I'm the same way, that's why I'm thinking I'll use a key at 25, 35, 45 and 50.

I can always kite the old weapons to my other characters I guess.

BTW, avoid playing splitscreen in Borderlands 2. Numerous reports of a bug wiping out Badass ranks and Skins when you do.

I've played a bit of split screen with the kid, luckily my rank is still good. Thanks for the heads up. No more split screen for me.

Borderlands 2 is basically exactly as the 1st one, only with new chars, mobs and maps... Anyone who has played the first will feel right at home within seconds of play..

I started with the assassin this time, my crits are 1000+ and I'm lvl 13 atm, pretty much downing anything around my level with 2 crits, except badasses and bosses)... That W4R D3N gave me a hard time, I had no effective weapon on me for the job, I hate dying with 20k in the wallet and paying 2k at the resurrection machine.

I'm running max graph and the game is super smooth, I like how they manage to keep it lean while having great graphics (I like the cartoon style they made since the 1st installment).

I used the key before reading (just above) that timing the use of those keys is vital, was kinda surprised to see that I had gotten such nice weapons, even at the low level I was (I rushed reaching Sanctuary), oh well, my next weapon might be just around the next corner...

Generally I'm satisfied but I was expecting a bit more to be honest, you know, something new (I like the eridium purchases btw). I'm not complaining though, I'm having a blast so far

They grabbed all the electronics, jewelry boxes, and change jars, one flatscreen tv and took off. They left the xbox on the counter.
Police came by to take fingerprints and decided to just take the whole bag of stuff back to be checked for prints in a better environment. I resisted as last time, the stuff they took for evidence collecting I didn't get back for six months. They promised to work on it right away, and promised I would have it back no later than Friday. So no skyrim this week.
I'm sure they are "working on it" as we speak, don't be surprised if, when you get it back six months from now, you find your Skyrim char a few levels up with new weapons...

I like how you lost "electronics, jewelry boxes, and change jars, one flatscreen tv" and all you worry is about missing a week off Skyrim, it's like when you drop the bike and worry about the broken peg while having broken a few bones and bleeding through the ear...

This got me thinking about saving my games on the "cloud". Haven't used it yet but I think I might start.

All that other stuff was just over three years old(bought after the last methhead tax paid ), so it was all getting ready to be upgraded anyway. My current skyrim character on the other hand is only level 42, not nearly done with him yet.

Ok, Borderlands2 has it's hooks in me pretty bad. It kicks ass. Great story, the gameplay is good and it's not too easy. (common compliant of mine)

Couple of questions.

At lvl 25 now with my Commando..
1. How can you scale up the skill trees faster? At lvl 25 I'm only on the second tier of skills in each category, even some that are 5/5 do not "un-block" the next tier. I wanna get rockets for my sentry gun!!!

2. I've become fairly obsessed with finding Michael Mamaril. Finally found him at lvl 24 in Zeds OR.

3. I'm also obsessed with gear. Good shields/grenades and weapons make a huge difference. I was pissed that I can't get a key for the vault in Sanctuary in game, the only way is promotional crap on Twitter, etc.

So yeah, this game is cool as hell. When Sanctuary took off the ground my jaw dropped. WAY more story than the first one.

Sorry guys, thought that was for movies.

I guess Video games ARE movies, for the most part.

Strange. Putting 5 points into a tier should unlock the next.

Keep in mind you only get 50 skill points (maybe the DLCs will give you more). It's not possible to max out on each category. You can max out one category, but you'll only have a few points for the rest. You can either go completely badass on 1 category, or be mediocre in 2 or 3.

Lying no good POS cops....I don't care if there were two bank robberies this week to investigate, you were supposed to be done with my Xbox by today!
