Shooting this monster from a distance feels like cheating

The game play of Borderlands involves carrying out quests across huge environments while collecting oodles of loot, levelling up, và optimising your loadout all while experimenting with different builds. This loop is highly entertaining and rewarding, especially when you become powerful enough to take down the next hulking boss. However, you don"t have to lớn go it alone as you can join fellow mercenaries online via a simple interface that also allows you to lớn host your own games. There are no real limits put in place so you can join folks who are way more levelled up than you are even though you"ll probably bite the dust more than a mite with a tapeworm if you do so.

I prefer playing Borderlands online as I find the gameplay to be much more enjoyable as you haphazardly muck about và help others fight through difficult situations. Plus, doing things like driving around in a vehicle where one player mans a cannon is a literal and figurative blast. In addition khổng lồ all of this, the trò chơi of the Year Edition includes 4 extra campaigns in the size of The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned, Mad Moxxi"s Underdome Riot, The Secret Armory of General Knoxx, & Claptrap"s New Robot Revolution. Each one of these campaigns will take at least a few hours khổng lồ work through and the main campaign is at least trăng tròn hours long so you"re looking at a ton of content.

One thing that impressed me a great giảm giá khuyến mãi about Borderlands: trò chơi of the Year Edition is how well it runs on Switch. Previously, I"ve only played the PS3 release and that version had a ton of texture pop-in & other issues but I didn"t really notice anything substantial here. It even plays well while undocked which made me raise my eyebrows. I may sound old by saying this but I never would have thought playing Borderlands portably could hold up so well. What a time to be a gamer! Excuse me while I pop another Werther"s Original.

Finally, allow me to lớn discuss some aspects of Borderlands: game of the Year Edition that aren"t ideal. For starters, its story is basically non-existent & merely acts as a premise then you just play around in its world. It doesn"t really go anywhere memorable & there are no engaging plot points but blowing up people"s heads is fun so who cares? Speaking of stupidity, the AI can be downright dumb as most enemies act in highly predictable ways so you can mow most foes down without thinking twice about it. Last but not least, I wish there were some Switch-exclusive features or extras but as far as I can see, it"s the same game that"s been kicking around for over a decade. I guess Mario would have had a hard time fitting into its crazy violent world. Perhaps he could have munched some bad mushrooms.

Save me, Jaden!

Over a decade later, Borderlands still offers righteous good times. The fact that you can now play it portably is just awesome so clear some space on your SD card và get ready to lớn shoot some Midget Psychos in the head.
