So I watched this Badassery by the numbers trailer on Gametrailers and left with a worried concern about using the numbers to give the illusion (yes we know Randy is a wonderful magician) of choice. This was also done in Borderlands and with each successive game in the franchise the numbers get bigger but in reality what you got was a far more confined set of number combinations that represented for the most part the drudgery of gaming. The boring guns, the boring shields. The really cool number combinations are locked away and are in general really, Really hard to get too. The use of brightly coloured similar size and shaped objects gives lootsplosions more appeal than actual value when playing.
I am trying to understand what Battleborn is supposed to be and have watched several trailers but still it is not making sense to someone like me who has never been MMO player or into TF2 etc. The Solo appeal to this game has been mentioned but is not being really sold in any way and I feel it is tacked on at best. Is this really a game only for multiplayer or should someone who likes solo games also be able to have enough fun with it?
