    Did they just say 96.5% more wub wub? *clicks pre-order button*

    Borderlands was a good game; it just lacked variety. This game seems to fix all of that by spicing things up with 4 player co-op, more characters, monsters, skills, and guns. They weren't lying about the guns, I didn't see the same gun twice throughout the whole trailer.

    One of the best non realistic FPS games you can get!
    Definitely will pause playing Skyrim (whit mods) to play this one.

    Who picks the music? Nobody likes dubstep.

    Disclaimer: If you like dubstep you are not a person.

    Nobody takes dubstep seriously, that's why it's perfect for borderlands. The whole game is satire.

    Lolwat. There was 4-player co-op in the first game. The trailer also doesn't make it clear whether or not the classes from the first game will be available, or if it'll just be the 4 new classes introduced that'll be playable (in which case the number of playable characters is the same).

    Seriously, if you didn't play the game in co-op, you missed some cool things, because they upped both the difficulty and the gun drops with more players. Unless you're talking about split-screen on the console, because **** that ****. Vertical split is literally the worst thing possible.

    ...and just when you thought the violence overfloats our screens, you get one more of these, now cartooned. Next thing will be the Muppets figures chasing each other with bazookas, bfg-s and alike...damn...

    Loved this game for the story-mode Co-op. I really wish more games would come out like that. Imagine playing Mass Effect 1 to 3 in story mode co-op. The biggest challenge would be deciding who gets to be Shepard.

    When diablo 3 comes out I'm gonna call in sick...for the year. Then next year I'll pick borderlands up and call in sick for that year...
    Oh and dubstep is awesome. If that makes me not a person I'm cool with that.
  14. I got the goty edition on amazon a week ago for 6.99. I'm hooked to the game. The only thing laking is the story.

    I wasn't talking about the consoles; I assume the 4-play co-op will be possible on PC, no?

    Still, it is a widely known fact Borderlands got boring pretty quickly because of repetitive enemies and areas.

    Hopefully to a degree addressed by no. 2
  17. There must be one marketing consultant group that is helping all these game developers create trailers... Because they're all starting to look different from the past, but all the new ones are starting to look the same. I'm not complaining, they look nice and are entertaining to watch but the Dubstep in every trailer is kind of getting unoriginal. Epic trailer here though, I never played the first Borderlands, maybe I'll check this one out when it's on sale on Steam, if it's on Steam.

    Dubstep? *Pre-Orders*
  19. You obviously didn't play this game. The mobs were nowhere near as repeatative as other games. There were tons of boss mobs that spiced things up. And the DLCs were the best I have ever seen.
    I rank Borderlands as one, if not THE top FPS shooter for the past ten years.

    I can't wait for the next installment. I have been watching for it ever since I finished the first one 10 times.

  20. Borderlands 2 is a million times better than skyrim.
