Have they changed the not cheatengine loot rate? My bud and I got two oranges to drop yesterday while starting a new co-op run of 2.

It was improved over the course of a few patches, but this was some years ago.

Any word on whether there's actual gun customization in this one, because I can tolerate Borderlands humor being Borderlands humor as long as I finally get that feature I've been wanting since the first one.

The leaks mentioned some sort of gun customization

Do you get the additional DLC for free when the Borderlands 2 update comes out on Steam on the 3rd? I got the impression they decided to throw the DLC in for existing owners but not sure

don't think so. free dlc was for borderlands 1, or rather you get the remaster with all the dlc regardless if you own the dlc or not.

I just finished it and I have to say it's very good. Although I'm not a big fan of Telltale QTE adventures (I'd prefer to have a more relaxed experience with more thinking and less reaction required out of nowhere occasionally, and I always hate not being able to skip dialogue I can read in half the time it takes to play all the voice overs), it mostly works fine and more importantly the story and characters are good, especially compared to the shooters. Gortys and Loader Bot are adorable.

How long did it take ya? I have to get to it eventually.

I've been doing a new run as Maya and her 3rd tree just destroys everything, the fart cloud that spawns ontop of enemies just melts them and anything that runs into it, shout out to Blight Phoenix for destroying anything that comes into melee range.

Both were buffed to hell a few years ago. Before that they were borderline useless, especially the cloud. (I don't like the phoenix wings because they set off nearby barrels).

orcane posted:

I tried to replay TPS but I don't really like any of the characters/playstyles and the beginning really, really sucks. Maybe I should just try BL2 again.

Athena's loving awesome, but as usual with borderlands you only start to see that around tvhm.

when running through helios saving scientists for jack, you have to do a favor for each one because gameplay. first guy wants a picture of his son. second guy lost his teddy bear.

you get up to the glass for the third guy and he says he can't help because he dropped his keys. the player character roasts him. you go find his keys and bring them back to him. as a reward he goes "oh, here, i actually have this prototype device for him, could you bring it to him?". he reaches into his pocket and pulls out the device, then when trying to hand it off to you he drops it and says "whoops"

that's the joke

Wait, so you can only get the Remaster for free if you bought the GotY bundle on PC, and everyone else (Assuming the Borderlands 1 in the Handsome Collection is functionally the same) can get hosed?

Feels gross to me.

No, you're supposed to get the remaster regardless of the version of Borderlands 1 you have. Also, the handsome collection never included Borderlands 1.

From the PS Blog post:
    Atlas now offers guns that fire tracker tags and Smart Bullets; DAHL weapons feature alternate fire modes; and the Maliwan range now incorporates firearms that can toggle between two elements and deal guaranteed elemental damage.

From the PSN deluxe preorder page:
    Equippable XP & Loot Drop Boost Mods
perhaps expected but still e:actually this kind of thing was already in BL2 where it was essentially useless. hoping for the same here.

Nice find. Jakobs now all have ricocheting bullets. I thought all guns would have the option of having extra accessories, like a grenade launcher, but it sounds like they're limited to Vladof

E: but isn't that a grenade launcher on those bottom atlas rifles? So it's probably different kinds of attachments

They would be crazy not to have Borderlands 3 online only/all-the-time like other games in the genre, otherwise it's hack city. People will just cheat engine their way to 999 stats and infinite rocket launchers with all mods attached and join in on coop games making everything insanely boring

A lot of people liked improving the drop rates.

Some people liked hacking in perfect versions of weapons without going overboard with cheats because of how impossible they were to get legitimately.

Does this mean there'll be less loot when playing without instanced loot? Or does more loot drop to compensate?(which would mean overstuffed chests?)

So I've never played Destiny, Division, or Anthem. I enjoyed Borderlands, but don't love it as much as most people do. I thought it was pretty good, but I wanted more RPG out of it. I want multiple Active abilities, more interesting trees etc. Hellgate London had lots of flaws, but I think the loose framework for a potentially great game was there -- and that's kind of what I want. A well made first or third person shooter with POE/Diablo levels of character building (both through loot and abilities).

I strongly suspect this will be more of the same (1 ability per character, boring passive skill tree, and the only loot will be guns/that 1 other gear slot I'm blanking on the name of), except with the added garbage of modern gaming monetization. I'll still buy it and have fun with it, but do you guys think they'll really expand on any of the fundamentals? I suppose we've seen too little to speculate, but it's fun to hope

Think the vault hunters are supposed to have multiple active abilities
