This comic gets at a little problem I have in games now.... Must loot every corpse... Must collect every item. I haven't played many hours of Skyrim but mu chest in Breezehome is already quite full. In Borderlands 2 even though I have full ammo I still open each case, locker and ammo container... Then again Eridium can be anywhere.

How much do you hoard in you games? Or do you breeze by corpses and chests with ease?

I'm a huge hoarder in games. One of my complaints about games like Oblivion or Fallout is that I have a limit on how much stuff I can carry. I CAN'T loot every corpse and it kind of bothers me lol.

In Borderlands 2 I always open everything, but that's mainly to look for Eridium rather than ammo.

It's fun when I hit triple Eridium at Moxxi's. All my money down the slots.

The new Pirate DLC seems to introduce another tradable unit too. Wonder how that will work.

Right the Pirates Booty introduces Seraph Crystals. No mention of what they do yet.

How profitable is slots? I've heard you should start playing slots early because it's just going to get more expensive, but I don't want to end up screwing myself out of all my cash.

Slots are not profitable. It is exactly the same as real life gambling your likely to lose 99% of our money. However in return you will end up with lots of eridium. Possibly some guns but that just depends on luck.

Typically I find it to be a good win. Last game with my friends we scored a ton of Eridium and I find that after a 6k slot pull ill walk away with a few blue guns that are better than what I can find in the vending machines.

Perhaps I am lucky or something, I don't know... But I find it to be one of the best uses of in game money. I don't find the vending machines to have that great of gear compared to drops so in the first game I just hoarded it all.

It for sure is a good use of the money because there is nothing else to use it on. But it is not a winning venture. Even if you get a blue gun a lot of the times its a handgun which is usually still worth less then what you paid to spin the slots.

I do get many handguns but I still find it fun. I just wish they had 4 machines, in co-op only two people can get on them at any one time.

Oh yeah, I have serious hoarding issues in every game with an inventory I've played. It really bugs me when I have to leave stuff on the ground due to weight/space issues.

Someone getting super lucky at the slots:
