don;t get the love for Borderlands...

good for art style, character design and script, but boring grind fests asking you to return to the same locations again and again...

I never got it either.

I never played these games. I wonder if it's worth it to get into now that this released. The Borderlands 2 is always on sale for like 5 bucks, lol.

These games are timeless, even moreso now with the hired packs. If you like shooters, you can't go wrong. Even more fun in coop.

I just tried borderlands 1 old vs new and it feels like a different game for the better imo, it plays more like borderlands 2 now, graphics are sharper, UI scales better, game feels more fluid. It is 12 GB-ish so no huge download, you can import your save files from the old version if you want.

I have yet to try the BL2 HD version, will get to it soon.

You get the HD pack from the dlc list. It's free. Just go to the games main page in the store(steam) and look for the dlc HD pack. The pre-sequel download HD size currently is 7.3GB. Borderlands 2 HD pack is 7.9GB. I don't have all the dlc so it may be more for others.

Given the game's cell-shaded art style, I never really felt like it was being held back by texture resolution. My main beef with BL2 was poor PhysX performance. For some reason I still have to turn off PhysX (via manual INI edits, no less!) to get acceptable framerates on a GTX 970. Slowdowns mainly happened in specific areas, like the whirlpool room in the Bloodshot's hideout. Runs smooth as silk once you turn off PhysX.

This is how I've felt: what's to improve, really? Although I haven't looked at the first game in a while, maybe this will help there?

As for PhysX, it worked fine for me on my GTX670.

Thanks a lot for the free upgrade! This is a very kind move by 2K and Gearbox.

And it is not even a Chinese, uhm, Epic exclusive deal!

Some cards needed it shut off because it flat out glitched out.

Friend of mine (don't remember what card) had the rendering of 'water' and such completely flip out of PhysX was on. Didn't kill framerate just rendering went bonkers.
