Borderlands PS3 Co-op Issues


borderlands

Aside from Borderlands having the coolest weapon selection and quirky yet brilliant visuals and engrossing gameplay, oh and the coolest cover art ever! There appears to be one slight problem with the game. That “problem” is that the online co-op feature of the game is completely broken and I mean busted! Now this is not on a small scale either it’s happening to a lot of people. Now I won’t pay 120 dollars on a game (Australia) and have the multiplayer be so bad, especially in a game like Borderlands, it’s just not acceptable!

PS3 gamers and myself from all over the world are experiencing several game-breaking issues including a 30 minute freeze when joining a game, not having your friends show up on the games in game friends list and seriously laggy games and that’s if your lucky to even connect to anyone. In these modern times and the work that goes into making these games, I expected a lot better.

Considering the game is being sold on the promise of a seamless drop-in/drop-out co-op experience, gamers are really kicking off on the Gearbox forums. Its really frustrating and embarrassing on how developers can release a game with multiplayer which in this case being a big feature to the game. It’s like buying a car with no wheels!

Please Gearbox sort it out so we can appreciate the great game which Borderlands is.

    I got the co-op to work last night and it was a little laggy, but I wasnt suprized cuz my internet connection sucks anyhow. I didnt try it with more than one person yet… Its a great game and cant wait to play some more.

    I popped in the game quick to look around. I got as far as killing a couple bad guys and going into town.

    Two things:

    1) Claptrap approaches a building, and I guess I’m supposed to go in, but I can’t figure out how.

    2) I exited the game, then re-entered, and my character was the same, but I had to start at the beginning again, as if I just got off the bus! What’s up with that?

    this game is GREAT! exactly the FPS type of game i’ve been looking for. Its what I wished Fallout 3 was. the story is thin, unlike fallour, and its laggy. yes. but hopefully they’ll continue to work on it. I did notice last night that a friend on my friends list joined my game, so maybe they did fix it. anyways. we should have a borderlands game night soon.

    @Blackstaffer- I think i know what part you mean, its kinda confusing when you dont know what to look for. there’s somebody stuck in the building and you have to push a button to unlock the door. The button should look like a translucent green glowing thingy. follow the green diamond marker on ur map, it should point you there. (i think thats the first checkpoint btw, cuz that guy gives you your first mission. so maybe thats why u restarted on the bus) ::shrug:: hope that helps

    Henning Iam kinda confused but check the map and it should have a diamond looking thing that shows where to go…Oh wait, forget the door go around to the side of the building and there will be a big enterence there. There should be a doctor looking dude in there.

    I just bought this game yesterday. Its a good game but things kinda start off slow. The weapons are awsome though. Ive only played for a few ours, Ima level 10. its kinda challenging as well but nothing overwhelming. Its a good game all around but nothing great.
