    Who thinks that it would work out? It's a fantastic game, and still getting DLC updates.

    Personally I think it could work out. GamePad used to manage inventory or always show a map. And for local co-op it could be used as the second screen with pro controller on the TV.

    I'd really like to see it on the WiiU, and with the inclusion of MiiVerse, it could make the game so much easier to hook up with people online.

    I started a petition to hopefully get support and show Gearbox, Randy Pitchford and 2K that we want Borderlands 2 on the WiiU. I would love it if you guys signed and spread the word around via facebook, twitter, friends, or owners of the WiiU. Even if you don't plan on playing it, it will be a sign that big titles are wanted on the WiiU.

    It's way more than a CoD clone.

    It destroys CoD in every single way.

    It's an FPS with RPG qualities. 4 different heroes (5 if you include the Mechromancer) that all have different skills and abilities with a special for each character. The soldier can drop a turret, the gunzerker can dual wield, the assassin can distract enemies and go invisible, and the Siren can phaselock which lock enemies in an orb for easy shooting. You can upgrade each skill to add new elements to it to make it even more devastating.

    The loot system is also amazing where no two people will ever have the same gun essentially as each gun is randomly generated with different stats. Same goes for grenades, shields, class mods, and relics. The story is awesome, the writing is top notch and nothing short of astounding, and the game gets better and better with each person who joins you in co-op. Add that with easily over 20-30 hours of gameplay in the single player alone, along with a crap ton of quests and side missions, and 10 hour long DLC's, the game is nothing short of awesome.
     
    Zetta_x and 431unknown like this.

    EDIT: Sorry that came out rude.
    If you haven't played the game before, then I really suggest picking yourself up a copy. It's quite a fun game.

    I find that only the loots get better, but the game gets harder and harder with each new co-op person. unless it's a boss fight.

    It should, they can utilize the wiiu controller in so many ways (customize it so the menu appears on the wiiu?). They can have one player on the wii u controller and another on the regular screen. The map on the wiiu controller?

    OMG

    But that's the best part is it gets harder. The better loot is a factor too. But taking down a raid boss say, Terramorphus who's incredibly hard and you have 4 people shooting at it and there's lots of explosions and guns going off and people helping each other make for great gameplay not only fun wise, but strategic wise too. Such as "shit, should I try and kill these enemies first and risk my partner dying, or should I throw out a Death Trap to distract them or should I take damage and heal my partner."

    Is there some sort of replay value? what do you do once single player campaign is done? is there some form of pvp?

    Farming for legendaries. Also, there is also a "badass" rank system for completing challenges which you can re-do a number of times to get badass tokens. Badass tokens improve your abilities.

    You can play as other characters, go through the story again, get entirely different loot, level up your people, try to get better weapons from bosses, or the DLC will offer even more gameplay. There are also an extra hard boss after the game is done Terramorphus the Invincible.

    I soloed mini bosses and Leviathan is the only main boss I fought solo. I had 3 other people with me when I fought the warrior. Yeah, I do find killing bosses solo is less fun when alone. I've only killed 2 btw, The warrior with 3 other people and Leviathan solo.

    It's really fun but sometimes where there's lots of enemies and someone dies every 1 or 2 mins. I'm like "where do they all come from?" also I can't stack my anarchy if I die too much.

    Leviathan isn't a raid boss. There's two bosses after him that's unlocked, Hyperius the Invincible and Master Gee the Invincible.

    Also guys, I started a petition and would love it if you signed to help it grow, and spread the word around. Even if you don't plan on playing Borderlands 2, it could be a sign for big companies to put their AAA titles on the WiiU and still be profitable from the ever growing WiiU.

    Yay! Come on people! Sign it please! It takes no less than 1 minute of your time. A petition might not mean much, but without them, we wouldn't have Xenoblades or The Last Story here in North America.
