    I'm going to guess it looks and plays almost exactly like Borderlands 2.

    You could've told me that was Borderlands 2 footage and I'd believe you.

    So it looks just like Borderlands from 2009.

    Do you really think they could change anything about BL2 gameplay and produce an improved product?

    Okay, it's over. Looks nice, but having to run in circles to talk to the NPCs in the hub could get old. You should be able to use the teleporter to zip zoom through them.

    edit: NOW it's over for real, they still asked Paul Sage some questions. There will be low grav planets/asteroids like in Pre-Sequel.

    Or better, have a fucking phone.
    I mean in BL1/2 you have people calling you non stop but when it comes to quests, nope you need to meet in face with them.

    To be fair, AssCreed Unity was in a completely fucked up state when it was released but it's been patched up nicely since then, so gamers playing it for the first time now are getting a much better experience than the people who bought and reviewed the game when it was new. The other main criticism against AC Unity, that it was just more of the same, is also unlikely to matter to people getting it for free now, since they're likely to be new to the Assassins Creed franchise.

    It would be harder changing anything for the worse, so yes.

    Game looks nothing like previous Borderlands games, form a gameplay perspective. Is it me, or do all the weapons have super accuracy? I have a feeling it's gonna be super easy. This one gets the pirate treatment.

    I have a soft spot for games I can play with friends, games with tons of shiny loot, and brain-dead shooters I can kick back and relax while playing. Borderlands 3's reveal looked reasonably entertaining to me. It's still super tempting to avoid entirely because of how frequently and loudly Randy Pitchford, a man who probably contributes next to nothing to the creation of Gearbox's games, is a colossal cuntasaurus.

    To be fair, "the user" is not wrong. The guy might not be lying in this particular case, but he's very known for it.

    Was it broken at launch on PC too? I've read a lot about how it was designed not fitting well with the launch hardware on consoles, them focusing on big crowds which even the new machines couldn't handle. Haven't read much about PC issues, like the last Batman game had. I'm not Mr. Assassin's Creed News, though.

    Yeah, it was pretty bad on PC, too. Different issues, but more of the usual terrible performance and stuttering problems. Unity wasn't as bad as Arkham Knight, which was exceptionally shit, but it definitely wasn't even close to being good.

    Somehow the dialogue is not even remotely funny, unlike in 1 and 2 where there were occasional pieces made me chuckle.

    Yep. Shooting and moving look almost exactly like Borderlands 2. Which is still miles better than Fallout New Vegas or The Outer Worlds.

    You'd think after a relatively decently long break and targeting new consoles it wouldn't just look like fucking Borderlands 2 on PC, yet it does.
