Op Ed

Newsweek - Buying 'Borderlands 3' Has Become a Moral Decision, Screwing Developers.
"Borderlands 3 is still one of the most hyped about games of 2019, but an avalanche of negative press and toxic behavior has tarnished the brand. Employees who financially depend on the game being a success are being sabotaged by those that run their company. It's hard to ignore all the politics and drama when you just want to play a first-person shooter that has guns that shoot smaller guns with legs. There's a human toll to pay for all of this. With so much external baggage, it will be interesting to see how high that toll might be."

I enjoyed the Borderlands series up to this point, but hey it's not really that great, a nice diversion, shoot stuff, see nifty damage numbers pop up, find the most OP weapons, repeat. It's not that great tho, I can wait a few years (and not contribute to the predatory profit taking that only benefits a few fat cats at the top), like I did for the whole series and buy it via bargin bin. It is just not that great of a game. (Brain dead AI that either rushes you or magically spawns behind you and on your flanks, whoop de doo, plus mob draw distance that is way shorter than the range of the games sniper weapons, how dumb is that.)

the company assholes bullied a streamer just because he had some inside information. The assholes were the ones whose security leaked. I would not touch this game period and justify assholes like this in the industry.

There are plenty of shooters and screw you if you buy the game.

Its a fucking game. Drama is about whiny fuckers with a exaggerated sense of personal worth. Guy shows up at your door. Does he have a warrant. no. the answer is and fuckoff and die, and slam the door. They arent gestapo. There shitty P.I.s with dumb business cards. They cant do shit. So still, fuck off and die.

Nah, it's simple brah. Buy it and you're a scumbag making Sweeny richer and exploiting people intentionally. Don't and you're a better person for it. There's no middle ground in shit like this.
