One more time
actualy BLUE is just a Badass cristalisk you can even hear one of the Maya's yell "thats a Badass" thus you can phaselock him. he just heavy so you cant do it for long.

No enemy intro, no boss.


Now I'll probably get raged at with messages of "What about the Bandit Torturer?"

It is a "boss" albeit a weak one and probably meant to introduce a new enemy and throw in some comedy.
You got ninja'd.

I think they will have more of those but more for first encounters like a bullymong and the torturer.

Mad Mel didn't have an intro... was he a mini boss?
(that's an actual question, not rhetoric.)

The Destroyer didn't have one either...

I guess side quest bosses =/= main quest bosses?

Nope, he was a boss, as far as I''m concerned. I mean he is the Ayatolah of Rockenrollah aftere all.

Even Master MacCloud didn't had an intro and he surely was a boss (maxi-boss? ) .

As for the intro, well that PAX gameplay is not from a finished game and maybe first Crystalisk enemy do had an intro (which we didn't see) . First Bullymong that we saw got an intro and he was not boss. So intro is not an indication wither something is boss or not.

I personally think that Gearbox only made intros for enemies that mattered. Sledge had an intro because you were constantly being informed that he was "the first real challenge". The destroyer didn't need an intro because 1. It still got a cutscene and 2. IMO, it didn't really have a name. It was some abomination dubbed the Destroyer because it was supposedly the destroyer of worlds. I suppose this doesn't explain Mad Mel though...

everything i read about maya from GBX says she can phase lock anything. it even says that later in the game she can turn any enemy into a teammate for a limited time. now i think that should work on bosses as well.

Most definitely not, that would be so incredibly unfair. "Oh shoot, it's Crawmerax 2.0! Don't worry, I'll just turn him onto my side and shoot him in the back!"
I would expect phaselock to work on everything, but the length depends on the level and weight of the enemy. Bigger enemies, less hang time. And same with level. And then if we get Craw 2.0, something that's multiple levels above you and waywayway bigger, it only works for a split second.
Or something. I don't know.
