How many other people do you intend to play Borderlands 2 with?

I'll probably just play it by myself like I did with the first Borderlands since I like moving at my own pace.

A mix between playing alone and with randoms since I'll be on PC.

Probably with my brother, whenever I or he gets it.

For Borderlands, I tried to play with a full group of 4. But having that many people who also went ahead and soloed made it a bit of a pain later, since they just wanted to do everything and spoil some tidbits.

I'm planning on playing this with just one other person and taking our time together because I am a sap. :D

I think I'll go on my own at first, and then switch over to playing with 3 random people. That's how I handled the first game.

I'll be travelling the Borderlands alone, as I did before.

1) Turn on 360.

2) See which friends are online who have Borderlands 2.

3) Call other friends and attempt to get three or four players total.

4) Talk about where you all are in the campaign, and enter the game of whoever is farthest back.

5) Play some bits again, but be glad that you're doing it with friends, that you can still get cool loot, and that your somewhat overpowered characters can help them out.

The alternate method is use several characters, and only use those characters when you play with each respective co-op partner or group.

Are we talking the red borderlands, the green borderlands, or the blue borderlands?

I have two close friends on PS3 that I've played Borderlands with, so assuming they buy it right away too then there will be 3 of us. A full 4 people is crowded anyways, damn.

Rollin' solo as I did in the first.

alone, would rather play with others..

Probably like I did with the first one, have two dudes and go back and forth playing online and alone. I would start a dude online get a few levels and guns and figure out where stuff was. Than I would start a different dude by myself playing from the start past where I was before. Than switch back off line and continue first story and back and forth. I'll end up with two different people at the end at the same time.

I'll be on my own like last time. If it's like the first game, it'll take me two years to finish the original campaign because I'm a slow fuck.

I'm sure there will be a post your gamertag / PSN name thread for anyone who doesn't have any friends that picked up a copy. With the new trade system, it should make playing online without good friends much less of a pain.

I'll play with 2 other friends most of the time.

Already got this planned. Wife and I will split screen while linking up with my 2 best online buds. We're going to rock Pandora the way it was meant to.

Alone.

Other people would just slow me down.

Maybe on a second character i'll start dabling in MP, as a side thing while doing a second playthrough with the first character.

#20 Posted by Yummylee (21665 posts) -

I'll be playing with my brother no doubt, though I may also make up an alt character for any MP groupings.

#21 Posted by BulletproofMonk (2721 posts) -

If I can get my friend to buy the game, I'll probably play with him.

#22 Posted by hbkdx12 (779 posts) -

intend to play alone. Like i did with Borderlands

probably make a seperate character build for online play with randoms/ppl on my list

#23 Posted by Bloodgraiv3 (2712 posts) -

I'm going to play it with a full group.

#24 Posted by Giefcookie (603 posts) -

If I can detach my friends from GW2 for long enough to get through it I'll be doing a 3man / 4man group. If not I dont mind going solo.

#25 Posted by Spoonman671 (4641 posts) -

I'll probably play it by myself.  Hopefully it plays better solo than Borderlands did.  That kind of sucked balls.

#26 Posted by Soapy86 (2622 posts) -

I intend to play with one other person, but ssid person isn't very reliable about buying and playing co-op games so I'll probably end up playing by myself.

#27 Posted by _Zombie_ (1462 posts) -

Probably gonna start out in SP, get some leveling done and get a couple decent weapons. After that, I'll move on to MP, considering me and a half dozen of my friends are getting the game.

#28 Posted by periahdark (115 posts) -

Probably by myself. I just got through Borderlands on my own a few days ago (going through the DLC now).

#29 Posted by MentalDisruption (1635 posts) -

It'll vary. I want to solo it first, but then I'll start playing with some friends and other people. Will never do randoms though.
