And now, for some links.

2 days until Desert Bus For Hope!

Some funny advertising posters about advertising.

The Borderlands 2 Bee shield finally receives a nerf  in the 1.20 patch:

  • Amplify damage from Amplify Shields is now divided among all projectiles fired from a single shot.
  • Balance adjustments to “The Bee”:
    • Increased Recharge Delay
    • Significantly increased Recharge Rate
    • Reduced Amplify damage

The old Bee shield.

The new Bee shield.

This is the same shield by the way, screenshots taken before and after patch. Big nerfs, an annoying buzzing sound and now using shotguns with the Bee is kind of a waste of time since the amplify damage gets shared among the bullets fired per shot. Which was kind of why it was awesome.

Do you remember Borderlands 1? Do you remember having those big, awesome end-game guns that destroyed everyone fairly easily when you were bored and wanted some bandits to gib? Borderlands 2 doesn’t have that. It’s just one long grind for ‘Legendary’ weapons whose drop rates are rather legendary. Sorry guys, I love the game but it lacks endgame. No decent raid dungeons/bosses. I can’t just go around looting to see new weapons like the New Haven run because there’s no chests that easy to farm.

Honestly, my playing really dropped off when I finally admitted to myself the cool loot was not going to drop as often as the first game. Still not buying into any DLC until more details. Season pass feels expensive for the opportunity to perform more grinding.
