If you haven’t picked up Borderlands yet, 2K Games and Gearbox have given you six good reasons to jump into Pandora now, and its all part of the new Borderlands Game of the Year Edition. Here’s why you should pick it up ASAP, in no particular order:

1. The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned

2. Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot

3. The Secret Armory of General Knoxx

4. Claptrap’s New Robot Revolution

5. Early access to the Duke Nukem: Forever demo

6. The amazing trailer posted above.  Seriously, one of the best game trailers I’ve ever seen. Bravo, Gearbox.


And for those of you savvy enough to wait for this edition, you’ll pay the same price as the original game ($59.99 for 360/PS3, $49.99 for PC) and get all of that extra content. No, I’m not bitter I got it when it first came out…
