Borderlands DLC.. yeah, i know!!

Zombie Island of Dr. Ned (Flanders?)... Despite the lack of any Simpsons cameo parts the news is we already have DLC announce for a game that's not even out yet. The good news, it haz teh zombies, bad news - are they just trying to fleece us for a few more quid seeing as the DLC is apparently ready to go right now!

Tasked with keeping the workers of Jakobs Cove alive, Dr. Ned (who is not related to Dr. Zed from Fyrestone) does his job a little too well, creating zombies and other abominations that now run rampant in this region. Players will have to work alongside Dr. Ned as they embark on a quest to cure the inhabitants of Jakobs Cove in this full-fledged expansion filled with new enemies, new quests and rare loot drops. - Gearbox.

Not sure of how much extra gameplay this pack involves or the size of the map, but it's being touted at $10, so i guess that'll work out at £7.99 to us Brit's. It should be dropping 'later this year' or as soon as sales of the original game start to dip i guess.

Canceled my pre-order with amazon, damn postal strike due this week (Thurs+Fri) and re-ordered it from my local Blockbuster with the promise of a £5 rental voucher. pretty sure i lost the last voucher they gave me too. What real world shop do you use for your gaming needs?

[mobiletone] One of many zeros, Kicked around bored.


  1. I will probably see if my local Asda have this on Friday. They usually have slightly cheaper prices than the online stores for most stuff, and I get to claim I have been out socialising too! My local Blockbuster always seems to sell games at the *full* RRP, so I tend not to bother with them.

    It does seem to be a worrying trend that companies fleece us (sorry, "have new content") ready even before the game has hit the shelves.

  2. Amazon had it for 35 then add on a couple of quid postage, so paying 39 from Blockbusters and getting a five quid rental credits too.. swings and roundabouts i guess.

    Plus Blockbusters is on the way home so i get to mooch about 'socialising' too :D i always find they have a good cheap trade-in/ex-rental selection, not many people in these parts use BB for gaming purchases so they clear them out cheap from time to time.
