I'll get the GOTY edition. Maybe.

Posted by Sil3n7

...yup

Posted by Reisz

Yeah, looks like Borderlands alright. I guess I'm just not the target audience for these games.

Madden levels of innovation on display here.

3/5?

Posted by voidox

didn't know there was another Borderlands 2 DLC o: .... oh wait...

Posted by dOm_CaTz

If this is priced at $40 at launch I'd actually pick this up.

Doesn't look terrible. Should be solid.

Edited by Besetment

Are they going to do the thing where they sell you a season pass, then sell new content that isn't included in the season pass, and then later on add it all including the preorder bonuses in a GOTY edition for a fraction of what you paid?

Posted by Vuud

There's no such thing as a pre-sequel, this is a midquel. But I'll chalk that up to marketing.

Posted by Efesell

I'm probably down for this.

Posted by siddarth0605

There are too many games i have on my backlist. This doesn't look different enough to get on day 1

Posted by Steadying

Getting pretty tired of sequels that reuse tons and tons of stuff from the previous game in the series. I understand games cost a lot of money to make, but.....man. Come on. At least create a new HUD...

Edited by Lausebub

I don't see people waering thongs on Neo Australia. No buy.

Edited by Corevi

That's literally the same HUD as 2, what the FUCK Gearbox. I like the gameplay in these games but man going up against Destiny did not give them any pressure to innovate.

Posted by Shortbreadtom

Hey, maybe if the humour doesn't all come from Reddit this time at least the writing won't make me want to pull my teeth out.

Seriously though, they would have to change so much about the Borderlands formula to make me interested in this game. Even little changes like having more than 1 goddamn active skill. 99% passives are so dull, and doesn't do enough to differentiate the classes

Also, a huge problem with Borderlands already is that there isn't enough environment variety. 2 was an improvement on 1, but all taking place on one small, rocky moon? I dunno

"During the development of the game, it just so happened that the moon kind of turned into... Australia."

Interest rising.

Posted by AMyggen

This looks sooooo similiar to the previous games, down to the identical HUD. I'm a fan of the franchise, but I don't know about this one...

Edited by SittingDuckz

Wow, that sure is Borderlands... But then again more Borderlands isn't a bad thing.

Posted by casper_

i see this as a kind of expansion pack and im still pretty psyched.

borderlands seems to garner a lot of negativity and sighing from people which im guessing has to do with the humor stuff... but the gameplay is fast paced and great and builds can be very creative.

For me these games are like an MMO, addictive as hell.

Posted by bboymaestro

I hope they bring in a metric fuckton of new guns.

Posted by thebunnyhunter

Im ready for some more Borderlands but im not too sure about this. I dont mind it being the same core game as Borderlands 2 but the environment being the moon i dont see how much diversity they can fit in. Also its not the main/same studio as the others (i think) so idk about that. The Ice and Laser weapons look neat though.

Edited by T3MPLESMITH

It sounds like these two guys have been recorded separately.

Posted by Veektarius

Been there, done that.

Posted by Mitch0712

Wow, you still have to pick up money and bullets manually from containers after opening them. I don't understand why it has to be like that. Money and loot from the ground gets picked up automatically!

Posted by CornBREDX

The problem with a pre-sequel: why do they have technology that didn't exist in the other games? =P

Anyway, ya it's borderlands. I never got into these games as they're more fun if you play with other people, but it's cool for people that like these games I suppose.

full new standalone sequel that is BL2 and is an expansion because we spent too much time on it and are scared we won't make enough money if we do it as DLC so here it is on a disc please buy it k thanks also full game not an expansion full independent gaem okay. okay!? shutup!

pls buy this we need monies. T________T

This. Can't understand how people don't get horribly bored of these games after the first few hours due to this very fact. The classes shouldn't have to specialise and lock out other options when you only have 1 F*CKING ACTIVE SKILL.

It's beyond monotonous.

Edited by gulinotm

I don't know if i'd call this "all new"

Wait you can play as claptrap? the fuck?

Posted by TheManWithNoPlan

Definitely more borderlands here. I guess that's a good thing for people who like these kinds of games.

I do!

Posted by Cuuniyevo

Is it weird that I was really annoyed when they didn't pick up the purple gun that dropped?

I'll probably get this at some point. I've had fun with the others and the dlc so far, and nothing they showed here seems terrible.

Edited by Robo

Looks ok. Definitely more Borderlands...for better or for worse. I wish they would've changed it up just a little bit more.

Also, coming out this fall but not on PS4/XBO. I don't own either console yet...and that's kinda why. And it's kinda lame.

Posted by Dalai

Looks like more Borderlands and I'm alright with that.

I'm not going to say I wouldn't like more active skills, but the system in place is pretty robust though. For any class you can create several builds that focus on something completely different. It wasn't that apparent to me at first either, but you'll figure it out when playing Ultimate Vault Hunter mode and getting your ass handed to you.

I really enjoyed playing Borderlands 2 for hundreds of hours. I'm actually going to get it for the Vita as well tomorrow.

Posted by billyok

Looks boring as ever.

Posted by Smorlock

They need to come up with a new box art gag for this series stat

Posted by mattchops

This game is going to be snooze-ville. If borderlands 2 taught me anything, it's that you can make a video game by browsing reddit for all your jokes.

Posted by TehPickle

I'm not a fan of this oxygen thing from what I've seen here. I realise why it's there of course, but I think there are better ways of contriving ways to perform new abilities without you having to find air hotspots to stand on every couple of minutes. Seems kinda dull.

Edited by Korolev

Oxygen Management? Yeah. Fun. I DO so love having a constantly ticking timer which I need to replenish. Great.

I really liked BL2, but oxygen management has never been fun in any game.

EDIT: Hm. Atmosphere is not the same thing as gravity, guys.

Edited by pweidman

Looks fun. As burnt on BL2 as I am, I'm sure I'll be down to revisit Borderlands in this game. Looks like enough new content to do so, even only on the previous systems.

Posted by SomeDeliCook

I have one question and one question only:

If Claptrap has an oxygen supply......... why?

Posted by clush

So THAT's where gravity comes from!

Posted by sp1k3_b0i

@korolev: Yeah having small domes that generate atmosphere wouldn't change gravity,however it would stop the items from flying out of the containers as long as the pressure inside the sealed containers and the domes were equal. Although from the footage it does look like it generates gravity as well.

Posted by moondogg

Ok, I'm down. Whatever Gearbox is working on better have creatable characters, classes and guns/equipment though.

Posted by AdequatelyPrepared

Oh hey, 2K Australia, I wonder if any of that will influence the ga-
*Hears the voice of Springs*
Oh Christ.

I liked BL2 until I realized what late-game bits of it were screwy, especially when it came to level progression and the drop rate of good weaponry. I hope this fixes that.

Posted by JeanLuc

Game looks fine but I feel like these guys did a bad job trying to sell it to me. They sounded like they were reading a script with zero emotion.

Edited by BasketSnake

Someone will hack the oxygen feature. Maybe SpaceAiden.
