Borderlands 2

Released on September 17, 2012 by 2K Games

Developed by Gearbox Software

The Ultimate Vault Hunter’s Upgrade lets you get the most out of the Borderlands 2 experience.
Gearbox released an image of Gaige the new Mecromancer class for Borderlands 2 as she appears in game. The Mecromancer will finally be released October 16th for anyone that pre-ordered Borderlands 2.

Gearbox just released the first in game echo log for Gaige:

Gearbox has been talking about the Mecromancer for sometime and as such I am really looking forward to trying her out. I think I am a bit more interested in her class than the other in game classes I haven't tried yet.

When she drops will you give her a shot or are you more interested in your current character? Maybe another character you haven't tried thus far?

Who Doesn't Like a good sequel to an amazing story ?

If you havnt played borderlands original you have missed out on the back story of DAHL and will never know who Atlas Steel was D: comment on what was your favourite part of the original BORDERLANDS
I think I have finally hit a good note with my Gunzerker. My strategy is to hit every side quest before I continue the main quest line. This means I get some great guns from the missions but I also get other loot as well. For instance, I just completed a quest line called "Eternal Flame" where these cultists worship Lilith, the Siren from Borderlands 1. It's a fun, messed up and quirky quest and by the time you finish it you get an amazing shield. The shield has a fairly high armor rating but it has an awesome ability in that when it depletes it creates 4-6 massive fire explosions around you. It took a few times to remind me "oh right, this is a good thing that is... Read All

The one benefit to playing Borderlands 2 on the PS3 is split-screen multi-player with friends. Tonight one of my friends came over and we played a few hours together. He went Gunzerker and I went Commando. It was a good pairing but it took me a bit to get the hang of Axton. Was used to run and gunning with Salvador so it took me a bit to get used to dropping a turret and staying behind it. Axton's skill tree isn't my cup of tea, but I found one path that was interesting.

As we were playing it went like this: See a group of bad guys, I drop the turret and he pops into Zerk mode and runs in. Clean up. It broke down a few times when we were not working together but overall... Read All
My First 5 Hours with Borderlands 2

Picked up Borderlands 2 today and started making my way through Pandora after Handsome Jack. My character is Salvador, the Gunzerker as I was most interested in playing him from the other new classes. I have quite a few thoughts about Borderlands 2 and am not really sure where to start. From a high level my first 5 hours were very fun with a few nit picks.

Stuff I Loved

I really like that the game has settings other than desert. So far the game has all been snow for me, but I have heard it has quite a few new settings beyond the snowy mountains. The art style of Borderlands 2 seems pretty much like the first game but much much more... Read All

It was the night before Borderlands 2 launch and all through Pandora... Not a creature was stirring except for a bad-ass Skag wearing a Fedora! 50 bazillion guns were hung by the chimney with care in hopes that would use them to light up the morning air!

@panickedthumb and I were nestled all snug in our cots as visions of loot danced in our XBox(1). @panickedthumb as a Commando and I ask a Gunzerker had just settled our Borderlands game saves for a long nights overture.

When out in the tundra there rose such a clatter I sprang from my cot to see what was the matter. Away to the window I flew like a flash and blew it open with a shotty that does fire and acid damage...... Read All
