Borderlands 2 GOTY edition appears on Steam Database

The Steam Database — which is almost never wrong — has been mined to reveal the existence of a GOTY edition of Borderlands 2.

Much as the first game released a GOTY edition with all its DLC included, this one appears to include the same — the list of DLC shows Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep, the Psycho Pack, the Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack, Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt, the Mechromancer Pack, Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage, the Creature Slaughterdome, and Captain Scarlett and her Pirate’s Booty.

None of this is officially confirmed from Gearbox so we can’t give you a price or a release date yet, but it might be worth holding off on any purchases you were thinking of making as an announcement can’t be far off.

…and that’s why Gearbox don’t already have my money.

If they chose to release a complete game up front, I would have bought this when it came out.

I got 100 hours out of the game without any of the DLC. Now that I have the season pass, I’m looking forward to another 50-100 hours :).

To say BL2 wasn’t a complete game at launch is pretty hilarious.

My gaming brethren, I ask 2 questions of you.

Firstly, why are so many games released with GOTY attached to the end? There should only be one (in my opinion of course). Not “Oh 2013 had Bioshock infinite GOTY, Borderlands 2 GOTY, Every-other-game-with-DLC-content GOTY”

Secondly, why does steam give access to the Steam Database, or better yet, why do we have access to its contents? Is it stored system side (makes sense) or do we have some talented hackers/data miners who hang out on Valve servers?

And now I’ll get the exact same 50-100 hours, plus all of the hours of the obviously pre-planned DLC, for about a quarter of the original retail price.

I’m sure it was ‘complete’ in the sense that it was a self-contained game, but like most major games they would have had a pre-existing plan to nickel and dime you for extra content after release.

My philosophy these days is that if a game is fun today, it’ll be fun in a year when it’s released in a gold edition for virtually nothing. And there are enough great games around that buying stuff on release is for suckas. IMHO. The only game that’s seriously tempted me to buy it upon release in ages has been The Last of Us, but so far I’ve held out. It’ll be $30 in a platinum edition soon enough.

Meanwhile have fun paying again for the same game!

 

caitsith01,

Usually I agree but mainly for singleplayer games. BL2 is intended as a co-op experience and I know if I were starting the game when the GOTY edition comes out i’d be playing alone as all my friends would have already played the game.

 

On that note, is the game worth it SP for people with no friends?

I would say yes, however it would lose alot of it’s replay value.

 

phylum,

Funnily enough I played the percentage solo .. I played Hammerlocks with 3 friends and I felt like it was fun, but I enjoyed it more going at my own pace.

Cas Bitton,

What Cas said. What a hilarious comment.

 

What a hilarious comment.

Reading for meaning and not pedantry is also ‘hilarious’, you should try it.

 

You made a stupid comment, stop now.

The game is fantastic and while the rest of us have enjoyed it for the last 10 months without issue of paying to get it on release, you’ve been a tight ass and held out.

Congratulations, no one cares.

Also, there are multiple organisations that have awards for games, much like there is for music (Grammy’s, AMA’s, Billboard Music Awards, MTV VMA’s etc etc) and not all of them have the same things winning the same categories.

I disagree.

I am finding it amusing how offensive people find the concept of someone not liking the idea of paying full retail for a game then paying again for pre-planned add on content.

I guess you are replying to show me that “no one cares”.

 

caitsith01,

You talk as if this was all content that was cut from the main game which isn’t the case at all. BL1/2 are some of the few examples of DLC done right. They’re side stories completely separate and self-contained from the main game meant as an addition to the original game. To be opposed to what Gearbox has done with both BL games is to be opposed to the expansion packs of yesteryear.
