Scrawl: "What’s this? GameStop’s gotten up an item listing for a “Borderlands GOTY Official Strategy Guide” slated to release in September today."
that would be great,the game and all the dlc for something like $40 would really be nice for those that missed out.
dammit, and I just bought Borderlands and the DLC!
I just was at Gamestop today and my wife said we should get borderlands to play together. I platinumed this, but I haven't gotten the DLC cause I only borrowed it from a friend. So I think I'm going to pick this up. This is one game I am aching for a sequel.
Yeah I rented this from Gamefly and played the hell out of it. Incredible game. I never bought a copy because after the first 2 DLC packs I thought to myself that it's one of those games that's gonna get a GOTY edition with all the DLC already in there and it would make more sense to wait for that. Good call I guess cause if this is true I will be able to play it again and it will be like a new game with all the added stuff.
i would want this why?
That sux. I was thinking about picking it up again for the 360. It's just one of those games you can't get enough of. I only bought the zombie Island DLC so I might pick this up again.
Don't you have to win a GOTY, to have a GOTY edition? Did they make a Borderlands gaming magazine just to give themselves GOTY??? Edit: Seems Bluemaster beat me to it!
That sucks. It's a good game for co-op but deathmatch doesnt work as well as i want it too since we all have insanely powerful weapons that can kill in one hit.
Haha $40? It'll be $60 ($70 here).
GameFly has it for 29.99 for members, 26.99 for me :)
yea i know how they work, but one can hope
I was waiting for this to be announced :) Borderlands was great
This is just what I've been waiting for, Borderlands with DLC included as well as being a GoTY edition...nice. Hoping for the best!
i still havent bought this game so its good news for me
Dude you're missing a lot. This game was phenomenal.
same here i'll get this if it came out
I just picked it up tonight to see what all the hypes about. Looks like alot of fun.
Ya know whats weird alot of these games that get GOTY versions were never game of the year i never understood why that did that . hmmmmm
Nah.. it's bizarre. Maybe they're hoping people think... Oooooh game of the year, must be good.
No, they do it when they win a GOTY award from a journalistic website. Borderlands won one, GOTY on XBOX, from a relatively crappy website. So basically... yeah. They also use stuff like 'action game of the year' and to warrant the game of the year edition. However in ever case I've seen, there has actually been a GOTY award, awarded to them. Even if it is from an obscure source.
It's nice getting DLC on the bluray disc. Like Fallout GOTY. Games buggy, but all the content is available in one setting. Knowing Editions come out like this make me want to wait for it all to come at once. I am still waiting for the Dragon Age GOTY Edition. I can't see myself spending that much on DLC. I'll get it all at once for cheaper.
I thought that they might do that as in win some random award then flaunt it guess i was right
I'll be pissed if the fourth DLC is only available via GOTY Edition.
I sold this today. I'd be happy to buy it again if it came with something extra. And I mean, extra on top of the DLCs. I have those.
Why is there still no Uncharted 2 GOTY edition?
the original edition was also the goty edition
Cause it's not game of the year.
I believe UC2 won more GOTY awards then most. VGAs http://n4g.com/news/443072/...
I really didn't think this game was good at all, in fact I completely agreed with the Zero Punctuation review because it was just so dull and shallow. I can see why people would enjoy it for the shooting but to me it felt really repetative. Idk, Borderlands is one of my top gaming peeves because I disliked it so much. Just my opinion though
Yeah, you kind of have to be a loot whore to enjoy to the fullest, and also have to play with others to enjoy it even more.
I'm not saying that's a bad thing. Borderlands was my most played game of the year actually, and it's the most fun I've had in a long time.
The developers ignored storytelling, thy sold millions to gamers who love just doing "fun stuff", but they also missed out on gamers who love good storytelling. RDR was a game that had both, I would finish a mission and then go hunting wolves, waste a day trying to clean out a poker table, another trying to figure the odds in Liars Dice. This stuff could have gotten old real quick but the story kept me coming back for more.
What's wrong with just pure fun? Does every game need an engaging story to be good? No one went into borderlands thinking "wow, this story seems really interesting". It's a cell shaded diablo fps, and that's what was expected. Sure Red Dead did it, but it was in development for like 5 years and didn't have that much of a budget to it compared to Red Dead.
Agree, this game felt incomplete, and the only fun factor I found was playing with other online. Single player was boring, and I never did invest in the add-ons. But I may pick this title up with the extras just to play the new stuff, but of course with other online. Will be giving away my old copy to a friend.
Already got Borderlands and all the DLC for $20. Thanks Steam!
If they make a GOTY ed on steam I'm in, not paying retails like console suckers...
You disagree that I will pay less than retail price like console owners will? You must be brain-dead to disagree with that statement.
Amazing Game - tweakingly addictive....
i had all the achievements accept the dlc lol. that's was the only game i played for 9 days lol.
Not bad, its good to see this game did better then Pachter thought it would. Though i knew he was wrong in the first place. To bad ive already purchased this game, otherwise id have to buy this collection. Its a great game, here hopeing to an announcement of #2 soon.
I hated this game.
this game has so much replay value. Easily worth whatever they charge for it. Addicting, challenging, fun, co-op, awesome unique weapons the likes of you won't see in any game.
I haven't had a chance to play this game yet, hopefully I can pick up the GOTY version.
fuck you all; I put 90 dollars into this game with the additional dlc...And now people get to saunter along and get the whole thing for $40, plus the new unnamed dlc for free?! That new dlc better be free for me...I don't really feel like spending 100 dollars on a game that other people are getting for less than the cost of a retail game
they also are waiting a full year to play what you already played months and months ago. Things lose value over time, all games do. Oblivion and Fallout 3 did the same thing. I fully Expect Mass Effect 2 and Dragon Age to do this as well at some point. Smart for the company and for the people who are willing to wait to pick up games later. People who want to play things day 1 pay more, it isn't a new thing. I paid my $90 already and got my money's worth out of the game on day 1 for every portion, because it was worth it to me at the time. The game is a ton of fun and I am not going to begrudge people buying it now because it wasn't worth it to them then. It is a great game and if more people get into it this way, Gearbox makes more money, and Borderlands 2 (Borderworlds) will be better for it.
"plus the new unnamed dlc for free?!" This is my main problem..
