- Shane (8/25/2014): Before I played Assault on Dragon's Keep I played through Mr Torgue's Campaign of Carnage. This was the first of the Borderlands 2 DLC that I tried actually. I started it before I had finished all of the main storyline, which was a very small mistake. There were a few small spoilers in this story that I won't post publicly because I try to not be a dick, when I can.
The thing that struck me most was that I loved the Mr. Torgue character. His childlike excitement for adrenaline is, in a word, awesome. Things in this man's world were excessive by design and obviously took constant effort to maintain. He is the personification of single-minded devotion to that which you love in a chaotic frontier full of murderers and psychopaths.
The content in this expansion is much of the same that you can find in the base Borderlands 2 game. That is probably part of why I loved it so. The story was a nice blast. There were one-on-one matches where things went wrong. The writing was top notch. The new weapons were... again, more of the same.
I am short on words to describe how contentedly cheerful I felt when I finished this DLC. I want to see the story again and interact with the characters more. If Mr. Torgue was a real person I would want to hug him. Then we could go out and blow up a car or something.
