    I enjoyed Zombie Island for the most part. Knoxx was just golden though.

    Heh, that reminds me. Some Gamespy owned website gave BL2 a horrid review and there was a comment that since GBX dumped Gamespy for Valve, that's why it's getting a bad review, GS is butthurt

    Stupid questions below. I preordered this game knowing nothing about it.

    Does multiplayer follow the same campaign as single player? When you join a multiplayer server, do you just jump into a campaign in progress? In other words, you may join a random server and find yourself at the beginning, middle, or end of the campaign? And what happens when everyone quits? Does it just pause the game at that point? Is it a persistent game world as long as the server is up?

    If the host leaves, you'll disconnect as well.

    Not withstanding any changes from BL, it uses matchmaking and listen servers. If it was a competitive game it would be considerably feature starved but this method works very well for linear coop (see also: Dead Island). It's more of a persistent character. While the host's progress delegates what missions are available, completing any get passed to clients as long as they're not skipping sequential missions (main arc).

    So Mozi, you named one of the characters after me. Do you have a forums crush on me? I can't blame you, it's hard not to fall for my posting.

    Lobby system is broken. No one can join me nor can anyone else join anyone :( Mozi get off your ass and fix this shit.

    Love Toilet :)

    EDIT: Lol so apparently some of my friendos got in by forwarding ports. Of course that didn't work for me but the point is didn't Gearbox say no more port forwarding? You guys are lucky the game is badass going solo or I would so TP your house.

    There's also issues with the Premiere Club/preorder bonuses
    Some are seeing them listed in Steam while not ingame. Others are getting them.
    I for one haven't seen jack but supposedly BestBuy is supposed to email me the code for the bonuses in the next day or so
    Facking hope so...

    Totally.

    Freaking.

    Awesome!

    I don't know why you guys were having issues with people joining. I had someone in my game before I ever even started and we played for two hours. I also had Mozi join and some other dude Mozi knows.

    So far my only complaint is the menu. It is a bit streamlined from BL, but it is still ridiculously confusing to use. Maybe I just need to get used to it.

    Also, limited backpack/storage space :((((((((((((((((((

    People on the steam forums are saying you have to sign up for a shift account. This does not bode well with me as I thought preordering was good enough, but now I need to remember yet another username and password?

    Le sigh

    It isn't just us Brizz. Check the steam forums and Gearbox's. They obviously didn't test the matchmaking system and it is showing. If they stated in their little "love letter" that we shouldn't have to forward ports, then we shouldn't have to forward any damn ports. Its funny because I didn't have any ports forwarded for the first game and I was joining that just fine.

    Yeah joining in and out is very easy. You cans see who all is playing BL2 and on what quest on the main menu.

    Back pack upgrades can be bought in Sanctuary. Patience young grasshopper.
