Borderlands
« on: October 16, 2009, 12:13:27 AM »
Anyone else thinking of getting this one?  I cannot wait for it personally.  I love the cartoonish art direction and the fact that is a 4 player co-op, FPS/RPG orgy, I'm pretty sure I'm gonna love it.  And if I do, DLC has already been announced w/ zombies.  Hell F*** Yes!!!

2K Games today announced the first DLC package for Borderlands, Gearbox's open-world "role-playing shooter" due to hit the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on Tuesday. "The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned" is the DLC's title.

A 2K release describes the pack's story thusly:

Tasked with keeping the workers of Jakobs Cove alive, Dr. Ned (who is not related to Dr. Zed from Fyrestone) does his job a little too well, creating zombies and other abominations that now run rampant in this region. Players will have to work alongside Dr. Ned as they embark on a quest to cure the inhabitants of Jakobs Cove in this full-fledged expansion filled with new enemies, new quests and rare loot drops.

The same release said only that "The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned" is "planned for release later this year." Price will be $9.99 on PSN and for PC, 800 Microsoft points for the Xbox.

"The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned is in development at Gearbox Software and is the first in a series of downloadable expansions that will enhance the Borderlands mayhem in fun and exciting ways," says 2K.

There isnt much out there about this game but after talking to a co-worker that pre ordered it I am interested... From what he is telling me it seems like they took a lot of things from World of Warcrft to build the RPG and loot system aspects of the game and being a big fan of WoW I think I'll check it out. 

Do you know if there is a Multiplayer aspect of the game Aftr?

The developers are promoting it as "Fallout 3 with co-op and multiplayer".  To me, that's not really a good thing.  As a developer, you should always promote your ideas as unique and extraordinary.  Fallout 3 was a GOTY, but it was strictly a single player, which is why it got GOTY; it worked for that game.  If they are basing their premise on the multiplayer and co-op aspect, and hoping to ride FO3's coattails for everything else, then I'm not holding my breath.  I'm going to wait for reviews and to find out what people say first.  If this is indeed FO3 with a go-zillion guns and co-op, then I'm not impressed.  We'll see soon enough.

Hmmm this has tweaked my interest. 

If anyone has any playing experience on the game I would be interested in hearing about it.

It comes out this Tuesday, and personally I think that was the one thing that FO3 lacked.  You experienced everything on your own.  Story wise, all you had to do was say that it was the central character's story, but instead of being this loner, he had a best friend, or 3 best friends, and when he rebelled, they rebelled w/ him.  Roaming the scavenged land of FO3 w/ 3 of my buds, flanking Super Mutants, and kicking a**.  Hell yes, where do I sign up please.  It's not FO3 though.  It has a different art direction and it's own unique story.  But it is a FPS shooter w/ RPG elements and I would agree that it is more closely modeled to FO3 than say Mass Effect.  OXM just gave it an 8.5.  I'm sold.

At any time while playing Borderlands, a player can melee another player to issue a challenge. When the melee is returned, a player vs. player "duel" starts.[5] Players can also travel to "arenas" located at various locations in the game world. These arenas are specifically made for competitive play, where players can face off in both Free-For-All styled games or team-based games.[6]


Throw down the gauntlet b****es!!  First one is a trailer, and the 2nd shows some gameplay.

 :LMAO:  I feel the same way.  Looks like a good bit of us will pick this up so I will always be up for some co-op.  If you want to do it sp alone, I totally understand, but if not, I will be sending out messages to see if you are interested in co-op when I see you on.   :BNB:
