Exited to play it, but I only have 1 beef

The powers are all still crap, they are just slightly less crap

That said, I wonder if my 1-shot kill sniper build will still be legit >.>

I hated sniper rifles, they felt so useless. I maxed out 4 characters, and the hunter/sniper guy was by far the weakest of the bunch.

Definitely getting it. Possibly preordering for the free Mechromancer, because it looks epics.

i'm going to get it, just likely not for launch. still debating over playing as salvadore or maya first. zer0 doesn't interest me as much as mordecai did. hopefully that changes when i play the game.

gunslinger mordecai with a maliwan defiler can give lilith a run for her money. till you run into acid-resistant monsters (fuck you zombies)

I mained a Lilith combat rifle/SMG build, though I also had a rocket launcher and a revolver that had randomized element attacks. SMG was a Maliwan I think. Whatever the one that was high-element stuff. I think Roland was my best though. I had him set up to the point he was regenerating ~25 bullets/sec, so I never ran out of ammo.

maliwan hellfire? cause if so, that gun is seriously awesome. my lilith was set up with one of those and things just melted >.>

see, i never got into roland. i just couldn't find a niche i enjoyed with him. brick, though, was fun. hulk smash and all that jazz. still haven't tried him out with the rocket tree, though.

All criticals and damage

The amount of things I 1-shot was ridiculous

And them already having DLC is a slap in the face, this is a trend that the industry is walking a thin line on

On one hand, they can make more money off of sales and even pre-owned sales.

On the other hand, they are spending development time for the meat of the game on DLC, and passively losing customers

Meaning we both lose, they lose customers unwilling to buy DLC, and we lose content or the improvement of content

I'm not saying it's going to stop any time soon, but the better developers are going to make their DLC have a drive to buy, not just withheld/freshly developed maps/levels/classes etc

Sadly these won't be the lucrative developers...

I wanna play zer0 because I never got to play as Lilith >.>

Hellfire is the one, I think. 4x fire, whatever it was.

I used Roland in a support role mainly. Because eventually I fell in with a team who were just doing Crawmerax runs in p2.5 for pearlies, so acting in a support role benefits the entire group.

Brick was iffy for me. He was fun as hell to play, but due to needing to be up close more often than not, he felt weak, as by the time I actually reached an enemy I was already on ~50% health.

just to alleviate some of that frustration, the mechromancer isn't day one dlc. people that preorder just get first dibs (and free at that) when it launches.

and lilith was the top dps by far.

yeah, that makes sense. i was usually playing by myself.

my brick used shotguns >.> hunting shotguns. it got to the point i could use them better than a sniper rifle on him.
