I'm really digging the graphics. Before it was realistic-ish looking but we already have enough of those right now.

Same for me minus ratchet and AC and plus tekken 6. I'm hoping for B2G1 to get this, T6 and uncharted 2, then codmw2 for Christmas. That would be awesome but I won't get my hopes too high.

I'm feeling this game is going to be like a full fledged R2 online coop, which I absolutely loved. I'm really hoping this won't disappoint.

-Know there's forever lasting appeal and replayability

One question: have we seen anything on the PS3 version?

Every preview I've seen has been either 360 or PC. I can't seem to dig up any PS3 info on borderlands, google/bing just comes up with the same stuff over and over again.

Does this bother anyone else?

Im really excited about this game. I'm probably going to use my Brutal Legend $10 credit on it, as long as Amazon adds some sort or preorder bonus to it.

I love the graphic/art style, and Im a sucker for couch co-op gaming.

Really undecided about this game. I love the graphics and setting (still love Fallout 3), but I can't decide on gameplay and a lot of the intangibles (intangible without playing, like fun factor). I'm hoping the review scores are great and push me to grab it. Really saddened that they chose to not release a pre-release demo.

I remember reading about this in Game Informer a loooong time ago. It looked very exciting then but, so did a lot of other games. Maybe I'm the only one who got super hyped before I bought a next gen system and then when the games actually came out, I was extremely disappointed. I hope to be proven wrong.

Anyone else picking this up tomorrow on PS3? I'd love to get some co-op going.

Also, you can check out the skills and make builds if you want here:
http://www.borderlan...ltree/mordecai/

Replace "mordecai" in the link with Brick, Lilith, or Roland to get to the other characters.

Here's a mordecai build that focuses mainly on the Sniper Rifle. Start with a critical headshot that penetrates shields, get a quick kill then get huge damage boosts for the next shot, and pistol upgrades for close combat. No focus on the pet

Really excited to play this tomorrow, going to spend TRU trade in credit on it.

Nah, havent seen anything unless you are interested in the PC version. Theres a 4 game bundle for $33 or something around there that you can split with 3 others.

It's a bummer Amazon didn't have a $10 credit

They are vastly different kinds of games with similar settings imo.

Fallout is heavy on RPG elements (deeper character customization, slow combat, etc) while Borderlands is infinitely more FPS-like. Really shouldn't be compared.

I don't like how I can't fully immerse myself in this game.. I can shoot enemies, but I can't shoot items on the ground, items on tables, dead bodies, etc.. I think that's why I liked Fallout so much, it actually felt like a living, breathing world. Well, I use the term "living" loosely, but still. I can't fully immerse myself.

Even so, it's cool. It's just like an FPS but with leveling up. Think of Fallout 3 minus the VATS system.. kinda plays like that.

I ended up getting this for the 360, to play with my brother and read on the gearbox forums that there are lots of issues with the PS3 version.


If you've ever played WoW, or any recent MMO, you'll immediately feel right at home. I absolutely love the game so far, I've played probably 3 hours total and have already used 30 or more different guns. Just played my first co-op game with two others and it is an absolute blast. While there are stats to worry about on your guns and you are doing quests, it really is an FPS at heart, and it's a really fun one at that.

Glad I'm picking mine up for the PC; it seems the PS3 version has completely broken co-op among other issues.

Ugh. Hopefully they patch this soon. It will be awhile before i potentially grab it, now I have to be on the look out for info that they have fixed it.

Well that makes it a harder decision. I would rather play it on the PS3 but seems the PC version may actually work for co-op. Any word from the developer about a fix for the co-op issues on the PS3?

WORD ON IT! YES! Haha...

"Believe it or not, the friends feature was heavily tested by Gearbox and 2K," Velasquez writes. "However, this particular issue we found could have never manifested itself in our or 2K's test environments."

"We'll find out very soon if the issue exists for the PS3 International versions of the Borderlands. If it does, we'll hopefully have a fix implemented before it affects those customers," he says. "We are doing everything we can to get this problem addressed as quickly as possible."

Velasquez addresses the timing of that fix later in the thread, saying "The only thing I can say is that we're exploring all options of getting the fix out ASAP!"

I played single player for around 2-3 hours and didn't notice any issues.

randy and I played coop for around 3-4 hours last night.
He invited me and I assume he didn't have any issues doing that.
The only issue I experienced was what seemed like VOIP sensitivity issues.
randy was having some sound stuttering and his game did freeze once.
Other than that, neither of us experienced any lag nor any other problems.

I didn't try joining a public game but did look at my friends list and could see everyone (I guess... I didn't double check to make sure :lol:).
