The first round of details from Game Informer are now available.
WHY ARE WE ALL SCREAMING!!!!!!?????
THERE IS NO DRUMMER BETTER THAN NEIL PEART
I have dingle-berries that play drums better than Neil Peart does.
DID YOU TOUCH MY DRUM SET? I KNOW YOU TOUCHED MY DRUM SET!
@mcnablejr LMAO That was my first thought.
CAPS LOCK IS CRUISE CONTROL FOR COOL!
LOL @ Anchorman reference. OT, I can't wait to play this game. I let the first one pass me by. I heard it was awesome though.
MORE SCOOTER!!!! "Yeah, she may not be the prettiest girl but she'll put out on the first date!"
Borderlands was enjoyable to me (eventually), but the story was pretty dumb. Surely they can do better with that.
yeah it should of been called boringlands. very lame and boring story.
story was the major letdown in the first game, i hope the developers take note and improve the narrative a lot.
Glad that there will be a 4 person car, there's nothing more soul destroying than when you are in co-op with a couple of other people and they get in a car and you have to drive on your lonesome
4-person car? that reminds me of this scene http://www.youtube.com/watc...
WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOO...Im drunk
can you transfer.. your characters and stats over level guns?..... That would sell me on this
I sincerely doubt it. If you read the list, one of the items mentioned is "Apparently there won’t be any old weapons", another is "Skill tree will be similar to the first game". So if old guns wont be returning, its quite impossible to transfer your old guns to the new game. And the skill tree will be 'similar' to the first game, so not exactly the same, but similar. Which makes transferring your skills quite impossible as well.
Beautifully said. Eloquent and succinct. (I realised as I wrote this that you can't tell if I'm being sarcastic, I'm not.) FUCK YES!!
i spent 150-200hrs into borderlands and that was playing alone at my own pace and with a bad story improve the story which they have said they learned a lot from and dlc have better stories more weapons and more varied weapons. If possible let us create our own weapons than upload to borderlands servers to sell to other users for in game currency In game currency should mean something i had unlimited amount of money and nothing to buy?????A MAJOR NO NO skill tree needs to improve maybe an overhaul and a better world with living breathing cities and NPC can't wait hopefully fall 2012
The first Borderlands was the shizniddle-bam-shnitzzle.
I really enjoyed the first game too. Was I the only one who got a glitch that your ammo never ran out? It happened to me when I was helping the old man gets his liquor. I feel bad that I took advantage of it and passed the game with infinity ammo for all my weapons : (
I don't think it really matters.i would rarely ever run out of ammo so it was like had Infinite to
True - I hope the fix that in part 2 and make ammo scarce. Also some of the levels you could basically just run through them and collect what ever you got to collect with out fighting anything or any one. I ran through the final level leading to the vault with out dieing. The need to fix that as well.
no glitch it was a perk like refilling health did ammo as well
I got a pistol that never ran out of ammo.
Borderlands is the shizgazizzle-boombang-bazingaz izzlefoofizzle. *high fives*
"Vault Hunters from the first game will be NPCs" SEE...it's not set 200 years later, what was the point of new characters, they could of given us more of a choice in what character we picked by adding onto the exsisting characters or let us imported them from our old save data. Were going to have characters with roughly the same classes as the old characters....I think it was pretty pointless to be honest.
Especialy since they are given the new characters better "Interacting dialogue for players" when they could added better character development for the old characters. I mean Salvador is basicaly Brick... It's like what happened with L4D2, you already had 4 amazing charatcers and they give us bland red necks for the sequel and then decide to kill Bill off in the old survivors basicaly putting a final nail in the coffin for the old characters to return...I mean they could but without Bill. I want to play as Lilith. If this was set 200 years later for when the Vault opened up again then fair enough but why not let the old Vault hunters go off on new adventures.
you do realize bill's voice actor is dead :P
Gunzerker can dual wield. Sounds pretty much like a new class to me.
Well it appears that the story isn't going to be about the vault then. Unless there is some time traveling in the game or something. Also please explain how Salvador is anything like Brick. Just because they have the same basic look doesn't mean they have the same abilities. Could Brick dual wield weapons? Also this way we can learn more about the characters from the past game since they'll be NPCs that we can talk to.
Brick's fists are his weapon so yes he can dual wield... but I know what you mean.
To anyone who's whining saying How is he like Brick Brick couldn't dual wield What just because Brick couldn't dual wield he's NOTHING like him....one new improvment that's all he has... but at the end of the day he still will play like Brick Just because the new guy can dual wield it's a new class....ok then ¬¬ If Brick was in this game I bet he could dual wield since it's a new feature.
Lol no. So just because ONE ability has been mentioned for Salvador means that you know EVERYTHING about him? Brick was about fists and rockets. This guy doesn't use either. He is the ONLY character in the game that can dual wield weapons. That isn't even his action skill. You seem to think you know a lot about the game. How about you tell me how many other playable characters there are and what abilities they have. Otherwise stop stating things as if they are fact. Gearbox would create a new character if he was just going to be a copy/paste of another.
LOL ....Mate please stop coming off sounding like a prick because your just going to make yourself look like a troll trying to start arguments. Well you could be, maybe that's how you've went down to two bubbles. "You seem to think you know a lot about the game. How about you tell me how many other playable characters there are and what abilities they have. Otherwise stop stating things as if they are fact. Gearbox would create a new character if he was just going to be a copy/paste of another. " Never said I did know everything but it's pretty obvious that it's brick with a load of new improvments. IF brick was in this game THAT'S how he would be Class wise, that would be HIS improvment Now Shut up troll and go away
How about more varied environments, eh?
Im just gonna wait for the GOTY/Complete/Ultimate edition in 2013.
Have you also planned what retirement home you want to move into in 50 odd years?
Yah im geeting a nice place on mon olympus. I hope it gives me a nice view of mars's landscape.
Hope the skills are a bit more varied instead of just +10% more damage or whatever.
awesome... ive bought and sold the first 1 like 2 times... i think im gonna have to buy it again. I think id have better ideas then what i read so far... but thats just me, and i have better ideas : P as most would think of course so im not being cocky lol
Can't wait but I thought part 2 was going to be called borderworlds
Yeah I heard that title was trademarked as well. Oh well, the gunzerker sounds rad though!
Borderworlds will be the MMO. Count on it.
I played this game for about 4 hours and felt it was very overrated. I was killing variations of the same damn dogs 90% of the time. It was monotonous.
you didnt get very far in 4 hours did you.
I got to driving around in a dune buggy and visiting other places.
Well then you should know than u kill humanoid like creatures.
You kill humaniod like creatures before you fight anything else, they then show up again in about the 4th quest. After about an hours worth of play you then come across Rakk.
"I got to driving around in a dune buggy and visiting other places." .....which you do in the first 20 minutes. Try again.
Got 112 hours played on the first game(Steam). I'm indeed looking forward to the sequel. And that's only one playthrough including all DLC.
I was hoping the skill tree would have alot more leveling.
That is my only disappointment reading this news blurb. I was hoping the skill tree would have at least a little more depth. Oh well. Everything else sounds great and I am really looking forward to this! Been grinding through another play through on BL1 for the last months. awesome!
I'm hoping they fix up the menus a bit.
give me a maliwan so i can light some BITC*ES on fire! bring back the russian voiced marcus or a homosexual esque german.
I can finaly dual weild handguns.... :D
Sounds like more guns is in order.
can only imagine the dev team producer "GUYS great news, we're not putting the old guns in BL2.......so i need a bazillion new one" devs 0-o*soft cries*
I thought the first game was awesome. Can't wait to see more of this game.
Sounds good so far, can't wait for more details, maybe even some screens
Dual Wield Sniper Rifles anyone?
You going to hold a scope to each eye?
Haha I like all the disagrees to a simple joke.... Who said anything about scopes?
- Co-op will probably be 4 players - Vehicles will have variety - Salvador: Gunzerker, can dual-wield with any weapon - Vault Hunters from the first game will be NPCs - Custom decals/*enhancements for weapons* These are the ones that I'm most happy about. Of course I love what I read so far, but I'm mostly curious about the "enhancements for weapons" and dual wield idea. Also very curious of what part the original 4 will play. No matter, I can already tell this game is going to be amazing. Just hoping to see some gameplay (or any sort of game representation) sometime soon!
They need to add an awesome Multiplayer dueling mode that is more akin to a traditional fps system. This way after gearing up and getting skills you can hop into some team deathmatch or something and check out how they fair against other players. I loved dueling my friends but I want to fight against the world a bit too.
