I’ve seen a healthy amount of criticism of Borderlands 3 - from story to glitches - and there’s nowt wrong with that.
But I confess I am, overall… just a little delighted by it. Caved and got it on Epic, and I am so happy that I did.
So, in a bid for positivity, three things about Borderlands 3 that are better than an orgasm:
– Brilliant voice acting. Zane, Jakobs, Vaughn, Zane… I also really like Loreli - along with Hammerlock, it’s great to hear decent British accents (sorry Aurelia, but you don’t quite nail it as an upper class English gentlewoman). Oh and Zane!
– Even though I understand the criticism that playable characters are at times too passive through the story, I really appreciate their extra dialogue and its use to build character. That was a great addition in TPS too. And there’s some fabulous bandit dialogue, albeit no Hamlet soliloquies. Throwaway lines are one of my favourite features in the Gbx games I love.
– I actually use rocket launchers in this game. Ok, there’s a lot of small changes like this I could put here (and quite a few that annoy me too) but launchers feel more balanced and I don’t just rely on them for ffyl; plus there’s much more ammo - so the class of guns I neglected in 2 are giving me joy.
As I say, I understand people posting their frustrations with the game, but I’d love to hear other people’s pleasures too. (Or this thread will get buried along with my plea for better gun price displays which is THE MOST IMPORTANT FLAW GOING). Happy shooting friends.
Oh and a fourth thing… Moxxi is really hot in 3. Like, she takes my mind off Zane sometimes.
