World events and social phenomena you anticipate seeing lampooned in BL3

Look, it’s no secret that GBX rocks at this stuff. From Game of Thrones in TTAoDK to the brief dubstep phenomenon in TPS, these guys and gals have fun sprinkling our world of today into tomorrow’s games.

So, what do you expect to see come up in BL3 next year (fingers crossed!)?

I’m gonna throw out two big ones I’m 99% sure will make the cut:

  • covfefe

  • fidget spinners

Y’all’s turn!

  1. Could be named B4
  2. Open World!

I plan to pre-order the superest duperest physical collector’s edition of Borderlands 3.

If the villain makes a covfefe reference then murders someone by throwing them on to a giant fidget spinner I will burn all of it.

I foresee references to
Superhero movies
Stranger Things
Star Wars
Maybe the new Ghostbusters :man_shrugging:
Biggest things I can think of in mainstream pop culture in the last few years

Super awesome if they do have anything related to Ex Machina and Blade Runner 2

And here I thought I was the only Earthling who saw that film. Loved it, by the way.

Gearbox are pretty good at self depreciting , depricateng taking the pi** out of themselves , so I’d expect pokes at things like doctors orders , treasure room glitching etc.
I know a few of the guys are Destiny fans so
that , and a crafty dig at Overwatch maybe :wink:
