    Exactly what it says on the tin. :) 

    In anticipation of the long-awaited release of "Borderlands" on October 20, 2009, I'll be posting pictures (and eventually wallpapers) and videos in this thread. If you'd like to contribute to the hype by posting (links to) screenshots and other material or just ask questions or spread rumors, this is the place to do it.

    Be sure to check this exact post every now and again up until and including the release date for freebies and neat stuff. :)

    I have nothing interesting to say, but I sure as hell can't wait for this game. Next 30 days is great for video games.

    Good call. This game is so much more fun with two or more people blasting away at stuff, especially since there are instances in the game where enemies will sneak, gang up, and respawn to insane degrees.

    I can't confirm or deny much more in that direction until release day. But I'm willing to answer any general burning questions anyone might have about it, though.

    Interesting looking game, my friend has been harping about this for a while now. But with U2, Brutal Legend and Demon Souls all coming out, I have no money or time for a FPS RPG.

    yeah......yeah.....

    I didn't know this was coming in OCT too. Seriously, Uncharted, Ratchet, Brutal, and now this... oh and I wanted to give ODST a shot too... Seriously, do they realize that some of us want EVERYTHING :D  ?

    The only one I'm saving on is Brutal because Gamestop has a Trade in two PS3/360 games and get it for 20 bucks. But ODST and This game aren't on my list for the year, so getting them will be tricky. I should have thought to add them to the list earlier this year. Curse me and not having the eye or Sauron.

    LIST:

    Uncharted
    Ratchet
    Brutal
    Dragon Age

    anything outside of that has to be worked for, and with saving for a wedding taking priority, that work borders on slave labor.... then again......

    edit: I thank the heavens that Lost Planet 2 isn't coming this year. I thank them hard.

    Started adding wallpapers, which I will continue to do up until release day. Expect some nice splash screens on October 20th featuring most major characters and adversaries from the game.

    A friend of mine is really pumped for this, and he's been telling me all sorts of stuff about it. I'm thinking of starting as Mordecai, because his main thing is revolvers and he supposedly has a falcon that you can make attack things. I wonder if I can make the falcon bring back a vole...

    Also, any game with the Achievement "Master Exploder" is cool in my book.

    Yeah, Mordecai's basic action skill employs a bird of prey known as a Bloodwing. The basic attack has it going after one target. However, after you get to Level 5, you begin accumulating one action skill point per level, which you can then begin allocating to various additional action skills that will customize Bloodwing's attacks, i.e. increasing the maximum number of targets it attacks, converting the attack damage dealt on enemies into an equivalent amount of restored health for your character, doing elemental damage (electrical, corrosive, fire, or explosive) to enemies, etc.

    The same points can also be allocated to various attributes that affect your weapon handling skills (increase damage, accuracy, firing rate, or ammunition, inflict elemental damage by firing shock, acid, corrosive, or incendiary bullets, etc.). A list of the available action skills can be found here:
