Tomorrow marks the beginning of a busy release schedule. Borderlands 2 will be out.
As you can see from the image, I’m preloaded and ready to go. I was a little on the fence about pre-ordering. I knew I was going to eventually play it but didn’t know if I should go ahead and get it now.
However, Green Man Gaming was running a deal where I was able to get the game and the season pass for the DLC for $61.90. So I basically got all the DLC for $1.91. I couldn’t pass that up.
So now I’m ready to go. I’m really looking forward to getting into this one tomorrow. I enjoyed the original Borderlands, although I never finished it. An FPS loot game is just about perfect for me.
In the original, I played as Mordecai, the sniper. I tried Brick initially but changed pretty quickly. Mordecai felt a lot like the mage/wizard class I love the play in MMOs.
They changed the classes around in Borderlands 2. The sniper is Zero, the assassin. However, I think I’m going a different direction this time.
Salvador is the Gunzerker. Gunzerker. In Borderlands 2. With “bazillions of guns”. Yup, that’s who I’m playing.
I’m going to spend some time today playing around with Salvador’s skill tree. I want to have a fairly good idea where I’m heading before I start. I’m going to start off aiming to do as much damage as possible. I may tweak my build to add some of the more tank like abilities later but for now, damage is king.
Man, I’m excited about this one! Between this tomorrow and Torchlight 2 on Thursday, I am going to have a phat loot week for sure!
