Borderlands 2 Catch-All

Launch trailer!

I'm so excited! And I just can't hide it!

1:08. Oh my. Oh my a LOT.

The first bump just sells it.

Wait, do we have a BL2 clan for 360? If so, can I get a friend request please?

Also, my Amazon copy shipped last night for delivery tomorrow (for anyone worried about not getting day-of delivery).

I've seen Amazon not send me a notice until late night the day before a game comes out and I still get it on time. They've got a warehouse a state over that gets here quickly, I assume it's like that for most of the country.

Soooo, co-op. Starting sometime tuesday, though probably not until noonish (CST). I'll be available whenever til whenever, looking for people that can dump a lot of hours into this game over the next week. Anyone fitting that criteria want to team up? I'll probably play a gunzerker, not locked in to that though.

Bought the game sunday through GMG, got my key immediately, pre-load went smoothly.

I'm trying to finalize how to co-op this with my kids. I'd need at least two copies for the 360 (I haven't gotten it for 360 yet) since it offers split-screen online support now. Or I could just get two more PC copies from GMG at $38 a pop. Looks like the 360 players haven't updated the GWJ Games doc so I'm unsure what the head count is.

Season pass is for four DLC packs between launch and June 2013, right? Which will be $10 each? I think I'll just hang on to my money and buy them a la carte.

I'm assuming that at least one of the DLC packs is going to be arena garbage that I have no interest in playing. The rest of the DLC I'll be able to get dirt cheap on Steam for way less than the season pass.

I wouldn't be so sure of that. It was unpopular enough last time that I would think they wouldn't do it again... hopefully the GameStop pre-order one is all we see in the arenas. :?

I took the Gamestop pre-order as a sign that they think people want arenas. And, the most common ad I've seen for the game only features arena gameplay.

One thing to keep in mind with this new arena (Creature Slaughter Dome), is that it's not really a part of the main game from what I've gathered. It's more of a tool to level up and get loot which you can then take with you back into the main game.

Also, Adam F (Fletcher?) from Gearbox confirmed over on the neogaf forums that if the host has the CSD content, then everyone in his party can play the content. So anyone on the 360 playlist getting this from Gamestop?

From what I understand, the Creature Slaughter Dome is exclusive content. Other Slaughter Domes (such as Robot Slaughter Domes) are not. So, don't think of it as an entire mode being exclusive so much as just one map for that mode.

To be honest it looks like killing robots will be a lot more interesting than killing creatures anyway.

Huh, I hadn't heard anything about other domes.

Well, I'm taking tomorrow and Wednesday off of work, so I'll be up there, level-wise. I'm actually planning on taking a big nap after work tonight and playing through the night. It's gonna be fun :).

So, according to Lobster, we're looking at a midnight EST Steam release? I can't check the countdown timer.

That's what it looks like. Steam is showing "approximately 12 hours."

That's unusual and awesome. I always love those occasional 12 am EST unlocks.

Never mind.

I've had the product arrive in my hands before Amazon sent me the shipping notice once.

Ok, I have seen something. The gold chest that opens with the gold key for preordering level up with you.

The longer you wait, the better loot you get. So, how long can someone wait?

I'm no good with delayed gratification!

They'll probably raise the level cap with DLC, so you would want to wait until all the DLC has come out before using it IMO. I am sad I won't have it.

It scales with your level, so you only need to wait until you hit the level cap. Personally, I can wait until I hit the level cap, that's easy.

If this is hinting at the ability to play both Lilith and Maya, I am stoked. I'm going to play Maya, because I always play the healer, but my wife was Lilith in BL and isn't a huge fan of Zero in BL2, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Do you just get one or does every character you create get one?

I think from the dev diaries, you just meet the first game characters in the game along the way.

Whoops, my bad, I guess all of the pre-orders get the golden key (yay!). I was thinking the vault hunter's edition was the only one with that key. That edition must have a different key.

From everything I've read, none of the original characters will be playable, but they will actually be a part of the story in BL2. Kind of a bummer...
