So I gave 'er the old "One-Eyed Pirate"

If you know what I'm talking about.

#52 Posted by morrelloman (634 posts) -

Why not. In today's world where people flip the game back to gamestop, I think its a decent idea to push one out ~ month after release. I know it will make me consider getting the season pass because I will probably want to play them all.

#53 Posted by _Zombie_ (1473 posts) -

I'll probably get it, considering it's only 10 bucks.

#54 Posted by Maitimo (207 posts) -

Hoping this lives up to the stuff from the first game. Still have to complete playthrough one, sadly - organising co-op around very different lives isn't the easiest thing.

Well that was fast.

There's 3 more to come after this.

I take it this is going to be the ''zombie Island'' equivalent? A small slice of additional stuff, but one that isn't suited to you carrying over your maxed out character -- least judging by the trophies. I'm still interested to see how good it is, because I've currently got two alts atm, but I'm more excited to hear about the actual post-game stuff with additional level caps and such.

But..but..Dishonored....XCOM...

#58 Posted by PatPandaHat (128 posts) -

Christ, this seems like a quick turn-around. Still, hey, if it lets me level up my Siren in prep for the final boss some, works for me.

Sorry but season passes have a negative effect on me, especially in cases like Borderlands, I'll wait for the inevitable Game of the Year edition.

#60 Posted by Besetment (506 posts) -

That last paragraph is hilarious. Makes me glad I didn't get the season pass.

#61 Posted by tallTuck94 (584 posts) -

I can't wait to play it with the new mechromancer. If there is one sure deal out there to risk a season pass on its Borderlands and i'm glad I made that choice.

So where's the level cap patch for this DLC? I've got a 50 Axton and a 34 Zero, and I honestly prefer playing Axton.

#63 Posted by Scotto (1264 posts) -

God, I hope they don't increase the cap already - I spent a lot of time farming the sweet arsenal for my lvl 50 Axton. It'd be nice to use that stuff on an expansion, and I've already got another character on the go for levelling anyway.

I'm astonished by the people gaging the DLC content by the number of achievements it offers. For starters because it means that people actually do care about those and that is beyond (my) comprehension but more importantely because BL2 doesn't have that much of said achievement in the first place.

As for the early release they said they were going to to 4 zone DLCs by june 2013 so its not that odd to see one now especialy if this is a good one. It will sell them season pass (or indeed stop sales if poorly done) and they will be able to chill a little more and then release those DLCs every 2 or 3 month and space it with non zone DLCs (Pitchford confirmed them via twitter. Go figure what the hell it will be and it could very quicly ramp up the price of the whole game a make a GOTY more interesting if you didn't picked it up yet because june 13 isn't that far away)

So many amputees in The Borderlands.

#66 Posted by Gamer_152 (14284 posts) -

Man, they're getting that additional content out there fast, and I'd be lying if I said I didn't love pirates.

Skiffs! Hell yeah! If it turns out good I'm just gonna grab the Season Pass. Thanks Alex.

I think there were multiple double entendres.

A Double Double entendre,if you will...

#69 Posted by xyzygy (10595 posts) -

I wonder if they'll increase the cap? I sure hope so I need like 3 more skill points to make the perfect Commando. Plus, with more skills in BL2 than there was in BL1, it makes more sense to increase the cap quicker. The cap in BL1 made you way too overpowered because there weren't as many skills.

#70 Posted by BLKZOMBIE (136 posts) -

@Ravenlight: I think it does, actually.

#71 Posted by xxizzypop (644 posts) -

That seems... kind of grossly fast. While this may do it for some people who this really got it's hooks in to, I just don't really want more BL2 right now. I haven't finished the main game and I don't feel any desire to come back right now between Dishonored, RE6, X-COM, ACIII rapidly approaching.

It's cool that they're turning around content quicker, but man, releasing it right now seems like it'd just kind of get lost in the mire of season releases?

But then again, what the hell do I know about marketing, maybe this is actually prime time for DLC.

#72 Posted by olizor (24 posts) -

Looks awesome! Gonna need to get it...

The pace at which developers bring out content is meaningless. While the game was in certification, they told the press they were currently developping DLC. I think people need to chill out about DLC, because it's not going anywhere soon.

#73 Posted by JimmyEcho (15 posts) -

any other game I think I'd be ticked off they were releasing DLC not even a month after the game was released, but god damnit.. I love borderlands

Sadly, it really is. Studies show that the sooner a developer releases DLC, the higher the attach rate. This is also the reason that the idea of a "season pass" is only going to get more popular. I mean, we already have a thread on this forum titled "now is the time to ditch Borderlands." The longer they wait, the more people are going to finish the game, and the more potential returns they'll have on their hands.

Can't wait already a level 48 working to get to 50 buy tuesday.

This is the voice of the Mysterons, we know that you can hear us!

#79 Posted by SpartanHoplite (429 posts) -

Hopefully by the time i get around playing BL2, they've released all the DLC already.

#80 Posted by Slither_Maggot (288 posts) -

Damn it. I have to get off my ass (or on it) and still finish a first playthrough with at least one of my characters.

#81 Posted by NimbusLaw (31 posts) -

They make it pay the same as Gaige! Come on, it's obvious that the Mechromancer DLC is Overpriced!

#82 Posted by ShadowSoulSora (2 posts) -

i can't wait

agreed ... I wish they would have given her to the community as a gift, especially since the game seems to do really good saleswise. Maybe give it to Preorder-People a week early or something. But paying for her ... idk.

All you had to do was pre-order to get her free though. If you already have the game a month in, why not just pre-order in the first place?
