    Even though it is off screen, this video gets me pretty pumped for the next one.

    Borderlands is one of those games that gets you so sucked into the world that it's hard to find something that fills the void once it's over. I guess that's why they have playthroughs 2 and 2.5 :P

    The first game felt like they made the most of what really boiled down to simplistic gameplay (very little by way of skill customisation and so on), so I'll be interested to see if the sequel is as effective if it brings in more features. Whereas there are great games like, say, Mass Effect where there was a lot to be improved upon in the sequel, to me there's not a whole lot in Borderlands that I would change.

    I agree Hula. I feel like the only thing they could really improve upon is the story, but in the first one the story really wasn't what keeps me playing. I'll be happy as long as there is still loot, and millions of guns.

    Never finished. Always got stuck with shitty parties and eventually wandered away. Should finish it.

    I beat it with the Hunter. Will replay to mop up for achievements and to beat DLC (only beat The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned entirely).

    2 should be good.

    The first game was crack for me, I couldn't stop playing it. If this is more of the same, I'm sold. If this is as much of an improvement as the gameplay video makes it look, I guess I'm sold-er.

    I finished my first playthrough and instantly started a NG+ without feeling burnt out in the least. Not to mention the DLC and the few hours to get the ability Achievements for my non-main characters. I could happily do it all again.

    Lilith was my main. I didn't find the other characters as suited to my play style as her.

    I might pick this back up soon. Is it ok to play the DLC? Or should I wait?

    Wait for what? It's been out for ages, in fact there was 75% off sale on steam for it just the other day.

    I have all of the dlc already (GOTY version). Never finished the campaign, so I don't know if I should finish the campaign first, or I could just pick up and play them whenever. That's what I meant to ask.

    Single player's kinda boring. The co-op's definitely where it's at.

    Co-op is exactly the same thing, just with your goof ball friend running around getting you into fights with skags when you're busy changing your weapon. It's a lot more fun to play it with someone else than I expected it to be, sure, but if you intrinsically didn't like the solo campaign I wouldn't think it'd be any better in co-op.

    Re: DLC—they can be a bit of a bitch on your second playthrough because of the level cap and the fact that the enemies all level up to match you. That's a good thing if you like it more challenging, but I personally got more out of it playing the DLC in the middle of the main campaign to give myself a breather from the main storyline.

    I did nothing but play this game for a few months. Played through the main story with a friend and then did all the DLC's by myself. Still gotta finish the last two large arenas in the Moxxi DLC, that shit is boring as hell. Really can't wait for the sequel.

    Moxxi's is boring, slow and too much repetitiveness.

    Loved this game. Didn't buy any of the DLC so hit the level cap part-way through the second playthrough, which kinda sucks. Hate level caps. Still, anyone want to play, gimme a shout and I'll bust out my character for some action.

    I played this game for a month and a half with my friends. Funny story, it was the semester when me and my friend failed it horribly. I wonder why...

    Only bad thing about Moxxi's is if you spend hours on the arenas and die on the last round, you're SOL.

    I kinda wanted Moxxi and Lilith to hook up, though.

    Has anyone actually been able to play this online on the PS3? I bought an official sony blutooth headset and all communication is incredibly laggy and skips most the time. Apparently you can fix it by using a non blutooth headset and making the audio come through the TV, but then some people online have even said that doesn't work. Surely there's got to be a fix though, they couldn't ignore something this big completely surely?

    September 18th in North America.



    2K also announced that fans who pre-order Borderlands 2 from participating retailers will receive access to the Borderlands 2 Premiere Club, allowing them to download the Gearbox Gun Pack, a Golden Key, and the Vault Hunter's Relic. The Gearbox Gun Pack is a collection of unique guns to help players begin their journey on Pandora. The Golden Key is an in-game item used to unlock a rare item in the mysterious Golden Sanctuary Loot Chest found in Borderlands 2. The Vault Hunter’s Relic is an in-game item that boosts players’ gear-hunting fortune while playing solo or teaming up with friends.
