    Yeah I browsed through many streamers, the best were pretty annoying, most were completely unwatchable. I just wished they shut the fuck up. Some bald guy was screaming all the time, wtf?

    Also some of the worst playing I've ever seen, these guys have six-figure audiences and play like they've never touched a shooter before.

    Did they drag in a load of non regular BL streamers? I was watching Bahroo, seemed like his normal self, generally watchable.

    I don't know, I don't watch streamers usually. Maybe should have watched Bahroo, doesn't seem to talk as much as the others. Or should I say, he seems to comment on gameplay mechanics mostly while most others just babble all the time for babbling's sake.

    Watched that joltz guy for a while and was confused by how badly he played.

    edit: apparently Bahroo also plays well. Should have watched him I guess. Maybe I'll watch his stream later this week.

    I saw that bald guy. There was also a lot of OMG GUYS THIS IS THE BEST GAME EVER!!! and OMG THIS GUN HAS TWO FIRE MODES!!!. I get it you're at a reveal event and you're an influencer, just chill the fuck out.

    @JamboWayOh

    "an influencer"

    I loathe this term and all that it implies with a passion.

    As if Pitchford didn't already look like enough of a twat. First the microtransaction Twitter rant from the other day, now this:

    Despite it all being alleged, Pitchford has always had that conman kind of vibe about him. I'm just confused as to why 2K don't take control and let proper PR people speak for the company as he's just a fucking liability.

    Well Pitchford is the boss of Gearbox and they're not owned by 2K. I believe Borderlands is the biggest franchise published by 2K, so I don't know to what extent they could tell Pitchford what to do.

    They're not owned no, but they pay them for publishing. The guy is a fucking train wreck. Also I can totally believe he siphoned that 12 mil.

    Pitchford's been coming over as increasingly unhinged since some time before Colonial Marines launched.

    It's a shame, because Borderlands 2 was a really, really good game, but there's a risk now that the public reaction to BL3 just gets buried under a huge wheelbarrow-full of Pitchford-scented manure.

    @Rogueywon I live in hope that, no matter how bad Randy's magical lunacy gets, the average Bordlerlands punter doesn't read as much industry news as we do and therefore sales won't be affected

    Definitely. While it's still best to not just take every accusation without evidence for granted, Randy sure makes it very hard to uphold presumption of innocence.

    I'm loving the sarcasm in the front-page article about this- well played Emma Kent (or whoever does the picture captions)

    The Heavy performed the theme song over the intro last night, if you want to spoil the surprise.

    Trying to weigh up getting standard or the season pass version. Very steep at 90 and no actual information about what we are getting save for 4 expansions. Unless I just can't find it.
    Mandy Richford has said one thing, maybe no new vault hunters, but that would surprise me.
    I love BL and BL2 and the dlc campaigns for those were great.

    I pre-ordered BL2 with everything and never regretted it--the 4 DLC campaigns combined were more than the base game--so I did the same again this time. Also why would you doubt anything Randy says?

    I got the super deluxe edition for pc from greenmangaming. Got preorder money off and then used another code sale code they emailed to me. In then end it cost 63. Still waiting for my key though :-/

    Eesh. Some of those reviews coming out are bang average.
  • Deleted user 9 September 2019 17:53:57
    I wonder if it's a case of ludicrous expectations. Some of the reviews seem to be saying it's more of the same like it's a bad thing, when it's very much what I want...

    I think it seems like Borderlands 2.5 obviously ymmv depending on what you're looking for.

    More content, better graphics, quality of life improvements... 7/10.

    63% from pcgamer, ouch. Apparently the best and worst of Borderlands all in one package, they've doubled down on the humour for better or worse.

    Yeah the humour sounds rank and the characters sound very dull.
  • Deleted user 9 September 2019 18:25:17
    I just want to shoot stuff and have more of a campaign than Destiny so it's essentially got to keep me ticking over until Halo.

    The 63% PC Gamer review reads like it's slamming BL3 for being Borderlands. But Borderlands 2 is still the king of looter shooters and one of the best games of all time precisely because it is Borderlands. I always expected that some reviewers would trash it for being outdated and treading trodden paths, but that only seems to confirm that it's exactly what it's supposed to be. This 63% review confirms that it's everything I hoped for.
