News Comments > Borderlands 3 Released
40. Re: Borderlands 3 Released Sep 13, 2019, 16:12 Verno
 
I'm watching streams and man the writing is absolutely awful in a cringe inducing way. The game looks OK although there are a lot of weird performance drops but it could be the streamer. But man I can't get over how bad the writing is, not like writing a Borderlands game asks a lot from its authors in the first place. I was already pretty tired of the gameplay formula and it looks like more of the same based on what I'm seeing here so I'm giving this a hard pass.

Game is super fun, I get a lot of X-Files vibes from the story and characters. Once you get your powers it really opens up and I love visual direction of the levels. Lots of visual storytelling and stuff to show you where to go more organically so you don't need the map. This is much better than Quantum Break and deserves more attention than it's getting.

2K being the publisher that had a trailer for their microtransactions in the 2K Live series haha. The sad thing is I know some dudes at the office who play that shit and they've been basically conditioned that it's normal.

CS:GO is heavily supported by microtransactions, not unit sales and its still pretty popular worldwide due to low entry specs. It's a big cafe game in other countries.

They've done an outstanding job with the FLC/DLC for this game. I hope they can fix the turn times in Mortal Empires though, even with the mod to do so they are obscene. I'm having a great time with a Vampire Coast playthru as Noctilus, just cruising around sacking cities and establishing coves then taking off when the local armies come stomping over.

Kind of amusing but other games have since surpassed it. Wollay just couldn't keep up with the pace due to his full time job.

I hope they sentence that aircraft mechanic to life in prison with no parole.

This is definitely one of those times you send a very strong message.


Mechanic claims the sabotage was about a contract dispute, but happens to be named "Abdul-Majeed Marouf Ahmed Alani."

Hmmmmm...

ISLAMOPHOBE! OFF WITH HIS HEAD!

All kidding aside, it does seem to be related to the ongoing contract disputes. There have been accusations going back and forth about this for awhile - AA had something ridiculous like 950 extra flight cancellations they attribute to the mechanics unions using their position as leverage. What troubles me more is what if these idiots screw up and do worse than cause a delay or cancellation?

Facebook and Youtube dine out on extremes, conspiracy theories and other nonsense. We should really be holding their feet to the fire. If they don't want to be responsible platform owners then the government can step in to regulate them or levy massive fines until they get the message. The whole free speech argument is bullshit as it doesn't apply to private platforms and these people are damaging society for profit.

Facebook has shown repeatedly that it cannot be trusted to police itself, quite the opposite in fact.

The correct URL is this one and he posted the update early because hes out the rest of the day.

Is this the patch with the graphical revamp? I keep trying to enjoy POE but can't, something with the animations and graphics just feels really off and unsatisfying. I know a lot of people like it and I'm in the minority here but I really feel like the visuals aren't doing the rest of the game justice.

5ghz all-core would actually be pretty impressive and Intel retains the IPC lead anyway, people really should only be turning up their noses at them over their lavish margins IMO. And I say that as someone with a 3900X.

I got this awhile ago and its really boring. It's not terribly difficult and what little challenge there is comes from the user interface being annoying. It's just not fun, give it a hard pass. I don't want to be mean to the creators but it really felt like no one making this game gave a shit about it, its just so fucking mediocre. About the only cool feature is the mission achievement rewards but that's been done to death by other TDs.

Non-issue, markets self-correct as the demographics of their revenue sources change. Look at other popular forms of media like music and movies which have shifted significantly. The gaming industry leans so far to the left as it is, you can't force these things to happen overnight.

This guys alleged behavior was not illegal as far as I can tell, though specifics are a little hard to come by. He was essentially accused of being a creep, and having abusive (not physically) relationships. The authorities can't do anything about stuff that isn't illegal. Society has to handle that itself.

It's also worth noting that his sister claimed he was abused and suffered from some personality disorders as well. Unfortunately with his death we don't know whether this is fact or fiction. In terms of "society handling" this situation, I don't think death is the desirable outcome from a reasonable society so perhaps people should really examine what we want to happen in these scenarios.

It's priced so that you can get a discount on a new game, play it in a month and cancel. They are just counting on you forgetting to cancel.

I've been using it at home already for 3 years but we can't use it at the office for what should be obvious reasons (Fortune 500). The office being the place its most useful too. My complaint about Cortana was just a general rant, its terrible and they need to do what they did with A/V awhile ago - buy a competent firm who already makes a decent product and integrate that instead. But no, we get the Bing/Cortana show logjammed in for <reasons>.
