Bob the Demon Hunter made Conqueror tonight.  Stash Space!

Not that I really use it all during non-Season anyway, but it's nice to have.  It's good to have goals.  Even better to achieve them!

I suggest picking up the DLC on special.  From worst to best

The Arena one, you get no loot, its more of a cock punching epeen thing where you are in an area, waves of enemies and you can get an achievement but not much else. Not recommended.
Zombie Dr Ned one.  Imagine the monsters reskinned as zombies.  A bit of new story, YMMV
The Claptrap one.  Do you hate claptrap? Do you want to shoot them?  This is for you.  The boss is a super claptrap. Definitely recommended.  When I went for all the achievements, it was a horrible grind with low spawning items, but just going through the story bit is great.  Awesome set of loot chests at the end


Then General Knoxx.  I put in a few lines as its far and away better than all the others.  The story is amazing for BL1 standards, you have a jaded general trying to do his best while a 7 year old or so is in charge and trying to order him around.  You have a quest where you gather then build a brand new vehicle that is great.  And the ending loot room is something that nothing comes close to  (I'm yet to finish the pre-sequel).  You get into a room with perhaps 100 massive chests.  You will NOT be able to pick up everything.  you will not have time for everything .. its the equivalent of a dash around a supermarket for 1 minute to get as many groceries as you can, but you have maybe 5 minutes.  You'll be possibly checking stats quick or just grabbing as much as you can.  There are some ways to get back in there .. can't remember the details.


If you only get one DLC, get Knoxx, but I suggest claptrap too.

If you bought it at Newegg, or GMG, or such, and it's a Steam key, you are very likely not getting your key until day of release.

We are under a month before this game comes out and there is tons of news out there about the game.  I have been avoiding it like the plague but I still managed to pick up some useful bits.

The most interesting one, for me, is that there are separate difficulty levels for puzzles, questing, and fighting.  So if you are interested in the puzzles and questing you can set those to hard and combat to easy and have at it.  I have been debating what level to set mine at for my first play through.  I imagine that I will eventually play through at the toughest setting.  I might just start off on hard across the board.  I believe there is one level higher than that.  Though I might have to play through with the questing at a lower setting the first time as it can be tricky to figure out where to go next on a first play through.

A bit annoyed that they haven't release the game codes yet.  I bought mine at NewEgg and I hope they don't wait until the last minute to send me my code.

Well I have hit level 49 in Borderlands.  Level 50 is the cap without purchasing expansions.  I believe there are two of them that raise the level cap by 10 each.  A bit torn if I want to do that.  Overall I am enjoying the game still, but it is getting a bit grindy.  Though the big problem is that different quests make you redo the same areas multiple times.

Actually I do think I remember you randomly crashing out of games as your laptop overheated the sun.

Yeah I heard this rumour the day of "multiple projects".  But Sam, did you burn out of D3? Or did you just not like playing it on a pc?  Do you want to play as you take a dump etc?
My laptop was garbage and couldn't run it smoothly (i.e. I basically couldn't play with other people or the framerate would hit 0), plus our internet was trash and would lag me out all the time. Despite all of that, I still clocked up well over 1000 hours and was still playing (with breaks in between) when my laptop was stolen. Didn't replace my laptop, so no D3...

Tim, playing games while having a bog is one of life's great pleasures - just this morning I was having my morning coffee, playing Dead Cells and getting rid of last nights dinner at the same time. Absolute joy. And before anyone says that drinking coffee on the john is gross, let me remind you that I'm just a pretty gross sort of person.

Lego - Skyrim on the Switch was fantastic. I'd never played it before but I really enjoyed it. For an old game, it holds up extremely well and the port was very good.

I have newer games to play, but can't seem to tear myself away from Skyrim on my switch, and I just beat 2 and started Mass Effect 3 on my ps3.
