Borderlands 2: Tiny Tina's Assault On Dragon Keep

If you play Borderlands 2, you’ve probably noticed a new DLC called Tiny Tina’s Assault On Dragon Keep. Is it worth your time to get it? Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep released on June 25th, 2013, available on Steam and consoles.

“PLOT TWIST”

Borderlands 2 - and Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep - is available now for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. Follow Andrew on Twitter @ andrewdyce. Share Share Tweet Email. Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep, the biggest and most inspired add-on content in Borderlands history, features a game within a game, as Tiny Tina takes on the role of Bunker Master in a game of “Bunkers & Badasses”. Taking place after the event of Borderlands 2, Tina and the first group of Vault Hunters decide to play a game of Bunkers and Badasses, Pandora's equivalent to the table top game 'Dungeons & Dragons'. Tina serves as the 'Bunker Master' and narrator of the DLC, and changes the world in dynamic ways as the story progresses, such as altering the appearance of locations and adding characters and bosses.Th.

When it comes to downloadable content (DLC), I think all gamers can agree that it’s usually a rip off, a cheap way for companies to make money, and just in general—a cheap ass rip off. When you’ve got big gaming companies that price their games at the usual $59.99, gamers would expect to have a product worth it’s big price. However, that is not the case. Present day big blockbusters games will often leave you at a disadvantage or an incomplete product if you don’t purchase their DLC after already dishing out 60! On top of that, DLCs don’t come cheap, as they often start around 10 to 15 dollars.

Borderlands 2 was a game priced at $59.99 at it’s release September last year (you can get it for $39.99 now), and during its release, it introduced a season pass which allowed you to download DLCs released later on at the price of 30, which didn’t at all impress me the slightest. (PLOT TWIST) However, since I enjoyed my time playing the first borderlands, I decided to give it a try (and the season pass too). Despite the hefty price tag, I thought the season pass, moreover Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep, was well worth it, DLC or not. Hell, I’d even pay another 10 dollars to my already 30 dollar season pass if Tiny Tina’s DLCs wasn’t included, because it was really that amazing.

The previous DLCs included in the season pass to my experience didn’t sit well with me, especially the third DLC (Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt), but the latest and final DLC (Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep) was something different and much more memorable.

Essentially, Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep follows a sweet, quirky, yet psychotic, and very lethal girl named Tiny Tina, hence the DLC name. In it, she creates a board like game from which you the player will venture through. She will partially control the plot by means of storytelling and rolling a die (presumably similar to Dungeons and Dragons) and occasionally put in a “PLOT TWIST” here and there to keep the plot interesting.

“YOU SHALL NOT PASS”

Borderlands 2, in essence, is a game that plays on sarcastic, quirky, and outrageous humour to guide it’s plot. Despite being extremely humorous, the humour isn’t overdone. Instead it is seamlessly written into the plot so that it makes sense within that space, time and character. Tiny Tina’s DLC doesn’t lose any of that focus, evident when the humour just reinforces character’s traits and personalities honestly. As a Borderlands fan you will appreciate the attention to detail and continuity in this DLC regarding character personalities from the main Borderlands 2 game. Another aspect worth mentioning regarding Borderlands humour are the small references here and there from Skyrim to Lord of the Rings within this DLC.

One crucial important thing to note whether you’re still iffy about this DLC, is that you’ll appreciate the developers for making Tiny Tina’s Assault On Dragon Keep so extensive. You can tell they didn’t just repackage or re-skin anything from before. More importantly, it felt like their main intent wasn’t for them to horde money, instead, it felt as though this was truly for the fans (many game developers should take note). It included many features that were never introduced before, like fun little puzzles, uses for objects that were deemed rather useless prior to this DLC, and a whole new world that will make you feel like this DLC was a stand alone game itself. The atmosphere and the voicing took a makeover too, setting the stage for a medieval-ish feeling, which was quite a refreshing new addition to the already post-apocalyptic future sort of setting Borderlands 2.

“The end. So, what did you guys think?”

One minor gripe I had with this DLC was that about 3/4 of the way through, I felt as though the developers didn’t know what to do, so they inserted relentless crowds of baddies, which got somewhat repetitive. You’ll quickly forgive the developers because of the overall polish of this game and appreciation for a fun and well finished DLC. The best part, in my opinion and perhaps for the fans of this series, is that this DLC will provide countless hours of gameplay and side missions (and will give you a wellspring of quotes. All of the headings here are quotes from the game). Furthermore, you’ll get some much wanted closure for characters within the main plot of Borderlands 2. Basically, Tiny Tina’s DLC didn’t feel like a DLC, because there was so much content and character in itself that it shames present day DLC from other major gaming publishers. Kudos to the writer Anthony Burch and the developer team Gearbox Software.

If you have Borderlands 2, I highly recommend the season pass (which includes Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep DLC) or just Tiny Tina’s DLC for 9.99 on steam. Plus it’s Tiny Tina (everyone loves Tiny Tina)!

If you’re a gamer, and haven’t gotten Borderlands 2 yet, it is really an experience you wouldn’t want to miss out on. If you’re on PC, once the next Steam Sale rolls around with Borderlands 2 on sale, you should definitely get it.

Borderlands' sense of humor has always been a celebration of geek culture. It's a world full of allusions that are somehow equal parts reverence and satire, and is perhaps as well known for that as it is for its gun variety, psycho goons, and over the top freeze frame character introductions. The latest DLC, Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep, is no exception to that rule. You'll laugh, you'll cry, and you'll do morally questionable things like forcefully intoxicate dwarves in order to crush them and steal the beard-hair from their cold, dead bodies. You're going to have a wicked good time playing this, and for a good 10 to 20 hours at that.

As a vault hunter you've saved the world twice over now, and yet, as impossible as it seems, life somehow still goes on in the Borderlands. The villains have been vanquished, but so have many friends - including some that were very dear to our favorite preteen psychopath, Tina. In true geek fashion, Tina is dealing with her grief by turning to the one place she knows she can hide from a truth that she's not yet ready to face: Her imagination. Who hasn't been there? And so our plucky survivors trade guns for dice and set off to start their first campaign of Bunkers & Badasses. This of course makes Tina the Bunker Master, or B.M, a title only to be invoked in the most dire of circumstances.

Tiny Tina Borderlands 2 Quotes

Your journey starts by drifting into the Flamerock Refuge Docks, a land blighted by an evil and suspiciously handsome sorcerer. The sorcerer's tower looms menacingly over the small local village, and it's your quest to defeat him and restore peace to the land. Your adventure will be a veritable theme park of fantasy references ranging from Lord of the Rings to World of Warcraft as you set out to rescue the ubiquitous kidnapped princess. Ordinarily such a derivative plotline might feel cliché, but the game is self aware enough to make it feel like an inside joke, turning what could have been boring into something quite funny instead.

Borderlands 2: Tiny Tina's Assault On Dragon Keepn Keep

You'll encounter a host of new warriors and weapons to mow them down with, though the new mix of weapons isn't anything to write home about. Orcs, dragons and all manner of classic undead minions will slink out from the shadows to ambush you in force. Some of them will spring from unexpected places, like the Mimic that resembles a chest until you try to loot it: The worst nightmare of someone hooked on that box opening kick. It's similar to the main game's loot midgets, but slightly more terrifying as the container itself morphs into a creature resembling the classic 80's version of The Thing.
