    Looks like the shields are all named, in a similar manner to the guns, so I guess they are the armour replacement as far as the lootage goes.

    Going to pretend this doesn't exist now so that it is a nice surprise in a couple of months time.

    A loot game with no armour?

    Hmmm, that sounds a bit wrong :(

    Yeah. I know it's first person and all, but in this kind of game, I want to see my character go from flimsy cotton pants to full-body titanium armour.

    Apparently not.

    Watching Lou's video above... does this game actually have missions and stuff? Or do you basically just wander around shooting stuff? They don't seem particularly keen on showing off the RPGey bits other than the loot.

    It's guns, which there are supposed to be a fuckton of to be fair, shields, ammo and grenade types I think. If they offer a large variety of options with them like support class type stuff, unusual attack options and lots of stat modifications then it should be great.
    AoE weapons and large groups of enemies too please.

    Clothes and such would be nice. :/

    I have to say, this looks like a sleeper hit. Wasn't interested but this game is slowly making it's way to my must buy list.

    Yes. As an example the little dancing robot in the music video trailer is a quest source.

    No clothes, its an FPS so they concentrated on the things that you can see.

    Have to agree with one of the posters on that link - I'm probably getting the game, going by what I've seen on videos and so forth, provided it doesn't turn out to be pap in reviews and so on, but if I was perusing my local games shop, I'm not sure it would provoke any interest, as it looks a bit like the kind of things me and my mate used to draw when we were 11.

    Apart from the bit on the tearaway, which I'm guessing was part of the original box art.

    To preorder or not to preorder. Hmm....

    I'm a bit concerned that we haven't had a demo. What is it, about 10 weeks to go now? We must be close to demo range.

    I wonder if part of the decision to change the art style was to try and distance it visually from Fallout 3. With a standard renderer it would have looked almost identical. That dude is a raider, plain and simple.

    So, anybody going to the London Expo perhaps up for a bit of shoot-and-lootage on the demo pods? I shall be there, and I'm starting to think that that idea of having your Mii's travelling inside the Wii controller would have been great for the bigger consoles, too, then I could take, for instance, my Gamertag along in my own 360 controller, and rack up a few more EXP whilst away from home.

    /hasn't got a memory card.

    I'm going Ag, the only snag is this is out on 23/10 and the egpo is on teh 30th. I'm keeping my preorder for now but this game really could go either way for me.

    Yes I may already have bought and played it by then, just thought it might be nice (if it isn't utterly crap) to get together with some other EGers and talk smack whilst shlooting.

    What HAVE they done?!? Gameplay montage, that's causing my interest in this to cool. D:

    I am with sargulesh - what's the problem, Machetazo? If anyhting, it looks a bit more frantic than before (which is a good thing in my opinion, as the action looked a bit tame in some of the videos).

    It looks like just another shooter, but with an art direction I don't get on with. I'm concerned they took a great idea, full of character and replaced it with....This. Maybe if I see mission footage, it will leave a better impression. I really like the box art, though. But the video I linked to, almost makes me want to vomit on sight of it. :( It's just so mindless, and shallow.

    But it's supposed to be a grindy RPG-shooter isn't it, Machetazo? Mindless and shallow, to at least some extent, are almost pre-requisites there. As long as the core loop of gameplay is fun, the setting varied, and the lewt whore-worthy I'll be slapping down my cash on day one.

    Of course it's mindless and shallow, that's the whole point - I am not sure what you were expecting! And they changed to that art style ages ago, did you see it the first time? :)

    Yeah, I suspect Machetazo maybe hasn't seen gameplay videos of this for a while :)

    Yup. Doesn't look much different to what has already been shown at all.

    This is what Borderlands ought to be, it equates to the name. i identify that with the name. They said they'd altered the art style? Fine, but why can't I identify any of that game, under what's there now.

    I have at some point or other seen a video of this in its current state, but it was brief glimpses as i recall, and i even began to warm to and appreciate the merits of the "new art style reveal" mag still. But, that trailer I linked to, shows all the things I most dislike. (with the exception of the driving bit - that didn't look bad). Again, keywords: mindless, shallow. There are other games I play for that. I never thought this would settle at that level.
    Also, Phattso, if the game's for you and you're eager to put your cash down day one, then all power to you, and I hope you have fun playing. :)
    I'm writing of my own impression and reaction, not attempting to influence or sway other people's.

    Yeah, no, that's fair. We're all just surprised by your bump because this game has looked like that current trailer for a while. To be fair, I think it looks great, though the trailer you linked is hardly the most flattering and doesn't give any sense of the game's depth or features. "Co-op Fallout 3" is the tagline people have adopted to describe it and that sounds good to me.
