Did you finish off New Vegas already?

Anyways when I do finish off New Vegas myself, I might give this game another try.

Though I have the boxed version of STALKER, don't have the other ones, I might give them a look on steam and get them, if the price is right. I still don't trust STALKER as I still say it's one the buggiest games I've ever played.

The buggiest was Cryostasis, and that went in the garbage

Not yet.

But I will be picking up a couple new games this weekend and Im quite certain thats going to be one of them.


I noticed on STEAM the game is only $20.
But theres a GOTY edition thats $50, which seems as it just includes all the DLC.

Is all the extra DLC worth the extra $30 though?

Speaking of Borderlands.... a new patch is out

Maybe, but the two really good DLC's are General Knoxx and Zombie Island of Dr. Ned, absolutely beautiful graphic in that one.

The new DLC is Clap Trap's Robot Revolution, but I got bored and never finished it. Not saying it's bad, I'm just borderland out.

At 10 bucks a piece, you'll probably get two, so....

And be aware that this game was really designed to be played with others, so the single play can become easy after leveling up. That's another reason I got bored after awhile, too easy in single player mode.

I do appreciate all the input on Borderlands.

With all the info Ive learned about it, I think I'll probably just get the basic game with no DLC. Not quite decided yet.


Heres my thing.
Since Im more of a RPG gamer, I tend to get bored of games like this quite quickly.
I mean I like FPS, but can only play them for a short time before moving to something else.

take Left For Dead series for example. Good game, and I do like it.
But, I can start a game of it, even online and play for 2-3 hrs or so and enjoy it. But then Im extremely bored of it and move to another game.

I will come back to it a few days later and play another couple hours.

Good games, but for me I can only play a limited time before becoming bored of them.


Im thinking Borderlands may fall into this category for me, then again you never know.

So it might not be worth all the extra DLC, at least for me.

Borderlands single play mode....

Only played in single mode play.

I loved borderlands to a certain point. But again, in single player mode, the higher you level up, the easier the game becomes. Unfortunately at some point your skill lever becomes greater than even bosses.

I've killed major bosses with low level weapons without so much as losing a quarter of my shields, let alone health. At that point the game becomes boring since itís not challenging anymore.

With that said, it is a fun game, I personally loved the look and graphics, the opening and closing soundtracks are outstanding, and itís an open world with plenty of side missions.

There are currently 4 DLCís released, but the two I really enjoyed are The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned, and The Secret Armory of General Knoxx. The other DLC that I have but havenít finished is Claptrapís New Robot Revolution.

All in all the game is fun, but after a while it starts to get boring since youíre basically doing to same thing, mainly long range fetch and get, or assassinations.

Hereís some links on the game -
- Borderlands Wiki - Walkthroughs, Weapons, Classes, Character builds, Enemies, DLC and more!
- Borderlands Review: Guns! Guns! Guns!

Is it worth 50 bucks with all the DLC included.... Single player mode... maybe, multiplayer mode, yeah. And this new patch may spruce things up.... Borderlands v1.41 Patch (Worldwide Retail)

Just picked up Borderlands.
Interesting game TBH, so far I am really enjoying it.


Im only Lvl 11 atm, and seems it starting to get a bit more fun now, now that its starting to open up and I have the training out of the way.
I might have to get some of the DLC afterall


Just curious, how big is this game?
Still in the first area, but from looking at the map it looks like its going to be quite large.
