It's Coming - Borderlands 3


#34

imo there are 3 ways to play this
solo - can recommend,

coop - from the beginning where it’s a first playthrough for both(so 1 ain’t blazing through) with a friend/like minded person, -someone you wont squabble over upgrades with - can also sorta recommend

coop - wait until the end for “endgame” boss - :man_shrugging: “depends”

anything else in between can be annoying, especially with randoms but even with friends, as besides from a first naked playthrough, once done seems all coop sessions just turn to a rush fest, like @Pylinaer mentioned, for clearing main story moving on in difficulty and/or blazin to bosses
and this is also the only place where you will encounter any grind. The game is fairly generous with plenty and decent or good loot while just goign through “normally” -“like a filthy casul”. Only during “endgame” stuff when you want to tweak x build/get xx specific items can it get a bit grindy trying to get some stuff.
but imo that’s not really where borderlands were fun. the endgame is a bit meh, and even with friends the coop play can be a bit uninteresting just going for x bosses, spray it up for few mins and done… playing story mode tho, starting a new character from scratch to try their skills now that was fun. -and if you can (find) someone to mess around with and enjoy the campaign playthrough then it can be really fun

it’s a decently fun looter shooter with silly stuff going on, “dumb comedy”, and an okay story and va, some parts of the first one are better than the sequel, and vice versa.
The first one ain’t exactly pretty, and has some qol features missing from the pc port you might want to change in config, but doesn’t bother all. But imo the first also has the better guns/combo -i sorely miss exploding rounds/snipers in the second. :grin:

overall i had meni meni meni hours of fun with the first 2 games, so it’s hard for me to not be able to recommend them either way.
But if you are looking for oldschool quake/doom etc “purity” shooting this aint it. If you’re looking for intricate boss fights mechanics, this aint it. If you’re looking for “mature” setting or “grown up’s” story and something deep, or just something that is truly innovative and flips a switch for gaming medium, this aint it.
^but it could still be fun despite that :wink:
-and hell, think i’d recommend BL2 just for Tiny Tina alone :smile:

You guys better get ready to install epic launcher after the video i saw on twitter that has since been deleted advertising BL3 as an epic exclusive. Yeah i get that it’s aprils fools and could be a joke but randy pitchford does support epic.

RiP my save games :disappointed:
in anticipation of the remasters i decided to install the “old” BL games, just to check
and as i peeked into the game i noticed my toons were… “off”… or even lacking…
guessing something must have borked in the cloud… -and i was so certain i had backed them up locally exactly to protect in case of that :man_facepalming: guess not :persevere:
(seems i forgot/missed bunch of other game’s saves too :confounded:)

:thinking:
or
*just won’t buy BL3 now :smirk:
:tipping_hand_man: -saves 40bucks for something else instead :ok_hand:

PSYCHONAUTS TWOOOOOOOO!

inb4 epic exclusive despite crowfunding goals and “nonapology” sellout vid :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
:joy:

too soon?


#39

Borderlands 1 + 2 + Pre-Sequel enhanced versions are live and free on Steam! just update or install the game; might have to restart your Steam to activate it.


#40

Borderlands 3 pre-purchase page active on Epic games

apparently they don’t feel it should be cheaper for anyone at all, regional-wise, nor do they feel the customer should benefit from the prize-saving possibilities of this store either, lol


#41

Not surprised at all… Most reviews contain mainly the word “epic” for some reason :smiley:


#42

I know I shouldn’t be, but for some reason I am excited to play through an "updated’ BL1, because there were so many quality of life and general improvements between 1 and 2 (not to mention some smoothness changes between 2 and 3.5).

Welp, looks like I get to go back through all 3 games again.


#43

is it just me or does it seem like it’s not “enhanced version” -but merely a texture pack for the original game (as “feared”) :face_with_raised_eyebrow: -at least i aint seeing separate entries for bl2 or pre sequel, only bl1


#44

:rofl: ahaha damn talk about salt… i will never understand that heroin additc "must have day 1"gamer mentality -just f’n wait, or skip entirely :man_shrugging:
THERE IS NO GOD!muh game i wanz aint weres i liking :pouting_cat:
:smile:


#45

I don’t even have a separate entry for 1 actually, just the name changed to BL1 GOTY


#46

I’ve got Borderlands GOTY and Borderlands GOTY Enhanced, so there should be separate entries o:


#47

yep yep, i do now too, thx for calling that to my attention! I didn’t have that earlier.


#48

They had said they made updates to the map, co-op quest and included customization…

Plus gold chests (so we win some and we loose some)

#50

i think that Randy guy did insinuate it would only be for 6 months or so, which i think is kind of ok


#51

:triumph:

:wink:


#52

It’s enough to piss me off because everything will be all over the internet by then.


#53

Don’t worry we all know


Your info is in the best of hands.
