Please give me one good reason why should I spend money on BL3 and support you

I’m sorry to hear that, hopefully they can address it in their first patch!

Both of those are 2K

how is this a controversy

Poor quality does not mean unfinished. and they are fixing it for free. this is not EA.


On the Plus side, it means that until its fixed, I can play totally my way.

ppl think they shouldnt be refered to as they and that theyre a boy

basically transphobia

I’ve play it short on my friend’s PS4 and the experience was awful. So this is my straight personal opinion.

@Tokesy97 Of course every game will have some kind of glitches, you can’t avoid it, but releasing game that have poor optimization its another different thing, thats why game is unfinished.

:D:D:D you just made my day with that.

All those things make game ufinished:

  • poor optimization
  • game crashing
  • fps drops
  • game progress not saving

Its like BL3 is still in early access. And you think its cool because they will fix those issues for free?
There shouldn’t be any of this in the first place. Its their responsibility to not allow any of this, because you are paying for it. Its triple A game and soon it will be year 2020 and we still need to suffer with things like that?

About flak controversy I meant that you can’t call him, him or her here on forums, because you will get banned. That’s another thing after epic exclusive when you deny some a choice.

Have some threads to read to undo that misinformation…(canned response)

And the forum rules:

And then, please, just try and deal with the fact that non-binary folks exist, that Gearbox promote inclusiveness, and that on this forum, it’s considered polite to use they/them.

If that’s really too much to ask, I can only suggest that you go somewhere else. No-one here cares what you call them in-game or in the safety of another discussion platform.

I’ll take any questions in pm.

Well, Fl4k is a They. it’s like calling a guy a girl, or a girl a guy. If you say it on accident, its okay, but if you insist, it becomes rude. if you are a guy, and you are called a girl, your manliness is being challenged.
Fl4k is non binary, so they don’t identify as a “he” or “she”. yeah, its kinda awkward, but people who are non-binary appreciate it.

you called fl4k a he on accident here. see, you’re not banned. as it was an accident.

this here does suck though. but, it was 2k’s decision to do that. and it also is only for 6 months, instead of forever.

Oh oh i know why! Because it’s better than that flawless game you made…oh wait

None of those matter if you were a real fan of the series… simple as that

A majority of the people that I know that got borderlands 3 are constantly lagging and having game-breaking issues but for me I experience absolutely no issues and I’m on a freaking original Xbox one lol

Hey I am one of those who is astounded by the amount of people who simply give every game company a pass for putting out a game so riddled with bugs. Yes some people aren’t having any issues, but some are. I am in no way saying we need to crucify Gearbox, but I do say they need SOME accountability. I have purchased a lot of games at launch with a fraction of the issues BL3 is having, yet people act like every game has tons of issues and that is absolutely false. All games have some type of issue but not usually this bad.

As far as the Fl4k gender issue, who really cares? OMG this reminds me of Odyssey when people were mad because they didn’t have enough choices to pick gay or straight romance options. Seriously? It’s a game, not real life. Enjoy it being a game and if it bothers you, make your own game and make it binary/straight/gay/bi or whatever, but have enough respect for the creators of this game that THEY designed how THEY wanted to design it. If you don’t like a book, read another. If you don’t like a game, play another. You didn’t make it so let the people who made the game put whatever ideas they want in the game, or play something else.

Now, having said all that, I would buy the game again at launch on Xbox even with the issues I personally have experienced and I would recommend it to anyone who likes the BL series, just remember it isn’t the same humor as the others so don’t play it expecting that. The game mechanics and combat are stellar once you get the controller dialed in though.

Starcraft2 was built on a new engine. It was more polished than Starcraft 1 and a software engineering masterpiece.

Starcraft 1 was a bug filled mess. It was a very ambitious game. I am super happy Blizzard released the game to bring in some cash before it bankrupted them. Upper management were using credit card cash back features to pay their staff.

Eh. It’s not really a controversy. Without exclusives, Epic simply could not survive. I don’t like it - but I understand. I just wish they had the same features as Steam.

Yeah, this was weak. But if you are going to boycott any game made by a company who has done something shady…well, you aren’t going to be buying mainstream games.

Eh. Hardly a controversy. To me it felt like a joke that some moderator took seriously.

I’ve only seen one bug and a few minor FPS issues. By the standards of most modern releases…this isn’t bad. Even DOOM had issues on release (remember Snapmap?)

Again - feel free to not play any game you don’t want to.

Don’t. Nobody cares if you personally don’t buy the game. Despite its issues, the game is still really good. It seems that you care more about irrelevant, unrelated controversies over whether or not you want to have a good time with a game. And in that case, just don’t waste your or, more importantly, our time with this nonsense. If you really gave a ■■■■ about the game, you wouldn’t need other people to convince you of anything.

And if you’re really gonna be this anal about what you spend your money on, why not just drop gaming altogether? “What people think of the gender of a robot character in the game is affecting my desire to buy this game.” Like, what are you? Twelve? There’s more to the game than any of this bs. In fact, the only complaint that had anything to do with the game itself was the fact that saves are getting deleted, but that’s most likely just an issue with the Epic launcher rather than an issue with the game. But that’s besides the point. The point is that you’re letting a bunch of nothing affect your decision. If it was actual stuff wrong with the game other than “it’s a little buggy here and there”, then I’d get that. But as of right now, it’s obvious that you don’t even want to buy the game and that you’re just trying to stir up some drama.


no idea how any of these are a ‘controversy’. define your terms.

Well…the Supmatto thing was pretty heinous.

(Insert Simpsons ‘hired goons’ clip).

I am the opposite actually… I am surprised by how much crap people are giving developers nowadays for not releasing a perfect product on launch. Because I remember back in the day people were more accepting of bugs and glitches, some of which were never fixed at all, and in the end became a meme because fans of the company loved their games so much. Feels like nowadays with social media and especially Youtubers, whose main objective is to attract viewers, are becoming a big influence on how people think and act towards game companies.


the term “goon” is a vague term intended to incite an emotional response. Define “goon” please.

It really depends on what you mean.

There was a period where a whole lot of games were released in a near-unplayable state (Sin, Blood 2, Mechwarrior 3) and you had to download a 20+ megabyte patch, which took hours on a crappy dial-up connection.

Far too many games these days are released in a similar state. It’s an unfortunate reality of the industry. I don’t like it…but there are very few games I buy immediately.

BL3 was one of these. And…it’s not a terrible release, compared to recent stinkers like No Man’s Sky and the last Fallout.

It was a joke :|.

I’m not sure if I can link clips here, but if you look up what actually happened to Supmatto, you will get the reference.
