    Can't believe there isn't a thread on this yet.

    Borderlands

    From the Borderlands facebook page:

    Borderlands 2 is in development, featuring new characters, skills, environments, enemies, weapons and more!

    For more details, hit up the latest issue of Game Informer Magazine (Borderlands 2 is the cover story) then come and see the game for yourself at Gamescom 2011 (8/17 - 8/21) and PAX Prime (8/26 - 8/28).


    Anyone else excited? :D

    My brother and I had our most intense bonding period over the first game.

    One of my few complaints is that the game felt a tad repetitive about 2/3 in.

    The only time I got a little annoyed with it was when me and my stepbrother hit the max level cap with one DLC left.

    I hope it's a clean game upon release and not buggy as hell like the first one.

    That said, I did enjoy Borderlands and hopefully I can gather 3 other players in one room for some good ol' coop.

    I remember playing the first one with my ex to see who would get to Level 50 first, we would call in sick at work and spend days just playing that game, lol....

    I really need to fix my Xbox, I'm missing out on L.A Noire and want to have it ready in time for Borderlands 2 !

    I hope they find a way to stretch out the singleplayer experience a bit in 2. On the one hand, there's the extra challenge of starting a second (or third, or fourth...) playthrough. On the other hand, you can only level up so much, even with all of the DLC and level cap increases. I'm on my second playthrough (including running through all of the DLC missions on my first playthrough), and without even having finished the ONE DLC I've started on this playthrough (General Knox ftw), I'm already at level 57. I can't imagine I'll be able to get through much of the other DLCs before hitting the 61 cap.

    I read that the original 4 will not be playable. You will only go to them for missions. This is okay, but I'll miss my Lilith. Double Anarchy, SMG class mod, ammo regen, and that sweet, sweet ass.

    The Gun Peddlers Of Pandora - Features - www.GameInformer.com

    Gun information, nothing really new, apart from there will be weapons made by the bandits.

    EDIT: Disregard that, there is some awesome shit in there.

    Tediore manufactures Pandora&#8217;s equivalent to a disposable Bic lighter. Once you&#8217;re done unloading a clip full of ammunition from this brand&#8217;s rifles, it can be thrown like a grenade. The more ammunition you have left in the clip when thrown, the more powerful the explosion will be. After it self-destructs, the weapon &#8220;reloads&#8221; by constructing a new firearm out of your character&#8217;s Digistruct module. Using Tediore weapons allows for interesting strategic decisions - do you utilize every bullet while taking out your enemies, or do you leave half of them in the clip for a bigger blast?

    I'm actually kinda iffy on the Tediore thing. I can see the tactical usefulness, but it could also be really annoying if you can't just reload the damned thing. If I can just use it as a normal, reloadable weapon, but also choose to lob it like a grenade when the need arises, cool. If I have to fire it until it's empty and use it as a grenade before I can reload the damned thing, then I don't see it as something I'm likely to use.

    This intrigues me, though:

    " They’re not the most organized or mechanically inclined group, so their selection will be notably ramshackle. Instead of a scope, a Bandit sniper rifle might feature a glass bottle. Instead of iron sights, a screw."

    Yeah I'm wondering how the grenade clip will work too... But I think I'd be okay either way with them. If nothing else, I'm glad that they're adding more, if they made the same game again I might not play it (okay I would :lol: but I'm excited to play with all the new goodies!).

    I'm betting the glass bottle scopes will be a little fish-eye, which is awesome.
