Borderlands 2
The preload is available on steam now for those that pre ordered it.

for some odd reason its only 4.6GB? smaller then I expected, I wonder if its either compressed or if they are gonna release it in chunks to prevent trying to crack it.

Preloading is basically downloading the game files in an encrypted state, and only Valve has the decryption keys.

So I don't really know if splitting the preload process is necessary because pirates or their suppliers can't even decrypt it in the first place. At worst when the game is released they would have to simply download the rest of the game and then upload it to various private FTP's / Topsites.

At that size I really hope you're right Nite, or they just decided to use the best compression they could find.

I really hope this game is better than the first.

Hopefully picking this up on release day, really hope I can. All depends on tonight I guess.

Played for about an hour and a half. I found the first one repetitive and the storyline boring, this one's no different.

I like the amount of settings they give you though, more games should have the same.

Yeah it's a Borderlands game, so if you don't like the first one this one won't be any different.

If you liked the first title, then you'll enjoy this because it's better in basically every possible way.

It's goddamn amazing. Trying out the Assassin character cause he seems pretty different. Fun so far.

Jay 09-20-2012 12:42 PM

I wish I could enjoy it :(

I wondered where you guys were :P game released 3 days ago and I didn't see any discussion until now on here, I'm already up to level 22 and loving it so far

Barely started and was getting indoctrinated once again into the glorious graphic style

Nite 09-20-2012 02:52 PM

I posted a few screenshots here, so far its the best looking area of the game I seen

I might have another session after work tomorrow, maybe if I stick to it I'll enjoy it more.

Are you playing alone? I hated playing the first one alone but it was pretty good when with a group.
Didn't get the 2nd one though.

Borderlands is the type of game where you really don't need to pay attention to the 'story'

Just put a playlist on, and run and gun.

I'm playing borderlands 2 in single player just fine, hard in many parts but it wouldn't be fun without a challenge. Just be sure to work on the side missions as you progress the storyline you need the experience points to make it easier.

The game is suppose to scale the enemys depending on the number of players too, the more players on the server the harder the enemys and the better the loot
