Johnathan and Steve ultimately made this entire video feel.. I just don't even want to get it now.

can someone please tell me whether they are releasing episodic content for this game and how much does it cost for the extra content and does it represent good value.  Do people group in this game.  I like cooperative play and might buy this if there is the chance of playing in groups.  Also, how will it run on an i7 with gt555m card?  Thanks for any responses.

Anyone know what level the enemies are in Pirate's Booty DLC? I don't want to waste my time since I'm already level 50.

This game is just fantastic.  The DLC in the first game was great, so there's no reason to think the new DLC in Borderlands 2 will be anything less.  I mean, come on, "Captain Scarlett And Her Pirate's Booty" as a title?  That just screams greatness.

I'll pass,,,my first easy play-through, loot 4 levels below my character worthless, 500,000 credits not a single orange weapon, leveling up was pointless as AI was always my level regardless, ruined the game for me , made exploring pointless........

Somehow, companies managed to delete memories from most gamers.

Can't believe no one remember Expansion packs, mod tools and free content from the community.

yah it does, i was lvl 41 and the enemies ranged from 41 to 45

you needt be level 15 to be able to go to Oasis(minimum level requirement), However if you are a higher level this map will cap the enemies to a higher level to make to missions challenging. So if you level 50 they will be between 50 and 52

I was level 40 on my second play through when I got my first orange weapon drop. I wish you larger bosses dropped an orange item like 1 out for 5 times ro something, I fought the warrior 20 times in a row with two players(both had teh 5% increase of rare item elic equipped) and nothing dropped that was orange. TheTerramorphous drops a orange class mod ever defeat but other than that It took me 30 battles to get a orange gernade

 drop.

 @XspidervenomX The best loot comes @ level 50 after you've finished the vault hunter playthrough. Also 500k is nothing. Legendaries are rare in this game. If you want easy rewards then I think you need to look at playing some other game. BL2 is probably not for you.

Nevermind, I'm an idiot.  i didnt know you had to go to Oasis

 @Arsyad00 Yup it's a loot shooter. There are people who love these types of games like myself, and there are those who hate them.

 @jorge69696 name free expansions on console from the 70s, 80s, or 90s and anything before ps3. You can even include 360 cause there aren't many.

 @vallee05 According to the official guide orange drop rates are 5% or 1/20. However, bosses drop different oranges, so you may not get the one you want when it does come out. I've farmed Warrior at least 300 times now and I've gotten only 1 CC to drop. I've gotten other oranges from him though.Personally I don't even bother with farming and the like until I get to level 50 because any weapon under level 50 is probably not the one you'll be wanting to keep.

 @saucex4  @Arsyad00 Hate implies fear.

So.. do they fear this game? and if so why.

 

Lol do they fear losing their entire playerbase to this game?

 @buccomatic  @jorge69696 You remember huh? You must live in some alternate reality cause I have never seen a free additional content on any major platform outside of the PC. Name any platform from the 70s, 80s, and 90s and even into the 00s. You guys are always yammering vague generalizations of a time that has never existed.

 

I have my problems with DLC and how some companies don't give you value, but most of the bullshit that people spill out is just not true. Also BL2 has value, including it's DLC, though I admit buying Gaige for $10 is a bit steep. It should have been $8 or less.

 @Arsyad00 Gearbox is claiming that all BL2 DLCs are as big or bigger than Knoxx on BL1. If you take that at face value then there should be new guns, and I suspect that at least all the bosses will have legendary drops like the other bosses in BL2.

 @mlcarter815 I wasn't my intention to point you out specifically, what I should have said was "But people..."

saucex4

 @mlcarter815 Also please don't get me wrong, it's not like I'm a proponent of making things more expensive or something, and that I'm against free content. I'm all for free content, and modding. This is one reason I love the PC platform.

 

But you cannot expect a company selling content on console to make it available for free on the PC version on release. It would be irresponsible of them as a corporation. Also note that in many countries including the United States (where Gearbox is based), they are legally responsible to make their shareholders happy. That usually means making more and more money. I don't like this as much as any other consumer, but it's the reality of capitalism in western society.

 

Valve is definitely making it easier for PC developers to release free content with their recent release of Steam Workshop. Unfortunately a lot of console developers are at the mercy of Microsoft and Sony in this generation of gaming, which leads to PC ports having to be restricted to the same standards as consoles.

mlcarter815
mlcarter815

 @saucex4 Yes, free content from the community. Content made by the mod tools. Of course the mod tools are released by the devs. They are just simplified versions of their tools they used to make parts of the game. 

saucex4
saucex4

 @mlcarter815 Expansion packs AND mod tools AND "free content from the community". I read "community" as being part of the last noun phrase, not as apart of expansion packs and mod tools. Also a lot of the time mod tools are made available by the developers, like Torchlight 2 for example.

mlcarter815
mlcarter815

 @saucex4 OP wrote "Expansion packs, mod tools and free content from the community." The free content comes from the community, not the developers. 

saucex4
saucex4

 @mlcarter815 Also PC exclusive games, or rather games that started their life on the PC platform still have content that is developed and added for free. Terraria is a good example of that..

 

Also it should be noted that DLC, or additional content comes at additional cost these days BECAUSE of the console hardware developers. Microsoft, and Sony...well especially Microsoft do not allow for free content that readily. So technically it's not the fault of Gearbox or 2K but rather the likes of Microsoft. So people shouldn't be complaining to Gearbox about it, they should be taking their pitchforks to Microsoft.

 

I'm seriously getting tired of the DLC debate coming up in all of the DLC videos on GS. The cause is very evident here, but people refuse to see it.

saucex4

 @mlcarter815 I'm saying that the majority of games have been marketed on consoles, especially in the last 15 years if not more. If the majority of the market has not been giving free content for a good majority of its existence then how can someone claim that they remembered a day when developers in the industry AS A WHOLE gave away free content when it was only a 1 market segment?

mlcarter815
mlcarter815

 @saucex4 When it is pretty obvious what people are saying. If free content wasn't historically available on consoles, then why would someone claim that it was? It makes more sense for them to mean PCs, which did have free content. 

saucex4

 @mlcarter815 GS's bias has something to do with the visitors of the website. People come here to view gaming "news', if you can call it that, regarding mostly console games.

saucex4
saucex4

 @mlcarter815 And you want people to assume that they know EXACTLY what you mean? People are responsible for their words and how they comment on things. You have to make sure to the best of your ability that your point is getting across.

mlcarter815
mlcarter815

 @saucex4 So you need everything spelled out for you? You'd prefer to jump to a false assumption. 

saucex4

 @mlcarter815 Also note that GS is very biased towards consoles. GS's PC section is almost non existent. I look at other websites for PC gaming.

saucex4

 @mlcarter815 I haven't seen a single person claim PC explicitly. Since people are not going to be specific I make an assumption that they mean the entire gaming industry including all platforms. Also majority market share for gaming is on consoles, so it would be stupid of me not to include that.

mlcarter815
mlcarter815

 @saucex4 I haven't seen a single person claim that they got free content from a console. Every time the PC has been implied.

saucex4

 @mlcarter815 I agree with you completely. I was very specific about my comments and as you have probably read I did say "outside of PC". My point is that  some seem to think we've had free content from developers since the 70s. The PC scene is great because of modders, which is why I'm a PC gamer myself, and my PS3 is just collecting dust.

mlcarter815
mlcarter815

 @saucex4  Just because consoles didn't have free content created by the community doesn't mean PCs didn't. The trend to consolize every game has removed the modding features from modern PC games.
