Ohhh I'm keen. Loved the campaigns so to have a new one added is cool. Was never good at multiplayer but did enjoy watching back in the days. Will be keeping an eye on this.

I hope so. I actually want the taunts - "All Hail King of Losers" and "Start the game already!"

They try to keep a lot of MS games cross platform now with their Play Anywhere scheme. Buy on one platform, play on either.

Went to the E3 screening in Auckland today with Microsoft, that was cool. They made the announcement and the crowd was reasonably hyped for it. 

 

Missed the start of the event due to traffic, wasn't happy. 

 

Borderlands 3 was what I wanted to see.

I played the original a lot back in 2000, but now usually only 3-4 games per year when friends are back over Christmas.
