One concern I have based on the trailer is that the game more or less looks analogous to what it looked like in 2012. Not aesthetically, of course the art direction would have to stay consistent, but in terms of making the most out of modern GPUs. It "feels" like the sequel has to do some serious bells and whistles innovation to justify the wait. Otherwise it's 100% a content play, essentially a giant mod of BL2, which is fine with me, but my own's expectation for the sequel was different.

Honestly Iím super okay with the graphics not being super updated if it means the sacrifices to enemy density, inventory size, and the loot system from 2 and TPS are not there

Are they gonna try and explain why there's so many psychos and why they got all mutated and wear uniform Jason masks?

Most of this has been explained already, convicts were forced to work in irradiated mines and then abandoned when the wildlife woke up from hibernation and started killing people. All of that led to varying degrees of mutation and insanity.

The masks are just cool character design not everything needs lore

Yeah, the first game feels a lot more like gallows humor and I generally prefer itís tone. I also really dislike how the second game basically retconned the entire plot of the first game for a cheap twist



I did a slightly more thorough look through the trailer and what Iím really excited about is that the shotguns seem to be not the bullshit they were in 2

Can't believe there's still a dumb useless turret guy but I suppose there has to be a default option for people to go to in a hurry, I still remember BL1 being mostly Rolands in random online play.

Is there a turret guy besides the mech suit? seems a lot more interesting that just plonking down a turret

The problem with jack in tps is that it reframes his motives in 2 as being driven by revenge which makes him a lot less interesting as a villain. it also paints the vault hunters in a worse light and just overall is a bad time

Let's not let Lilith get away either. The whole of Borderlands 2 could have been avoided if she just shot him in the loving face instead of just punching him and peacing out right there at the end.

yeah the takeaway from tps is ďall of 2 couldíve been easily avoidedĒ and is probably my second least favorite sequel in terms of giving backstory that ruins everything

Clarste posted:

I just realized you mean he wants revenge on Lilith, which I guess is fair in that it's slightly different. But I feel like it doesn't really change his attitude towards them (vermin who get in his way), it just means he met them a little sooner in his life.

It changes it from them being vermin who gets in his way to him destroying pandora specifically to get revenge

During the montage near the end of the trailer. You can see that one of the character's isn't running but sliding forward if you watch at a slower speed.

He'll probably just announce that HL3 is in production and will also be Epic Store exclusive.

Edit: Does anyone know if BL1 on PC now has native xbox controller support? It technically did before, but you had to do an INI edit to get the button prompts to be xbox compatible.

From what I saw of the stream controller prompts worked fine

I like how the demand of no exclusivity came before a reasonable workplace

also the whole ďwe have a 15 hour story doneĒ like games are made linearly and only one thing at a time is being worked on

the sad thing is that the working conditions are probably a lot worse than what the post describes but gamers donít care about that as long as they can buy the game on steam

You definitely want to start UVHM decked out and with a really tight build

Iíd also strongly recommend the UVHM rebalance mod which reduces enemy health by a lot and nerfs slag to the ground (this is a good thing). Itís not necessary and Iíve gotten to OP levels without it but it just makes everything a lot less frustrating

Rakk hive is nowhere near as bad, and it was truly impressive at the time with its scale. It also has the cool lore implications when you realize how many of those are dormant around pandora when you recognize them all over the place on your second play through.
