Borderlands 2 Mechromancer DLC Today

Gearbox's Randy Pitchford tweets that the Mechromancer DLC for Borderlands 2 will be released today, a week earlier than planned. Here's word, which does not explain why: "So - here's the surprise, Mechromancer for Borderlands 2 is ready about a week earlier than I promised. Oct 9, all platforms. Woo!" Thanks GameSpot.

PT1 is cool, though it could use more variety in drops, rather than just seeing the same 25 guns over and over again, but they went overboard with TVHM, imo. I know that it was just broken in BL1, since the DLC overleved you and made it a joke, but making every single encounter a "if you get hit three times you're dead" isn't really the way to go either, I think. I've yet to see a single enemy that doesn't just blow away my shields in one hit. :\

TVHM seems even more aimed at coop play. I managed to do a full playthough of it with Axton, but the turrets were doing the majority of the work (I went for the double turrets). 2 turrets + rocket upgrade = lots of dead stuff. But even then I died a lot. That's not to say I didn't get some good weapons and stuff, because I did, but your last line really is true, enemies just blow through you like butter. There's no way I'd try doing pretty much any of the other classes in TVHM solo.

I mean, I guess I'm with you in that I got my money's worth from it, but it the classes were more varied, and they'd balanced it better for solo, I could have kept playing. Sadly, neither are true, so I'll be moving on.
