Just bought Borderlands 2 since I got my new gaming PC and it simply won't come up after trying to launch it, anyone know how to fix this?

Is it telling to to install something over and over?

Yeah, same problem here. Steam says it needs to update it, yet the time until ready is always 0 seconds. No idea what's going on.

Preparing to launch, then disappears and nothing ever comes up or starts any background processes. Torch 2 and Xcom are working so far since I just installed them.

Try restarting steam and in the launch option type in "-NoLauncher" (without the "'s of course).

Okay yeah this was brought up yesterday. It's an easy fix. Rightclick on the game and go to settings and your going to want to verifify the game. It will download a small file to fix it.

You did restart STeam right? You have to close it completely not just hit the X as that doesn't close it. It might need to update or something.
Because **** You is why

And now I'm kicking myself for not thinking of that. Thanks, that did it.
