^^ this. how can one not like borderlands. i think he just approached the game wrong. the first time i played it, i was expecting a deep storyline etc, and hated it. then i tried it again, and approached it for what it is..a mindless shooter where you try to loot the biggest most badass gun and fight ridiculously powerful enemies and do offbeat quests.

its a good game.

Hahaha, High Five for the reference to that dudes Minecraft server.

Borderlands just fell flat, it promised so much and didn't deliver.

Visually the game was stunning, I absolutely loved the presentation, and miss it for that. My complaints lie in the fact that the number of items were not nearly as vast as they said they would be, I spent a few hundred hours with the game and found the same things over and over. Multiplayer was just a joke on every level, hacking was just rampant as all hell, and even in single player the character classes had absolutely no balance. Every one of them had a combination of abilities that just broke them and allowed you to stroll through the game without any worry of death.

The single most prominent, and good, memory I have of the game was a rocket launching shotgun I found that had like 1% accuracy. I pulled it out and shot at a guy 2 feet in front of me and the rockets just went flying all over the place. I hit every damn thing on that map and blew it to hell but the one guy in front of me. It was a bit silly. But little moments like this weren't enough to save the game as a whole, which is odd to say considering how many hours I put into the game. I guess all those hours were just trying to find something that could save the game.

It is because of this that I have no hopes for Borderlands 2, none at all. I am going to buy it I am sure, and I am going to play the hell out of it. But if I go into without hope then I can't be disappointed, it is only up from there.

EDIT: If they could fix Multiplayer, and make the game a little harder, and actually fix the loot system to where it would drop the items they claimed it could drop, it would be much better. Oh, and longer, a much longer game.

I have every DLC and played through the game so many times, I literally had over 200 hours into the game.

Borderlands delivered EVERYTHING they promised...I was involved in the Beta and every single thing THEY promised, actually happened.

Did it live up to the HYPE that the COMMUNITY drove? No...because it was so hyped it was ridiculous so, of course they didn't...No game could have but, they definitely delivered everything they promised.

Now, for IG and Bioshock, I'm very glad they did delay the game because it gives them time to perfect certain issues that the beta testers had...That's not entirely a bad thing.

Completely unconstructive post but that will be my birthday, yay!

Meh I'll live. Not shocked by it, but as long as they do it right a delay won't kill anyone.

With all the crazy stuff coming out this year, I believe it would have gotten lost in the thick of things and not have had as much recognition as it deserves. A pushed back release date can only bring better things for this game thumb.gif

Well, let me prove your statement wrong....

According to GearBox President and CEO Randy Pitchford there are "Over 17 million weapons".
http://content.usatoday.com/communities/gamehunters/post/2009/10/gearbox-on-how-many-weapons-reside-in-borderlands/1#.T6rPYetv_0c

In my 200+ hours spent with the game I would say I found about, and being very generous here, 300 to 500 different weapons. Hell, even if I had found 1% that would have been 170,000, which wasn't even close to the number of combinations I found. The item combinations were not hyped by the players, but by GearBox, it was their major selling point! During one press conference they went as far as to say that you, outside of the preset uniques, might not find the same item twice. Yea, right! I had piles of certain "random" items.
