Axton has quickly moved up my list of favorite characters in BL2, his turret action skill is quite good on its own, but with the right skills and weapons you can do the work of two players by yourself.
First the Survival Tree, I'm not a big fan of this.
You can see the relative offensive weakness of this build at about 4:45 in the video I throw a turret on each side of a basic loader, and I still have to kill it myself. I don't recommend the turret without the rocket pods. :) If you had 3 more points you could get the Scorched Earth rocket pods too. So with the 11 levels coming April 2, that's what I'd suggest first. If I did this over, I'd probably go with the rockets over the longbow just for the damage boost, but mag-lock without longbow is not very useful and Battlefront (extra damage when the turret is out for all your guns and grenades) is just so damn useful that I can't really recommend either version of this build unless you get the level cap DLC and get all 3 this build falls apart.
Now the Guerilla tree, the fun starts to pick up.
This is a good damage build with decent survivability. It allows the turret to slag, which is useful and will be even better in the upcoming third play through. The turret also has rocket pods and a shield. As far as Axton himself, he gets to carry 5 extra grenades and his shield will be recharging quickly most of the time. This is a good build that will only get better with the 11 new levels, allowing you to either add longbow and battlefront or get the twin Gemini turrets. Very versatile.
Finally we get to Gunpowder. NUKE!
This build is a great all around build as well, you still get the rocket pods from Guerilla and a good amount of defense, but you get a ton of DPS both from your nuke turret (basically an awesome, rechargeable grenade) and the use of the Battlefront skill. You'll note the Kerblaster assault rifle in the video shoots a projectile that explodes, drops a grenade and explodes again. This works with all the grenade damage boost skills too so this is my current favorite high DPS build. With 11 more skill points you can reach the slag turret too (double up, at the bottom of Guerilla tree) which will make this build very useful for the third play through. Also, nuking things is fun. :)

Apparently I'm S.O.L. and this shit is impossible to find or make.
I started gaming more with my PC lately. I'm pretty happy with my existing keyboard for office use... programming, writing stories, etc. But I kind of want a full-on mechanical keyboard with the tactile feedback and precision that it comes with. However, I've gotten used to the split layout of the Microsoft Natural keyboard 4000, seen here.
Great for typing, not such a good gaming board. I went looking for the unicorn, a mix of mechanical function and ergonomic form. Here's what I found.Read full story...
A short video announcing the existence of another God of War game... this time a prequel to the trilogy coming to the PS3.
Here's what Sony has to say about this game:
God of War® fans rejoice! Infamous Spartan warrior Kratos is preparing to return to the PlayStation®3 system. This brand new trailer marks the official unveiling to the world of forthcoming game, God of War: Ascension™.
The most ambitious God of War adventure in the series so far, God of War: Ascension takes us right back to where it all began. Discover the origins of Kratos as he takes his first steps on a now legendary quest for freedom and vengeance.
I think we haven't been shown anything yet, and I don't understand what they are doing with these announce trailers that show nothing (not even a release window) in the middle of April. Save it for E3, Jimmy!
The Elder Scrolls MMO has been moved from 2013 to 2014.
Based on the press release that Bethesda put out around E3, we've moved the expected launch year of ESO from 2013 to 2014. It will also be released on PS4 and Xbox One then. Still no firm date, though Bethesda specifies "Spring" we don't put such vague references in our catalog.
According to Ed Boon, the PC version of MK9 is selling above expectations. Good news for PC FGC fans?

So it looks like the experiment is going well... I hope this means we will see injustice and other future games released on PC, hopefully the same day as the console versions.
