Gearbox Teases New IP; More Borderlands 2 DLC

PC Gamer has word from the Nerdist Podcast where Gearbox Software president Randy Pitchford mentions they are "building an original IP for the next generation that we’ll announce sometime later." He also dispels the notion that there will be no more DLC for Borderlands 2 with the season pass fulfilled. Au contraire, says. Well, he didn't say exactly that, he said this:

"Everyone has this expectation that those would be the four DLCs and then that’s it," Pitchford said. "We’re going to do more. We’re going to do some other things. We don’t have details yet about it exactly."

"We’ve got more stuff in the hopper that we’re planning and that we’re getting pretty excited about. So if you are a Borderlands fan, you don’t have to be afraid that that’s the end of it."

BL2 is a functionally better and more polished game. However, there was way more care put into the original game's design. Levels are detailed and consistent. The second playthrough is challenging and the majority of the DLC was great. For the sequel the DLC is mostly forgettable crap, the environments are big and under-utilized, and later playthroughs are simply not challenging. Making enemies into bullet sponges quickly loses the fun factor. Borderlands 2 seemed to follow the kitchen sink philosophy of design. It has everything and none of it is particularly great. In that way it reminds me of the distinctions between Fallout 1 and Fallout 2. The first is a tighter, more consistent experience. The second is a huge monster of a game you can easily get bored and quit halfway through.

Please dont tell me you got bored and quit halfway through one of the best if not THE best RPGs ever made. Im sorry but I respectfully disagree, Fallout2 is much better than Fallout1 any way you look at it.

I got through BL2's first and second playthrough online and maxed out my Zero character in casual random games. I also completed all the DLC at least once. BL1 I played dozens of times.

Fallout 1 vs. Fallout 2 is a debate that's been going on for more than a decade. I can tear apart your notion 2 is better and explain in detail so many examples as to why such as the horrible mandatory Temple of Trials tutorial, the over-reliance of slapstick humor and pop culture references, the stupid story, and the painfully tedious Enclave oil rig ending. Every time I replay Fallout 1 I finish it. Every time I try to replay Fallout 2 I quit shortly after Vault City and the NCR because the quests are terrible and you have little to no control over the pacing of the game. Fallout 1 you can play how you want 100% of the time. But this is so far off the topic.
