Borderlands Preview

By: goukijones Oct 7, 2009 | 11 Comments

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!

New Borderlands DLC Mad Moxxi Release date

By: goukijones Dec 10, 2009 | 7 Comments

Storage box! Is that worth ten bucks to you Jimmy? Or is there more?!

Mad Moxxi Borderlands dlc

So she's crazy right. She is in charge of the "Underdome" yeah, kinda like the Thunderdome. The game is cool like that, I'm telling you the truth. Basically my biggest draw is the new arena modes which promises to throw waves and waves of some of the baddest enimies from Pandora at you. There's also a storage box, so you can store some guns and stuff Jimmy. Also you get TWO yeah only TWO more skill points to level up with, but no new level cap and no information on how many missions or side quests. 

The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned was excellent DLC and I got my monies worth so I'll be watching this new DLC close. Ready to go into the arena Jimmy?!

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:

Ding! Overleveled to 11
Reach Level 61

FnJimmy & the shield Borderlands 2012

By: goukijones Apr 25, 2012 | 5 Comments

FnJimmy astonishes us all once again. Completely not paying attention or straight up STEALING from GoukiJones? You make the call. Watch the video.

If you can't hear what's going on. What happened was, GoukiJones upgraded his shield and offered his old one to FnJimmy. FnJimmy takes it. Just a little while later, GoukiJones finds another shield and then gives his old one to FnJimmy as well. At this point though FnJimmy denies even asking for the first one, saying that his shield that he's had on all night is better than both. WTF? Don't be a Jimmy!

Thanks to Raychul for sharing our video in her Top 7 Things Gamers Hate. I'll tell you 1 thing gamers don't hate. Boobs. :)

So you can hear me screaming about vintage Borderlands' invisible walls @3:09.

Leave a comment on this video on YouTube for me too and give a shout out to Gouki.com. Don't be a Jimmy!

Check out her site. I'm sure you Jimmys will love it.

Number 1 in the World!

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!

Borderlands Review

By: goukijones Oct 24, 2009 | 7 Comments

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!

Claptrap's New Robot Revolution Review

By: BatRastered Nov 21, 2010 | 9 Comments

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!

Verdict: Buy
