@jarmahead: I've got a i3, 8GBs of DDR3 Ram, and a GeForce GTX 550 Ti. Is that good enough? It is a five year old game. I have the graphics at max right now. Also, how would I enable Anti-Aliasing? I think I saw something about disabling the line border in the config files but nothing about AA in there.

As for the new weapons, you're saying I should like equip new ones when I get them and try them out and don't go solely by the stats? I have noticed that I don't care too much for shotguns and assault rifles. I prefer having an SMG for close up and sniper rifle for long range.

@rowr: I haven't had any real trouble with the menu and the PC controls. The sorting being mapped to PageUp and PageDown are the only things. I can tell that the interface wasn't created with PC controls in mind but it's still decent to me. What is it that bothers you about it?

@crithon: I'm writing about the game, not making videos. I'm writing multiple impressions posts to be comprehensive, get input from readers, and also keep notes on my opinion as it changes and forms.

@slag: That's not a bad idea. I could call it something else to show that this is something other than a typical review. Like a comprehensive overview or complete critique or something.

@slag: That's exactly my problem with reviews. They're buying advice and not an actual critique of the game. By that definition, I would prefer someone spend a good amount of time on a game, but not complete it and just tell me if it's good enough to spend $60 on. I understand they can't get to the end game stuff because they're on a time limit but there's no alternative that does. I want to write a review that'll last. That's more comprehensive.

I do plan to write other stuff while I play Borderlands because this is an experiment and I'm going to take my time. In the future, if this goes well, I'll apply this format to new games once I've figured out how to do this efficiently and therefore, can be more valuable.

Thank you so much for all the feedback! I've taken all of your comments and I'll be writing a follow-up post soon.

@shagge: You really think that'll work? If I'm getting angry, I'm not going to be in the mood to come up with funny insults.

@shindig: That's an interesting point. I've played Demon's Souls and although I stopped because it stressed me out and made me anxious, I never got mad because I knew it was supposed to be a very hard game.

@slag: I haven't heard of Teslagrad. What's the art style like? The metroidvania style sounds cool but what's the aesthetic? Is it sci-fi like Metroid, gothic like Castlevania, or something else like the mexican visuals of Guacamelee?
