Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

Recommended Posts

No glory here. Waiting to see if this is any good before throwing money at it. Not made by Gearbox, so I'm gonna let everyone else be the guinea pigs. lol

Some regions are unlocked already and playing it here in NA via vpn.  Its basically more of the same.  Just add new enemies and lots of new stuff.  Seems the basic game-play is the same as BL2.  I'd venture to say on the surface you'd like it pk.  However you've played the previous 2 games a lot more than me, and are very familiar with the mechanics.  So take my recommendation with a grain-of-salt :).

I'm worried about the gimmicky aspects. Resource management (oxygen) and super jumps via your oxygen tanks.

Haven't had much of a chance to play yet.  I'm just at the part where oxygen becomes an issue.  The prologue was pretty fun though.  A few places pulled my performance down considerably.  below link is to one of the reviews so-far.  They have it a 3.5/5.

Yeah, glad I held out on this. Currently watching Tuna play in his stream while in TS with him and another friend who is playing it. All three of us agree this could have been a DLC. In fact, all the fans wanted a moonbase DLC in the BL2 timeline. Not before it.

 

Ah well. I'll still pick it up when it goes on sale.

The Claptrap's skill is almost random, but it's based on co-op players around you, enemies, your health, shields etc. So, he might pull off the Gunzerker's skill, Siren's, Hypo nealing needle, Rubber Ducky (reflect bullets and bounce all the time) etc.

 

That's the closest I'll get to another Siren in this game and it makes me a little sad.

They really do cram as much references as posible.

 

Side mission once again

 

I missed the last part of the sentence on screenshot but was "screw you toby van Adobe, you've got my only soap".

I haven't had a chance to play too much, but I am enjoying it so far. It's just different enough from BL2 to keep me playing. Yes, same engine, mechanics (for the most part) etc. etc. But it is still pretty fun. Would I have preferred a DLC within the continuity of BL2 instead, almost cetainly. Do I regret getting what they did give, not at all. Watching the trailers, and listening to coverage before release, I was concerned about the O2 and how lower gravity would affect game play (will it be to floaty? etc.) but after playing for a few hours it really doesn't detract from the gameplay, but adds a level of resource management, but not to a large or unnecessary degree (all IMHO, of course)

 

when it comes to DLC on disc, I don't like the practice, do I understand why it is done, yes.  It all comes down to how it is handled. they have stated that all ( ALL ) DLC will be covered under the Season Pass, as opposed to the hot mess BL2's DLC was, so whether freezing the development at such a point where a dlc character is on the disc, or released later, as long as they stick with their statement, I don't much care.

 

...well, that was longer than I anticipated...anyway, I'm liking it so far, it's good to discover a game for the first time, and get to know it.  If you are playing it, and want some company, drop me a line.
