    why the playable characters i mean "hot" guy and "hot" girl
    looks so so bland and uninspired even compared to other characters that seem to be NPC ?
    this game could use TANK GIRL as a DLC character
    or noodle from gorillaz

    Looking forward to playing as all four characters. The game is looking awesome.

    Edit: In other news, my girlfriend and I shall be pre-ordering the limited edition of this game and playing it on launch day. It is one of the few games we can actually play together and it shall be part of our anniversary celebration.

    Double posting because lol

    There have been articles on IGN about how each of the characters will play. I can't exactly directly link anyone to them since I'm typing from my phone (edit: added the links), but I will give a general synopsis for each character.

    Salvador (Gunzerker)
    Plays similarly to the Berzerker, but instead of dual-wielding fists you dual-wield guns. Skill upgrades allow him to tank, draw aggro, dual-wield grenades (without costing more). Seems to be a focused on dishing as much carnage to as many enemies as possible.
    Maya (Siren)
    Gains the "Phaselocking" skill, which traps an enemy in a bubble thus taking them out of combat. This can be altered to have magic effects, lock more than one person, or to heal/revive players from a distance. Focuses more on crowd control than the original Siren (who's phasewalking skill was mostly used for running away in combat).
    Axton (Commando)
    Plays very much like the Soldier with his deployable turret, but the turret is more customizable than before. It can be altered to focus on short, mid, or long range combat. It can also teleport to wherever you throw it (think longbow grenades from the first game). Still acts as a supporter/wild card.
    Zer0 (Assassin)
    Focuses on melee and sniping, and is the only character with any "real" weapon specialization. Special skill cloaks the player and creates a decoy. Decoy can be modified through skills. While cloaked, you are able to be damaged but you can see every enemy in the battle as well as their critical weakpoints. Recharge time is based on how long you are cloaked and the longer you are invisible, the more damage you dish out. Focuses more on single-target damage than any other character.

    The AI definitley looks a lot better in that vid than that crappy AI in the first game. I need to see more on the story and the boss battles. Those were the other two sticking points that made the journey in the first game for me feel tedious and not worth the effort.

    During their PAX East panel today, members of Gearbox announced that Borderlands 2 will be adding a Mechromancer class and character customization to the massive shooter. Rather than a stock assortment of gear and costumes, players will have to earn their new wardrobes.

    New gear, costume pieces, and even custom heads can be acquired by completing missions and challenges, as well as ranking up. In addition, players of the original Borderlands will immediately be rewarded with an exclusive head and skin.

    The Mechromancer is yet to be developed, and will be made available as post-launch DLC. This female character seems to be a mix of human and machine, and can control a large robot known as D374-TP (Deathtrap). The character will be made available for free to those that pre-order the game. There is no ETA or pricing available for the Mechromancer yet, but Randy Pitchford said he hopes to price it at a level "comparable to most DLC." Also announced was a special edition of the game that will retail for $149.99, and comes packaged in a loot box from the game. You can see the package, which includes a Marcus bobblehead and a copy of the game, below.

    I have reserved eighty Ultimates. I shall take the chests and scatter them in the city and leave goodies inside. I shall then provide my friends cryptic clues about their whereabouts.

    Seriously, though. Ultimate edition or bust for me. Now we just need to get the group back together so I can be the back-up 4th player
