    Sad to see Battleborn getting bundled so soon really, theyre really having playerbase issues, though from what I hear its still easy to get into a game anyway. The game didnt interest me at all personally, but its still quite sad to see.

    This feels less like a drive to raise money for charity, and more like Battleborn *is* the charity this time.

    Yep - some terrible launch timing and a marketing campaign that pitched it as an overwatch competitor really didn't help it though. Had they launched a month earlier or later it could have been a different story altogether.

    Great bundle though I snapped this one up!

    Re: Humble 2K Bundle 2: $15 tier buys Battleborn and Borderlands:TPS

    I grabbed this bundle too, without checking which games I already had, quite a few duplicates..!

    Glad to have finally got Duke Nukem, heard it's not great but probably not bad for the price. Battleborn looks interesting but it does get very mixed reviews on steam, maybe the HB will raise it's profile as there'll be a bump in players.

    I recently installed Borderlands 1 and really didn't enjoy it - got to the first boss (with the dogs) and he was far too bullet-spongey and the controls are too slow to stand much of a chance. I've dipped in to BL2 a couple of times on PS3 and will give it another go on PC, hoping the Pre Sequel will have some improvements.

    Interested to see what extra games they add, and I'm more than happy to hand over my $15 to the Dogs Trust as well.

    Unfortunately the third game is far behind BL2 and is BL1 got some quality of life improvements, like auto ammo and money pick up and faster movement then that would be easily better too. It's not a bad game though.

    I tried BB demo, because I've always liked Borderlands games, but I didn't get the same feeling, I know the pacing was different but the game was quite confusing and rough, despite the very good potential.
    I think what really killed it though was the launch that was way too close to Overwatch (which I love) that totally overshadowed it, and ultimately relegated it to oblivion.
