Game Idealist takes a look as to whether or not Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is worth purchasing on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Yup. I never played the previous games so this is a good deal for me.
I was going to say the same thing. I haven't played any entry in the Borderlands series. I would have preferred 1 & 2 in the package instead, but oh well. Definitely considering it.
1 is boring, trust me. 2 is better.
@Neonridr i was bummed out at first but after reading reviews and talking to a few friends who have played all the games i think i can do without the first, aint saying it isn't good but its like the weakest of all the entries according to those i've spoken to.
i agree that 2 was better, but 1 was still awesome
i played 1 anbd it was good imo,but heard 2nd is better which i havent played so this is great for me also.
well thanks for the advice guys.
1 is awesome. 2 is 10x even more awesome. Also 2 covers a lot in the first one if you missed out on it, but it's not wort skipping if you can play it. Borderlands is a stellar series.
Make sure you play with a buddy. Playing solo or with strangers is ok, but the game shines when playing with a buddy or family member.
Local coop is my main selling point.
Yes and no. For me personally the first borderlands with its next to nothing story was better a game. It actually rewarded you playing with loot very few hours that felt like you had fun and got awesome loot in return Borderlands 2 was improved but given an mmo feel of grind for maybe good loot And don't get me wrong I love borderlands and will buy this collection but Damm if it had the first game also Than an instant buy I have a feeling we will get original borderlands too for next gen. GEarbox software are Greedy
I don't see that happening, their focus is on Borderlands 3 now
Damn right it is, i love me so Borderlands plus i never got the chance to play the pre-sequel, so to me it is an added bonus that i get Borderlands 2.
with all the DLC included, like a lot of it, hell yeah!
If you haven't played them before sure, but if you have its up to you. Personally I'd wait for a price drop, especially since it doesn't include Borderlands 1.
But you also get all of the DLC for both.
I know and that's a hell of a deal if you missed both. I only missed the presequel because it was obvious it'll release on PS4 & XBO. For me the deal breaker is as I stated - it doesn't include BL1. Besides I'm looking forward to The Order & BloodBorne along with almost getting the platinum in Dragon Age Inquisition.
Amen brother. I along with many also wanted the first game to be part of this collection
Does anyone know if this will also come out in digital format on the PSN Store?
it isnt announced but it will come 100% im sure of it.
It is mandatory that every PS4 game has a PSN release too. If there is an exception (like Persona 4 Arena region lock on PS3) I guess Sony will be very clear about it, otherwise, you don't have to worry.
Borderlands 2 is great, but never played the pre sequel. I think this collection is good value. It's way better value than the "definitive" edition remasters (looking at you Square Enix).
I've played the games on other platforms and even though I do not own a PS4 or an Xbox One yet, I will buy it when I do get one of the two systems. I'm kind of crazy, I bought the Mass Effect Trilogy on PC and PS3--same with Borderlands 1 + 2, so why not?
Being able to transfer your save file from BL2 is a huge plus for me on this one, i physically couldnt have started that one again from scratch. I also didn't pick up the presequel cause i knew it would be coming to the new gen.
I'll get it. I never played Pre-Sequel, and I certainly wouldn't mind running through Borderlands 2 again.
same for me ! I even can start a new B2 game because i never played this psycho class :D
So many good memories of playing thru Borderlands 2. I really liked the story and the new characters. The graphics were so colorful and it was just an all around great game experience for me just like the first one. Never got the pre sequel so this will be the first time I play it and I am sure I will like it as well. All in all this is a great collection with all the dlc and I hope they do an official remaster of the first one and include all the dlc for that as well.
I can't support the conniving Gearbox Software. "Gearbox's Randy Pitchford was very clear that Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel won't be coming to next-gen consoles. Here's why:" http://www.polygon.com/2014... "One hundred percent of the budget and the investment and the resources and the talent that have been invested into [last gen release.] None of the investment has gone towards ... new platforms" YEAH BS! It's awfully convenient to confidently say one thing that'll boost product's sales, then double back on it once THAT will boost your sales. http://cdn.meme.am/instance...
Yeah. I mean it's not as if they're a business right? Would you not want to maximise your profits if you were head of a company? Buy Borderlands for the talented, dedicated people who work hard on it because it's their passion, not the suits at the top.
.. cause businesses has never profited from having suits with integrity, and strong customer rapport.
Split-screen sold me. I bought a projector recently, so I'm all over that split-screen again.
I'll pick it up when it goes on sale. Dropped well over 100 hours into Borderlands 2 and the DLC. Never played the pre sequel
Yes. Didn't play The Presequel or any of the dlc for 2 so looking forward to that
For me it's all gonna depend on what the DF tech analysis says.
not at $60. $35 yes
