    I guess I'm one of the few people on this forum who wasn't impressed with Borderlands. I found it repetitive.

    The thing about Borderlands, is it is only fun with a group of friends. Its a game I enjoy a lot, but I would never ever play it solo.

    I loved borderlands but didn't like having to play the game all over to level higher. Ive played online and enjoy it as long as im with a group i can communicate with.

    can't wait for borderlands 2

    agreed. it isn't bad, but simply stale on solo. i never played multi but i can believe it is a lot more fun with other humans :)

    it is except for the bugs where if one person doesnt play nice, it gets annoying. like it only takes one person to move everyone to the next area, or how if one person is AFK in a menu, no one can.


    basically, the coop needed more polish imo.

    Thats why you play with friends and not randoms. Then sometimes it is fun and games locking teleporting with menus is a game, but you are all on skype, ts, vent laughing and having a good time.

    But thats true with ANY game. The fact you need a friend to enjoy Borderlands doesn't say much for the game IMO.

    Not really, almost all of the games I own are SP, or huge MP, not co-op. I buy almost all co-op games I can because there aren't a lot of good ones. And I feel that way about almost all of them, not much fun solo, infact I feel that way about most games now days anyways, hard for me to play SP games.

    Impulse are selling Dragon Age II for some silly low amount of dollars (12) by the looks of things. Not available in europe however.

    If you read my post well enough, then you would have gotten my drift. The horsepower gain of your cards compared to mine is much bigger than the additional work 1920x1080 will give compared to 1280x1024. It is only 600 pixels wider than what is basically a vertically bigger variety of 720p. The growth in horsepower of your setups is bigger than the growth in workload (at least in D3D 10 mode).

    I really hate how so many PC games are $60 now. Starcraft 2 I understand..years in the making. BF3? every EA shooter for the last 5years? Give me a break EA

    Thats an incorrect assumption, performance gain isn't linear.

    1280x1024 = 1,310,720 pixels
    1920x1080 = 2,073,600 pixels
    760k more pixels is a lot (saying it's "only 600 pixels wider" doesn't give credit to how much of a difference that really makes), and my old setup which I was referring to was dual 5850's at
    1920x1200 = 2,304,000 pixels

    But like I said, this was playing Max (really maxed). Like I said, anyone can play the game id they do adjust the settings down, but if you truly want to experience the game in all of it's glory, it's going to crush almost all systems out there.

    60 bucks is more then fair. They were 49.99 dollars for over 20 years. Maybe 30 years. If you adjust for inflation 60.00 dollars today is a deal. If you adjusted 49.99 (1985) it would be $104.05 today (2011)! So in reality you are getting games at 28.82 (1985) rates. Good deal if you ask me.

    Yeah but you got super cheap homosexual prostitutes in Australia due to abundance. So it all balances out.
