If I was the kinda person who actually paid for games I might consider playing it.
GOTY addition has been like, $3 on steam during sales...
it seems to me that sniper rifles were significantly underpowered in Borderlands 1 even compared to many other FPS games I've played.
You could get like, +800% crit dmg with the right gear in BLs on top of the +50-2900% dmg from depending on enemy. Just need to gear right. As Markus says, "A Sniper without a Sniper COM is just a guy with a gun."
I've been playing Fallout: New Vegas for the first time recently. This game is fun! I did not know this. Of course as I say this I'm anticipating a whole lot of, 'that game sux, is not fun', so I probably just ruined it for myself. Damn.
I love NV! I'm actually playing it again atm with the Project Nevada (more FPSish) mod and a ton of add on weapons.
'shotgun' type revolver that did obscene damage with the skill bonuses you could put on it and would one-shot practically anything.
The problem is that since the individual shots are low powered, they don't do as well against armor. High dmg/low clip/scoped pestilent defiler was definitely the way to go with revolvers. Particularly with fast hands and gun crazy.
