    Recommend to any FPS or RPG fan
    even as i'm looming close to the finish with the Siren there's still LOADS to do and upgrades to get and definitely worth a few play through!
    a few MINOR fixes to come but a nice breath of fresh air in comparison to Flashpoint issues!

    Apparently co-op gets better drops BUT the enemies are harder, makes people work as a team which is great

    i did the 1st 20 lvls on co-op and the change is quite substantial, granted we only moved up to 2 player but you get a message at the top of the screen like (for example as it shows)

    'Mikepreach has joined your game'
    'The creatures of Pandora become STRONGER!'

    which i think is a nice touch
    just started to find Legendary weapons and mods now - i think im going to find the vault soon - but last night as i was checking my weapon proficiencies i noticed there is a weapon type with a weird name which suggests the game doesn't stop at the vault . . . .oooooooh!

    Re: Reviews - Borderlands - PC, Xbox 360, PS3

    Forgot to say, big Kudos to HEXUS for actually reviewing the PS3 version of the game. Most other places are doing the 360 version.

    You see so many sites doing comparisons between 360 and PS3 on games and sometimes it can overshadow a review. In a lot of cases also they take games that are technically superior on the 360 and use it to show flaws in the PS3.

    I'm really happy with the fact that HEXUS has taken the PS3 version and not bothered with any comparisons and gone on gameplay and the game itself. Makes it a more compelling read

    Re: Reviews - Borderlands - PC, Xbox 360, PS3

    I really want this game but there is just to much coming out at the moment. I'm addicted to Forza 3 and MW2 is just around the corner, I don't see me getting much time to play it.

    I might pick it up in the new year when there is less about, but then there's still ME2 and Dragons Age.

    Why do they have to release all the good games at the same time

    Once you have seen it you will never be the same
    Life in the fast lane is just how it seems
    Hard and it is heavy dirty and mean

    Re: Reviews - Borderlands - PC, Xbox 360, PS3

    Its so annoying when everything comes out at once. When I picked up Borderlands it was a three way choice. Borderlands, Brutal Legend or Unchartered 2.

    Then over the next few weeks you are looking at Dragon Age Origins, MW2, Assasins Creed 2, Left4Dead 2, Tekken 6 and SAW just to name a few.

    However, I made my choice and I am so pleased I picked up Borderlands

    Re: Reviews - Borderlands - PC, Xbox 360, PS3

    A moment ago we were all complaining at the number of titles pushed back to next year.. now we're wishing more were?

    Imagine what it'd be like if ME2, Starcraft2, Assassins Creed2 etc. etc. were all coming out now as well

    I mainly use consoles for gaming now and Assasins Creed 2 lands on 360 & PS3 this month have a feeling I will get that one for Christmas.

    This happens every year though, launch stuff in time for Christmas to maximise sales

    Dragon Age is the next one I'm getting. I still need to finish Arkham Asylum also!

    Yeah, getting out of Crocs Lair is pretty challenging. Havn't played it for a few weeks, really need to crack on with it.

    Re: Reviews - Borderlands - PC, Xbox 360, PS3

    Anyone else playing PS3 version and getting glitches when you open the map? Kinda flashes when looking at it, similar to what happens on PC graphics cards when theres things wrong with the ram. It only happens when the map is open, not whilst playing, running around killing things, literally just when you hit select for the map.
