Game of the Year Edition?

#1 Edited by BenX02 (305 posts) -

EDIT: Dammit. General Discussion bug strikes again. The game I am talking about is Borderlands. 
 
Hey. I'm thinking of getting this game, but I don't want to buy it and then a month later a GOTY edition comes out for $10 more with all three DLC packs. 
 
I looked around, but couldn't find anything. What do you think the percentage of a GOTY Edition coming out are? 
 
Also, PC or 360? My computer is just a stock off of the shelf HP from late 2009. ' 
 
Thanks in advance.

@BenX02: Please tell me what game you are referring to, and I will move this to the right forum! General Discussion doesn't really have a GOTY version I don't think...

I wouldn't bet on it.

Not going to bet on it since 2k said there would be more DLC for awhile.

Don't think there will be anymore DLC. As for DLC, the really important one to get is the Armory of General Knoxx, only get Zombie island if you want to kill zombies. Don't bother with Mad Moxxie.

If it's an HP it most likely has integrated graphics, unless it's a really expensive one. That's a definite "no" unless you can upgrade the video card.
 
But if you state your system specifications (you can find them in control panel -> system) we'll know for sure.

@Demyx:  There will be, they even mentioned it on the GiantBombCast awhile ago that 2K did a financial call that will be more DLC coming.

Whoa, why did I even say that. I think there will be more DLC, and yet I said there probably wouldn't. so weird.

Just go with the 360 version. Your PC probably isn't powerful enough to give you any real advantage over the 360.

That's what I think I'll do. Thanks. I doubt my PC can make it look as good as the 360 can.

Thanks. I'll probably just get General Knoxx, and maybe Zombie Island. Isn't the bank pretty hand y though? Can't you only get that from Mad Moxxie?

No problem!

I forgot about the bank. That might be worth it then :/.

@BenX02: 
Get the 360 version so you can play with us  
 
Also if your going to get the DLC your probably going to want it all,
People say don't get the Underdome but if you like killing wave after wave of enemies (like I do) then its well worth it

Sounds cool, I might just do that. 
 
I would like the Underdome, but the fact that you don't get any XP kind of turns me off

@BenX02: 
It's pretty much Endgame content,
The first  battles are 5 rounds with 5 waves each for a total of 25 waves of enemies, You have to do this in each of the 3 arenas.
The second set of battles are only available after you have done all three of the first arenas, And those are 60 rounds of 5 waves (I think.... I'm not there yet)

The second set is 25 rounds of 5 waves, which is fun if you have a good 4 player party going.  Not so much fun solo as it gets boring pretty quick by yourself.

Doesn't a game have to be worthy of GOTY before getting a GOTY edition?  
 
Borderlands is not GOTY material.
