Such an upcoming badass game!

Love the accent and script from Hammerlock, really funny.

Can't wait to get it since this game has variety now in levels and enemies that isnt boring.

I am probably gonna go with either Salvador or Axton, leaning more towards Salvador.

Yes, got this free with my new graphics card. Looks like it's going to be well worth it.

I'm impressed they retained split screen

Looking as awesome as always. Potential GOTY here, more excited for dishonored, but this will definatly be a more "fun" experience, especially in co-op.

"Badass rank". lol


Still, the characters only have 1 active skill. Too bad...

In co-op that's all you want. You don't want to gather round for story time every time you accept a quest. You want to get your objective and get on with it.

Exactly. This game is like Diablo, you cannot have hours of boring cutscenes. This is a slasher, you are supposed to be slashing, not sitting around watching videos and listening to dialog, this is not Max Payne.

And if someone wants a game with a story, they should not bother with this one, but they should not criticize it either. Not every game needs a story.

Can't wait to play it.

I've never seen so much content in a video tell me so little. Literally every shot was less than 2 seconds in this entire mence-meat edited color orgasm. If there was no narrator, I'd of be even more confused.

They've said that the game is going to be more story-y, more dialogue and less writing. If you actually read Borderlands' quest dialogue there was some great stuff. But, it was still an awesome game. It's a fun ass game. It doesn't need a story, and don't expect this one to become a story driven experience all of a sudden.

A lot of it was stuff that was already known, but some of it like the grenade stuff was pretty cool to see.

Which is absolute garbage since I have a 6970 AMD GPU... However I may still have to purchase it.. It was my favorite game of last generation.. Who am I kidding I am going to pre-order it :'(
