Fall is an extremely risky season to launch a new IP for video games. Don't tell that to 2K Games and Gearbox Software, though, because their long anticipated FPS/RPG hybrid, Borderlands, is finally available for the masses.
Now, if you think FPS/RPG and Fallout 3 comes to mind, you are kind of on the right track. Add in a healthy dose of Diablo to Fallout 3 and you have Borderlands, which equals out to be a first person shooter loot-fest. The higher your character levels up, the more you find yourself playing "just one more quest" to level up one more time and find a higher rated piece of weaponry.
