    So, after a very neck-and-neck voting period, with Supreme Commander, World in Conflict and Battlefield Bad Company 2 all vying for the top spot this month, the suprise winner of Game of the Month for September 2012 is Borderlands, which had a rush in the final stages to take the lead.

    So, this means we all play Borderlands for a month! 4 player co-op is a must, and then we can talk about it in this thread. Of course, Borderlands 2 is out on the 20th, so consider this warm up for what is looking like one of the best titles of the year.

    Don't own Borderlands? What the hell is wrong with you? Get it from:

    Steam - £19.99 GOTY
    Gamefly - GOTY
    Mac App Store - £20.99 GOTY
    GamersGate - £19.95 GOTY

    NB: I recommend the GOTY edition as this will include all the (extensive) DLC for Borderlands, but the base game is available for around £10 without.

    Game times to be arranged shortly.



    PS: If you wanted one of the other games to win, make sure you vote next month as the same titles plus one new one will be published.

    Considering the GOTY has been as cheap as £5 on steam recently it would be quite foolish to spend £20 on it at this point.

    Hopefully it will be available at a lower price this month.

    Agreed, though the hope is that most people already own it!

    just a quick note: it's available for £15 on green man gaming if you use the 25% off voucher on their main page (GMG25-1BW0K-K1A3G)

    Just started replaying this on the PS3 (given as it's free on PS+ at the mo), Haven't played the PC version at all yet, so I am up for this.

    played this game to death when it came out (seriously 7 - 8 times in a row). 6 months I picked up the DLCs, so I started again. Got as far as New Haven then lost it.

    I'm sure I could back in it for GOTM sake though :thumb:

    EDIT: found this epic cool looking map. Big spoiler alert obviously

    Okay, I'm going to start a new playthrough this Friday night at about 8pm, so will need 3 other willing players. Obviously not expecting you to stay and complete the whole game though!


    EDIT: With all DLC


    I would suggest people get in to groups and play this through as much as possible. We've got the GOTM Steam group to help organise this.

    Thought I'd say Greenmangaming has it GOTY for £19.95, but there's a 25% off everything voucher on their main page. Not got long left though.

    Cleared enough space on the HDD to re-download this last night on steam, hopefully it'll be updated by the time I get home from work.

    Hi Cei,

    Have you got 3 players for tonight do you know?

    If not then I'll be available if needed. I joined the group this morning so I'll send some friends requests out once I get on.

    Cheers, Trev

    Actually, I've been so tied up with university work I've barely been on a computer, so no!

    So, 3 people to play this evening?



    EDIT: Scratch that, I've got another 3 hours of work to do tonight :( I should be around over the weekend. Has anybody else started playing?

    Considering Borderlands 2 comes out on the 21st, And me winning a copy, I think its bad form for me to buy this just before the 2nd comes out.

    I hope you guys have fun though :)

    I'm up for playing whenever (name on steam is the same, send me a message whenever) Got characters over most level ranges, so should be ok if I missed something

    Just find me on Steam via the GOTM group, and if I'm playing Borderlands feel free to jump in!
