How have we normalised this absurdity, so that ‘Game of the Year’ comes to mean ‘definitive, including all the expansion packs and DLC oddities’? Nevermind that the year in question is 2012, which immediately repaints the scene in sepia somewhat. Why not slap on a ‘Now A Major Motion Picture’ sticker too?
Fortunately, Borderlands specialises in normalised absurdity, so I suppose we should all be unambiguously pleased to see the series get its second Best Game of the Games edition to date.
The database entry was flagged by SteamDB four days ago, and bundles together all of Borderlands’ assembled DLC:
- Captain Scarlet’s And Her Pirate’s Booty
- Mister Torgue’s Campaign Of Carnage
- Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt
- Tiny Tina’s Assault On Dragon Keep
- Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade
- Mechromancer Pack
- Psycho Pack
- Creature Slaughter Dome
It simply hasn’t stopped, has it? Regardless of your opinion on Gearbox’s post-release pile-it-on policy, that’s an awful lot of Borderlands you probably haven’t played.
Do you think you’ll snap the Game of the Year edition up once it shows its face on Steam’s lovely grey facade?
Thanks, PC Gamer.
