I recently published an article about my thoughts of the first three Borderlands games. As I mention in the article, it has been a long time since I have played any of the games, but I am hoping to change that in the months leading up to the release of Borderlands 3.
I think I will revisit the original Borderlands game starting in early June. I have the GOTY Enhanced edition on Steam and plan on running through the main story from start to finish. I also might play the Zombie Island of Dr. Ned, my favorite DLC. I may not stream the entire experience, but expect to see me on Twitch occasionally as I get back into streaming this Summer.
One thing I definitely want to give a try is the "One Life Challenge" in Borderlands 2. I'm not sure if my gaming skills are quite good enough to avoid death entirely, but I would like to see how far I can make it through the game without dying.
Borderlands 3 is set to release September 13, 2019 and I am getting hyped for its release. One thing I find very disappointing is the game will be exclusive to the Epic Games store on launch. I mostly stick to Steam and I'm not entirely sure if I want to pre-order the game through a different client/store. From what I can tell, it will be about 6 months until the game is released on other PC clients.
Its been awhile before I've been this excited for a new release... Here's the reveal for Borderlands 3!
Borderlands Free Weekend
Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is free to play this weekend on Steam. The Handsome Collection includes Borderlands 2 & The Pre-Sequel as well as most of the DLC for both games. Its a great opportunity to try out these great games. You can also purchase the entire collection for just $14! The games may be a bit dated now, but these are both excellent games that could prove to be dozens or even hundreds of hours of fun! You can check out the sale here:
