    I’m so used to games sucking with the ambivalence of vacuums. I am so pleasantly surprised at how good Borderlands is. If it doesn’t get game of the year I will be even more surprised. Lvl 21 in a day isn’t bad. And replayability…I’ve missed stuff I know it. Totally going through it 3 more times once more with Roland and Twice with Lilith!

    I really do not praise games like this...like ever. The lack of originality that devs are pushing out these days really never makes me go ooooooooooooooh and ahhhhhhhhh.
    So take my feelings with a grain of salt if you wish. This is a good damn game!

    Only thing left to say is that I haven't stayed up past 2:30am playing a game since Resident Evil Nemesis. Yeahhhhhh son!

    How does the game scale in crossfire? My 4870 doesn't seem to cut it at 1920x1200 max settings so I was thinking maybe I need another...

    I know exactly what you mean lemode. I'm on level 6 so i havent played much but I am enjoying the game quite a bit. AION kept me up until the wee hours of the night and I am still loving that game very much even though I'm leveling slowly (21 Sorc). I used to be a hardcore action FPS gamer for many years. Quake series, Unreal series, Half Life series/CS/TF2/L4D, etc. I'm really starting to like RPG's, and with FPS combined, Boarderlands is perfect for my preferred style of play. :rockout:

    Ok, I tried to play for a "little while" to get use to the controls and stuff; then I ended up playing for 6 hours til 5 a.m. I really like it. It is Fallout 3 with less depression, more guns, and more character.

    Favorite thing. Watching Claptrap do the whole "oh my god, I'm dying" over the top acting.

    Must scale really well then. I'm running an Athlon II 240 only at 3.0ghz and a 4870x2 and I'm playing at 1920x1200 all maxed out and it's playing amazingly well, and your proc will crush mine, so game must be very GPU dependent.

    this game was optimized for nvidia cards. i put my 4890 in my old phenom x3 2.1 rig then tested my 250 and the 250 ran borderlands a lot smoother.

    Well I started playing the game today, and got to level 18 in one sitting with 2 friends... really really fun hey.

    It kind of reminds me of WOW in this weird kind of way (never played myself, seen many friends play) but OH so much more fun, as it's a first person shooter :D I hate games where you HAVE to use magic crap or fantasy melee weapons, guns ftw.

    can't wait to go back tomorrow and LAN it up some more :D

    I won't feel guilty for showing this awesome random loot drop I found @ lvl 2 on Mordecai. I like and hate this random gun generator...mainly becasue I didn't find anything purple randomly on Roland all day yesterday :mad: ! Mord is more my playstyle anyway so I doubt I will level Roland any further.

    I haven't yet come across a really good revolver like that with more than 2 shots per clip...

    speaking of which I'm up to 12 shots in a clip in my sniper rifle, that makes me happy :)

    I cant connect to a friends game and he cant connect to mine, we just time out, any ideas here?

    Try using a Repeater, those things own.

    Still waiting to use them :roll:

    I think I'm gonna start a new Mordecai and exclusively use Sniper Rifles and Shotguns. Here are my thoughts on pistols:

    Repeaters are only useful if they have a high rate of fire, and can be nicely effective against multiple lower-powered enemies at medium to close range.

    Revolvers are hard to use, have a low fire rate, high damage, but not worth using over Repeaters unless you're a crack shot at the head from a medium distance.

    As a Mordecai using a Sniper Rifle and Revolver, I found myself needing a lot of help with multiple enemies or fast enemies. It's hard when you pick off 1 or 2 enemies from long distance and get rushed by 3 or 4 more and all you have to defend yourself are your Bloodwing, Revolver, and Grenades, not to mention the point-blank no-scope sniper shots.

    This way, I can have my Sniper Rifle, a nice Shotgun, a Launcher, and one other weapon. Maybe a Rifle or SMG.
