I wonder if this game is any good..it looks promising but 505 games has made/published so much shovelware I'm hesitant about purchasing it before any review is up.

@AyeHaley I took the plunge so far its not to bad. The humor is very borderlands. Looks good the gamepad display could be larger. (or im getting old & blind). I agree with you about 505 games.If it was under £10 then go for it.
But if you like the top down style of game then go for it has coop play & game pad play as well. Do think its a bit of cheek at £13 to then have dlc as well.

But I have to say I am enjoying it.

@Anguspuss Thanks for your reply! I'll definitely consider it now. Did you finish it yet? How long was your playthrough of the game? If its less than 4-5 hrs I think I'll wait till it drops in price. (Even though I got eShop cash to burn, there isn't a lot on the Wii U eShop I don't already have or want. I hope we get Guacamelee, Steamworld Dig and Shovel Knight in Europe asap.)
Nothing worthwhile on the retail side till Hyrule Warriors in September so, bring it on indie/eShop games!
