    It also includes some additions to the game(s) like ...expansions and other content. Im not sure are those secondary additions except official expansions some good mods that got included or what.

  9. I'm not really impressed with the 'updated' graphics. They don't have the smoothness of the originals. And the color scheme seems to make more use of HW2's ugly oranges and yellows. But whatever.

    All Gearbox can do is recycle their old games and pump out more iterations of Borderlands.

    Hope they did something better with that obnoxious third or fourth map in the second one, with those swarms of shitty blocks that you can destroy only with laser frigates and even if you re-purpose your whole army into them - it still takes a fucking tonnes of time to end it because you must move the Mothership slowly over the whole fing map... if they dont blow it up first. Which they tend to do often.

    They really put a lot of thought and effort into that, I'm really surprised.
    Also, I fucking love how the taidan look, plus being able to play all 4 races in multiplayer?

    I was sceptical but now its :d1p:

    How did they get the mechanics to mesh together?

    I have never played the originals, and even then I realized I was missing something.
    If the remastered collection is cheap enough, I might decide to forget that I have a kid to raise and buy the thing.

    Wow, they've really done a lot of work with this. Really looking forward to replaying HW1 now.

    There is an wot i think article on RPS by that moron Meer, who is obviously too stupid to get how the controls work and blames the game for it, but otherwise confirms that its looks great and plays good. Whatever that means - because sure as hell he doesnt know anything about any fucking details whatsoever to say anything but that "its good!".

    It's out. Initial codex reception is lukewarm at best, with many declaring it to be shit. Whiskywolfs copypasta summed it up well:


    So... yeah. At least the remakes also include the original versions of the game. So skip the popamole new shit and play the originals. Better ai, better balance, less crashing, actual ballistics model instead of a RNG deciding if yo uhit.

    Did vanilla HW2 have ballistic model?
    If not I retract all my statements regarding it containing mechanical improvements over HW1.
