Im surprised noone here has asked a very special question, regarding Aurora...unless i missed it. So I'll ask and hope Joey addresses this soon.


Will Aurora see a Dark, Halloween theme design in the coming weeks, before Halloween? If so...will that update be labled 1.7?

Mkay. Lets see if Joey can answer this one. ^_-

according to Joey, theses no Halloween plans. But they ARE preparing to release something scary this month

Alright! Sorry for the rdio silence, it's been a long weekend of Borderlands 2!


So, a couple of questions to answer...


First off, The level cap / buying blimps question that SmokingPistol first asked. I really cannot give a definitive answer due to the fact that a level cap raise has not been confirmed. What I will say is that we have a way of knowing what XP peope have earned since reachinng level 100 so there is a way to do it...and as far as im concerned, if you purchase a blimp at level 100 and the level cap does get raised, you should get that XP...


Next question: Haloween. We have no plans to change the Aurora scene for Haloween this year. Don't be too dissapointed though, hopefully next week should see the release of some clothing and a new personal apartment that will fit the haloween theme perfectly. Check out nDreamers Twitter from Friday where I showed a sneak peak of the clothing. More details to follow on those in the PlayStation Blog next week!


Anything else ...? :-)

What info can you give about this Cloud Hunter game?

Also, on Xi island, there is writing near the bottom of the stairs (the ones you can't access) is it Chinese, Japanese?

Is it random characters or does it say something?


Also, please confirm that there was a flock of flying Vincents at Aurora, a friend thinks I'm nuts....Smiley Tongue

There is a flock of Vincents flying around Aurora.  Stand on the dancefloor and watch over the Blimps game.  Take out your camera and hit L2 to zoom.  All the more reason to mount machineguns on top of the blimps.  Speaking of...


I find the Blimps game pretty boring and without purpose.  What actually did mount machineguns on the blimps?  Make the playing area larger.  Have upgradable blimps and weapons.  The blimps you could upgrade for speed, manuverability, cornering, radar, rear-view, armor,...the usual stuff.  The weapons too, the usual type of upgrades like heatseekers, gattling gun cannon, fireballs, lightning, long-range, etc...  You could keep it a game of tag, but the person that is "it" is everyone else's target.  Give them 10 lives and their score is based on how long they survive.  Include rewards for staying alive longer.  30 seconds and you get a(nother) t-shirt, 45 seconds and you get an upgraded weapon, 60 seconds and you get a skywriting biplane declaring you are a Blimp's god in the sky above Aurora, 75 seconds and you get, well, you get the idea.  Sure would encourage purchase of those upgrades and make that game a whole Bunch-O-Fun.  Smiley Happy  Dean
