    This one is for X since he inadvertently talked me into buying the first Borderlands when there was thread for it.

    I'll definitely be getting it. I had a blast playing Borderlands with my friends.

    The game was so good as it was, but there really is a hell of a lot more they could do. As far as open world games go, the ability to interact with NPCs was downright crude.

    Here is a link to a teaser trailer on gameinformer (sorry for the link to the reddit threads but I am firewalled from gameinformer and most other gaming sites while at work)

    http://www.reddit.com/r/Borderlands/comments/jlu5e/meet_the_gunzerker/

    Here are some screen shots/concept art

    http://www.reddit.com/r/Borderlands...orderlands_2_screenshots_released_xpost_from/

    here are two of the images from the above link

    Wait, so it's going to be even more BLs goodiness with great graphics, and I'm assuming over the top humor. Plus we get cloud saving? Fuck yes.

    If Mass Effect wasn't so god damn amazing with it's storytelling, Borderlands would easily be my favorite RPG for the 360.

    Did you watch the teaser of the "Gunzerker" class? That will be fun, being able to double fist any weapon type :D

    Everything that has come out in the week since they let the cat out of the box (alive) has me waiting for B2 almost as much as I am waiting for Mass Effect 3

    Speaking of RPG's I just picked up Alpha Protocol (new for 20$ at gamestop, made by Obsidian) and was surprised by how good it is, they have an interesting take on the Mass Effect style dialogue wheel (timed convo choices) which is where I think the idea for the interrupts in ME2 came from after playing through Alpha.

    Alpha Protocol wasn't bad at all. I spent $60 on it new, wasn't impressed at that price. But at $20, I'd be willing to pick it up and go through it again.

    This game is looking better and better! Me and a couple of other friends started a new playthrough of Borderlands a couple of weeks ago!

    I would agree 60$ would be a little steep for it as it is a tad to linear for a RPG in some gameplay aspects. Story isn't bad though even on the 2nd playthrough and I would say playing as a recruit is a challange becasue you don't get any starting AP to dish out into skills

    And more leaked footage, it appears it's a dev conference for writers, 14 minutes long with a look at the new weapons, the new skill tree set up, and new enemy ai

    This is kinda crazy because the controls would be hard to use I think but cool at the same time
