Somebody came to Pied Type today in search of “gaming grandmas.” That would be me, and I suppose an update is in order. I’ve been playing Borderlands 2 (Xbox) for the last week, and it’s just as much fun as the original BL. The single biggest problem is there’s no way to set the difficulty level with Borderlands, so it’s tough going for me. I play solo, I die a lot, I get frustrated, my progress is slow. Also, I miss having a pet to assist me. Still, I had a blast (no pun intended) with the first BL, so I persist. Besides, there’s a “pet” class coming on October 16 — if I can tear myself away from my first character.
