First of all I love borderlands my most fondest memories of online gaming came from playing borderlands 2 I met tons of new friends and had a blast
So why doesn’t borderlands 3 have the same effect?
Let’s not beat around the Bush here
By this time in borderlands 2 lifecycle in the base game we had 2 raid bosses terramorphous …which was fun from the get go and we had the super hard vermivorous just trying to get it to spawn was a fun challenge that kept me and my friends playing and grinding until the first DlC
Borderlands 3 features nothing of the sort
Dlc 1 captain scarlet we got introduced to a new vehicle…new currency (seraph crystals) new seraph weapons and 2 extremely hard raid bosses that took my friends and I a very long time to defeat … and collect Crystal’s once a day to afford that sweet seraph loot from the creepy vendor …we also got a sweet treasure room at the end of the dlc story …honestly there was so much replayability in this dlc I was hooked .some of the nest memories I’ve had playing games
Borderlands 3 dlc 1 featured nothing of the sort there is zero replayability here except for the scraptrap nest to farm cartel weapons…that’s it…that’s all we got
Borderlands 2 dlc 2
Introduced new currency (torgue tokens) farm those for god roll unkempt in the vending machines…and we got another raid boss enough content to keep you hooked
Borderlands 3 dlc 2
Yet again nothing new just a glorified story campaign with no replayability…I mean we got a raid boss but … it’s not really a raid boss it’s very boring and doesn’t offer any incentive to grind eista
My point is… borderlands 2 at this time we had 5 raid bosses …2 new currencies …1 new weapon type and a treasure room to glitch into
Borderlands 3 has none of this at 9 months into the game …borderlands 3’s lifecycle is about 75 % done with major content updates and dlc… go on YouTube and see how bad borderlands content creators are struggling to keep making content…joltzdude plays more BL2 then 3… I’m not trying to be a dinkus malinkus here but… I cant help but feel a little let down here … borderlands 2 was just so much fun and had so much replayability. I must have bought the game 3 times for ps3 and xbox 360 and again the handsome collection…that’s how much I loved that game …I’m just struggling to find that same care and love for Borderlands as I once did … like we are almost at dlc3 and I mean yeah it looks cool but I just really hope theres some game changing elements and raid bosses and just that same sweet stuff to make me fall back in love with the game i really do.
It saddens me to know that the games really almost done until gearbox shifts full attention to something else
So yeah rant over
Let me know if you feel the same
