Since this is all digital, it must be even more then?
I was surprised at how good it looks on the switch, the cartoonish art style seems to age fairly well.

I guess it's my turn to add the obligatory comment that always gets posted on this game: Only the first game is actually on the Switch cart.

The other games require a 42GB download.


Edit: Got my threads crossed. The all digital release is 14GB, 22GB, and 14GB respectively.

The 42GB for the physical release also accounts for a 6GB download for the Borderlands 1 GOTY DLC.

Oops, totally missed that this is the eShop version. I'll edit my first post.

It's 14GB for Borderlands 1 all digital. If this was the physical release, there's another 6GB download.

Borderlands 2 is around 22GB and the Pre-Sequel is 14GB.

So if you wanted to have them all installed at once, the minimum you would need is a 64GB SD card.

What's the best order to play these in? Anyone know if the load times are reasonable? Sometimes these switch ports really seem to tax the hardware

I'd recommend you play them in the order they were released: Borderlands, Borderlands 2, then the Pre-Sequel. The in-game events of the pre-sequel technically take place between the first two games, but it plays out and tells the story under the assumption you played the other two first. I wouldn't say you'd really gain a lot jumping to the pre-sequel right after the first one (although the moon mechanics actually make it my favorite of the series).

I'd also say play the first one first if you intend to play it at all. I can't say the nostalgia of that one will be there for those playing these for the first time. I still love it, but it's very dated compared to the other two. The in-game menus and some QOL things are different.

Adding this now that I've played a bit of all 3 on the Switch: BL1 & 2 run great. Framerate keeps up, machine isn't taxed. Looks great, the art style plays well to lower resolutions. The Pre-Sequel did have my fans kicked up during the intro part, but I'd expect that. It felt a smidge less smooth overall, but I'm used to playing on a proper gaming PC. If you love these games it's worth it for the portability and local split-screen co-op.

Anyone know of a strategy game, sort of like Civilization, but based in modern times where you are the current president of a country and have to deal with modern day issues like war, trade, diplomacy, and running domestic politics?
