Borderlands 2: Mechromancer DLC - The Nerd Cabinet

The Nerd Cabinet's Marshall Burrows gives his views on his first taste of Gaige and Deathtrap (Borderlands 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Gaige is an amazing character to play within the level 11 experience I have had after playing and beating the game through once on my Maya character before-hand (level 35).

Her deathtrap is such a useful tool and something that just obliterates anything that is alive close to you (wondering how it'll hold up later on, though). Anarchy is somewhat hard to maintain when the X button (I use a game-pad) is used to open containers and pretty much is the heavy interaction button along with reload. It sucks losing stacks when you don't mean to :P. I can see that if I used the keyboard and mouse combo it wouldn't be so hard since I'm pretty sure "R" is set up only for re-loading and other buttons are bound elsewhere, but...oh well :P

Along with the damage upgrade and the accuracy downgrade that comes with Anarchy, the skill is on a double-edged sword (of course that being the point) and I just start to let Deathtrap slaughter everything or try to get into melee range at a certain point.

I think Gaige may be my new favorite character, I just wish they could do more as they have done with Gaige to the other classes :)...heck I don't know, I just like the pro/con deviation I guess, and being able to have an AI minion :D

At least they all have something different about them, which over time I'll be playing them all, but for the moment my main character is Gaige then Maya :)

The anarchy perk is pretty cool, but the aiming sucks but a weapon that explodes when you reload helps a lot.
