So pumped for this, holy shit. Looks fantastic. So much sharper and more vibrant than the last game, and the attention to detail is awesome.

For since the last year, people were clamoring Diablo 3 as savior to PC gaming. With a bad launch and confusing decisions, look what has come to Blizzard now.

On-topic, I didn't know Anthony Burch (Hey Ash, Whatcha Playing) is writing this game. Means there'll be an actual plot to the game!

What? It didn't need saving. PC market has been expanding for years. Also, Blizzard sold 6+ million copies and the game holds a pretty respectable metacritic score.

ALSO.. what has come to Blizzard now came to them years ago, potentially before merging with Activision, although that certainly sealed their fate.

LOL and who cares bout that ? Game was cleary made to put even more $$$ into BLizzs pockets. Thats why real money AH aint up yet. They just want people to realize how ridiculous inferno is then they'll pay to get stuff ( and a small fee flies to Blizz ) This game is pure buisness and got very little to offer as an actual game.

I have to ask what makes Borderlands such a beloved game/ franchise? I Never played the first because my PS3 yloded on me and I refuse to pay for Gold. Is it even still worth playing the first?

It was the de facto game every PC gamer was shouting in any forum for what would be GOTY 2012.

Humor, loot, claptrap, loot, gfx. Its worth every penny.

It may just be a shooter but it's nice to see something which actually has it's own art style and stands out from the crowd. I wish more devs would, or could do the same.
Commented on 2012-06-07 01:17:50
Visual style alone almost sells this for me.

Sure.. but the things hardly a flop, and it's not like there's nothing else to play. Some people (myself included) aren't so hot on the game, but I don't think Blizzard really has that much reason to care what I think.

I'd rather be playing Borderlands 2. Which should be one of the better PC games this year too.

You're not wrong. It is very much Auction House: The Game. I'm just sayin. Plenty of people like it and Blizzard is sitting pretty. It's not some disaster for anyone in my opinion.

It's more than a shooter. It's a shooter with Claptraps.

The fact You "have" to pay for every single piece of outifit, weapon, map etc Its not disaster for anyone ( refering to all crap DLCs) isnt a big disaster for people as well. And this is where we are today. AH is just another step into gamers hell.

Hm, why do they upscale 720p screenshots to 1080p? Looks quite blury.

There's no such thing as a respectable metacritic score...

The textures don't really look like an update from the first game. And that UE3 lighting is really starting to show its age.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it's a pretty bad sign if a new game can't generate interest on a free weekend. The fact that there are other new games is not a very compelling excuse imo. (25 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Black Ops is also the most popular Call of Duty sub-brand now. (26 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, even WD2 and Dishonered 2 sold much less than the previous games in their series. Same for CoD:IW, very few games that got released this Holiday season sold more than their predecessors. (37 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts electric devices, entertainment devices, etc. So who has that much money left that isn't reserved for Christmas perparation and gifts?! All around bad timing, hence why I believe Spring would be right (40 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Then you have the fact that by now people's wallets are hurting. And many people buyed new consoles, PS4 Base or Pro, and XB1 S. Plus Holiday season sells a lot of other things like clothes, PC parts, (41 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts I believe it has to do with the fact that there's too many games to play at the moment, and most of these new games ar very long. This is the week FF15 was just released, and WD2 on PC as well. (43 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Maybe, but I believe it would have become a kind of "cult-classic" niche game even if it failed to become a very huge success. Still, if a game like TF2 isn't succesful, it's a real shame. (44 minutes ago)
