So I just bought the Remaster of everybody’s baby, Borderlands. Took a day off from school so I could play it on launch with a friend of mine. So far the experience has been pleasant and we’ve been enjoying the nostalgia rush. However there are slight issues with the Remaster as a whole.
While playing, I kept noticing an abundance of screen tearing which really ruins the experience to a degree. It’s not game breaking or anything but it is something that I don’t recall ever dealing with in the Handsome Collection so I’m curious as to why it’s so prevalent here. The game looks great, all things considered but the screen tearing really just takes me out of the immersion and keeps me from enjoying myself entirely.
This is the one that I don’t want to immediately blame the game for. It could just be my internet or my friends internet that’s causing this problem. However, I felt it was worth mentioning just in case others have had a similar experience. It took my friend forever to join my game and once he was in he kept complaining about small issues of input lag and rubber banding. So we tried having him host it and sure enough, I also noticed that rubber banding was a small issue. It’s nothing major but again, it just takes away from what is otherwise a great appetizer for BL3 and disrupts gameplay.
I don’t want to whine and harp on the game. Especially when it comes to my second issue, it could just be our internet or something like that. I’d hate for my opinion of the game to lower because of latency that is not the games fault. However, I figured I’d come here and post this just in case any others are going through it and if there’s any way to fix it. On that note, how are you guys enjoying the remaster?
P.S. We are playing on PS4 if that has anything to do with it
