Thanks for the input. I've had the demo downloading but I wasn't sure if there were things in the game that aren't in the demo that caused issues for some people.



The demo runs you through a pretty representative sample of the game. The only major thing the demo doesn't do is driving (fairly standard GTA/SR3 type driving). That said I took taxis a lot (timesaver).

I have no clue, but those appear to be Borderlands 2 Shift keys.

EDIT: oh, Edgeterritory II = Borderlands II. It took me a few minutes to figure it out. This dispite the fact that I spotted the keys as borderlands 2 keys right away. What can I say, I'm an idiot sometimes. lol

What do you mean? To a redemption page on a website or something instead of in-game?

If you're talking about not being able to copy & paste it into the in-game redemption, all you gotta do is do Ctrl+C to copy & Ctrl+V to paste.

It looks like licensing with Hitman: Contracts will be sorted very soon.

I don't know, it comes out on Tuesday and I would of thought if they were bringing back vanilla Contracts to PC they would of done it on Hitman day on Steam. Since they had to rebuild it they probably just replaced the music with a different song and thus we are screwed out of a PC version. Such a shame as Traditions of the Trade (set in a hotel) is one of the most enjoyable missions of the franchise.

For sleeping dogs? Its there much of a collection or addictive element to the game? Say Vice Cities businesses or multiple safe houses? Cars to collect etc? Wealth to accum? I'm thinking of getting it. Is exploration rewarded?

I would say so. A lot of the achievements are based on collecting all the cars, amassing a certain amount of wealth, winning so much money in cock fights, and trying every food dish offered in the entire city. I enjoyed all those aspects of it.

It controls great with keyboard/mouse, although you may have to change a few of the key bindings around (I use a Logitech G700 and Logitech Setpoint which fixed any issues I had with the key bindings). The aiming accuracy with guns is perfect with mouse. They were good enough that they made me not want to play it with a controller.

I think you're being overly pessimistic. More factually, the PS3 & 360 HD re-release is certainly more $$$ important to them, and they wouldn't want to overshadow it by re-releasing the PC version of Contracts first. At this point PC version would certainly be more of an secondary priority/afterthought. At this point we don't even know if they re-licensed or changed the soundtrack, but we will soon. It was released on PC, so any avid fan can hunt down a used copy.

You can copy-paste Shift codes. Sometimes, you might have to use the keyboard to navigate to enter the Shift code, else the cursor doesn't show up.

Syntax Error

Posted 28 January 2013 - 06:50 AM

I've copied/pasted all of my codes but sometimes it's flaky, refuses to acknowledge my pasting and gives me an error.

One of these days I'll need to actually play BL 2 and not just collect Shift codes for it. Just wrapping up Borderlands now after it sat in my backlog forever.

Ha! Same here - I finished the main game three-four weeks ago (every single damn mission) and today finished the main missions and most of the side quests in DCL4 - and finally had enough of it. We're partying like it's 2009!

Lol I just started playing it about a week ago myself. Been wondering though if I'm missing something by not playing co-op.

I thought BL2 was pretty enjoyable (esp playing new game + with friends), but after beating TVH mode, I'm not sure I want to shell out for DLC. Is it really worth it? I know it was $7.50 at GMG before but I passed on that.

+1 for Borderlands. I really love it a lot, I just have one more DLC to play through but overall it's been a blast. I was thinking about picking up Borderlands 2 for $15 on the trading thread but I don't want to get too burnt out by it, so I figure my backlog should keep me busy until BL2 hits 5 or 10 bucks.

I really hated the lack of fast travel in the General Knoxx DLC, but everything else was just fantastic.

It's ok single player. Co-op makes it much more fun though. Not just with randoms, but someone you level with, that's on the same quests as you, and same level, etc.

Torgue (#2) is a good expansion in terms of story, and the equipment is good for explosive users. Hammlock (#3) is really really boring, and the new loot is horrible. Scarlett (#1) is mediocre, but you can farm gear in it like Knoxx.

That works? Tried it a bunch of times and it doesn't for me. Odd.

Yeah, it works. If you're running into trouble doing that, make sure you didn't accidentally copy an extra space at the end of the key. I don't know why, but sometimes there is a space at the end that gets copied by mistake. Also, I sometimes have to hit Ctrl+V a couple of times for it to get entered into the key field.

It's a hell of a lot easier than writing the codes down and entering them manually. I would have given up ages ago withe the shift keys if Severose hadn't clued me in to the Ctrl+V method of pasting the keys.

Yeah, I gave up on that DLC around half-way for that reason but there's a mod for fast travel if you're interested:

I second this. It is very very easy to copy an extra space either in front or behind the shift code from CAG. I think maybe it's the forum or something, but even one space doesn't let you paste it. So you have to be very careful you don't copy any spaces. Then you can paste it easily. Sometimes I copy and paste using the Steam browser since it is easier to give it a second go if I messed up.

Usually, what I do is copy it from the post, then paste it into the "Quick Reply" box at the bottom of the page. Then I copy it again from there.

I find it easier to see if I'm copying the space when I copy from the Quick Reply area.
