    Happy Borderlands 2 Eve!

    Sadly, my local EB Games isn't having a midnight launch. The one about an hour and a half away is, but not mine. They are opening an hour early tomorrow, so I can see myself dropped off my boy and heading straight there.

    I am surprised this game warrants a midnight launch, to be honest. I've seen that for entire consoles but it's rare for a game. Goes to show the demand for it.

    I am not even sure I'll touch the game much at all until Jamie is able to get his copy.

    Moar phat l00tz for me then.

    It's really up to the individual store I guess. If they feel there's enough of a demand and they want to play an employee to stick around until 1 or 2 then they can. Sadly Saint John wouldn't a good game if it show them in the face with a bazillion guns.

    I forgot to link the official launch trailer:

    Consider it a good thing there isn't a launch party. Imagine how many people you'd want to sucker-punch who are holding the console version...

    Did Steam pony up the Creature Slaughter Dome as a bonus or is it strictly the Premier Club stuff still?

    What exactly is Slaughter Dome? Is it just like the Moxxi DLC from the first game? If so, I don't think I'm in much of a rush to play it.

    Kind of like wave after wave of enemies that could spawn good stuff that you can bring into the main game. There's very little info that I could find quickly and I haven't really checked into it because I want to be surprised.

    To be honest I haven't really read into much of anything with the exception of the characters.

    Because some people may not have seen it yet, but the 'Live Action' Trailer. Yes, I do believe there was no budget for the marketing team.

    I can't find a decent rip, since it's only on TV commercials at the moment.

    Also, I love you guys for holding out for me. Brings a tear to they eyes. *Sniffles* - it's the same type of tear from burning chillies - *sniffles*- oh god it burns... why make me wait and choose between Borderlands 2 and Torchlight 2... uhhh, I'm getting garlic in my eyes too.

    I saw the live-action trailer a few times on TV. My wife said that my eyes get big when it comes on.

    Bwahahaha! I was out at EB Games at 9am on the dot and there were already 12 people in front of me. Within 5 minutes there were 6 more behind me. I overheard the guy at the counter tell some schmuck console gamer that something happened and they don't have enough Premier keys!

    When I got to the counter I asked about it and the guy gave me the scoop but said PC gamers are fine.

    That'll teach you to play a FPS on a fucking console!

    LoL. When I went into pre-order the GS guy said he wished more of his friends would play on the PC, I told him he needed to get different friends. Then we went into how PC is better over the console and such, he was a little shocked to hear that I play nothing but PC games and what sort of rig I have. PC Gaming, it's serious in this house!

    Definitely need to play it with someone else, I keep getting my backside served up to me on a platter.

    And WTF is up with the fact that I can't use the shotgun?

    Posted about the launch here:

    http://techgage.com/news/borderlands_2_is_out_-_but_you_already_knew_that/

    Matt: The fact you find the difficult leads me to believe that the difficulty was amped from the original. There, playing solo was the easiest way to clear through the game (in some ways).

    If you can't equip a shotgun it's likely because it's too high of a level for you.

    Too high level? Really? I see ten year old kids shooting shotguns and a game maker is going to level a shotgun? That's absurd.

    I agree, that's the problem, heh heh. That style of gameplay just doesn't do a whole lot for me, and it's frustrating when you're doing REALLY well and someone dies and it ends things quick.
