My local GameStop is having a 9:00pm EDT release tomorrow. I might have to stop over after work and grab it!

Also, a wheel spinner has decided that I'm going to start as Moze. She was the first to 10 spins. Zane and Fl4K were close, with 9 spins each, and Amara started quick with 3 in a row but only ended up with 7 total.

I'm still playing and enjoying the hell out of a game from 2012. I'll be ok if it's more of the same, with new Vault Hunters and new graphics.

I love the first two games for what they are - I don't need new ground breaking innovation for 3. I hate when games change what made them successful for a sequel.

Yeah, I have one that ricochets. I aim at the ground, or a wall, or any solid object that'll bounce the bullets. It's fantastic! And since mine has slag on it, I don't even need to swap weapons - the Bee boosts the damage of each pellet (8 or 9 pellets) and it's plenty to kill enemies quickly. It hasn't been good on bosses - Tinder Snowflake and Uranus needed my DPUH to kill them. I'm 1 level away from getting a Toothpick that I got on Maya so that'll help destroy the snowman to farm him for a bit.

I read somewhere that a lower level Fibber could still be effective in UVHM as long as you have a Bee that's close to being on-level. I'm level 59 using a 49 slag Fibber and it's still doing work with my 57 Bee shield.

I'm impressed.

So, I shelved Axton and brought Gaige back out. I am playing more defensively with her right now - using a Fibber and Bee combo and shooting from more mid-range distance or around corners and it's working really well. Then, as my stacks add up, I get more aggressive and use a DPUH to wreck up closer.

I'm level 59 right now, and progressing nicely. I met a kind person on Discord who gave/duped a level 63 Sham for me, so I'm just trying to get to that and then I'll go farm Pyro Pete's bar for exp.

I also just bought a new copy of Tales From the Borderlands on eBay that arrived this morning, so I'm going to try and get through that before BL3 launches to get the backstory from that game. Should be a busy week!

I have no clue who I want to play as first. My initial thought was Moze, but her voice actor is just kinda 'meh' to me. It didn't seem to add anything. My next thought was Zane, and then Fl4K. I don't really enjoy kill skills, and I'm not a great sniper.

I haven't looked at the skill tree stuff yet, but a mech with a flamethrower attached seems pretty sweet.

I got Axton into Sanctuary, and opened up the farms for Savage Lee and Boll. I have a level 49 DPUH that I saved from Maya, but I could really use a Fastball grenade from Boll.

I also loaded up Maya in TVHM to try and farm a Sham shield from Bunker, but I'm not having any luck yet. The goal with that will be to get a Sham and pair it with Norfleet from the VIP program on my Gaige to blast the shit out of stuff and progress her a bit. Maybe I'll get lucky tonight!

...and then find a Fastball!

I've taken Axton into UVHM. I'm getting killed a lot, but I am slowly progressing. I'm on my way to fight Flynt, and then get to Sanctuary. I could really use a legendary COM right now, as mine sucks. I'm thinking I might jump back into TVHM to grab a level 50 Pimpernel and Sand Hawk. I don't want to level up too much though and lose the effectiveness on those guns before getting further into UVHM.

I started playing Axton last week. I started with the level 30 boosted character, but have taken him up to level 41 so far. I am about to go save Bloodwing in the Wildlife Preservation area, so I'm progressing nicely. I finally reached the capstone skill to get an extra gun on my turret and add slag to it, so that's a huge help. The lack of crowd control that Maya had is tough, but having the turret to draw aggro is pretty nice.

I haven't had great luck with drops yet - I was able to farm a Veruc and Lyuda pretty quickly, and I'm still using a level 31 DPUH that I got as a world drop when I first started this guy. I'll need some upgrades soon. Maybe the loot midgets in the Doctor's Orders quest can play nice and give me some good stuff.

I did it! I hit level 80 last night! Maya has been a blast to play - Phase Lock is a great skill with all sorts of utility. Playing another character is going to be weird when I can't just pick up an enemy and lock them in place for a few seconds. I didn't have any of good drops getting to the end. I finished my playthrough with a lightning Lyuda, a DPUH, a Baby Maker, and a Grog Nozzle.

I'm stuck deciding between Sal and Axton as my next character. I know Sal just destroys everything in his way, but Axton was the first character I played and got to level 21 or so with him. Maybe I'll get both to 50 and just decide from there!

Don't lie to us. We all know you've played the shit out of the Hannah Montana game!

I got to 76 last night. I went legendary farming at Haderax for a bit, and on my 2nd kill I ended up getting a Double Penetrating Unkempt Harold!! To make it better, it had the matching Torgue grip! Wooo!

I decided to restart my playthrough, and am running through the Commander Lilith DLC again. I'm going to go get a new Sandhawk and Pimpernel soon, too

I hit 75 last night. Haven't had a lot of time to play this week. Damn kids, and starting a new job!

I'm hoping to get there by Sunday night, but we'll see! I'm not sure what's the best exp farm. I tried mutating Varkids in the caustic cavern, but could only ever get one or two to mutate. I was having decent luck in the Arid Nexus Badlands (or whichever one is the old Fyrestone). I'm getting 2 or 3 rabid skags, and the occasional tubby spawn in a quick run.

I got up to level 71.5 yesterday. I ran Gettle and Monkey for a while in hopes for an on-level Lyuda but didn't have any luck. I did get a tubby spiderant in the area past those guys though - it dropped a legendary Nurse mod, which seems useless on a solo Maya. A Cat or Siren would've been much more useful for me.

I'm hoping to get a few hours of play in tonight. I'm thinking I might try the Mighty Morphin' quest, killing Badass Varkids over and over to boost some levels. It's fun getting so close to 80!

So, I got stuck running Haderax for a while yesterday. There's a trick with Maya and her Recompense skill that allows Haderax to kill himself instantly when he enters the area. I pulled a bunch of legendaries from him - multiple Volcanoes and Nukems, a Conference Call, Hammer Buster, Lyuda, Flakker, Slagga, and probably some others I'm forgetting.

I decided to push through the main story a bit, to get some levels in. I really want to hit 80 before BL3 gets released, and possibly start another character but we'll see!
