And there's not really many things you can do. In BL1, you could at least quit and reload a few times, and buy something decent from a vending machine. In BL2, vending machines are worthless. I can't even imagine why they're still in the game other than to sell your loot, but that leaves you with money you can't use except to buy ammo that costs more as you go up in level (WTF?????)

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=102166716

Got that from a random vending machine I was passing by. Purchased an orange grenade from another machine, too.

Almost 2 years ago, charging $60.00 for a PC game was nearly a scandal on most gaming websites.

I doubt if a single member of this site paid over $50 for BL2.

I am really curious what a random vending machine was doing with what is essentially a level 36 version of a Class mod that drops off Terramorphous or Vermivorous... You're a lucky guy.

As I said before I think they're just complaining instead of trying to solve their own problem. These are people who probably had no issues with farming for items for days in Diablo but they complain like BL2 should just hand them shit. Other than the perspective it's still technically an ARPG and should play the same way. I didn't always have the best weapons in Diablo and could obliterate everything, sometimes you had to work harder.

As far as the DLC mindset, you're getting like 4 expansions that are all going to be around 10 hours a piece.... thats 40 more hours of game for 30 bucks... I find it hard to complain about that considering it is pretty much equal to an oldschool game expansion except that it is delivered over the course of 6 months or so, big freaking deal.

All I can say is you guys are having bad luck, but it also helps to play the game 4 player instead of solo.

You can almost always find a quest of level to get a decent weapon off of anyway. I've never had any issues. I played a Healing Siren to about 30 or 40 then switched up and am now Catalyst/Motion, and dominate just about anything I come across. It's hard not to when your phaselock is on like a 7 second cooldown at best from talents/relics/class mods and does Fire/Corrosive/Electric/Slag and is a Singularity. Spec yourself better, don't complain that the game has shortcomings because you're playing the class wrong. Every class has different ways of being played. Even my Mechromancer feels very different depending on which tree you go down, Anarchy is definitely interesting, tried it for awhile and you CAN become a serious wrecking ball (As long as you use Shotguns or SMG's at close range so the Negetive bonus to Accuracy doesn't affect you as much). But I've also tried the BFF tree (Definitely the more boring of her 3 trees as it relies completely on the Pet) and am now pretty settled on the Little Big Trouble tree where you melt everything with Electric.

Even one of the guys I play with nightly changed specs and found the Assassin plays entirely different and can do far more massive damage with the knife spec than just straight sniping (Which is what he usually does and did with Mordecai in the first game)

Try different things. Thats what the respec option is for, don't just stagnate and think each class can only be succesful one way.

If you just haven't been lucky and got a decent weapon sorry to hear that, but I don't see how it's possible considering the number of items that drop and quest rewards.

DLC is a 1.3gb download chico. We have to wait for Steam's release schedule.

Valve needs to get with it. Half the time new games are available at midnight or 3am, the other half of the time I'm off work waiting to play some DLC and can't.

Combined with their massive amounts if disconnects it seems like every Monday or Tuesday night anymore. It's getting really old. Especially with a game like Borderlands 2 when you got 4 people on farming Terramorphous and he dies and you lose an entire swatch of loot because everyone gets disconnected from Steam. It's very bothersome.

I'm waiting for NHL13: Lockout Edition, where you can watch the ice melt at your choice of NHL arenas. The GM mode is amazing. You have meetings to schedule meetings that will discuss when you can have a meeting about when you can negotiate with the players.

AWESOME!

I hope they implement a new skill stick feature for controlling the pen to sign new deals that will be shot down by the players association anyway.

I hate this fucking lockout I want to see my Caps play.

I just thought DOTA2 was underwhelming compared to LoL. Graphically better? Sure. But I like the heroes in LoL more, they feel less generic as weird as that sounds. DOTA seems stuck trying to mimic the Warcraft heroes the original were based on without access to the actual characters.

I've been in DOTA2 beta for awhile and barely touch it because I think LoL is better.

Kind of hard to understand this viewpoint. LoL's game mechanics are a watered-down version of DotA's. Not sure why you wouldn't want to play the source material rather than a low-budget (which has since become big-budget) knock-off.

It's hard to understand that I think the heroes available in DOTA2 are shit and I don't like them compared to the characters I've grown to enjoy in LoL? I don't see where that is complicated.

I played a lot of GTA4 but I still like Vice City the best of all. I want another GTA set in the 80's or even the 70's. Preferably the 80's though. Vice City definitely had the best feel to it overall. That game sucked me in till I had finished it the second day playing it so much. And I loved it.

Haven't quite finished play through 2 on my Siren only because I spent the last 24 hours smashing through play through 1 on a mechromancer. Hit 32 and finished just in time for bed last night. So for me it's perfect timing plenty of time to finish play through 2 on the Siren and maybe even get the mechromancer close.

This game is taking up all my free time...

I love the video that is currently on IGN personally. "Treyarch Confused by Black Ops 2 Engine Criticism"

Even their lead director is a moron. His philosophy apparently is "Well it runs at 60fps and that is what you guys want, we can still make the engine pretty"

The reality is they've only ever worked with someone elses engine and can't f'ing design their own. And even the COD fanboys are starting to notice nothing ever changes. Same textures, same death animations, rehashes of old maps, recycled sounds. It's no wonder they make so much profit on the damn games they barely change a damn thing.

News Comments > Borderlands 2 Expansion Revealed?
32. Re: Borderlands 2 Expansion Revealed? Oct 10, 2012, 23:11 Trevellian
 
If you played Borderlands 1 at all you would be full aware that unlike MOST DLC for most games, Gearbox has a tendancy to do DLC the correct way. Tons of content for 10 bucks. I put well over 200 hours into Borderlands 1 with ONE character. I've already put close to 200 hours into Borderlands 2 and they have not even released expansions yet. They are not nickle and diming anyone.

What you're trying to tell nin and everyone else here, is that the 3 or 4 DLC's you get for 30 bucks (Which will have HOURS upon HOURS of content in them) are not the same as buying a 30 dollar expansion 6 months later. Which is completely untrue at this point in time.

I would much rather pay the 30 bucks, and have that same content spread out for this game over the next 6 months (The 3 or 4 DLC's will be spread out between now and June) Rather than have to wait that entire 6 months, for one large expansion.

It's virtually the same thing only a different release method to the old expansions... for THIS title. This is the correct way to do DLC.

I understand your dislike for the common method of DLC, and if that is your case I implore you to talk about Nickle and Diming people to Capcom. Capcom is the definition of Nickle and Dime DLC. That is not what Gearbox is doing with their DLC. And you're a blatent idiot if you think otherwise.

Capcom, Activision, EA, you could pick any of these companies to complain about Nickle and Diming DLC... but you chose to pick the One company and game that does it the correct way and actually works on, and releases quality content for months after the game is released to come on here and bitch about. That is just down right retarded.

I loved the original X-Coms and played them for years. That being said, this game is still great and as far as I am concerned lives up to what I expected out of a modern X-com game. Some of you are really stretching to find reasons to dislike this.

Don't worry it's Fox.
They'll only air 11 episodes out of the 13 they film, and they'll play it opposite Sunday Football. Then decide it's a failure and cancel it. It's standard operating procedure for them.

It's cool that even though they went the new game route, they'll still give everyone the new game for the price of a subscription.

If this had been EA, they would have said "Fuck you. Buy the new game."

Creston

Correction. If this had been EA they would have released the same exact game with some new outfits and the characters names changed for the same premium price as the previous years game.

I don't see this FIFA 13 incident getting old anytime soon. I find it too amusing to make fun of EA for it.

Yep...I think some people are still in denial. I was hoping they'd go back to being the old Bioware again...but they pretty much cannot do that at this point.

Sure they can, it's called leave and start a new company from scratch. Is it tough? Sure. But then you at least get to do what you want.
