    Just started BL2 on the PS4 thanks to plus. Never got around to playing any of these games, not sure why as I've always meant to.

    Anyhoo. Is it all do-able solo? I've no real urge to go through it co-op. Not against the idea so much as there's no one I think I would play it with.

    Also, I really dig it so far.

    @wuntyphyve It's all doable solo, it's how I play. The only real issues are the endgame "raid bosses", but they're completely optional anyway.

    It's great solo and it's great co-op. As rob said, there's only a few optional raid bosses after completing the game/DLCs which are meant for co-op (you can do them solo if you really want to, but it's going to be painful and takes a lot of expertise). I've played 800 hours solo and I'm still playing.

    I started this via ps+ today. I had already played to death on other machines, but must have deleated save files as I could only transfer my lvl 12Axton.

    I played with someone on my psn friends list and I think an EGer I want to say threebears, but I'm not sure if that is right and who they are!

    Re TPS, I completed my first runthrough (360) of that only a couple of days ago, just started TVH runthrough. I have no real desire to play it again so soon.

    No. It includes BL2 + TPS + all DLC but not BL1.

    I recently played through the original in its remastered version on Xbone and while it was great to revisit it, it's not a patch on B2, so if it's a choice of one or the other, I'd say go straight to the second one.

    Yeah you are. Borderlands 1 hardly even has a story, there's nothing happening there you need to know for BL2, so just go to where the real fun is. Play BL2 and if you want more, play BL1 and TPS.

    The tutorial takes over an hour. Game takes a while to get rolling. You're utter shit, BL (both) are in my all time top 20 games.

    How does saving work in this? Does it save everytime I bump into one of those camera things? I saved and quit at a point last night but when I started back earlier this morning it dumped me back at the boat.

    Yes, you can also save and quit anywhere and it will save whatever you picked up but when you restart it will place you at the beginning of the area/map you in, at least I think that is how it works, it does on the previous games I have played.

    Masses of content for silly money. I could see it being GWG next month though, due to psn getting and BL3 releasing soon.

    Yeah, that was my thinking as well, but it was as cheap as I've ever seen it and I couldn't resist picking it up at that price. I already own it on disc, but my inherent laziness decided it was worth that to not have to change discs anymore.
