I am having a lot of fun with Gaige. Definitely my second favorite character after Maya. They weren't kidding about "fixing" Mamaril's spawn rate, I've played to level 17 so far and not seen him a single time in this playthrough.

I have the day off work tomorrow so depending on when the DLC is available I may be able to play it during the day. :D

Downloading the new DLC right now... It is 1.2 GB by the way!

It wasn't there when I started playing at 2am Pacific even though the game told me there was new content. It was there at 4am when I was done playing though.

Sweet Gaige video:



I wonder why there's no trailer video for Captain Scarlett?

I cant even find the DLC. I've checked both Xbox.com and straight from my Xbox. I did see a ad for it but when I click on that, it shows up for a price if -1 msp. Hope this is sorted out quickly.

Edit-ok I was able to access it through the in game dlc menu.

What about from the in-game DLC menu?

Well I just got The Bee from Hunter Hellquist on my first attempt. Getting very lucky with the orange drops so far (only 3, but 3 of the best items in the game IMHO).

DLC gives you a place named "Oasis" to warp to. I went there last night and fought some pirates and did a few side missions. The hovercraft (new vehicle) is pretty damn slick, though. It controls much better than the other vehicles.

Well the g4tv review of the pirate dlc says it is great. He was saying that 8+ hours of content easily. Time to buy a season pass.

If they have multiple places to go in the DLC I hope they fixed one of my few complaints from the first game. That you couldn't warp anywhere except the main area.

This is somewhat fixed. There are about 5 areas to go to in the DLC. They all have fast travel options, but a lot of the missions have quests that are at the end of an area, and you have to run all the way back to get back to the exit/fast travel station. It was faster for me to just save and quit so I'd reload back at the beginning.

My opinion of the DLC: Don't buy it unless you love BL2 in general. Spoilers incoming.

I'm liking the Pirate's DLC a lot. Did the first 2 story missions and several side quests. Some good humor in Oasis.

I think the season pass is well worth it if all 4 expansions are similar to this in scope. If they're in the 5-6 hour range as this one apparently is, that's 20 some hours of content which is pretty solid. Especially in a game a lot of people will play through multiple times with different characters.

No problems, bugs or glitches with the latest content? I was reading on the Gearbox forums that season pass owners were having problems with it still costing Microsoft Points.

Worked fine for me, other than having to download it a second time. Wasn't showing up when I got home from work (had set it to download in background in morning). That was just a download issue though as it showed as incomplete on the HD when I checked in the storage section of system settings (despite being listed at 1.3 GBs).

Only other mild annoyance was they should have made a quest pop up after it installed so you knew to go to Oasis. I don't pay that much attention to area names, so I didn't notice it in the travel list and had to hop online and look up how to start the DLC.

But no gameplay glitches I've encountered yet in the 2 or 3 hours I've played so far.

I finished up the main quest last night. Took about 6 hours, but I have some sidequests left over and of course the raid bosses. I played on my Normal Mode mechromancer, went in at level 17 and came out at 21. Found one orange gun and a ton of very nice purples and blues. All in all I liked this DLC a lot. I thought it had a lot of personality, the locations and new vehicles were cool and overall it was just a fun experience.

Honestly the best description I can give is "It's even more Borderlands." After both games and all of the DLC for B1 I think we all know the score here, for better or for worse a Borderlands DLC is not going to do something radically different, it's going to deliver more guns, more quests, and more funny dialogue. That is what you get here. I didn't experience any bugs or glitches FWIW.

Glad to hear all the positive reviews on the dlc here. Sounds like I'll enjoy it a lot. I bought the season pass when the game came out but I haven't downloaded the dlc yet. Waiting to play it with my nephew. I've now beaten playthrough 1 with two of my characters and completed a majority of the side quests though and I'm enjoying bl2 as much as I did bl1 for sure!

so sad

(X) is both open, pick up, and reload...I accidently misclicked and I Reloaded instead. My heart sank when I saw all the anarchy stacks run down from 121x to none.

incredible the different in dmg those stacks give. I am starting to see the synergies between the skill trees and how to work it w/anarchy though.

Can I kill him multiple times? Or are you supposed to kill him, see if he drops it, then dashboard if he doesn't?

I went and killed him and turned in the mission and I can go back and kill him. I've done it maybe 5-6 times so far and nada - well I think he dropped a green grenade mod once - most of the time it was nothing. I usually just do it once when I turn on the game but you can quit and start again and he'll be there. Now as for getting him to drop a bee for you - I don't know! I'm considering doing a serious farming session on him though because I want to see what this bee buzz is all about.

Turn in the quest in Sanctuary, exit the current game (not all the way to dashboard), continue game, and he'll respawn. Exit and continue as needed.

Edit: it took us maybe 5 hours to get the first one, and a second dropped 2 spawns later. It's roughly a 3% chance. I wouldn't bother unless you were 50.

Very quick and easy since his spawn point is right next to the fast travel where you begin. I farmed him for an hour or two and didn't get anything from him, but someone ended up duping me a Bee later on.
