I agree with Gulfwulf here. After two full games under his belt and the Jackpot DLC, Jack’s time is over. Mind you, he is the undisputed King Of The Villains in the Borderlands games, no buts about that.
The weirdly omniscient pair of streamers with a mighty cult that was obviously grown in a plot hole were a sad joke, which leads to missing Jack who really shines in comparison.
The twins of boredom are even harder to stomach if one (like me) expected a story connecting to TPS.
Remember how Athena does not get shot because the Watcher intervenes and warns of an imminent war? Fascinating storyhook right there.
And I got a pair of streamers instead…
Now then, after confessing what I wanted to play, the Jackpot was well done, but I neither want Borderlands to devolve into a Handsome Jack themed scavenger hunt, nor into a ‘find the Jack clone’ serial. We had Jackenstein already
