Default Gonna retry Borderlands

Played it when it first came out and didnt much care for it, but i kinda just ran through it and gunn'd down everything in my way.

Im reinstalling it, patching it, and throwing on all 3 DLCs.

Give me some tips to enjoy the game

I've done all the quests so no biggie for me Now I just play Crawmerax harvesting missions in co-op on the Knoxx DLC. Best loot in all the game, and hardest boss by far (done with legit guns).

Co-op is fun

I've been playing it for a week or two breathemetal, it's very good. When I bought it a long time ago I stopped playing it after an hour I didn't like it. But it gets better and you can immerse yourself in the atmosphere in there, feels like a real planet

Tips: don't give up if you die constantly over and over to begin with it's not easy on the first few levels. Later there are some tough bosses and nowhere is safe all the time

You can play it through a couple of times, there's not much of a storyline but just staying alive is a 24/7 job I'm looking forward to getting the DLCs too

The only DLC really worth getting is Knoxx.

The other 2 have their moments but Knoxx is perhaps the greatest DLC EVER !!!

But we should maybe play all the way through before getting it Sazar?

Did you see the Rage video? Borderlands on steroids

Wasn't there supposed to be a 4th DLC? I thought when Knoxx came out they said there was one more, but I could be wrong. It's certainly getting to the point where it would be too late to release one, if not past that point already.

Yah, finish the original game before getting Knoxx. Knoxx adds a lot (character levelling, new guns) but it absolutely will destroy the original game balance if you just get it since the original game is still level locked at around 50 for the 2nd playthrough.

I second this. Even though, this title has run its course for me. Fantastic game but I've kinda grown bored with it.
