Oh man, that letter is hilarious! It feels good to know that Gearbox is putting so much effort into the PC version of the game. Haven't been so stoked for a game ever.

This makes Battlefield 3 look like the Hello Kitty MMO!

You can Anti-Alias me any day baby. Multi sample, Super sample, even rub me down in an anisotropic filter for a long distance relationship. My DOF has a FOV wide enough for the both of us. I am still the tease too, you can caress my menus all day with a touchscreen, but you can't play... not just yet.

Why did I write that... uhhhh... I feel all dirty now.

Does Claptrap have your digits? I'm sure he'd be interested.

I don't know, but I'll need to format my skin and defrag my hardware in preparation. Better get a scan too, don't know what I'm carrying anymore, could be viral.

Looks like I'll be ordering through Game Stop/EB Games - $59.99 Canadian vs. 59.99 US on Steam. Plus there's no mention of the Creature Slaughter Dome bonus when you order through Steam.

http://www.ebgames.ca/pc/games/borde...h-bonus/311316

I can't wait to fire up a soldier and then a mechromancer when it launches. This will be the first game that I haven't gone sniper right out of the gate in a very long time.

I do believe that the Slaughter Dome might be unique to GameStop, given it claims that. Normally, Steam will have it sown form of bonus, so it's a bit strange that it doesn't, given that the game uses Steamworks. I'm just glad this will be all available as DLC, because I don't want to miss out on one inch of this game.

I guess the price isn't so bad considering our dollar is worth a little bit more than the US dollar, but I still like the idea of getting everything all at once (slaughter dome, etc).

Borderlands 2 is the third highest pre-order for Take-Two, only behind GTA series.

That's amazing. I sure hope this is one series with a long life ahead of it.
