E3: Images of Borderlands

2KGames and Gearbox Software has at least a couple of images from Borderlands to show, no trailer in sight yet though.
Update: The teaser posted was a bit old.

this that game with like 10 000 guns in it ain't it...well it looks like it got a massive downgrade in graphics =D I remember seeing this game on Gameinformer mag like 2 years ago =}

Why does it remind me of the road warrior?

I have high hopes for this game, but I agree... the graphics look horrible in these screens.

Hopefully it's just a bad batch.

I think it looks fine, and it probably looks a lot better moving. People have way too high of expectations for graphics this generation.

Pictures did not do it for me... I have to see this in motion.
Anyhow I have high hopes for this after the exciting teaser trailer we've seen.

You are right, there aren't that many weapons in the game, only the possibility of combinations of pieces is about 500 000. But if that is your sales pitch for a game? The screenshots are really ugly. Gearbox has already downgraded the graphics for BIA: hell's highway, now this? What are they doing over there. Never really liked that Randy Pitchford 'that happened because it was awesome'.

I agree that it doesn't look that bad and there might be a certain trade off in terms of scale, but when looking at games like Mirrors Edge...I don't think people's expectations are that unreasonable.

I mean, I still can't believe that what we're seeing of Mirrors Edge is actually ingame...I wouldn't have believed this would be possible on the PS3 and 360 two or three years ago, but it is...and I don't expect this is the best we'll be seeing yet...

Concerning this game...I don't expect to see it before 2020 going by Gearbox's reputation...Looks mighty interesting though!

Commented on 2008-07-16 22:24:40
please, look at id's Rage - thats how you do a Mad Max type game. This looks like garbage
Commented on 2008-07-17 01:51:42
High resolution textures next to 8-bit ones....
Commented on 2008-07-17 07:54:32
Looks awful graphically.

So we wait all this time to see something from this game, and we end up with a trailer that we all saw about a year ago? Poor form Borderlands, poor form.

There is a gameplay demonstration at IGN if you're interested. It certainly looks much better in motion and looks interesting...except for the aiming which lacks any sense of accuracy.
Commented on 2008-07-18 00:05:15
Ah okay, will check it out. Thanks :)
Commented on 2008-07-18 00:06:29
The video over at IGN was rather dark. I guess it looks alright, but I don't have any plans on picking it up. From what I could see, it does in fact look better in motion. Then again, most games do.
Commented on 2008-07-18 00:13:50
Was it part of the live stream? I can't find it. :(

I'm pretty sure that was the one I watched.
Commented on 2008-07-18 00:28:17
Cheers. Well it looks a lot better than these screenshots suggest. It looks pretty good overall, and there aren't an awful lot of FPS RPG games out. However, i'm not a huge fan of vehicle combat so I probably wouldn't pick this up.

Looked pretty cool though.
Commented on 2008-07-18 00:51:12

it actually doesnt look bad, sort of what too human would be like if it was a FPS and actually good...lol. im sure its nice for the devs to be able to say they have the most weapons in a game ever thanks to their procedurally generated 500,000+ guns...but honestly, i'd rather have a handfull of well designed, usefull weapons, then hundreds of thousands of pointless ones.

I dunno that they showed actual stuff, it was a CG trailer so yeah, and the rest was just target render stuff. and it looks really quite good.

The teaser/trailer caught my attention, but after watching the gameplay video that beanbagman posted, I am quite interested in this game. If the GAMEPLAY is worthwhile, then I don't give a shit about the GRAPHICS...just as long as it doesn't look like something from 1999.

I am definitely going to keep a close eye on this one.

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @AndreasZ94: for consoles 3d gaming (with a few exceptions) started with the 32bit era. for people playing on computers they's been a steady stream of 3d games from back to the early 80's (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yea.. NPCs in single player games should send you hate mail, like real people ;) (2 Hours ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 @MrWhite: I feel like its the enemy reactions to getting shot that's the real problem, they recover so fast and act like they never got shot (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @AndreasZ94: I've only played a bit of U4, but from what I did, it wasn't a big step up from 3. (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Ellie helping you out in melee situations was fun too. It's their only game where they made some good gameplay design elements when it came to enemies. (4 Hours ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 @MrWhite: Are u talking about U4 because i feel like the gunplay was pretty good, same for U2 (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @AndreasZ94: Certainly their best game of combining both, hence why I think its their best. They got the pacing right, but it also had a extra element in horror. (4 Hours ago)
