It must be time for a post about Borderlands.
I don't usually play first-person shooters. But after all the raving on Screen Play I decided to give Borderlands a go. Besides, add some character classes, levels and a talent tree and I'm much more in my comfort zone.
I have the PS3 version, for one simple reason: split-screen co-op. Yelling between rooms just isn't the same as settling down with my partner on the couch. What this actually involved, of course, was a romantic evening of him getting shot and me running around saving his arse. Plus glaring at him whenever he started to pick up a hick accent.
Okay, that's a slight exaggeration, but snipers do seem to die a bit.
