Exactly! BL series can offer a lots of amazing enemies! But Fake Jack is definitely not one of them. It's just a cowardly helpless creature not able to do anything by its own hands, and if to take away the qualities that it appropriated from Haines and Comstock it becomes just boring and faceless...
Nah, there is no sports interest for The Hunter.
Wellp, I thought the Pre-sequel was initially positioned as a big add-on for Borderlands2, fan content in the same format like Bioshock 2. And that it costs 1.5K rubles and available in individual packing is a part of trolling :}
I had runthrough only the main plot of TPS. Then in my canon Mordecai got bored listening this sick story and went on his own quest with The Mountain.
Actually i planned a few badass arts about pre-sequel stuff before release (some meat mash in New Haven), but after beating the game i canceled them. Because i was a bit (understatement) disappointed in playable characters (i mean two of them, which at first seemed more stylish). I expected from Wilhelm evil genius with psychedelic ambiance in Dominique Pinon style... but Wilhelm appeared simply imbecile.
And my decision to play as Nisha was totally fail... who knows, maybe it could be better if we were playing as Athena-Out and Сlaptrap...But in fact the worst way became an interesting experience. Don't recall that i ever been so disagreed with playable character... whole game i calmed myself with the fact that Zer0 will shot that stupid biatch IN A FACE in BL2 :Ъ
I am very glad that Fiona from Tales could provide me all the positive emotions that I expected but not received from Nisha The Jackassholekisser.
But I don't think that TPS was useless. It brings nihilistic line of BL2 to the point of absurdity and helps to get rid of all doubts.
Become clear that in the story of fake Jack were no drama, he was soulless from the beginning and behaves like annoying bunny from Looney Tunes, and even a storyline about its daughter was purposely mentioned only as Easter egg and something absolutely trifling.
In TPS have shown that the difference between Vault Hunters and Jackholes is simple and clear as between S.H.I.E.L.D. and HYDRA (Marvel Cinematic Universe). And I want so everyone have learned that degenerates, who believes that mercy and compassion are weakness, will never win.
But in fact in this game, except all crap and provocations, were a lot of really amazing positive moments.
The game have a lot of really interesting details to stare at and listen!! I want to draw your attention to animation, the work of sculptors, color schemes and lighting, artistic design(except comic pictures in the introduction cutscene, these are disgusting but explainable in story as fact that Athena simply have very poor imagination), and stunning soundtrack ambience and all sounds in general are very cool! For example sounds of moon lockers are very interesting indeed! Style of the whole game perfectly conveys the moon mood. The story also has some pleasant surprises.
Moment with The Eye was my favorite! Awww...So sweet nostalgia about our good old buddy Pit Worm and so wonderful occasion to forgive Moxxi! It was like Christmas for me! :'D
And ERIDIANS! Hell of a lot of ERIDIANS!! It was so lonely without this fantastically beautiful alien stuff! This was revealed exactly how I dreamed since the original Borderlands! AWWWW!!!
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!! HELL YEAH!!! It’s just amazing :3
And it was so awful to defile these sacred magnificent things, playing as soulless ignorant perverts. Teeth clenched i was pressing the buttons moving her disgusting dirty rough hands only to know how this mess will end.
But how Lilith just punched that annoying Bugs Bunny in a face was awesome! I've been waiting for this moment : D
And the final scene (when Athena finished narration and Lilith has decided to shut her up too) which generated so much cognitive dissonances in the community, wasn't care me at all... My mind was busy with Eridian stuff so i missed the action ^_^
I don't understand how people still discussing such boring things when the appearance of that magical hombre who said "naughty" in the beginning was so freaking incredibly cool!!
All's well that ends well.
Now we have full understanding of the difference between high science fiction satire and flat cynical comedy. We had to feel anger and disgust from BL2 to realize the value of things that we were taken for granted in the original game. With time pain passed and remained strength and wisdom.
Thanks GBX for the great experience!
It is a great joy that even in the dark era of BL2, hope remains, giving birth to characters like Tiny Tina, Shade, Mr. Torgue and his grandma Flexington. Because friendship is F* awesome!
But I think it would be right to sue Mr. Burch for cruelty to animals :Щ
Anyway his function finished.
And I agree that GBX site looks unpresentable with all these golden masks and TPS tinsel :0
And you know what? I will not discuss anything with you until you will play Telltale's Tales properly ;]
BECAUSE it is the best... well, actually it can't be better than the first game because the first game is the best till the end of times, so I'll tell you that Tales is the most important game of series at this moment.
It returns the series to healthy and harmonious way, completes BL2 story making it all sensible.
I am still a bit shocked by the opening of second episode, right after realizing in my own painted adventures with Rakk Hives... to hear this song this way...
Back to my vision of BL3.
No, i don't want to end BL's story. I mean, yes, i want to end the Borderlands story to bring the setting beyond the borders, opening multiverse and stirring layers of reality.
This can't happen soon. This should happen only after the whole BL3, its 4 or more DLCs, and maybe 2 big addons available in individual packing, and of course some seasons of Telltale's, and Neill Blomkamp's movie, and...
Hell, I'm start talking like I could make an inception... hehehe... Well, maybe I could if you believe in me. An idea is like a virus...
Just kidding, I'm just a little girl and nobody will listen to me.
Why everyone notices that my neo Mordecai is old like he is older than he should be?
Anyway inside it is still like a child. I do not know why his dreadlocks have become almost white in my hands ... it happened accidentally maybe I was unconsciously impressed by his change between BL1 and BL2 and instinctively made a logical extension. The new colors may symbolize his evolution from wicked to wise.
You should not worry about age of characters.
Art is a multidimensional universe inhabited by spirits and archetypes which have no horizons of past and future.
How about Wam Bam Island? It's a magical place...
And Opportunity you mentioned is placed on the water, and many other locations are surrounded by water, as well as most of all locations makes it clear that once it had been deep under water, and the tops of the highest mountains were islands.
Just look around. What about giant fish skeletons scattered everywhere? They are on the surface just at the whim of the artists, or is it possible to explain by sandstorms that bares them... or they died just cycle back after the recent reflux? And at the season of high tide their eggs will hatch under the sand and we get some new raid bosses!
We know that Pandora is not what it seems at first glance.
First colonists and archaeologists thought that the whole planet is extinct, they didn't expect to meet there alive and hungry things like skags and rakks that woke up after hibernation when temperature began to rise. Almost all known stories of BL beta turns around it. The time in which takes place BL1 story may be called the early thaw, and BL2 turns as a season of spring when all crap turns out on the surface, but soon it will overgrown with grass and the summer season will begin, so we be able to see all magnificence of this magical planet.
If you walk through the first game more carefully and listen Patricia Tannis' research works you could learn a lot about the cycles.
We have already seen this planet from space a few times. Pay attention to difference between its condition in BL1 and TPS. At the first time it was almost completely dry, and after very little time its color changes and real seas appears. Who knows maybe Border Pandora can sometimes looks green like James Cameron's Pandora.
Of course it must not be entirely green! It must remain enough salt flats for death racing and high snowy mountains to stare at dawns. But giant swamps and jungles is also very cool!
It is important to understand that Borderlands is not a post-apocalyptic setting like Mad Max, Fallout or Nausicaa. It is social science fiction in space futuristic setting where apocalypse just not yet happened thanks to great ancient alien ones who sacrificed themselves to protect something important, but maybe has to happen... if humanity does not become wise enough to defeat its own ignorance. It is our chance to prove that humanity is able to learn from the mistakes of the past.
Won't be surprised, if in BL3 we'll meet ~ten years old Truxican as the consequence of our Underdome adventures ^_^
What war? This General Butthole offended a little girl and Roland kicked his ass for this! And then Tina thrust some of her ladies right in his General butt, and then BOOM! And all the crap were scattered around! That's why she mentioned this like a "buttcrap". The end.
I'm afraid people with dirty minds can imagine the story that I just told wrong way i don't want to know, so I'd better make an explanation:
As General Rancid's butt in this story was a tailpipe of the mech suit, so everything was cool and badass! And bloody special effects were nice and cozy like in Tarantino's movies!
I advise you to ALWAYS guide your imagination aside aesthetics and do not perceive the words too literally. It will make your inner world AWESOME!
Thank you for your attention!
