Bear, remember we were both having trouble finding Brick and turning in an item after completing the Capture to Flags mission? (no diamond on the map) Well, I was finally able to find him.

I completed an older side mission and went back to Sanctuary to turn it in. They were all upstairs in the HQ. I turned it in and turned to Brick, and finally turned that item in to him. The reward wasn't much, but it cleared that item on the board. Dumb luck I guess. If you ever see him at the HQ, you can complete that one.

Falconer and I played BL2 Saturday night. He helped me finish off a couple of missions. Thanks for that. Then, I asked him if we should tackle "Tarramorphous the Invvincible"

He said it was going to be brutal, but we went ahead to do battle. Honestly, Falconer did most of the damage to this thing, and we killed it. Guess what was left?

There was loot everywhere. I dropped all of my level 30 to 33 stuff and picked up all the level 50 stuff I could carry. Some I put in my safe back at Sanctuary, and some I'll sell for cash as needed. I leveled up again to a 37 and I have over 115,000 dollars and a backpack half full of level 50 weapons. Thanks again Falconer. I couldn't have done it without you.

That's quite a bit of loot! Is that boss on one of the DLC packs?

I've been playing Borderlands 1 and 2 for the past few days. I'm stuck on a mission in Lynchwood where you have to kill a certain giant skag. I died three times and lost quite a bit of money.

So after failing at BL2, I switched to BL1 and beat the Zombie Island of Dr. Ned DLC and managed to level up a few times. It was a good level booster and now I am working on beating the BL1 campaign.

Terramorphous is an enormous unique thresher that is only accessible once the main story has been completed. I don't think you need any DLCs to experience death at it's hands (or tentacles).

I was cleaning up a few missions from the first play-through and it just appeared on my board. But don't attempt to tackle it alone. Apparently Terramorphous was designed to be fought by four level 50 characters. I was only a 36 but Falconer was a 72 (imagine those guns).

I just downloaded the new DLC's for Borderlands 2, but I only had time to play for a few mins.

I saw you come online last night. You started BL2, and then you were gone. I understand now that you were just checking things out after the download. Your character is a 72, is that right? It was late and my eyes were getting tired.


Yup that was me :)

I saved all my keys until I got to 72, and got some mega gear. Great game btw!

The level-ups seem to come slower as I get higher. I'm sure it's because of the increased points needed to level. I'm still loving this game for some reason.

So, in BL2, I was looking at the points needed for the level 38. I have 150 thousand points so far toward the 1.5 million points needed to level-up again. Ouch. And the spread goes up from here. When I see a stream of "27" points come spraying off a guy I just shot, no wonder it doesn't move the level bar. Getting 7600 XP points for completing a mission does move the bar some, thankfully.

Well in that case, guess I'll wait to fight him for a while.

So last night I just killed the last boss in the BL1 main storyline when my game reads "disc error." That was such a huge disappointment after spending three or so hours trudging along to open the vault. Hopefully my game saved.

I found Brick in Santuary the first time I went back after we finished the storyline.

Yes, the higher you go, the points increase exponentially, it takes HOURS to get there, and you will get there MUCH faster playing with levels above your own.

I tried to play some of the DLC for BL2 Saturday morning, got so frustrated with it, I started playing LEGO, Indiana Jones, and got stuck on it too.

Went back to old faithful, Mass Effect 2. Needed 6 cheevos to max it out, picked up one of them in a new game. Should pick up two more in the next few sessions and the fourth after I get the rust out of my absence from playing the game. Five and six will come as the story progresses, gotta change the difficulty on those missions, one to "Hardcore" and the other to "Insane".

Have never cheevo'ed out an Xbox game, typically because I don't play MP enough to advance in it. But some of the ones I love that don't have MP, like ME2 & Amalur, I am pretty close. Gotta do at least one for my bucket list, and time ain't slowing down any.

I killed him last night. I used the Level 37 rocket launcher I got from the "Unassuming Docks" mission. It was still hard. I died once, respawned, and got a "Second Wind" after he killed me again and I killed him back. If you want to, we can jump into your game as well on Saturday and gang up on that sucker.

Be warned once you get to level 72 you will loose $3,000,000+ per death! It happened to me when we were trying to beat the Terramorphous.

O.M.G. 3 million? How much money did you have? So far, respawn fees seem to be based on how much cash you have. As my assets dwindled, so did the fees.

A DLC came out for the game in December. Did you get it? In the DLC campaign "Initiation", you play as a young, pre-Batman Bruce Wayne who faces a series of epic final tests to prove his worthiness to Bruce’s greatest teacher, Kirigi.

Not yet, I am going to finish it before I pick up any DLC or if I like the game i'll probably wait and grab a copy of the complete/goty edition when it comes out since I rented it this time due to the poor reviews :P

Stats say I am 22% complete and I like it so far I just got done with Shiva and the first Joker encounter, the only thing I am not liking is the new voice cast for Bats and Joker.

I'm suprised they replaced Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill to be honest. Conroy has voiced Batman for ages so it's kinda odd that they replaced him with Roger Craig-Smith, known for playing Ezio from The Assassin's Creed series and Chris Redfield from the Resident Evil games. They replaced Mark Hamill with Troy Baker, who voiced Booker in last year's Bioshock Infinite. I guess variety is always nice but when you are accustomed to one voice, it's hard to make the switch.

I have Metro 2033 but haven't played much of it. It is pretty interesting though and I love the "conserve your ammo" philosophy. Last Light will be one to play eventually. Is it scary?

There have been some frights it has a great atmosphere and a well placed sense of claustrophobia at times, I don't play many shooters but I am loving Metro.I have been reading the first book but that is harder to get into due to names and names of places at times and not knowing how to say them lol.

The Metro games are very unique which is a nice change from all of the fast paced shooters.

Oh yeah I bet lol. I'm reading A Clash of Kings right now and sometimes I can't even pronounce some of the characters names so I can't imagine trying to pronounce the characters in the Metro books.

Since we were taking about Last Light, I figured I'd play a bit of Metro 2033 last night; it was quite fun and the atmosphere is horrifying. I often found myself having a certain chill down my spine and turn around to find an enemy just staring at me; pure horror genius. I think I will attempt to solely play Metro until I beat it. I've had it for over a year now and haven't justified the purchase yet so it's time to do so.
