Gearbox gave attendees at South Africa's rAge Expo some hands-on time with Borderlands, and the first of the resulting previews comes at us from LazyGamer.
The controls feel really great and are will be very familiar to anyone who has played any decent shooter in the last couple of years. On that same note the RPG elements of the game come into play in a really massive way. "Great", "pumped", "beautiful", "sharp", "good looking", and "Steven Seagal". What would a preview be without such terms?
I have not had a lot of experience with MMO games like World of Warcraft, so I didn't fully get the grasp of what (aggro) is and does. That is, until I was standing a little bit away from my team and started sniping at all of the monsters that they were fighting, thinking I could pick some off easily. It dawned on me that it was possibly not the greatest idea, as I saw all of the enemies look at me and then start rushing at me with a fury that even Steven Segal would be proud of.
