What's with the "censored" thingy on this video ? :D
Also I don't really like the artwork-ish look of the game, it just doesn't fit a war game D:

It's not really a war game :D. On the trailer- it looks pretty cool. And on the game? Hell yeah, seems like it's definitely gonna be worth checking out.
kinda, sorta alive.

I am not entirely sure about the art style, but I'll keep an eye on it to see if it's worth it.

And what was with that big monster thing with a vagina on it's face?? :D

It looks good, but i'm still not sold on the art style. Rage looks better IMO.

It worth to get for that style imo, otherwise looks much like other stereotyped shooters.

Alnough i can see how you might compare them (Similar world style?) Rage is not at all like Borderlands. Rage a single player FPS (Multiplayer arena mode?)
and Borderlands is a Single/Multiplayer Co-Op FPS/RPG Also a lot of other factors in the game are different which make the two games rather hard to compare.

I can't knock you for not liking the art style, some people dislike too much colour in there games :D
But on a serious note, if they hadn't changed the art style, i doubt the game would be getting as much attention as it is now.

Oh, what is it about cell shaded stuff you don't like, i have always assumed people dislike the bright colours in cell shading.

Cel shading usually has that strong black border. I dunno, but I love the style. It's one of the major highlights of Prince of Persia for me.

The new prince of persia was a stain compared to the previous trilogy.. Sands of time, Warrior Within and to a lesser extent three thrones - were masterpieces. The new one was garbage IMO.

The "censor" thing is from a headshot critical, i'd assume it's pretty 'gorey' or else gearbox wouldn't have censored it.

On a side note, i've already got this game preordered, there is a promotion through gamestop/EBGames that will net you a DL code for a set of guns with a different paint style than the known ones, but that's all i know personally, i don't know the types, stats, or even the looks.

Edit- there is another video that wasn't posted, that is about borderlands. Click here

Seems pretty cool, though it looks more action oriented than other FPS RPGs like Fallout 3 and STALKER games. I will certainly be looking into this game when it comes out, but I've actually got quite a few incredible games that I have yet to fully play through. ( GTA IV, Mass Effect, Prototype, Metroid Prime Trilogy, and Muramasa: The Demon Blade)

i was planning on starting this topic a little bit ago (with the same trailer haha)

but yea i think this game looks really badass, and i think the art style is awesome, im not a BIG fan of cel shading, but i think its pretty impressive that its all hand-drawn

figure i'd post this in this thread, but borderlands has officially gone Gold (puns aside), set dates for the US are: 20th for xbox360 and ps3, with the PC's date pushed back to the 26th, and worldwide the console and PC date (afaik) is the 30th of october.

Oooo, 8.8. Not quite as good as I expected, but I'll wait for a few more reviews to roll in.

I'll definitely get this game at launch on the net, the problem is I don't think I'll have time to play it much since I'm currently going through a ridiculously awesome mod for STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl right now and college is just devouring my free time.

I like the art style personally, and it LOOKS fun.. aside from the part where the girl character stole my name...

Though, i doubt I'd get this game anytime soon even if I did decide to, due to the fact that I am putting all my money towards getting Fallout 3 (I'm late, I know).
this sig is a lie

that giant monster-thing is called a rakk hive, and that's all the more i know, since i don't have the game yet, getting it monday when the PC version releases.

also "OMG THAT BITCH STOLE MY NAME!" what do you mean by that?
