borderlands 2

Looking for something to do this weekend? I’ve got two words for you: Borderlands 2. If you haven’t played the game before, the folks over at Stack Social are running a sweet deal on the popular FPS sequel for both PC and Mac.

In the game, you return to the crazy planet of Pandora as one of 4 unique, playable characters: Axton, Maya, Salvado and Zer0. And upon selecting one of them, you’ll embark on a journey of revenge, redemption and blood shed…

Here’s a trailer for Borderlands 2, for those who haven’t seen it:

And here are some of the game’s more notable features:

  • All-New Characters and Classes: Four all new classes, the Siren, the Commando, the Gunzerker and the Assassin.
  • Play Online with Friends: Share your adventures with friends on both Mac and PC, drop in and drop out of a campaign without ever having to restart the game.
  • Revamped Gun System: Millions upon millions of possible weapons. Fire, electricity, corrosive acid, and more are at your disposal.
  • 87 Bazillion…Everything: Procedurally generated shields, grenades, alien artifacts, class mods and much, much more.
  • Brand new environments: From the arctic tundra, through the dangerous grasslands, past the mysterious corrosive caverns and beyond, there’s more of Pandora to discover than ever before.
  • Brand new enemies: Get ready to use that arsenal to shoot, burn, vaporize, and electrocute gorilla-like Bullymongs, vicious Stalkers, the Hyperion mechanical army, and hordes of other creatures.

Normally, the game runs $30. But for a limited time, Stack Social is offering it as a digital download for both PC and Mac users, for just $11.99. As aforementioned, that’s a discount of 60% and not a bad way at all to spend $12.

It’s pretty simple. If you’re interested in picking up the game, just click here to visit the deal page. And once ordered, you’ll receive a Steam code to redeem your purchase (so yes, this requires Steam). There’s a 7 day refund policy.

    If you miss this deal, don’t sweat it. Borderlands 2 is on sale on Steam more often than it’s not…

      I’ll either wait for GOTY edition, or the equivalent, because I don’t want to spend 12$ for a game just to spend 60$ for the DLC’s
      I will wait till the game goes 75% off WITH DLCs.
      My guess it will be either in the Halloween sale, or the Winter one.

    Alright, so I need some help, and I’m thinking this is the best place to ask… 
    I bought this game for my MacBook Pro not long after it came out. I love it, but I can’t stand playing with the keyboard. I need a controller that would work — out of package and without having to install programs to make it compatable — with my MacBook. 
    Does such a controller even exist? What should I buy? 
    I’d appreciate if your input is from experience, not from “this controller should work” suppositions. 
    Thanks so much.

      There’s this mac game called bomber squad and it has compatibility with my ps3 controller, just had to set it up with the usb witht he bluetooth app and it worked, but i think that has to do with the way the software works :/ Havent tried actual games running on my mac with my ps3 remote. You can always try though!
