    Oh, really? I gave up after a few minutes as I thought it was stuck (went super-laggy with FPS in the single digits and I couldn't take it anymore). Maybe I'll try it again.

    The patch is now live(at least in my neck of the US). 379MB... So far I haven't had any issues with the game. I also use DX12 runs better than the DX11. Other than the little under 2 mini load time it goes good from there. Slow ass internet so I'll report back when it gets done and I mess around a little bit. BTW my gamer name is MuTT420 if anyone would like to add another peep to their friends list.

    My game runs a lot better now, still get some occasional stutters here and there but I can now use scoped weapons without any problems. Just played a good 3hrs and had a lot of fun!

    I'm having a blast. $35 is a really good deal, I'd snag it. Other than the long load time(running dx12 runs better for me) I have had a pretty smooth experience with it. IMO it's a lot better than BL2(it was awesome too). The gun combinations are awesome(and kinda crazy). Just my 2 cents. If you snag it add me to your friends list on Epic. MuTT420 If you liked BL2 I'm pretty sure you'll like 3! :D

    Decided I’m going to give this game a break until a proper performance patch is released, the games running significantly worse for me since the first patch released.

    I don't think it officially supports SLI.
    Which, trying to run it in SLI if it doesn't support it could cause performance issues in itself.

    Doesn’t really matter what configuration you use sadly, single GPU and SLi are both CPU limited in DX11 and DX12 doesn’t support multiGPU and is being super wonky after the last few patches.

    Loading into a new areas loses me around 20fps in DX12 now until I restart the game, super frustrating. Some sort of memory leak maybe.

    Yeah I am having a total blast with the game, even the stuttering seems to have gone now. I put many hours in to BL2. BL3 is just BL2 with more stuff. The weapon combos are better, I tend to find I end up switching out weapons on a more regular basis and have found my play style is faster and more up close than it was in previous BL games, though I am putting that down to my Amara build.

    A few things though, you end up going to different worlds however it's all a bit pointless they could have just set the game on Pandora and set the 'different worlds' as extra biomes of Pandora. Yes it means they can make much larger more sweeping changes to the looks and styles of the levels (worlds) but they are certainly not as big and as open as Pandora was.

    The story isn't as bad as everyone is making it out to be. It's just it was following Tales from and BL2 and Handsome Jack and whatever way that was a hard act to follow. It's better than BL1 and strings the events of the game along nicely and it does have one or two shocking moments.

    Badasses, my god what nugget at Gearbox thought it was a good idea to give almost every Badass a multi firing RPG. The number of times you get ganked by unseen Badass just because he/she has the ability to tank your shield and health with two direct hits is more than a little annoying. I am also seeing 'The annointed' as being a potential annoyance in the future as well.

    Other than that I am liking it and it seems a lot of other folk are too given that it's supposedly T2's best selling game so far, looks like Epic Games exclusive didn't hurt this game as much as everyone thought it would.

    Finally finished the story now doing side quests with mayhem on.

    Really, really enjoying the game. The halloween event is great too.

    Liked the general progression of the main plot and characters from previous games but the villains this time were irritating with their stupid streamer personality stuff. Nothing on handsome jack.

    Tyson de leon was a good part of it though, the logs were cool.

    Though vehicles actually being decent this time were good, you can actually use them as portable turrets when you want.

    That last patch really made a HUGE difference in loading time with DX12! Takes just a few seconds now for it to load. I have no problems whatsoever running this maxed out at 1080p(90 - 100+ fps dips a little bit here and there but very smooth).

    Got the game yesterday. As usual the 2080Ti couldn't run the game at max settings so I had to spend 30 minutes to adjust settings so that I wouldn't get low FPS. Luckily I found the DF video and used some of it's settings, plus DX12 (less stuttering) and for some reason borderlands windowed (I mean borderless windowed). Wanted to get as close to 95 fps as possible and it worked...to some extent, sometimes it dips like crazy 70-ish even though I've turned down the Draw Distance to High.

    The game though seems great so far :) Fun humor and it feels fresh somehow. I've heard bad things about the Calypsos but all in good time, I'm just level 3 so far.

    Finished it yesterday which took about 52hrs and included all side quests and a lot of running back/forth to vending machines.

    Pros : The game engine upgrade really makes the visuals stand out and I love the graphical "cartoonish" style. I think the story was pretty good and involved a huge character roster with some memorable faces. The humor was mostly pretty funny. Tons and tons of weapons with nice feel to most of them and good SFX. Nice variation of planets and settings. Very good length and decent "replayability". The four classes are quite varied in terms of skills and abilities.

    Cons : Antagonists! Not only are they completely ridiculous, the dialogue is stupid with whole social media thing *puke*. In some places there is a good amount of Vendor machines, in other places there is just one which is weird since the game is built on loot and selling loot. The 10% dollar penalty on death adds to unnecessary dollar grind for SDUs. Some quests were very short. Some characters are dull.

    I hereby give the game a weak 4 out of 5.
