Previously on This Thread…
The discussion was started in the context of BL2, but afterwards established in context of The Entire Borderlands series, because screw BL2 because it is inappropriate to discuss such Crucial Element in context of only Bl2, and it would be not correct to consider BL1 and Bl2 (with all addons) as separate games since these are two sides of the same coin.
The thread also started generating BADASS ideas for BL3 due harmonious algorithm it abides…
Yesterday I wrote a post in the topic about finish of BL2 lead writer’s work.
And the thread was closed as if the speech was not about the plot of the game, but about purely technical thing, like an old bug that was fixed. Though i was talking about the thing that wasn’t fixed, and that maybe “a bug” was “a feature”. I just thought these stories are not disposable…
Well, if to perceive these games not as Art, but as just a product that should be chewed and pooped, then I was too late indeed.
Maybe I’m wrong and it is really stupid to think that Borderlands series is something more complex, interesting and authentic than just “Diablo with jokes and guns”…
Here is this post:
where at first i analyze both games a bit, comparing them with movies and frogs.
Then, I finally determine the archetype of a red herring, which was hyped as “a main threat”.
And after all I’m telling about the only thing that actually makes me PYST - The source of all EVIL in Borderlands!
Yeah, it’s all about Mordecai again!
Apparently I liked Burch’s impact on series, but the problem is I’m still not able to play BL2 again because of described technical flaw, though my friend wants me to do this after we’ll finish mopping-up BL1, although I warn him that I can just abandon it again on Tundra Express… even though I understand that without this disgusting flaw this story would be completely different, and, perhaps, I would be too much pleased with it so I wouldn’t create my art series in attempt to fix it…
I think I will feel much better if we discuss here; fantasize a little how the game Borderlands 2 (including DLCs, TPS and TfTBL) would be different if there were original True Mordecai.
Maybe everything stays same, but adds super delightful qualitative remarkable VO.
Or maybe there would be additional plot twists?
Mordecai got himself trapped and repeats the fate of the whirlybird pilot from The Walking Dead (because the actor needed to escape to another work)
…and then he calmly sews his head in place and returns from dunes of Singapore like it was nothing!
