Welcome to the Borderlands!
So, the second Borderlands game has been out for a little while now, and I'm just keen to know; Who's playing it? Who's enjoying it? Did you play the last one and, if so, how do you think this new version stacks up?
I played through most of the first borderlands (and the expansions!) and although I'm not a huge FPS fan, I enjoyed the game because it was amusing and often plainly ridiculous - too many games take themselves too seriously these days, and while that's fine (and sometimes exactly what I'm after), occasionally you just need to set a midget on fire...
So, what have you seen/done in Borderlands 2 thus far? Please try to avoid spoilers, if possible - I know story isn't a huge part of the game, but its there and is something I think people should discover for themselves!
I've started the game with Maya - I played as Lilith a lot in the first game, and although I was really having a hard time deciding between Maya and Zero, the siren won me over. I guess that shouldn't be surprising given that's kind of what their name implies
Borderlands 2 seems a bit harder then the first one, at least to me. Maybe it's just my low level, the fact I haven't got the greatest of equipment as yet, or that I'm still learning what's effective in what situation... I dunno. I guess I'll just have to see how that plays out.
I have enjoyed what I've done thus far, though. Some genuinely funny moments in this game thus far, even if I've only just reached Sanctuary, and catching up with some of the characters from the original game is kind of neat.
I wonder who else I'll run in to along the way
Also I wanna meet Jack's pony. Diamond Pony, sorry. Maybe once I topple him I can... Liberate it from his clutches. And ride it across Pandora.
I hope he looks after it for me.
