A book of faces?  That's like... horrific, is this an artifact from a Nazi death camp?  It would be much more valuable if it was signed by the author, is it signed?

Some of the Twitch streamers are giving away copies of the pre-sequel, if you're so inclined. Some have been Steam codes, so you can get it on Mac if you win!!

What if one screams it like an eagle?  Do I get like a coupon for Hamburger Helper?

I get it that IMG Facebooks and Twitters as part of it's business model but man, I just can't ever imagine myself tweeting everything I just ate, said, saw, or stepped in.  I used Facebook for a short time but quit in the middle of an extended half hour socio-retch.  To me those are not only useless tech, it's invasive to my privacy.  It's like everybody wants to be a pop star with no privacy, acting as their own paparazzi.  I don't get it.

But what if you saw something, stepped in it and then ate it?

Sadly 'social' networks have nothing to do with socializing anymore. Its all about spam spam spam around bits of user added nonsense no one cares about.

Then I guess I'd be successfully targeting the prime Tweet demographic.  But hey wait a minute, are you implying that Divine missed her chance at fame and riches only because the technology was not there for her yet?  If only we could go back in time and test this.  I mean you go back in time and test it.  I'll stay here in the lab and man the return switch.  Just mail me a letter when you want to come back.  Drop it in the mail a minute before you want to return because I'll have the old yellowed thing in my desk drawer, but not until you mail it.

No problem. Just let me pick a couple of stocks from 1972 that will go up and maybe some winning lottery numbers and I'm good to go.

Going to finally have some time set aside to start up the game.

Who should I play as first? Claptrap? Misha? Wilhelm?

Wilhelm is a good solid character with good skill trees and a very helpful action skill.  He tosses two surveyor drones, one heals him and the other flies around kicking butt.  Fragtrap has a random action skill and most of his skill tree stats hurt you and your coop friends as much as help you.  I quit playing Fragtrap and started a Wilhelm build and I'm very happy that I cut my losses.

Playing trap with someone playing wilhelm is a test of my patients. He always activates One Shot Wonder when wilhelm is around, which is great for taking out one enemy but burns ALL your ammo.

That is specifically one of the bigger reasons I abandoned Fragtrap, I kept running out of ammo because I couldn't stop firing.  I mean, wtf, how is that at all helpful.  Everything is dead but you are still burning ammo as fast as your weapons will shoot.

I think Fragtrap's hard drive should be replaced.  I don't trust any anti virus software to get all that malware off of it, but hard drives do make great shooting targets.  Just get a new hard drive and boot it with the factory installed OS.  Probably want to wipe his BIOS too.  Reflash everything.  Ugh.  ::shutters::
