Introduction



Let's Play Borderlands

Borderlands was developed by Gearbox Software and published by 2K Games in 2009. It combined all the fun and thrill of a non-serious First Person Shooter with some very light RPG elements. Borderlands was a pretty big hit, but not to the level of the hard core FPS' such as Call of Duty. Borderlands garnered mostly favorable reviews from game critics, with an average GameRankings score of 85.84% for Xbox 360 and 83.76% for PlayStation 3 and Metacritic score of 84 and 83 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 respectively. Borderlands could be played through single player or put online and played co-op in lobbies with up to 4 players per game.

The core of borderlands is strict first person shooter. See the bad guy, kill the bad guy. What's unique about the game is all the little things put on top of that. The voice acting, the world, the unique art style, all lend a very unique feel to Borderlands that really makes it stand out. Throw on top of that the sense of character progression, the idea that your guy is more than a walking gun and inventory backpack, that you have skills and builds that are unique to your character add on to Borderlands appeal. The cherry on top of it all is of course the guns. Want a sniper rifle that shoots bullets made of lightning? Check. Shotgun that shoots mini-rockets? Check. Revolvers that fires shotgun shells? Check. How about a bird that melts people into piles of acid? Oh yeah, Borderlands has that.

This LP: The Cast, and Crew

So we in the Fail Pile decided to do this LP all multiplayer. It was a terrible idea, but that is what the Pile is for. The team consists of Myself, Chunky, Felime Torlon, and Shinx. We will each be playing a different character class and rotating the point of views to give the audience a chance to see the game through each of the characters eyes and how they play through the game differently than each other.
We'll be going through one full play-through and the downloadable content. There is a play-through 2 mode, but it just the same thing made harder. Think Diablo 2 and its multiple levels if you need an example.


Oh Jesus Christ Jade. Another LP? What's Going To Go Wrong Now?

A lot. Seriously. Just look at my avatar. That's because this was going to start a month ago and then my computer died. It's not even really fixed. I never figured out what the problem was or what I did to make it work again. Hell, on top of that, just watch the first video. The first words I say are horribly broken and distorted because my computer was in the process of dying as the first batch of videos were being recorded. On top of that Felime is so gay he records at terrible resolutions.


That's It, I'm Out Of Here!

Things do get fixed. Borderlands is a pain to record and takes some serious hardware to run and record at the same time. Felime is also pretty gay but we can't fix that. We even sent him to one of those 'pray the gay away' church camps. Honestly though, I wouldn't be posting it if I didn't think it would be worth watching. Most of you know how I run with LP's anyway. Posting anything that isn't a blue screen of death is progress for me!


So What Can The Viewers Expect?

This isn't a newbie friendly LP, by which I mean we are not going to spend a lot of time talking about the game mechanics, the artistic design, the inner workings of the game, character builds and strategies, and why my flaming pistol of +3 is better than anything Felime ever gets his hands on.

This is a social LP. It is 3 friends and 1 giant spiteful dick playing a four player co-op game of Borderlands. It's going to be entertaining, full of failure, and not very informative. There will be swearing, yelling, gunfire, and cockfaggery. Just a heads up going in. Also there will be horrible resolution rates whenever Felime records. Felime is poor and his monitor isn't even 1200 by 1024.


And if it makes anyone feel better Guava is helping me out with GIMP too.
