Hell yeah, I think beautiful brutality is much better than rotten infantilism!
And I don’t want to see this in the game, if I don’t take part in its development, because I can’t trust to strangers such delicate things. So if the stars will not converge, I don’t mind if Gearbox would make something else so my continuation of story would stay independent (and the idea will continue in another setting). Or if they would take me as a good mercenary, I can paint everything in details…
But first I must complete my audacious unofficial plan.
In any case the wind whispers, that, whatever the circumstances, everything will be AWESOME!
Probably I’ll reveal in my graphic novel one of reasons why Bloodwing’s name is so Bloody and Winged.
I’m sure, Talon’s name has nothing to do with any of BL2 events, because, as you remember, Mordecai was drunk as a lord and missed all this obscene actions as decent lord.
If you’re not satisfied, I think you can call young boy BADASS Talon because he’s a badass and birds of prey usually have REALLY BADASS TALONS, and it’s most likely a reason why he got this name… ouch!
By the way I had assumed the appearance of Tiny Talon long before I saw the picture in BL2 credits to which everyone refers. In this case I can refer again to
Yup! “The egg” was my first thought when Mordecai called Bloodwing “a girl”.
Because corvids (with who Pandorian birds have a lot in common) usually don’t have conspicuous gender differences, so, besides genetic test, gender possible to learn only by comparing facial features of the adult birds, if you’re an expert.
But Bloodwing belongs to very rare kind, so Mordecai most likely wasn’t able to compare her with other ones.
When after the evil story we returned to play BL1 again we automatically have generated funny dialog on this theme between Roland and Mordecai when new friends freshly came out on first quests in Arid Badlands:
Mordecai joyfully shouted, “Ha ha! That’s my boy!” When Bloogwing sank her claws into a face of another bandit.
" Ow, are you sure, man? I think it looks more like a girl…" said Roland, watching how the bird strips the flesh of screaming pieces of human.
“Hey, don’t be ridiculous, Soldier! He’s a badass the same like me!” Said The Hunter with a proud grin, thumbing tip of own beard, “How such a badass could be a girl?!”
But when Mordecai’s feathered elder sister laid an egg, he realized the deepest meaning of badassitude.
It also explains why Mordecai chose in BL2 camper tactics instead of having fun in Truxican wrestler mode. He was protecting (and warming) the precious treasure.
And all this story happened to Bloodwing, besides personal life experience, reminds me of graphic novel “Tommysaurus Rex” by Doug TenNapel.
Recommend to read. It’s very touching (If you’re not unfeeling douchebag, of course)
And I wouldn’t even answer to the last thing @ErikH wrote, if it wouldn’t spread misleading information, tearing my words out of context.
This reply looks like he just hasn’t read the whole text.
Would you kindly, NO CUTS
(Or also seppuku is a good idea)
And I find difficult to understand people who can walk through BL2 more than once. I like to recall the good moments of this story, but it unplayable for me, because… I’d better collect more brains for old buddy T.K.!
“The concept of portraying evil and then destroying it - I know this is considered mainstream, but I think it is rotten. This idea that whenever something evil happens someone particular can be blamed and punished for it, in life and in politics is hopeless.” ― Hayao Miyazaki
BL2 gave a pretty good caricature example of how much this concept is rotten and worthless, and it really has made a correct accent on beauty and value of the original concept of true Borderlands…
At least for me.
I think I would also suggest to shut down the ECHOnet on Pandora.
Enough of these Wannabe Vaulthunters or Pirate Cosplayers… it’s so loud, so angry and so dead inside.
Now I understand more than ever what Helena Pierce was talking about. She was pretty wise lady.
And children need a good moral education.
