    He was waiting for borderlands 2. They got it for half off, $15, or the game of the year edition with 10 dlcs included for $40. Adding season pass is still $26 more. Any recommendations? :ear

    WAIT.

    I got it in the summer for 10, season pass 10 more, and I plan to get the rest of the DLC's during the winter sale for a few bucks each.

    It will likely go for less in a flash sale.

    You don't need the season pass if you buy the GOTY edition....it was just a way to buy the first 4 DLC's ahead of their release. Those DLC's are already included in the GOTY package. I would still wait a couple of days and see if it goes lower on a daily deal or flash sale this weekend.

    For any of you holding off on Skyrim, the Legendary Edition is down to $20 for the next day.

    Here's what Borderlands 2 looked like during the summer sale;

    $10.19 - USD Borderlands 2
    $10.19 - USD Borderlands 2 Season Pass
    $3.39 - USD Borderlands 2: Mechromancer Pack
    $1.69 - USD Borderlands 2 Collectors Edition DLC
    $1.69 - USDBorderlands 2 Creature Slaughterdome DLC

    As you can see it's a pretty big savings.

    I'm glad I don't have enough time to even be tempted... Plus I still have some games downloaded on that origin bundle you guys set me up and, last but not least, I'm not done with war thunder by a long shot... When I get a break from work, which seems will take a while based on the current clusterfuck I go through, I have plenty of gaming options...

    But honestly those bastards are doing their job right, steam is dangerously well thought out...

    Awesome pic, I'm totally stealing it!

    Time is my issue as well, I have so many games at this point and every time I sit down at my puter all I want to play is War Thunder. There hasn't been a game that's sunk its claws in me this bad since ME3 came out.

    I still have a shit-ton of titles to even try...the entire Arma series, Duex Ex, the entire last Humble Bundle, etc.

    I gave Batman: Arkham City, Far Cry2 and Company of Heroes a try but none of them "clicked."

    And now you've got me an itchy trigger finger away from buying Skyrim for PC when there are so many other games I need to buy first especially since I have it for 360. :becca

    I'll buy a PS4 when they fix the 1 million prototypes and patch the OS so I can use it as a media server.

    Up till then I'll stick with the PS3, which has been bulletproof.

    If you want a console for media XBox 1 is the way to go :deal I think even PS4 fan boi's wont argue that, hell they complain about XB1's focus on media.

    If you don't live in the US, most of Xbone's media connectivity won't work. Blame Microsoft's idiotic Americentric shortsightedness.

    But at any rate, unless you want the free monthly PSN+ games (or really want to play the launch games), you might as well wait until Infamous: Second Son appears and get a bunduru err I mean a bundle.

    So I picked up a new graphics card and amd threw in 2 games.

    1st one is Sleeping Dogs and the second one will be Thief when it is released.

    I am quite happy with Sleeping Dogs so far. Hongkong flavor GTA. :clap

    So which DLC's are included in the Borderlands 2 season pass?

    Oh and ImaPoser, Borderlands 2 (the base game) will be free on PSN next month if you guys have a PS3. It'll end up costing a lot more with the DLC's but if he'd be fine with just the main game that would be something to think about.

    You are very hard to convince it seems. :lol3

    Good choice anyways. Has to be a good game, when you can wear this (after having enough face points to pull it off): :rofl
