As long as they aren't rushing anything or compromising anything I'll happily have the Mechromancer ahead of schedule.

It seems the Borderlands team is made up of a great bunch within Gearbox, or so it has seemed anyways.

Yeah that's nice, I wonder how big an effect a low end cpu will have on that eye candy, with a 560Ti.

The PhysX looks cool (though I don't like the way the cloth moves, particularly when tearing) but it's nothing that would get me to buy a PhysX capable GPU, or upgrade my GPU at all.

One month to go!!
Borderlands 2

I'd rather say less than a month cause the 16 will be preload day I'm sure, and the 17 will be like Christmas eve.

I got a download code with the gtx 670 that I just bought and that made me think the game was out already. Oh well.

This almost brings a tear to my eye knowing I may never hear it again after the 18th, but it was one of the most epic songs I've heard in a game.

I can take that code off your hands, no problem, or trade you a Steam copy of The Ship.

This is it, the home stretch, tomorrow the weekend begins preloading (no doubt) and distracting ourselves with Black Mesa and whatever else is non Borderlands related. Tuesday is cleared to explore Pandora...I don't mind co-op with people but I'll be exploring every nook and cranny I come across, taking my time.

You can start pre-loading on steam.

It's a surprisingly svelte 4.6GB.
