Gonna need a new comp or im gonna have to play this on my crappy 360 q.q because Buying that DLC hurts the wallet

>Shitty dubstep music
>Still advertising lots of weapons
Oh look Gearbox is still doing false advertising. Can't wait to pirate it and it be exactly like the last one. Bet story goes just as badly.

I'm quite interested in this, as I really did enjoy the first one. Even though the graphics aren't top notch, they definitely appeal to me (I love the randomization on guns [a la Diablo] as well).

Zero 09-18-2012 12:24 AM

Necro-bump!


Game just came out (IE Midnight Release)


Anyone going to be playing this besides myself?

buta 09-18-2012 01:35 AM

Have been playing, but then it hit me that I didn't get the Premiere Club items and have been searching for how to do it since.

Nihil679 09-18-2012 06:00 AM

They should have given you a code I heard. Check receipt?

I'll be grabbing my order after classes today. Probably won't be playing h4rdc0r3 until Gaige the Mechromancer comes out though.

Jon 09-18-2012 07:19 AM

Yeah, I'll be getting it today. It definitely sucks for the people who have to wait for the 21st though, and I feel bad for 'em.

I'm probably going to start off with Axton or Zer0, not sure yet.

Naps 09-18-2012 07:36 AM

so much colorful compared to the first game

the script is hilarious

First thoughts after staying up til 6AM playing it.

Pretty good. If you didn't like the first one, it has indeed improved on it, but it is still pretty similar. If you liked the first one, it has improved on it, but is still pretty similar.

The story is interesting bringing back cameos from the first game (as well as telling you who kicked the bucket... no spoilers. but then, i honestly don't remember the person who kicked the bucket.)

There seems to be a lot more gun modifiers, but I'm not sure I like half of them. I've noticed an increase in guns that use more ammo per shot. And being a quite into ammo conservation, THIS SUCKS.

Walking over ammo and money to pick up is cool. As well as the fact that your vehicle can now pick stuff up for you.

On the note of vehicles, they've added in rag doll effects so you can't just ram something and take it for miles, something I felt was enjoyable. Now they just go flying and probably don't die.

Skill tree has more skills in it, but I looked through each of them and can't say I like many of my choices. But that's just cause I had a playstyle in the first one that I liked and was kinda hoping it carried over. But nope.

They added in a reward system for the achievements you get (ie. do 50000 burn damage or kill 100 skags) where you can get marginal bonuses to all characters on your account. It's pretty neat, I think. But whatever you do for one char will carry over to all of them so you want some sort of general bonuses that aren't specific to one char (ie. pumping melee damage if it shows up just for your zer0). Of course, if you plan on only maining one char, then it's fine.

I feel as if the inventory UI got worse though. Along with the skill tree UI. The fact that they force you to switch between inventory and equipped items or the three skill branches kinda annoys me. I wanna see it all in one view.

Oh yeah, there's lots of character customization now. If you played the first game and they found a steam save, they'll give you some skins to play with. You get other skins from random places.

And I'm still only half awake so I can't think of other stuff to say.

OH DID I MENTION I HAVE NO MONEY THANKS TO SLOT MACHINES HUEHUE

Iono, I ordered mine from GMG and it says I have the premier club in the DLC, but in game, it says it's not downloaded without any option to download it. I read some forum post where some mod said he'd look into it cause a lotta other people are having the same problem.

Guess I just have to wait.

Zer0 is pretty fun, but I hope you like smacking things in the face.

Claptrap funny.

LauraMix 09-18-2012 03:06 PM




Theres one part of the game that remind me of Ninja Turtles :shock:

buta 09-19-2012 02:18 AM

This is why I'm broke.

Yeah, but you don't really need to go the melee route. The action skill is good if you pick up B0re, which shows the critical hit spots on enemies; you could activate it and then end it and then snipe the spots.

Anyway, I didn't get the chance to pick it up yesterday because they were out of stock; I should be able to get it today.

I would, but my current PC is not strong enough. :py25:

buta 09-19-2012 01:37 PM

Also, not sure if anyone else has heard, but for those who play the PC version, you can easily hack in the number of golden keys in your account cause they keep it in a random .ini file. I'm scared to do it though if there are repercussions. Also, I assume it is entirely plausible to hack the amount of money you have. Which I am also hesitant to do. Just throwing that out there.

Every time I'm back in Sanctuary, I BROKE. One day I'll hit the jackpot and see what happens...

That's true. But it seems like his melee abilities are what they pushed in all of the trailers and stuff, so I felt like I kinda had to go that route. :P

Not to mention the last skill in the 3rd tree looks pretty awesome. It's just gonna take a while to get there.

Of course, I still snipe, just didn't put points into that side of the tree. I think sniping and shotgun-ing are plausible/effective no matter what class you go, just from the utility and the pure damage output.

Zero 09-19-2012 01:41 PM

So far I'm only level 8. Trying to make a Shotgun/Melee build for Zer0, but not really sure what to invest into. Crits is an obvious answer, so the sniping tree looks pretty fine.

buta 09-19-2012 03:31 PM

So. I killed the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles yesterday. Today I killed Snow White.

WTF

I wonder what other references they made. Aside from the Minecraft easter egg.
