Hello, how many of you are planning on getting Borderlands 3 at launch or near release?

Feel free to state an opinion.

Obviously i'm not, it looks shite.

They sent goons to some mega fans house I'm not cool with that. Hard pass.

You treat your fans like some kind of criminal.

Day 1... ...on Steam.

The OCD part of my brain tells me I have to keep games of the same franchise in the same place, so I have no choice but to wait 6 months.

Was going to wait for the steam version... but I have lost interest all together. Shooting and looting is my jam too.

Never played any Borderlands. They just seem like a big loot grind. Games like The Division and Destiny are more appealing to me, but I stop playing them when I reach endgame and have experienced all the content. I don't care about the loot.

The general impressions seem interesting but I'm not quite certain of the meat & taters of the game.

Not day 1 but will buy it later or rent in a library or somewhere. Most likely the latter since I don't buy many games and I"m expecting to buy a lot of different other new games this fall and 2020.

Not day one but I wouldn’t mind getting it later on sometime as I really enjoyed the second game and this one looks pretty good. There’s just too many other games coming out in September that I want to get first.

Not me. It looks like Borderlands 2 with the '2' scratched out and a 3 put in its place.

I like the art style up to a point but they haven't upgraded the graphics engine at all it makes me wonder honestly what have they been doing all these years?

I suppose a few new characters and some new loot are the big selling point. There was never any hint of a story to speak of in these games. Not to mention the CEO is a prize fucking dick and will put all the company profits in his own pocket.

Yeah, easy 'pass' for me.

Give money to the company that doomed Alien: Isolation's sales, one year after the awfully, immorally handled Colonial Marines? Hell no. Can you believe they actually used part of the funds Sega gave them for Colonial Marines towards their own Borderlands game, while outsourcing parts of CM? An awful company. I hope they burn.

I don’t know. I am still mad I bought “The Borderlands Handsome Collection” which I thought was all the games but it only had 2 out the 3 released for $20.

Then 2 weeks later it was free on PS+.


Although I had tons of fun with these games, I have no desire to ever pay full price for them. I don’t even want to pay $20 for Borderlands 3 because it will end up free the next month. lol

I was so hype when it was announce and as the days goes by, Randy running his big fat mouth how and why they betrayed Steam, talks too much about his sex offender and overall, Borderlands 3 just looks like an expansion pack, hardly anything new. So yeah, I will not be buying it on launch and will wait for Steam version with GOTY Edition as well. Borderlands 2 is still fun to play.

Edit: And when I say GOTY, I'll wait 3 years for only $20 GOTY Edition on Steam!

With all the controversies surrounding Gearbox these days, I don't feel comfortable giving them money at all. I was willing to wait for the Steam release anyways, but now I may just avoid it entirely.

Even in co-op I failed to see much fun in the Borderlands games.

Don't have 1000s of guns in your game when they are all boring to shoot. I'd rather have 2 weapons if they are fun lol.

I'd take any single gun from Painkiller over every single one of the thousands of guns in Borderlands.

Randy Pitchford will be in jail by the time this game comes out.

He will literally be in a brothers arms.

yea i'm getting it on release. on the Epic store.

Borderlands is still the only series that makes the loot interesting, not just a million versions of what is effectively the same gun with slightly different stats. they actually randomise the guns themselves. and have some decent enemy variety.

I also enjoy the irreverent tone. BL2 was legitimately funny. the others... not so much. we'll see how 3 stacks up.

mainly getting to play with friends but I expect i'll enjoy it.

@uninspiredcup: I hardly ever buy any games on day 1, but it's very likely that I will buy Borderlands 3 within a year or so.

Nope. Looks like Borderlands 2 DLC, and I'm quite sick of Borderlands and its never-change attitude.

Until Gearbox finances their own Colonial Marines redemption do-over and gives Sega their cut, I'll pass on anything Gearbox does while that con artist Randy Pitchford is running the show.

I'd have to play it on my own. I played 1 and 2 on my own but it got pretty boring. And I was hoping to see them implement lots of things in 3 for solo players. Like AI companions that work really well and that you can 'program'/order around. But that doesn't seem to be happening.

Take2 can go **** themselves.

I don't know why publishers are having a competition to see who can do the most shitty thing.

Then you have the spastic that runs Gearbox...

I know about the controversy related to the epic game store. I dont PC game except for the exclusives lately.

I know about the youtuber investigation but if you see inside gaming's youtube video on it they clearly weren't the only ones doing something wrong.

I will be getting this day one on my Xbox One X. I have actually recently played through Borderlands 1 and The Presequel and am currently play Borderlands 2 in anticipation.

I am very hyped but honestly more hyped for more Destiny 2 DLC.

Nope, a few reasons. 1. The DLC will be bundled later. 2. The tactics 2K are using by going to people houses and strong arming them is just sad. Do not give them money for bad behavior and re-enforce their bad behavior. These companies need to be checked like they should be. We pay your salaries. Stop acting like the dang mafia...

I'm not going to grab it on EGS. Reasons:

  • I don't want to support Epic
  • I don't want to support Gearbox
  • I won't have any friends to play it with on EGS
  • If it's like the other BL games there will be a stupid amount of DLC and I'd rather just wait for a complete edition

I keep buying the Borderlands games thinking they're going to be as fun as people say they are, but I spend some time with them and I honestly think they are some of the dumbest games I have ever played.

They're funny, on occasion--and that humor is outweighed by general annoyance--but that's about the extent of it.

So no, I won't be buying it day 1. Or ever. Unless it's on sale within a year or two for 15 dollars.
