Is it really so difficult for people to just not be pricks?

I ask that question pretty much everyday Mr Fish - i can't decide if the number of pricks in the world is growing exponentially or if i'm just getting less tolerant as i get older? :|

But yeah, yet another great advertisement for xbox live, and another reminder why i very rarely play with or against randoms in public matches, just not worth the hassle anymore. :roll:

In this case someone must have put a great deal of effort into being a prick and why? Save your energy and make the world a much nicer place by default.

How was this even possible? Surely there are safeguards in place to prevent illicit and unofficial code being introduced into the game and on Xbox Live? As far as I can tell this was created from a hacked save file. I just don't understand how they've introduced something that didn't previously exist in the game and it wasn't picked up by Gearbox.

As I understand it, it's for people who accept modded/duplicated items, so it's karma really. Stop cheating.

I posted about this in the BL2 forum. The modders toggled an option called "Badass mode" in the save file which enabled some code in the game that either wasn't finished or the idea was dropped. There's been some speculation about what "Badass mode" is; an invincibility mode for QA testers, a hardcore mode where you can't respawn, something connected to a future DLC, Gearbox aren't saying.

What happens is when you die and the "Fight for your life" meter runs out, instead of respawning all you can do is move the camera around. If you quit to dashboard or switch characters your save file is replaced with a file called "Graveyard.sav" which just has a few statistics about your level and how you died. What you should do instead is select Save and Quit from the pause menu, it'll tell you it can't save, but select to quit without saving anyway. At the main menu, select Continue and then when the game's loaded up, select Save and Quit to save a complete, but still infected, save file from the console's memory. Your save file should be fixed when you run the game after the patch is released. It isn't advisable to play the game with the infected character (and especially not over Live) until the fix is out.

There's a video showing what happens at: http://youtu.be/Glm_UL-Iqyg
I don't get the appeal at all. Like what do they do... say something stupid then read the replies while they touch themselves? - Vampyre_Ghost on trolls.

Apparently, it may also be partly affected by the greater internet f-wad theory (Normal Person + Anonymity + Audience = Total F-wad), although personally I just think most people are asshats. :)

It's why I'm often loathe to play games like borderlands with strangers, gonna be an arse finishing the 50+ group missions. :)
