News Comments > Gearbox on Battleborn & Borderlands 3

Never called them greedy

Just said they were wasting time.

And to counter your gears of war comment. Bungie pretty much only stuck with Halo, and fans were happy with that. For years and years. Fans got upset at Epic because the gears of war sequels kept getting worse, and upsetting the fans of the series.

News Comments > Gearbox on Battleborn & Borderlands 3
1. Re: Gearbox on Battleborn & Borderlands 3 Jul 22, 2014, 12:19 Gadzooks
Gearbox has had failure after failure when it has come to releasing games. Borderlands was their only semi recent big hit for an original IP. Logically, one one would think "Stick with what is working". What you see here is no different than when a character actor tries to venture out into a different field and make a movie that requires them to be totally different from the figurehead fans have come to love. Most of the time... MOST... its a flop, and a pointless waste of time. For both the actor and the fans who just want to see another movie with them doing what everyone loves.

Gearbox is trying to prove that they CAN create something that is actually good, despite their failures, that ISNT borderlands. Unfortunately for us, it just means that we have to wait that much longer until they finally get around to making borderlands 3, when their other ventures turn out to be mediocre side trips.

Looks like they are betting all their chips with this move.

They have a TON of major changes they are making to the game, and it looks like they are going live with these changes with no openbeta testing. The game right now, is very MEH. The changes look really good, and sound really good, but no one knows if they really are good or not. So the game goes live, and everyone is in for something new. If its bad, that will pretty much be the last you hear of this game.

Orcs Must Die! died along with this generic moba shit.

Such a fucking shame.

Totally agree... way to take a fun and entertaining series that allowed for great co-op fun, and completely sell out by trying to jump onto the already sailed moba bandwagon.

I would have paid 40+ dollars for a true 3rd installment of Orcs must Die, but i wont be touching this moba crap with a 10 foot stick. (unless its pointy, and then it will just be to stab it to make sure it dies.)

News Comments > WildStar Beta Open To All
28. Re: WildStar Beta Open To All May 8, 2014, 15:27 Gadzooks
Reasons I wont be playing Wildstar after having been in the beta for several months:

1. Game performs AWFUL. Very close to release and the devs still say "We havent optimized the game yet" Sorry, this close to release, there isnt going to be a magic patch. No reason that a cartoon game should drop to under 30 FPS at ANY point in the game on a high end system.

2. Game blatantly is aimed at you being higher level in order to have fun. This isnt typical WoW "You cant do raids and stuff until max level". This is "The game is boring as hell for the first 35 levels". Even WoW had fun gameplay at low levels. It just wasnt raid content with uber gear. Games should be fun from the moment you log in, and wildstar... isnt.

3. Large PvP is an unbalanced mess and a ridiculous AoE spamfest. Watch how in the first month of release, everyone in PvP will be medics and engineers.

4. Quests in the game are more dull and boring than quests in WoW were at release. "Run around the room and find me these 4 books" Really? How is this fun? Not to mention, most quest chains seem incomplete and have no real finale to them. Do step 1, then step 2, then step ... wait... no step 3? What? Thats it? Sigh.

5. The sheer lack of video options and forced video settings is absurd in a modern day game. Overuse of bloom and full screen glow effect, blurry filters, and awful view distance make this game a headache to look at. Unless this up coming beta adds new video options that let you enable/disable these things, there is no excuse for the game NOT to have them.

Those are just the 5 main reasons I wont be playing Wildstar at release. Maybe in 12 months, after they have had time to really finalize the game, add things needed, and fix stuff, ill give a try. I hope its still a sub game then, because I really hate F2P. Cant help but thing it will be F2P by then however, since the game doesnt make a great first impression.

Recipe to ruin a great game series:

- 1 hit indie game to start the ball rolling
- 1 follow up sequel adding polish, features and co-op to really enhance the fun
- Mix in several low priced well made DLC addons

- Let sit for 2 years to let the flavor set in

- Announce 3rd game in the series
- Make it a MOBA
- Make it Free 2 Play

- Stir vigorously for a few months.


Wonder why your meaty and hearty original series is now nothing more than a soup sandwich.

On a personal note, I hope this game fails hard. Its obvious the decisions to go moba and f2p are based off pure greed. I will not support decisions like this, even from a game series that I previously enjoyed.

News Comments > Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Confirmed
19. Re: Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Confirmed Apr 9, 2014, 12:39 Gadzooks
Bungie beat Gearbox to the punch.

Destiny is where BL could have ultimately been heading. So much about Destiny resembles BL as far as gameplay and mechanics, but Bungie took it to the next level with the whole persistant universe bit.


BL2 finishes with the BL universe/world opening up in a way that would have allowed the series to be EXACTLY what Destiny is hyping to be.

I can only hope that Gearbox has big plans for BL3, and that this pre-sequel is just to bide the time for fans. Ill play this new game, and most likely have a ton of fun doing it despite the fact that I want to play a vault hunter, not a hyperion mercenary. If Jack is "back", I want him to be the enemy, not my boss. Dragon Keep did managed to do this perfectly despite the games main story conclusion.


And WTF Gearbox... Dragon Keeps ending led fans to believe that a DLC was going to take us to the Hyperion Moon base. The whole thing with interogating the hyperion soldier for the pass codes to get to it. What a huge let down when I heard that no more DLC was coming for BL2.

People like to talk crap about gearbox and the shoddy games they put out. Things like Duke and Aliens.... Just total letdowns. Ive always said that the ONE good thing to come out of Gearbox Software has been Borderlands. The people behind the first 2 games and most of the DLC have really done a great job. Sure, its not some players cup of tea, but its not because its a crap made game, it just means its not their style of game. Gearbox needs to stop trying to branch out, and just focus on what has been successful to them.

Always happy for more borderlands content. Such a fun, well made series.

Im going to view this more as DLC for BL2 however. I can see why it will be stand alone, not really fitting into the story of BL2, but it doesnt seem like its going to be enough of a leap to really be a 3rd installment.

This will help hold me over while I wait for BL3.

There is quite a huge difference between the PvP the devs are trying to sell you with this game, and the actual pvp that goes on in it.

Actual pvp (the above video) doesnt look anything like the stuff hyped in this dev speak.

The forgot to add a feature:

- Low polygon and low texture resolution graphics ported directly form the mobile game!

Mobile ports are even worse than console ports.

News Comments > Sacred 3 This Summer
4. Re: Sacred 3 This Summer Feb 19, 2014, 16:28 Gadzooks
Sacred 1 was semi decent, but kinda limiting. For the time period though, it was a nice alternative to D2 if you were burnt out on D2. It suffered from not having a piss poor system of playing multiplayer with friends.

Sacred 2 was just a mess. The mechanics, the attempt at a more 3d game, the silly game design choices, and of course, the BUGS.

Sacred Citidel brought me back to the days of spending time at the arcades, but wasnt anything like an ARPG. They just marketed the games name.

So I cant help but think Sacred 3 at this point, is going to disappoint fans of the original one.

His theory is that any developer will eventually be able to put their games on Steam.

And won't that make Steam so wonderful to attempt to buy things from...

It'll basically turn it into any app store. Where there's a few good things buried amidst millions of pieces of crap.

And this is different than it is now? lol.

Games, in general, are crap. Go all the way back to brick and mortar shops, and most of the games on the shelf were crap. The challenge was finding the couple of decent games amongst the piles of crap.

Steam already has a slew of crap and junk games, no different than any other game retailer. If you are using steam as a virtual store front to browse through new games in hopes of finding a good one, you are doing it wrong. Instead, do this from your research on the rest of the web (this site for instance) and recommendations from other gamers/friends. Then, just use the simple search box on steam to find the exact game you want (you know, the one that isnt crap).
