I try the refresh icon before i start the game but nothing happens.

How are you considering the playabillity of the game? I just purchased it on sale. Any tips on how to best play it?
Well... Did you played the first one before on the home consoles/pc? I assume not.
First of all, do not go straight to the end of the mainquest. It's filled with sidequests and they give you sweet sweet loot. Enjoy the humour and the characters, each one is unique (even the NPC). If you have the dlc's you have 6 playable characters instead of the vanilla 4.
Try them, each one is versatile but specialized in one category (ex. Zer0 is your stealth guy), also they are customizable in their appereance and skills.
The loot: Each weapon/shield/class mod it's different. They are generated randomly (most of them, not the ''Unique (blue) and Legendaries (orange), they usually drop from bosses or at the end of a quest and they have fixed effects/stats)
And, the last advice is: @Chrisssj2 enjoy the game spoiler free! You will learn everything by just playing. Also, it has a very good story! :'(

Thanks for the explaination i played only 30 min of borderlands 1 lol. My question was mostly as to, game fluidity and bugs since i read there were some @ game release.. but with these updates im wondering how it runs now. I dont like the idea of reloading missions because of a crash if u cant save anywhere..

How do you actually save manually in this game? or atleast know it's being saved...?

With the updates it's a lot better. Just some minor framedrops and bugs (like characters with missing audio sometimes in cutscenes). I didnt' have to reset one time.

I see so it will save the exact spot and not revert to checkpoints when you manually quit?
Err. no. If you quit>save>restart you will respawn at the start of the map or at the last valid Fast Travel station. Not at the same point you quitted, so it's kind of an ''escape button'' to the last FT. I suggest you to play a little more before saving so if you find a FT station near trigger it and you don't have to walk again/kill enemies when you load your game.

    USB is fine, but shouldn't it be replaced with bulky, hard to use cables and all sorts of proprietary male-female connector port shapes?

    40Gbps is just going to result in even more more lazy developers writing sub-optimal, lazy code.

    How? That transfer speed is insane

    That's like saying fast transfers is going to be the downfall of gaming

  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Then when devs that actually do take their time makes people cry over them taking their time and having to wait even longer
    +2
  • Shape @ Shape:
    Very astute observations, but you failed to take into account people like me who prefer devs to take their time despite longer waits and really, really dislike the suboptimal approaches many studios are taking with game development in this day and age. Catering to the customers with impatient impulses for instant-gratification is a super-profitable business strategy in the short term, sure, but it is an untenable business strategy in the longer term simply because you cannot guarantee you can produce a quality game in that timespan repeatedly. Therefore, you will have to abuse your workforce or partake in other inethical practices in order to compete in the marketplace and remain profitable.

  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Not really a fail the general public just doesn't know how to wait I don't see what faster transfer speeds have to do with that

  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    That's why GTA games are so great because they have that 5-10 year wait and most new sports games are updated roasters they can't really do much improvement with them because not much their is to improve but on the other hand you get a new cod game every year and it makes millions per year so why stop the cash flow if people are dumb enough to buy every new game peryear
