#12780292 Borderlands: The Handsome Collection - $39.99 via Amazon

Posted by midloo on Yesterday, 12:30 AM

I'm not sure about this being a msrp drop. Best buy still has it for full price. Perhaps gamestop just has it on sale and Amazon matched it.

I think this is correct.  I'm still seeing $60 for digital.  

 

It seems like this game should have had a deep digital sale by now (and it should have launched at $40 MSRP).

Ok I'll address the elephant in the room

 

Why so much animosity towards your mailman? lol

 

He was featured in Chevy Chase's 'Funny Farm', though they had to use another actor for the scene where he pretended to be a decent person.  

 

In truth, it all started when one morning our mailbox door was ripped off.  I happened to be outside when he was delivering our mail and he said, "Fix your mailbox, please."  I said, "Okay" and thought...  "that's odd...  I wonder how it happened?"  

 

I loaded up the recorded footage for the day before from a security camera outside our house.  It showed the same bozo that just asked me to fix the mailbox kicking it and ripping the door off himself.   Then I went back to earlier recorded videos and saw that he liked to punch our packages a few times before he threw them up 10 stairs on to our porch.  

 

OK. 

 

The next day I stopped him while he was delivering mail and said, "I'd appreciate it if you would stop beating up our mailbox and throwing our packages.  I have you on video doing it."  He just looked up at me, slid his sunglasses down his nose, and with the lack of emotion of a serial killer said, "okay".  

 

Now he delivers beat up packages on the side door to our house where there is no security camera.  I'm here alone waiting to be robbed or killed right now as I type this.

Our mailman is one of the worst examples of humanity I've ever encountered.  

 

I hope this sale is so good that I break his back.

Yeesh.. do ANY SUikoden fans not hate IV?

 

Not this Suikoden fan.  I remember when IV was released.  I bought it without reading a review because it said "Suikoden" on it and I took that as a seal of quality.  That game felt like a betrayal.  It's probably why I love V so much.  While playing it, I kept thinking to myself, "Oh yeah... they still know how to make a good Suikoden game.  IV was a fluke."

Regardless of your stance on Shenmue 3 going to Kickstarter, this GIF of the GT guys reaction is priceless. Such joy. I love it. If this doesn't put a smile on your face, there is a good chance you are dead inside.

 

Spoiler

 

Color me dead.  That guy looks like he has far too much emotionally invested in video games.

Any reason not to wait on it and see if it'll drop down below $20 at some point later?   Is it worth $20 in your opinion?

I've only played through the first chapter so far, but I'm enjoying it.  It plays like I have wanted an RE to play for a while.  

 

I'm old.  I was indifferent about the first RE on the PS1 when it was released.  I liked RE4 on the gamecube very much.  I thought RE5 was pretty okay if you wanted a coop experience and I couldn't force myself to get all the way through RE6.  

 

So far, RE Revelations 2 seems to be taking what I liked from all the previous RE games.  I haven't tried Raid mode yet, but many people say it's deep and worth the price of admission alone.  

 

I was happy to spend $20 on it.  Will it get cheaper?  Sure...  it's CAPCOM :)

I'm sure this has been asked so my bad in advance but is Revelations 2 on sale this week only $5 off the normal PSN price of Episode 1 + Season Pass or the Complete Season? I haven't really been paying attention to the console ones because I was waiting for the Vita port but I have a feeling its not going to turn out so great. Hope I'm wrong, though.

Yes - you can save a little bit on the full digital game right now.  I mentioned some specifics about this wonky sale here:

Covert Forces controller

controller-d9462343-39a7-4fdf-9717-b88c3

 

I'll preface this by saying that I am not loyal to one particular console manufacturer over another.  

 

I used one of these new controllers for a few minutes over last weekend.  I thought it was certainly the best iteration of any controller from MS. It was also one of the best feeling controllers I had ever held period.  I do prefer asymmetrical analog sticks over the inline ones from Sony though, so I'm a little biased there.

Is Sunset Overdrive season pass worth a purchase?  I need something to blow these expiring funds on..  I'm still hoping for some great deals next week during E3.

Did you like Sunset Overdrive?  It's probably around 7-10 hours more of it with some nice new locations, some new multiplayer, and four guns that are genuinely fun to use IMO.  I think it's well worth it, but you could look at some more detailed reviews if you are curious.

Never been big on Halo, because I suck ass at it, so I'll be skipping that one.

Everything else is on my radar, especially Battleborne. The older I get the more I want to play online multiplayer games, fighting against predictable dumb ass programmed computer AI in single player games is so played out. Arkham Knight and Fallout are the exceptions.

That's interesting.  The older I get, the less inclined I am to wade into the cesspool that is multiplayer console shooters.  So many kids acting like such fools.  I'd take a well made single player experience any day.  One of the reasons that I really enjoyed Wolfenstein last year.

REvelations 2 season pass is $24.99 for me, is it not supposed to be $15.99?

That's not the season pass, that's the "Complete Season".  The season pass doesn't have the first episode. At the beginning of this week's sale, you could have bought episode one for 3.99 and then the season pass for 15.99 and save some money.

Ass Rogue is absolutely excellent IMO.

 

Solid story and an interesting spin on the whole "Templars/Assassins" dynamic. The best way to describe Rogue without giving away any story is its the perfect mix of the best aspects of Ass III and Ass IV. I actually enjoyed things like taking over gang strongholds and I found sea battles even better than they were in Ass IV. Many characters from this timeframe in the series show up and there are some real surprises if you're familiar with the other games. If you're a casual Ass player, its probably a wait for you, but if you enjoy these games, its well worth a play. 75% off of 59.99 is an easy buy for me if I didn't already own it. Its a good Ass game. The PC version is the complete opposite of Ass Unity. Silky smooth and ran perfectly for me.

 

Rogue ties in well with Ass Unity too (the end game is masterfully done as far as Im concerned). I'm going to disagree vehemently with calling Ass Unity a "cash grab". Its a good iteration of the game, shamefully plagued by some technical problems and some poor design choices, but the story is one of the stronger in the series, and Paris is one of the best looking recreations in a game Ive ever seen. I havent played it in a while, but the last I did they had improved it technically in a lot of ways. It's a good Ass game that I'd put probably 4th in the Ass list, with Ass IV on top, Ass Ezio 2nd, Ass Rogue 3rd.

 

Ass III is still the worst Ass game for me in all respects except Haytham Kenway who may be my favorite character in the entire series.

 

That's a lot of ass.  

 

I think I'll check out Rogue for that price.  Thanks for the heads up.

It seriously pisses me off that game play and unlockable items are locked behind these plastic doodads.  It seriously pisses me off that I'm compelled to pay more than MSRP of $35 just to have these things.  Congrats to anyone that can find them for less.

So I am buying an external HD enclosure for small SATA drive for my 360.  Am I better off just getting a USB 3.0 compatible one in case I ever decide to switch it over to the X1?

I'd think so.  The cost difference so that you are future-proofed is probably negligible.

Did I start something bad here?

No.  Thank you for posting this.  I personally would've missed the deal without this thread.
