In the distant future, several colonization ships journey to Pandora, a planet on the edge of the galaxy. The colonists are drawn to the planet in search of a better life and the prospect of striking it rich by claiming the vast deposits of mineral resources rumored to be there. After finally arriving, the colonists discover that the planet is barren of anything of significant value other than deteriorated alien ruins scattered across the land. Those who can afford to do so leave Pandora, and those who remain revolve around chaos and lawlessness. Some of the settlers seek to get rich quick by discovering alien technology, but most others are just trying to survive. After seven Earth years, Pandora's orbit brings it to the transition from winter to spring, and many horrifying creatures emerge from hibernation.
A beacon of hope for the remaining colonists emerges in the form of a mysterious vault carved in the side of a mountain. This vault is said to contain vast stores of alien technology and secrets. However, the people who discovered the vault were completely wiped out by some sort of protective force, and the only evidence of their discovery is a scattered radio transmission proclaiming the vault's majesty, but not its location.

Borderlands features four player online cooperative play, which allows players to join and leave games whenever they want to, along with other single-player and multiplayer modes, and a very large amount of weapons. Players can choose from four different playable characters who each have their own unique abilities and skill trees. In addition, players may have access to customizable vehicles for "vehicular combat" and will also be able to customize their pre-selected character. Defeated enemies will sometimes drop equipment, which is then available for players to pick up. (from wiki)
Borderlands is one of the games that I've been eagerly waiting to be released. I had wanted to get it for the PC because I already knew a few people getting it for PC, but decided that my laptop was not good enough to run the game at satisfactory settings. So I just got home from Gamestop about 30 minutes ago with the 360 version of Borderlands in hand. What I really want to know and the reason I started this thread is I want to know who has this for 360 to see if we can do some Co-Op. I'd really like to do some, but don't know anyone who owns/will own this game for 360. Let me know and maybe we can get some co-op going. I'm probably gonna try playing Lilith, then maybe play it again as Mordecai after that, but Lilith for now.
