What do you guys think of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel?
I don't like that claptrap is a class but whatever. Seems to be less memes, I've only seen one "You can haz" something
>Gbox puts memes in their game
>Endless shit for it
>Next game comes out, someone comments on memes
>Shill get out
Yeah because the only thing I'd say to promote a game is that there are memes in it
is it an improvement from BL2? Weapon scaling was shit and although co-op gameplay was fine there wasn't enough make it feel like you were on a team or working together at; it was mostly just a free-for-all.
Minor things improved. It's mainly the same game with new features. Like oZ tanks, more weapon types and special weapon types, more companies, (personally) I like the characters more, weapon scaling seems better
Haven't played co-op yet and am only level 6 so idk about it
MORE LIKE MEMESLANDS THE MEME MEMEQUEL RIGHT GUYS
BECAUSSE IT HAS SO MANY MEMES
GEARBOXES WRITERS ARE HACKS ALL THEY WRITE ARE MEEEMMEEES
OH MY GOD WHY ARE THERE SO MANY FUCKING EMEMS AND FAGGOT IN THIS GAME
WOW MEMERSLANDS 2 THE SJW-FAGGOEQUEL
The game is pretty fun. You're not going to be blown away by amazing writing or intriguing gameplay or anything like that but you never were with borderlands. It's a shoot-em-up with a fuck ton of loot. That's all there really is too it.
Guns to feel much more satisfying I've noticed.
Okay so what you're saying is that, you enjoyed the game but cant think up a reason why.
Least you could do is say "I liked this game because I am able to overlook all the shitty stuff" instead of this strange justification
BL2 fucked over a shit ton of the stuff BL1 did well. It became grindfest the game, and you couldn't hang onto a gun for more then 5 levels. Everything about the story was overall worse outside o the villain. Character balance somehow got worse, with the skilltrees being even more minor, or ineffective, in their effects.
Most of everything else is the same in quality
>buying anything connected to cuckold burch or gearbox in general
Anthony, you're going through a difficult time right now, but this is no way to 'cope' with losing your wife.
Who happens to have the same name as your sister plus an 'e'. What's the deal with that?
You fucked up son
>giving money to a man who is friendzoned by his wife
I've only played a few hours of it, it's not really as bad as I see people shooting it down for, but it's not the best thing I've ever played. I am having
funwith it though
I'm playing as claptrap, which I slightly regret but for some reason I've stopped finding the dialog with him annoying, his abilities are pretty neat, although make the game a bit easier than I would like.
Feel free to call me a viral marketer though, I pirated it and doubt I'll buy it ever.
I probably won't ever grab the pre-sequel, but I got the season pass for BL2 while it was on sale and have a friend to play it through with.
We're doing Assault on Dragon Keep first and I have feeling it completely overshadows the other 3 DLCs.
Are they at least decent?
it was one line meant to remind the player that your PC is still narrating a story and that characters outside of the moment can comment while also presenting a comment that is humorously out of character for Torgue
I'm right on the same boat.
Pirated it yesterday, played it for about 4 hours total. The whole "misogynistic this and that" bandwagon is full of shit. First character has made one lesbian reference in the hundred things she's said.
The new skag monsters are really annoying, what with splitting apart, and then having a delay before you can attack the smaller ones. Actually... most AI is pretty shitty. All enemies just stand in one place after they've begun shooting at you, so it's basically just popping heads one after the other. The only boss fight I've done was actually pretty alright.
To sum things up,
>Stupid AI stand in one spot/not challenging at all
>So far characters are interesting
>Weapons are varied/don't feel stale from the first game
>Loot system is a little overdone, as if being used as a crutch
>Driving is a pain in the ass and is pretty poorly done
>Gunslinger class feels incredibly underwhelming
>H20 drops with almost every AI kill, almost to the point of having added it been pointless but to allow more shit to pop out of bodies and lootable objects
>Mapping is pretty sloppy, and the low gravity thing they brought in means they're also trying to have players scale up cliff sides and buildings, but invisible roofs/walls happen often
All in all, maybe a solid 6/10. It's not terrible so far, but I sure as shit would never buy a copy.
Think about it this way, even if everyone on 4chan didn't buy it, they would lose around 100,000 sales at most. And thats being INSANELY generous with my estimate of 4chans numbers
Fact is too many people just are able to overlook the flaws/their brain doesn't care about them.
Seems like the Australians write an okay joke, then Burch adds to it and gets cringy.
The whole misogyny thing everyone likes to point out would've probably ended much better at
instead of everything after. Other htan that the game is pretty bleh, but I'm not bombarded with as much cringe as BL2.
Other than that, pretty much this >>267971503
Definitely not a buy, and this anon felt ripped off even when they preordered their BL2 key off Russians.
Most games have pretty shitty AI. I did like that they dodge for cover when you start shooting them sometimes, although it seems pretty on and off. The O2 stuff does feel a little stupid, with it not ever running out and everything dropping O2.
So far I've found a few neat hidden areas like some sort of boss in a lava fall, which was neat, but as you said it's sometimes hard to get to places because seemingly for no reason you'll just start falling back down
It's simply an alright game in every aspect so far, there's nothing standoutish about it.
As I said I was being insanely generous with the numbers.
It's probably more like 10,000
Also that's still barely any profit lost, and wouldn't really effect them in much of any way.
That one character making the lesbian mention only talks about how she wants to have sex with the woman behind the bar. That is all she talks about. All she talks about is women she has slept with, and a woman who she wants to sleep with.
This woman behind the bar is also been nothing but a very promiscuous bartender for the last two games and is now a full blown engineer out of nowhere. And most of what she talks about is the woman who wants to sleep with her.
I find the writing to be flat, the characters to be one to, sometimes two dimensional. Further, the gameplay itself is borderlands with low gravity, and high elevation.
That is, everything is just barely out of your reach without throwing a grenade at your feet. Invisible walls, again, plague the game, though this time worse than ever considering the crux of low gravity is getting to places by increased elevation, which they restrict whenever possible.
The gunplay is copy paste. The characters are a little more boring. The actual environments are giant swaths of nothing where they have enemies pop out of. The graphical pop-in is atrocious, just as before.
I give the game a 4/10. I got very bored after about 5 hours and deleted the pirated copy. 5 is average, this is below average. This is, 'I care so little I won't even shit on it' levels of boredom here. I wish I cared enough to shit on it.
I didn't wanna buy this one because of what a gigantic cunt Anthony Burch is but damn I wanna play as Nisha so bad.
Western-themed shit is awesome. There needs to be more good western games.
Playing borderlands is more fun than whining about borderlands, or reading other people whine about borderlands
'weeeergh they make jokes they aren't funny werrrrr I'm sensitive to people doing things I don't like and have to find people to argue with about these thing to help me rationalize my lonely existence werrrrrgh how dare they upset me the king of vidya in my very domain referencing the most befouled of internet culture, le reddit muflips shop da wap barrel roll double rainbow pedo bear rage guy grumpy cats HE weeeerrrrgh I'll never create a single worthwhile thing with my time in my whole life and it scares me weeeerhghh sniff sniff suck my dick faggot you are one if the dulermurnabbi SJWS (or SHE-JEWS) trying to RUIN MY FUCKINF LIFE LIKE MY MOM AND SCHOOL AND SOCIETY AND EVERYONE ELSE werrrrrrrrrrrg theyd made this game more like super mario rpg'
You guys should seek professional help, life can get better maybe
Played in multiplayer with tunneling programs that is.
This game is - gameplay wise - weak. The driving is more shit, the combat is the same, the actual conduction of A to B is shit due to invisible walls and elevation that is almost within your reach, and flat writing.
I thought the inclusion of Australian sensibilities would be interesting, but it boils down to, "Here are some funny words that Australian people say - isn't that funny?"
so far im loving it.
the enemies dont feel like bullet sponges anymore, they realized memes were terrible and got rid of them, there arent as many crappy fodder loot items, and the low gravity makes exploration a lot more fun.
that being said, the first part of the game had tons of sjw bullshit shoe-horned in, but is seems like it slowed down a bit after you get into the game.
i hated BL2, but im loving this one
i lost the little interest i had in the game when they said claptrap would be a playable class; who even though that was good idea?
I've had enough of the annoying little cunt when he was just an NPC.
You get boosts to weapons/sheilds randomly (random weapon or shield boost or melee boost) if you go down a certain tree, it's pretty alright. His abilitycan summon a rocket launcher thing, a lillith clone that applies corrosive damage and flies around, and a few others like a magic one that I does something (I have no clue). There's also shit that makes you bounce everywhere or go into gunzerker mode or go invisible or use a giant axe to kill things. It's alright, just not the best
I only played bits and peices (read: hours and hours of stoned bro time) playing bl2 and it was disgustingly repetitive but as a multiplayer experience very refreshing in just how fun working together was
That and more backtracking than dk64 and shit shit driving awful and muh guns
also found it to have some real silly moments and what else can you really hope for mayne[/spolier]
Like I said man. I want full health, what can I do while I get full health.
I was also surprised at the increase in your character's voicing their opinions concerning the matter at hand. I liked that.
>dyke npc hits on me
>another quest shoehorning her lesbianism
Thank god this is allowed. My cock is rock hard right now.
Honestly? I was expecting Dragon Keep to be complete ass but ended up having a lot of fun with it. Torque's DLC was a blast, literally and figuratively. Pirate Booty was alright, Shade is a creepy fuck and I'd rail Captain Scarlett if I knew there wouldn't be fear of her killing me after. Hammerlock's Hunt was pretty meh, the main antagonist reminded me of a shittier Doc Venture.
Gaige is best character, haven't played with Kreig much.
Doesn't do anything for me. I never got why people get off on other people kissing. If it was a dude and a chick, I'd be like, 'Fucking go home, you sweaty cunts'. If it's a chick and a chick, I go, "Fucking go home, you sweaty cunts'.
Nobody wants to see you drunken dry hump
The writing is absolute garbage all the way through. More often than not I'd rather kill the questgiver than whatever target they give me.
SJW shit that I get to read all day all over the internet already and awful references are fucking everywhere. Why do they dedicate so much playtime to shitty long drawn out sequences of characters making shitty jokes? I'd rather they cut all that out and let me actually play the game.
The lowgrav shit is a bloody failure too. There are way too many invisible walls and little ledges that you just fall through.
The gameplay itself is Borderlands, as you'd expect from DLC.
Seriously fuck the writing. Just switching to another language and disabling subtitles is starting to get really tempting.
Anyone got any tips for Athena? I'm going with the shield centered tree since I'm playing coop, but it doesn't really seem worth it since there are never enough enemies on the screen to make it worth using. Enemies that keep respawning out of little hidey holes are really killing the shield ability.
If it was guy on girl this would be completely unacceptable
I got to 25 light, or whatever, and I would probably have played it more if it didn't go
>you know how you just pop in and out of people's games, and never really have much interaction beyond that? You know how the game doesn't implement a way to get a team together to do stuff, but just randomly assigns people for missions?
>Now do it. in a group, in a way that circumvents the abstract system where we encourage you to not organize anything. Find randoms in town, randomly add them to friends, with the message - THIS IS JUST IN CASE WE WANT TO DO A RAID WHICH IS IMPOSSIBLE WITHOUT HAVING 3 FRIENDS PLAYING THAT YOU KNOW IN REAL LIFE
And if you have 3 friends in real life, it is super duper hard, which is cool, but it is otherwise impossible or involves adding everyone in town to your friends and sending out invites to every person on your list to get a raid going.
Wait though is Athena a lesbian?
That might be a Steam Family Share tryout for me other than flat out completely ignoring it
I have a weakness for that shit and her designs cute as fuck
throw me a fucking bone
>Nobody wants to see you drunken dry hump
foreign international students at my university are notorious for just making out and dry humping each other on campus; I mean surely they can find a room and do it in private instead of in the the middle of campus where hundreds and thousands of people go by?
Max out Xiphos, then max out Phalanx. Shit is bonkers. Haven't really messed with her third tree yet since the aforementioned two have such ridiculous synergy.
The main storyline is okay, I barely did any side-quest nor did I listened to NPC talking, so I don't really get the hate.
The basketball quest was fun though, the game needs more silly short quests like that.
Gaige is best
Its a shame she falls in love with a gay black man
I got to 27 light, and played for a couple days more and when the Iron Banner came up I saw for what it truly was
>Everyone higher does more damage
>See level 5
>Level 5 kills me
I guess Bungie lied again.
not that guy but im about to beat the game
over all not much has changed, but its definatly not as grindy anymore. a good gun will last you for a long ass time, and you seem to level up faster too. i will say that the writing has reached an all time low, worse than the first game.
>Jack did nothing wrong
>lilith and moxy are the true villains, fucking up a mans life for no tangible reason other than "you kinda seem like a dick"
>roland is too beta to stand up for himself against liliths bullshit, hes clearly against what shes doing to jack but doesnt stop it
>Burch ruined tourge and made him a total pussy
all in all, gameplay wise its a total improvement, a slight one tho, not as giant of an improvement from bl1 to bl2, but theres clearly and improvement
>i hope they fire burch now
The large portion of the dialogue in the first 5 or so hours is the equivilant of you 5th grade math textbook, where they had a picture of 6 kids, which innocuously was made up of one blonde white kid, one asian kid, two black kids, one indian and one fat kid of any race or creed. They would all wear a solid color T shirt of different colors and be doing something boring.
And you'd look and be like - damn they're pushing hard to show how much this well adjusted math loving group loves to be together.
It's sort of just like, 'holy shit, trying real fucking hard at shit that I wasn't aware that anyone gave a shit about'.
Dude this whole wife shit people are talking about is just /v/ talking out it's ass. Don't get your hopes up. Maybe he'll be sadder for a more believable reason, but just keep on hoping.
This game plays 85% worse if you're Australian and understand all the Australian lingo and references. It's like being being from Texas and every cutscene or audio recording is similar to this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJ_PwD0gOSo just to appeal to the international audience.
I'm finding it hard to believe that all the shitty writing goes back to one person
>burch's 'wife' left him
He was already pretty unstable to begin with, is he finally gonna snap?
I will never understand the hate, nigga is hilarious. Best class and best thing to come out of Borderlands.
Hammerlock is gay, and it's mentioned about as much as Dumbledore until the DLC, I think.
They took characters and assigned them as gay or straight. Which is both retarded and okay on different levels, but it would be difficult to break down.
That's what I'm saying.
I've spent more time than I want to around you awful people and understanding that they were going
>LOOK, HE SAID BILLABONG
makes it incredibly obnoxious.
classes are interesting
writing is 50/50 ok and offensively bad
terrain is boring and unvaried
driving is literally the holocaust
i'm playing on ps3 because that's what my friends are on, and it's borderline unplayable with the dropped frames and tear, and that's from a consolefag
Just as bad as the SJW boogieman you bitch about. He was saying it in an incredibly pathetic way in order to try and fit in with the women he was talking to.
Because I'm guessing you're an idiot, I'll reiterate: in the context of the conversation, he is painted as pathetic for trying to drop that line in order to fit in with women.
At the end of interviews he akwardly stares then looks away. Before he had no problem and would have a dumb look of confidence. That was fine back then but now its a look of shame.
>Game repeatedly tells you that playing as Claptrap is a retarded idea before the character select
>Claptrap has a full skill-tree, dialogue, and animations
Why the fuck would you put so much time and effort into a joke character that's only occupying a character slot that could've been something cool? It simply cannot be possible that "LEL DUBSTEP AND MAYMAYS" fueled the want to create this as a playable character... right?
I'm watching some black guy stream the game and he said that it's good although it's just more of the same.
If that's the case I might buy because I haven't played any of these games in years. Last time I played any borderlands game was around the time 1 had it's second DLC.
I'll have you know that I have been a memer since memebase first opened, and I know every meme that has ever existed. You think this game has a lot of memes? We'll see about that. I know about boxxy and inb4 while I bet this game only has things like confession bear and future fry.
I genuinely wish that we had people who were good writers on this game. It has all the makings of something I would normally find fun, but delivers them so goddamn poorly.
>Fucking robot class
>Hardcore heavy machinegunner
>Sword and Shield Gladiator
>First Person Shooter/RPG with tons of enemy variety
>Lots of varied music, colorful characters, and an environment that uses goddamn color saturation
>Absolutely ruined and wasted because of utterly horrible dialogue, horribly written lore, enemies being exclusively damage sponges with no degree of challenge to them other than how quickly you can chop through the sponginess
I fucking hate Gearbox so much.
First of all:
If you want t buy it on Steam dont buy it now.
Gearboy is going to pump the game with DLC the next few months.
Wait for next year and the summer sale and get the Master Ultimate pack for 5 bucks or so
I like to think this was the Australian writers putting it in there just to fuck with him.
Lesbians! There's a time and place for everything but not NOW.
It's basically a floaty Borderlands 2 with new skill trees.
Seeing as I got many hours of enjoyment out of that, I'm having a really good time so far. If you didn't enjoy Borderlands 2 for any reason, you'll have the same problems with the new game. Otherwise, tentatively worth the full price depending on how long it turns out to be, definitely worth full price if you're playing with others.
It's available for ~$45 on GMG, or at least it was earlier today. A little upset that I missed that, but fuck it.
Not going to buy it.
Not going to play it.
Obvious Cash grab is obvious.
Borderlands 2 wasn't any sort of an improvement over the first one.
I haven't even beaten the second game but reading the wikia's summary of the plots, some of the characters' bios like Kreig and Zero, the story is only interesting if they focused on character lore. I get the appeal of B2 after 3 hours of forcing myself to play the game but seeing Borderlands prequel, I don't see the appeal of its gun and grind if you're just doing it again
I personally found the varied environments, choice of music, and more vertical skill trees to be clear improvements.
The "raid bosses" introduced in the DLCs were either fucking retarded or I'm just exceptionally terrible at the game.
I haven't played Borderlands in a few months, so going back into the game with new maps and skills is neat. If you had just finished playing either game for an extended period of time, though, then I refuse to believe anyone would get $60 worth out of this game.
O2 kits replacing relics as equips and the whole boosting mechanic turned out to be surprisingly entertaining, but still wouldn't be enough if you just got done with another Borderlands game.
I really think $60 is a bit unfair. It really feels like this was originally planned to be Borderlands 2 DLC, but got extended at some point in development. I would have really appreciated a rework of the in-game menus. They're still a fucking pain to navigate with a mouse and keyboard.
The game only warns you about that stuff because "everybody hates Claptrap" is a
memewithin the game. He's not a "joke" character in the sense that he's only supposed to be a novelty though, he's a fully fleshed out character to be played.
>Why the fuck would you put so much time and effort into a joke character that's only occupying a character slot that could've been something cool?
Are you shitting me? Claptrap is the most complex character in the game. This is Borderlands, so that doesn't say a whole lot, but he's by far the most interesting character to play as. Your other options are:
>a fucking shield
Claptrap's random skill at least does something of a job at breaking up the monotony of the game.
>get called out for shilling
>g-guise im not shilling s-s-s-shitlords!
Seriously Burch you'd sell more copies if you worried less about memes and just offered your wife as pre order DLC, just speeds up the process
Torque or whatever his name is is the most annoying character I've encountered in years.
Also, Lawbringer is fun cause her special ability is literally aimbot which is nice cause now I don't even need to think while playing, not that I'm enjoying myself but I got shit all to do.
I thought Torgue was hilarious when he was introduced in the second BL2 DLC.
His continued presence after the end of that, though, has been substantially less than pleasant. His dialogue in this game is particularly upsetting.
Happy to see more Jack, though. Too bad I'm autistic as fuck and have to complete all the side quests as I go in my first playthough, so it's taking fucking forever to progress.
It's actually one of the better ones in the game because of how varied it is, too bad it's random.
You can use most of the vault hunter skills at random from the previous two games, slightly tweaked to actually be useful. Lilith's for example, instead of making the player go into the phasewalk, summons a minion claptrap that uses the blight powers against enemies like Deathtrap. Zer0's keeps you invisible the entire time even if you attack.
Plus you have more action packages to unlock but whatever.
She a gladiator now.
And under Anthony Burch's SJWiness command.
once i got past the first actually questing area i found myself to be having a ton of fun
the speedbike thingy is a ton of fun to use
seeing jack slowly descend into madness is great
new laser weapon type is cool
Oz system is really cool once you start finding good Oz gear
the only things i have to nitpick is the amount of sjw at the start of the game and how you can still hear just fine while outside of an air bubble (but they did make sure to be able to only let you cause burning inside of air bubbles, their attention to detail is spotty throughout)
Does this anger you Burch?
Then you must seek help son.
He forgot to mention the giant axe (psycho/krieg action skill counterpart) also releases an explosive nova when activated. Also, I think that one restores all your health when activated.
He also forgot to mention the bouncy one makes all the other players constantly bounce too, it also deflects bullets according to what I read. I can't confirm that though, as I haven't gotten it.
All of the results are dependent on the current situation on skill activation (it will also show you the "reasoning"), so if your friends are low on health but you're fine, you'll more than likely get the medic result which turns your gun into a medic gun, similar to the TF2 medic's.
Some of his skills also unlock more abilities for his action skill.
but the artist must have realized she was already topless the whole time
>Playing borderlands is more fun than whining about borderlands, or reading other people whine about borderlands
You obviously haven't played Borderlands.
>skill trees are half the size of BL2
I'm sure extra playthroughs with even more bullet sponge enemies (why would you want this) will come with the DLC.
BTW we're confirmed to have some posh black bitch and a Handsome Jack clone as DLC classes.
It's a good pirate!
This is the first Borderlands I actually like..somehow..a little.
It has something, that feel when you come home from work, tired as fuck and you dont want to play anything that reqiuers to much attention.
You just turn it on and play and when bored you quit and forget you ever played it.
Mindless fun, it has that for it...
Just beat it. Ending was fucking dumb as shit.
>you know realize that Anthony must have thought he had written comedy gold with that tweet
Roland, Lilith, and Moxxi betray the fuck out of him because they think he'll go crazy with power or whatever once all of his plans are finished. in the vault an artifact beams the informationa bout the Warrior from BL2 into his mind and by this point he's pretty much insane. Then Lilith shows up out of nowhere and punches the artifact into his face which is why he has the scar. Then he manages to get out and takes over Hyperion by killing the CEO.
No, even dumber.
>Jack sends you to the Vault to get whatever's inside
>It's more generic alien shit with nothing explained and a big humanoid alien boss
>The artifact it was guardian was a floating Borderlands symbol
>Jack uses it and it fills his mind with knowledge of the Warrior
>Lilith teleports in, punches the artifact into Jack's face and teleports out
>Jack is swears revenge on all vault hunters and wants to awaken the Warrior
>fast forward back to the present
>Lilith says for everyone to shoot Athena because edgy
>The bullets stop
>Alien out of nowhere and says WAR IS COMING and credits
Moxxie suddenly being a super scientist/engineer/mechanic and knowing everything about Jack's giant Destroyer-powered space laser was quite a feat of retardation.
>Lilith says for everyone to shoot Athena
Why? Like literally what did she do wrong
if anything this is Lilith's fault, as usual. Like honestly the entire list of events in BL2 probably wouldn't happen if she didn't do that thing with the artifact out of nowhere.
>hurr durr if you played the others you'd know stairs weren't a problem
>oh wait they're his greatest enemy.
Because edgy. Lilith was a huge cunt from start to finish.
What I don't fucking get is why Lilith didn't just kill Jack right there. But then again the only thing that matters in Borderlands writing is how gay the characters are.
I just watched the ending. Why did she just teleport in, punch, then teleport out? What was the point of that? Why didn't the player attack her. Why didn't she straight up kill Jack?
Because EVERYTHING WRONG WITH BORDERLANDS IS LILITH'S FAULT.
She's a bitchy Siren who can't fucking get off her period and just does the most insane shit.
>In the first game she wanted the vault to expand off of her powers anyway
>Second Game she's a total dick, tosses herself at jack, and can't freaking do anything right.
>per-sequal, she's pretty much the reason why the second game even happens like it does
Roland should have just tossed her ass towards the curb ages ago.
Didn't Lilith originally go to pandora to find another Siren that was apparently there
in fact what the fuck happened to the original 4 vault hunter's motives, like Brick finding his sister
I think she was trying to grab it, but in her stupidity, forgot to open her hand, and made a fist, and when trying to grab it, punched it instead. Not wishing to stick around in shame, she poofed away to go and cry at being useless, yet again.
Well Moxxi is after her whole relation with him apparently but beyond that, Jack wasn't even really an important person yet. Zarpedon was the only one who had any incentive to do Jack in because she was alien enlightened.
It still is. They just get to play the STOP OPPRESSING ME card.
It's like a nigger stealing something. If you saw some piece of white trash obviously pocketing shit, you can call that asshole out and throw rocks at him. If you do the same to the black guy everyone looks at you like you are a fucking racist until you yank the candy out of his pants.
so jack became the biggest asshole just because a bitch left a mark on his face?
>Lilith says for everyone to shoot Athena because edgy
lilith is truly a cunt.
>Alien out of nowhere and says WAR IS COMING
AN ANCIENT EVIL IS AWOKEN!
boderlands writing has always been stale/shit. but this takes it to a new level.
Funny how I played the first one and never finished it.
Then played a little of part 2 a friend bought and stopped, that was more than enough for me to feel for the game. Nothing special, just preferred Falout 3 and NV better.
it's a combination of being driven insane by knowledge being beamed into your head and getting a good part of your face seared because some bitch decided to punch a smoldering hot artifact into your face.
And remember it isn't your typical 'cool guy scar'
I didn't play BL2 but I played the first.
Pirated this and I notice there have been zero weapon type additions since the first game.
Three fucking games with mountains of DLC and it's the same fucking shit. Glad I never bought these games.
more companies? Bandit has been replaced by Scav and they have the same attributes. Only laser weapons are new, but they're like e-tech and seem to be lacklustre.
Doesn't seem like that. I'm only level 8, but there seems to be only few addons (you can buy 30 min buffs from Moxi and there is an item grinder, eridium - now moonstones - has more uses (you pay for the buffs and can use it with the grinder). Enemies are different, yet the same.
The guns are as unsatisfying as BL2, but the boss encounters could be better designed.
The most irritating thing is how the first NPC you encounter shoves in your face that she's lesbian. Mr. Torgue tries to hit on her, gets rejected and yells "friiiiendzoooone", but later apologizes to the player for that because it's misogynistic. It's so cringeworthy that it's almost unbearable.
The additions like low gravity on O2 are completely gimmicky.
Definitely pirate it first and see for yourself.
when someone shills on /v/, nobody shills
it's just another nigga unpaid
actually they did some other shit.
Hand guns were compressed, meaning there's no technical type distinction between revolvers and repeaters.
Eridian guns were replaced with "E-tech" guns in BL2, which instead of using renewable batteries, uses twice as much ammo for energy based attacks. BL2 also added Slag element, which is an element that, when it procs, doubles the damage of other elements.
Presequel replaces(?) E-tech with Lasers which now use their own ammo. Cryo is added as an element which freezes enemies. I'm not sure if Slag is in this though.
The laser weapons aren't even noteworthy.
5+ years and they couldn't come up with fun new weapons except fucking generic lasers? What about a gun modifier that makes the bullets bounce between foes? What about a fucking grenade launcher or a flamethrower weapon type? What about a gun that creates damaging AOE fields?
Zero fucking innovation with a system that desperately needs it. 87 bazillion useless fucking guns.
I keep failing these jumps with the car in Serenity's Waste trying to get to Concordia. I use the boost and get up to speed but I keep falling short of the other side. What am I not doing to make these jumps?
>timesplitters, a game that came out 7 years ago, has more fun and varied guns than a current gen title who advertises how many guns it has
to be fair most of the things you are looking for come with unique/legendary weapons which can have drastically weird functions such as weird spreads, special bullet properties and what have you.
Good luck finding legendaries though
Tourge Assault Rifles work like this depending on. They are shit thought.
>What about a gun that creates damaging AOE fields?
Quite a few legendary's do this.
Problem is all of the 'cool' shit is locked towards legendarys, and GUESS HOW OFTEN YOU SEE THAT SHIT IN NORMAL GAMEPLAY!
Fuck that legendary bullshit. Throw in the cool stuff into the modifier pool and let people have fun with the core game.
Imagine if there was a possibility for your gun to have something like UT's bio rifle instead of bullets. Or Turok's cerebral bore.
That one was a bitch for me too. I find that you need to boost for a little while before making the the jump. Line yourself up against the left wall while doing it and you can make it although I prefer to avoid that jump so make sure you go to Concordia afterwards to get to the fast travel there.
Sadly, the staff in charge of Borderlands are a bunch of lazy fuckers who seem to want their game to play out like a bland MMO even though they have no reason/profit to gain from it. Shit like the Cobra drop rate and loot nerfs show that they would rather keep Borderlands as a grindfest rather than a fun shooter.
>find orange weapon in pre sequel
>its a fucking flakker, directly from bl2
>it has the same useless shitty aoe attack
they just copied bl2 items and added some new ones. I honestly expected more in terms of guns
God fucking damn, dude, take a break from your crusade. Some of you morons are worse than the SJW shit you spew on about.
Everyone keeps bringing that scene up out of context, when it's pretty fucking obviously played for laughs when Torgue comes back pathetically apologizing after being shot down. It's making fun of that shit, and the joke is going right over your head.
The only valid complaint anyone has when it comes to TPS and SJWs shit is a couple of characters reminding you they're lesbians too much. What the fuck is wrong with you people?
>bullets bounce between foes
some classes can specc for that
they were in the first as special weapons (e.g. the Jackal), however 2 ruined that with Torgue weapons
>almost like it;s a glorified DLC.
It is. I was in the Gearbox forums for a short time when 2 launched, going to the moon station, playing as a claptrap and ice element were heavily requested from the community. I'm certain that they started it as DLC first and decided to make it a standalone game after the huge community requests. That's why no one should buy this shit.
>This woman behind the bar is also been nothing but a very promiscuous bartender for the last two games and is now a full blown engineer out of nowhere.
Hodunks are naturally good with machines.
Dont' forget that for a time they actually had 'raid bosses' that you could only fight once a day. And despite this said bosses don't even drop loot worth bothering for. Like the ones that drop maybe like 6-10 seraph crystals which you need like at least a hundred for seraph weapons
and the seraph weapons were shit anyways
>tfw i expected some chocolate 70s styled qt with a bob/something looking like Lana from Archer
>fugly ass cunt
You could make more attractive characters in Dragon Age character creation
Moxxi being a gifted mechanic makes sense anyways considering her kids are also gifted mechanics.
her barkeep persona is only a facade. She's just as much of a redneck as the rest of her family, she's just pretty good at hiding it. Moxxi had to be pretty savvy in that sort of stuff to survive on Pandora anyways.
To be fair, if Scooter can get Sanctuary to fly, I don't think Moxxi understanding how a space station works is that far out of the realm of possibility. Since she's much smarter than Scooter.
-Ran her own combat arena
-Dated and chances are stole a lot of info from Jack about Hyperion
-Gave birth and taught Scooter and Ellie the in's and outs of the Pandroa tech, allowing them to run and control the Catch-A-Ride, getting sanctuary running after Hyperion left it to rot, and assist in bringing down the Crimson Lance.
-She herself uses guns based around hyperion tech.
This is actually the only fucking logical thing about the enitre ending.
First borderlands Scooter says he was named after his passed sister.
So all we know is Moxxi had a daughter named scooter at one point, who's more then likely dead.
Honestly, real talk here:
Borderlands has decent characters, and a decent foundation. But holy shit is it all fucking underplayed to hell and back as it went on for shitty ass pop culture and 'with the times' movements.
BL2 goes over how they used to date and I think Presequel takes place After this affair as Moxxi doesn't really want to have anything to do with him.
Haven't gotten much farther than getting to Concordia though. Just got done listening to Janey's aggressive lesbianism
It is painfully obvious the everything is balanced around playing multiplayer with people I cant count how many times I have gotten a second win or reentered a boss area only to get gunned down again before I could even shoot
>They were all looking for the same person
I guess this would make sense for everyone but Brick because why would he try to kill his sister
kind of funny though that their purposes for coming to pandora were kind of forgotten. The only siren that Lilith ever really bothers to acknowledge is Angel.
Oh hahah this is reminding me how the rest of BL2 is also her fault because she came in despite being told not to
What crusade? I don't give a shit about gamergate and all that crap. This is simply bad writing.
I don't want any agenda pushed into video games. I'm the consumer, and if individuals developers feel like there is an equality problem please sort it out behind the scenes like every other company does. I don't give a shit. I just want to play games. I simply will not buy the products the companies are offering if they try to paint me as misoginystic for using "friendzoned". It's hard to believe that this is ment as a harmless joke knowing the documented backround of the writer.
It's also not funny at all.
I feel the same way, which is really dissapointing, I'm the only one of my friends who's willing to invest time in farming and replaying the BL games, so I'm mostly playing solo.
It's weird. Some of the lines regarding them seem to imply that they dated after Jack went nuts. Since she mentions how he seemed like a nice guy until he set a bunch of people on fire.
Writer is a guy who is in an open relationship with his wife. Who admits he has "no game" and can't get laid.
Basically it's written by the types of guys you see in videos watching their wives fuck other guys. The emasculation and feminism / femdom shit probably makes his dick hard.
So, literally everything bad that happened in those 2 games, happened because of a stupid woman? Oh man Burch, after all those feminism insertions and SJW bullshit, this is the conclusion.
All anthony burch tweets
MRAs are dogging me for being in an open relationship by calling me a "cuckold." This is my fav thing; I feel like a Jane Austen novel
Open relationship theater "Honey I cheated on you" ... "Hahahah" "ahhahah" *curtain*
dude can't admit he's just gay as shit.
she didn't leave him
he discovered he was bi or something so now he sucks dicks and gets fucked
part of this is they have an open relationship, meaning she fucks guys or something
basically omega cuckbeta
You think so burch?
Because i was looking forward to the threads, while i already keow how shit the game would be.
All I need to know:
Does this game have the same stupid exponential curve as BL2? (e.g guns at 50 are like 10 times more powerful than 45, instead of 10% more)
I can look past the silly writing and characters because at its core Borderlands is a pretty fun game for just shooting stuff, and BL2 made it so fucking tedious if you didn't get a gun drop every level past about 30 because every enemy just turns into a gigantic meat shield.
>'open relationship' aka she fucks dudes and he does nothing
>he comes out as bi
totally normal, not a beta cuckold eating nigger creampies out of his wife. Get with the times grampas, sucking dicks straight out of your wifes twat is normal and destroying the patriarchy
the series has always done this.
Damage scales exponentially based on your level as well. Meaning at lvl 3 it's hard coded you do 1/10th the dmg to lvl 5 monsters etc.
Basically leveling is the only real scaling in the game and the rest is just imaginary. It's extremely lazy but most people are too stupid to notice and every zone is scaled to your level so it seems normal.
Basically the RPG elements are imaginary.
BL1 had progressive scaling and BL2 had exponential.
Your equipment in BL1 didn't become horrendously obsolete in 5 levels. Maybe a little underpowered but definitely usable. meanwhile you have stats like this in BL2 (Overlevel 8 is effectively 80)
He will be one of those weird 45 year old "comes out" as gay guys who ends up sucking dicks in park bathrooms and shit. You can spot them a mile away. It will just be a matter of time.
Not just stats
I'm talking gameplay wise
If you are lvl 3 and face lvl 5 monsters in BL series, you do a scaled down damage.
The difference in levels creates a dmg multiplier, so higher level monsters than you become bullet sponges. It's hard to notice because everything scales to your level but it's hard coded in that things say 2 levels lower than your character, take 10x damage. etc.
The game takes scaling to the highest degree I've ever seen. There is really nothing of substance towards actual "rpg" balance in terms of level. If you are 1-2 levels lower it's a bullet sponge fest, if you are 1-2 levels higher it's a cakewalk.
BL2 takes this to an extreme. The Overpower shit lets enemies of super high levels come out for 'the challenge'
You can get enemies that are 20+ levels above you.
Damage you deal to enemies that are at least 20 levels above you is reduced by 99.2%
That wasn't strictly what I meant but thanks for the info anyway.
I mean like in the graph, in BL1 there's a 10% difference between a gun of level 40 and 45, and 10% between a gun of 45 and 50, roughly linear. You could conceivably use a well-rolled gun from the low 40s at 50 and survive.
In BL2 the difference is nearly 90% between 40 and 45, and another 80% between 45 and 50, making those levels fucking boring to level through. It isn't helped by the fact that enemy health scales even faster than the guns, so even getting a new gun every level will still result in enemies dying slower. You would be gimping your damage by nearly two thirds if you used a well-rolled gun from the low 40s at 50 in this game.
Does the pre-sequel pull this shit or does it make guns linear?
basically the point is
It's a FPS disguising itself as being an RPG by adding levels to everything and implementing some of the addictive mechanics of rpgs. But it lacks any real core RPG things like actual interesting builds, you get one fucking skill for instance, and the guns really aren't that varied.
The gunplay is very weak as well. Everything scales based on level so there is really nothing of substance to exploring or anything.
The game is just shit. Most people won't notice these mechanic things since just shoot shit, but if you actually see how things work (fighting higher level enemies or lower level ones, aka off the path) you realize immediately how shit and lazy the scaling is done.
Yes, the enemy is higher level than me so it takes 10x the normal bullets regardless of stats, build, or anything.
the gun system doesnt matter
raw character level has a scaling factor on your damage dealt in BL1 that is insane
IF you shoot something below your level it dies in 1 shot to anything
If you shoot something above your level it is a bullet sponge
literally gun doesn't mean shit. Increasing in level by 1 is more important than a gun in BL1.
Well that's fucking dropped it for me then.
I even had a bit of fun in BL2 at the lower levels, and I basically just stopped at about 40 because of the massive tedium of killing the most basic enemies.
>Wants to live on her own, but we still love each other
Got news for you Burch
Just how fucking beta is this asshole?
>finally get a legendary drop from enemy in BL2
>look at stats
>Im lvl 25
>gun is lvl 19
>get to next story mission area
>fighting lvl26/27 enemies and gun is doing fuck all to them
Blech. Im so fucking glad I found out about save editors for BL2. Can just tweak all my goodguns I find to not be shit by bumoing up their levels when they get too low for my characters lvl.
Also made it so much easier to hook up with friends.
>oh you are lvl.27? Gimme a sec to edit all my shit down to 27 and Ill join your game.
Turns out reddit has no idea who Burch is. Is it really full of mindless consumers, buying like obedient pidgeons, or is /v/ just full of shit, no one else cares about?
