    Just FYI, there is no non-Steam version of Borderlands 2 (on PC, duh...).

    Man... my PC was down all weekend. I missed out on a crap ton of codes it seems. :(

    if you REALLY want more golden keys and you missed out on the codes, just use a trainer.
    there are several trainers that duplicate the golden key the moment you unlock the chest. so basically you always have 1 key, but you can use it to infinity.

    Finished the game proper yesterday. (the first playthrough anyway)
    The game is funny to be sure and I'm having a good time with it (and I full well know that Mozi's around these parts to read this), but one thing that kept bothering me throughout is that context and exposition and relevant information kept getting told ambiently at times where I was hip-deep in shooting dudes, leaving me clueless as to why I was doing what I was doing. Couple that with the inability to re-listen to ECHOs or communication in general and you've got yourself a pretty annoying problem if you enjoy following the narrative thread in games.
    Still, playthrough 2, here I come.

    My most major bone of contention with it really has been how it likes spawning enemies right on top of you. All the time. In areas you cleared already only minutes ago.

    What's with the spawn points being reset after you quit the game?

    So annoying when you get far into a mission and have to quit, then you come back later and it spawns you all the way back at the very beginning, leaving you to fight the same endless horde of enemies that you already defeated. Ahhhhhh.

    yeah that's been pissing me off a little.

    it doesn't seem to matter how many checkpoints (save stations) you pass.
    if you quit your game somewhere in the middle of a zone, you will be placed all the way back at the beginning of the zone when you reload. even though you passed numerous save spots along the way that are much deeper into the map, you don't get placed at the last one you touched.

    common sense indicates that you should be allowed to start at the last save point you passed.
    nope.
    all the way back to the beginning every single time.

    As far as I can tell, the last FastTravel station you visited becomes your nearest spawn point.
    If an area doesn't have one, whatever save point is closest to the area entrance

    It's so it doesn't have to save the gamestate of an entire level at a time - which would be pretty colossal.

    The lack of replayable echo recordings really pisses me off. BL had it and it was a great feature, I don't know wtf they took that out.

    How does the 360 version hold up, regarding texture detail and framerates, compared to the PC version?

    I have a choice and I'm leaning towards the console version because of some people I know on Live and splitscreen with my brother. But if it's significantly worse I would get the PC version instead.

    They do need a way to re-listen to dialogue. Too much of the dialogue happens off ECHO devices, though.

    From what I have seen BL2 is 1 step forward and 3 steps back in a lot of things. Campaign is much much better but the UI, the lack of space, and other stupid decisions kinda keep it from surpassing the first game.

    All it has to save is my location. The enemies can be reset, I don't care. I just hate having to start from the beginning because some of the missions (wildlife preserve for example) are super long.
