Probably our major gripe with Gearbox’s many-weaponed first-person-roleplayer Borderlands was that hosting/joining multiplayer games was more complicated than painting a ceiling with a live scorpion. Four people dicking around with router settings is hardly gung-ho adventuring. A mere four months after release, they’ve finally fixed the networking problems that made the game’s super-fun co-op mode super-unfun. Or so they say. Actually they say this: “Multiplayer connectivity has been improved; users should no longer be required to forward ports to host or join multiplayer games.” Which is excellent, if depressingly tardy news. Does this 1.21 patch solve the problem for you? Tell us! Oh – that link in the sentence before last is purely for boxed copies of the game – Steam et al will update automagically.
