    People are going back to those areas because they are exploitable.

    I found 2 pearlescents just by farming Knoxx's armory by way of falling through the floor.

    Gearbox won't fix it because something about the 360's way of patching, can't quite remember. So yes thank the consoles for giving us unlimited nummies.

    Depends on how they implement it. I kinda doubt they'll put a crafting/smithing system in, but it'd be nice

    Eh, I don't see Craw as really exploitable unless you're referring to the one spot you can stand and Craw won't attack
    Armory tho, oh yea, easily exploitable

    wat


    It also looks like we're on Pandora again. With the news about Gearbox trademarking Borderworlds I was kinda hoping that the sequel would feature planets you could travel between. Then again, if that were the case it'd probably just be an ice world, lava world, and jungle world with Pandora filling the role of the desert world.

    Meh, another "singleplayer" game that will be mind-numbingly boring unless played online. I'll pass.

    (Yes, I did play Borderlands. Yes, it bored me to tears after a couple of hours.)

    That's because they made Borderlands with the EXPRESS INTENT of just focusing on online and co-op play. The game pretty much screamed at you to get at least one other person to play with.

    And as to the second Borderlands, I think Gamespot's article here would do this thread great justice.

    I really enjoyed Borderlands. I played maybe half to three quarters of the game with another person, though. Co-op is awesome. I really don't mind when games are geared towards it.

    At the rate Blizzard is going with Diablo, I wouldn't be surprised if this comes out first.

    So I just picked up the original, having ignored it for this long. Decent game, but hardly the game this thread makes it out to be.

    Like they say, if you play alone it's really boring. It is much less so in coop.
    However it is something that I hope is addressed in the second game.

    Either you aren't a fan of the genre or were expecting something different going in. How far have you played and are you doing it solo or with friends?

    Not really much of either. I'm heading into Janistown, so I have spent some time with it. I am playing it solo, and haven't had to much trouble getting thru it.

    However, I've had a couple of instances where I died only to find enemies respawned at the save point. In those instances you have to quit the game. Of course, quitting means starting the level over and respawning means $$ spent. You'd think they could have added an exception that the active spawn points gets a radius where enemies don't spawn, but whatever...

    I'm sure its intended to be a coop game, and I don't mind the extra difficulty. In fact I appreciate it because too many sp games last 2 weeks on their hardest difficulty. But cmon, spawn killing in a sp game?

    I played it solo for about two hours before I put it down. It simply isn't very good as a SP game. Coop, however, it is fucking awesome. It is really the only worthwhile way to play the game. Sure, that's kind of a flaw on Gearbox's part, but it is well worth it.

    I've barely done more than 10% of the game in co-op, the rest was all in SP mode for the main plot and the DLC's.

    The one time I did try and do full co-op was for my first play through of the Claptrap DLC and Haarg joined as a level 69 but me and the game were at level 35 or so. He pretty much did a speed run that kept him so far ahead of me and everyone else that he basically one-shotted and killed every boss before I could even get halfway there. I literally didn't see any of the mini-bosses because they were all dead before I could catch up and the final fight lasted about 20 seconds and that sort of soured any interest in future co-op sessions for me. So I've tended to stick with SP even in games that are geared towards co-op.

    Yeah I probably shouldn't let one thing stop me from doing co-op, but meh.
