Awesome! Call me crazy but one of the things I loved about the first installment was the fact that the story did suck. I know that sounds crazy, but it was nice to play a game with buddies where we could go looting, achievement whoring, and just have fun shooting things without anything in depth or having to deal with a lot of dialogue or cutscenes.
Also - I'm on the fence about dual wielding. I'm sure it will have it's benefits and drawbacks - ie not being able to look down the sites obviously. But who actually shot down the sites with most guns in the first game?
ALSO - I can't wait for more of that Gearbox humor!
