There's a decent size thread in the Xbox 360 forum, but I'm sure some of us out there will be getting it on PC. Personally I'm still up in the air, but I definitely enjoyed BL1 on PC over Xbox.

Anyone else getting it on PC, or have it pre-ordered on Steam?

Planning on it, waiting on that group buy. You should wiki this thread and have that information on the first post.

Already pre-ordered from GMG for like $40 when they had that offer earlier in the month. I loved the first one, so I'm pretty excited.

Pre-ordered here, too. $45 in a group buy isn't bad at all.

Pre ordered from an amazon group buy, think it was $40. What's the release date on this again?

I'm in the market for a new card, and as good a deal as that promo is for B2 fans who would've bought it at MSRP, I'd rather have a straight $20-30 discount. Especially seeing as how prices are tumblin after the 660ti announcement.

And that's not to limit the frustration to this promo (B2). All those pack-in game bargains make comparisons frustrating, because it comes down to the internal monologue of "So maybe I'd play it rather than these other titles I have time for, but is it worth *that* much to me?"

Just give me the cash, you bastards, and make this easy for both of us. Stop making me *think*, dammit.

I'm on the fence right now. I'm in the process of building my first pc, and I wouldve bought B2 for 360 anyway so the 660ti deal is tempting me a lot. Unfortunately none of my friends have a gaming PC, but that just might mean its time to make some new ones :D

The only drawback is I may end up getting it on 360 as well,which wouldnt make things cheaper at all.

Keep in mind that the Nvidia deal isn't just for the 660. It's the 660 and any superior card. AMD currently has a similar deal for Sleeping Dogs.

See, I'm totally cool with the Borderlands 2 deal, but another part that I bought came with DiRT 3. I don't want DiRT 3. Does anyone want DiRT 3? Do people play DiRT 3? Is there any way for such a short name to be more annoying to type than DiRT 3?

God damn.

Yep, I just want my bitchin card by itself so I can play 18-to-24-month-old, heavily discounted titles at high resolutions with sliders up and BG music off. That's it, I'm a simple man. I don't want your oddly capitalized or even your eagerly anticipated titles for free, I don't know how they'd fit in my plan of binging on bargain titles.

The point is, just build it in to the MSRP dammit. I want an all-out price war, not a window dressing slap fight. All the friggin mail-in rebates are bullshit enough, don't go bringing "free" games into this transaction. (It's like how PSUs come in those ridiculous crown royal bags. FFS. Keep the bullshit bag and give me 50 cents off the MSRP.)

Wow, I've got a serious geriatric letter to the editor vibe going here...

And the worst part is that even when you have background music turned off, it always shows up in cutscenes.

Yes, Bioware, I totally wanted to hear your music interrupt my two-hour klezmer marathon for the twenty or so seconds it takes the Normandy to land.

CAG...the only place where people will bitch about a great free game.

Those games are just bonuses. Don't think the cards would be any cheaper if they decided to not include the game. Its like when you pre-order a game and get bonus DLC. If you weren't getting the DLC the game still wouldn't be any cheaper.

In no way am I saying it isn't (or won't be) a great game.

But c'mon, dude. Nothing's free, man. You're getting played by the system, bro. Don't shoot the messenger, muchacho. You feel me, G?

Im just saying, its not like the video card would be cheaper if they didnt include the free game. Its a bonus.

You need to chill and just enjoy it. It was FREE! This reminds me of the supersize arguments. I don't want a shitload of fries for 25 more cents. I'd rather I pay a few cents less for the fries I can eat. But Jimbo over here's like, "It's only 25 cents! You could double your fries for only 25 cents! How can you not see that this is the bargain of the century!?"

Back on topic: I watched the BL2 intro with the british fella and I think they're guilty of crossing the line with "bad ass." Okay, you use it a lot, you're self-aware in that hip way. Wait, you're calling them "bad ass points"? And now you just flashed "BAD ASS" onto the screen? It didn't take long to go from cheeky to self-parody. I get it, it's over the top. I guess I'm saying that it's not half as smart as they want it to be. Lookit me getting catty.

Part of the pre-order promo should be additional bad ass points. They should just give 'em to you, for free. You can't turn down free bad ass points. They're free. Bad ass points just don't fall out of the sky.

I wonder if me getting the game through this deal counts as me having "preordered" it. Getting the upcoming character DLC for free would be nice.

So damn excited for this. Only nine more days. Been playing through the first one again to pass the time. Still just as fun as I remember.

What class is everyone going to play? After looking at the skill builder last night, I think I'm going to play a Siren again. I'll probably play a Commando as my alt.

Didn't touch the first one, but Siren looks good to me, too.

Honestly, I like everything but Zero. I'm just not big on stealth/melee in FPS'.

Yeah. I wasn't a huge fan of the melee combat in the first one, so I doubt I'll touch Zero at all.

I dunno, Zero sounds like he's gonna be interesting. I'll definitely give him a try. I'll probably start with the commando though, as I played Roland in the first one a lot.
