I was checking out this forum and didn't happen to notice any threads about Borderlands. so I thought I would post something on the up and coming Gearbox software game title.
In the distant future, several colonization ships head to Pandora, a planet on the edge of the galaxy. The colonists are drawn there in search of a better life as well as vast mineral resources said to be on the planet, free for anyone's taking, a futuristic gold rush. Some time after settling the colonists discover that there is little the planet offers, aside from some decrepit alien ruins. Those who have money leave, the remaining population devolves into chaos and lawlessness. Some of the settlers seek to get rich quick by discovering alien technology. Most others are just trying to survive. After seven earth years, the planet's slow orbit brings a transition from winter to spring, and many horrifying creatures emerge from hibernation.
A beacon of hope for the remaining colonists emerges in the form of a mysterious vault carved in the side of a mountain. This vault is said to contain stores of alien technology and secrets. The only problem is that the people who discovered the vault were completely wiped out by some sort of protective force. The only evidence of their discovery is a scattered radio transmission, proclaiming the vault's majesty, but not its location.
Looking forward to it. Hopefully it doesn't turn out shitty.
Well, I've only heard this in passing, but as you do have a forum dedicated to this game in your signature, could you please give us some more information? Maybe like some vids and images? Impressions?
Before that I believe, but I've been trying to keep an eye on it. It has promise and I hope they deliver on it.
I also hope they don't do a shitty port of the PC version like so many devs seem to do.

If anything they'll do a shitty port TO the PC since, the first gameplay interview i ever saw of the game, was them on a 360.
Devs need to develop for the PC, THEN do a shitty port to the consoles.

Does it HAVE to be shitty? Since shooters on consoles are barely any worse then them on PC...
There has been a recent trend (GTA IV, Saints Row 2, etc...) where the devs focus on the consoles only and when they do get around to the PC version it's a giant piece of shit. Dev's don't seem to care about the PC anymore and that pisses me off.
Back in the day they actually cared about their PC versions. Hell, most of them started out on the PC.
