Yeah, 6 years is too early for a remake. I kinda wish this wasn’t happening, but on the other hand I’m buying it because Borderlands 1 is in my top 5 all time favourites (with about 20 other games )
Any time after 2019 is ok to do a “remake” with big changes, by the it could be a seamless open world (if they could do that now, I’d be 100% ok with it) along with new weapon/part models (unique part models for each Manufactorer could be cool, IF they all looked awesome and stylistically Hyperion/S&S/Atlas/whatever from the FIRST GAME)
Also GBX or 2K Aus or whichever C-teir studio is handling this ,(before anyone gets sad, no I didn’t call 2k C-grade, and no C-grade isn’t an insult, they have to start somewhere), If you guys f*ck this up, I will send my first ever angry email. You’ll get loads of critism here whatever you do, but I am too emotionally invested in this game to let a bad remaster go un-angry-emailed, especially with the current state if ps3 bl1.
Here is a list of stuff I would be angry aboot!
Changing the weapon system: GBX stumbled upon near perfection with Bl1s weapons. That is procedurally generated done right, I don’t care if TECHNICALLY bl2 and TPS have more variety because they don’t, it’s the same gun with different rarity.
Writing changes, I know Bl1s (vannila) story was criticised almost universally by critics and Bl2s/TPS’s was praised, BUT that’s no excuse to change stuff, don’t become George Lucas, please.
don’t censor ANYTHING, don’t you dare. Keep all the swearing (sh*t isn’t that bad of a word) keep the gore (only changes I’ll be happy with are using the increased hardware to make it more gorey. By all means add a filter, but leave the yucky stuff an option (a third option called “Quientin Tarintino” that makes it Kill Bill blood spurts would be welcome)
This rambling incoherent post was brought to you on News Year Day, I’m not hung over, so I’m probably still drunk.
