    Expect the player base for this and future Borderlands games to drop off. BL3 was the major one, that brought in old and new fans but the game was sucky and so were the DLCs. But as of now I'd say the only people that still play Borderlands are brainless chuds who think that Borderlands 3 was good and people who are in too deep to let go, like me. What's it called, the Sink Cost Fallacy? That's me.

      i tried playing bl3 and it is sad how they buried a great game under such atrocious writing, design choices and enemy design.

      there was a brief moment in that one crime solving mission
      >the map was linear and there was nothing to collect
      >they had the goliaths and big psychos from bl2 so the enemies were fun to fight for once
      >drastically increased enemy density
      and even the writing was actually kind of enjoyable.
      i played that mission and for a moment it i thought that maybe bl3 wasnt so bad after all, but then i did another story mission and i got whiplash from just how shitty everything was. i just gave up on it.

      i dont know what went wrong, because clearly a lot did. but the gunplay and mobility is genuinely really fun and the classes are cool too. its a fucking shame

      The combat and just general gameplay was the best the series has seen. If there was a way to move that to bl2s story there'd be something very good there. Of course the best course of action would be to purge the bluehairs from their writing staff and make a genuinely good storyor at the very least an acceptable boring one like bl1 but that doesn't happen any more.

        Because they're not mutually exclusive, anon. You can include characters of multiple stripes while still appealing to coomers. It's honestly the best way to go about handling shit -- continue what you were doing and just add more variety. It doesn't hurt anyone and makes people feel included.

          Athena and Springs being lesbians wasn't political don't be stupid. If the situation was Athena and Janey being persecuted for being lesbians then you have a point but Springs was pissed off at Athena because Athena promised no more dangerous missions but did them secretly because they needed the money.

      Ah yes, representing trannies with characters who actually are able to 100% change their gender at a biological level, as scifi and fantasy settings now so love to do. Always makes for a fine and respectable comparison.

        Sci fi has always had transhumanism cropping up as a tangental theme, transexualism is babby shit with the technology they are able to provide. you might begin to think the whole genre based on stuff that doesnt exist yet.

    Why did they have to kill of Maya? Bring her back and I'll come back to Borderlands.

    • 2 months ago

      They didn't kill Maya, what actually happened was they arrived at the office one day to find her character had developed self-determination through sheer spite for the company, and Maya wrote her own death as an escape.

    • 2 months ago

      The shitty part about Maya is that you get Maya then 3 chapters later lose Maya, and the 2 chapters between Maya isn't even relevant, so really you only got Maya for 2 chapters. You could bang out chapters 7-10 in maybe 3-4 hours depending on how distracted you get. I think for a lot of players they gained Maya and lost Maya in the same day of playing. But the absolute worst part is in the Krieg DLC they gave a backdoor for Maya to maybe return as something something about her Siren book in Kreig's memory could bring her back to life due to Siren mystic shenanigans.

            It does some things right and some things wrong, but still has the same feel as 3's combat for the most part. You now have a dedicated melee slot that you place a melee weapon in which determines the stats for your melee swing. Spells replace grenades instead but there's a ton of variety with them.
            Really the worst thing about wonderlands is the low drop chances you have at the start (have to collect dice around the maps to increase it) and how RNG dependent a lot of gear is. Especially armor pieces.
            >first it has to roll the correct two class skill trees (since you multi-class in this game)

            >then it needs to roll the correct passive boosts (armor can have up to three different passive boosts out of a huge pool)
            >then if you're farming for armor with unique effects that have their own pool, it has to roll those

              It is though, and there are plenty of classes and builds which make good use out of it. It's just that you only can have one melee weapon equipped at a time.

      Ya know what's funny is the DLC makes up for the game. I still haven't bought the Gay Wedding DLC because I refuse to.

      • 2 months ago
        Anonymous

        The wedding DLC felt really schizophrenic in terms of mood. And not just because it was dealing with Old Gods, but because it couldn't decide whether it wanted to fully commit to the cosmic horror, or stick with the standard borderlands "humour". The end result is this really awkward half-measure of both, and it just falls really flat.
        The final stretch of the DLC when you go into the dead old god itself would have benefited greatly from dropping all humour and focusing fully on just how terrifying such a prospect would be. I remember being extremely disappointed when I got to that part and there was absolutely nothing in terms of unique player call-outs for that part of the DLC.

            somewhat related I cannot decide on a borderlands 2 character. what does Ganker recommend? I play solo or occasional 2 player coop if that matters

            Do you have a goal in mind? Salvador is a front line gun brawling tank, Axton's turret can be clutch as a distraction carnifex, Zer0 can escape any combat and has precision damage buffs, Maya has heals, Krieg is a fun melee DPS that sets himself on fire and Gaige rapes anything and everyone with her Anarchy and Deathtrap can revive in in FFYL so she's really hard to put down. Really with Gaige I got her Nth Shot and Anarchy up so much I was just shooting at walls letting bullets bounce on enemies and even with the reduced damage was still shredding them.

              The only real issue I had with gaige is if you do end up dying building stacks again takes forever and since it's your only real damage boost you hit like a wet noodle until you do.

    I tried playing Borderlands 2 and something about the weapon variety feels way more boring than BL1. Does it get fun later? I feel like BL1, anything was possible but in BL2, I keep finding more or less the same few guns. I'm still early on but still, it just feels different.

      It gets better. My biggest gripe about guns in BL2 is that your storage space is severely kneecapped compared to BL1 and guns are often obsolete after two levels.
