Well, it isn't like I haven't been trying to drive this point home with you vault hunters. Posted Image

Two 'Borderlands' Things You Need To Play Before 'Borderlands 3' Gets Here (Besides 1 And 2)

I think I might fire up a new play through of TftBL just to freshen my memory from that.

Early reviews look great but also suggest there might be some serious performance issues or crash tendencies.

Still lifting a review embargo five days in advance usually signals great confidence.

Think I might end up pre-ordering it.

The commercial that is in rotation now is ridiculous.

The launch trailer?

They're funny trailers but I don't think there's enough actual framing of the plot or gameplay.

Also I'm really not digging the two baddies. They're lame. Unless there's more to them than shown they seem like a step back.

Not the launch trailer, but the adverts that have been in rotation on television here in the U.S. I caught one of them during football at my buddy's place.

There's a few of them >

One of my go to review sources gives it a 9/10


I'm going to wait and see about twins. I will agree they seem kind of lame though. I do like the idea that the bandit clans are being united.

It's been pointed out that the early reviews came only to select outlets, with others refused copies for 'security reasons.' Other outlets, rather than being given a review copy of the game, have been told that they will get a new account on the Epic Store with the game preloaded, but that this version of the game is a pre-release, not-entirely-finished version. Which just seems a weird thing to do.

Any of you guys buying a copy for PS4?

Not sure how much co-op I want to play but it would be fun to hookup over the weekend.

Fired 'er up!

Heh, new sounds with 2K and Gearbox logos upon launch. I sorta miss the "yeeeeearrrrrrgh!", but the new is pretty sweet.

And damn, is there a game out there that does an opening cinematic better than the Borderlands series? Fuck that shit is like shooting "get pumped juice" right into my veins!

So, I'm sitting on the vault hunter selection screen. I'm nervously undecided, tapping my fingers together in anxious anticipation, and mulling it over. Right now I'm heavily leaning towards FL4K and Moze (love that mech action skill). Zane is looking good too. Dammit, I think I'm going to go with FL4K. Eff it! I can start a new game with the others later! FL4K it is!

Played with Zane yesterday. Thinking about starting over with Moze today.

Edit: oh for fucks sake. Like BL2 the intro is unskippable. It's sooo looooong.

Holy schnikes! I've played with guns of varied attributes, but damn, some of them burn through so much ammo this early on it can be a detriment. I used a rapid fire pistol's double barrel option on one of Hammerlock's 'Legendary Hunts' on Pandora and whooboy, I was melting, but burned through my ammo lickety-split. I'm playing as FL4K, so I let my pet play distraction with the beast and turned to sniper rifle hits from a safe distance back.

I just reached Sanctuary and am relieved to see you can increase your ammo, but damn it's quite pricey.

Just a tip if you guys aren't aware yet - check your social option while playing and go to mail. You'll get weapons gifted to you for things you achieve while playing.

Ah, it's in the social menu that the mail is located. I'd been running around Sanctuary looking for some kind of mailbox.

Ammo was a serious problem for me on Pandora. It was pretty frustrating constantly burning through all ammo, made worse by underpowered weapons. So much so that I rerolled Moze instead of Zane. Much more firepower and made sure to buy better guns from Marcus.

More than I ever did in BL2, I am cognizant of my ammo maintenance. I've always been a player that opens every thing around, but in this game whenever I see an ammo vending machine, I make sure to fill up. That used to be the case in BL2 prior to going into a mini-boss/big boss battle, but now I make sure to fill up to max whenever I come across a vending machine. And still there have been times I've run out.

It's been frustrating to run out of ammo but from a game design perspective I can actually respect it. Ammo was never a problem in BL2. Now I actually have to think instead of just dumping rounds.

Enjoying the shit out of this game.

Yeah, I always fill up on ammo, unlike other games.

I also hang onto differing weapon types in case i run out and need to switch.

Rolling Fl4k with primarily a Jakobs shotgun atm. The action of blowing them into the air and finishing them off as theyre mid air is so f'ing satisfying.
