    Definitely with a group of friends. I played through most of Borderlands with a laptop nearby and three other people on the same Skype call. I'm anticipating the same thing all over again.

    I don't have any friends who play games (at least, that play the ones I like to play) so I'll be on my own. Like always.

    Why is there no "only co-op" option? I wouldn't touch Borderlands with a 10-foot single-player pole!

    I guess that'll depend on whether my friends get a copy of the game to and how may of them do. I played the large majority of the first game single-player and that was fun enough.

    All of the single-player, and co-op with friends.

    Weird poll-options.

    I didn't play the first one but I'm interested in trying the second, and one of my friends did play the first one so we'll probably play together.

    Co-oping it with my friends. They have forced me to buy on PC though which is something I'm not sure about. Super hyped for the game though!

    I will probably have at least 2 characters, much like I did with the first one. One single player and one co-op. The single player will be for slowly going through the game and enjoying myself, while the co-op will end up being a mad dash to beat the game as fast as possible. This is what happens when co-op buddies favorite games are fast paced linear shooters and yours aren't.

    I played the first one all the way through solo, so the sequel will be the same. I enjoy playing untethered to any responsibilities. Besides my broadband is crappy slow.

    I do enjoy the occasional co-op session, but that's mostly because of hard stuff like crawmerax and stuff.

    I voted for mostly multiplayer with friends but if its anything like the first game i'll end up being the last of my friends to keep playing and stick to singleplayer while i level up the other classes.

    If I get it?

    Probably single player. I played the original Borderlands some multiplayer, but I found myself mostly playing it alone. That first game feels way unbalanced when you add just one other person of equal level with you; I found myself up against bullet sponges all of the time. Four players, though, seemed a lot better; I hope this is fixed in the second one because I want to play it with my brother.

    I'm going to play through on single player first, the original game was hugely unbalanced, especially if someone was playing as Lilith.

    After that, mainly co-op online/lan.

    I'll most likely play through it single player and if one of my friends get it I'll play some of it co op. I played through the first game solo and loved it.

    I'll have a bunch of people to play with online for at least the first month, so I'll do a ton of that, mixed w/sp when applicable. Randoms no. I give 'em a week and there'll be modded crap everywhere.

    I will play with my Brother. I only played Borderlands with my Brother. I tried to play singleplayer Borderlands, but every time I'd get maybe 30 minutes in and then be overwhelmed with boredom.

    C. Mostly with a single friend in split-screen
    2.7%

    I'm really happy for you that you'll be able to play this way, and I'm even happier that Borderlands 2 will support split-screen online co-op this time around, but this is a good example of why you don't see too many split-screen games anymore.

    For everyone complaining about games like Tony Hawk HD leaving out the absolutely vital feature that is split-screen, you can see from this poll how popular couch multiplayer really is in 2012. If these numbers are even close to accurate, I would think it would be hard for developers to devote time and resources to something that less than 5% of players will consistently use.

    @SpaceInsomniac: I think there's a huge difference between wanting split-screen in a Diablo style FPS and wanting it in an arcade game which banks largely on nostalgia and old school gameplay.

    Also, this is a pretty "hardcore" gaming form. You can't take stats like these and assume they speak for the majority of players.

    Mostly co-op. But it'll also mean I won't play a tonne of Borderlands 2 at once, but rather a bunch of Borderlands 2 over the next few years. 
    My bro is generally my co-op partner for these sorts of games and I'd not play the game any other way, but dude's busier than I am so it takes us time to get through certain games. 
    Hell still trying to get through the first one.

    It is a "hardcore" forum, but I'd think that both Borderlands and THPS are hardcore games. And if this is a hardcore gaming forum, don't you think that average users would be LESS likely to bother with split-screen, rather than more likely?

    I think game companies have the actual numbers on things like this, and that's why we don't see many split-screen games anymore.

    If you play on the PC the PC Gaming Hub can be used to find willing co-op players - lately we have people replaying the original.

    @SpaceInsomniac:

    I know, and it sucks. I was bummed out when I discovered THPSHD does not support any split screen (or local multiplayer) at all. We mostly just play Call of Duty online split screen now, and that gets old after a while. But I understand it's not a priority for a lot of people.

    Single player mostly along with some occasional online co-op with buddies and people I know from sites. I can't stand random multiplayer anymore, so I'm not even touching that this time. Oh and I'll be playing split screen with my room mates whenever I get around to picking up a ps3 copy as my second copy of the game.

    Like with the first one, I'll start 2 guys at the same time. I play through part of the game by myself with one guy. than play the same part online, than switch back and forth so both guys will the end of the game at about the same time and both will have been online and solo at different points. I like this cause I can figure out where and how to do certain parts online but than take my time and do it by myself. Also it get my guys more levels and guns playing online.

    Same here..well the extent of my friends' gaming is Mario Kart w/ their kids. I'm the only hardcore badazz gamer in my peer group, so I'll be campaigning by lonesome, thank you.

    Probably play on my own and then open it up with friends. I'll also wait for reviews and other opinions before I get it. I didn't like Borderlands that much so I hope they fix the problems that I had with the original game.

    Really hoping that I manage to find some people to play the PC build with co-op. I played the original Borderlands on PS3 entirely by myself. While I found much to like and even some to absolutely adore, the game started to drag something fierce by the final few missions. I'm sure the loot bumps and innate insanity of online co-op would have remedied those blues.

    Anyone want to Steam buddy up?!?

    I played the original SP because no one got it until way after I finished but played MP when they finally picked it up.. But now since it's a day 1 purchase for them, most likely CO-OP

    Hopefully, enough of my friends will buy this game that I can play some co-op, but I'll probably end up playing the majority by myself so I don't have to rely on all of our schedules lining up.

    I don't have much choice but to play alone, since I don't have any friends interested in playing it. I don't mind though, I prefer playing by myself most of the time anyway-

    All of my friends who plan on getting this game don't play games on PC, sadly, so I'll be playing alone unless I can convince some of my more PC focused friends to get it at launch, or at least on the holidays when there are sales.

    Presently, it seems that I'll probably be going through the game alone.
