I’ve been playing Battleborn for a while and, needless to say, I like it. A lot.
However, one of the biggest things that I wish the game had was some kind of tutorial mode (as in, a simulated environment where I can take a character into and play around with, a-la “Street Fighter” (even though I’ve never touched “Street Fighter”)). A place where I can play around with different combos or see what way down through their helix I want to go. I’ve, personally, had far too moments where I would pick a character and the game would be unplayable because I just can’t “get into them” (ISIC, I’m looking at you!)
I’m pretty sure “tutorial mode” is the wrong phrase I’m using, but just a place I can seriously get into the characters without the nuisance of doing it in-game. I also understand why there might not be one, as Gearbox would want you to figure the characters out on-the-fly in-game. This is pretty understandable, but I’m loving the game so much that I want to dedicate to characters in my own private time so when I do finally go into a map (say, Coldsnap), and feel like I have a good feel of who I’m playing with.
However, this may mean players will get TOO good at characters, so there is definitely a huge disadvantage. Someone might have played, say, El Dragon so much that they know his best combinations and whatnot.
In addition, it would also give me the opportunity to get used to ALL the characters, including the new ones that are about to be added.
What do people think? Am I on my own? Also, if this is the wrong place (I’m pretty sure it isn’t), apologizes. Also, if this has been mentioned before, well, for those who want one – I’m on your side, buddy.
This is just something that I’ve had on my mind for ages and I thought I would finally get it off my chest.
