Yeah...I am enjoying it.  I will refrain from spoilers but I am enjoying the story. About 20% into the game.  I had to back off Hard Exploration and Puzzles.  I still have hard combat but we shall see how far I get.

Woo Hoo...for me the party has started.  I am in the first chapter and so far it is very interesting.  I think the cut scenes are straining my video card which is annoying.  I am seeing so tearing.  But over all I am very happy with the game so far.  I am playing on Hard/Hard/Hard right now.  I figure I can always dial things back if it gets too crazy.

Still trying to figure out how the leveling works.  Right now it seems that it is more automatic, but maybe I just need to reach my first campsite.  Funny that I haven't found one yet.

Well the game unlocks today for me.  Sadly I am at work.  Even more sad is that I have to work at my son's water polo match tonight.  I will try to at least start the game at some point today.

Agreed.  I have played through it twice and they nailed this DLC like few DLCs have been nailed in any game.  During regular story progression, when you visit Tina,  checkout her book case where you will see a picture of her riding on Roland's shoulder.  Both with wide smiles.  Roland never smiles.  Also during the Wildlife quests you can find echos that tell the tragic story of Tina's parents.  Tortured to death in slag experiments, which Tina witnessed.  Some people think, I don't agree, that Krieg is actually Tina's father.  There are a couple points in favor and several against this line of thinking.  In many ways Tina is one of best, and most fleshed out, characters in the BL universe.

I am close to wrapping up my first play through of the Pirate DLC.  I have already completed Torgue and I will move on to Sir Hammerlock at some point.  I am going to try to complete all the content in UVHM which has been a real challenge.  The only think that have truly sucked in UVHM are some of the bosses.  I also do not think I will do any Raid bosses solo.

All of this will have to wait a bit as Tomb Raider unlocks TODAY.

Lol...that is pretty awesome.

I think Florida Man has many more offerings in the Chaotic Evil category.

And yes...nothing good about documenting Farts.

Yeah...I will probably try to get some of these off.

I doubt I will to the MP ones as no one is playing the game.  I have opened my game to public and no one has joined.  Not a big deal.  Also might be a while since Tomb Raider is Pre-Loaded and I start my journey on Wednesday.

WooT!

NewEgg sent me the code! :D

I'll be getting this set up tonight.  I hope I can pre-install it before Wednesday.

Can't wait.

Hit level 62 in BL2.  I have finally killed the Leviathan and I will soon be finishing Pirate DLC.  I finished the Torque DLC which was pretty fun.  I had to cheese two of the bosses but it still managed to be fun.  The Torque DLC ends with the Badassasaurus which was ridiculous.  It had a hidden reflect damage on the damn thing.  Only way to kill was to use a Torque weapon, which is silly if you think about it.  I hid behind a concrete barrier to kill that boss.  I am ok with Bosses being tough but it is crazy that you have to cheese them to beat them.   That said I am still enjoying leveling up my character and looking for gear.

Have I said that it is such a shit show?

I read an excerpt from the book, and it is really beyond words what is going on.  I haven't read the op-ed yet.

This is the first time that I haven't been able to beat a boss in BL2.  Though I guess the DLCs have a bunch that I haven't tried.

It is not much fun when this happens.  I am close to get past this but it has been an absolute pain.

I have mostly finished the Pirates DLC.  I am a bit annoyed in that I can't kill the Leviathan.  He is considered easy to beat and I get how to do it but he is doing massive damage with the rocks that he throws.  One hit brings my health all the way down and the next one kills me.  I think this is a factor in that I am doing this in UVHM.  I will try again when I get better equipment.

I also farmed two infinity pistols just so I have a weapon that won't run out of ammo.  Unfortunately both of them are base versions of the weapon and one day I might go back and try to farm a better one.

I am currently level 59 and rapidly approaching the level cap for the expansion that I have.  One more level expansion to buy if I want to continue.

I continue to really enjoy playing Borderlands 2.  Humble Bundle had a sale and it was cheaper for me to buy the game of the year edition then but one of the DLCs.  The GOTY edition mean while had all the DLCs. 

So right now I am going through the pirate DLC for the first time.

And I should note that I picked up the Legendary Siren Class mod...which seems just freakin' awesome.  Even better I got in a random loot chest in the Pirate DLC.

lol....friends don't let friends drink and quest


I am in UVHM now in Borderlands 2.  Holy cow, it is like a different game.  When I play these games you always wonder why the bad guys never have good equipment.  Or at least decent equipment as, as we know, it is pretty damn easy to get equipment.  Well wonder no longer, just play UVHM and have enemies snipping you with elemental weapons while sporting equipment that gives them good shield and health regeneration.  Every battle takes a little thought and you have to be able to move and gun or you will be planted in the ground.

I am not yet sure how to feel about this mode, as it is tough.  Most of the times I really like it, and then you get to the scenario where you are planted four times in a row.  Moving more slowly.  Boss running to get better gear.  Slowly making head way.  Right now I am level 53.
