Single player i quite enjoyed except that it wasn't difficult enough...

due to having a mouse and keyboard made the game far to easy after carrying the console difficulty across. Slight oversight.

It's not "multiplayer" as in "PvP" - it's seamless drop-in/drop-out co-op so you can play the game solo, or you can play it with others (same game, same quests, no restarts, same persistent skills, etc.) - your choice.

I'm pretty sure i did, but being a seasoned RA3 player, and choosing Mordekai as my first character, it became pretty much a case of this:

Yeah that seamless solo / co-op play was awesome and seamless. It's still a great game solo (I did the last couple DLC's solo). Wish you could turn up the solo difficulty another notch though.

Oh thanks for the input, i did know it was not a pvp type multiplayer experience but i thought the game would be pretty lame played solo.

I may go out and try grab it and give it a whirl now. TY

I know someone in 2k games marketing, It will probably ensure I get to see this at PAX. I'll try to post a report.

Interesting stuff, sounds promising. Apparently Game Informer will be revealing some more info so I'm going to drop this here. For the moment, the possible "extra links" are grayed out.

I expect a lot of the communities wishes will be addressed in B2 given how well Gearbox did with the DLC. We asked for a common storage space between toons and we got it. We asked for more vechiles, we got them. We asked to for better ways to scale content, we got it. We asked for repeatable kick as bosses, we got, well, one or two.

Armour/Gear that changes the appearance of characters and more customisation options were a given. Good to hear about the AI. I wonder if the resource system and weapons overhaul means there might be some kind of crafting/gear-modding system in the game - that would be cool.

Would also like to see more PvP options and a better fast travel system - anything using a map would instantly be a massive improvement.
