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.

RedDeadLB1342d ago

1 is boring, trust me. 2 is better.

christocolus1342d ago


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.

GryestOfBluSkies1342d ago

i agree that 2 was better, but 1 was still awesome

UKmilitia1342d ago

i played 1 anbd it was good imo,but heard 2nd is better which i havent played so this is great for me also.

Neonridr1342d ago

well thanks for the advice guys.

NukaCola1342d ago

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

Toiletsteak1342d ago

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.

Lionalliance1342d ago

with all the DLC included, like a lot of it, hell yeah!

Xavior_Reigns1342d ago

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.

Toiletsteak1342d ago

But you also get all of the DLC for both.

Xavior_Reigns1342d ago

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.

showtimefolks1342d ago

Amen brother. I along with many also wanted the first game to be part of this collection
