Picking through the available items is a bit of a mess, seeing as how Borderlands and its brothers have been repackaged and re-released multiple times over the past several years. To start, there's the Borderlands Triple Pack, which has the three base games along with expansions for the original. Then we have Borderlands GOTY Borderlands 2, which has the first two games along with the four expansions for the original. And let's not forget Borderlands 2 Game of the Year, which is the second game packaged with all nine expansions.

Borderlands 2 and Pre-Sequel Heading to Nvidia Shield Tablet and TVJohn Bardinelli

Eagle eyed readers will know that Pre-Sequel was released for Shield TV earlier this year. The port brought just about everything from the console/PC version to the set top device, complete with moderately limited co-op. Borderlands 2 will get the same treatment, and even though Nvidia didn't specifically say "it'll have co-op", we're assuming that's a given. Bringing both games to the Shield Tablet requires a bit more work, as it packs a little less oomph than its TV-tethered brother. No word on if or how co-op would work on a handheld device, but we're guessing two player local is the best we can hope for.

It may be a two year old game, but Pre-Sequel's got a lot of love left to give. It's seen a release on previous gen consoles as well as PC, yet this version doesn't quite fit either of those categories. It's technically an Android game, but you have to have an Nvidia Shield TV box in order to play. Not an Nvidia Shield Tablet or that Nvidia clamshell handheld thingy, just the TV device. If you've got the hardware, Pre-Sequel is easily the beefiest game you can download. It currently sells for a respectable $14.99 and requires the controller to play.

The Evolve Ultimate Edition includes the base game (duh), along with both hunting season passes and the monster expansion pack. It's currently available on Xbox One and PS4 for a hair under $60. In the Borderlands camp, the all three titles are being stuffed together, complete with every piece of DLC and extra character pack, all in one collection. It's scheduled to hit Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on November 17 for around %50. Yes, it's like the Handsome Collection but with Borderlands 1 and only for previous-gen consoles.

In the time honored tradition of launch trailers, Gearbox has released a launch trailer for The Handsome Collection detailing each and every new feature or improvement over previous versions of the game. Likewise in the time honored tradition of launch trailers, they've spliced up some gameplay footage with real life video, much to my shocking embarrassment.

Containing both Borderlands 2 and the more recent Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, as well as all DLC's included for each title, The Handsome Collection is the shaping up to be one the best Borderlands experiences to date. Players who owned either the PlayStation 3 and/or Xbox 360 versions of the game will also be given the opportunity to transfer their game saves over, and here's how!

While she's no Moxxie, Sir Hammerlock's sister Aurelia does have a few good qualities to speak of. Her action skill, Cold as Ice, lets her toss out a Frost Diadem Shard that homes in in enemies and deals them constant damage. If the foe dies, the shard moves on to the next enemy, and so on. Great for bugs, not so great for the big stuff.

Both games in The Handsome Collection come with a ton of DLC, character additions, headhunter packs and add-on content. The purchase even includes a season pass for Pre-Sequel, netting you new content in the future. And if you've already logged approximately 482 hours in the borderlands universe (that's a random number in no way related to my own playing time), you can transfer your saves from previous generation systems, PS3/Vita to PS4 and Xbox 360 to Xbox One.

Everything scales up according to your level for the new playthrough, including enemies, bosses and that tasty, tasty loot. All you have to do is complete True Vault Hunter Mode and reach level 50, then reset your progress from the main menu. Gearbox detailed some of the numbers for UVHM on a recent blog post:

Released in early November, the Handsome Jack pack is the first of four scheduled pieces of DLC planned for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. If you bought the Season Pass this is the first chunk of that, otherwise you'll need to nab it separately. Next on the release list are things like a campaign add-on, another character, a level cap increase, and some extra items to fool around with. Fingers crossed for a raid boss stuffed somewhere in there, too.
