I was thinking of picking this up. Probably won't do it at full price but when the first cut hits I'll be on board.

I did not really remember that problem. Of course i used weapons suited for there task. Weapons in Fallout 3 have different levels of accuracy. Sniper Rifle is extremely accurate wile a Assault rifle is less so. That i do not see as a weakness but rather as relative accurate to how it is in real life. You will not use your typical SMG over long range but a rifle is a weapon suited for that task.

but then again i tend to use VATS a lot in the game and sneak a lot. Maybe the game is just suited for my playing style. (Also like going HtH)

i think its more about the large array of weapons that all have difrent fire speeds and whatever tagged on with special abilities like fire and poison ect.
and on top of that damage numbers flying out of your enemies can be very satisfying

im getting it for the diabloness and the coop though...and because i need a new game >.>

There's a sniping mod that at least makes the sniping better in Fallout. Otherwise, whenever you fired the gun it was like the game rolled a die to see if you hit... even if the enemy was an inch away from your face with his back turned. And you'd still miss sometimes.


**EDIT**
I bought Borderlands.

Then you must have pre-ordered, right?

Or does it just come out on steam late?

Did ANYONE buy it on the xbox? Or am I screwed?
My computer can handle it just fine (i7 Core), but I just like playing games more on the console. I don't know why.

Then you must have pre-ordered, right?

Or does it just come out on steam late?

"Pre-ordering a digital copy of Gearbox Studios’ Borderlands through Steam is an easy way to knock a few bucks off the purchase. Instead of dishing out about 50 hard-earned bones, eager reservers can steal the title at 45 bones."

No it's not out for the PC yet, it's a per order thing.

Anyway, I've been playing, and it's been a lot of fun. I found a shotgun with a scope on it  :D

If i was buying it i would buy it for the PC. Somewhat safe bet is that any game coming out of the PC, especially in a PC dominating genera like FPS or RTS, will have more follower on our forum on that platform.

No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.
