I am preemptively starting this thread, as my pre-purchase on Steam awaits.

Anyone playing on PC? Friend Steerpike!

A clever lawyer friend tricked me into picking his wife and her (pretty, blonde, intelligent, and unfortunately taken) friend at the train station and returning them to his house. Speciific conversation:

ME: Hello?

PETE: Mattronicus!

ME: Petry!

|||||||||||||||||||||||||

Interlude: 30 minutes chatting

5 minutes about Borderlands

|||||||||||||||||||||||||

Me: …last week for PS3 and 360, but next Monday for PC.

PETE: SO you want to play it… tonight?

ME: I told you, dude, I bought it for PC – not till monday.

PETE: I could buy it for Xbox. And I know it's a little late (it was 7:45pm), but it might be fun. I grab it, you shoot out here, we play into the wee hours.

ME: That sounds great. I'll get ready right now!

PETE: Can you do me a favor?

ME: Sure.

PETE: Can you pick up a package in Ann Arbor before you head out here?

ME: Sure.

<PAUSE>

PETE: Thank you so much. The package is at the train station.

ME:Ooooo….kay…..

<PAUSE>

PETE: The package is in fact my wife.

ME: Jennifer.

PETE: yes. And her friend Laura. Don't worry, though, I'm on my way to buy Borderlands right now. See you soon! Bring a controller!

--------------------------------------------------------------

The key message here being, of course, that for some reason Pete was hesitant to call me up and say "Hey Matty, Jen's trapped at the AA Train Station with her friend Laura, there's a wrath-of-god thunderstorm pouring on us, you have 4-wheel drive, any possiblilty you could pick them up and come out here - we'll eat, we'll hang out, we'll game - rather than me just driving there and back?"

I would have said yes under these circumstances. But it was so much more clever, so much more lawyer - for my best friend to bait me with a game and then hand out the objectives. It was kind of like a bad JRPG, when you think about it.

----------------------------------------------------------------

And so begun – after the travel, dinner, and socializing, Pete's and my time with Borderlands, in splitscreen on the 360. Verdict? Too early to tell, but we did play from about 9:30pm to about 6:00am. So far so good. I look forward to providing more views of the game playing by my lonesome.

Just thought I'd share. :)

All lawyers use trickery to get what they want/need. It's much more socially acceptable. [Image Can Not Be Found]

Besides, I find it infinitely humorous that he tricked you into doing his bidding. Remember: Lawyers = evil; even when they're your friends and/or family. Of course, I won't mention that I've learned from their trickery to get out of jury duty. [Image Can Not Be Found]

Okay, Borderlands.

I'm playing as Mordecai the sniper, PC, and I just wrapped up the "Kill Bonehead" mission. Who's with me?

I'm having a BLAST playing Borderlands--and I haven't even tried the online version.  This is much closer to what Fallout 3 should have been.  Good lord it's 1:15 in the morning.  When was the last time a game kept me up this late?  Years and years.

When a friend's son graduated from law school (summa cum-laude), I gifted him with a lovely wooden box for his office desk... in which to keep his soul. When he wrote thanking me for the gift, he mentioned that he couldn't decide if he should use it for his soul or paperclips as it was too small for both. [Image Can Not Be Found]

Did anyone who started Borderlands here stick with it? I got it for the 360, I think the week it came out, and I played it once or twice and have since not returned. I guess my brain drew for it the short straw as far as my free-gaming-time-priorities go. Nothing against the game, there are just so darned many in my pile.

If you did finish it, what were your thoughts?

Pete and I had a good time playing, but I lost interest as soon as I began the single player campaign. There just wasn't much there there.
