At first I was dying a lot, but now I've got a pretty badass setup. I've got pistols with fire and acid rounds, a shield that if anybody melees me, they get ate up with acid, and regenerating health. I'm a level 13 Gunzerker.
So far, I think the game is a lot funnier than the first ones. Handsome Jack's messages and announcements are hilarious and remind on of Bill Lumbergh, "Yeah, if you could just go ahead and just off yourself, that would be great."
The only things I don't like are the Pyro Nomads and the Suicide Psychos (especially when they gang up on you). But, the Psycho quotes are even better this time: "LOOK ME IN THE EYE WHEN I'M STARING AT YOU!"
