Patch Quest? That sounds like a game Bethesda should play :p

Considering that TTW is probably the sole game you may want to buy this bundle for, I always recalled some issue with the game. I don't remember exactly what it was, but in case it was DRM, apparently it was removed in April.

Also note that apparently it's possible to choose from Steam or EGS key for that game, so choose wisely.

I just finished playing through The Forgotten City, and certainly enjoyed it.

Tiny Tina's Wonderlands looks like it could be fun, but I note with interest that all of the DLC is very negatively reviewed.

Deceive Inc looks like it could be fun if I were into online multiplayer, but I'm not. The rest doesn't look all that interesting, so ...

QuoteTTW is probably the sole game you may want to buy this bundle for

... this seems accurate for me.

Great pack. The Forgotten City has a memorable story. Tiny Tina is a good coop fun. I had fun with Patch Quest too.

Quoting: PhlebiacTiny Tina's Wonderlands looks like it could be fun, but I note with interest that all of the DLC is very negatively reviewed.

I have been a Borderlands ADDICT for 10+ years. If I go back to any of those games for one night, I get sucked to it again. Except for Tiny Tina's Wonderlands.

If you've never fallen into the Borderlands trap* before, Tiny Tina's Wonderlands might seem like fun, but if you're a Borderlands aficionado, it's garbage. They broke the whole (very successful) formula for a cash grab.

They don't want you playing that game 5 years later, so there's no "True Vault Hunter" mode (second playthrough, kind of like a newgame+) and once your characters are maxed out, there's really nothing more but grinding with tedious, bullet sponge enemies. So all that money and gear and silly magic spells you've collected are all for naught, your character is done.

Traversal sucks (you have to suffer an irritating, minigame board game type thing to get to different areas)

The DLC is just tedious grinding "encounters" and the loot you get from the "wheel of fate" for doing them is just repetitive. I ran through them all twice.

The writing is terrible too. Insultingly stupid. Tina isn't even funny in her echo recorder appearances. They re-used voice actors in corny, in-your-face ways, too, that made me more irritated than amused.

(* I use the word "trap" because the Borderlands games tweak the dopamine reward circuit in your brain. You have to kill enemies (and complete quests) to level up, so you can get better gear, so you can kill enemies better, so you can level up, so you can get better gear, so you can kill enemies better so you can level up... because more awesome rewards await at higher levels lol)

Getting it in a bundle cheap, it would be an enjoyable game at face value, when not butthurt like I am, though.

I just got it for The Forgotten City, the rest is going on the trade pile. I'm a fan of time manipulation games, so I expect this game should be right up my alley. I believe I would have liked Outer Worlds too, had it not been so comfortable with wasting my time, I'm not able to rewind that clock and get my own time back, that works only in the game.
