I messed around with the other characters but always found the Hunter to be the most fun to use especially once you upgraded Bloodwing all the way.
I never bothered with the Bloodwing. I focused on Gunslinger with a bad ass double fury and a corrosive revolver that ate things up pretty fast. Fun times!

That's what I liked about the game, you didn't HAVE to go one route with the characters but you could still succeed.

Yeah I agree. And with 4 different classes and a billion different items you could play and replay stuff all the time. I think I played through the campaign 5-6 times. I do agree with the whoever said they need to make some things a little harder. I am not too sure how you can make the 6th play through "fresh" but if they can figure that out they will have a huge following.

I am hoping they make the single-player experience a little more engaging. There were a lot of times I didn't want to play with random people, because they would either smash cars into each other nonstop, or speed-run through quests that I hadn't done yet.

Define engaging. I really like the Zombie Ned stuff if you were the correct level for the content. It had an okish/funny enough story and it somehow felt different than most of the original game. If they can make it at least *that* engaging I am ok with it.

I don't know, it just seemed like a lot of the same stuff over and over. It is annoying how you can't get the best weapons unless you play with 3 other people.

Are you getting this for PC?

Zombie Ned was beyond a cakewalk for me, don't think that area scaled & I was max level.

Yeah, I plan to get this on the PC. Hopefully this one is easier to customize than the last as well. I hated having to edit that willow config file.

I think more voice acting would go a long way. Instead of "hey hey there" then read about retrieving some guys leg from a skag, I would like "hey hey there, that damn skag has my leg, go git it fer me wouldja?"

I can see both sides of the writing vs dialogue debate. Good voice acting is more expensive and harder than good writing. So if given a choice, I would choose quality writing over even "good" voice acting. It'd have to be excellent voice acting close to something in a big budget title for me to see the merits of that. How the text is presented is also a big thing. The dumb computer terminals seemed odd in Borderlands, but it was mostly the text font that bothered me. I changed it as soon as I figured out how to.

However, I am aware that my opinion is the minority one. I am a old school RPG gamer at heart, and I could read text for days.

Why do you mean? I can't think of a single time that I played BL1 with 3 other live people, but never had a problem finding diesel guns.

At most, I'd play with 1 other person who was sitting next to me, and we made probably 15-20 armory runs. Like I said, never had a problem finding amazing weps, no matter how many ppl I played with.

I wonder if they patched that though? I played through the whole thing twice by myself, then I played a couple hours with 3 random people and found guns that were WAY better in just those few hours. I recall reading the same thing in some reviews, too.

the loot was scaled to the amount of people playing. the more people the better chance you had at getting better loot.

you could still find the best guns and equipment going solo, it was just a much lower chance.
