Put the bucket back on so I can fuck him.
YOU'RE GONNA BE SCREAMING
Stupid fucking enemies.
What's with the heads?
How did they become like this?
Why are you guys gays?
Defend that design, if you're so great.
Why complain about the Goliath? What about the burning psycho who's head is just a burning skull and probably doesn't even contain a brain anymore
Unless bordershart 3 retconned their design, burning psychos are wearing skulls as helmets, it's not their own exposed skull.
They're still on fire.
A lot of living things are on fire and roaming that hellscape of a planet. There are flying reptiles made of fire and even lava golems. One of the few consistent worldbuilding threads is Pandora (eridium specifically) is mutagenic. Psychos came from overexposure to the stuff even before BL2, It's not outside the game's own loose consistency for some psychos to develop a heightened resistance to immolation.
Ok but a head popping out a bit is too much?
Now you're arguing with someone else, I never weighed in on the Goliath topic.
yes you did, stop backpedaling
They're mutants or some shit
They're not only incredibly inbred but they're also constantly experimented on if krieg is anything to go buy
Every other bandit is easy enough to pop dead in a headshot or two but shooting these guys in the head pisses them off and shrinks their head hitbox, making them more dangerous without completely denying the opportunity for headshot crits, which would just be frustrating
Plus letting them kill enemies like that levels them up to drop more loot once you kill them, but they get much harder.
it's slag, I don't gotta explain shit
THAT’S A LOT OF NUTS!
In Borderlands 1 midgets and enemies like badass psychos were result of people interacting with eridian artifacts. I presume goliaths are the same case, despite Gearbox retconning the lore established in BL1 with every subsequent game.
Midgets being called tinks destroyed any hope I had for 3, because I knew it was all downhill from there.
It was tolerable for me. Now, characters like Lorelei on the other hand... BL3 is great, the best in the series in terms of gameplay, but they do really seem forced.
why can't you take silly design like what it is?
remember that old internet gore pics about that dude who tried to lift so much he shat out his own intestines?
well that's literally the same thing except the dude got so angry he popped his skull off instead of merely popping a vein
it's a silly space fantasy game which takes memes as the ultimate form of humor who cares about explaining every little thing
>remember that old internet gore pics about that dude who tried to lift so much he shat out his own intestines?
did he die?
nah they called the ambulance in time and tuck it in again when they brought him to the hospital
so who's idea was it to have these guys be a thing?
>uh yeah you headshot them and then they do some weird T-virus shit
I WANT EVERYTHING YOU GOT
GIMME YER DAMN LOOT
LEAVE US ALONE
Bury me with mah stuff
MIDGET LOVIN’ TAINT SACK!
DIBS ON THEIR SCALPS
I'M SO GODDAMN ANGRY
GET ON YOUR GODAMN KNEES
gotta kill gotta kill GOTTA KILL GOTTA KILL GOTTA KILL GOTTA KILL GOTTA KILL
I MISS MY MIDGET
>He can level up and drop better loot
>What this actually means is he drops the eridium meme currency for backpack upgrades if you're willing to run him through an entire fucking level and kill other enemies (which makes their drops worse)
>This is even more retarded for the Loot Goon Goliath which determines its drops when it spawns
I have literally never been more mad, and I actually wanted to play Borderlands 2 after 1 and its expansion packs
haha little guy go grrr
They drop eridium more often yes but they're also more likely to drop blues or higher and they suck up all the exp of everything they kill so it's more often than not worth it to let them rampage, especially if it's a badass when spawned.
You mean shit you can buy from a vendor, and generally is undertiered because they want you to do boss raid like it's a shitty MMO
Blues or higher. Vendors fucking suck in 2 btw, good luck getting above a green without mods/extremely good luck.
they take the xp of anything they kill and I'm not sure but I believe they double it
But letting them go apeshit is fun? Borderlands isn't exactly competitive or filled with gear checks
>or filled with gear checks
OP10 exists, you know
Yeah, I've watched some autist speedrun it as background noise a few times, but then you're just doing a challenge run on the highest difficulty, and gear checks really aren't required outside of that.
I could see that minmaxing being someone's type of fun though
Anyone else feel like the enemies were worse in the later titles? (Namely 3 and wonderlands). In the earlier games you’d have to think about what you were fighting and act accordingly, but in the newer ones you just scan the minimap for red dots and unload in that direction until everything’s dead. Maybe I’m just delusional but I just finished a spellshot / plaguebearer wonderlands playthrough and the combat felt so brainless, just spam spells endlessly in their general area to win for the entire game
No you aren't imagining things, it's been a conscious decision since BL2 to make it couch-friendly. I don't have a problem with the concept itself but I agree the execution was terrible even by the DLCs for BL2 where enemy prioritization boiled down to how many times 'ass' appeared in their name.
>you just scan the minimap for red dots and unload in that direction until everything’s dead
Fuck no that's the opposite with borderlands 3. The anointed enemies and zealot badass' with autoaim rocket launchers can't really be bruteforced
Haven't played wonderlands but the enemies in 3 are generally fine outside the replacement for nomads being just flat out worse in every aspect. The biggest problem is how lame all their voice lines are.
In 2 they deliberately only used enemies in certain levels that their mechanics would make sense. Goliaths were introduced in Frostburn Canyon and only placed around areas you'd find spiderants or other small mook enemies like midgets. They then avoided using Goliaths in The Dust (no bandits near spiderant spawns and a car can easily outrun them) and the Bloodshot Dam (full of elite enemies that would kill the goliath long before they could level up) only to return them in Tundra Express. Stalkers were also only placed in large open arenas where the player is always given a clear view of everything, even given a slight height advantage all specifically to make stalkers less frustrating to fight against.
Borderlands 3 on the other hand started introducing enemies seemingly at random, Goliaths were introduced in the Jakobs Manor because ???. No Goliaths in BL3 are placed anywhere near mook enemies aside from maybe one arena in a side quest thus making them near impossible for you to engage with their mechanic. Another example is the Jabber, a beast enemy capable of using guns. Their unique mechanic is they can climb and hang off of geometry the players can't, you can see this in the Jabber Village area in a (single) side quest (FAR off the beaten path) where they will frequently flank the player by climbing up or down pathways the player can't reach, despite this the only areas you'll encounter Jabbers in the main storyline is in flat enclosed arenas.
The usage of enemies in 3 were a clear afterthought. I can't speak for Wonderlands since I haven't played it yet.
I actually played borderlands 2 last night and there are goliaths in the dust. They're in that camp where you burn down the volleyball shit
Yeah in an area that you can't get a vehicle in. I say they avoided using them in the Dust and Bloodshot Dam but I guess I should specify by them being restrictive of them in the dust and outright disallowing them in bloodshot.
the fuck were you doing in tftb for 40 hours?
played through the first chapter a few times when it came out since it was my first telltale game and I was curious how much the options ranged
replayed all chapters in order each time a new one came out since each chapter took like 8 months to come out and I forgot what happened during all of them
think I went through it one more time being a total dick to see how much changed overall
I actually really liked some of the enemy designs in 3. The Maliwan troops are probably my favorite, even if heavies are laughably easy to kill.
GRIND GRIND GRIND KILL KILL KILL! STOP DYING AT ME!! GET STYLED UPON!!!
Melee focused + shotgun suicider Krieg was so much goddamn fun
"See the numbers, taste the violence."
Krieg has the best voice lines in any game.
I'm not sure what you mean, I'm assuming you mean you can't have regular guns like an M16 or an AK have random stats generated on it without it being out of place, in which case I would agree you can't have it on a game with a more realistic setting.
Most live shooters feel more like a shitty version of an MMO like WoW where loot power is based on ilvl and otherwise don't feel different, whereas Borderlands is the only one that I'm aware of that has the randomization and over the top legendaries that are more similar to Diablo or PoE. Also skill trees in most other looter shooters are boring number increases that don't really change gameplay much.
>YOU CANNOT STOP WHAT I'VE BECOME
Krieg had all the right in the world to have such fantastic badass lines. And I'm glad he did
>Go inside Krieg's mind
>It's boring shit
BL3 dropped the ball real hard with my boy, though some bits were cool.
Not gonna lie I dropped BL2 because I was scared of this enemy.
Why have we never gotten another good diablo style shooter hybrid? I feel like Borderlands has the right balance of great shooting mechanics and the depth of an isometric arpg, how often do games have a game changing skill tree like Anarchy with Mechromancer.
Because it's hard to have the self control to make "standard" weapons usable when you have loot.
What sucks even more is that all of the other big name loot shooters are live services. Say what you will about Borderlands but at least it doesn't punish you with FOMO and power level grinds just for putting it down when you're finished with it.
Just played through 3 for the first time as moze and she's braindead op on par with salvador and I think Athena and jack are the most fun characters.
She used to be the worst at launch now she's arguably the best tied with Zane. You dont even need the dlc just a meme build with iron bear will wipe entire areas
What makes Zane good? He doesn't do it for me like Flak and Moze.
he has a shitload of skills that trigger on enemy death like +shoot speed, move speed, damage, reload, extra bullets, hp regen, sheldl regen, random grenades being shot alongside bullets.
once you get enough of those kill skills they happen all the time and basically you're always running around with all your kill skills active at once.
I just can't stomach the thought of sitting through all the dialogue again in 3. Only completed 1 playthrough as fl4k
>godlike ass and thighs
>fucks like a bunny (high testosterone and good physique)
>you will have to deal with her ptsd and tolerate her being permanently depressed
Would you my favorite BL girl Athena?
>tfw will never see her again in new games
Your favorite BL girl is a moon lesbian.
TFTB is non-canon. If you thing different,
what happened in the end of TFTB?
Where is Fiona and the others?
Why it's events are never mentioned?
did you memoryhole vaughn
I should've done that too
kinda ruined for me when I realized they had torgue's voice
Goliath having Hercule's voice is what made them great for me.
>let it rampage in the camp
>keep an eye on its health
>let it bloat to max level
It was bothersome but I don't feel like I wasted time doing it
How can you achieve a voice acting this bad? From 1 to 10, he would be a fucking negative number.
only knoxx had good voice acting in 1
maybe scooter too, unironically a downgrade in 2
Tannis' voice diaries are good too. Speaking of, before BL3 Lilith, Tannis and Moxxi never talked to each other. In BL3 they do talk to each other and sometimes their dialogues sound weird because they have one and the same VA.
>SLAB, DID YOU JUST INSULT BRICK'S VOICE ACTING? GODDAMN YOU'RE A FUCKING gay!!!!
also this, roland was much worse
they turned him from a playa into a moralfag with a mouth full of marbles
>Uhhh ummm hey Vault Hunter I need your help
>Uhhhh right sorry uhhhh
They completely changed his character, how the hell did he manage to become a leader whene he acts like an autist with no social skills.
Dating a proto-egirl.
I'LL KILL YOU SLOWLY FOR THAT
for me? it's the damned
>Gameplay is the best
>Story is so fucking bad it prevents people from even trying to get their VH to max lvl
And I heard that Wonderlands is dead because devs didn't add DLC and that New Tales has even worse writing than 3.
i forced myself to finish the main story and the casino dlc, but the western made me uninstall the moment they introduced that fucking roided out chud monstrosity
don't even get me started
>manufacturers have real idendity
>build diversity at an all time high
>fixed elemental interactions to be actually fun
>most tight and slick controls
>but all the motivation to play dies the moment a character speaks
If they just toned down the dogshit writing that nobody likes, BL4 will live at least double of BL2 and BL3 (not really saying much lmao) lifespans combined
you can delete the audio files to remove dialogue
Literally just bring it up to 2's standard of writing, which wasn't particularly great in the first place but it was still way better than 3. Fucking bring back Jack for all I care, he'd at least liven things up a bit and it's not like anyone REALLY cares about continuity in a series that had fucking Roland die despite literally being added to the respawn machines at the start of 1.
Handsome Jackpot and Psycho Krieg dlc is the only redeemable writing and even then it can't repair the damage done, not that it was ever the pinnacle of writing but at least handsome jack was entertaining as fuck. Just watch this intro and wonder what the fuck they were thinking with the eceleb streamer cult over bringing back Jack.
Those were a breath of fresh air after dealing with the shit of the main game but even then I still wish we didn't have to deal with fucking DLC just to get some decent writing.
Most guns are some of the most unfun and retarded gimmick shit I have ever in my life encountered in a video game. Quite literally the amount that come even remotely close to how tight and well designed guns from fucking 1 and 2 tended to be were sequestered to Legendary and Annointed effects. I find myself fighting the fucking guns more than the fucking enemies, it's completely obnoxious. I'm not even talking about Maliwan here.
I would kill for a bl3 arcade mode where they strip out the talking parts and just teleport you from map to map, Metal Slug style.
I'd even tolerate a roguelike spin on the story maps where you progress though weapon triers ANYTHING to skip the story and make the game presentable to normal people.
Sadly you often just stand next to a mute npc and read their dialogue as they act out their animations. It also removes all voice acting like enemy lines and such, making the game awkwardly quiet . Also does not work on DLC to my knowledge.
>start uvhm as mania/hellborn krieg
>get to any bit with buzzards
just make them fucking hone in on flying gayry
CUP O' TEA CUP O' TEA CUP 'O TEA MATE?!
i hate the dialogue in this so much it's unreal
i hate that you need to wait like 5 minutes for gladstone to shut the fuck up before he opens the door
you now remember Pickle
COR DO EYE MEMBA
I don't like Pickle but he's probably the most tolerable dumbass little kid in the series.
Why are redditors so obsessed and infatuated with this character? I can see the 4th dlc tugging on the heart a little bit but everything else about her is insufferable and she is the blueprint for every character in Borderlands 3, she is just as obnoxious as Zooey Deschanel.
why do you think?
You can say that about pretty much every character from 2 onwards. Characters that you can't stand are held up as the best thing in the series. For the life of me I can't stand Handsome Jack and his whole UH HEY JUST TO REMIND YOU BUM BUM HORSE, but even people who hate 2 will say he is good. Even before the telltale game
I mean as far borderland characters go Jack is kinda at the top. Who would you say is better then him? Mordecai?
COR BLIMEY ME SISTER JUST NICKED ME THINGS
This was fucked up.
much hit me harder than killing the scientists
tfw no Skipper gf
Everytime i play 2 and kill constructors i am reminded that this once a person
Opinions on Redux?
Which one? 3?
They are more?
>pearls in bl1
>basically BiS guns
>pearls in bl2
>worse than purples/blues
only carnage is redeemable IF it spawns with the 3x prefix
Butcher's good on hellborn Krieg.
*hellborn or bloodbath
I forgot it's not just fire.
bored. bored. bored bored bored bored bored bored BORED. I AM REALLY, REALLY BORED
How long do you even have to wait to hear him say this? I swear I've sat idle for like 5 mins at a time where they don't say anything at all.
you need to be playing online i think
WELCOME TO THE BADASS CRATER OF BADASSITUDE
Most perverted by the woke agenda character of all time.
the amount of gayry injected into the series between 1 and 3 is disgusting
>axton suddenly bi
>torgue suddenly bi
>hammerlock is gay because reasons
>that fucking revolting kiss in the jakobs dlc
don't know much else because bl3 is fucking horrendous to actually play through normally
The Borderlands series was probably one of the strongest examples of leftist ideology being injected into a series ever made
>hammerlock is gay because reasons
he was a fag in 2 don't pretend 3 turned him into one
You don't need a "reason" to be a fag, you just are one and nothing will change that.
and the character gains nothing by being one
I remember when the first game made fun of a character for being a closeted gay.
Yellow drop chance should be 50% and you should be able to reroll and increase the level of items for money
Fuck the deranged mongrel who thought to make the game a fucking reset simulator
Is Pre-Sequel worth playing? So far I... haven't found much. Started a Lawbringer run.
>action skill is just a fucking aimbot
>oz mechanic is completely pointless
>buttslams deal such a small amount of damage it's not worth doing them
I just killed the jump pad guy. So far the only character I actually like is Zarpedon, everyone else is annoying. Does it get better? Are there actually fun characters?
Pre sequel was great, but short, that and 2 are the ones I enjoyed
Should have went with the Handsome Jack body double.
What I want to know is if the other characters are, well, fun to play. I don't like Nisha so far: the "permanently gunzerking" stuff she has on late levels sounds cool but also a step down from actual gunzerking, and Showdown is such a fucking boring power
Nisha's kinda boring but most of the others are fun. Athena can do melee or elemental shit, claptrap is funny random, and Wilhelm is a big tanky dude. Not-Jack is probably the best imo.
claptrap is interesting because he forces you to keep swapping between things and aurelia is the most overpowered sniper user in the franchise
It's fine but low on content. It gets better after the first area but I will say there's no really good characters in it.
Only Jack simps like Pre-Sequel. Are you a Jack simp?
Could not care less about Jack. I was there for Wilhelm then Peepot and the Guardians for subsequent playthroughs
>it get better? Are there actually fun characters?
It speaks volumes that the best characters are the claptraps. How did they fuck up so bad that i look forward to fucking claptraps talking?
The Pre Sequel has nothing interesting goin on outside of the setting, and the combat encounters are gimped by there being a maximum of 8 characters on the screen at all times, and all combat encounters after some point turn into a fucking 8 enemy wave fiesta. It really feels like thatr 5th dlc for B2.
Eh, that doesn't feel like B2 Jack, a bit too much of a goofball.
the presequels are terrible; long distances between quest targets; constant forced backtracking; the annoying o2 mechanic; every single character being gay and just constantly having to tell you that they're gay; the retarded fucking story that makes no sense whatsoever
i try to replay it every year just to see if i'm wrong and if it actually has any redeeming value
the pacing is horrendous, the skill trees are garbage (literally EVERYONE has some shoehorned stacking mechanic), and there's actually no endgame.
some concepts were cool, like the Grinder and the DLC's glitch weapons, but overall the game is just a slog.
The humour is fucking horrendous and this is coming from an Aussie. We apologize for making this garbage, but just know aussies aren't as cringe like in the pre sequel.
>just know aussies aren't as cringe like in the pre sequel.
Aussie people aren't but Aussie comedians are. I don't know what it is but I have never found an Australian comedian funny except Summer Heights High when I was 13
I want to fuck both Nisha and Maya, and I want them to fuck each other too.
I can't stand what they did with her in 3 and worse of all Krieg not doing anything about it and him just going boohoo she's dead in his dlc
I don't care what they did to her in 3 because I don't consider that game canon. Somehow they managed to have worse writers than burch.
i push my fingers into
EYYYYES its the only thiong that slowly stops the ache
>convince myself i want to get into modding BL2
>no longer want to mod BL2
UCP and BL2fix are mods that really improve the game by adding features like skipping dialogues and improving the loot drop rate in general.
can i use either of those to change the level scaling?
specifically, can i set the level cap to 35 and the OP levels to 5?
There are mods that make it less retarded like TPS. Not sure if there are separate from big rebalances, though.
YOU LOOKIN' AT MY SHOTTY? DON'T LOOK AT MY SHOTTY
can't remember how many GOD-lithis I made, It has to be over 20 easy. I love the voice lines and the gameplay so much.
i have borderlands 3 and i wish i could play it more than i have but got the characters annoy me too damn much
You'd think play testers would've complained about how much you stood around doing nothing but waiting for dialogue to end.
Or maybe they did and the devs just didn't care.
I love those lads like you wouldn't believe.
YOU SAT ON MY SWING, NOW I'M GOING TO EAT YOU!!!
i never got around to playing the rest of 2's dlc past captain scarlett. any good stuff?
I honestly can't even remember what was in the other dlc
