI, an in game trading system...

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...
#83
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.

Are some people actually playing it through steam already? Isn't it still locked for everyone?

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.

Semi-early game spoilers in dis post, yo

Quote by Ticket48
Spoiler:

Right about here, in the quote:


My cousin and I ran into this as well.
After getting Claptrap to his boat we went back to finish up the sidequests in the area, and when we came back we had to fight Flynt again and the boat was gone.

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.

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:

Let's get some debate up in this bitch - Look at Handsome Jack - it looks like he's wearing a mask. It seems like there are 3 fasteners (one on his chin, one on each side of his face), and the skin tone in the centre of his face is notable different to the skin visible around the edge.

Who do we think Handsome Jack really is?

EDIT:

Just sent you a friend request on Steam Vad

EDIT 2: Brainfart, I've already got you. *facepalm*

I must sux at finding people on steam. I tried searcing for both electroacoustics and Anthrax357m and steam says no players found :/

And I'm not sure who Jack could be. I wish I paid more attention to the story in BL1, but now that I've played 2, I don't think I could ever go back.

On the community page, scroll down, about half way down on the right there's an "Add a Friend" box - that seems to work better than the one at the top for me.

I'm not sure who he could be, but I'm convinced there's a twist waiting there!

There was a story in BL1? All I remember is explosions and midgets being decapitated by phase-blasts.

Also, UK/EU'ers, tell me your VPN secrets


Google Private Tunnel (it's not filthy!) - you have to sign up, but it's free. Download it, and run it - it should default to somewhere in the US, and you just sign in to connect.

Once you're connected, launch Steam, and it'll think you're in America and unlock the game for you.

I don't see why it would to be honest - with the numbers of people playing Borderlands 2, I doubt they'll notice - even if they do have a problem with it.

I've paid for the game, I'm gonna play it.

Also, Jackal did it whith Darksiders 2 a few weeks back, he's still knocking around, so i'm guessing it's relatively unlikely that anything'll happen.

Failing that, it unlocks tomorrow anyway for the EU doesn't it?

As long as you connect to the VPN through Private Tunnel before connecting to Steam, everything functions exactly as normal. I was playing online with JackalUK the other night.

EDIT:

I'll be home and on Steam in around an hour, send me a message if you get stuck

Can't wait to play today. Hopefully I won't have to redo the firehawk quests... Dunno if I'll just wait until after work though.

Gonna keep building up my Bloodshed tree. This is going to be an interesting build.

So at first I started a Gunzerker with my buddy who I played OG Borderlands with, then I rolled a Commando for when he can't play and I think I like it much better. I'm trying to avoid Maya and Zer0 for now since that seems to be everyone's favorite.

They're both level 10/11. I would be much further in the game if I just stuck with one
