Usually you release a trailer before the game, not the other way around. UPDATE... Trailer is up finally!
Well, the Claptrap DLC is out. I'm not getting it yet, the patch that ups the level cap is not out yet and there's no real word on exactly when it will be out... Just "soon". Also there was supposed to be a trailer for it... It still says coming soon. It seems dumb to run through a new DLC when my characters are maxxed out, I know they don't controll the exact release date of the patch as it has to be approved by MS and Sony, but they need to have this lined up or at least give us an idea where it stands.
I don't get it. If I ran a big gaming company, you can be sure that when a big game/dlc pack comes out you can be damn sure I'd hype the shit out of it BEFORE it came out. Hopefully we'll see something soon.
Trailer is now live. 12 hours after the game came out... but who's counting.

2010 Jimmy Gem nominees for best games still being played from 2009. Please comment.
Nobody put more time into Borderlands than BatRastered this year. Borderlands also released 2 DLC's and a patch that raised the level cap. Borderlands is one of the most talked about games on Gouki.com. Borderlands catalog page.
Personally I played the shit out of this game this year. I love it! According to Raptr I played 119 hours of this. What it doesn't say is that was within a weeks time span. Read the PWN diaries.
Halo 3 [Jan-Sept]
You gotta be playing some sort of Halo right Jimmy. Halo is Gouki.com's preferred shooter.
Street Fighter IV [Jan-Apr]
"Insert Cinderkin endless battle on endless nights take here."
Winners will be announced December 29th. Did we leave anything out? What's your favorite? Leave a comment below! AND don't forget to vote for your favorites in our Video Game Catalog.
Zombies and an additional 7 hours of gameplay for 10 bucks. Braaaaaaaaaaaains!
Borderlands may have been the surprise hit of the year in 2009. While I'm not a fan of paying for DLC so close to the release of a game, I can say that an extra 7 hours of play (co-op no less) for 10 bucks actually represents a pretty solid value these days.
There are new enemies to fight (zombies), though the main difference between them and the human raiders from the main game is that the zombies have no shields and tend to attack in swarms. (This make fire and blast elemental weapons particularly effective.) There are a few other new creatures such as the wereskags and some bat like creatures that take place of the flying rakk.
The new area (Jakob's Cove) is quite large, so much so that it was a bit dissapointing that you couldn't fast travel between the new areas that were in it. It doesn't appear that any new weapons or weapon types were added for this expansion (at least we didn't come accross any).
The humor from the main game is here, and is even turned up a notch with some laugh out loud moments when coming accross some of the characters.
If you enjoyed playing through the original quests, you should definitely pick this up, with the same caveat I'd give the full game; it's much more fun to play co-op online than alone.
Verdict: Buy it (or should I say, download it).

New details emerge on the Secret Armory of General Knoxx DLC for Borderlands
- New level cap of 61
- More backpack space
- New enemies
- New weapons
- New vehicles
- 800 MS points on XBL, or $10 for PC or PS3.
Straight from Gearbox comes this news on the new Borderlands DLC. It was rumored (due to the achievments list being released) that the level cap has been raised from 50 to 61. This is now confirmed. You will get skill points for these new levels and there are missions that will increase your backpack size (probably more claptrap rescues).
Some new enemies were shown including the Crimson Lance's assasins, fast moving chicks with swords who drop in on you ODST style in a pod (interplanetary ninja assasins?). Also, midgets riding on skags! To give you a fighting chance against these new enemies, there will be new weapons (as well as the level cap of 48 on the old weapons and gear being increased).
A new vehicle was shown which seats all 4 co-op players, 1 driver and 3 gunners, though the weapons will be unique (one person can lay mines, for instance). This is in addition to the "monster" truck which was already shown and the existing runner.
The cost of the DLC was confirmed as $10 (which translates to 800 MS points for those playing on the XBox 360). Still no solid release date other than "soon".

Claptrap's new Robot Revolution is coming the 28th. Level 69! UPDATED with scaling info.
On September 28th, you will be able to download both the latest DLC for Borderlands (Claptrap's New Robot Revolution) and a free patch that boosts the level cap to 69. (That's 8 new levels if you already have the General Knoxx, but a whopping 19 if you don't.)
On October 12, you can buy the game and all 4 DLC in the Game of the Year edition for $60. Be sure to check back on Gouki.com for Deals, Jimmy!
It sounds like there will have to be some scalling of the main game to account for this new level cap. Here's hoping we see some level 69 Ass Kicking Skags soon.
I'm a little dissapointed they didn't put this out this week while we are all waiting for Reach, we're gonna be knee deep in the Reach still when this comes out I think... We'll see. More info coming soon!
[UPDATE Sep 7, 2010]
From an employee at the Gearbox forums:
Sorry guys. I was totally exhausted last night after PAX but now I'm on a plane (with Wifi!) and have time to clarify.
-People who do not own Knoxx will have a level cap of 58
-People who do own Knoxx will have a level cap of 69
The main game and DLC's will scale with level. The gear will scale.. Com Decks will be similar though to DLC3 as their item levels are different from others.
Main game and DLC require quests to be completed before enemies begin to scale. Most players will have already completed these when they get to that point.
Crawmermax will also scale to the new cap.
So yes if you play the main Borderlands game and you are 69.. the enemies will scale to 69
I'm almost as excited for this patch as I am for the DLC... More loot!
[UPDATE Sep 28]
Here's the trailer... No word on the patch yet.
There isn't much first of all. This basically is a $10 storage bank for your extra weapons. Especially the fact that they ...
Who colored the bank orange? Did anyone test this? You can not read what the purple guns or mods are with that color background Jimmy! The other colors are hard to read too. There's no real reward for beating Mad Moxxi that I can see, except an achievement and two extra skill points which are meaningless at this point.
Getting into the actual Riot Arena waves is something else. It's fairly simple and fun to play. In an attempt to change up the repetitiveness of the waves there's a "roulette" type feature that pops up and gives you or the enemies different types of bonuses or negative effects. Number two problem here, at the end of every level there is a weapon and health drop that fall from the sky. Being in the right spot helps during this, you have less than 10 seconds to pick the stuff up. With 3 seconds left the "roulette" wheel pops up and blocks the entire screen, right as your run up to an ammo pack ... too bad you can't see it anymore. At 2 seconds left everything disappears. Bottom line here is the "roulette" wheel is poorly designed. Just be quick and look up in the sky for the drop. You have less than 8 seconds!
Why isn't there more detailed stats especially at the end of 5 rounds. It would be so cool to see like a critical count, accuracy, anything, get creative with it Borderlands style. I can't believe there are not in-depth stats.
Borderlands Mad Moxxi should have been $5. It is fun though and I've beaten the first set of arenas and will play the next three. Plus it brought me back to Borderlands, I just beat the regular campaign again today with my second character. Mordecai and Brick 4 life!
Thanks for pausing the wave by the way Gearbox, the worst thing about ODST wave battles was that you could not even take a minute to piss. Jimmys playing that shit for 4-5-8-100 hours plus, fuck that. Props on the break between waves!
I've spent $70 and over 80 hours on Borderlands so far and I'd say it was worth every penny! Don't be a Jimmy!

We need a 4th person to play the Mad Moxxi's highest level to the get the achievements for beating all 3 .. or something ... contact ..... Jimmy?
Contact BatRastered!! via Xbox Live through his Gouki.com profile. You must pass a very serious line of questioning and performance tests. He can tell you more of what we need for the team, to raip. We have a Siren, Solider, and a Sniper/Tank. A few different combinations will work, but talk to Batty about that.
Oh yeah, you gotta sign up for Gouki.com and leave a comment on this story or Batty will just laugh at your message and then delete. Don't be a Jimmy. Join the fun.
This bitch is gonna get railed! Monday August 30th 2010 @ 10:00AM Pacific. Be online, be approved by BatRastered and lets PWN!Read full story...
