    Damn, I'm on PS3. I think the siren, the soldier and the mechromancer are the the best ones to play, but it seems in the coop play each character in the game brings something to the table worth having.

    Zero is one of the most lethal characters in B2. I had great success playing melee zero until Level 35 or so in the second playthrough, then everything was a bitch to kill. But before that my friends would complain because I would kill everything before they'd even get there. I was literally dealing millions in damage with Killing Blow. Many must fall was awesome because you can pretty much line all the bad guys up and chain the kills together. In Fink's Slaughterhouse I would literally cut down half the bad guys in the room all by myself.

    If you want some assist you can always friend me and drop me a message on XBL (same username) if I'm on. I'm mostly playing Planetside 2 these days but if I'm vegging on the couch I'm down for some Borderlands. I have 2 Level 50 characters, and some lower level ones. I think I have like 7 characters to store all the Legendary guns. :rofl

    Oh, I also have like 35 Golden keys still that I have no use for and I'm willing to share, you just have to be close to the same level as whatever character I'm going to unlock the chest with.

    You might be going a bit too fast, try getting some lower level quests at first (stick to the green ones) and keep in mind what your hero's abilities are and act accordingly, Zero is a sniper, get close to the enemies and they will make quick work off you.. Lvl 18 is very low level to get epic drops, you will start to see better stats on the weapons as you move on and very soon you will have a hard time choosing what to leave behind.. Some bosses will give you a hard time, they're supposed to do that anyway but game designers really went to town with some...

    I went back and started as Axton, it's going much better, I'm actually having fun. I usually play stealthy,"Thief" style but that didn't seem to work, so now it's turret out and pick-em off while they're distracted :D

    As he said though, you still want to make sure you do as many side quests as possible. If you don't level up your guy you won't be able to use the good guns. When I went through the game I figured this out as the guns I was picking up from guys I was killing were a higher level than I was, meaning I could not use them.

    Doing all the side quests I can. I'm paying closer attention to the mission levels and trying be a couple of levels above them. Also the gun stats can be misleading, I've had better success with some of the lower DAM rated ones, didn't even try Flint's tinderbox the first time, but it's more lethal than it's rating would have me believe.

    Hey Thanks! However, my friends went ahead and bought Dirt Showdown, so I did as well. I have only played once so far, but so long as you are playing with friends it looks like it will be fun.

    Lots of laughs and trash talking :deal

    Yeah, I did that back in November.
    Now I made the mistake of picking up where I left off on my second play through on New Vegas. I found the spot where you can jump through the normal map edge and walk around to get up to the spaceship. :norton

    Should you preorder videogames?

    I typically do not, unless these two caveats are met: 1) It has to be a game I have been looking forward to, and not one that I just heard about and said "Oh, cool." 2) The press or at least popular gamers have to have a pre-release copy and have given it high reviews.

    If those circumstances are met, then I may pre-order. Typically, there is no incentive to preorder and with the sometimes sporatic download speeds of the DSL at my house it is easier to just stop by Wal-Mart on the way home from work on release day.

    The reason for the above is that I just do not sit around and play games all the time. The games I play I typically get into pretty well, I just do not have time to get fully immersed in every blockbuster that comes out. I think I have played 4 games in the past year, but have really enjoyed them all.

    I'm usually one who waits for reviews too. There were only two games last year that I preordered, Borderlands 2 and Dishonored. Just the other day I pre-ordered Grand Theft Auto V from Gamestop. I tend to pre-order games that I'm really looking forward to, franchises and developers and studios who I know are going to do a great job (Bethesda, Rock Star, etc.).

    Mostly I just look at game magazines when I'm in the can and see what catches my eye. If there's an interesting/decent preview, I'll keep an eye on it. If it gets good reviews, I'll buy it, usually after it's already out.

    Not unless it's something I know I'm going to buy, anyway. Any of the Halo or Gears of War, or Dead Space franchises, for instance. You can usually get some kind of free in-game shwag like maps, weapons, or armor for pre-orders these days.

    The only game I pre-ordered in the last 10+ years was NHL 12, and I'll do it again for 14.

    I got Borderlands 2 for 25 bucks on black Friday (on Amazon so I still got to be lazy :clap) and Assassins Creed 3 for free with my video card. For games like that there's no real reason not to wait for deals in my opinion. Borderlands 2 was borderline with it.....but everyone I know is so obsessive with that game that they are willing to make new characters whenever I get around to playing it.

    NHL is different since I have 4 friends who get it the day it comes out and when we play together it's always on the newest one. The transitions in game play from 11 to 12 to 13 were big enough where you'll have to spend the 1st period just readjusting and messing up non-stop.

    Still on the main game, I put it in every few months and binge for a few days.....then realize I need to be at least a semi functional member of society :lol3

    There are other games like the Assassins Creed series and Borderlands being 2 that I will just play for a ridiculous amount of time, but Skyrim is something else. Time just seems to fly by while I stare at the screen.
