Yeah, I saw double XP promos and that was enough for me to decide not to buy.
Gearbox is rolling out new updates. Details for each of the platforms are here.
I saw that yesterday - they're finally fixing the bug with reset Badass ranks, and even restoring the ranks of those who lost them. Good Guy Gearbox makes it right... eventually.
Oh, btw, the next DLC pack was just leaked: Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt.
The Borderlands 2 season pass is going to be on sale on the 27th as part of Microsoft's holiday sale. I don't know what the discount will be (given the usual sales, I guess five bucks) but I will finally be buying.

Thanks! And I see from Lokust's link on the previous page that there's a new code from a youtube video:
I'm up to 21 keys now. I should probably use some of them.
Promo for the next DLC, coming out on 1/15/2013:
I am planning for January to be my , ALL BORDERLANDS 2 DLC month, so this works out perfectly!
I haven't touched any of the DLC since finishing the game. :(
Okay, Zer0 getting a "tooth glint" was pretty damn funny.
Me neither :( I stopped playing when my group fell apart, and have been enjoying other games.
OK how does the season pass work? Do I just get to pick 4 dlcs I want and then have to pay regular price for any others?
The season pass is a bundled deal of the 4 DLC episodes that Gearbox currently has planned for the game, two of which are out already ( captain scarlet, mr. torgue) and the other two with one scheduled for January. At full price, the season pass would save you $10 on the DLC, but if you can find it on sale, that would be better.Any other DLC that Gearbox puts out is not a part of the season pass which the main one out now would be the mechomancer character class.
A sale on the season pass is my biggest Steam Sale wish since my Secret Santa got me Dark Souls.
Oh, then I dont think ill be buying it and now regret my purchase of the game.
Wasn't the Mechromancer just a regular DLC update?
Mechromancer was free for anyone who pre-ordered BL2 and it also became available to buy at the same time when it was released.
Oh, didn't know that, it just sorta showed up with a patch so I didn't realize it was a pre-order bonus.
Today is the Xbox sale day for Borderlands 2, with the full game available for $40 and the season pass available for $22.50. Chatter in the bargain thread suggests the major digital distribution sites all have the PC version for $30 and the season pass for $15. I would expect the same to be one of Steam's daily deals in a half hour.
Edit: Or not.
It was $30 on Steam during the first two days of the sale and was on sale again last night when I looked. Not sure about the Season Pass.

Is this game fun even if you don't have people to play with or most of the people who love it are doing co-op?
I think it's pretty fun, but I also think it's still more funner in co-op.
I played it co-op a couple of times. I like it better alone.
I've enjoyed it alone, but had a great time popping into a few games with other BF/Qt3ers when they were on and the game was first released.
Also, just got the Mechromancer through the GMG sale. Holy crap, once you get Anarchy going you're unstoppable! I simply sailed through the first part of the game and reached sanctuary in probably a 1/3 of the time it took me with my Zero. Now I just need a fast shooting weapon, that reloads quickly and has a small clip to build up the bonus quickly!
I would say it's most fun in co-op (for me) but it'll still be enjoyable if you solo. Claptrap doesn't get any less hilarious when you're playing on your own - story content and characters are great regardless. The actual gameplay could get a little tedious without some friends to liven it up, but I'm guessing that varies wildly from one player to another.
Does anyone know if a Deathtrap with the apply shield to ally ability in the BFF tree will apply the shield to its owner, or just other allies (ie, useful only in multiplayer)?
I believe it shields you as well. I do know it used to be bugged and shield enemies as well. Test it <3
It picks the person with the lowest shields, I believe. But yes, it will recharge your own shields, as well as your allies shields.
Anyone here have a Level 50 Conference Call and/or a Bee Shield? Wanna help a sister out?
I have both, but on Xbox. :( (Which is rife with duped CCs -- I think I'm one of the few people I know who actually got theirs as a legit drop.)
I'm on Xbox. :) (Shoulda made that clear.) Where did you get the CC? Warrior?
I don't think so, but I honestly never remember where anything drops for me. Or where I park. Or where I'm going most of the time. I'm pretty sure it wasn't a Warrior drop, though, because I didn't find out until later that it was apparently pretty rare outside of that encounter (and it's not a boss I run on a lot past 50 on any character).
You're more than welcome to it, if we can ever manage to get ourselves online at the same time. (Wish BL had a mailbox.) I haven't played in ages (or even turned on my Xbox), but plan on remedying that before the next content drop. I think I may have given that shield to my ex.
Can you dupe things on the xbox like you can on the PC? To do this on the PC:
1. The person who does NOT have the item you want to dupe starts up a session (the taker) & invites the person who has the item in question (the giver)
2. The giver then joins and gives the item to the taker
3. The giver then exits ungracefuly via ALT-F4
4. The taker exits normally (to ensure the item is saved and avoids losing it if they crash unexpectadly)
Tman, pretty much the same technique on the 360.

So I have a dumb question about this game, which is this: Is the player experience as a Level 50 fighting Level 50 baddies appreciably different than that of a Level 1 player against Level 1 baddies? If the enemies are scaling with you, they are going to be as easy or as tough at the end of the game as they were at the beginning. So why is leveling up a big deal? It really doesn't make you more effective against enemies.
Not that it matters - just curious about your thoughts on this. I guess pretty much any game that scales like B2 would have this issue.
On another note entirely, you may or may not have noticed that Gearbox has some cool stuff going on this weekend - earlier today they were pushing out some good shotguns, and this evening they are pushing out good grenade mods. You just have to be "connected to the Internet" while you play. I'm not clear whether 360 users have to have a Gold account to take advantage. I've found a couple of good grenades this evening.
That largely depends on how you're geared by the time you hit 50; you're also going to run into more and tougher Badass mobs the deeper you get. It gets a lot harder to solo (with some classes, anyway) the higher level mobs you run into.
I haven't peeked in (plan to tomorrow) but it may have something to do with the DLC drop that I think's happening in a couple of days, I dunno.
But you have way, way more abilities by virtue of your skill tree at 50 than you do at level 1 (at which point you have zero) and hopefully much better gear. :) So yeah, I'd say it's significantly different at level 50, but you are basically doing the same thing for 50 levels so it gets a little repetitive. The enemies do scale so they can continue to present a challenge to the player, but IME the overall level of challenge decreased significantly until I hit TVHM, at which point it spiked up significantly until my gear caught up with that challenge. The difficulty does increase, but so does your skillset for dealing with enemies and the tools and weapons in your arsenal.
And no, I hadn't heard about the grenades and shotguns thing. How's that work? They're just appearing in-game somehow?
One difference for me, other than skills, is that guns progress along a linear line of ever-increasing awesome. Likewise for grenades (I really like what they did with these) and even shields can do some fun things. So while, yes, you're technically just shooting baddies from one end of the game to the other, the shooting itself is more enjoyable and also a bit more involved as you notice that specific elemental types are more effective against certain enemy types.
