Borderlands - Preview @ VideoGamer

VideoGamer takes a look at Borderlands from a viewing at Leipzig:

Being an FPS crossed with an RPG Borderlands features levelling, so as you progress through the game you'll increase your stats as you would in an RPG like World of Warcraft or Final Fantasy. After taking out the Scags our Gearbox reps each levelled up. Throughout the game you'll also come across upgrade skill stations, allowing you to upgrade your skills. We've only seen a tiny portion of what the game has to offer, but it certainly seems like it'll appeal to FPS and RPG fans alike. For example, the guns in the game are generated using some tech Gearbox developed effectively giving the game hundreds of thousands of gun types. So, as the guys pointed out as they took down bandits in the Iridium Mines, you'll pick up different dropped weapons during your game than a friend will in his. Weapons vary from region to region, so you'll get hold of similar makes, but exact stats and abilities will vary.
