||Something ventured, something gained
Posted on March 25th, 2012
|As per the plan, the day was spent playing Borderlands rather than working on any project. I got an unexpected surprise when the final showdown with Knoxx appeared; it came up earlier than I'd expected. Still won on the first go anyway. Later on I focused on Playthrough 2 a bit to see if I could find better equipment before moving on to the final DLC chapter.
I did find something: a better machine gun. Sadly that's one of the weapons I use the least, but it does have its uses. I'd prefer to find another weapon with unlimited ammo; my revolver has this feature but it's fairly weak. Oddly it's the most potent weapon I have thanks to being able to spray & pray. Of course, the fact it can also set most enemies alight tends to work in its favor too (particularly against Crimson Lance and skags). It was a weapon I found near the very end of Playthough 1, and still is the go-to weapon of choice.
On another note, there was a bit of a spook at dinner. The local hawk dropped in out of nowhere and landed on the fence right beside a couple of doves. Nobody saw it coming; not even the birds or small critters in the yard. Once everyone flew off in a panic, it glided over to the fence in back before disappearing for the evening.
Lastly, the link for the day is a weird little music number.
