Default Over 500,000 Guns?!

I must admit, Borderlands looks great so far. They have software that makes guns for them, so they have over half a million guns. Epic win? Or epic confusion? Good luck finding your favorite gun.

Looks rather impressive. I am little conserned about how one can play solo games to level up, and then go into an online mode later on. i do feel that this might be exploited.

That guy is so psyched about it. It does look like a fun game though, different, and I like the idea of fps with leveling up. Endless guns...I wonder why.

You bring up a very good point...

I like the art style. I like the genre tweak they are putting on this.

This could be good. I'd like to beta test it.

It is coming out on the 30th, so you don't really have much to wait.

I think it looks pretty cool. That's great how they had some AI "manufacture" all the weapons. They're gonna have to really tightly regulate the offline leveling and bringing it online somehow though.

It's cell shaded, which is nice. But i think the weapons are excessive, as previously mentioned - you'll get many of the same gun, just minutely different. 500K Weapons isjust massively excessive, imagine how buggy some of them will be ? Noone could ever test 500,000 weapons.
