Sign me up @ Gearbox.

“We’ve got an arsenal of weapons — from authentic WW2 small arms to futuristic guns that inspired Borderlands to an actual Pulse Rifle from Aliens that fires .45 caliber ammunition.

We’ve got a gun range across the street from our studio. Colonel John Antal, Gearbox Software’s military advisor and historian, takes groups of us as often as we want to shoot.”

I have the Brothers in Arms games (I felt like I was in Normandy) if they do their story well like crysis 2 it will be a great game.
