"Revenue from digitally delivered content grew 108% year-over-year and accounted for 20% of Non-GAAP net revenue, driven by offerings for the Borderlands franchise, particularly digital sales of Borderlands 2, the Grand Theft Auto franchise, the Sid Meier’s Civilization franchise, and Max Payne 3.

I loved Borderlands, but I am now no longer going to support the series. I would say Borderlands is everything that is wrong with DLC.

Why so, I feel they did everything okay
4 story DLCs with the season pass (Which states it is only story)
2 Characters which add the variety to the game (And are optional )
and 1 Level add on

Story DLC is decently priced, the characters where great and the one level add on was only $5 (and It included a third play-through with pearlescent weapons.)

Also, for everyone who thinks changing level is easy consider the following

For the player character - Yes
for All the weapons - Harder
For all the enemies to be properly leveled and deal the appropriate damage. - Super Hard

I know Bethesda gave their level expansion for free, but they then announced they where not making any more DLC the day after. And they do not need to scale weapons/armor.

*End rant =-)

Finally some good number where games are concerned. Those are some good numbers and I was happy to add to that count for Max Payne 3, NBA 2K13, Bioshock and of course Borderlands 2.

A shame the level of work put into Borderlands, didn't carry over to Aliens.
TH3KARMACHARGER  +   805d ago
I found myself that wile aliens was most certainly a disappointing game, it was a decent extension to the aliens story line and I fell that it just lacked in the graphics/AI department.

But that is just my opinion.
