Actually the shoot and loot concept has been done by the System Shock game years ago. Not to mention all the RPG's before it but they weren't FPS games though...

Can't wait. Smashed all of Borderlands and the DLC with a buddy, definitely looking forward to it. Here's hope for a beta test so they can get all the kinks worked out.

I played through the whole main story by myself, and most of the Zombie DLC. Then I picked up a friend and made a new character, and smashed through everything. It was quite fun.

Few Things...

First off I did not play B/L till steam had it on sale, and was one of the best games I have played in A long time. The only thing I dont like about games like this ... saves are not sever side. Its the whole Titan Quest again ( it needed its own battlenet) ... if your saves are on your comp .. ppl will cheat / dupe items ect ect.

If they just had their own severs ... this would own diablo 3, because ... yes because the diablo 3 beta SUCKs bring back the old skill trees ..( what are they thinking) ...

Long story short .. cant wait !

Borderlands was awesome. But i just with it had more variety of enemies, weapons and missions. At alot of points the game felt repetitive.

i found the first one kinda enjoyable the only thing that made me not want to play it was the graphic styling, i mean i understand useing that styling has a purpose but i seriosly cannt take a game seriosly when it resembles a cartoon, i remember watching the early builds or the original borderlands when they had the realistic approach, that would have been so much better. ill prob still pick it up and give it a go thought.
