I am happy. The Winter Update just finished downloading… and I just realized… Platinum can now be earned through in game quests. That means I can now grind to save up for the platinum skins I really want. Thank you Gearbox.
Also… I’m quite enjoying the Daily Quests. I loved the “contracts” in Team Fortress 2 before it became unplayable, and these are quite similar. Fun new things I can do every day to keep the game from getting boring. Neat little side quests. Once again, thank you Gearbox.
Also… did my first run through of Oscar Mike and the Battle School.
And… I’m loving the humor so far. For a third time… thank you Gearbox.
Here’s a sample, just in the scenery of something that made me laugh really hard…
Yes… the casual upside down walking Mike. Loving it.
Overall… I’m generally pleased with the update.
Being able to earn platinum eliminates a major criticism of the game (microtransactions).
The daily quests offer a new way to keep you engaged without doing the same old grind.
And new missions are always welcome.
Also Pangenesis Glyph was finally unlocked and my Miko is ROCKIN’ IT!!! WOOO!!! I’ve had that in my inventory for MONTHS!!! WOOOOOOOOO!!!
Loving the update.
