    I'm not confident in my ability to properly name a cat, thank Griswold V. Connecticut I won't have to think up a name for an actual miniature human being.

    Than you up for borderlands anytime soon
    Maybe this weekend. Gonna try to stay in, spent way too much money last weekend.
    ah okay

    I started playthrough 2 with my hunter to see how it is at this level

    I'm progressing briskly and while the enemy experience is predictably terrible the quest rewards are not insubstantial, which is better than I expected
    I was going to suggest we do it multiplayer, and until we run into something that presents a challenge, split up and run two missions at a time.
    Well, I'll be switching over to my 45 siren when we start up again

    If you reach the ending of the game on playthrough 2, everything else gets stronger; the treasure chests are better, the quest rewards, etc

    so it's only worth it to do the skeletal run of the game up through the boss, then mop up the filler quests with proper opposition

    My children will be named the most appropriate names for their generation. I will form a commission to evaluate what those names are.

    Nicknames are fair game, they can be anything. A proper cognomen can be whatever.

    But given names should be real names damnit. All of them.

    But then how would names ever be created if they had been regulated to 'real names'?

    nicknames

    that is what they are for.

    any children I have will be named first name (first name) middle name (middle name) last name last name.

    Then you just call them something cute that might be related to the name.

    She's got two extra Japanese arms and two extra Irish Feet? For riverdance and kungfu?

    We'd be stuck with Ugg and Grog.

    And Oogabooga would never have come about.

    There'd just be Ooga.

    What a sad thought. :lol:

    You're naming your child "First Name (First Name) Middle Name (Middle Name) Last Name Last Name"?

    I can see the first day of kindergarten now:

    So, what's your first name?

    First Name!

    Yes, that's right, what is your first name?

    First Name!!

    Than:

    http://borderlands.wikia.com/wiki/Playthrough_2
    wrote:
    An ephemeral third playthrough-like setting will be unlocked when
    Spoiler:
    is entered in Playthrough 2. At this point the Playthrough 2 enemy levels will increase to 48 at the start, to 52 for some high end selected opponents at the end of the game. Items will likewise be encountered at maximum levels, with the vast majority being level 48. No new missions are available at this point, although missions gained previously in Playthrough 2 may yield far greater rewards and drops.

    that's exactly the level range we're looking to hit, and likely to hit once we run through the plot missions so it might actually work nicely

    it'll also put us right in the area of the Knoxx dlc, which is not affected by the enemy boost, I believe

    If you want them to end up with unusual nicknames why not just give them unusual names?

    You could end up with a Todd otherwise. D:

    I don't want my child to write "Cow" on official documents, that's just embarrassing.

    But if everyone calls him Cow regardless that's just fine.

    So is Todd! My child should be able to help determine his own nickname.

    They're calling him Cow anyway.

    Besides, if they want to they can always change their names legally to whatever they like.
