    What was I thinking - don't tell me I'd subconsciously believed the crap about it being secure from pirating. :eek:

    I bought the game, finished, played again for a couple of hours, got bored, begrudgingly bought expansion for rip off price, played through the whole thing in 5 hours, end of game and me playing it again....

    The novelty has worn off for me. If the Multiplayer was easier to manage, ie could actually just host a game. Plus if it was more multiplayer friendly, rather than an FFA, grab every bloody thing you can before someone else does bonanza, I would've been interested in continuing.

    What I also, especially detest, is the "pay money for patches" mentality of Gearbox. I do not feel that I should have to pay money for fixes, and additions, that should've been in the original product or added in a free patch.

    Well ive played 53.7 hours all up. Payed $45 US for it so i reckon i got value out of my purchase. Less than a dollar an hour...cheap entertainment...didn't bother with the expansion..

    I probably got about the same, which overall is very good value for money. Though I was expecting the MP to have a bit more longevity, which unluckily wasn't the case for me.

    Yeah, I thought there would be an endgame of Hitting up bosses with your friends for loot and trying to get better drops and all. But instead, it involves running around town farming chests until you're too bored to play - lol. :)

    Run around Crimson Fastness hitting up chests instead (=

    Five red weapons chests to check and plenty of Crimson enemies to kill.

    Well before I had played the game, what I had envisioned would be more like those boss encounters you had, they would have special chests at the end with better loot. More or less akin to MMORPG group/raids. You could redo the encounter to have a crack at the good stuff. Unfortunately the good stuff was available all over the place. ;)

    [edit]
    PS - I loved that old haven area, was one of my fav's. :)

    You just have to learn where the chests are, try jumping on stuff. ;)

    [edit]
    Oh I just realised you might have meant something from that DLC which I don't own. :p
