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.

I will have to see how it plays in game but based on what I've seen so far it's really disappointing.

Yeah, I'm sure as hell not plonking down 10 bucks for Turret Guy v1.1 (since according to Gearbox, I'm not eligible to receive her for free.)

I've actually gotten quite tired of BL2 already. Not that big a deal, I've played it for 100+ hours, but I never got bored with the original. There's just not enough variety in the guns. Maybe in TVHM the more exotic and varied stuff drops, but I find the difficulty upgrade from PT1 to PT2 this time around to just be too aggravating. I finish PT1, both Jack and the Warrior drop jack shit, so I go into TVHM with my old weaponry, and now suddenly I need two clips out of my sniper rifle just to down a bullymong.

It took me about four hours to make it to sanctuary, losing about 300K in the process (most for ress, but also about 100K to cheese Flynt by just chucking 700 grenades at him, since none of my weapons were doing him fuck all worth of damage).

Yay, made it to Sanctuary. I had 4 golden keys, so opened the chest. Got 4x nothing, of course (well, okay, I did get a decent grenade upgrade) and spent the rest of my money on Moxxi's slots, got some upgrades but nothing really spectacular, so... a clip per character, basically? Ugh. It took like 50 hours to make it to TVHM, and judging by the speed I'm going at now, it'd take me 150 hours to make it through here. I don't think I'm enjoying BL2 enough to put that kind of effort into it.

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. :\
