@praxus07 - considering there is no official release date and ppl are generally saying Borderlands 2 could release sometime in 2013...4-5 years from now for a $20 price drop could very well be around the time it happens.

I understand where you're coming from though, there's plenty of games that I want to play but don't need to play day one. Especially after seeing how the price game is lately I wait for a lot of games to drop in price as well. I still haven't bought Starcraft 2 WoL...but I will when I'm finally done playing Diablo 3.

A rare day-one for me, I just hope the ending isn't as ludicrously unsatisfying as the first one.

...someone said it right before, Borderlands is about the journey not the destination. I'm not crazy about a lot of great games I've beaten, but I enjoyed the heck out of the gameplay up to that point.

also looking at the teaser video, it looks like there are "characters" with a story vs. a character you can create. i.e. there doesn't seem like there will be an option to choose fe/male etc.

Hopefully the Claptrap figure NECA announced back in October 2010 will be out by the time Borderlands 2 releases.

Lots more screenshots of a whole bunch of enemies and what looks like another class, the Siren.

Wow! Looking great, and I am liking the new Siren.

According a Gearbox dev on their forums, the new Siren's name is Maya and she will have a different special ability than Lilith's phasewalking.

Cannot wait for Borderlands 2. First one is one of my favorite games I have ever played.

Some good info about the game and interviews with Gearbox. The Gunzerker didn't sound too appealing to me at first but they revealed a couple of his skills and he sounds more appealing now.

Divergent Likeness - If you’re dual-wielding two weapons of the same type, you’ll deal bonus damage. Dual-wield weapons of differing types, and your accuracy goes up.

Down, Not Out - In the first Borderlands, no action ability was able to be used when you were on the brink of death. If you have this bonus activated in Salvador’s skill tree, however, he can dual-wield in his final moments.

Overheat - No matter what gun you’re using, its rate of fire will continue to increase as long as you hold down the trigger.

Down, Not Out sounds fantastic! I hope they have something like that for each of the classes! There were so many times that I was downed and the Action Skill would've been a huge help to me.

Overheat sounds good too. I am so stoked for this game.

Overheat sounds awesome in close quarters, I'd imagine the recoil and accuracy goes out the door once your finger melts and fuses to the trigger.

He's throwing the gun itself. You get a more powerful explosion based on how much ammo is still in the clip. Then you get a magical New-U copy of the same gun back. That's only for Tediore guns though.

Wowowow, it looks and plays just like the first game, except bigger, prettier, and crazier. This is exactly what I wanted from a Borderlands sequel. Hype level shooting through the roof.

I was thinking about the other classes today and I had a crazy thought for the Bruiser. Wouldn't it be awesome if the Bruiser class was a dude in a wheelchair, that when he used his power his wheelchair turned into a mini tank that could severely damage by running into things? Any climbing he'd have to do in game could be covered by him looking all jacked up on 'roids on the upper half of his body, like in the last game.

We get psycho crazy midgets, why not super strong/buff-tank-morphing paraplegics? I'm all for this, as you can tell. It'll never happen though.

I think the problem with the wheelchair vault hunter for normal play would be, getting into and out of vehicles, not enough wheelchair accessable areas...and platforming would just be impossible. a wheelchair boss on the other hand is totally something that could be in the sequal.

Regular cars are wheelchair accessible. The guy just hops out. Find away to attach it and you're golden. And platforming could be answered by ollie-ing in the chair. Quit killing dreams!

I like how Maya is Lilith with toothpaste hair. Haha.

I wonder if we'll get a sharpshooter class again. I first played as Lilith on the 360 and that was fun, but when I started it on the PC (and ultimately beat it and all the amazing DLC), I was Mordecai and I had a more exciting time playing as Mordecai as opposed to Lilith.

I think the thing I like the most so far is the diversity of the guns. Everything in Borderlands just appeared to look the same with a color swap. The game is also looking pretty sexy, too.

I hope they put more of an emphasis on role-playing this time around.

More? How about any? There was no roleplaying in the first game; it was just an FPS with stats and fetch quests.

when you mean more roleplaying in borderlands 2, do you mean speaking w/npcs and making choices that actually affect the outcome of the game?

otherwise, the pure entertainment factor that is borderlands will suffice...if I really wanted deep rpg elements I'll play a bioware game. (of course is borderlands 2 actually has some more rpg elements I probably won't notice over the sound of explosions and gunfire)

That would certainly be a good start, yeah. I'm not necessarily saying that Borderlands should have these things; I just think it's silly to refer to it as an RPG when it doesn't have the key elements of one.
