I'm of mixed opinion.

The backstory begs for a more serious telling. Keep the frantic running and gunning style of play from the first with a bit more gravitas to the story and I'm sold.

Although if it's still chock-full of humor, that's groovy.

The first four posts adequately summed up my reaction.

[up][up][up] When the game's main draw is the crapload of guns, RPG elements and cartoony visual style and humor, I don't think the story really matters that much. But that's just my opinion.

[up][up] You said something vaguely negative about the first game. Therefore, you did not adequately conform to my viewpoint on it.

My hopes for the sequel? Third person viewpoint, fully customizable characters, and Melee weapons having a big focus. Complete with all the insane random generation the guns get.

If it has those three things i will buy five copies of the game at launch.

[up] By fully customizable, you mean down to appearance, right? Because I'm totally down with pointless customization. Hell, it got me to play City of Heroes and Brink.

Although yeah, the backstory seemed kinda forced in in the final product.

Yeah. If there's one fault that the original game had, it was forcing you to play one of four premade characters. They where just an artifact from the earlier and probably not as fun "Serious" build of the game anyways.

It's soemthing i want rectified. I want to recreate my Soul Calibur samurai sword-swinging Sarashi-stylin' girl squad.

I dunno. I think "CRITICAL, BITCH!" made up for it.

The humor in the first game did make up for apparent lack of depth. Plus, Nine Toes had such an awesome entrance despite being a pathetically weak boss.

He would've been a nice recurring character, I think.

Personally, I would want more story, because it leads to more opportunities for humor. When there are more story cutscenes, we can have a lot more clever dialogue.

Honestly, I played a lot of Borderlands, but eventually it just got repetitive. There wasn't nearly as much gun variation as they said, and it mostly boiled down to attachments and whatnot. Plus there was no equipment outside of weapons, which was a euphoric cockblock of sorts.

Equipment: Shields, class mods and health packs. ...yeah, more would be nice. But at leastt there were vheicles. That made life fun.

[up]Vehicle. Singular.

ALL OF MY MONEY. TAKE IT.

But seriously, more specific character customization would be nice.

And more weapons. Always love more weapons.

And whoever said melee weapons above, YES. Give them mods too. Acidic fists FTW.

Vehicles. Plural. But you do need the General Knoxx DLC to get them. I like the APC for just how totally cool it is, but I'm more likely to pick the speed buggy.

The big armored truck is decent, too, but isn't particularly fast. At least it has a decent boost reserve.

It's looking like it will be the cover story for the next Game Informer.

The September issue of Game Informer contains 12 pages of exclusive details and screenshots from Borderlands 2, and outlines the numerous improvements the developer has in store for your return trip to Pandora. Donít expect just a couple bazillion more guns this time around. Gearbox is introducing new and more diverse environments, smarter and more powerful enemies, and an improved mission system capable of delivering a better story. This and much more will be revealed in the story, as well as our full month of additional online content.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
