Borderlands 2 content previously exclusive to certain retailers and collector's editions is now available to everyone, for a price. The Creature Slaughter Dome will allow players to compete in a bonus Circle of Slaughter challenge located at the Wildlife Exploitation Reserve. The Circle of Slaughter challenges have been around since the first Borderlands. Players must face waves of progressively more difficult enemies in an enclosed arena. It's basically a survivor mode.
Borderlands 2 will be in our living rooms in just four days. It's time to say farewell to Borderlands, and hello to the new hotness that is Borderlands 2. To do so, we're hosting two co-op nights. As we've mentioned before, we're playing Borderlands tonight, starting at 9 PM Eastern, on all platforms (PC, Xbox 360, and PS3). Head on over to the event thread for more details. Let's give Borderlands the farewell party it deserves.
It’s been a tough few weeks for me. After losing my job last week, I was having trouble focusing on what I should be doing next with my career. Obviously it’s all about finding my next job, but times are tight and I've been struggling to have things "work out". Luckily, Co-Optimus has been keeping me busy with work while I job hunt. Needless to say, I’ve been doing a bunch of gaming, which has also lead me to falling in love with a series that I had previously chosen to ignore.
Some iconic Borderlands characters are getting the action figure treatment. Announced some time ago, the ClapTrap and Psycho Bandit action figures are now set to launch in May and June, respectively. These poseable collectibles are being manufactured by NECA, who have also made figures for other co-op games, including Gears of War, Army of Two, and Bulletstorm.
Borderlands, a Co-Optimus favorite, is on sale. Amazon.com has the Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition for 50% off today only. The Borderlands GOTY edition normally goes for $39.99, but now you can pick it up for twenty bucks. Each DLC of Borderlands was originally $10 when first released, so frivolous gamers could have easily spent $100 dollars on the game and all of the DLC together. Boy, you sure were smart to wait for the price to drop! Now you can pick up Borderlands, The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned, Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot, The Secret Armory of General Knoxx, and Claptrap's New Robot Revolution, all for $20.00. You can read our impressions of each linked DLC. For $20 dollars this is an absolute steal.
In a recent interview with NowGamer.com Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford alluded to even more content for the 4 player shoot-and-loot Borderlands franchise. Whether or not the new content is even more DLC or a proper sequel remains to be determined. In the interview, Pitchford acknowledges that the Borderlands team originally planned for the The Secret Armory of General Knoxx to be the last piece of DLC, which was then followed up by last September's Claptrap's New Robot Revolution.
There's a boat-load of new content for PlayStation Plus subscribers in January and February. One of the new items is a full game trial of Borderlands, still one of the best co-op games around. There are a ton of other deals and sales. If you take advantage of all the savings it looks as if the Plus membership would almost pay for itself in just a few months. If you sign up by Groundhog's Day (February 2nd, for those of you not dependent on archaic seasonal predictions) you can get 15 months for the price of 12. What are you waiting for? As usual, non-paying PlayStation Network users will get nothing and like it.
Mac users, get ready for a trip to Pandora. And I don't mean some preachy, three hour long lecture about why indigenous people are better than you. I'm talking about the good Pandora, the one from Borderlands, where you are encouraged to kill the native wildlife.
Yes, you read that right. This is one of those rare occasions, possibly the first and last occasion, that we give you our impressions on a strategy guide. In this case it is the hardback-bound, 575 page tome that is the Borderlands Game of the Year Edition Guide.
Good news everyone! As you have probably noticed, we're big fans of the 4 player co-op game, Borderlands. The role-playing-shooter from Gearbox Studios has had its share of DLC love in the past year, including September's Claptrap's New Robot Revolution. As much fun as the new downloadable content is, observant gamers who had hit the level cap noticed that something was amiss. Mainly that their levels were still firmly capped.
The eagerly awaited free Borderlands patch is going through final approval right now, and it should be up in November. Gearbox Software is having a giant fall season, including the release of Claptrap's New Robot Revolution, the Borderlands Game of the Year Edition, huge sales on their DLC, Duke Nukem Forever news, and a co-op night with us.
Last Thursday we played Borderlands and its DLC for our monthly Xbox Live Co-Op Night. We were lucky enough to be joined by Mikey Neumann, Creative Director at Gearbox Software. Throughout the night we invited members of the community in to join our romp through Pandora as we took on Claptraps, Midgets, and plenty of other baddies.
You may be looking at that headline and thinking to yourself, "Didn't I just read an awesome article titled: Duke Nukem Forever Playable Demo Available Via Borderlands GOTY Edition about a week and a half ago?" You would be right. You may also notice some differences in the title of this awesome article. It seems that Duke Nukem Forever First Access Club passes are showing up on Steam accounts for those of you who bought Borderlands before the GOTY edition was available.
Gearbox have just released a special launch trailer for Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition showcasing the comedic writing that's prevalent throughout the series. The four minute long trailer brings back your favorite characters from the game and DLC with some shocking revelations.
This month we're heading back to Borderlands with a special focus on the DLC and the GOTY Edition. What's more? We have three quality headsets to give away provided by SteelSeries. Read on to find out how to join up - and how you can win a set of cans!
