Hm, I ALSO got a super corrosive pistol there, which is still a top weapon at level 8, although it fires like an smg. Actually, maybe it IS an smg... the weapon types are not very clearly defined.|
I sat down with it last night with a cracking headache but thought I'd check out the start briefly at least. Played for 4-5 hours.
I had a good feeling about gearbox. This appears to be them entering the megasuperbigtime. Hopefully Aliens is also top stuff.
