I'm fine with stylized, but that just doesn't look like much fun to me.

Yeah, that was a serious WTF article for me. Of course that cop is still on active duty rather than being charged with assault and wrongful arrest.

Ok, I played some more tonight. Ran the Strike mission twice. Failed the first time, beat it the second. Verdict: This shit is boooooring.

I don't see myself getting into it at all. It's weird, because it seems like it should be something I'd like. I love the Borderlands games. This just doesn't feel right though.

hmmm, wen't down that hallway and there was a robot sweeping with a broom but couldn't go any further, the door wouldn't open.

I didn't see the door open the first time i went down there either. Went back and it was open. Think it's the door to the left at the end of the hall.

Overall it feels ok, but without some way to judge how the progression and other abilities will feel, and how repetitive the game will feel overall, I'm still on the fence on this one.

Matchmaking did seem really slow. I waited a few minutes, but it was still searching, and at 1/3, so I cancelled out and exited. I'll give it some more time later and see if it gets any better.

Which ran really well (after disabling AA/lowering Shadows, like I do on most titles at 4K, on a 980 Ti)... I wasn't staring at the frame rate during the Strike (that I played 3 times), but did not notice any frame rate issues, and thoroughly enjoyed my time with it. Probably helps that I played with a friend that wouldn't run off every time I died heh (and vice versa).

Think this will be enjoyable playing solo? Are pub groups a thing? My gaming opportunities tend to be rather random and inconsistent, so any kind of regular gaming time with others is unlikely for me.

Oh, and I'm most likely all in on Shadow of War too. Had a lot of fun with the first one

Since I never played the first, I'm hoping this one will feel fresh and fun for me. I'm downloading the beta now, so I'll hopefully be playing in a couple of hours. Maybe that will be enough to tell me whether it's worth pre-ordering for whatever extra stuff that gets me. Of course there's 2 months before release, so no real rush to pre-order.

Seemed kinda weird to me that there was no mention of the Destiny 2 PC Beta starting today. Open beta starts tomorrow. I'm hoping to get to try it out. Don't really have any idea what to expect yet, even after watching some vids. Hoping that it will still be fun even if I'm mostly playing solo.

I've played most previous BL games in solo. I just can't commit to a time when people available to play coop.
If solo will be an afterthought in BL3 I'll skip it.

So did I, but I would not call it a fun experience.... and quite a bit of "raid" content is not accessible to you and a few of the boss fights are absolutely unfair (not spawning any easy to kill enemies to get back on foot, the Jack fight in particular comes to mind)

But really it's my primary fear for Anthem, when a game demos on E3 in coop, then it's designed as coop game. SP will be horrible to play.


Yeah, that was my concern about Anthem too. Game looks amazing, but I can't really dedicate time to playing with a group on anything resembling a consistent basis. I do remember reading something from an interview where they said it would be fully playable as a solo game, but you could probably say that about Borderlands too.

I don't have the weapons to defeat the side bosses.
Note that the bosses everyone is complaining about are referred to as "Raid Bosses". They're not meant to be taken down solo. It's not a matter of the weapon you're using...hit them with a party of 3+ or 2+ if you're geared for multiplayer play.

I don't do multiplayer in these kinds of games. Don't understand why they would gate that stuff for multi. Why not just scale the difficulty to the number of players?

Yeah weird that this comes up again...

But anyway, I love Borderlands, and I agree. After I played Destiny, with its much, much better gunplay/feel, it was VERY hard to go back to something as arcadey as Borderlands. And the endgame very poorly done (scaling resulting in being one-twoshot... in a non-realism game where everybody has guns).
Never played Destiny, but you're saying Destiny's controller gunplay is superior to Borderlands mouse and keyboard?

In terms of accuracy, fair point, but I meant the way the guns handle. In Destiny, they feel like legit guns. Recoil, impact, scopes, etc. It feels more grounded that Borderlands' "this shotgun fires 8,000 rocket pellets and can't hit the broad side of a barn". I realize Borderlands is supposed to be crazy like that, but Destiny's handling of loot and randomization was a tad more subtle, and the guns felt much more pleasant to use.

I guess if Borderlands was to keep its own kooky randomized gun-loot system, it's gonna have to take some liberties there, however. I'm just hoping they look at Destiny's handling of things and take some notes.

My main issue with Borderlands was the mountain of junk weapons that drop. I think they need to tighten that up somehow so that we get fewer, but better, drops. Yeah, they're still mostly not going to be good enough to replace whatever you're already using, but at least there would be much less junk to deal with.

Also, the endgame bosses seemed to be tuned to players having the god-tier weapons, which take forever to grind for. Seems like there should be some difficulty settings to adjust for things like that. If I don't want to spend 100 hours grinding for the best guns, then I shouldn't have to face a boss designed for those guns.

They have seriously made a lot of improvements! New map window/overlay, new help system, major performance improvements, etc. Oh, and the 6 new acts of course! So glad we don't have to repeat the same 4 acts anymore. So much nicer to only go through them once.

Utilities are regulated because they are necessities and vital. You need water, heat, gas, etc. You do not need Facebook or Google. The internet on the other hand...yes, that's another necessity to modern life. Yet the GOP doesn't think that should be regulated like a utility.

This, precisely.

Cutter, I suggest you petition your local government to eliminate their police force. Clearly you don't need them...

That's right, we don't. At least I don't. Maybe you're all too weak, stupid, and cowardly you NEED police but most of the world has got along just fine without them for its entire history and that includes most of the world today. They're the single biggest cost to any city and provide the least ROI.

Sure, and if you'd like to go back to the living standards of centuries ago, be my guest. But around here, we like living past 50 and having access to the trappings of modern society.

I'll still keep a gun around, and I'll avoid interaction with police whenever possible, but they do serve a purpose. We just need to rein them in since the lack of accountability is corrosive to the relationship between the police and the public.

CSGO stickers and graffiti claim second place, slow week in the gaming world.

Or, to many of the tens of millions of people involved with one of the biggest communities that exist in gaming, it was one of the most exciting weeks of the year... I'm not into it, either, but you're essentially dismissing the television ratings for the first week of February because you don't watch pro football.
I thought the Steam top 10 best selling games list was for top selling games. But it's their list and if they want to include people spending a small fortune on a collection of pretend stickers, so be it.

Making money is making money. Doesn't really matter how the game does it, as long as people are willing to part with their cash.
