    Does anyone know if Borderlands has been in any day-only deal so far?

    Me and a couple of friends have been waiting for a promotion on this game for quite some time.

    That makes two of us then :laugh:
    But I don't think they'll discount the game though :ohwell:
    And even if they do it'll probably still be more expensive than buying a copy online...

    It might, but it definitely won't be on sale for a very long time.

    They're trying to get everybody to use BattleNet's own social friends list and stuff, so I have a feeling it won't be available through Steam.

    I bought the game in the Christmas sale for 3.75 and I love it. Even for the full price(which is 16€) I think it's a solid title worth that price, although it tends to become repetitive(kill mobs -> loot-> send pet to sell stuff-> repeat).

    Basically it's like Diablo lite. You roam around the Dungeons, killing mobs of increasingly higher difficulty, looting and sending your pet to town to sell the stuff(yes, you're never alone. You can have a pet with you- cat or dog). He can learn spells to help you, he attacks the enemies, and has a backpack of his own to carry stuff. Back in the village, you can buy the usual items(potions, weapons, sell stuff) but also improve the level of your equipment, gamble, talk to a horse :eek: .

    So far I have more than 40 hours in the game and I think I can still squeeze a few more.
    All that for 4€? I think it's a steal :toast:
    And Happy birthday :)

    *EDIT*

    Here's my current character and pet:

    Yeah, that sucks. I was hoping for a good Warcraft 3 deal... just to see there isn't any Warcraft 3. Oh well :p

    hmm, get the D2D BC2 deal or gamble and hope Steam has it as a deal. EA's not willing to give me another cd-key (SSD failed twice so I couldn't deauthorize BC2). Or just call it quits on BC2....

    Happy birthday ShRoOmAlIsTiC. :)

    I'd like to ask... can anybody gift me San Andreas? I'm in the Philippines and the only GTA game I can see is Episodes from Liberty City. I can gift you anything of equal value provided that it's currently available to me.

    YAY! Borderlands heavily discounted! I'm gonna get that one :D

    *EDIT*

    1)

    [​IMG]

    That's an even better price for the 4-pack.

    2)

    [​IMG]
    The game's DLC is also discounted.

    3) They switched DOD for DOD: Source.

    prototype for 25 euros? awww. Its $15 US. Anyway i highly recommend prototype. i bought it on release and it sure is fun. Its like being spawn, i only liked it with a controller. But my brother beat it using kb and mouse.

    In terms of star wars, i played the demo excited about a star wars RTS and i was thoroughly disappointed.

    Borderlands is fantastic to play, with friends especially.

    HL2, get it.

    DoD, get DoD:source instead. DoD had balance issues.

    Crysis is fun, and makes for a good benchmark
