The patch has been out for the PS3 and PC since Tuesday morning but was delayed on the XBOX 360. Kinect dashboard to blame?
Title Update 1.41 Notes:
- Level cap increase of 8 levels for all players.
- Original Borderlands players will now be able to achieve level 58.
- Owners of The Secret Armory of General Knoxx can achieve a record setting increase to a maximum level of 69.
- Enemies now scale to new level caps throughout the whole game as long as playthrough 2 has been completed.
- Item drops (with the exception of COM Decks) will now scale to new enemy level caps.
- DLC4 Achievement/Trophy glitches that have affected some users will now properly award players for obtaining these achievements.
Borderlands fans, new and old, will now be able to hunt and kill more in Pandora than ever before with this new free Title Update for Borderlands! Players with the original Borderlands will now be able to achieve Level 58 on all their characters, up from Level 50, while owners of The Secret Armory of General Knoxx can achieve a record setting maximum level of 69, up from 61! Players who have also completed playthrough 2 will now be able to challenge themselves in every place in Pandora! Every enemy and boss will scale to the players level, giving players the chance to enjoy past zones all over again.
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!
Leveling up and shooting Jimmys in the face is a perfect match for me.
After only sitting down to play this game only 3 times, I've already logged over 20 hours and have leveled up to 25. When the game says it has a bazillion guns it's not joking, almost every character carries a different gun and every time you open a treasure chest it has new guns that entire party scrambles to get a glimpse of.
Yeah the party Jimmy. This a four player co-op RPS, RPS means Role playing shooter. It's something new. Kind of like something people were asking for after playing Fallout 3 for a little while. Where is the co-op? Here it is in Borderlands.
The setting here is a distant planet named Pandora. More like a Mad Max type world than a "Capital Wasteland." The graphics are cel-shaded, yes Jimmys are still making cel-shaded games. The game looks cool, the graphics don't really make a huge difference for me. The gunplay is spot on, the menu takes a little getting used to and the driving takes some practice.
I'm really enjoying this game and I look forward to playing it. It's super fun and really ... any game that's multiplayer that has a solid party system that is easy to use and most importantly FUN. My final verdict here is an easy choice.
This a Buy Jimmy!
Borderlands' 4th DLC and a scaling patch add even more to an already addictive game
I've played a lot of Borderlands since it was released last year. Gearbox has done a great job supporting it and keeping it interesting with DLC. First there was the Zombie Island of Dr Ned. A few good hours of extra game play and some extra backpack space, add in a zombie apocalypse and you're in for a good time. Next was Mad Moxxie's Underdome Riot. I had some problems with this one as it didn't add much beyond a bank to hold some extra gear, but it did give you the opportunity to play against waves of enemies over and over again. The third DLC was The Secret Armory of General Knoxx. Knoxx added 11 levels to the level cap (bringing it to 61) and added a ton of gameplay and new enemies to fight. The Secret Armory will likely be nominated for best DLC this year. We thought this was the end of Borderlands until the inevitable sequel. As it turns out, we got one more parting gift from Gearbox.
The fourth (and final?) DLC is called Claptrap's new Robot Revolution and takes place after the events of the main game. Your friendly robot guide from the game (CL4P-TP, aka Claptrap) has been reprogrammed into an Interplanetary Ninja Assassin! He was supposed to just kill you, but he noticed all his fellow claptraps being “subjugated” and decided to set them all free and start a revolution. The expansion is filled with historical symbolism (Che Guevara and Stalin style posters, but with claptraps instead, references to the robot “proletariat”). Borderlands has always been one of the smartest and funniest games around with this type of thing and the Robot Revolution does not dissapoint.
In his attempt to take over the planet, Claptrap and his buddies have robot-ized all your former enemies from the original game, even bringing many bosses back from the dead. Unfortunately, the robot versions of these baddies don't seem to behave any differently than their “fleshbag” counterparts.
The levels are large and there are lots of cool, hidden areas to explore with none of the long freeway driving that plagued Knoxx, although it does feel at times that certain levels wind unnecessarily just to make you walk farther.
Of course, I can't talk about Robot Revolution without mentioning the scaling patch that was released a few weeks later. The patch both raised the level cap an additional 8 levels (to 69, hah!) and fixed the pre-Knoxx part of the game to scale up to your level, making the game challenging again. I held off playing the Robot Revolution until the patch was available as I didn't want to complete a bunch of missions and not level up knowing the patch was just around the corner. This is really my only complaint about the DLC is that the patch didn't drop first or at the same time.
If you own a copy of Borderlands, you really should play this DLC, at
1200 800 MSP ($10 US) it's a hell of a deal, and the patch is free. I still think the General Knoxx DLC adds a little bit more than this for the same price, so if you can get only one, go for that. If you don't have Borderlands yet, you can pick up the Game of the Year Edition which includes all 4 DLCs, for hundreds of hours of looting and shooting!

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).
A Game Of The Year Edition 10 Years Later. SOLD!

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!
Coming in September for 800 MS points or $9.99 on PC/PSN.
From Gearbox's website:
We have announced with 2K that Claptrap's New Robot Revolution will be the next installment of DLC for Borderlands.
The DLC will include new missions, new enemies, more backpack slots, more skill points and more. The DLC will be available this September on Xbox Live for 800 points, and Playstation Network and PC for $9.99.
I can't believe they're targeting September... Do they not know Halo is coming? Release this in August and I'll play the hell out of it, I'm gonna be playing the Reach come the 14th though.
Claptrap wants you to buy Borderlands Game of the Year Edition!

Tuesday February 9th, 2010. Bioshock 2 Release date. This is the car ride to and from the Toys R Us to pick up the Bioshock 2. Don't be a Jimmy! Watch the Vlog and leave a comment on the new Gouki.com. Thanks.
What's the best DLC of 2010? See our nominees here and voice your opinion in the comments.
Borderlands - The Secret Armory of General Knoxx
Nothing mad me laugh harder than this add on this year. Quality humor, plus raising the level cap by 11 and giving us new weapons and shields to play with? Sign me up.
Red Dead Redemption - The Undead Nightmare
John Marston is back (from the dead?) that alone should be enough for this. New weapons and, of course, Zombears make this an exciting new addition. Let's not forget that Rockstar gave us some free DLC for this earlier too.
Halo Reach - Noble Map Pack
Okay, multiplayer map packs aren't super exciting, especially when there's only 3 of them for 10 bucks, but these are really good maps and that counts for something.
Winners will be announced December 29th. Did we leave anything out? What's your favorite? Leave a comment below!
