Anyone else diggin the music in this game? The background tunes are pretty vegeable which suits me fine for grinding and the action music is decent too. Here's the song from the opening scene with the bus running over the Skag.

Checked EB Games and BestBuy near my work in Burlington - no dice Called a different EB Games yesterday and the guy said Oct 28th for PC - I'll call that one tomorrow again and am going to check Walmart after work

any other suggestions - yes I know about Steam but I don't have a credit card or pay pal account.

Found today (in Montreal though) Future shop/Best buy didn't have it. When to Game Buzz (awesome video game store downtown) and had it. I guess you'll just have to wait...

Just killed Sledge, was very easy with the right weapon to kill his shields then unload on him with everything but the kitchen sink.

He gives an AWESOME shotgun too!!!!

I love this game so far.

When I heard the opening song, I already knew the game would be awesome. I love it when game developers put good music in their games.
Also, I'm halfway through level 22 and I'm still using Sledge's shotgun. Amazing piece of weaponry so far. Only thing I can use better than it is my 9 shot, 275 damage, ~98% accuracy 1.4 fire rate sniper rifle. Love that friggin thing, 1000+ damage on crits.

Soldier here. I love my turret buddy with extra health/ammo regeneration and extra shots fired. Keeps mobs busy while I blow the rest up.

Was talking to lpfan4ever on steam about this yesterday. I found the best gun I had to use on him was a "glorious Assault rifle" that does 57 per shot, 80-something accuracy and a 61 bullet magazine. Was basically backpedaling away from him and unloading into his chest (since lpfan4ever aptly mentioned that his head is covered in freaking STEEL, lol). Worked well for me.

Im thinking about starting other characters off as well, and trying to get them all to the ~ level 20 area. I really want to try out the other characters now too, for the bonuses and abilities they have.

I used a "shock" add-on artifact on my turret, dropped it and used a high damage but slow shock rifle I had, that dropped all his shields in 2 seconds, then switched to my S&S something Assault Riffle with 95 accuracy/54 damage and +- 100 mag and unloaded while backing up. It made a short order of him. I'm also specced heavily into assault rifles(lvl 8 or 9).

Now that I got my soldier lvl 20, I may try another caracter too for some off-play but I definitly want to keep going with the story.
