Default Borderlands Developer: "PC version DESTROYS console version"

Check, check it: http://www.destructoid.com/gearbox-p...s-142856.phtml

Ignore the idiot "reporter" who talks about KB&M being worse than a controller and for noobs... he's a professional idiot (his reviews are even worse).

Good news.

Borderlands look okay, from what I have read / seen. It could be good but I'm more interested in RAGE more.

Well Borderlands will probably release a year before Rage, so you can play both!

The new art direction makes me feel about the same as old D2 fans atm. BUT......I will be getting this game regardless. Co-op is the wave of the future for gaming to me, sure flashy graphics and other bells n whistles, but co-op is you and your buddy(ies). Nothing beats that as far as gaming goes...this being my opinion.

The game looks interesting, but **** that art style. It looks awful. It used to look great why is rotoscoping such a popular phenomenon. It barely works for Philip K. Dick novels, and certainly does not for arbitrary reasons. The fact the main selling point is that its "cool and all the textures are hand-painted!" just shows me that Gearbox needs new PR guys.

"The Gearbox boss then tried to choose between PCs and consoles: "It’s tough. It’s very tough, I’ll tell ya. On one level I do like sitting on my couch with the surround sound and the wireless controller, on the other level I mean you will not get a better-looking image than in the PC version of the game."

I wish this mentality would go away - it is just as easy to buy a wireless 360 controller and play a PC game on a couch. My PC is hooked up to my HDTV and I am reclining in my Lazy-Boy chair as I type this, in fact.

Well I think most PC gamers use their computer for other things as well, and need to have it at a desk in an office or somesuch thing... that is probably more where the thought of consoles being for the living room comes from, rather than technical issues with having a PC in a living room.

I actually could easily put my rig on the TV... we have a laptop as well and I could put that at the desk for printing and such... but I personally like going in another room and playing games away from the living room... I consider it an asset to PCs as a gaming platform.

Side note: later in that same quote he says KB&M is much better for shooters, which hopefully means we get awesome controls for Borderlands.

Did I read that correctly?

The reviewer said that an FPS game (L4D) is not comfortable with a KB&M?

WOW

FPS's are DESIGNED for KB&M.

Yeah, he's an idiot. Literally every post he makes on that site annoys me.

I played the Left 4 Dead demo on 360 and it was freaking TERRIBLE to control. Just terrible... and that comes from someone who plays a good number of console shooters.

I didn't have a mouse but I had my laptop and a 360 controller one time. So I used the controller, and holy ****, that was the worst thing ever on L4D.

Agreed. Just can't get into the visuals like they are. Bring on Rage.
