    until
    Borderlands 2 - Saturday July 30th, 2016 @6:30pm EST (11:30pm GMT) After much requests and inquiries from members, Borderlands 2 (a game that has quickly become a community favorite on Xbox) is being being showcased as an event on Saturday July 30th, 2016 at 6:30pm EST with host Slade Bogaty. We'll be taking down raid bosses, exploring the in-game world, completing hard-to-do missions together, and acquiring kick-ass loot all along the way! Please contact Slade Bogaty for questions and other inquiries regarding the event. Event Summary: Time: Saturday July 30th, 2016 - @6:30pm EST Host: Slade Bogaty (Gamertag: Slade Bogaty)
  2. Borderlands: the pre-sequel was announced a few days ago and I have to say i'm very excited. As a read the comments of the only released gameplay footage I see a lot of people don't agree, and i see why. The game looks identical to borderlands 2 and most of the gameplay looks like the previous title as well, But you have to take this game as fan service. Its just to tie over fans of the franchise until they release borderlands 3. If they ever do. I personally am going to treat it like Batman Arkaham : origins. because there very similar. There both a tie over and an origin story. people who just tagged along for borderlands 2 probably wont get this title but fans of the original and 2 this will be a must buy. I just hope it wont be a flop. please check out my youtube where I will be doing a full walkthrough of the game once it is released https://www.youtube.com/user/NickBoormanTV
  3. Borderlands 2 Game of the year edition is 60% off on Steam summer sale thats 17,99€ 44,99€ Saving in total 33,41€ . i never had such horrible expirience on Borderlands 2 when i was playing it on my old PS3 console whit such horrible Frame rates and graphics it was literally unplayable for me on PS3 and it was much harder to find groups to play whit on PS3 after awhile when i bought few months when Borderlands 2 when it was released, this is a game that is notorious for having weapons whit such high recoil it would actually improve your aiming skills. Do you guys recommend buying this game at its current state after improvements on patches and are the DLC's of this game any good?
  4. Let me start by saying that I love the borderlands games, it is a series near and dear to my heart. But that does not make Borderlands 2 perfect, and after playing through the game about 18 times now, I feel it necessary to address some of its problems. I believe that nothing can truly improve without looking to and fixing its faults, and I don’t want Gearbox Software to get complacent and believe that there’s nothing to improve on, because there is. If you yourself are a borderlands fan and are probably waiting to tear me up, at least have the decency to hear me out, after that you can argue or agree as much as you’d like. The bulk of my issues with Borderlands 2 have to do with its story so I’m going to go over the gameplay issues and get it out of the way. I think Borderlands 2 did an excellent job on improving the gameplay, the UI is greatly improved, the token system in my opinion is better than the previous challenge system, and the skill tees are extended so you don’t completely fill out 2 trees by the end of the first game. Not to mention all the other parts put in that make it worthy of being titled a sequel, however there are issues. Firstly there is no system for replaying Echo’s. In the first game you could listen to your communications through a menu, in Borderlands 2 there is no option, and it is face-tearingly aggravating to try to understand important exposition from some person or other in the middle of an epic gun fight knowing that you won’t be hearing it again anytime soon. Also, why is it that when I play Borderlands 1 for a few hours I will have acquired at least 3 legendaries but in Borderlands 2 I must farm like a mad man to get a single one? It seems counter productive to say that the loot in Borderlands 2 is bigger and better and then to seemingly lower the drop rates. And speaking of loot, while I’m glad there seems to be a good plethora of legendaries, uniques, and seraph weapons you can EVENTUALLY acquire; it seems that you have less space with which to store all of it. In Borderlands 1 I think the max backpack space you could get was 45 with god knows how much bank space with the underdome DLC, whereas in borderlands 2 the max backpack space is 39 after you’ve acquired enough eridium to mutate every bandit from Pandora to the edge of existence. And don’t argue that this is a way to force you to use a preferred gun and properly manage your space, because you shouldn’t have to! I should not have to spend a week farming terramorphous to get him to finally drop a legendary shield and then find out that I have to make a decision to get rid of my legendary I spent 6 hours of farming to get, or the legendary that only took me 5 and a half hours to get. That is not fun! Speaking of loot, I prompt you to not buy ultimate vault hunter mode. For one it's stupidly hard, most likely forcing you to play with other people or get squished, and for what it says about higher loot drop rates, it’s like the difference of killing an ultimate boss 10 times or 7 times, and that’s if you can manage 7 since his health is four times larger and regenerates. So that would be all my gripes about the gameplay, now let me explain the biggest issue I have with borderlands 2, the story. I understand that Anthony Burch was brought in to write the story and people might say I should cut him some slack for his first game story write, but to be honest that’s all the more reason to bring to light the issues, you can’t just tell him his work is perfect because he’ll never improve as a writer. My issues with the story all revolve around the main villain Handsome Jack. Whom I have heard from several people is the greatest villain ever, but after listening to his relentless calls, I wish to debunk this assumption. Firstly I would like you to find anyone you know that has played borderlands 2 and ask them to describe Jacks personality. I can practically guarantee that the first words out of their mouth will be either ‘asshole’ or something that that entails. Besides being a douche what else do we really know about Jack as a person? From what some side missions can tell us he was a code monkey that apparently figured out where the first vault was (somehow) and used Angel to get the first vault hunters to open it. But past that nothing else is seriously touched on, who was his wife that apparently disappeared? How the hell did he find out where the vault was buried? Why does he want to conquer Pandora in the first place? What’s his favorite color? I can go on. I’m annoyed because every opportunity to truly get to know Jack and try to figure out this character the game seems to just try to give you another reason to hate him. And that’s a huge thing, literally everything that happens in the game can be traced back to ‘jack is evil, kill jack’ which is odd because personally I don’t need much convincing to kill someone in Borderlands, for all I know nine toes from the first game might have been a philanthropist. I once heard somewhere that the best villains are the ones that make sense. Andrew Ryan may have been going off the deep end but at least he tried to justify his actions reasonably. I can see that they were trying to have a conflict of your character by having Jack make you think that you were just another bandit, but I can’t take him seriously because it’s hard to try to question my own morality when the guy trying to convince me has killed a puppy. I think the whole ‘you think you’re different from bandits but you’re not’ angle would have worked better if perhaps Jack actually did improve the planet, if he didn’t just murder and oppress all over the place, and maybe did good on his promise to civilize the borderlands in some places. Then I might actually feel conflicted in what I’m doing. Instead I try not to listen to him at all because his master plan appears to be to kill me by running up my minutes. Seriously, I lost count of how many damn times he calls you up just to be an asshole at you, but I’m pretty sure it’s over forty times. I didn’t think the head of a galaxy-wide super corporation could be so bored he’d have to call up his enemies every two minutes, needy much? Aside from Jack, there are other characters that I’m sad didn’t get any fleshing out. For instance why kill off Angel? I thought it would have been interesting if the vault hunters took her in and must teach her how to survive on this harsh world she had been sheltered from her whole life, and maybe talk with her about what her siren powers specifically are, or have her try to atone for tricking the original vault hunters, I thought it would have led to interesting character development. But no, got to killer her off to have another reason to hate Jack, add to the list that includes, killed Helena Pierce, killed Bloodwing, killed bricks puppy, threw overlook citizens into a meat grinder, tried to kill you the new vault hunters, fooled you into lowering sanctuaries shields, and whatever else I didn’t put down. Another character was the Sheriff, who is a weak character starting out for not even having a name. Aside form being a massive bitch we have no idea of who this person is, I’d like to know her backstory. An announcement says she came to Pandora for action but that’s pretty damn vague. Maybe she grew up in a desert town and was inspired by the local sheriff’s deeds but as she grew up her vision of justice was twisted which led to her tyrannical rule of Lynchwood, and maybe there’s an event where deputy winger has a confrontation with the Sheriff and tries to convince her that what she’s doing isn’t justice, at least something. As a matter of fact, why was she Jacks girlfriend? Did they meet at a ‘being an asshole’ convention? If you’re going to put in characters that have a relation to people in the story, you have to give them context. Otherwise they feel pointless. That’s not to say that the story is all bad, I’ll admit that I did laugh at some of the dialogue and the character interactions, I thought they were very well done, so Burch has that going for him. It’s just that sometimes I feel he tries too hard; he puts too much emphasis on the communications and forgets that the game has the ability to speak for itself. Rather than trying to tell us that the stakes are raised, show us that the stakes are raised. Let us see the oppression of the people of Pandora, hell I didn’t see a single Hyperion officer in overlook and yet they told me that the town was severely oppressed and under control of Hyperion. Rather than having Echo’s that record the slag experiments in the preserve, show us the mutations that occur, let us witness firsthand the reason we’re fighting Hyperion. This leads to probably the second biggest problem with the story, we’re only told of things happening, were not often shown. I’ll admit the section where Hyperion loaders tear up the bloodshot ramparts and brutally slaughter the bandits was a great scene that really made me feel that I was at war with Hyperion, it made me feel they had a presence (although I was kind of looking forward to a boss fight with flank steak) this scene and the scene where Hyperion bombards sanctuary and liquefied bystanders (although they weren’t moving at all, the idiots) were both great scenes where I felt Hyperion was a threat. The problem is everything past that I pretty much have to take peoples word for. For example its said that Wilhelm destroyed new haven and nearly killed the first vault hunters, something I find very hard to believe considering the first vault hunters basically defeated a shoggoth at the end of Borderlands 1 and I killed Wilhelm in borderlands 2 in less than two minutes. Or when we’re told that overlook citizens are thrown in the grinder, but we didn’t see that, if no one said anything we’d probably just think that’s where they dispose of their unwanted raspberry jam. And aside form killing Roland, I don’t really recall seeing jack specifically do any of theses evil things. Maybe there’s some jerk doing it in a Hyperion disguise and Jack is just taking credit, we don’t truly know. Anyone who’s played farcry 3 will know that the first thing you really see Vaas do is kill some people then kill your friend, it takes Jack halfway through the game before we see him kill anybody, and even then it was from behind their back, coward. I’ve already written around five pages so let me try to wrap up with some things. On the first game you had the motivation of the vault and you felt like you were progressing when you collected all the pieces of the vault key, but in borderlands it has the same goal just pushed farther and farther way. I’m talking about the vault key, you’re practically looking for it for 80% of the main story and no matter at what lengths you go to you never get it. Even the Angel mountain raid gets you diddily squat, its annoying that all that sacrifice was for practically nothing. Even more annoying still is that after that Mordecai tells you that there’s this place where the location of the new vault, the key, and jack are all stored, we didn’t go there first why? And finally for a game that spent the whole game convincing you to kill this one guy and that this one guy is the biggest villain ever, the final boss fight was piss easy. Jack tipped like a cow and the warrior itself, while cool looking, has a crit spot on its chest the place you’d fire anyway. And despite Lilith CONSTANTLY reminding you that ‘the lava is rising!” you pretty much ever notice anything. And after all that hardship you finally get to kill Jack, of course I was thinking there’d be a scene where jack is swallowed by the warrior or dragged off into the sunset by cannibals or something that’s fitting for this awful example of humanity to die, but instead you get to shoot him once……What? Well you can also let Lilith kill him with this weird energy burn thing but that’s still sort of anti-climactic for how much the game was hyping up killing Jack. And the aftermath of this victory is presented via pictures in the credits. I thought it would have been nice if I could see people cheering me when I returned to sanctuary, congratulating me in the game or see a jack statue tipped over by scooter in-game, but alright. I know that seems like a minor thing but I still feel the need to mention it. So that’s all I really have to say about Borderlands 2, I love the game, and for that I feel I need to point out its faults so it can grow and evolve and learn from its mistakes. Thank you for hearing me out for this long. If you want to argue about any point I made here or add anything I missed please leave a comment. Thank you.

  8. Hey Y'all, I just started playing borderslands. BobbyLOD is my PSN, hit me up if you are looking to co-op.
  9. I like Dahl, they're fast, strong, and practical, like a solider.
  10. So I just downloaded Borderlands 2 on ps3 since it was free for playstation plus. I never played one and had a chance to play around with it for a short bit and it seems to be a damn fun game from first impressions. Just wondering if anyone could give me some noob advice that would be wonderful. Also is any class capable of going through solo because I'm going to assume online on ps3 is somewhat dead now. Thanks in advance!! Also if you play Borderlands 2 for ps3 feel free to add me on psn mine is Shady23.
  11. Recently I've seen the announcement for the "Tales of the borderlands" trailer, and I'm not really sure how I feel about it. On one hand telltale are good story writers that could valuably add to the borderlands mythos, on the other hand it could be an irrelevant story about wannabee vault hunters and then some stuff about handsome jack. Considering he whole point of the story in Borderlands 2 was to kill jack and be done with it, gearbox seems to want to bring him up again. What do you guys think about this? watch the video and leave a comment.
  12. In the Angryjoeshow review of Borderlands 2, he mentions something about fanmade characters. I won't draw out this topic any further, so lets get into it. Create a possible character for borderlands 3. You must put name, backstory, skills(main and trees) and what it looks like. For me it would be Malon the Wizard. His backstory is that he is a wizard (obviously) and he got banished from his cult for murdering innocent people in the far reaches of Pandora, and he would like to join it again by ridding the galaxy of Evil thing (maybe hyperion or something). His skill would be to levitate and it would heal players yet damage enemies. One tree called greed would be all about making yourself overpowered (which ruins the point of the character all together)the main overpowered skill is where you can leech health off of anything, even characters. The next tree is alliance which would be all about healing,giving buffs to guns and characters. The main overpowered skill is where you and youre friends become invincible for a few seconds. Third skill tree is justice which is all about damaging. The main overpowered skill is where you push enemies away and then drag them back to the place where you used the skill (might take some practice). He would look very wizardy, a bit like the wizards from the tiny tina dlc. Create your own or rate others.

  14. Borderlands is a fun, hilarious, addicting and well made game, but there are limitations and stuff that they can improve on. The main things I see problems or stuff to improve on are the following. 1)money is almost useless 2)customization is limited and sometimes a bit frustrating 3) guns sometimes feel overpowered or underpowered. 4) the chose to get rid of low level rares With these problems I have some solutions/features 1) to solve money issue and add more customization reduce the response fee and add gun customization and reuse old wepons where guns can disassembled from the frame into barrels, triggered /grips, stacks, scopes/sights and the middle frame (the peace that identifies the gun and collected and put on other guns within the same class (no plasma casting on assault rifles). And each part you have will be the same level as the original gun (or a set level if dropped from a boss or mob) it will be p witch can be upgraded for a price and be different rarities (so you can collect parts as well as guns) as well when you make a new weapon It will cost to assemble and even can buy new parts all the

Each part you have will be the same level as the original gun it came off of(or a set level if dropped from a boss or mob) and can change the level of the new gun. It will be possible to level the parts up for a fee and each part will have different states bases on level, rarity and manufacturer if there is different level parts on the gun it will take a weighted factor of all parts to make a new level gun. different parts could have effects on them i.e. barrels can have E tech . It will cost to assemble a new gun and parts and parts can be sold, bought and even found (like the mission hungry like the sakg but for only blue or higher rarities). Also there will have to be a separate holding area for these parts for holding so they don't get mixed in with the complete weapons and a menu or area will be made to combine them. 2)For character customization it is frustrating have present skins so how about finding colours and and patterns (like face paint or the mechro's Dahl predator yellow and black camo on her vest jacket) there can be a couple of colour selections controlling different parts I'm thinking about three or four setting aside patterns this will solve character customization frustration and limitation. Also can there be a optional third (like elder scrolls) person mode it kinda sucks to not see your custom character you may have grinded to get. And make loot drops personal to each player (so you can get rid of duping glitchs as well), and be low drop rates to increase (if not gotten) every time a player defeats a boss/mob (so that people don't have to do taramorphes 100 or more times not knowing when they will get a head let alone the one they want) and have it reset the odds after it has bin obtained. If any one has any others charges or issues to be changed or question please feel free to comment I love borderland and I want to see this game get even better and have longer lasting drive to play besides leveling up and replaying the game on a higher level.
  16. Anyone out there want to put together a Borderlands 2 community
  17. I'm pretty sure we all know of Yoteslaya's death that happened a few weeks ago. For those that don't know him, he was a figurehead and considered in many people's hearts as a great player in both Borderland's 2 and CoD Zombies. He died in a drunk driving accident that took him and two other's lives away. He had two sons and a wife that he left behind. (RIP Yote) As sad at it is, a video was recently posted on his channel. It basically states that his kids and Yote's close friends will be continuing the legacy and tribute through his channel. It was uploaded today in fact. The video almost brought me to tears seeing the fact that Matthew and Dawson (His kid's) are continuing his legacy. Live on Yote! The link : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LnDp7BvywMY
