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

    :nod All that other stuff was just over three years old(bought after the last methhead tax paid :baldy), 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. :lol3

    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. :dunno 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. :freaky

    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.

    New SHIFT codes up. Supposed to be good for 30 minutes. 22 minutes left as of this posting. Maybe less.

    I still always revert back to Battlefield Bad Company 2. You just can't beat it for online play. I don't like hearing other teams and kids talk. Just my teammates. And it tends to draw a more mature crowd.

    Bad Company 2 is still going online? I used to love that game, and the Vietnam expansion was fun too when I could find populated servers. The Battlefield 3 game that came out just wasn't fun for me. I tried sticking with it for a bit, unlocked all the weapons, but playing if felt like work vs. fun (among a few other reasons).

    I spend tons on the one armed bandits in moxxies and high spirit. After a few low yield win or a grenade, you win an exceptional gun or a load of eridium for carry upgrades. I've won both e guns and an orange legendary. Far better than buying Marcus crap and on par with some of the better hidden gun case finds.

    I have yet to win an orange gun on the slots. Only got triple-Marcus once (purple rocket launcher), and a few triple-legs that gave some decent blue guns. I was farming Michael Mamaril for a while because he was giving up some pretty good blue guns but he's pretty much disappeared after a certain mission.

    My friends and I gambled as a group. So every time we won Eridium it would be shared by everybody, got more for our money basically. I maxed out all the SDUs before I turned Level 22.

    I had 8 golden keys so I ended up using one on the chest. Got a pretty good burst-fire purple sniper and a high damage/high ROF/low recoil purple SMG.

    I just found out about a developer's chest in the Tundra map, gonna be farming that for more purple loot.

    Anyone in here have BF3 for the PC? Got an Asus G75V last week, and picked up BF3 to move away from console gaming...

    If anyone wants to play, add me on origin; tman186

    I do but I haven't played in several months. I don't think the other guy's I was playing with form ADV play it anymore either. I only found it fun when playing with friends with coms. IIRC, there are two DLC's for it now as well.

    50, the DLCs will probably raise the cap.

    I've got a Level 30 Assassin with most everything going to the Sniper branch. Before 30 you can really only go good in one branch, or sucky if you spread points through 2 or 3 branches.
