In the mean time, hex'ed level editor FTW!

Not feeling any interest in this. Take away the lighthearted western theme and you take away a big chunk of what appeals to me about Borderlands.

I agree with this sentiment.

now I'll still be getting the xpac, but only because I want to for my character. he needs new places to shoot up, a raise on his levelcap, and shiny new loot. otherwise, I'm not all that thrilled about the choice of style.
it also seems like a weird progression. we were just in a Tatooine-like (see: Star Wars) desert-world with backwater hicks and Mad Max gangs running amok. now there's an island full of zombies? seems like somebody just wanted to hop on the bandwagon before its wheels fell off since they have another popular CO-OP game on their hands.

Coming soon for PC.... Gad damn. I hope they figure out how to distribute this for the PC people...

Anyways, we got the editor now :D Hopefully the problems with it can be fixed/worked around.

I love borderlands, but can't quite get enthused about this dlc. I've watched the videos or whatever, but it still just seems like random filler, even if the environments look as different as they do.
