    Wonder how EGS handles pre-loads. I've largely given up pre-loading on Steam. I've got a very fast Virgin Media connection, so the download time isn't particularly painful. Meanwhile, the sheer amount of decryption activity that Steam does on preloads can often take as long as the download would have and is also pushing my SSD's TBW usage (ok, ok, I know that's not really something to worry about, but still...).

    Might try the BL3 pre-load from EGS just to compare.

    Well, unlike Steam EGS never uses my full bandwidth, downloading at ~1.7 MB/s instead. I don't know how that translates to first world countries with fast internet, but I'll assume you get more than that there or people would be up in arms probably.

    EGS' download/installation graphs are a little off too. According to them, per minute it downloads 1MB and writes 30GB.

    Steam crashes my router at least once every time I download a game from there. No other store does and its fucking annoying.

    preload done.

    anybody know if BL3 has its own in-built friends from the shift account or will it plug into the EGS friends list?

    Need to add peeps regardless ... just in case i feel social for a change

    Think Iím going to skip this for now, more of the same is not what I need right now as Iíve still not done all the dlc for 2, the hunters seem fairly dull and uninspiring from what Iíve seen and Iíd like the see performance impressions etc first.
    Maybe wait for a sale.

    Or probably collapse over launch weekend and cave in.

    I got it because I want to play borderlands again and I struggle to play BL2 any more because UVHM is just bullshit in that when compared to the same mode in the pre-sequel which got the balance and the power scaling correct and was totally broken in BL2.

    So I'm going into this one with all I want is more borderlands and so long as they've balanced UVHM I'm going to enjoy it for hours upon hours.

    Gah I was hoping simply would of despatched today and maybe I'd get it a cheeky day earlier as is the norm from them. Never mind, hopefully it gets here for launch day. Looking forward to more BL. I've been holding off playing 2 again for ages.

    @dsmx I think this only has TVHM so far? Possibly UVHM coming later via patch/DLC, as it did for BL2?

    14 short hours until I can play it. Planning to have a half hour stint at midnight and then have the day off work tomorrow to play through.

    Which character are people using first ? I'm going with Zane first time out.

    I might, but waiting to see how it is.

    I also have the new gears and apex (still my current main squeeze) on the go, so may wait a wee bit yet.

    Does anyone know if there will be a system to upgrade guns that youíve had for a while so as to keep them on par with your characters increasing levels? Or will it be like previous BL games and you just have to abandon older guns after a while?

    If reviews are accurate, it's the same as the old games. Abandon old guns for shiny new guns.

    Hopefully the power creep of the weaponry is like it is in the pre-sequel and not BL2, you can use weapons for a lot longer in the pre sequel than you can in BL2.

    Decided to go with the PS4 and started pre loading. Should be ready in time for midnight. Haven't seen trailers or gameplay so I'll be going in blindly this time round. Can't wait to see how this goes :)

    I dunno, I kind of like being forced to try out new guns. That's the appeal of Borderlands, right?
