Our top pick of the week?
Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition
We are pretty big fans of Borderlands and this surprise entry has us super excited! With Borderlands 3 officially announced and on it’s way why not go back and experience where the shooter-looter really began.
We personally can’t wait to take the reigns of Birck, Roland, Mordecai and most importantly Lilith again as we shoot our way through Pandora.
