I’ll start with writing the known; I love Battleborn to pieces, since the first they it was announced till now. I didn’t pre-ordered, because I’m personally against that, but I’ll probably get my own piece sooner or later.
Though I really like the game, there are a few things that needs to be changed in order to give the game the amount of love he deserves. I’ll break the simple stuff;
The UI (=User Interface) looks really amateur rather than something you would expect to get from a triple A title – that’s one of the reasons a lot of people calling this game a F2P. The UI plays a really major part of the base interest in the game, he can make a huge difference psychologically and basically creating the wrong impression revolving the idea of the game.
I’m really worried about the loot system inside of BB, though I heard a rumor about an actual animation as a reward? If you guys remember, Thorn at first had a different ultimate ability; something that looked like a lizard-ish that were thrown at the enemy and by that could deal a massive damage?
You can see it right here at the Thorn concept art: https://fbcdn-sphotos-f-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xtf1/v/t1.0-9/12549054_1661272904127882_2656938969193917486_n.jpg?oh=aa659393397f8032f024721593fd0d3d&oe=57289D05&gda=1463586733_f36a4252fa9c24101ab6c67dd3aef871
And you can see it in action on the first gameplay footage from 2 years ago (at 10:46): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NvUSd70QM3c
And so, you guys think that the looting part of the game can be used as something like that? I mean, it’s cool to get a few extra shield or something, But I would love to get something a little more… attractive as an incentive to keep me customizing my characters.
Another thing on that regard; Are we gonna exploring customization as a really cosmetic change?
It’s cool to change the colors and all that, but what about an ACTUAL change?
Is the Campaign really gonna cut-off? I mean, it looks really cool and all that, but we’ve already know it will last only about 5~6 hours at best. It’s really long enough to keep me getting over and over to a game that took some of the best parts of Borderlands? As a non-competitive player, Im really worried. Sure, I’ll play meltdown and all that, but what if I’ll not dig it as much? In that case, It will worth 60$?
And so… there is one more thing; what is all about on the exclusive thingy? We all know that a successful competitive game SHOULD be fair and square to all the platforms. I don’t really care to pay extra money for a new character, but why should we pay, while the guys over at the PS4 are getting it for free? Because of Sony? man, I’ll be honest with you, it sucks
Thank you guys for reading all of my bitching regarding to Battleborn. I wish the game the best, because we all know he deserves it!
