    Has this already been announced and I missed it? Looks like some kind of Vampire the Masquerade Visual Novel?

    Probably not, after the last batch of V: TM interactive fiction the excitement around here shriveled up considerably.

    What even is this? It's like the entire store page tells me nothing. It's fluff.

    Agree, but I like the vibe. Even as a visual CYOA it might be worth a few hours.

    Borderlands 2 + DLC + the Pre-Sequel are at 97% off.
    £4.82 or less depending on whether you own any bits already - that appears to be a historical low.
    Cross platform so that's a bonus - not really sure if I'm into Borderlands though.
    Isn't it just very repetitive level grinding? That's what the first felt like when I briefly tried it.

    Wasn't impressed with Brothers in Arms either - felt like a crap console fps.
    The last Gearbox game I probably enjoyed was Opposing Force for Half Life.

    Been playing through NBlood and NRedneck.

    It's a decent enough popcorn game, if you have time to burn it's worth it at 97% off lol, but yeah, really just moving and shooting doods over and over. It is ideally built as a social game for you and 3 friends to run around in.

    Only played Borderlands 2 a long time ago.

    The level design can get pretty repetitive and it's pretty linear as well. The AI isn't very good, and it's a lot like shooting health sponges most of the time if you don't have an OP gun and/or levels higher than the enemies you face.

    The majority of the enjoyment is derived from supposedly looting and finding 60 billion guns or so. In reality, there's really only 90+ guns or so with a near infinite amount of statistical differences and attachments which inflates that number of 90+ guns.

    Other than those negatives, and almost no positives, i'd say it's pretty worth it for 5 bux

    Huh. Actually picked up that Borderlands pack. Already had most of it the key pieces and I've bitched about Borderlands 2 at relative length, but at that discount I may as fucking well pick up the remaining DLC. Actually slightly interested in playing the Pre-Sequel again with the Handsome Jack DLC just to see how that changes the dialog. Not wild about Borderlands writing but I usually get the most kick out of Handsome Jack in general and since that presumably has some dialog in the story it might be a hoot. Plus I liked Pre-Sequel a little better than 2 anyway since it seemed marginally less grindy than 2.

    Definitely play (or watch) the Telltale Borderlands game then, it's the best Telltale game and also the best Borderlands game, and Handsome Jack features extensively.

    I just noticed that Destiny 2 is coming to Steam,I guess it should have been expected,Bungie left Activision so they are moving away from Battle.net and going back to Gaben's plentiful bosom

    I still can't get over the fact they're charging $60 for a JRPG that's been out for almost a year now.

    Sneaky Bethesda sale that doesn't seem to be advertised for some reason, FYI. 50% off pretty much everything except really cheap and old stuff. Got some DLC.
