Downtime: Borderlands

Gaming is my second favorite thing to do with a computer. It’s surprising then that I spend very little time writing about it.

That ends here. Line.

Borderlands has been out for a while now, but I’m just now getting into the meat and potatoes of the game.  Last night a friend and I reached the New Haven Portion of the game — approximately 2/3rds of the way through the game.  At this point I’m confident that I can make a ‘buy’ recommendation for the game. It has Diablo-inspired loot mechanisms, and it provides an avenue for PC players to play cooperatively online, both ‘musts’ in my book.  If you do buy it, do yourself a favor and do all of the side-quests.  Too many times people buy a 40-hour game and finish it in 3 hours.

As they say: Getting there is half the fun.
