Borderlands 3 Mentioned

Gearbox Software lead writer Anthony Burch mentioned they are already toying with ideas for Borderlands 3 on The Totally Rad Show. This is noted on MP1st, where this relieves their concern that Gearbox "will ever let the fans of Borderlands get to see a third installment of this franchise," since Borderlands 2 shipped almost a full two weeks ago. Thanks VG247.

I do wish this game was a bit more detailed with weapon damage, too. Take shotguns - you end up with one that does 14x30 and one that does 16x27. Yeah, not the most complicated calculation, but it would be nice if it put a "=432" next to it.

And, while I greatly appreciate the firing range, which helps you realize just how much damage that piston that's 48 with explosive damage does vs the one that's a standard 70, but it would be nice if it had a running total. I just put an entire mag into a guy and he lit on fire - did I do more damage than the entire mag of the weapon that does 2.5x damage but no fire?

People have been clamoring for a DPS stat on the weapons, but Gearbox refuses to do it. It's not as if it's secret, their formula for damage has been on the Wiki for ages, but they seem to think that it loses "fun" if people can see the DPS with elemental damage included...

Yeah, it doesn't make sense to me either.
