Why is everyone so sure it's borderlands? I know these deals suck but a shooter from '09? There's a few I could think of that it might be.


Agreed, I think Deus Ex would be far more likely.

Unfortunately, it is definitely Borderlands.

Type into Google: Action RPG Meets first person shooter. (which is the hint)

Yea, these Amazon Goldbox deals are pretty lackluster most of the time.

I googled it but added deus ex and apparently every news site thinks its deus ex. I get it's the amazon explanation but maybe not.

Since deus ex was just on gamefly sale, I might bite on a borderlands GOTY since I haven't played it. What was it clearancing for at Target? I'm sure they'll do a weak $24.99 or $19.99 if it is the deal.

Well, it will be VERY annoying if it's Deus Ex for the same price as Gamefly used. I wonder if it will be too late to cancel my order...

It's got to be Borderlands GOTY. On the back of my copy it says "Action RPG meets first person shooter."

What about the regular edition though?


I'm banking on that 4PM deal being Borderlands GOTY! With my luck though it'll turn out to be just regular Borderlands for like $15.

Not really interested in anything else today...

I'm pretty sure at least one did today, they just drop since people change their minds quickly.

Seems like most of the games are about $10 off, so Borderlands GOTY at $19.99 would be a good guess. Wouldn't surprise me at $24.99 either though.

This was $20 at gamestop over the summer. Still a good deal though. Great game and a ton of content in the GOTY edition.

I had the choice too. The only option I had for the edition is Game of the Year (though, why would you choose the other...?).

Picked up a copy! Thanks OP! I used my $10 gift card from the Local Amazon gift card sale and got this bad boy for $9.99.

Technically you got it for $14.99 since you had to shell out $5 for the Local Amazon deal, lol. But I forgot I had that and now I'm considering it as well...

I just picked up the vanilla borderlands for $8.99 at best buy. Is the dlc worth returning it and picking up the goty?

IMHO, yes. The vanilla game was good in the game mechanics department, but the storytelling and immersion were a little weak. In the DLC, however, the "borderlands flair" really kicks in. They really took the feedback (that the storytelling and characters were a little bland) to heart and made great strides to improve that in the DLC. Not to mention these are not 1-2 hour side missions, you can easily spend nearly as much time going through the DLC as you did through the main campaign.

Except Mad Moxxi. That DLC was terrible, but the other 3 were so good that it more than makes up for it. Borderlands is a great example of DLC done properly.

Also your enjoyment of the game will go up tenfold if you play through co-op with a friend. There are hours and hours and hours of great co-op play in here.

Valuewise, for sure. But only if you play it.

Well if you want to get that technical, then I can easily sell both my vanilla copy of Borderlands and the Double Add-On Pack for $10 total (I don't have the other 2 DLC's yet)... so really it'd mean I got the game for $4.99 :-P

Quick, can anyone tell just from the cover art on Amazon if it is the version with the DLC on disk, or is it the one with the DLC as download tokens.

Help! There's only 29 mins left!

No clue, man. I just purchased a "Platinum Hits" edition game new the other day, and they gave me the standard. So frankly, it's a toss up no matter what cover is up.


Yes! I am in a signature! :applause:
