Try switching weapons. Tell me that stupid method for switching weapons was made for PC. PC = Drag and drop. Not click to highlight, then click another area to highlight. Definitely made for a standard controller to do.


How about ALL of the toggles in the game being backwards? Aim isn't toggle. Crouching isn't toggle. Running is toggle . Tell me thats not setup for console friendly.

How about the glorious interface interface that NEVER works for inviting someone to your game? Sure we can blame GameSpy, but I blame the makers of Borderlands. They are the ones who chose Gamespy.





Look. I'm not saying I don't like Borderlands. Its not a bad game. Not by a long shot. Its got some really good things about it. I actually kinda like it in a way. But the interface and controls just downright stink.

If you have guns equipped, scroll mouse-wheel and weapons will scroll. Weapons will scroll in the order you equip them in slots 1 thru 4. You have a maximum of 4 weapons slots, you can also decide to choose a weapon by selecting 1, 2, 3 or 4.

Aim is not toggled, you can bind if you want to. Given the nature of many of the sniper weapons, you will come to appreciate it when you find the legendary weapons. With the recoil, different rates of fire and elemental special and splash effects, staying zoomed in would essentially blind you.

Crouching is a toggle. Running is also a toggle. Not sure why this is bad. Many games have this.

Yep, can't argue with you on this for the gamespy piece. But, I have not had issues with inviting people to my server. Remember I invited you, your friend and my friend. 3 people joined my server with my invites. I only ever received 1 invite from your end which, unfortunately, I cancelled while I was chatting in a steam window with you.

Yah, it has a lot of love/hate

I just love the whole finding of new weapons thing, levelling up and going on raids/quests v/s much higher ranked enemies like the Crawmerax and others.

Given some of the terrible games I have previously played, and given some of the issues you spoke about when we were playing on the same server, I just don't buy everything you have spoken about

I love how most of his complaints about the interface is related to controls.

Man, I love that the iron sights isn't toggle, I ****ING HATE TOGGLE AIM. It slows you down too much. One of my biggest gripes with Metro2033 is that it has toggle iron sights.

Well there is a limited carry capacity and only two weapon slots. I don't think the switching weapons is based on consoles, it's just based on the carry limitations given.

Use the config editor. Aiming and crouching are toggles for me and I like toggle on running so I don't have to hold shift all the time.

After you use that tool, I don't think you will have issues.
