Borderlands is the most fun I've had in a co-op game in years. The main game for 10 bucks is a steal, while the DLC at 10 for the set is a great deal too. Sure, you COULD skip Moxxi's, but for 3 bucks you can't really go wrong. The bank is worth 3 bucks alone and if you play the arena thing once it was a cheap 2 hours. (The arena takes longer than that to finish, but if you play it only once and don't want to do it more it was still a good deal.)

The 5 limit on the one DLC doesn't really bug me. I plan to play it through to completion and then...not play it. If I get all hot and bothered I'll just grab the crack.

Good thing I didn't pay $10 for Moxxi. Island of Doctor Ned is not bad. I might have more fun if I played as a class other than sniper. I haven't finished the Armory yet, but it seems the best out of the three.

Never heard of Dogfighter - it any good? Is the SP decent at all, or just a prep for multi?

Thanks!

This is how you sell PC games. Fuck ebay, amazon, and retail.

Waiting a year after release and then having brief competition undercuts?

I prefer buying my games while they are still relevant.

Relevant to what/whom? I'm just looking for cheap fun.

I heard a lot of things about Borderlands that I didn't like when it first launched. It definetly wasn't worth full price in my opinion. It's cheap now, I'll try it out.

Finally, been waiting for it to go on sale for ages and now I can finally play me some Borederlands!

Seconded...

And would have missed it had a friend not told me about it today... Bought the four pack for $30... and trying to find which 2 friends are most... worthy : )

Thinking about the DLC too... $10 for all three isn't horrible... Though if they don't add up to the game, then the value is already lower... If the stash was shared across chars, I'd get that one... Haven't looked at the info for them all though... The thread from the other day mentioned one of three was great... IIRC...

Secret Armory of General Knoxx is fantastic. Truly what a DLC should be. It's an expansion sold for half price, basically. Lots of quests, new monsters (including a new "Ultima Weapon" style boss), new loot, upped level cap. It's awesome.

Zombie Island of Dr. Ned is pretty decent. It's got a fun new texture set, pretty cool missions, and shit, shooting zombies in a game with a million guns can't ever really be WRONG, can it?

Moxxi's Underdome is only worth it if you've got friends to co-op with you, since it's basically impossible to solo, and it's just waves of monsters. No quests or anything. It does feature a stash, but meh. You don't really need one. I've got like 12 guns and mods on my character, and if I find something that beats out one of those guns, I sell the old one.

I have 30 odd slots left in my inventory so it's not necessary.

Considering that DLC has the 5 activation limit, I think I'll pass.

meh - there are so many games to play, unless it is a CoD, BF, Madden, etc where the multiplayer base shrinks, there is no reason to buy at full retail.

Wasn't it just on sale for $25? Now $10? Meh. I can wait. By the Xmas sale, it'll be $5 for everything.

Dogfighter looks like a multiplayer Crimson Skies. Which was an awesome game.

Dogfighter was patched with dedicated servers and joystick support, btw.
