Got Axton up to level 41-ish, did many of the DLCs with him including Fight for Sanctuary.

FfS was quite entertaining despite the meh bad guy. Mostly the right level of difficulty. The side missions I did were entertaining. Got some wicked weapons out of it. Well worth the time.

Not completely happy with one aspect of the story though:

(Maybe add a note that your spoiler contains possible BL3 spoilers as well as BL2? I didn't mind, but some might.)

So that explains where they were going a bit better. Good insights, but then my complaint boils down to
Spoiler
Anyway still enjoyable, just not their best writing. Hopefully it's because they had their best writers working on BL3. :-)

Nothing I wrote about BL3 is really a secret. It's either in the trailers, mentioned in official promo material, or has been shown in official previews. In the gameplay reveal stream, Gearbox for instance showed large parts of the beginning the of the game and the later hub area, so we know who will turn up in the game. The rest is just putting two and two together.

Yeah, there were a couple of weak parts. The final mission from Vaughn for instance also was rather meh.

Agreed, not secret. But those story reveals were presented to people who specifically want lots of detail. A casual viewer of a BL3 trailer might not want to know everything that the fan community has managed to assemble so far from all available sources.

Like I said, it didn't bother me much, but if I'd known the amount of detail in there I would have skipped it. I suggest labeling it "mild BL3 spoilers based on what we've learned from previews" or something.

I admit it's a grey area. Feel free to ignore the suggestion if you still disagree.

Moving on..

Aspyr updated the Mac App Store version of Borderlands 2 to version 1.8.5 also with the option to use Ultra HD Textures.

It now also offers the 'Commander Lilith & the Fight for Sanctuary' DLC for $14.99/16,99€.

Hi guys! I just started playing Borderlands 2 and discovered that the map M looks awful. It's very blurry with low res, specially when zoomed in. I'm in Southern Shelf in the beginning. I have an iMac 2011 with Radeon HD 6750M 512 MB and the game itself looks good with high settings. I have the same settings in BL1 and the map there looks sharp even when zoomed in. I haven't tried the Ultra HD textures and shouldn't have to. I changed the video settings and verified the game's cache in Steam with no difference. I have the latest version of BL2, 1.8.5. I googled a lot but can't find anything about the map display quality. My next step is to contact Aspyr. Btw, how do I attach a screenshot here from my HDD? The image button requires a url and I get different error messages when I paste the screenshot??
