Agreed, can't wait for BL3, steam EPIC store or whatever store.
I'm fine with waiting.
The way 2K and GBX handle the BL games, there will be the base game, various seasons of DLC... and then the inevitable re-releases that include all the DLC and addons.
I'd rather wait, and if I'm going to get it... get a version that includes everything.
Besides, after the Pre-Sequel.... my interest in the series is all but dead.
I put up negative reviews of all 3 borderlands games after I saw his bitching lol. Better way to troll him would've been spamming him with that epic-cpy store sticker from metro exodus
I don't condone review bombing.. but if anything Randy is a moron for basically proving to the world that review bombing does kind of work by grabbing the attention of their intended target. In this case people wanted Randy and friends to know they were upset.. and it seems like he got the message. If anything it would have been much wiser for him to completely ignore the issue and let Steam deal with it like they have (been trying). Doesn't seem like he took it very professionally though, but that's RArrrraaaaaaaaaaandy for you. If anything his comments just made more people review bomb the games.
That's the effect it had on me This was the first time I did it. I see review bombings as a warning to me if I'm looking to purchase a game so I disabled that off topic thing in steam. Maybe they shouldn't try to screw us over instead but that's "victim blaming" according to that creep.
Randy's been well aware of the negative backlash for a while. It's why he was attempting to distance GBX from it, playing damage control by saying the decision was all up to 2K.
He knew full well that people would be upset, pissed... and he thought making a few posts on twitter would save GBX from it.
When, it just made him look worse in the eyes of most.
Yes, sometimes, publishers make such decisions without consulting the developer. But, considering Randy has been talking up Epic and their store for the past few months... I don't really believe that it was just 2K's decision.
Looks like Steam review bombing anti-measures are up. Look at the reviews and the * :
But, I thought Randy said it wasn't his call... it was 2K... bleh.
Would be a nice punch in the face of the haters if he did.
And while at it, implent a game breaking bug in pirated versions.
Me too. I've tried the EGS already with Metro Exodus and encountered no issues, and I'm willing to use it again for BL3. Also looking forward to TOW and RDR2 if it end up happening.
In general, it is the games I care about. If I really want to play a game then it doesn't really matter what launcher I have to use (as long as it's free and isn't too intrusive). I said this before with RDR2, but it's the same with any other exclusive game - if I only need to download another launcher to play then I'd do it in a heartbeat.
That's one of the reasons why I take the side of the publishers in all of this. Seeing so many PC gamers advocating piracy makes me sick, and I have absolutely no respect for anyone who pirates a game that they are able to pay for. Not only do such comments make PC gamers look cheap, petty and entitled, but they validate the existence of DRM and will probably lead to more restrictive and intrusive DRM in the future (ruining PC gaming for the rest of us law-abiding gamers).
The Borderlands Handsome Collection is free to play until April 7th.... Gearbox / Randy are sending like.. the weirdest mixed messages.
Doesn't seem to be active yet?
Figured it out, it's BL2 & The Pre-Sequel.
Strange, the BL3 twatter account says handsome collection but that still shows as having to pay for it.
Are the Steam anti review bombing measures a new thing. I mean you would have to be really stupid to be part of a review bombing campaign knowing fine well that the review wasn't going to have any effect. Not that I am saying that review bombing an; extremely good, extremely well liked 6 year old game who's overall media review is very positive, which has a well established and loyal fan base and if you were going to buy it you would have already bought it, wouldn't have worked. It worked really well against Metro Exodus.... oh wait a minute it didn't.
Tell you what, why not scream a bit about how you don't agree with the Epic store and close the argument by saying that you have; zero morals, zero commitment, and no back bone to a cause that you believe in by then claiming that you'll pirate the game instead. You know give the developers a reason to include ever more pain in the ass DRM, then again I suppose that will be another thing you can complain about as a reason why you won't 'buy' the game.
Like the invincible Scorpion in SS3:BFE
A bit of trivia about the art, graphic style of BL. Was inspired by a short 2006 film called Codehunters by Ben Hibon according to Pitchford.
I'll just leave this here because of reasons.
Really? What didn't you like about it (as someone I'm pretty sure enjoyed BL2, this game seems like it'd be an easy one). Not that there aren't things to dislike about it, but still.
It's on GMG with the grand discount of 0%. Thanks, competition.
Amazing how Randy Pritchford is single handily dismantling everything that Randy Pritchford has said lately about EGS and BL3.. the guy is such a slimy snake.. He is literally his own worst enemy. His foot is always in his mouth lol.
The internet has been flooded by all kinds of preview videos since yesterday and not a single post here.. The hype is real!
"Instanced Loot" - Praise be!! About damn time. Means I can finally play with my light fingered friends without raging that they nicked my loot I called dibs on!
