Borderlands: Controversial Screenshot Gallery

We got our first look at the internet-dividing redesign of Gearbox's open-world shooty/drivey game a couple of weeks back, and now the venting's mostly out of the way (because it is out of the way isn't it, shouty men?), we can all enjoy a whole host of screens.
