    Yeah, I've seen items from higher levels, they scaling is stupid. I don't understand why they increased it so much at higher levels.

    And just a tip (pun intended). Don't tip too fast, I didn't know about the lower tip weapon. I knew only about the expensive one, so I tipped like 18k as fast as it would let me tip. And since she needs item to take out the weapon and show you, I got the Corrosive weapon only.

    The codes Randy posts on Twitter you go to Shift in game and put in the code. If you haven't set up your Shift account well setting it up will get you a key too :) I have been keeping up with these and have built myself up to 5 now.

    I finally used one tonight when I hit lvl 25 and got a nice Purple shield that drops a booster if I get hit. Still trying to figure out the best levels to use them. But your guaranteed at least a Purple of some sort.

    Eh it's no big deal, they seem to be handing out about 2 free keys every single day, I already got 4 stock piled within the last 2 days. So just sign up for Shift, and watch twitter or Reddit for codes. Though it does seem codes won't go out as often on weekends.

    I guess I'll probably be playing this soon, since I'm getting a new Nvidia card and most of the ones I'm looking at come with it. Never played the first one. It seemed like the kind of mindless arcade nonsense of games like Painkiller and Serious Sam I've outgrown at first glance, with cartoon cell shaded graphics I don't particularly care for. I just checked GameTrailer's review of BL2 though, and apparently it has a pretty decent story to follow and some funny stuff in it. So maybe it will add value to my purchase. Guess you have to play a game to really know one.

    Yeah the BL2 story is pretty good, and has memorable characters as well as good humor. Seems weird, a few people have posted in here now who haven't ever tried the first one, it was a great game.

    I haven't PC gamed in about 3 years now but However I did have a lot of fun playing BL on a PS3 several months back, Accuracy isn't as bad ass as it is on a KB and Mouse but overall I had fun. Once Things are good on my end I will be Getting both BL1 and 2 (too bad BL1 couldn't have had an expansion pack or update to BL2, make the game world 1 massive one.)

    (Other Games I feel need a Refresh- Deus Ex and Deus Ex Invisible war. HR was a Prequel to both iirc)

    Yeah I went through the same thing with Mass Effect. I didn't take an interest until the 3rd one where they changed it so you could play without all the conversation choices. I ended up playing all 3. I still like the 3rd the best, but now I play with full conversation choices.

    What's the deal with these temp keys being released? I assume they're for power-ups in mp? Seems like more of a social media chat gimmick to get people's interest than a practical game feature. I always thought you should have to earn your perks vs just grabbing them free.

    nice to see my 8800gt will still be useful when I upgrade (eventually) to a GTX660

    here's a few more to go with that...

    GPU Performance...

    PhysX Performance...

    and a link to the source http://www.techspot.com/review/577-borderlands-2-performance/

    looks like my cpu is gonna be quite the bottleneck until I can upgrade

    Doesn't seem to be much point to showing those benches. Clearly a mere cell shaded game doesn't have enough to it to offer more than a couple FPS difference at 1080p with a card costing nearly $300 more than the mid priced ones.

    Looks like I'll need to do a massive oc to run this game at a good fps on my new 480. Hope this game goes on sale soon, really want to play it.....

    $45 us? By the time I get it, it's 60 bucks. And I'd want a hard copy of it.
