    Technically this is true, it will have the letter 3 after the word Borderlands....

    xD

    It's going to do gangbusters on console that's for sure... on PC before the exclusivity period is expired... hmmm... not sure.

    My friend i made a new account to get in touch!, i need help. I dont want to violate any rules on this site, but i am lost trying to cap my fps the best possible way to 60 fps on my 120hz monitor. i do not think i have the back lighting or whatever it was i read something about, but i do have the newest RTSS and nvidia drivers. i was using Adaptive half refresh rate for Assasssins creed origins because its so demanding, i want to avoid as much tearing, ghosting,frame doubling, whatever jitters n crap possible, i was looking at some of your posts about it and i know my monitors actual refresh rate now, but beyond that im not sure what to do next. i was trying to mess around with clicking the scanline sync to x/2 or w/e and trying -10 or -20 in the number box, in 1 game it seemed good , in the other it capped me at 59 fps?, Any help would be awesome. can you inbox me here or can i post my e m ail ? ill check for a reply often

    I dunno, for all the praise this series got (most of it directed at the second game), it never grabbed me. I've tried playing no. 2 extensively during the few free weekends it got, but it never "clicked" with me. I like shooters that don't include rpg mechanics like levelling and stat based weapons. The only "rpg" fps' I like are those of the Deus Ex kind. Then again, I've always been a Fallout/Baldur's Gate player, than I was a Diablo player. I also found the "constant" humour annoying after a while. I guess this will be a pass for me too. I'll more likely finally grab RAGE2 after it gets the new areas added it.

    Borderlands 1 bored me tbh, and it took me couple of hours to like BL2 but it did click it for me, i played solo most of the time and really enjoyed it.

    I liked the Pre sequel better than BL2, the gameplay and characters were much better than BL2, but story wise it was very lackluster.

    Not too excited for this, looks almost exactly the same as Borderlands 2 but now with a slide mechanic. It has new abilities sure, but they look mostly like a "rage" mode button. As in, press button when bar fills up, become powerful for 10 seconds, and then you're back to playing Borderlands 2 (with ground breaking slide mechanic) again.

    Can't imagine playing one of these games for the story or writing, Borderlands always had really lowbrow humour and a plot that feels like an afterthought, but on the plus side Anthony Burch has nothing to do with 3, so it might become drastically funnier.

    I dunno, just feeling overall meh about this game.

    ^ This. I'm also struggling to see any real visual improvements over BL2. For me it already looks dated. And gameplay-wise it just feel strongly over-hyped.

    To me "another" Borderlands is exactly what I'm looking for. I don't want them to add in a bunch of unnecessary mechanics, or try and turn it into an MMO like Destiny, Division, etc. I just want a good FPS dungeon crawler I can zone out and enjoy pretty colors. Games like this are what I use to relax and decompress. I'm not looking for Oscar winning stories or "pulse pounding" blah blah blah. I just want to snipe guys and see the experience bar go up.

    If it turns out as technically polished and overall good as Borderlands 2, I'll be very happy.

    If the difficulty is anything like BL2 i'm not interested.

    Hated the difficulty scaling.

    I really enjoyed BL1 and BL2, but after playing Destiny 2 and then going back to BL2, the shooting in the latter kind of sucks in comparison. I'll probably wait for a deep discount on this one.

    Too hard.

    I'm extremely casual these days and play everything on Easy if possible.

    Aside from the raid bosses, the game is pretty easy overall. Of course it could get crazy difficult with overpowered levels, but that's entirely optional.

    If you want to breeze through the game then you can just use the save editor and gift yourself legendary gear (e.g., Bee + Sandhawk or Sham + Norfleet).

    I know you're referring to GPU PhysX, but PhysX is still in the game as it's integrated into the engine and used for all of the game's physics. And to be honest, the updated software PhysX in UE4 is practically on par with the GPU PhysX that was used in BL2, without the huge performance hit and stuttering problems. I remember I had a dedicated PhysX card that I used or BL2, and it still stuttered occasionally. If you watch that trailer you posted above closely, you will see tons of really nice particle effects used very liberally all over the game but still running very smoothly.

    I used to be a big proponent of GPU driven physics, but with the advent of multicore CPUs and 256 bit SIMD processing, there is just no reason for it anymore because the GPU already has its plate full with rendering while the CPU often remains under utilized for the most part. All of the effects that used to be exclusive to GPU PhysX can now be easily replicated with the current software PhysX.

    Even in that comparison video you can see the massive FPS drop.

    The vortex grenades in BL2 with the PhysX effects cranked up were fantastic. Took my dedicated 970 GPU t it's knees, but it was great. :)
