hey guys, I bought a 4-pack from Steam, so if anyone is interested, I will sell one copy of the game for $45 instead of the original $69 (the four pack costs $180). If interested, just send me a pm.

i've never played or seen anyone play Borderlands before and have a few questions.

Will it be like L4D? Better to game with 3 other mates, and when they are unavailable, you just auto connect with 4 other players via internet? Or can you play solo? I wish it was alot more independent, but you could then create parties, that would have been epic!

Borderlands, like more Diablo-style games, is better played with friends. It's always great to show off/share loot with your friends, and the characters have some great synergy when played as a team. Tanky Gunzerker, as a stealth Zer0 flanks from behind or snipes for example.

This game is so much better then the first one. I love the strides Gearbox made with everything.

Played for a few hours tonight... Even more fun than the first :D

Playing as Zer0 with my friend playing Axton and just scraped the surface of their skills (only level 8 so far), but so far they are both looking like great characters. Badass skills are a welcome addition. Looking forward to lots more playing tomorrow!

Loved the first game, love this even more. Unlocked it via VPN at 5am and played for about 5 hours. Lots of little improvements over the first game really improve the experience

Just picked up my PS3 version during my bank run.... Now waiting for lunch hour... after lunch hour, going to just be counting the hours down til closing time. Game looks so awesome. Gearbox is going to become one of the best gaming companies in a little while. They seem to be on track with what gamers really want.

I'm really looking forward to getting some time to play this game. My brother and I played the first one to death back in the day. Unfortunately, I won't get much time to play this week. (Anniversary on Thursday, and friend's wedding on Friday) I'm totally jealous of those of you who are playing already.

How is Zer0? He's the one I'm going to play with first, but some of his talents were kind of ambiguous. (Like Counter Strike and Killing blow). They could be really, really awesome...or really, really terrible depending on the thresholds used (which aren't mentioned). How is he playing early game so far?

Love the dialogue so far. Laughed out loud about 10 times, and only about 10 minutes into the game.

Best one so far is, " I bought a pony made out of diamonds, because I'm rich like that. Was trying to think of a name for him that reminded me of you... **** for brains just doesn't sound right." :p

For those in North America who plays Axton, what specific role does he play for the team? Support? All-around damage dealer? Tank?

For someone who hasn't played Borderlands, and is burnt out on FPS for the time being, would I dislike this game?

Only asking because a bud of mine is begging for me to pick it up, but I'm not sure I am ready for another FPS at this point. Are the RPG elements enough to make me forget about it? Just wondering.

Yeah hearing that made me a little mad I didn't go to the launch party to see them live.

Btw added you LOC as soonerfreak.

I think you'd like it. But, then again it IS an FPS game, with RPG elements. Slightly more RPG elements than say, Mass Effect etc. But it does have RPG elements none the less. Also, with the new Bad Ass system, you can tweak your guys pretty well now also. So maybe...slightly more RPG-ish? :p

Looks like I am going to have some time to check out the PC version tonight. Will see if anyone is on Steam when I do. I do need a little bit to play with graphics settings though, need to make sure it is running the best it can. I also never beat Borderlands 1, so I am a casual Borderlands player, so keep this in mind if we do play, I may not know exactly what I am doing. But I am decent at shooting stuff. :laugh:

I can't decide if I like Clap Trap or Handsome Jack more.
