    “Think of Borderlands 2 as Diablo 3″? Crack must be selling cheap these days.

    Borderlands 2 has ~58 hours of gameplay for a single character, while D3 has 14 (for a single character). Borderlands 2 has a bazillion weapons and far more customization than D3 could ever imagine. B2 does not have that persistent connection crap either, so when your connection drops out in the hardest setting, you do not have to start all over again.

    Borderlands 2 has added more content, fixed bugs, improved their great stories, and delivered a more enjoyable experience from its predecessor. Diablo III introduced far more bugs, an even weaker story, a silly auction house, useless crafting, and reduced the length of the game significantly, from its predecessor. In short, there is nothing in common between the two except that they both made significant graphical improvements between releases. The major point there is Gearbox only took a few years to get theirs out, while Blizzard took a decade.

    So ignore the whole D3 comparison and expect far more from Borderlands 2. You will not be disappointed.

    @ChrisW,

    Chill out my baby! It’s just a simile. I think you’re missing the forest for the trees here. Of course the games aren’t exactly the same.

    Still, I’m excited for this shooty-shooty opus, can’t we agree on that?

    I have to agree with Chris W.
    Comparing Diablo 3 to Bordelands 2 fails in every respect.
    In stead of saying “Think of Borderlands 2 as Diablo 3 with first-person shooting.”
    You might as well have said “Think of Borderlands 2 as The Sims with first-person shooting, but without the Sims.”
    The simile is meaningless.

    But indeed I am very much looking forward to Borderlands 2.
    I enjoyed Borderlands 1 immensely and they seem to have addressed all the points of critique concerning the first game. So this will be a guaranteed blast.

    Chapter 3 of this Walkthrough doesn’t come close to even being the same game I’m playing.
    What’s up?
    Chapters 1 and 2 are spot on to what I’ve played before I ever knew of this site.
    Could this be such an open-world game that I’m not playing the same sequence as you?
    I’ve also noticed that there are several different packages you can buy through Steam.
    I’m playing the free version from Nvidia that came through my purchase of an EVGA GTX 690.
    The 1st page of this article says that this is a complete walkthrough. There are only 3 short chapters to this game?

    @kzinti1:

    Borderlands 2 is a very open game, with many optional quests and areas for you to explore. Sorry to confuse, but the walkthrough isn’t complete yet. But, we do plan on getting it finished! Please stick with us though, we’ll have more up for you soon!
