    According to an article on Gamespot, Borderlands 2 is on its way through the certification progress and they have begun working on Downloadable Content for the game. First up is the Mechromancer character, which will be available free of charge if you've ponied up for a pre-order.

    Release is slated for September 18 in North America and 21 September for everyone else.

    So since they are working on their precious dlc, I am going to assume the game is 100% bug free and polished to perfection then?

    Hell who am I kidding. I will be waiting for a 75% off deal on most of the dlc anyway.

    Since we're making assumptions here, I'll go ahead and assume that Gearbox probably won't have every single person working on that DLC. Also, adding a fifth character will significantly increase the replay value of BL2 and that is never a bad thing. So if anything is worth my money, that would be it.

    Of course, I've pre-ordered already so i'll get it for free. :p

    Adding more characters is great. That would have extended the life of Borderlands even further.

    IMO, the big challenge Gearbox has on BL2 is "junk storage". If I can't store every last crappy thing I want to hang onto somewhere, I'm going to be annoyed.

    I'm sure as soon as it launches people are gonna see if they can mod their saves for boosted backpack sizes
    Tho I wouldn't be surprised if GBX locked that down

    With any luck, the "chest" that is shared between your characters will have either an unlimited size or just a massive size.

    I think I saw some screenshot of a bank vault, where marcus was behind the counter. I am thinking they'll give a bank storage with 50-100 (up-gradable) like with the Moxi DLC.

    Anyone finished the 20 rounds moxi ones? God they are freaking long, I soloed one of them, took a good 3 hours.... constantly asking myself why I talked myself into doing it.

    You cant make a game "100% bug free".

    Now, if it gets released and it's a broken piece of crap, that's something different.

    Why would you want something bigger than 100 slots? You keeping every piece of crap white you come across there Brizzy?

    Because collecting crap is a fun metagame? I have 200 backpack slots, and I could fill it up ten times over with all the stuff I've found that I would like to keep.

    I can appreciate a man's love for weapons, this is what dropping 500 (modded backpack) guns look like (all crawmerax loot). And I am not even counting the stuff I have on my 999 bank vault. :lol:

    Actually I would love a "Loot Hall of Fame Museum" for our characters, so we can tour through all the guns we ran across in-game.

    Heh, that is the only thing I haven't done in the game. It's just too damn long and mind-numbing. I did one of the smaller tournaments on solo modo, and that's when I decided that I wasn't going to solo through any of those things again.
