No offense but are they just running out of ideas at this point?

Blacktric1190d ago (Edited 1190d ago )

They ran out of ideas when they were quarter way through with the development of Borderlands 2.

Jeez how disappointing...he looks like a Badass Psycho

He doesn't look like a vault hunter at all, I feel like no work has went into this at all. Plus melee...it's a game about guns, having a melee character seems pointless in my opinion.

Christopher1190d ago (Edited 1190d ago )

A melee character was one of the most requested character types... And he'll still be relying on his guns most of the game. Otherwise they'd have to implement a whole new weapon set just for this character, and that's not going to happen.

I'm happy about this. Something different and something to get me back into the game.

A Brick clone. Awesome. I hope Im wrong because while it sounded great on paper he was the least fun class from the first game imo.

rextraordinaire1190d ago (Edited 1190d ago )

Yeah ok cool.

I'll try it once they increase the level cap, if they ever do.

-edit- OH WAIT! They will! :) Should have dome some research before entering "cynical jaded entitled gamer" mode. Haha

Kane221190d ago

they are increasing the level cap by 11. but its $5 but free for season pass people. april 2nd is the date

rextraordinaire1190d ago

Yeah just got that from the internets.

Well good news! :D

Finally some ways to make my siren -even- stronger!

PooEgg1190d ago

$5 for an additional 11 level cap????? Only that???? Please, tell me I am misunderstanding.

Everytime I hear something like this the gamer in me dies just a little bit more.

The original Borderlands was great, and most of the DLC really added to the game, so gamers supported Borderlands, bought the game and the DLC, and made it so Gearbox could safely release Borderland 2... and so it becomes Borderlands 2 is just a big money grab. Makes used games seem a lot more appealing I have to say.

antz11041190d ago

^ @PooEgg you paid for the level cap increase in the first one too, it was released with the General Knoxx DLC.

But please, go on and continue to die a little inside lol.

elda1190d ago (Edited 1190d ago )

Charging 5 dollars for raising the level cap only eleven levels is a major rip off....at first people payed 60 dollars plus tax for this game then for extra content people payed 30 extra dollars for the season pass or 10 dollars each dlc...that can be almost 100 dollars to play a game with a leveling up limatation that you have to wait months for to be raised & then to be charged for a limited level raise is a complete rip off!...I remember the days when you played a game in it involved level up at different levels you could do this to at least a leveling up to 99 or better.

Thatlalala1189d ago

Yeah but it came with DLC!! New actual content, not just a level cap raise like this is. Overrated game anyways.

I will call him Krieger

Moncole1190d ago

Krieg is wearing a mask and you never seen him with Kreiger and they are both crazy.

LAWSON721190d ago (Edited 1190d ago )

Come on can we have anything free this is $10 and lv cap is $5. It feels like even if I buy a game I am subpar owner who only has access to a little bit of the game.

Christopher1190d ago

REally? For a game with the amount of options it has and replayability, I don't think your complain is all that reasonable. Sure, some companies nickle and dime us with DLC, but this isn't on that side, IMHO.

rextraordinaire1190d ago

True that.

Even the basic, no DLC version of Borderlands 2 offers a whole lot of content, and gives more quality play time than many, many other retail games within the same price range.

ChronoJoe1190d ago

Level cap upgrades are nickle and diming if it's not incorporated into DLC. It costs them nothing to allow us to increase our level, so why should we have to pay for that?

Christopher1190d ago (Edited 1190d ago )

Because it's to help pay for the other features also coming at that time. Some of it free. The level cap increase isn't the only thing included in the patch/DLC.

"The cap will add 11 new levels (bringing the total to 61) and will be free to Season Pass holders (or $4.99 for everyone else).

Along with the level raise, Gearbox will also be adding a new weapon tier: Pearlescent. Pearlescent weapons were previously seen in the original Borderlands and will be the rarest loot in Borderlands 2.

On April 2nd, Gearbox will also offer a new mode called Ultimate Vault Hunter’s Mode as a free update to all players regardless of whether they’ve purchased the level cap raise. The mode will be available to anyone who has beaten True Vault Hunter Mode and reached level 50 and will have enemies scaled to the highest level in your party."

Kinda disappointed :/ Looks like your typical run-of-the mill badass psycho. Shame, Gaige was awesome :(
