The Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Thread of Fucking Awesomeness

Release date is 2 weeks from today. 2 weeks from today also happens to be the greatest day of the year 2014.

Borderlands - the pre-sequel comes out tomorrow
Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow
is really soon
Just thinkin' about tomorrow
Shooting up badguys and collecting loot on Pandora's moon

When I'm stuck in the day that's grey and lonely
I just stick up my chin and grin and say oh

This game will come out tomorrow
So you got to hang on
till' tomorrow, come what may!
Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love ya, tomorrow
The game better be in my fucking mailbox when I get home from work or I'm going to go postal on Amazon and make them pay!

Bumping this because stupidheads keep posting about games other than Borderlands and they really shouldn't be.

Review after night one of co-op with my son:

MOTHERFUCKINGAWESOMEILOVEBORDERLANDSEVER!


Kiddo is Wilhelm
I am Nisha

He won the coin toss to pick a character first. We both had Wilhelm as 1 and Nisha as 2.

I love this game.


Because Borderlands!

I spent my first 4 or so hours playing all of the characters to decide which one i'll start with. I'm probably going to go with Wilhelm, since his talent trees seem the most fun, but the dark horse is... Claptrap. i thought his action skill would kind of suck, since it's random. but holy shit, every use is a new form of hilarious. Also, when you select him as a character, the game goes through 4 different "Are you sure?" confirmation boxes. it's funny. And he narrates what he's doing, with "little kid" gun sounds and everything.

I was looking at the skill trees for the different characters yesterday, and was thinking Athena-- since I played as the Siren in the first two Borderlands-- but man, the Claptrap is very tempting, just from a purely fun perspective. Is he severely underpowered or anything, though?

no, but his talent trees seem like they'd be more effective in a group. also, i thought Athena was the worst character out of my limited playtime with her. the shield action skill is... lame. And don't discount the banter between your character (yes, they talk this time around) and Jack. He hits on Nisha, he's all bros with Wilhelm, he's "FML" with Claptrap, and he's sort of in awe of Athena.

I get kinda creeped when Jack hits on me.

Claptrap seemed interesting but novelty...that would wear off. I could see him being interesting out the gate and not so bad earlier in the game when things mattered least..but when shit started getting super real....not so much.

i've used his special 7 or 8 times in dire combat straits. i've either gotten Zer0's decoy/invisibility, Sal's gunzerker (which is my favorite so far, since he auto shoots and doesn't use any of your actual ammo), Krieg's supermutant rampage, and phaselock. The further up his talent trees you go, it unlocks different possibilities (pirate ship Trap!) i have yet to get a dud of a special, not sure if there are any that come up randomly.

And he doesn't need his Oz container to breathe, just for the double jump and slams.

Do you actually have to find recipes for the Grinder, or can you just throw in three random objects? I've been trying all kinds of different combinations of pistols, SMG, shields, grenade mods, etc... and it never lets me make anything.

The Grinder is complicated....

Also, this is kinda cool. Didn't do it (did the normal "call him a dick"). But still...kinda cool.

Hi. Are you like me and upgraded both your last gen consoles to the next-gen, but felt like you may have missed out on Borderlands. Well, have no fear, because the Borderlands Handsome Collection is here! The next-gen remastering comes with Borderlands 2, Borderlands the Pre-Sequel, all the DLC for both games (including anything coming for the pre-sequel), and touched up next-gen graphics.

Looking for a little more "oomph"? Good news: there's also the Claptrap-in-a-Box Limited Edition, which includes the typical nerd stuff of lithographs and steel cases, but, for the meat of the collection, a remote controllable Claptrap, complete with smart-phone compatibility, a video camera for an eye, and lots of catchphrases. It's sure to be the first of many of our new robotic overlords.

I'm also very tempted at buying the limited edition. I usually don't splurge on them, in fact cutting myself off at $20 more than the price of the game so long as the extras are in-game exclusives, but that remote control Claptrap is tempting...

Let me know how it is - I have 360. Saw no reason to upgrade to either PS4 or One - no games or features that were "OMFG MUST HAVE".

This might push me over the edge
