Then how do you begin a playthrough with her? And I thought I saw an ECHO featuring her in YouTube, are you sure it doesn't appear in the game?

This is cool, and I get it free thanks to the premiere club! If anyone in the UK is going to buy the game, shop around and you can find the premiere club one cheaper than the normal copy.

at the start screen where your character is stood and claptrap does his stuff behind you like falling down the waterfall you press Y(or Triangle i guess on PS3) and a pop up screen appears and you can select 'Necromancer new game',then when your old character has left the screen,you then select 'new game'

It's the same when you wanted to start a new character before the DLC was out..and the way you can pick up the remaining achievements for the other classes


and all i can say is that Gaige does not have an ECHO device on her like the other 4 did at the start of the game giving us a bit of background on the character

Her ECHO logs were released as YouTube videos. Here is the first one. The link to the second one can be found on the same page.

Randy Pitchford must be Randy Pitchingatent with all the money he's making on DLC. This game isnt even released in some parts of the world yet and yet here we are three weeks after the UK release date getting a new character class?

I laughed so hard my left eye just burst
Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.

Remember when some artist bloke pointed out on Twitter that his work had been plagiarised in Borderlands 2?

Well, here's Aika from Skies of Arcadia:

We were playing on 360 last night, and Gearbox, in their infinite wisdom, have made it so those of us that didn't have the DLC installed couldn't play with people that have. So basically, if you don't have the preorder edition with the mechromancer, you can't play with all the people who do. Or you have to stump up 800 MSP.

f**king idiots. Split your customers right at the very beginning. I know you can still get the version with the DLC, but for how much longer? I hope they fix this so that non DLC owners can at least play with the DLC owners, if not it's got to be one of the shittiest DLC practices to date - and I expected a little more from Gearbox, so hope I'm wrong!
