First let me preface this by saying I know its a petty thing to complain about, especially in light of all the amazing stuff Bordlerands 3 has to offer. I’m incredibly hyped for the game and nothing is going to change that. However… Since the reveal of the artwork I have had a complaint lodged deep-down in my subconscious that’s been picking away at me and I just have to speak my mind.
I strongly dislike the new Psycho mask design
It doesn’t look bad, it just doesn’t look right. I can’t for the life of me figure out why they decided to change it so much, when the mask has been the iconic face of Borderlands from the start. Don’t fix what ain’t broke, right? I’m trying to tell myself that there’s some significant lore explanation and I should just wait for the game to come out to sooth my compulsion to complain but I can’t.
The mask just looks weird and after giving it extensive thought, I’ve figured out why. Its the damn lack of a “nose” and the sad looking googly eyes. Check out a quick edit where the mask has the old eyes and nose. Hell, even giving it a flat snout like Krieg’s mask would have been better.
I know people probably won’t agree with me but I had to get that out. Otherwise the game is looking fantastic though.
