    [​IMG]Captain Scarlett and her Pirate's Booty, the second Borderlands 2 DLC to be released, will launch on October 16. The Mechromancer DLC, which was just released, is free to all of those that pre-purchased Borderlands 2 ($9.99, if not) and the 'Booty' DLC is the first of four coming to those that own the Season Pass.

    Captain Scarlett has set out to create a tropical paradise on Pandora, but has succeeded only in attracting pirates.

    That was quick. I still haven't bought this game yet. I might finish BL1 first and buy BL2 as my holiday season treat.

    Captain Scarlett?

    I thought this was Captain Scarlet:

    Still find it funny that the price is the same as a single skin.

    Anyway gonna wait till this drops to sub $5 bucks because honestly I have only seen one dlc(knoxx) that was even worth the asking price.

    I am hopeful that Gearbox isn't going to be dropping any Moxxi's arenas into the Season Pass package. I'm thinking not since they are calling all four of the DLC "campaigns". Plus they already have that Gamestop exclusive arena to throw out there at some point. I paid $20 or so for the thing on sale, so I feel pretty good about that.

    Regarding Borderlands, yeah Knoxx was easily worth the asking price. Zombie Island and Claptrap weren't too bad but nowhere near as strong.

    I think calling Mechromancer a "skin" is a little harsh though. It's a fully fledged new character.

    This is coming out surprisingly early...I haven't even got through the base game yet.
    I'm playing through it slow and collecting as many of the badass items from each area that i can hunt down.

    I'm waiting to see if there's a level cap increase or not, or at least more damn backpack space.

    I'm just glad for the timing; it's perfect. I'm about half way through my second playthrough and some new content would go a long way :)

    This is easily one of my biggest gripes. Or at least more space to store them in the bank.

    I understand that having an enormous backpack means that you're probably just going to run around like a vacuum cleaner, picking up guns without ever really paying much attention to them, but I like to collect unusual guns. Give me someplace to keep all those unique guns I find! Half the crap in my backpack isn't being used, it's just there because I like the gun.

    I've not had a problem with the backpack size at all. I barely monitor my inventory until I'm either out of space of nearby somewhere I can sell stuff, and it's usually the latter.

    My mind boggles if you're running out of space in the bank D:

    Between everywhere you can store things you get 47 spaces.

    47!

    In BL1 you got 72, I had my save hacked to get 200 and I kept that mostly full of guns that I liked. Considering how much of an issue backpack space was in BL1, it boggles my mind that they REDUCED it.

    There are three elements, six gun types, grenades, shields, relics, and class mods. I like to have the right weapon/shield/mod for the job. Do the math!

    And then you have the fact that I like to collect unique guns...

    People bitched about backpack space in BL1, so Gearbox lowered it in BL2.

    Keep bitching guys and BL3 will have half that :)

    BL3: Start with 4 weapon slots, 1 shield slot, 1 grenade slot and that's it

    how the hell do I access this DLC? For whatever reason, I thought it would be like in Fallout where you just got it and then when you started up the game, you could do it. I know it's a simple thing, but I've looked all over... ??

    You can do it at any time, just fast travel to Oasis. I'd advise not going there unless you're level 50, since the DLC enemies and drops will be scaled to whatever level you started at.

    That on TVHM? Because on Normal mode they are about level 30 and I can walk all over them.
