    Pre-order on Amazon is $50 right now(No Creature Dome, but meh)

    And it looks like they released some info on the pre-order bonuses
    Premiere Club - Pre-Order bonus includes:
    The Golden Key - "Unlock a rare item in the mysterious Sanctuary Loot Chest."
    Vault Hunter's Relic - "Play solo or team up with friends and boost your gear hunting fortune with the Vault Hunter's Relic."
    Gearbox Gunpack - "A package of unique Gearbox Golden Guns to help you start your journey on Pandora."


    There's also a lot of info here: http://borderlands.wikia.com/wiki/Borderlands_2
    For one, using elemental weapons on enemies of the same element type will result in severly gimped damage instead of the BL1 standard of "beat the crap out of them with bullet damage"

    The best part is the comic book DOWNLOAD. They put all that shit in there, and you have to download the comic book. What?

    Borderlands 2 is available for preorder on Steam now, and this weekend they're doing 10% off preorders if you own the first--that alongside the 4 pack bonus means that if people here wanted to do a divvy, it just a smidge over $40 each.

    I have a copy of Borderlands for the 360 and since I won't preoder it because I'm broke and won't have the PC to run it, can anyone use it for the preorder discount?

    Anyone getting this but haven't preordered it yet? I'm going in on a 4 pack, it'll be $45 each instead of $60.

    I snagged it through Green Man Gaming already - $29 after discount, promo code, and trade-in of a couple of free games they'd handed out.

    I got it for $10.69, mostly because I had 2 gift cards for BestBuy totalling $55 (fucking extra $5 in taxes and bullshit)

    Randy Pitchford's gaming sessions were pretty awesome, revealing some gameplay aspects (including an early version of the Mechromancer [which is as of yet untextured and untested]) as well as some customization options/menus, among other things. I look forward to this game, I really do.

    it's like Battlefield 3 Premium where they promise you exclusive premium content and the first release is a DOWNLOAD book containing artwork. lame. at least the comic can be read.

    also, Vaskadar, please stop posting all those awesome vids. I want the game NOW, even if I have to beat a homeless person senseless :mad:

    I bought the four-pack on Steam and was able to sell two of the three extra copies for $50. Total out-of-pocket for BL2: $16.50.

    There's a few new videos section from the PAX event, mostly the repetitive dome arena thing all over again , but thankfully there was a single player section:

    [m]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgoEwb5C3As[/m]

    [m]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qVInCLFxhSo[/m]

    If you must see the arena vids, this same user uploaded them for our convenience (The PAX video is 4 hours long, it has ~1 hour of borderlands).



    Assumptions. They're most likely unlocked from badass challenges or dropped from bosses.
    There are a thousand skins in the game (mostly the same skins with different color schemes)
