    I'm definitely in. I've been replaying through two right now, so I could be up fr some new hotness in six months.

    I find the first one the worst, shooting does not feel right, and mobs respawn way to fast imo, had to kill mobs 3-4 times in some area's b4 getting through, the others were much better in this regard.

    Borderlands wasn't bad. It was pretty good but I preferred Borderlands 2 more. That's just me though. Hopefully #3 will be no worse than #2. Looking forward to the finished product.

    Whatever Gearbox's flaws are... they are a one hit wonder and this series is it. It's time for 3. Do it right.

    They need to do something different this time around. If it's just the same gameplay and mechanics as 2 with new weapons/skins/areas, I'm not really that interested.

    I was not impressed with TPS at all.

    Let them take their time and get it right IMO. I'm willing to wait. Too many shitty games in the gaming world right now if you ask me. Mainly because the devs didnt do it right or the publishers forcing the game out before its done.

    Yeah I am tired of the AAA game companies putting out buggy and incomplete games at full price and waiting months or paying way more than the base price for a complete polished game. It is difficult to convince publishers to consider the player base over stockholder profit unfortunately.

    Gearbox must have another project lined up that they can take money from in order to finish development.

    Snark aside: I'm interested in seeing if they're going to make changes to the Borderlands formula and find ways to make it feel fresh again. After Pre-Sequel I was pretty much done with the typical Borderlands formula and I'm still not over the burnout that game caused.

    I like the cartoon look. Makes it standout from the crowd and just fits with the humor.

    Just about every game has a pseudo-realistic look. The cell-shaded cartoon look was part of what I liked about Borderlands.

    I remember when borderlands did have a realistic look before they scrapped it and went with the cel shaded cartoon stuff.

    I prefer the cartoony look, the game should stay goofy at least visually. Also consistency, no point in changing it, plenty of unoriginal realistic-ish shooters out there. Not sure how they could improve or change it, maybe more variety in classes/talents, maybe each class could have more than one active skill for once.

    This please. I get pandered to and preached at by nearly every other form of media 24/7 already, I don't need my sci-fi space shooter to have strong opinions on whatever the progressive issue of the hour happens to be.

    I hope they implement the new stuff they demo'ed a while back, looks to be a big improvement... but I'm not holding my breath especially cuz it comes from that one dude and he clearly said "it might not happen for the actual game" - like that'll save him once the game is released and everyone freaks out on him :D

    I remember too, that's when I stopped caring about the game.

    That is Maya from Borderlands 2. Pretty sure they've used a higher-res version of that shot for Borderlands 2 promotion. So a remaster of 2 or a Switch port?

    Being that they said "another game" I'm inclined to agree that this isn't part of the BL3 tease. The game has already been "remastered" (Handsome Jack Collection). A switch port of BL2 (or Handsome Jack Collection) seems most likely.

    Its all but guaranteed we will see BL3 announced at PAX.

    Switch port is still pretty likely also, its the only platform left to milk BL2.

    So they're releasing Borderlands Eternal for iOS and Android? Is this a joke?

    The NES doesn't have that big a color palette. :p (maybe TG-16?)

    Sweeney? What does Epic have to do with this? Randy Pitchford is the lying bastard behind Aliens:CM.

    Wah! Something went south...

    It’s Borderlands 3 we are talking about. If you like BL1 or BL2 then this ought to be good. If not, move on.

    Gearbox will not screw up BL.

    ACM was just a clustercuss all the way around from Gearbox to Sega to the outsourced studio... (can’t remember who...)

    Borderlands 3 will be a good game if you’re into Borderlands. I’m calling it now. If I’m wrong I’ll be very surprised.

    Let’s hold back the pitchforks and torches at least until we know...
