Borderlands The Handsome Collection is free until June 4th on the EpicGamesStore!

What can be said about the critically aclaimed Borderland game series?

Created by GearBox which aparrently took money from SEGA and Alien Collonial Marines and used it on their own projects. They used the majority of the funding from Sega, on several occasions, to fund every project they created. This dates back to Duke Nukem Forever, where it is fundamentally believed Gearbox used the Sega money to even purchase the rights to finish the game.

The next batches of money were used heavily in funding Borderlands and Borderlands 2, the two flagship titles that company essentially became known for. Of these three titles that used Sega funding, none of them were Sega games. This meant Sega saw zero profits from the sales of them, and instead watched their money get flushed down the toilet.

But besides the controversies and Randy Pitchford as a CEO, what can be said about this game? Well... it's a pretty good game, an award-winning FPS-RPG series with randomly generated stats for our guns, cooperative gameplay, and all bonus add-on content.

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection includes:

  • The critically acclaimed BORDERLANDS 2 and BORDERLANDS: THE PRE-SEQUEL games in one package
  • All bonus add-on content for both games, adding hundreds of hours of gameplay at an incredible value*
  • Cooperative gameplay for up to four players online
     

I personally had an amazing time playing this game, it was a great experience and ignoring certain stuff like the driving (Which in my opinion is quite clunky, at least on pc) and certain sense of... bullet-spongie enemies; it was overall a good game and really worth trying now that it's free on the Epic Games Store

Not a big fan of Randy Pitchford after all that "usb" fiasco and the numerous allegations against him, but yes, this is indeed a good game. Thank you for your post
