I’m just a fraction into the game, just taking my time exploring every nook and cranny, testing guns, getting way overleved and not caring, level 12 and only just killed Mouthpiece, but…but…
I’ve been willfully ignoring spoiler tags and at this point know a large chunk of the story and most of the major twists / deaths / the ending.
I’m not concerned about that.
What annoys me is how blatantly they seem to have ignored, or at least put off for future iterations, many of the post-Borderlands-2-ending-events of the PreSequel.
I am HIGHLY annoyed that the mysterious Red Eridian does not show up, that we are not embroiled in a huge war, and that Bandits…I mean Children…of the Vault somehow took over the entire planet without Lilith and her Raiders doing a damn thing about it.
The Crazy Twin Leaders almost seem like a rip off of the Blue & Pink Armoured Psycho Twin Leaders from the big Far Cry 5 DLC that came out last February.
I think I had kind of resigned myself to the fact that Borderlands 3 would be the last of its line and that the Franchise would go out with a masterpiece of insane glory and loot (plus DLCs).
After all this wait!
We may have to wait, what, 3-5 years, to MAYBE see the Red Eridian and the upcoming war?
I’m also pretty annoyed that the main Vault Hunters from 2 (as well as Athena) don’t play as insanely central a role in the events of 3 as the Vault Hunters from Borderlands 1 played in the events of Borderlands 2.
I realize I’m probably in the minority here, but I’m getting pretty damn tired of Lilith!
Also, Vaughan is a funny dude, but Handsome Jack was chillingly sinister and funny.
I find it really hard to take Vaughan seriously, although he is funny.
I don’t want Borderlands to become another endless sequels game.
I am loving the mechanics and guns and environments and looting but I am really trying not to think about all the things I just listed, and I’ve BARELY EXPERIENCED ANY OF THEM MYSELF YET!
Gearbox, I won’t lie…I feel kinda betrayed here, “friendos”.
