    I really am, I’m quite hype right now.  I don’t think I’ve been this hype for a game since Skyrim.  Granted, that was only a year ago, but I think that was the last game I kind of lost sleep over due to being so excited for it.

    Anyone else already picked their role for their group?  I ended up being the Siren again, no problem with that though, I ‘like’ being the one who deals most of the damage and gets all the crits.

    ACTUAL TRAILER COMMENT TIME: I liked it and it continues to solidify that they’re ACTUALLY going to put in some quality writing this time and not save it all for some expansion pack.  Don’t get me wrong, the original game was very enjoyable…  But Secret Armory was what the game SHOULD have been all along writing wise, as aside from Tannis’ journal logs and occasional messages from Claptrap and new haven townies, there wasn’t a whole crapton of humor like there was in Secret Armory.

    Well, now that I see Handsome Jack in action, I kinda feel that he is a worthy foe to go up against; funny and cocky. Makes me wanna take him down!

    The story and writing got a major upgrade in BL2.  I’m kind of impressed.  Now, I’m gonna wait for the game of the year edition.  The new playable characters/classes as well as the plethora of announced DLC made me decide this.

    I did the same thing for BL1 and Arkham City.

     Wow. I love his voice and personality. Perfect for the role. He sure is mysterious. Stapled face and what not.

    I like him already! Can’t wait. :D

    I’ll be waiting for the reviews to come in and let me know what the ending is like.

    Yes yes, I know that the majority of the fun in Borderlands is to be had with the thousands of guns and constant action, and I did like that part. I just want to know if I should prepare myself for yet another massive anti-climax ending, is all. So I know I shouldn’t get my hopes up in that regard.
