I almost got into corrosive and shock weapons, then I got the the intrude skill maxed on my hunter and said, "shields?  What shields?"

Being able to take out Guardians with my shotgun is amazingly pleasing. :>

Nice.  I presume you have the full bonus to elemental damage (diva?), bonus to fire damage (spark?), and the class mod that stacks on both of those skills?

Combustion Hellfire and Double Anarchy SMG's dominate.

Yup. After I kill someone that gun has something like 12x fire damage. It might burn a lot of people forever.

That's the same line/skillset my Roommate's been using lately.  I also gave him a "Hard Volcano" line sniper that I found which deals around 5000 on a crit at level 44 (vs same level) between all of our bonuses.  If I recall correctly he also has a rocket launcher and a shotgun, but rarely has any reason to use them.

I don't believe you do... You're a "OMG MODERN WARFARE TWO IS THE BEST GAME THAT HAS EVER BEEN MADE! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA" kind of gamer. I believe that the hight of game design was Super Mario Bros 3, and I'm sure that many people would agree with me on that.

This is off-topic.

But seriously, games don't make a gamer hardcore.  The gamer makes the gamer hardcore.  A real hardcore gamer can take any game seriously.  Ever played peggle?  As a hardcore TBS player, I can take that game seriously (yes, even peggle) as an abstract strategy game.  A hardcore gamer breaks every rule, pushes every boundary, and learns every minute detail of a game to make it bend to his will.

That said, playing Borderlands does not automatically classify you into an particular subclassification of gamers.  It doesn't even make you a gamer.  Popping off 10 headshots with a revolver in five seconds no-scope makes you a gamer.

If you want to talk about this further (which I don't advise, because if ha~ma sees a conversation like this, he's gonna trump everyone here), make a new topic for it.  Otherwise, I start deleting posts to get this thread back on topic.

Siren can actually stack the crap out of shield to become almost indestructible.  My roommate has 1750 shield and 900 health with Siren and it isn't even a very good shield.  The hunter is really the only class that's particularly vulnerable.

Although you would only have 4 classes that both male and female characters could have, (Male siren, female soldier etc.) there's also the upgrade packs that give you class archetypes.

I haven't played Borderlands in so long at my friend's house. I consider it the adventure version of call of duty. It uses roughly the same controls, but gives you space to go ANYwhere and shoot ANYthing with ANY weapon.

How would loot be determined, though?  Just a dice roll for each element?  That would be a lot...

In the do-it-yourself dungeon in the D&D 3rd ed player's handbook, you determine what level of treasure is being guarded and how many monsters are guarding it. Then you roll three times, to determine if the treasure's are coins, works of art or gems, masterwork or magical items arms or armor.

In the case of Borderlands, most loot will be in the form of guns, shields, health kits, cash, ammo, grenades, grenade mods, and class mods. Red chests and silver chests contain guns and mods along with 4 ammo clips for the guns, and maybe 4 grenades, black chests just contain piles of ammo. Most guns and mods have a minimum level required to use them, and with higher level weapons comes higher accuracy, damage and fire rate.

Determining a gun's maker can also tell what qualities it has. One company only makes elemental weapons.

FPS is pretty legit on 360.  But I would agree that the most correct way to play an FPS would be a mouse/joystick/keyboard combo on a PC.  Not really an option for folks like me though.

But can you calibrate them to work properly with most games? :O

My general understanding of the 360 is that Microsoft designed it specifically so it wouldn't be compatible with 3rd party controllers, so I assumed that mice and keyboards would be included.

People have tried:

http://www.maxconsole.net/?mode=news&newsid=13000

But they aren't very good at all on Xbox games. Xbox games are designed to have a continuous acceleration controller (like an Xbox controller joystick) not instantaneous acceleration (like from a PC gaming mouse).

I have been eyeballing this game since release...just hate forking over $60 for games & then forking over another $30+ in downloadable content (hello $130 for Fallout 3 that was released later as Game of the Year edition >:( ). Waiting to use my edge card on a used copy that is $50 or less.

That's how I generally am too.  Which is why I was really happy when MHFU was only $30 retail.  $30 for 400+ hours of gameplay?  YES PLEASE.

Granted, I've actually only put about 60 hours into it since I bought it in July (my hunting partner, ha~ma, got burnt out from MHF2 and MHP2G after about 700 hours and 4 different characters), but that's still a better hourly rate than I get out of most games.

Anyway, I don't really agree with the price of games these days, especially when the market is so oversaturated and considering that we're in a recession.  I personally can't afford to play most of the games I ought to without pirating them or borrowing them, and I really dislike pirating well-made games because, again, the market is oversaturated with BAD games.

So sad but true DancingTofu...I always buy my games & movies used these days & wait until the price is a lot lower as well. There are tons of games out right now that I would like to buy but everytime I think I made up my mind to spend the money, I don't. I stand in the store looking at them in my hand for a while...then 99 times out of 100 I end up putting them down & leaving empty handed because I can't allow myself to spend that kind of money.

If anyone is still playing Borderlands when I finally pick up a copy, I would like to play some co-op!

I see your point, but let me tell you something.

This is the first FPS I've played the crap out of since the original Perfect Dark. I logged well over 150 hours on that game.

I've only one of the DLC packs, beat the game as the soldier, hit 50. Good times.

Then I started a new game as a Siren. I'm still loving this game. I've logged over 72 hours on this gam as of today. Most I've logged on a 360 game (including Fallout 3, Forza 2, and friggin Rock Band.)

Buy the damned game already.

$60 is still $60 lol...I will be waiting for a better price no matter how awsome it is. Very few PS3 games have I paid full price for...when you can get it used cheaper from GameStop, no point in full price anymore. Especially when you consider the fact that BlueRay discs are VERY hard to scratch & they won't take trade-ins that are. Plus, when you own your own home among other expenses...burning $60 in winter when hours are slow isn't a good idea lol.

I've gotten 72+ (3 days) worth of playtime out of the game. I assume you'll get about 30. I think $2/hr for a game is rather reasonable, and if you play it longer, like I have, It'll get you more mileage.

Paid DLC is the only reason games like Rock Band and Guitar Hero didn't completely fall flat.  That's like saying that expansions or limited edition material should be free.  The video game industry is priced by demand because the supply curve is elastic.

Yet they are still guilty of over-inflating costs...you can't tell me with all honesty that they aren't making insane amounts of money. Most of those people drive half-million dollar cars just for commute to work. Fine, charge for DLC, but charge $5 instead of $10 & don't sell the original for $60 or more...try $40 & see how many more people buy new games.

Um... There's  a reason that these games cost $60 for XBox and $50 for PC. I don't know if you ever watched the credits for something like Borderland or Mass Effect, but it lists well over 400 people that worked on the game.

So lets take 400 people, 2 years, paying them $65,000 (which is low BTW) and you get $58,000,000. So yeah, games cost just a little to make.

Hey so not to ask the same question twice but does anyone know if the weapon proficiency has a level cap? i assume its 100 or some unattainable number that your never actually supposed to reach. Has anyone reached it?
