Christina Trapolino54,573#CircleSunday  November 18, 2012It's been several months since I last shared this Circle with you guys, but I'm really glad to be starting it up again.  I have been taking your suggestions into consideration, but this week I'm sharing three people with you who have been on my radar for some time:---+Isabelle Fortin is someone I found through a neat hashtag event called #MovieMashupTuesday .  The idea...well, you can find it by clicking on the hashtag.  Some of the images they come up with make me laugh out loud... IRL.  ;)  Isabelle's stream is also just plain interesting -- she is a self-confessed foodie (and so am I), and one of the few people whose Instagram posts don't annoy me.  I'm certain she'll add some quirky fun to your streams.I've been following +Ralph Roberts for quite some time -- he worked with NASA on the Apollo program (*dreamy sigh*), so you can take posts with titles such as "Does chocolate make you clever?" very seriously in his stream.  Furthermore, ever since I got an iPad, I've found Ralph's posts to consistently liven up my feeds with beautiful images.  If you're from Austin and you know who John Aielli is, you might understand why I freakin' love Ralph Roberts.Last but not least is +Chris Hoeller, who has been in my Circles for a very long time.  His posts are sometimes a lot like reading a Twitter feed -- short and funny -- but he also makes incredibly thought-provoking posts about technology and social media.  I suspect that if you enjoy my posts on the subject of communication, you'll like Chris a lot.---That's it for this week! Please feel free to recommend yourself or others for a #CircleSunday   feature by using the "Send an email" button on my profile or sending a tweet to @cmtrapolino-- make sure you include a link to the profile you're recommending, as some names are not unique.Happy Plussing, everyone!2012-11-19 03:11:2212014227
Michael B.1,582This circle was just shared to me by +Christina Trapolino .Thank you for sharing :-)2012-07-30 15:01:50118203
Christina Trapolino48,549July 15, 2012 #CircleSunday  It has been storming for almost a whole week in Austin!  Those of us who remember the wicked drought from last year (I wasn't a resident then, but a visitor several times) are grateful beyond words for the lower temperatures and the higher water levels in the lakes.  I am especially grateful for the storms because I can actually get more than 4 hours of sleep when it's raining.Stormy Sundays are probably the best thing ever (apart from brunch), and I've spent most of today browsing G+ and adding new folks to my 'potential Circle Sunday' list.  Here are the pleeps I've chosen for this week:---+Lil Peck has a slight obsession with horses.  I don't share that obsession (although I do like horses, and spent many summers as a little girl learning to ride them), but Lil Peck's Stream is just so dang interesting that I read it obsessively, anyway.  My favorite content of hers is tech-related -- especially when it's Google+ related.  Her latest post is an example of this (it's about how to make sure your Stream is drama-free): http://bit.ly/NvrXZV+Rachelle Doorley is an arts educator.  She also publishes something called Tinkerlab, which is actually pretty fascinating even if you're not a DIYer.  Speaking of DIY, my favorite part of Rachelle's profile is her suggestion of which Circles to add her to.  She lists DIY twice!  Whether it's intentional or not, I got a chuckle out of it because that's actually a fair analysis of her content: it's a lot of DIY/crafts stuff.  That said, I keep her in my "awesome A-list" Circle because her posts are fresh and unique.  Check out her latest post here: http://bit.ly/NJMquE+Jonathan Abbey is a testament to the power of the Nearby Stream.  By that, I mean that I found him through the first version of the mobile app for G+ -- he was posting from near my location, and I added him on a whim.  Several months later, and he's still on my read list!  He posts a lot of political stuff (fair warning if you like Romney -- Johnathan's Stream is unforgiving), but he's not preachy.  Talk about a rare find.  Check out his latest post here: http://bit.ly/NqjhFk---That's it for this week! Please feel free to recommend yourself or others for a #CircleSunday   feature by using the "Send an email" button on my profile or sending a tweet to @cmtrapolino-- make sure you include a link to the profile you're recommending, as some names are not unique.Happy Plussing, everyone!2012-07-16 01:21:3911718125
Christina Trapolino47,824July 1, 2012 #CircleSunday In a few days, it'll be my one year anniversary on Google+, but the platform itself celebrated its birthday this past week.  As a result, lots of people posted fantastic stories about their time here (check the #MyFirstPost  hashtag to peruse the Stream of posts), and I made a lot of new friends.  All three of my Circle Sunday recommendations below are a direct result of that.  I hope they bring something fresh to your Streams, as they have mine.  :)---+Mark Bruce is a regular #ScienceSunday  contributor who came to me via a shared Circle this past week.  If you're looking to beef up your science Circles, you can file Mark under awesome.  He hails from Adelaide in South Australia, which is where I went to some university a few years back.  It's a great, albeit quiet little town full of smart folks like Mark, IIRC.  Extra cool points awarded due to his self-proclaimed enthusiasm for transhumanism.  Check out his latest post here: http://bit.ly/LJ9YLLI have never recommended a Page in my Circle Sundays, but that's changing this week.  I stumbled across a Googler's new yoga page -- +Quantum Yoga -- during my Stream surfing this week and fell in love.  I want to get into yoga, but I've had some trouble making time for it.  +Brandon Seils' Page is helping me to increase my interest in the practice by highlighting its geeky side.  Maybe my next step will be to find a good yoga Hangout!  Check out the Page's latest post here: http://bit.ly/MNqKNf+Ivan Yudhi is more proof that commenting thoughtfully will get you noticed and Circled by people with common interests.  I found Ivan while hopping around several I/O conversations.  He posts a lot about sports as well as different smartphones and their creators (and other tech, in general).  His profile indicates he's into photography, and while I don't see a lot of his photos in his Stream, I'm hoping he'll take some pictures soon and share them!  Check out Ivan's latest post here: http://bit.ly/LYLBek---That's it for this week!

Christina Trapolino47,287June 17, 2012 #CircleSunday Hello again, Google+!This month has been tremendous for me -- as I continue to search for cultural clues that prove my hypothesis that society is evolving its use of social media, I've learned a great deal about the relationship between brands and bloggers (or, as I like to call them, citizen journalists).  More on this later in the week, when I share my takeaways from the Blog Her Food '12 conference in Seattle.For today, I'm very pleased to share these fine folks with y'all for Circle Sunday!---First up is +John Maguire, who is a clinical researcher at the University of Kansas. John livens up my Stream with fantastic posts about all sorts of topics (seriously, they range from sports to outer space), but my favorite thing about him comes from his profile: "Being green is [sic] doesn't have to reflect one's political status, rather learning how [to] better our way of living and sustaining a better place to live for future generations." Hear, hear! Check out his latest post here: http://bit.ly/MzMHzrI have well over 500 photographers in my Circles, and they are all super talented.  They certainly remind me that my Instagram account is strictly amateur.  Many of them have enormous followings, but some have been less exposed than others.  Case in point?  +Rainer Steinke is a street photographer whose taste and style are, in my opinion, spectacular. This is my favorite of his recent posts: http://bit.ly/MXbUkM+Kyle Sullivan is an exobiology major (bonus nerd points) whose posts are endlessly interesting.  I like Kyle's Stream so much because he mixes NASA information with a quirky sense of humor (he initially caught my attention when I saw some re-shares of his #AwayTeamPorn posts -- y'all know how I feel about Star Trek).  Check out his latest post here: http://bit.ly/M5sdws---That's it for this week!

Christina Trapolino46,899June 3, 2012 #CircleSunday  Hello again, Google+!  I've been a very busy girl for the past couple of weeks, but I've still been surfing my Streams and looking out for great people to feature for Circle Sunday.  Today, I'd like to share the latest three additions to my #CircleSunday  Circle:---+David Garcia has been in my Circles for a long time, and I've been meaning to feature him for much of that time.  His posts are uplifting and his message is something we can all relate to from time to time.  David has a blog called, "Keep it up, David!" and it's about his battle with losing weight.  He's doing a great job, which is nice to see, but what makes his approach really special is that he doesn't focus on weight all the time.  Rather, he chooses to highlight great things to eat for their taste and nutritional value, which makes his content engaging for anyone -- trying to lose weight or not.  Check out his latest post here: http://bit.ly/LrbDGU+Gunther Cox only has about 1,100 followers and I have no idea why he doesn't have way more than that, so I'm hoping this feature will help spread his content to a larger audience.  Gunther posts about what is probably the coolest thing ever -- robots.  He makes them and posts about them!  Check out his latest post here: http://bit.ly/Le1mBLI'd like to let +Jonathan Chalker's profile speak for itself (boy, I love when people really take the time to fill that sucker out): "I am a proud first generation G+ user. In G+ I write articles about science, technology, music, design (web and product), philosophy, media, and customer service in the digital world. I also follow quite a few people, read most of their posts, and actively comment (yay, me)."  He really is an interesting guy to follow!

Anthony Fox12,566Circle of Influencers IIt's been awhile since I've shared these circles and they've grown quite a bit. These are people who have between 3500 and 10,000 followers (or did when I put them in the circle, I'll check +CircleCount after I post this and move the people who've passed 10K in to the next circle.)2012-05-01 18:41:46473391232
Christina Trapolino44,279April 8, 2012 #CircleSunday First of all, happy Easter (or Zombie Jesus Day, depending on your preference), everybody! Yesterday was my birthday, so I drove to Dallas to see some friends and am currently in recovery mode after having a large amount of celebratory champagne (shhh, please pass the Advil). Regardless, I'm happy to share three of my newest Circle Sunday recommendations with you all!---+Bud Gibson is a business professor who specializes in technology and online marketing. His Stream, however, is mostly filled with rather pretty photographs and interesting notes about social platforms. Check out one of his latest photographs here: http://bit.ly/Hq1v3J.+Melissa Bryan is a self-labeled "geeky gamer girl," and as a former gamer myself, I find her Stream to often feel like a kindred's. She's got a great sense of humor and her posts will add a nice dash of comedy to your Stream. Check out her latest, Easter-themed post here: http://bit.ly/Hq3iWt (it makes me giggle).I've been paying more attention to my Photography Circles lately, and +Jacob Dix has been posting some of the more unique photos I've seen in the past couple of weeks. He often posts photos with a #MobileOnly tag, which is not something I was previously familiar with. The effects, however, are really more interesting than I would have thought (obviously, I know nothing about photography!). Here is my favorite recent photo of his: http://bit.ly/IcQPRU.---That's it for this week! Please feel free to recommend yourself or others for a #CircleSunday feature by using the "Send an email" button on my profile or sending a tweet to @cmtrapolino-- make sure you include a link to the profile you're recommending, as some names are not unique.Happy Plussing, everyone!2012-04-08 23:13:209134120
Christina Trapolino43,425March 25 - #CircleSunday I hope y'all had wonderful weekends. I spent mine with the Italian side of my family. We celebrated a very early Easter and ate plenty of Italian food, so I'm pretty worn out. Luckily, I've had most of today to rest. And it being Sunday means that it's time for me to share my picks for you to add to your Circles this week!---+Jason Salas is someone I've been following since my first week on Google+. He's a very sharp guy who posts at the most ridiculous times possible (well, for me -- but I live in Texas and he lives in Guam!) but always has something funny, fascinating, or insightful to say. The content he curates is usually of interest to me, but I think my favorite thing about him is that he's a Bob's Burgers fan. It takes a special kind of humor to like Bob's Burgers, and Mr. Salas shares it with me. Maybe you're into quirky comedy, too? You'll like Jason, then. Check out one of his latest posts here: http://bit.ly/GRgLGF.+Lizzy Miles caught my attention by making clever comments on some interesting discussions and I added her to my Probation Circle (if you don't know what that is, jog your memory here: http://bit.ly/uJNTzm). She's got a very interesting Stream full of well-curated content and a really robust profile, although I especially agree with this part: "Lizzy Miles changes her mind frequently about her career identity, but has always held true to her enthusiasm for written and oral storytelling." For a sample of what Lizzy has to offer, check out one of her latest posts here: http://bit.ly/H2YO75.+Jadey A-S Wilson has been in my Circles for a long time, and her posts have always been a welcome part of my Stream, even though she clearly refuses to fill out her profile (or make it public, I'm not sure which is the issue). ;) Her thoughts and commentary are usually a departure from the norm, which is what makes her a permanent resident in my "Recommended" Circle, which is publicly visible on my profile. Check out her latest post here: http://bit.ly/GRO4Ul.---That's it for this week! Please feel free to recommend yourself or others for a #CircleSunday feature by using the "Send an email" button on my profile or sending a tweet to @cmtrapolino-- make sure you include a link to the profile you're recommending, as some names are not unique.Happy Plussing, everyone!2012-03-26 04:34:24858118

Dominic Meagher770The China Circle - Since Google+ seems to have welcomed a whole bunch of new people from China, I thought I'd share my China circle. This is circle of people that seem to have an interest in China. I shared it once before, and this is the updated version. Later I'm going to try to work on a more selective version - I'll try to get it down to less than 100 people. But for now, this is it.If you want to be added or removed from it, please let me know in comments.2012-03-03 03:15:25449004

Christina Trapolino32,823And now...the first #CircleSunday of 2012I'm thrilled that my first post of 2012 is a shared Circle filled with wonderfully talented and interesting people -- it seems in line with one of my resolutions for this year, which is to promote the good work of others in any way I can. Other resolutions and reflections will come later, but for now...I'm really happy to present the following three people for your Circling consideration.---+Mitch Wagner always has an interesting article to share, but it's his personal opinions and musings that I really watch out for and pay attention to. He's been a really fun and often thought provoking addition to my Circles and I'm sure he will be for you, also. Read his post about how he read before the Internet here: http://bit.ly/vu4G8w.+Richard Stephenson is someone I've followed for many weeks on Google+. He always has something interesting to post, and there is a wide variety of topics and forms of media in his Stream. You'll find everything from personal stories to shares about cars that recognize the shape of your backside (yeah, I was a little weirded out by that, too). Check out his share of Woody Guthrie's New Years Resolutions here: http://bit.ly/uwxGIm+Kristen Marhaver is a postdoctoral researcher and a coral biologist. I have had her in my Circles for a long time, and I'm always eager to see what she has to share. Unfortunately, she doesn't share as often as others...but her work is so interesting that I'm hoping this gentle nudge will persuade her to share more of her stunning photography and fascinating tidbits with us on Google+.

Claude Rieth3,070(Sun03 ) Hand-curated circle with iPhone photographers: Updated!Here's a circle composed of photographers using the iPhone as camera, and posting about the different tools available.This week I learnt about apps to make panorama photos through some of these talented photographers.It's a small circle, maintained and filtered. I've visited all their profiles to verify that they have original iPhone-photo related content! There are almost no reshares, there are essentially photos taken with the iPhone, and posts covering #iPhoneography . If you think you should be in this circle, don't be shy, just say so and I'll include you for the next reshare. tl;dr:iPhotogs! #SharedCircles #PublicCircles #mofomo +Shared Circles on G+2011-12-18 16:47:16399110

Christina Trapolino25,955#CircleSunday is here!I think this is the first Sunday I've been at home to post a Circle Sunday in over a month, and nothing is slowing down. Soon, I'll be moving to #Austin, TX, where I'll be starting a new job and a new chapter in life. There are only 24 hours in a day, but lately I find myself wishing there were more hours, or that sleep was less necessary. It isn't, by the way. Sleep as much as you can.Still, #CircleSunday is an excuse for me to drown out the noise all around me, to slow down and really appreciate the things that go on in my Streams. This week, I want to introduce you to three people who have been particularly interesting for me. I hope they will inspire you, too.---How do you feel about fine art? If you're like me, you wish you knew more about it and that you had time to be exposed to more of it. If that sounds right, you'll really like +Portrait Artist Enzie Shahmiri. She shares fine art from all over, and she even labels her posts so that you know who the artist is and how it was painted. She's also an artist herself, of course, and her own art is often very impressive, although I suspect it would be more impressive in person. Enzie really makes my Stream feel a little more classy, by the way. See if she doesn't add a bit of the finer side to yours! Check out her latest share here: http://bit.ly/vUi5Kk+Timothy Lake describes himself as a "common sense existentialist with authority issues," which is enough to entice on its own, but his posts really follow through. He often shares things that I wouldn't have likely seen otherwise, like this awesome #TEDTalk on how to spot liars (http://bit.ly/t6qgzi), but his own content is always very interesting, too. Timothy likes to examine the world around him and when he writes, it's obvious that his feelings are sincere and his observations are completely authentic, which makes the text engaging. He also has a really quirky sense of humor. See for yourself!+Mikael sh is Swedish, devilishly handsome, and has a reasonable following already (over 7,000!) -- but his posts are just so interesting that I think anyone who hasn't stumbled across him yet should have a look. The post I'm linking is tagged as #SentimentalSunday (http://bit.ly/tsmSrk), but Mikael openly admits that his share isn't even personally sentimental to him. I like that he participates honestly. He's a mixed bag -- you'll find posts about everything from science to martial arts in his Stream, so he's tough to categorize. But like others who fit that bill, I think it's a plus!---That's it for this week! Please feel free to suggest folks for a #CircleSunday feature. Please note, however, that the "Send a message" link in my profile is not the best way to go about doing so. I know at least three people sent me recommendations that way this past week and I just couldn't find the posts again after seeing them once, so please use the "Send an email" link or tweet at me if that strikes your fancy (@cmtrapolino). That way I won't have to dig for the recommendation later!H2011-11-14 00:08:064929620
Christina Trapolino22,130October 23: #CircleSundayEvery Sunday, I like to share three new Plussers with you all who make my Streams more fun to read. This is my favorite thing to do on Google+ because it's an exercise in discovery. I have a lot of people in my "potential Circle Sunday" Stream, and it's always difficult to choose just three per week. This week was no exception, but I managed to narrow it down.Enjoy!---+Terrence Lui is one of the most interesting people I've added to my Circles recently. He writes about a whole variety of topics, from marathon running to tech business analysis. His posts are always carefully thought out and his level of interaction on them is impressive. His latest post is titled "Strange Running Injuries" -- and it made me cringe while laughing. A good combination, I think! Check it out here: http://bit.ly/p0Wm0S+Anthony Fox writes a serial fantasy/comedy on Google+ called Quest for the Hobo King. It's pretty funny, and a really neat idea. I like that with every installment comes a cute book cover -- complete with Google+ reviews! Anthony also regularly shares Circles of different MBTI personality types. I haven't tried adding the Circles yet, myself, but I wonder if you'd notice different types of posts in each one. I look forward to Anthony's analysis when he's completed all 16 Circles. For the latest installment of Quest for the Hobo King, click here: http://bit.ly/pMzPZM+Craig Newman has been in my Circles almost since the very beginning of my time on Google+. A writer for the Chicago Sun-Times as well as a journalism professor, Craig was part of that first wave of journalists who came to Google+ while invitations were still necessary, and he always has an interesting article or story to share. He's also very engaged with the community on Google+. I've run into Craig's comments on lots of different posts, and they're always well structured and insightful. If you're looking for a great conversation, posts he's commenting on are a great place to start. For those of you who have been with me since the first few Circle Sundays, you'll know that sometimes I share people whose content I wish was shared more on Google+ itself. Craig has been here a long time, but I want to see more of his thoughts and I think the boost in engagement will help with that.---That's it for this Sunday! As always, please feel free to send me your recommendations for #CircleSunday via the "Send an email" link on my profile. I love hearing from y'all.Happy Plussing!Christina Trapolino shared a circle with you.2011-10-24 00:33:234020733
Jeff Smith9,411Ok here it is, the Selfy Sunday circle share.All of these fine folks submitted a self portrait for this past Selfy Sunday Oct. 9/11 and will likely submit more because this is "the" best themed photography project on Google+.Make sure you add this circle and follow them in the future as we do more Selfy Sundays....or just join in yourself.you have to excuse me, I might have missed 2 or 3 people according to the count, if your have been missed let me know.cc. +Gil D.

Christina Trapolino16,448This is a grab bag of a shared CircleThis Circle is the one you see displayed on my profile. It has big names you probably already follow, like +Chris Pirillo, +Mike Elgan, and +Marshall Kirkpatrick (so it's a decent Circle for a new G+ user you know). It also includes everyone ever featured in my Circle Sunday posts (so it's a great Circle for you if you root for the little guy).Artists, musicians, journalists, G+ enthusiasts, social media experts, photographers...they're all here. Famous, not famous -- all talented or interesting in one way or another!Enjoy and as always, Happy Plussing!Christina Trapolino shared a circle with you.2011-10-01 21:15:4559271634

Borderlands 2 Odyssey

I never played a game, almost exclusively, for a year before. Maybe a few weeks, but never with this protracted level of investment over time. Also, while I've been a gamer most of my life, I had never played co-op before Borderlands 2. I started with an assassin, solo, for six months...following the storyline in the main game and DLCs, exploring Pandora, not at all paying attention to achievements or challenges.

The thing is, I was getting bored (or frustrated) with the game. Mostly, as it turned out, because playing Zero didn't really suit my game style. So, I created a siren. And also started playing co-op. Those two changes brought Borderlands 2 back to life for me. Maya is more fun, with a kickass skill tree...and the teamwork in co-op play added a wonderful, new dimension to gaming for me.

We plowed our way back through everything,... more »

Okay, Gearbox...over nerf this one now

Near as I can tell from inspecting all of my inventory, a lot of shields have been nerfed, including the Avalanche. However, it yields nearly 30% more roid damage than my excessively nerfed Shooting Star.

I took it for a spin in Tycho's Ribs. I used to be able to run amok in there without ever using my Aspis or going down. No more. However, I did manage to reach Eleseer without dying and slaying everything on my way.

Unless anyone knows better, I guess this is the new must-have melee shield.

Is it just me?

Note that I am nigh on to a rage quit with the Pre-Sequel after the uber-nerf of the Shooting Star shield. However... deep breath, another deep breath, chanting and more chanting ...am I the only person deeply disappointed that a playable Jack is ONE of our FOUR DLCs under the season pass?

Really? A playable character equals a new map?

I Am Frickin' Pissed!
Shooting Star nerfed beyond the pale

Okay, okay...Athena + Shooting Star + Moxxi Probe was, ahem, a tad OP in the game. Great fun, yet probably too easy to slice and dice your merry way. Never even really used my Aspis except to revive teammates. 

And I anticipated they would nerf this shield. I simply didn't anticipate by how much. I wish I had a screenshot of this shield before the nerf, but trust me when I say it was just shy of 100k. I had other Shooting Stars with higher roid damage, but I ran amok with this one because of the recharge delay and rate. You want this shield down as long as possible.

Now... sniffle, sniffle, rage, rage ...it's not even 7% of its former glorious roid damage. I could deal with, accept, say 20-25% of former damage, but this is fucking ridiculous.

I am truly and royally pissed...more »

Slightly soiled from ass-sniffing?

Is it just me...or does anyone else feel, well, violated when players run up to you to inspect your gear?

"Oh, my, where did you get that?"

"How did you get so much legendary gear?"

"Would you dupe that for me?"

In BL2, the bulk of the hours I consumed playing the game were spent in co-op play, jumping into public games and helping people. I enjoyed that a great deal. And, if they weren't total putzes and asked nicely, I was always happy to dupe gear for them. Most of the Steam friends I play with now I met this way.

Now, I find myself hardly playing public games in the Pre-Sequel. This new feature has turned players into dogs...who like to sniff strange ass. Meh. I don't like.

Then again, maybe it's just me...

Ecstatic Farewell to ClapCrap

I know there are folks who adore ClapCrap. In BL2 he was mildly annoying, but as a playable character he was downright despicable. Ugh. The only reason I played him was for the achievement and I stuck with him up to level 25 and as many frustrating hours. I even dislike playing co-op with this little putz because of the way his random routines can negatively affect your play.

So long, ClapCrap. I will miss you not one iota.

Secret Minecraft Super Mario Room
Use jumpad to reach the Z8N-TP Mission

Take the lift (marked by the waypoint) and it will transport you into a hidden Minecraft room. Kill everything and the loot room will open. I did this three times and all I got was white/green trash. Meh.

Also, next to the second lift (to the right of the lift marked), you can use the jumpad to reach the Claptrap who gives you the Z8N-TP mission.

Uber Melee Athena
Gladiator with a skill to kill

Haven't posted or checked in for two days as I've been on a push to complete TVHM. I've never been much of a melee player, but I have to say I've been having a fricking blast with this particular build for Athena.

A couple of caveats...this build will do you little good unless you have the Shooting Star shield (melee Bee), plus a Moxxi Probe (Grog Nozzle). However, if you have those two items and some decent gear, this build is nigh on invincible.

The level 50 Shooting Star I have has just over 100K roid damage. Pay attention to that number, folks. It isn't a typo. It means you can one-strike most anything, including super badasses and rabid stalkers. Yes, rabid stalkers...that we all love to hate. I've even 1-2ed some of the raid bosses with this build. It will also whittle down Zarpedon... more »

It will also whittle down Zarpedon and the Sentinel in fairly short order if you get critical hits.

Note that I avoided anything to do with buffing my shield because you want your shield to go down to get the roid damage. And I completely ignored the Ceraunic Storm skill tree in order to cap out on Phalanx and Xiphos.

Besides the obvious fun of Athena's Aspis, it also acts very similar to Maya's phaselock revive skill, but even better because it can give second winds to all your teammates, not just one player. Additionally, capping out on Xiphos gives you a melee dash (farther and faster than Zero in my opinion) that resets with each kill.

If you think you have a better melee build for Athena, please hit me with a comment and a screenshot post. I'm open to suggestions!

Aspis/Gun merge with Athena
A Claptrap .exe effect? Or a glitch?

This was very bizarre, especially when you're in the throes of putting down the Sentinel. I'm just curious if anyone else has experienced it, too.

If you've played Athena, then you know the Aspis hangs more to your left when you use the skill, yet I was consistently getting this effect yesterday on my way to completing the story line.

Kraggon raid boss coughs up this legendary
Iwajira in Serenity's Waste

I think I was around level 25-26 when I hopped on a Stingray and made my way to this guy's lair. He's also great for some quick XP...good for roughly 3 bars each go...and I farmed him until I hit level 30.

Sadly, this is the only legendary he ever dropped for me...three times. He also seems to drop around 15-20 moonstones, along with the typical scattering of miscellaneous gear.

Preloaded and rarin' to go!

I never pre-ordered a game on Steam before, so I was more than pleasantly surprised to find out you can preload the game. It finished downloading yesterday and I am now good to go the moment the game is unlocked.

Look forward to seeing you on the moon!

I think I got my money's worth

And, except for one almost rage quit (picture that lift puzzle in Lair of Infinite Agony), I enjoyed every minute of it. Also, BL2 was the first game I ever played co-op, which is ultimately what really hooked me on the game and where I spent the bulk of those monstrous hours.

Heartily looking forward to the Pre-Sequel and fully expect I'll be posting a similar screenshot in the future.

I quite happily plopped my money down the other day for the Pre-Sequel, as well as the season pass, and now I'm just counting down the days.

Claptrap Gameplay

I posted this video the day it was released and then noticed yesterday that it was somehow randomized into thin air. Maybe there's more to Vaulthunter.exe than we've been told.

Anyway, the more I read and see about Claptrap, the more I wonder whether we'll continue to love him or love to hate him as a playable character...and on a co-op team. The on-screen animations for his action skill are annoying and distracting, at least to me. Tackling a raid boss with Claptrap, solo or co-op, will be either very frustrating or a huge Noooooooooooooooooooooo!!

I do look forward to seeing how this plays out, though...

Vaulthunter.exe = ???
Torgue Fiesta • Funzerker • Laser Inferno
One Shot Wonder • Shhhhhhh-trap • Rubber Ducky

The video is a good slo-mo breakdown of all the minutae to be found in the latest Pre-sequel trailer. The devs promise Claptrap will be fun to play and who am I to naysay, but randomizing his action skill?

What do you think?

Nisha Gameplay
Cowgirl with a whip, aimbot and the will to Showdown

I still plan to do my first playthrough with Athena, but this video pretty much put Nisha second in line. With the right gear and build, she looks to be more than formidable.

Athena Gameplay
Gladiator with attitude and a boomerang

This video also previews two of the vehicles available in the game. The moon buggy seats two players, while the bike seats only one. I believe the devs stated the bike is the fastest vehicle in the game, as well as up to four Stingrays can be operating at the same time. I think that may make for some interesting co-op play.

Pre-purchase Pre-sequel?

Have you? I haven't. Yet. And not sure whether I will or not. Yesterday, a Steam friend who is from Taiwan told me he pre-purchased the game for $40 USD, which seems to me a pretty good deal compared to the Gamestop price shown below.

Who will you play first?

Okay, so we don't really know yet what to expect from a playable Claptrap, but I have to say that in all likelihood he would be the last character I would choose to begin playing in the Pre-Sequel.

Also, I'm not typically a big fan of melee characters (or melee-based games), so at this point I'm leaning heavily towards starting the Pre-Sequel with Athena. Her Kinetic Aspis action skill strikes me as way cooler than the other characters.

You will find three earlier posts with links to the skill trees for Athena, Nisha and Wilhelm. Have a look at those and then, based on what we know at this point, who do you think you'll play first?

Slag-Licked in under a minute
Wildlife Exploitation Preserve at OP8

Kinda funny that the first and only video capture I've ever tried happened to catch this challenge while I was farming BAR. I was mostly just kind of curious about the Iris app. For some reason, it's video only, no audio.

I do show my gear real quick for this run, but it was basically ShamFleet all the way...working on rocket launcher challenges...Splish-Splash, Catch-a-Rocket, Gone with the Second Wind, Shield Basher, etc., and stalkers of course. (Catching a Tubby would've been asking too much.)

Not sure I'd plop down $40 for the Iris app to get rid of the watermark...

Borderlands 2 Odyssey

I never played a game, almost exclusively, for a year before. Maybe a few weeks, but never with this protracted level of investment over time. Also, while I've been a gamer most of my life, I had never played co-op before Borderlands 2. I started with an assassin, solo, for six months...following the storyline in the main game and DLCs, exploring Pandora, not at all paying attention to achievements or challenges.

The thing is, I was getting bored (or frustrated) with the game. Mostly, as it turned out, because playing Zero didn't really suit my game style. So, I created a siren. And also started playing co-op. Those two changes brought Borderlands 2 back to life for me. Maya is more fun, with a kickass skill tree...and the teamwork in co-op play added a wonderful, new dimension to gaming for me.

Maya is more fun, with a kickass skill tree...and the teamwork in co-op play added a wonderful, new dimension to gaming for me.

We plowed our way back through everything, sometimes alone, sometimes on a team, picking up lots of goodies along the way and finally topping out at OP8. This Maya is about five months old now. About a month ago, we snagged a perfect game by completing all the achievements. Yesterday, we (finally) managed to get the first Prestige in challenges.

I suspect I'm way behind the curve on reaching these milestones. I simply didn't care in the beginning. But I've had a blast getting there and I'm more than a little tickled at how the game continues to challenge, please and entertain. I don't know how long it will take me to Prestige this character again, but I suppose that will be part of the ongoing odyssey.

At least, until come fall...when the pre-sequel begins...

Big Bang Theory falls afoul in China

The Chinese internet is abuzz after some American TV shows have apparently been axed (since yesterday) by a stricter content policy by the government. The Big Bang Theory, The Good Wife, The Practice and NCIS are four of the shows I've seen mentioned so far. Numerous video websites now show “due to [government] policy reasons, this video is unable to be viewed.”

I'm a little surprised House of Cards, which is hugely popular over here, hasn't been axed, too. Especially the second season which has a fairly negative Chinese presence.

The second photo is a still from a Chinese TV series showing a Chinese kungfu master ripping a Japanese soldier in half with his bare hands. Every day, pretty much all day, you can watch the Japanese devils getting their due at the hands of avenging Chinese.

The second photo is a still from a Chinese TV series showing a Chinese kungfu master ripping a Japanese soldier in half with his bare hands. Every day, pretty much all day, you can watch the Japanese devils getting their due at the hands of avenging Chinese.

Following are some of the comments I've run into on the internet...

I suggest they just broadcast Japanese devils being ripped in half with bare hands epics everyday!

What content is in The Big Bang Theory? Is it very yellow, very violent? If it isn’t, then why take it down? Learning from North Korea?

In 1987, China’s first email marked China’s entry into the Internet Age, and the content of that email was “Across the Great Wall we can reach every corner in the world. (越过长城,走向世界)”. Just how much of a joke that looks today.

Even if all foreign shows are taken down, I still won’t watch [domestic] brainwashing TV shows and garbage TV shows!

Are we only allowed to watch various ridiculous TV shows about abusing Little Japan?

I thank the government and thank the Party! For truly going through a lot of trouble for the people!

Even The Big Bang Theory…are you serious?

Sheldon sometimes mentions China, and does so in ridicule or as a joke. If this were to come from the mouths of politicians, then I think I would not be comfortable hearing it. But this is from the mouth of Sheldon, whose emotional quotient is 0. Americans making fun of you means China is constantly expanding its influence in America. This is the mentality of amusement of Americans, and China instead pettily refuses to be made fun of. May I ask, where is the self-confidence and charisma of China as a large country/major power? I don’t see it. I’m very disappointed.

BTW, one of the comments asked if The Big Bang Theory is very yellow. What we (used to) call blue movies in the West are called huang pian, or yellow movies in China...because, if you watch yellow movies, then you're seeing a lot of yellow skin.___

Battling Myopia

Students at a primary school in Wuhan (Hubei province) returned to school after the winter holiday and found a little extra added to their desks. School officials say the bars will help the students form better reading habits and reduce near-sightedness. (Numbers vary, but I've seen reports citing as high as 80% of high school graduates suffering from myopia.)

BTW, this particular class is comprised of "left-behind" children whose parents are migrant workers in far-flung corners of China.

Play on Steam?

Running BL2 and all DLCs on a Mac Mini via Steam. Have an OP8 Siren and happy to help folks level up. Currently working on a Zerker (I think lvl 70) and a Zero (lvl 68?).

I failed to stash all my top lvl 72 gear as I was leveling up my Siren, so willing to trade/dupe some good OP8 gear for any 72 gear for my zerker and assassin.

My Steam name is: txediter

OP8 Weapons Trade?

Growing a tad tired of the incessant farming in order to get some things I want. I have a fair collection of OP8 gear...and only interested in trading for OP8 gear.

Particularly interested in a grounded Bee. Also, shock Infinity. Or, offer what you have. Can provide a screen shots.

I have:
Norfleets-Puissant Shock & Corrosive (Logan's Gun (lvl 61) included, but it's for resupplying rockets, not about the level)
Sham shield- top absorb rate
Hoplite shield
Bee shields- high capacity or high amp damage or faster RR/RD

I"ve played entirely solo up to this point (level 50), but looking for folks who'd like to hook up if you don't mind someone who's a newb at co-op. (I'm running via Steam on a MacMini if that makes any difference.) Particularly looking to work together to farm legendary weapons.

And just for fun of course!
