I saw this earlier, decided to bite on it. Was googling to see if splitscreen was possible on the pc version, and if there was anything said about bringing the DLC to the PC(preferably for free).

ugh not cheap enough for free shipping...

Do I want to wait till tomorrow at 10 to see if steam has this on sale? Or should I buy this with a 4GB flash drive (which I kinda want/need)?

Damnit. I already ordered this from GameStop. I fucking hate GameStop. It's too late to cancel my order.

I would have much rather bought this from Amazon.

I'm surprised it's already down to 20. It's a pretty new game, but was also pirated a lot.

Which means they forced that pretty hardcore DRM onto the game and legit customers for no reason whatsoever... again.

I have over 4 days logged on my 360 saves. I'm picking this up to play with friends and for the current/inevitable mods on the PC version.

I thought all the DRM on Borderlands did was release date check and disc check? Either way I grabbed this up using my $20 credit from MW2. Hopefully I can meet up with some folks that had been playing it already from my WoW guild :) I hear its like Diablo with Guns which sounds pretty awesome to me.

Christ, I knew I should have waited. The price dropped before I could even get multiplayer to work with my friends! Grrrrr.

Got for $34 from steam cause of that pre-order deal on the 4-pack and it was well worth the money. Fantastic game with 25+ hours of fun. It's a steal at this price.

And I read on the Gearbox forums that they have found a fix for the online problems people are having. So hopefully that'll be released soon.

Does this require the disc in the drive in order to play it?

Tempted, but passing because I don't want to have SecuRom DRM installed on my PC. Hoping the Steam version will be on sale sometime in the next few days.

Yes.
Retail disc version does.

Yep, it has Securom protection - including a release date check, required activation (per every time you install it), and a disc check for when you boot the game.

Either way I grabbed this up using my $20 credit from MW2. Hopefully I can meet up with some folks that had been playing it already from my WoW guild :) I hear its like Diablo with Guns which sounds pretty awesome to me.

Yep - it's basically a FPS meets ARPG. It's awesome.

Yes, they have - and another PC patch is coming, whenever that might be. They are working on that.

And Gearbox announced they are bringing the Zombie Island DLC to the PC, as well - we don't know details yet of how it'll be distributed, its cost (I bet it'll cost $10 like the console versions), and all of that.

Most of the Borderlands PC players are playing it on GamerRanger, since GR is unofficially supporting the game. Over 200-300 servers usually going a day. If you can't get it going on GameSpy w/out opening ports or anything, try GameRanger - works fine for me on GR w/out changing any settings. GR even works for those w/ retail and Steam copies of the game. :)

Looks like the deal is dead now, back to $40.

I'll have to remember that as I just picked this up for myself and my brother. Will be good to know if we have trouble. Thanks.
