I just got that gun. It's funny how I'm also on that same quest. It makes me laugh when I use it, especially when I'm moving so slow and dying because I'm moving so slow. I love you, GBX.
A bit of a rough start on Boarderlands 2. I did not get a single SMG yet and I had to in a side quest to get a sniper rifle. Still, loving the game so far.
Been playing the siren lady. Only level 13 yet. Using pistols* and sniper rifles mostly, as those seem to make most sense when you solo.
* The best pistols seem to be the ones that basically shoot multiple, slow-moving projectiles that explode or goop acid on impact. Handles a bit like a shotgun with good accuracy at range.
This type of weapon:
As for the game, it's very interesting. Unfortunately since I've never played 1 I'm horribly confused. None the less I'm enjoying it so far the only thing is there's something about the game that causes me to get motion sickness really easy so I can't play it for long periods of time.. I'm only on chapter 3.. Looking for some tape recordings. Yup..
Didn't play borderlands 1 either. Doesn't really seem to be that big of a deal though.
Maybe I'm just stupid cause I have no idea what's going on in the game. I'm just like "PEW PEW..PEW PEW PEW..." -loot loot- "PEW PEW PEW..." -die-
I eventually get motion sickness too, despite the fact that I don't get motion sick IRL and I can sit and play stuff like F-Zero for hours and hours and hours. For me, I found it has to do with getting hungry. Stopping, getting something to eat and getting a drink helps me. I suspect it's the art style (the comic-book black lines) that might be making me feel ill, though it only shows up some 4-5 hours continuous gaming.
Almost done with my second playthrough with Siren.
I still love Assassin though, such a badass.
How are you on your second playthrough?! Played all weekend, and I just checked the plot on wikipedia -- I just finished the first paragraph out of like 10.
I've had the game since last Tuesday and not even got to the Caustic Caverns yet. Part of this may be due to the fact I'm doing a co-op runthrough and thus running two characters (Assassin as main/co-op and Siren for solo for practice) and only playing maybe 4/5 hours a day.
I'm in Europe and I got Borderlands the same day America did.
I'm doing a co-op playthrough of the game with some friends ... uploading videos on what I intend to be a 1-video-a-day thing ... takes all night to render the audio/video streams together in Vegas.
btw if anybody wants to do something similar, I'm game.
So i've been playing it recently and i found out they madde a tribute to tmnt. How many of you have noticed it? Lol
I'm in caustic caverns.
I hate threshers so much.
Crystalisks are cool though. You can just punch them 3 times and they're dead, and it then rains money. I'm good with that.
I found a weird problem. I'm doing a quest where I have to get someone's gun and I do that by searching the dead body. The problem is the game doesn't want to search the body. Plus the objective meter was in an area which is impossible to get to. Yeah I fixed it by restarting the game but still It's really odd
