I'm trying to comment on the Borderlands 2 story on the front page but my comment (below, in case it's needed here) keeps getting marked as spam, even after I removed the paragraph I previously had in about links between this game, viagra, the size of your penis and the opportunity to work from home and make $200 a day. Could one of you bods fix it, please?
Comment; I think Yahtzee and I were the only two people left completely cold by Borderlands (for pretty much the same reasons, if I remember his review correctly). Due to a lack of RL PC gaming friends at the time I played it single player, though, which clearly isn't what it's meant for. Since them, several friends have made the console->PC switch so I'll have a group to play it with, but for me to even consider buying it I'll want to see an inventory system that actually works. If they've got "eighty seven bajillion guns", then I'd like a way to pick out the four guns out of that eighty seven gajillion that I've actually got some use for (as opposed to the 86.9999 gajillion guns which I will have to throw away because they are entirely useless) without giving myself a headache or RSI. Using Borderlands' inventory felt like trying to work one of those bloody awful manufacturer-made PC interface programs for printers/scanners.
An interesting setting, interesting bad guys, interesting characters, interesting missions, interesting combat mechanics and an interesting plot would be welcome additions too.
