I've got to agree with the complaints about Borderlands. I'm only about halfway through I think, but it seems like a game with the potential to be great if they'd just spent the time to fix the infuriatingly bad interface. Why do some windows let you mouse-scroll (sort of, it only works when you're at the top or bottom row of items), while others make you use pgup/pgdn or arrow keys? WTF? Pretty much everything about the inventory and buy/sell screens is convoluted, consolized crap.

I hate the vehicle handling too. Why not just use the a and d keys for turning like any other game and let us look around with the mouse, like any other game? It's not like there isn't a pretty good consensus on the basics of vehicle handling for the PC. If you're going to do it differently, you'd better have a good reason and it had better work at least as well. They apparently have neither.

Ok, now that I got all that out, I do still like the game. So far it's been pretty fun. Playing as hunter right now and it's pretty cool. Easy to get overrun by skags, especially the big ones, if you don't have some pretty serious weapons though. Kind of wish the hunter had a few other tricks to protect himself before he starts shooting. Like prox or remote mines or something. You know that they're going to swarm you once you take the first shot, often from multiple directions. A little preparation would seem to be in order. Still, sniping is fun, and even the other weapons like SMGs and pistols are cool for that close-in work.

Anyone know if the game is moddable?
