Borderlands!

borderlands_box_full.jpg

It’s a Diablo-esque game where you shoot dudes, level up, get tons of guns, and repeat! It’s pretty damned good. Despite this description.

So what’s it about? Well, you’re silly if you play Borderlands for the thin story it has, but basically you play one of four mercenaries hunting for the vault on the backwater planet of Pandora. What’s in the vault is unknown, but it’s rumored to be amazing!

And these vault hunters?

Roland_borderlands.jpg

Roland is probably the most ‘shootery’ of the hunters. A former Crimson Lance mercenary, his special ability is to throw out a gun turret. Said turret can be altered to do things like heal yourself and nearby allies, regenerate ammo for everyone in its area of effect, or just shoot guys harder and faster. Roland’s probably the dude to play through the game singleplayer because of this, and additionally because some of his skills give him passive ammo regeneration and insane clip size increases.

Mordecai_the_Hunter.jpg

Mordecai is the sniper of the foursome. His special ability is his pet Rakk, Bloodwing, which he can periodically throw out to assault enemies. Bloodwing can also do things like heal damage to you with damage it deals, cause enemies to drop more items upon death, and attack more often. I play Mordecai on the 360, he’s really a lot of fun, though kind of tough to solo with sometimes.

borderlands-lilith.jpg

Lilith! I have never played as Lilith so I don’t know much about her, but apparently people say she’s the best character or something. Her ability is phasewalking, where she turns invisible and runs really fast, and when she turns visible again she explodes in a burst of elemental energy. Said energy can be changed/enhanced through skill points, I guess.

And then there’s Brick. Who’s a big lumbering guy who can go berserk and punch a bunch of dudes. I think he’s widely agreed upon to be the least effective character, but I don’t know. He seems like he’d be interesting to play once you get him up in level, at least.

So I’ve finished this game and I want more, is there?

But of course! Since Borderlands came out nearly two years ago, Gearbox was kind enough to bless us with four (mostly) good DLC packs!

Zombie_Island_of_Dr._Ned_logo.png

The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned takes place in Jakobs’ Cove, a mysterious little island on Pandora. Something has gone wrong, wrong enough to infect the entire population with a zombie virus. Also, there’s wereskags. Wereskags, people.

Mad_Moxxi%27s_Underdome_Riot_logo.png

Mad Moxxi’s Underground Riot is basically Gearbox’s version of Horde mode from Gears of War, Firefight from Halo, and so on. Only it’s not really that fun to play, since the competitions take way too long and you get no experience or anything from the fights. This also added item banks, which is really the main reason to get the DLC (though still not at full price). Still, I want to finish this on the 360 sometime so I can get the achievements.

The_Secret_Armory_of_General_Knoxx_logo.png

This is possibly the best DLC in my opinion. Continuing the ‘story’ after the main game (though this contains roughly ten times the amount of story that was in the main game), you have to defeat the Crimson Lance once and for all, and fight General Knoxx! Only thing annoying about this DLC is the amount of driving you have to do, since driving in Borderlands is pretty boring and awkward.

CNRR_Logo.png

Claptrap’s gone nuts and has turned all the other Claptraps against humanity! You have to stop him! That's about all I can say without spoiling anything about the end of Borderlands! But it's a decent DLC!

Anyway, the reason I made this thread is because I want to play it with people, and hopefully people aren’t utterly sick of playing this game and would like to play it as well. I’ll be keeping a list of who has the game and for what system, so if you folks would be kind enough to list your system and gamertag/username/whatever, I’ll add it to the list. Also, if you can, list what characters you’re playing and their levels, so we can more easily find people of comparable level to us.

    I just picked up all the DLC for 75% off during the Steam sale, but it turns out that after bringing my hard drive back from Japan and setting up a new desktop last month, all my saves are gone

    Sooo I've been playing through all over again, currently rocking an 18 Lilith. Also can't wait for Borderlands 2!

    Hit me up on PC (Houk) if you got nothing better to do

    Also claptrap is not nearly as hilarious and fun as the people who made borderlands seem to think he is

    Thing about Brick, is if you get Blood Sport maxed out, he just rarely dies.

    Personally though, Lilith has been a lot of fun to play as and is my go-to character.

    360: ModelZ - Siren
    PC: NotDrWily - Siren

    Although due to some hardware issues, my PC game is stuck at level 1.

    I've got a bunch of characters

    Been getting the itch to start another one yet again, Mordecai this time. Only revolvers, gunslinger class mod.

    Because I always start over with a new character, I still haven't beat this.

    I got this on PC during a Steam sale and would love to play with you guys rather than random level 60 people who show up, wipe out the boss I've been working on while I respawn, grab all the loot and then throw it on the ground at my feet

    it's not as bad as a cat bringing you a dead bird with a "look what I got you!" look

    anyway I think my character is level 21ish and a soldier

    would like to try some of the other classes, though. Who wants to start a level one game?

    edit:

    find me this way

    I just picked up the GOTY recently. I've got a 20-something character from when I owned the game before but I haven't played in ages. I'd be willing to get some action in at oem time.

    @Moriveth

    There's a few cover spots you can duck behind and get the timing down for the vehicle during that arena quest. I'd watch the radar, pop up, fire a rocket, duck back down and wait until it came back around. It would blow up a nice distance away and the cover would block any debris.

    I really hope the sequel drops Gamespy.

    Every time I play about 15 minutes in the connection drops and I have to sit still for a few seconds reconnecting as some badass fireskag mauls me and then when I get back in the voice chat is bugged.

    In fact, re-do the voice chat too. Push to talk will always be better than having an always on mic.

    I had this on 360 but I don't have X-box live, so I picked the GOTY edition up on Steam and am playing through it again.

    Level 30(ish) Hunter, just beat Krom.

    I've only ever played solo. Beat it twice on PS3 when I borrowed my bro's copy, once with Mordecai and once with Lilith.

    Mordecai was infinitely more fun for me.

    Some lovely person gifted me GOTY edition on Steam so I'd love to try out the multi on a fresh game with a new Mordecai?

    When asked this question at PAX, the person apparently said "What's Gamespy?" and it is Steamworks, so I assume they are doing something else.
