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.


 

Some hacker jimmies ripped open the latest PC patch for Borderlands and found new info on the next DLC.

So there's a bunch of spoilers, and I highly reccomend you don't read the whole thread at gearbox forums, but it's there if you want it.

It seems we'll finally get to see the Interplanetary Ninja Assasin Claptrap in action, as he's tired of seing his fellow robots enslaved and tries to take over pandora.

No word on the release date yet, but if code is already leaking into the patches, it sounds like it's getting close. I need me some more Borderlands!

The patch was released for the PC and PS3 Tuesday November 2nd, but the XBOX patch had been delayed. Here's the latest update:

Update 5:00pm (CST) 11/3/2010
Roadblocks to releasing the free TU to our 360 fans have been removed, and we expect it to start rolling out within the hour and should be to everyone's 360 by tomorrow morning (11/4 Morning)

No official word on what caused the delay but the smart money is on MS being really busy fixing things with the new XBOX dashboard recently released for Kinect. Yet another reason to hate the Kinect, yeah! Why do you think it was delayed? Leave a comment!

The third DLC expansion for Borderlands is out. How does it stack up?

Here we are with another review of another Borderlands DLC, and I feel like I'm repeating myself becuase Gearbox has a habit of releasing great DLC that is marred by one or two flaws.

In the last DLC (Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot) there were some issues with the tournaments just being to long and the font colors in the bank just being damn unreadable (purple on orange?).

This time around we get great new features like new cars (but you can't use them in the old maps and they're still fragile as hell to enemy gunfire), a new level cap (although the old enemies in the main game don't level up with you turning it into a cakewalk with no good weapons to find), new guns (though I've only found better versions of my old ones as the new, cyan colored guns are very rare). There are also quite a few "glitches" in this expansion. We've found more than a few places to fall through the floor or walk through a wall or walk into an invisible wall. (See video.)

The biggest problem is the lack of fast travel stations throughout the DLC forcing you to drive everywhere. This wouldn't be too much of a problem if the levels you drove through were all open areas, but they tend to be straight freeway driving. That plus the fragility of your ride means a lot of driving straight and not stopping to get where you're going. It's like a family vacation simulator. There are certain missions at the road's end that need to be turned in back at the starting town, T-Bone Junction. It's faster to save, exit, and reload to get back there than it is driving, and the driving offers very little in the way of "fun".

Having said all that, the actual game play once you get out of your car is still there, and there are some great new enemies to fight and they are definitely a challenge your first time through. I especially enjoyed fighting packs of Devastators (baddies in giant mech suits).

I'd normally give something with this many problems but so much fun a "rent" rating, but since this is DLC, you can't really do that, so I'll say this: If you have Borderlands already, this is a worthwhile expansion. Buy it. If you don't have Borderlands or rented it but didn't like it, this isn't going to make you go out and get it.

So, overall, Buy it (if you have the main game already).

Borderlands re-review

By: BatRastered Feb 11, 2010 | 4 Comments

After spending close to 200 hours (!!!) on this game, what's still interesting? Plus new info on the Secret Armory of General Knoxx DLC.

When we first got our hands on this game we played through it in co-op, beating the game around level 34. The second play through gave a greater challenge and allowed us to max our characters out at level 50 (the highest level until the new DLC comes out) but we stopped and didn't beat the second play through. We thought we were done and had seen everthing the game had to offer. WRONG.

Starting with the release of the Zombie Island of Dr. Ned DLC (see our review), we returned to planet Pandora (no relation to Avatar). While the Zombie expansion provided some new sights and enemies, we again quit playing once it was pwned.

Next came the Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot expansion (review here). This gave us a bank to hold weapons (finally!) and gave you a nice arena to test out any new weapons you've found towards the end of the game on enemies actually at your level. While this DLC was not without problems (purple text on orange backround for one) it did open up a whole new reason to keep playing... finding newer guns and mods and testing them out with different charcter skill tree builds. So now I can still play even for just to kill a few minutes by searching for loot, it is strangely addicting, but you should see some of these guns, Jimmy! Pwnn! When more time is available (not much since Mass Effect 2 and Bioshock 2 dropped) I like to search for loot, change up my character's skill points and test out the different builds to see what works best.

I think I've spent a lot of time in this game and know all there is to know and have seen all there is to see (again) then I see someone post something like this and realize that some people must've played this game 3x as much as I have... Insane. This game is a cult classic for sure.

I'm looking forward to the new DLC "The Secret Armory of General Knoxx" which will supposedly raise the level cap and pit us against even stronger, armored enemies. (Sounds alot like Broken Steel for Fallout 3, which was my favorite DLC of last year.) They're sure to fall against some of the equipment I have now, but, being an "armory" I expect new weapons and gear!

Update: We still don't know what the max level will be, but it will be at least 61 as evidenced by this new achievment:

A first-person shooter/rpg on a distant planet in a post apocolyptic setting. With a very unique art style. 4 player co-op ... Lets play this Jimmy!

Borderlands a new game from publisher 2k games and developer Gearbox who worked on Halo CE for the pc and just recently released Brothers in Arms and also worked on Half-life. This new game has a very unique art style it's cel-shaded but very gritty. I like it the colors.

As far as the gameplay, you can select from four different classes. A hunter, he has a sniper rifle. A soldier, he just raips on the ground level. A siren who looks like she has an emp and can boost the parties experience gain. And a berserker who just pounds the shit of things. So yes, a first-person shooter with experience gain. One of the first of it's kind. I'm interested and as the game's release gets closer, I've been paying more attention.

Check out these videos and do some pre-ordering. Gamestop is giving you a bonus weapon exclusive weapon cache. BestBuy doesn't have anything extra for the game.

This game looks fun as hell with four friends online, lets pwn!

Borderlands what is wrong with Mad Moxxi DLC

By: goukijones Jan 6, 2010 | 4 Comments

There isn't much first of all. This basically is a $10 storage bank for your extra weapons. Especially the fact that they ...

Mad Moxxi Borderlands dlc

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!
