    Steamworks, Gamespy is gone.

    I think they had to do that. Not only is Steamworks better and the direction that Gearbox seems to be heading with all their PC releases. But Gamespy on BL 1 allowed people to play online without legitimate copies, and I can assume that wasn't what they had planned.

    Man that must suck. I would have rather gotten it on steam so you could just pre download it before release.

    Can't wait until midnight! I'll be at GameStop picking up my Ultimate Loot Chest(for PC of course)
    EDIT: And I'll be on tonight. Anyone who wants to join up for some four-player, shoot me a PM some time before 1AM EST(when I'll probably be getting home) and I'll send you my TeamSpeak and Steam info.

    No it doesn't. We don't live in the EU! Good times! :toast::laugh:

    I wasn't really looking forward to this game.. but I think I'll get it anyways.

    Is that place legit? I'm not bashing but seriously asking if anyone has bought from there.

    Looking forward to running a Jakob's Pistoleer again. Nothing beats roleplaying as Roland from the dark tower. Well, maybe roleplaying as jessica biel in powder blue. But those are completely different reasons

    cjs is great, and my first choice - but not always the lowest. a great site is:

    DLCompare

    which compares the prices from different cd key sites. they also make anonymous purchases testing each site's legitimacy. if it's on that site there is a good chance it's legit - i've shopped from 3 sites (on DLCompare) other than cjs and they all went fine.

    Well had a good time tonight, played with Ufgy and a few other friends. Then was just me and Ufgy and Haru joined us. Wasn't too happy about the Gunzerker, he looks a bit "special", till I put on this sweet helmet.

    Now I don't mind him so much.

    Also been screen capping all the cutscenes, BL1 they all made for great desktops, and here it's the same, I think Scooter takes the cake so far.

    I love the looks, but what is this game about? Quakefest? Serious Sam revisited? Or a story or something more?
