Borderlands

Postby MuscleMan » Tue Oct 27, 2009 9:47 am

Who else is playing this atm?

Really cool game, multiplayer rules hard. Feels like a better polished fallout3..

Its giving me really chronic motion sickness however, anyone else get this?

What you playin' this on Steve? I was considering getting the PS3 version but I don't really play FPS, from the reviews it sound like a cross between FPS games and Diablo. If I suck at all FPS games will I suck at this?

Hmm... you could probably breeze through unchallenged (as far as Ive seen...) and finish the game, HOWEVER if you want the cool shit (and who doesnt?!) you need to be fairly accurate on your crits (headshots). Alot of "boss" or "elite" level enemies will drop good loot, but drop the best loot from critical kills. Theres a few carebear builds for noobs though, like the soldiers spec ability tarantula turret can be spec'd to heal and restock ammo so you can stand and spam!

I will bring it up on my external for you this weekend if you want? --> Playing on PC.

never heard of this game until yesterday when a mate asked if i'd played.

looks pretty cool though, what's the multiplayer like? is it co-op? might have to look into it when i get my xbox fixed.

Currently playing as a Siren but spec'd for combat rifles and SMGs rather than shitty pistols. Must've scored a few mean critical kills early as I've got some seriously mean weapons that I haven't been able to top for quite some time (talking about 7 hours play since I got them).
Just met the archaeologist, I'm wondering how much more of the game I've got to go. Second play through is gonna be wicked.

Favourite part so far is blasting the midgets with an electrical weapon and watchin' them explode. Also loving caustic rain grenades.

Are you playing a cracked copy or legit? I picked up a purple upgrade kit for the Siren but me & my mates are soldiers/hunters so its useless for us. Sells for 4,000 at the vending machines.

Played this for about 4 hours co-op last night with my brother, Actually a fucking mean game, little hard on the split screen. Love the atmosphere and landscape and the range of weapons is insane. graphics are so nice as well. Keen as to give it another long blast later on.

Berserker and Siren are doing it for me. Especially love the Phoenix ability, setting dudes on fire when I get a kill rules. Berserker's rocket abilities are super useful for burstfire launchers, mean damage.
Got some epic loot now, only level 30 and every single weapon I have (including SMGs, pistols and combat rifles) does over 100 damage.
MEAN.
