Nah.I'm so glad they nerfed Legendary drops. Boy, were those annoying! I sure love slaving away for loot-that-may-not-have-all-the-necessary-parts-to-suit-my-build; in fact, I would rather they reward me only one out of every five runs! Fuck good things! I hate positive feedback.
"Every time Lilith isn't on screen, the characters should be asking: 'Where's Lilith?'"I didn't think Borderlands 2/TPS had any good writing either, but I don't remember it being this offensively bad.
I died laughing as Lilith basically went "I must return to my home planet" and flew in the moon and did a siren thing and died. Then the credits rolling in with Alicia Keyes' "This Girls is on Fire" was the cherry on top.
Gearbox did the impossible, they found a writer worse then Anthony Burch.
I haven't finished the game yet due to life, but I'll convey what I've thought so far:"Every time Lilith isn't on screen, the characters should be asking: 'Where's Lilith?'"
Oh boy I sure hope I get another Nemesis to drop or another Hellwalker! Lordy knows the game gave me more than enough room to store the some 200 legendaries as long as I fill my 50 slot bank, my 40 slot backpack, my wall slots, my equipment slots and create other characters to act like mules! If I didn't get constant validation with a legendary nearly every ten minutes I'd just down the glass of bleach I keep around in case or emergencies!
The Warrior had been hyped a lot and indeed he is kind of a disappointing final boss. The vending machines are oddly paradoxical because to buy the better shit if you dont want to grind weapons is to grind money, to which you need to kill enemies and find containers to get it and sooner or later you get a better weapon than the guns being sold in the vending machine through that grind.Just finished Borderlands 2’s main campaign with Krieg, and honestly the final boss was just completely underwhelming. To be fair I was fully specced into Hellborn and the Warrior primarily used fire attacks, but I was able to pretty much just stand in the middle platform and shoot him with a corrosive pistol til he died.
Overall I’d say I had a good time, but the gun vending machines really need to have some better options. Quest reward weapons offer so much benefit over your standard junk that there’s little reason to ever buy from a vending machine past the early game.
Unless thats something touched upon the DLC, Im not counting on it. The writing in this game has been sub partKrieg's audio logs built on his character from BL2 pretty well. They're setting up for a great moment when Krieg finds out about Maya's death. Remains to be seen if they'll do anything worthwhile with it.
Have you tried respecing your trees? sometimes having specs that go shit together is usually the problem, and retweaking your build helps wonders. Also investing on a good shield/weapon mod helps. Bosses are more grindy in this game unfortunately imo, but also the new Terror mechanic introduced for halloween will totally botch your damage and accuracy if you have enough stacks of it without proper annointed weapons to capitalise on this status.I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong in 3, but at level 21 it just seems like anything other than cultists just has artificially high hit points, especially bosses. My weapons aren't crap, I swap elements, go for weak points... Are you stuck using keys or eridium at the vending machine on Sanctuary to not make fights a chore? Can't figure out why I suck, never had problems with the other games.
I honestly doubt we are getting a 4 after the dlcs so its the last we will see of borderlands for a long while. And its for the better.Yesterday gearbox did a stream on twitch discussing the future of the game, of course, I didn't watch it, but my brother did and oh boy...
The hack writer was there and he talked about the borderlands 2 vault hunters, and he said only a few o them will appear in the DLCs. Since only Krieg and Gaige are mentioned in the vanilla game, I presume Axton and Salvador were completely retconned! They simply don't exist in the canon anymore. Fun, right?
But it gets even worse: Eva - the little prick who makes Mary Sue from Star Wars looks like a competently well-written character - Will be heavily focused on the DLCs. And Maya willingly chose to give her powers to her for some reason. I guess Maya really likes obnoxious little brattices who spend the whole day complained about how shitty their lives are.
Seriously, fuck this game forever.
