    Game looks amazing and will be amazing. The only thing that is stopping me is the inevitable GOTY edition.

    BLA1NE wrote:^This. happy Looks to me like you can make Zero's melee strong as hell, and when you chain melee kills while deception is active you can prolong it. Seems like an interesting and fun way to play. But if I don't go the melee route, the sniper one was my next choice. I'm just not that fond of snipers, though, unless there are some semi-auto ones with relatively high rate of fire. So if I don't go Zero melee, I'll go with Salvador and tank!

    I think there will be plenty of high fire rate snipers. Most Hyperion and S&S snipers were pretty snappy, and combined with the skill tree and class mods, Mordecai was capable of some epic DPS and from a safe distance. I'll probably go the Zer0 route because of that familiarity but I like your approach to melee only. They definitely expanded upon Mordecai's poorly mapped melee skills. Will lean towards hybridizing and hoping that I don't have to focus on one over the other to feel combat mastery.

    Really resisting the urge to play with those skill trees, kinda want to discover this on my own. We may need our own forum subsection just for this game tongue

    That's a great idea! I'd probably be in there a lot until PtD comes out for consoles. We could organize co-op, exchange strategies, arrange trades... Or we could do all this in the off-topic section and just flood it with Borderlands talk! silly

    Ha, as much as I'd like to make one, we will have to keep it all restricted to the official thread. But we will do our best to make it feel like home!

    I'm really excited to get this. Also, purposefully not gameplanning my char build because half the fun is playing around with skills as you go. There'll presumably be a skill reset option somewhere anyway, like last time.

    Is anyone getting this for PC? 'coz it's gonna unlock for me in just under 10 hours and it'd be fun to play with someone.

    Can do. I actually just wrote a review for Guild Wars 2 for the same reason.

    nice my build is focused on reducing the cooldown of phaselock and then applying all the elemental effects i can to that so that while im phasinglocking and drawing enemies into it.... im not only killing them there to trigger Blight Phoenix but my elemental chance is high and my acid cloud is doing that too!

    Sorry about the double posts, but I feel it's warranted. From what I've played so far, it's certainly Borderlands. The gunplay feels great, I think better than the first. The weapons already have more variety than all of the weapons in 1, and it's not exclusively desert! I've only played as Zero so far, and I'm only level 4 so I can't use any skills yet, AND I haven't gotten an opportunity to use a sniper, but I may switch to another class for more in-your-face deathing.

    Also, more character customization (skins, heads), looks great, and more Claptrap if you like it.

    Sweet my buddies had already picked the gunzerker and commando so i had to choose and i dont really like snipers to much so i figured i would try the siren out. The healing i think will come in handy greatly for those tougher encounters and im still doing my fair amount of damage

    Agreed. If you guys played Borderlands you might have overlooked the Siren's Phasewalk tree. In it you get Rapid Cool Down, 7% health regen per second of phasewalk, and massive shields. So on my level 36 Firefly I have shield of in excess 1200 and 70% health regen every time I use Phasewalk.

    God that makes it clearly the best class!
