Hi there strangers!

So i have the first borderlands on steam, played through it once as soldier, clocked 37h and had fun.

But i found some flaws that bothered me. The scenaries were all desert, the driving awkward and comparing guns felt like doing math. Other things also.

With this said, would you recommend me the second game, you think it´s as fun as the first and worth 40€? Quite an amount of money for a digital game by my standards.

Is it better than the first?

Thanks in advance.

Great game in Co-op, pretty good in single player too. You can get a steam key here for £20. This is a legit site. I have used it many times as have other members here.

Hi just wondering which card to get that will run physx on max phys settings on borderlands 2 with eyefinity setup without any slowdown and decent enough framerates, planning to run along side 6990 dont want to spend a whole lot also heard you can hinder performance if going for a too higher card unless your using it as your primary card.

You should be looking for a GT 640 at least. 384 CUDA Cores will handle with Borderlands 2 PhysX pretty well.

A GTS 450 will run the Medium PhysX at decent frame rates but, will be struggling at High.

As said before, the GT 240 is an absolutely NO go for Borderlands 2 Medium or High PhysX.
I use a GTS 250 myself and I have to turn PhysX to Low when I play Co-Op. I can use it only in Single-Player.

Earlier this month Randy Pitchford revealed that Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep would not be the last piece of downloadable content released for Borderlands 2.

Today during its PAX Australia panel, Gearbox Software announced the first details for the game’s fifth expansion pack, as well as outlining free feature updates on the way.

The new DLC pack, the Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2, will add 11 extra levels to the current player cap, and a new Digistruct Peak Challenge. The pack will also allow players to "over level" the game to make content more difficult for advanced players. No specific release date was given, but Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford confirmed that the pack will be out sometime before October 31 this year. The pack will not be included in the current season pass, and will cost $5. No previous DLC will be required to play.

A planned free update to Borderlands 2 is also set to increase the maximum amount of ammo players can carry, enhance the total number of available bank slots, and boost inventory capacity. All upgrades can be purchased using Eridium, the in-game upgrade resource.

The team also revealed upcoming DLC pack, T.K Baha’s Bloody Harvest. The content will include throwbacks to The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned DLC released for the original Borderlands. The pack will conclude with a boss battle against pumpkin creature, Jacques O’Lantern.

Pitchford confirmed that while some DLC has been in development since Borderlands 2 went on sale, beyond today's announcement, the team is aiming to release one or two more packs in the future.

Yes. Because continuing to offer new content and support for a game that has millions of players begging for new content and support... is definitely milking it.

ugh

Relax, it's more the fact that this content won't be included in the season pass. What's the point of a season pass if it doesn't include a big chunk of the dlc content released for the game.

Why would the Season Pass include content that was approved after the Season Pass was established?
The Season Pass was based around 4 DLC packages. 2K and Gearbox developed those, and say a huge demand for even more content for the game, and decided to continue to develop content.

If the Season Pass was to include this stuff as well, the original price (based around 4 DLC packs) wouldn't fit.

The real problem is they're charging $5 for something that takes a trivial amount of effort to do.

Personally, I only find the game fun with new characters. Playthrough 2 and the higher levels... that's where I feel the game turns into a grind.

Yep, but PT1 enemies being push overs and the level 31 cap don't help it .. especially the latter.
