Awesome! Thanks for the heads up, it's not listed on Steams main store page. Been waiting for the DLC to drop again since I picked up BL on the summer sale and ended up loving it.

Edit: Haha, apparently it is now. Wasn't earlier this morning, go figure. :P
See my trade and sale list!

Man, I would get Mad Moxxi or Dr. Ned if they didn't have the 5 machine activation limit. I hope atleast that the new claptrap one is like General Knoxx, drm-wise.

I think that is at one time activations, not in your lifetime. That would be very stupid if it was lifetime, I think they mean 5 activations at once meaning if you try installing it on a sixth computer it'll say you can't until you remove it from another.

Anyone, I was wondering beyond General Knoxx which other DLC is worth getting for Borderlands?

Is general knoxx the best one to get if you can only get 1?

I would say the Zombie one over the Mad Moxxi or whatever it is. My friends have all said the Mad Moxxi one is really annoying/boring. Just a few peoples opinions. Never played any myself.

Exactly! We're not only cheap gamers, we're also asses.

"Good enough for me," I say; Life's too short to dwell on $5.

General Knoxx > Zombie Island > Mad Moxxi

For this price I'd say get all three, but man, the Underdome Riot is mostly the opposite of fun.

I would agree with the purchase order. The one thing Mad Moxxi has going for it is the storage bank, though I haven't finished all the quests there. The arenas can be challenging, but are nothing compared to the content in the other DLCs.

At $10 Borderlands is a steal, definitely going to get the DLC now.

My memory is that you can't use Steam DLC for non-Steam purchased Borderlands. Sucks really because I want some of those DLC :(

Decided to get General Knoxx as well as the full game. The full game is there but the DLC didn't appear on my library list. Just wondering if that is normal with DLC on steam. Never gotten any before. I assume it will install along with the game. Am I correct?

Game + General Knoxx = $11.04 Cant argue with that :)

Everyone, Thank you for the responses. I am glad though I waited for a bargin on Steam. It seems like they have good sales on interesting games that I want to buy.

Agreed. Moxxi is only good for the extra skill points and the bank if you like to hoard guns.

Picked this up during that last very recent Steam sale. Very fun game, even single player.

Let me strongly urge the cheap-o's to pick up Moxxi for the storage bank. This game is all about loot, and your character can carry precious few items. In some areas, you will pick up incredibly sweet weapons that are above your current level. And if you don't have the storage bank, you are forced to either sell the weapon or carry it until you level up, wasting a precious item slot (which costs you $$$$ and opportunities).

I haven't played the various DLC's yet, so I can't comment on their content.

Does "Requires the base game Borderlands on Steam in order to play" mean you have to have the Steam version of Borderlands or does it mean you can register your disc-based version of Borderlands with Steam?

Ahh what the heck. I've tried using both my cards that are active and it keeps denying the payment!

I just used one hours ago for another online purchase, this is so weird! I've been waiting for a deal for this game for so long, and now I'm being denied right at the front door!!!

Don't buy Moxxi, it isn't worth three cents muchless several dollars. Ugh. Otherwise a great deal for the other stuff.

Snagged this and Knoxx a month or so ago on the Summer sale. Very tempted to get the other two DLC's to be a completest.

picked all these up in the summer sale, it's really an amazing price for all the dlc and the main game

i think the zombie expansion is my fave at this point though, shame the claptrap exp isn't out yet =/

I'm just going to wait for the eventual Borderlands Complete Edition or whatever. I want all the DLC (I actually like Mad Moxxi), but I just can't buy anything with activation requirements.

Does anyone know if General Knoxx largely requires group play? I thought I heard awhile back that both Moxi and General Knoxx are pretty much impossible playing solo.

The only part I think you would need a group is the first time you try to take on the super-boss. The rest of the DLC is doable solo.
