Playing Borderlands GOTY Enhanced is a fun, edgy nostalgia-driven trip that would best be experienced with friends, if the game permitted it. This package includes all previously released DLC, new guns, SHiFT keys and chests and some nice quality of life improvements like a FOV slider however the accessibility options are non-existent as keymapping is not included. With a cheeky, over-the-top story and characters that don't take their self too seriously, a great aesthetic and good feeling combat Borderlands is as good as it has ever been in this 4K HDR upgrade.
Dungeon Defenders Collection merges tower defense and light RPG mechanics with action based gameplay.
