I have been following this game for a while and it will probably be a buy for me.

Has anyone else in this forum been waiting for this baby to hit the shelves?

Any way here is a video of one of the characters in the game. I thought it was pretty comical.

I have been following this game, but actually the more I see of it the less interested I am in it. There is a lot of potential here and I am sure I will give it a try a some point.

I am just the opposite of you regarding Borderlands, the more I see the more I want to get my hands on it.

I really like the cell-shade type graphics and I was a big fan of Crack Down.

I like that Borderlands will take a FPS and add some depth into the game with the RPG element. Throw in 4 player co-op and I'm pretty sure this game will satisfy my gaming itch.

Actually it has my interest piqued as well. More than ODST does anyway if only b/c its differant and they really REALLY have this cool groove going on w/ the video clips they have been showing. The one previous to this one should a bit of gameplay - it had a really good tune playing behind it.

I'm very interested to see how this turns out. I'll buy it if it reviews decently.

There's a lot of potential here, but I'm a little concerned that this game will degenerate into an endless series of randomly generated fire-fights with little variation. It certainly looks cool, but we'll have to see if it has the "hook" that makes it addictive or if it just feels repetitive.

Same here. When I saw the trailer, I thought this game would be sick with the weapon combinations and co-op. The more I've read and seen about it lately has got me less and less interested.

I'm definetly very interested. Especially seeing the recent vehicle combat video. Seeing them run some one over was pure win.

Does anyone know if it will have local co-op play?

I hope you played hellgate london then. I loved that game for the short time I played it.. It's a pity they close the servers down. I never got to play it with the graphics settings very high though =(

I enjoyed it. My rig could barely handle it.. I couldn't run with teams or anything.. All settings all the way down heh.. I would turn the settings way up and stand in one spot and enjoy the beauty every now and then..

It had problems but they were patching them up.. Before it died there was supposed to be a patch that was pretty important.. That patch never got released.

I hope boderlands kicks ass.. I enjoy fps/rpg type games. Even though cod4 is hardly an rpg/fps gaining exp for kills kept me playing for quite a while.

There has been a good amount of press on the weapons and gore, but I'd like to know more about the RPG side of things. GameInformer had a small preview on it that gave a bit more insight, but not much.

Only downside I see to this game is its almost on top of MW2's launch date. A few weeks past when this releases and most will be running around a diff't battlefield.

@ jopopsy

you are so right. with the imminent release of mw2 it puts a dampner on the possible success of this game. too bad it doesnt come out this month. i'd much rather pick this up than odst. :O

Any start thinking of cartmen on that video from the OP?
I'm so confused to as what the game is really about through I like that part in the prview article where it says the demo we had was limited to only the first 15 levels.

Honestly, if there is any game out there that reminds me of Borderlands, it's.... Far Cry 2. Just the open ended style of it.

Now, I love Far Cry 2. So I'm not complaining. But I bet a lot of people (including many of the defenders in the Kotaku comments... I don't know why I keep going back to read those idiots) will be very disappointed in it.

I hated Far Cry 2. I'm really hoping this isn't like Far Cry 2. I feel like this is Diablo (loot) meets Fallout 3 (atmosphere) meets shooter. The quests may be redundant (but you know, many of WoW's are the same and that will never be confused w/ Far Cry 2), but I think the real thrust of the game will be the co-op/multiplayer.

Enjoy.

I was anxious for this until they completely changed the game's graphics. Now it looks horrible. The original was mouth dropping awesome, I think it was a stupid decision to change it. This could of been the blockbuster game, but now it will not be as popular among everyone.

The original graphic style made the game look like every 3rd one under the sun. The new ones put it apart from everything else, they give the game an identity. And according to Gearbox, the game was sort of muddling around until they discovered this style. It revitalized the game's development.

I give Gearbox credit for doing the game their way and seeing what happens.
