Pretty much this.
Ever since I bought Destiny 2 I thought I’d have a great experience even though I never play Bungie games before to know if they’re awesome devs in my opinion. After a year and months I kinda got frustrated how they approach loot and item hoarding by nerfing it. Farmers like me get slap in the face just because hoarding stuffs before next season is bad? I gave up with Bungie.
Anthem… oh god no… thankfully I pre-order the standard edition. I seen youtubers praising that game would be “Destiny-killer” and how it so much better to move around in Iron Man like Javelins. Never heard of BioWare and well… they nerf loot and got so stingy with it. Also BW went MIA with updates for a long time after few months the game came out. I felt pretty angry after that.
Borderlands: The Handsome Collection came free on June 2019 and I heard a lot of people saying good stuffs about Borderlands so I got 2 and TPS for free. I already falling in love with those games. Even if TPS is lacking it still got me pretty hype with what it has. Especially with lesser rng involved with legendaries and grinder exist if I wanna dump 2-3 legendaries to get 1 brand new legendary.
Heard this game, BL3 on pre-order so I figure Gearbox did a fantastic job in making me happy with their games so I sink $100 in their pre-order, knowing I’ll get tons of enjoyment… well…
Here I am now. Pretty sad with this game. Too much rng, no fair dedicated loot in high Mayhem settings, annointeds not plentiful, Takedown is scaled by 4 people by forced and not an option to be solo if one can choose so in settings, Halloween event was murder with the Ghosts everywhere, there was an annointed event that lasted 2 days before Terror annointeds polluted what little Annointed event left.
sigh. I’m not going pre-order nothing anymore. Even if I believe a game dev does me no wrong. Maybe I’m just a broken down pone but I wish things were better with how devs handle gaming
