That's pretty much the part of the game I'm in for my characters, sans a level 12 Mechromancer I started when playing with a friend. Going through the whole game with her twice over doesn't bug me so much as having to do the Fight for Sanctuary pack twice in a row for my existing ones.
Also, Death Road to Sanctuary.

I'm doing the DLC as Krieg in UVHM, but I'm stuck on Uranus. I can't tell if my guns are crap or if he's just ridiculously powerful in UVHM, but my standard tactic of "run in and axe it to death" doesn't work since Uranus inta-kills if you get in stomping range.
Sung Won Cho seems to be getting into voice acting given that he also played a role in Ok K.O.!.
If you do melee Krieg, you're gonna have a very bad time against Uranus. You'll have to go for firearms in that robot's case, I'm afraid.
Hooooooooo man have I got stuff to tell you.
Which is to say he's got VO credits since 2011.

Which will be news to me since I never played those games/watched those videos.
Are there any shift codes hidden in this trailer? Iím assuming the rest of the Community Day skins are going to be part of 3ís promotion and I donít want to miss any.
The 2011 Ace Attorney listing isn't an official role; he voiced that character in the Fan Translation. In fact half of those credits are for various short-lived zero-budget webseries being erroneously listed as TV shows.
I'm not saying he isn't a rising star in VO, because he is and I'm a fan, but IMDB isn't the best source to cite for... anything, honestly.

Yeah here's a better one from the man and the legend himself.
In professional terms, a show he was in released first in 2013 and a video game in 2014. So, nonetheless, the man's been paid for voice acting for quite a while, though I certainly agree his roles have been rather low-key compared being a Borderlands VH. HAIL PROZD
The 2013 Wild West-themed skins are already being circulated again as part of the promos, their new shift codes are already on.

So fun event happened.
I did a poetry class this semester for Summer A, professor was really fun & likable. So when haiku's were brought up I showed her a video of Zer 0's voice-lines cause the guy only speaks in haiku's.
She loves it and him too. She was very amazed that all his lines were exact perfect haiku's, 3 lines with 5-7-5 syllables and found them all being badass boasts hilarious, especially when I explained the Second Wind mechanic when explaining his second wind lines.
She found his character concept awesome and offered absolute praised to the writers for successfully using haiku's and poetry so well to add to Zer 0's overall character.

Lovely! Lovely! I'm very glad Zer0's haikus turned out to be truly accurate all along.

So I got the Handsome Collection on sale and am playing through 2 for the first time. I'm playing solo because my internet connection is a trash fire. What levels should I start doing the various DL Cs at? Should I just complete the main story first?
If I'm not mistaken(been a while) the recommendations are:
Pirate's Booty levels 15-30.
Campaign of Carnage levels 15-30.
Big Game Hunt levels 30-35.
Assault on Dragon Keep levels 30-35(after main story).
Fight for Sanctuary levels 30-35(after main story, after Dragon Keep and after Tales from the Borderlands).
I think that was the way it was.

And all the holiday themed ones and the Peak scale, right?
Big Game Hunt is also after the main story. However, if you ask me personally, I'd do the main story first and all of its sidequests, then do the DLC packs in release order. Because there's nothing worse than dividing your attention between the main story, Captain Scarlett's Booty, and Torgue's Campaign of Carnage. I learned that the hard way.
If you must deviate from the release date order, do Dragon Keep before Big Game Hunt, as the weapons found in the former may make going through the latter a hell of a lot faster and easier.
Are all of them out? I could previously only find three of them, and it does look like a fourth has been added.
They seem to come at a rate of about one per trailer for Borderlands 3.

So, given the side mission Claptocurrency in the new DLC for BL2, it looks like Pitchford absolutely refuses not to be a petty douche at any point in the news cycle before the game comes out.
For context, the mission has you helping Claptrap with a moneymaking scheme, which fails... and ends with Claptrap on his metaphorical hands and knees, crawling back to Lilith to beg for his old job back in self-debasing fashion. Given production timeframes, I feel like it was probably started before the whole matter came to light... but all that means is that the mission was going to be a petty targeted shot that nobody playing the game recognized as one, instead of a petty targeted shot that is very obvious.
I'm feeling better and better about my decision to wait BL3 out.
....the Borderlands people put a mission into their newest DLC in which Claptrap does something stupid and short sighted, and this is bad.
It's that pesky Reality Subtext thing.
Wait Claptrap admited he did something wrong?
Has he ever done that before?
Damn you reality.
Edited by slimcoder on Jun 24th 2019 at 1:12:56 AM
I know right? It's not even in character for Claptrap to admit he made a mistake / is a mistake.
I think the only time he's ever admited fault was in the Pre-Sequel Claptrap DLC & that was also the only time Claptrap & his issues weren't Played for Laughs.
I do hope Claptrap gets some better treatment in 3. He's annoying, sure, but his behavior is ultimately no worse than an Annoying Younger Sibling. Responding to him more harshly than that would honestly just come off as plain cruel. Not to mention the Reality Subtext behind what happened to his original voice actor.
The moment where he pleads for forgiveness is given the objective "Watch This!" to boot.
I think what bothered me more is the fact that the entire Children of Helios tribe is killed offscreen (Sans Vaughn), and treated as a joke. Ontop of Vaughn himself feeling like more of a pathetic joke than he was at the end of Tales. It's not just the fact that leading the Hyperion workers to form a functional society was a great cap to his character arc in Tales, it's that Tales From the Borderlands, particularly Rhys' storyline was written as a way for the Telltale writers to vent about the horrible work conditions they were enduring. The storyarc of Rhys and the Handsome Jack A.I was about dealing with and overcoming an abusive boss, ending with him literally ripping his abusive boss out of his head. I feel like the Children of Helios uniting under Vaughn (a formerly low level worker who had been abused by their shitty system as well, before he grew up and learned to survive on his own) and coming out happier was a further extention of the Telltale staff trying to vent.
So for them to be all killed off for what feels like a laugh, ESPECIALLY when someone like Randy is in charge of Gearbox, feels like such an insult to that whole story. Maybe it wasn't intentional, but either way it was such a shitty turn for that character.
