“Borderlands Boasting” or “These Guys Talk a lot!”

To say that I am excited about Borderlands is sort of like saying “the Atlantic Ocean is a bit damp”.

Let’s check the game against my industry-standard checklist.

  • Post-apocalyptic-esque setting? Check!
  • Cell-shaded graphics? Check!
  • Dynamically spawned enemies? Check!
  • 87 bajillion guns? Check!
  • 4-player co-op? Check!
  • Asshole robots? Check!

What’s not to like?!

The editorial team over at Rock, Paper, Shotgun has been around since 1873. They have posted a lengthy and… conversational review. The 4,000+ word article covers the guys over at RPS discussing the pros and cons of the game and passing verdict on what they feel makes the game stand out. It’s an interesting read, albeit a bit long. But with the release still six days away, this is the only piece of additional information I can find on the game, and I gobbled it up faster than a Chinese whore turns a trick on Saint Patrick’s Day in Ireland.

Let’s give you a moment to digest that last sentence.

In summary, if Borderlands’ viral campaigning has had any effect on you, you will want to read the verdict. It’s a good way to pass the time as you wait for the RPG/FPS hybrid to ship.

Also, here is the trailer in HD. Enjoy!

    Kotaku said they liked the game, but that it got repetitive and boring if playing solo. Also, jogging through the desert is suppose to be a bitch too
