    I was debating getting this on pc or ps3, but I think I made up my mind to get the pc version. They are having some of the devs at the gamespot a few miles from the house, at 9 tonight. I think I am going to check that out.

    Thanks Drac, that's the review that convinced me to pre-purchase Borderlands on Steam.

    That's a shame, not a fan of gamespy. Other than that the only issues seem to be the menus being a hassle due to them being designed for the console versions, endgame gets repetitive as enemy and chest placement is always the same, and lack of enemy variety for most of the game, though those last 2 won't be much of a problem once the DLC hits.

    Ultimately, all the reviews read along the lines of "Play with friends, have a blast" which is all I need :D

    Just got back from the gametop and chatting with some of the devs (the few that you could peel away from playing the game while potential customers waited) and they said that they feel the pc version is the best. It isn't a straight port. They also said they tweeked the menus for pcs.


    Game looks and feels good. All they had was consoles so I expect the pc version to be better with the ole mouse and keyboard. I can't wait for it to drop for the pc.


    It looked best on the 42 inch (size?) tvs that they had set up with the xbox. PS3 version didn't look as good, but they only had that on those tiny monitors they have on top the cosole pedastals at gamestop.

    Lucky sod! :p

    Yeah, I saw a short video interview with Randy Pitchford where he made it clear the best Borderlands experience would be had on a high-end PC.

    It's great to see that there are still companies out there willing to give a little back to the PC user :D

    I like the sound of this bit:

    Is this how publishers now "spin" the whole "you can't publish a bad review before release" directive.

    I found an irresistible reason to get Borderlands in another review:
    The RPS Verdict: Borderlands | Rock, Paper, Shotgun
    How awesome is that :bigthumbsup:
    My co-op partners will finally appreciate all that effort put into topping the friendly fire table in Left4Dead. ;)

    I'd be more concerned that you're always thinking about Ned...
