Back in the mix

Black Friday laptop deals got the better of me this year, and I decided to snatch up a relativity powerful and cheap HP laptop. Needless to say, one of the first things I downloaded was Steam. I picked up a few games on the cheap over the past two weeks; World of Goo, Limbo, Oblivion, The humble bundle. This weekend I picked up the Borderlands GOTY edition and it completely stole my weekend. I played it on 360 when it first came out, but I never finished it. There is something supremely comforting about stepping back into a old yet familiar game and getting hooked all over again. The random look drops, hawk screeches and numbers flying off enemies elicit the same visceral feelings. Looking forward to actually beating it this time and spending some time in the DLC.

The word is "elicit", but otherwise I agree. I never got to the DLC, but it's a slick, slick game.

I liked all the DLC except Mad Moxxie's Thunderdome. It just took too long to complete a checkpoint or whatever.

@MideonNViscera checking out the reviews, it seems that most people agree with you. The zombie themed DLC looks pretty awesome.
