    You bet there is. Borderlands 2 community is still going strong.
    Turns out people like their rng loot and loud obnoxious noises.
    I still maintain that Borderlands 1 is better, and Bulletstorm is better than that.

    22 million copies sold in fact. The game is huge, way bigger than I thought.

    Marketing to fortnite fans is a stupid pr move. Fortnite players only play fortnite. And the moment they play the game and see the game last more then 10 minutes they will refund instantly.

    It's how Randy is still mostly okay with game journos. Like with Rockstar, once you sell 20 million you get an exemption.

    Considering that it's an Epic exclusive trying to target the Fortnite fans seems like a logical move

    I think the word you were looking for is "desperate".

    Borderlands 2 sold 22 million copies and you think 2K are desperate with Borderlands 3?

    Yeah, desperate isn't the right word. Gearbox did fuck up with their PC / SJW garbage, but the majority of their fans are sycophants who probably like that sort of thing, so it doesn't matter.
    The word you looking for is "greedy"

    So this won't have anything like Diablo 2's closed battle.net?
    I have little interest in grinding for loot in a singleplayer game nor playing an easily hackable game online tbh

    Maybe if Gearbox spent less time Virtue Signalling and more time working the end product won't be as mediocre.

    I found the gameplay loop in Borderlands fairly solid, but the whole series is ruined by dumb and annoying characters, retarded world building and just an overall shit art direction.

    The first game was not bad. But that was a decade ago,i can't believe that there is still fans of that shit,outside of old youtube gamers trying to be hip.

    It wasn't that bad in Borderlands 1, and I liked the whole gritty, filthy, dying world design, but Borderlands 2 and onwards really upped the stupidity, and completely fucked up the world by introducing lush jungles and making the world seem overall cleaner.

    That PC Gamer review is amusing, judging a Diablo style loot addict grind game mostly by its story and characters. Wut?

    It makes sense when you remember how much the gaming press and Gearbox / Borderlands fan base gushed over how good the story and characters in Borderlands 2 was (it isn't and they weren't) and how Handsome Jack was an amazing villain (he wasn't. He's the most interesting character in a cast of annoying, bland shits, but he's not that great, and is actually a complete dumbass).

    Even better than the ridiculous 'review', our friend James Davenport's bio is extraordinary. He's apparently PC Gamer's resident 'bad boy, staying up late to cover Fortnite'. Okay, James.

    The aggregate reviews are overwhelmingly positive, but the caveat here is that B3 is B2+, not a revolution in looter shooters. What you're getting is a lot of guns, diverse enemies and locations, plentiful customization and a tongue resting in cheek. I really enjoyed B2, so this appeals to me.
