Borderlands 3

been meaning to talk about borderlands 3 since i finished it.

to start.... what a shame about the writing in this game. it ruins something that really improved upon the formula of an already very good franchise. simply put the bad writing of borderlands 2 persisted and got worse. i think its very endemic of the games attempt to top each sequel. bl1 was a very blank slate game, almost conducive to roleplay as you took on the job of a mercenary in a wild west setting. much of the story happened in the periphery. bl2 upped that ante and made you a soldier with a lot riding on you winning a war. you became central to the plot. and bl3 wants you to be a movie star. a mcu style planet hopping guardian of the galaxy.

every hamfisted reference, every dreamworks grinning "sup," every predictable emotional arc and beat just grates on you constantly. whats genuinely funny or touching is buried under an over long bit by the calypso twins about farting on a train or rhys' va failing to sell any of the emotion hes conveying. or an entire, loooooong quest line full of dialogue on "dank memes." like dont get me wrong i am sold on the progressive strides they made on many social issues. but it feels flat on the face of how they tried to compromise and work it into the bro-y 9gag humor of bl2. the whole thing just makes me cringe.

and its a damn shame too. because the gunplay in this game is terrific. jakobs guns, oh man , jakobs guns really got an upgrade in this game. they feel impactful and they feel great to shoot. vladof and dahl guns are sharp and brutal as they needed to be with cool alt firing modes, maliwan and hyperion are still way too strong but have recieved some nifty QOL changes. the game even managed to sell me on tediore guns, which were the most meh guns for me in bl2. and many of the guns, particularly shotguns, look a lot better than the mini fridge units they looked in the previous games.

and like, the level progression kicks ass. no slag to slow down the late game and turn everything into DPS checks (mayhem mode does this and i dont care for it for obvious reasons) and the enemy amount and variety feels fair 80 percent of the time. higher damage output and no need to slag makes element matching less of a chore. the new enemy types are cool, though some feel kinda boring in lategame when they choose to randomly go damage immune. what i like most is the setting changes. traversing planets besides pandora keeps the game feeling fresh. theres plenty to explore thanks to map challenges. and the final act felt like a genuinely good final act. much much better than bl2's final act just imo. as for postgame, theres a lot to sink your teeth into through artifical difficulty modifiers and "raid" dungeons that have replaced the bullet sponge raid bosses of the previous games. (i like this. its a good change.)

i guess my real qualms with the game rn are optimization and graphic wise. even on advanced hardware this games sort of a beast that will dip you down below 60 without fiddling with various settings. its a very obtuse set of dense menus with lots of things you can change, so maybe consult a guide. on an older computer? good luck. you will be lucky to hit 40 fps in a fight. and the facial rigging btw is ugly as sin. otherwise the graphics are a pure upgrade.

so theres so much improvement. its a borderlands game for a modern audience. its just too bad the writers are so tone deaf all they could think of is "write this for a modern audience." it drags the game down. but honestly dont let it stop you from trying if you liked the first two games. it makes no compromises on the gameplay loop and i love it for that.

Maybe you should gave a feedback on his characters on YouTube, that should work.

That would require being productive.

How is posting feedback here not productive? Nobody is obligated to search this person out.

You live for this don't you?

i dont know what thats supposed to mean lol  but ill just assume you dont have a suitable answer to my question

JJ Abrams plays it extremely safe and tbh so does Lucasfilm nowadays (they have a tendency to take potshots at Rian's work specifically because of the fan outrage and what do you know, this movie was a soullessly produced pander/nostalgia fest for the older fans), plus they went so far as removing KMT from promotional material. TBH even finn was very sidelined, but what they did to Rose feels more than just JJ not being invested in her. I don't doubt much of this is Disney's own cynical financial strategy and Lucasfilm's inability to stand by the work of their filmmakers but the fan outrage is a major component of that. I think its a big part of the reason ROS is what it is.

lol

She existed exclusively to bring in the Yuans and failed at it, it shouldn't be surprise she has a much more limited role now.

yeah the extremely good strategy of bringing in a vietnamese woman with no big acting credits to bring in "yuans" give me a break lol

she failed insofar as she pissed off a bunch of vitriolic ppl who proceeded to harrass her over social media and disney kowtowed to it.

i was googling for investments just a few minutes ago and after a few minutes i got an ad about foreign investing company in my local language.

You're about 5 years late to this revelation

You are correct it is off topic. So until new information is posted on the character, if that were to ever happen, please refrain from posting here.

@Dissidia your entitled to your opinion, I appreciate the feedback, and your time to test the character. This took me tremendous work on my part to do and countless hours of trial and error. No easy task. I do this for my enjoyment, and not to please others.

He never said you had to please him. Hes pointing out errors and issues with your character.

I see you're trying to interact but that's not the right way.
What's wrong is that you are very clearly trying to stir clicks and conversations in your topic in a forum that is clearly not really gonna have much to say to get more attention to you instead of just interacting normally with the forum.
So, enlighten me. What is the right way to interact? How exactly do I go about "properly" interacting with the fine folks of this forum?

Keep in mind that those question threads were just me trying to get to know y'all.

We're not here to teach you how to conduct yourself.

They were spaced out in minutes and the post was varied between all three. If it was a glitch they'd have been copies.
Nah, it was most likely the forum bug. Sometime clicking post will hang, allowing people to resubmit the same form even if its edited. People repost thinking their post didnt go through, its happened to myself actually. The time intervals are consistent too.
