OMFG YEAH!!!!

Scuttlebut is that Borderlands 2 will be announced shortly, according to Eurogamer.

If anyone out there hasn't played Borderlands yet, you need to rethink your life and go get it now. It's on a short list as one of my favorite games of all time.

OH LORD! (to quote a great piece of related music)

Ditto Reoh. Borderlands is right there at the top of my favourite shooters ever. I was amazed to talk to a couple of people that DIDN'T like it recently!!

What was wrong with them; Some sort of brain damage I presume, perhaps they were dropped on their head as a baby... a lot?

Well of course Zero Punctuation ripped it a new one, but that's what he always does. Amazes me that people beg him to review a game and then act surprised when he makes fun of it.

WAIT WHAT!?!!
fo real?

as much as i do love borderlands 1, there are some serious things i hate about it, which stem from the fact that it was a console port.

Actually when it was still in its infancy of version 1, someone made a third party program that enabled you to edit the cfg with a nice interface in almost every aspect, motion blur, fov changes, ducking, zooming toggle, etc.
I managed to make the game amazing with it. Then they patched the game and it wrote over the .cfg and stopped the program from working, and since the author abandoned the project i was forever saddened.

Awesome, it's been rumored for a while now.
I'm certainly looking forward to a BL2

...it has however been stated in the past that Borderlands 2 is a no-brainer

But yeah, Borderlands is really exciting. Everyone here loves the franchise, and it seems like the public is really coming back with praise and love. So yeah, if everything makes sense, Borderlands 2 seems like a no-brainer to me.

Actually Hell Scream you do make a good point in that the console port UI was utterly attrocious for a PC title. But the game was great enough I'd forgotten that annoyance.

i have to say Reoh, i too have overcome my hatred for them, i even feel the niggling urge to play it now (i think its a "Loot" fetish). i just wish i could have a good game online with people with a nice low latency, or a good o'l fashion LAN so i can punch the guy that takes the purples

Interesting news.

I have always wanted to play borderlands but never bothered with it as it seemed like a multiplayer game not single player.

Hopefully i will get a chance to play this one though.
