Having a villain that's dying to have you come foil his plans, while you as the hero have no interest in doing so whatsoever, is pretty funny.

What BL2 does best is making you feel like you are doing something different when really you are just doing the same thing over and over... and that's a compliment. Most games totally fail at this.

WAT ABOUT THE LVL CAP?!

I assume you play this in true vault hunter mode. Man, BL2 has so much great content if you buy the dlc pack (and if you pre-ordered, you got the mechromancer for free).

I don't know if this DLC is more challenging or if this guy just sucks at the game. I would probably say the later sense he doesn't even know the deference between exposition and expedition.

This guy keeps talking about a hunting "exposition". Not sure I'm familiar with those... why not a hunting "expedition" instead?

 @g1rldraco7 the previous  two DLCs were both around 1.25 GB, by the time we're done the DLC will probably total as much area as the main game!

 

If you're a fan of the game the content is great.

 @blastmaster2k2 Who cares how many!As long as the creators bring us something new challenging and satysfying..

 @blastmaster2k2 It's actually not a crappy game, but it's DLCs haven't been the greatest. Sorry you feel that way. BTW, there are 4 Campaign DLCs.

 @N4o7A It has been announced! there will be a lvl cap increase..at some point.

 

I just hope this comes in the form of an expansion. (no new story but increased lvl cap and extra challenges, a weapons brand and new class etc.)

Codester_41

 @N4o7A what about it? If your wanting to expand on the leveling, then yes, I agree, there should be higher than 50. I'm getting really bored not finding any better guns. :/

Actually, about halfway through he says you can play this in regular mode and the enemies are low 30s. It will be excellent to gear up for true vault hunter.

 @djblazeapound At least he's showing us the new look and content of this dlc, you should be honoured that a developer would show us a new look of the 3rd dlc and give some heads up on it.

 @djblazeapound He's one of the developers of the game :\ I am going to assume he doesn't suck. Then again, if Internet comments are to be believed, everyone that comments on an article is always better than the person on screen playing :)

 @Llegien20 

You never know man, this witch doctor could even level up any type of enemie, wait a minute......vermivorous was hard to farm by leveling him up, soooo if varkids are in this dlc and if witch doctors can level up any enemie,THEN PRAISE THE LORD, I WILL FINNALY GET A BETTER CHANCE OF GETTING A NORFLEET!!!

 @halo-freak  @N4o7A 

Will there be any loot update?

Because in BL1 we could see that getting orange guns was so easy, that's what made the game fun, collecting all of those legendaries and pearlescents, you didn't know when it was going to drop or where to farm but it always gave you a good amount of legendaries, as for this one where you have to waste 4 hours farming for 1 legendary of a certain boss takes the fun out of random drops.

They did a great job on putting more guns in but, with less loot, what's the point of billions of guns?

NEW LOOT UPDATE PLEASE!

 @Codester_41 I feel ya man, there only so much farming for weapons I can do before it kind of gets tiresome... Also, wasn't in the 3rd dlc for BL1 that they raised the level cap? It would kinda make sense if they did it with this one...

 @Kevin-V Trust me I am not dogging his gamer skills across the board. I know people that can rock on one game and suck on the next. Don't take me the wrong way he probably doesn't get to play much with the work needed to keep the gearbox name fresh and on top of the pillar. I love playing BL2 over any shooter game out, even black ops, and I was in the army special forces for over 11 years. It's great how well you make the fantasy mix with the reality of war. Like the chaos and cunfusion you get when you're mobbed by a group of suicide bandits.

 @Kevin-V  @djblazeapound Just coz someone is a dev doesn't mean they can't suck. It's like saying guys who design and make cars are the best drivers. Compare any dev gameplay pre-release with post-release videos on youtube and it will be players who play it better than any dev. e.g. He isn't using Fire weapons against flesh enemies. Remember that Terra fight where Randy and 3 others struggled to beat while community had 7 sec kill videos within a week. So yeah, guys on internet DO play better than devs.

I agree about internet comments, but at the end you see that this guy had 4 legendaries equipped. If he was in regular mode (and given the levels he was) he shouldn't have died so much.

 

Or the dlc is just hard.
