Greetings Traveller! There are new missions available at the Late Night Computing Bounty-board for September 18, 2012.
So tell me Shacknews, how is Borderlands 2? Is it everything we hoped it would be? Or is it just another mediocre title? I'm not looking to bother you much with some inane diatribe, but if you are playing Borderlands 2 do come back to our review by Steve Watts to compare notes. A good discussion is certainly in order!

- "GW2 crafting. What's the best way to level crafting? I find discovery frustrating, but don't REALLY want to find a list of recipes online. Also, materials don't seem to drop nearly at the rate they should to level crafting skills. You have to buy 80% of what you need from the TP, but then the TP is like 40000 feet from the crafting station and its a pain in the butt." [by mlev]
- "What's your favorite video game-related Easter Egg? My vote goes to Dopefish. ALL his appearances. I don't think there is enough Dopefish representation in today's games. The game that I felt had the most memorable Easter eggs was probably duke3d.exe. Swiss-cheese level design and environment interactivity probably helped in that regard. The Doomed space marine, the bridge of the Enterprise, the Terminator cameo... that game got so much right." [by The Grolar Bear]
