Its great seeing this game get great reviews, looks like we have 2 sleeper hits this year. Congrats to Gearbox! Didnt think much of this game until now, but there are so many other good games..
Hopefully it gets the sales it deserves. Coming out this time of year with a bunch of big names hurts some of the lesser known great games.
Yeah it's really amazing how a few months ago it was quite calm, now I feel like we got slapped with all these great games coming out at once...
Agreed. The hits keep on coming. Based on a lot of videos, I like the gameplay already compared to Fallout 3. Although I still don't like the art style too much. I'm going to at least rent this game though.
and ready for pickup in the morning! Just love the replayability & gameplay!
but I can say so far so awesome. Just found myself a Jakobs rifle thats pretty sweeet. Didn't expect encounters to be this intense! I have to sleep for a few hours then back on my PS3 early in the morning.
Yeah I'm level 26 right now, there's going to be some fun times ahead of this one due to the massive damn amounts of loot and the co-op. I've yet to come across an orange named item though (ultra rare).
Well, I wasn't expecting these good scores. I was thinking it would average about 7.5. Looks like I was wrong. I'm sort of surprised with Gearbox's track record of "average" scoring games. I'm picking up my copy at 10am.
Now, im really itching to buy two copies for co-op. Oh, im wondering for those who have the game all ready. I know that there's an ability for loot disputes and you can "kill" your teammate for an item. Do they balance out the fight between two people with differing levels that are way far apart or does the one with the highest level always wins the duel???
I'm still on the fence regarding this game. I'm gonna wait it reach the bargain bin. It looks interesting and the FPS + RPG experience looks to be much better than Fallout 3, but I dont like this quote "While Borderlands and Fallout 3 share a similar apocalyptic, Road Warrior-esque setting, the former does a much better job of making you feel like a wasteland scavenger. Very few story elements are present, so you don't have a constant "I better get back to the main quest" feeling hanging over your head" An then "There's no disappearing family members or ominous government forces making you feel the need to progress through the story, only the desire to grow stronger and survive the myriad creatures populating Pandora" I can conclude game has no story to tell. Anyway I'll keep an eye on it.
What the hell is it with october/november and a rampant release of awesome games? Same as last year.
It should be obvious. A bunch of holidays occur during the fourth quarter so that's when publishers schedule their games to release.
Yeah but the onslaught doesn't stop once it gets into 2010. GoWIII, WKC, MAG, Bioshock 2, GT5, Splinter Cell Conviction, Mass Effect 2 etc. etc. etc.
why why why... was it delayed to the 30th here on PC *cries* and dragon age 6 days later, ho my
steam has a sale on pc.. 44usd for the game. in a way its good its coming 6 days later on the pc.. 15usd cheaper then consoles plus much higher res. also you get few days to look at the console reviews to see if the game is actually good.. before you invest the money on the pc and i am sure the steam discount will be there till the pc version is released, so its a good thing in a way.
another sleeper hit. i heard good things about this game so far from people who are waiting to buy it. when im done with the other games i bought this week, i'll probably buy this game next.
Damn, great score.. good job Gearbox
WOW. I'll definitely have to check this out myself....
Forza 3 + Borderlands on friday confirmed :) Sick combo!
i'm trading WET in for borderlands as i should of read the reviews before buying that game lol BL looks epic though
y did you say it got 9.25 when on the link it says it got 9.5?
oh wait. I was reading the second opinion lol. good review either way tho :)
finally, a new worthwhile title for discriminating 360-having gamers like myself. just hope this keeps me busy until Bioshock2 & Mass Effect2. I disagree with Sarcasm I think there's not much to be excited about until February (course I don't got no PS3 so...). crossing my fingers those 2 I listed don't get pushed back. Dragon Age looked interesting until I saw the backstory trailers for the different races. for ex: dwarf noble reveals uninspired art style (story seems interesting but look at those blocky, identical statues in the background - yeah right). another ex: city elf with the lame stolen-from-Braveheart I'm-gonna-lay-your-bride backstory.
playedfor 2 hours,nothing special,8 at best. but thats moo
