Borderlands 3 relies very heavily on "Wave Defense" gameplay. It's uh... not fun for an FPS. It never really has been. Sep 15, 2019 at 3:46 PM

        The waves thing is even worse than Destiny though, 'cause of the "random" nature of the enemy spawns in the Borderlands series. There were a couple times where one of the waves spawned 6 "Badass" enemies and they killed me a few times before I could get passed them. Combat in the game is tougher this time out and elements are even more important than ever.

        at the very least, the one thing I do like about Borderlands is that it's a game that doesn't take itself too seriously. With so many gormless edgelord games out there, it's slightly refreshing.

        I've been finding Borderlands 3 to be distinctly without much humor. I mean, that's fine if they're focusing on story, but there've been just a lot of jokes that fall flat. The only reason I'm even still playing BL3 is the gunplay is actually quite good (though tedious at every boss encounter) and I'm curious about the Siren stuff.

      Borderlands 3: It's like playing Call of Duty Black Ops 3... except it's Borderlands. Very weird experience.

        I was going to get it, but then I remembered that not only did I not complete Borderlands 2, but I also really didn't enjoy my time with it. Bought some clothes instead.

        I'm enjoying Borderlands 3 gameplay more than I did 2. Though, I did greatly enjoy the story of Borderlands 2... I don't have much of a story to work with here in 3... or much humor going on.

        I like the line of advice because it preys on our inherent selfishness by asking us to be a little bit selfless. If you want others to do something, you should do it. If you did what you wanted others to do in order to make your own life easier... you'd make someone else's life easier. Plus, it can inspire others to similar action.

        I doubt a person in such a desperate and hopeless situation and mindset would care if more problems entered their lives. If anything more problems simply reinforce their belief that it's hopeless, and push them ever closer towards taking their own lives, and perhaps the lives of their families.

        You've never heard people say 'I've got nothing to lose' in an optimistic way? I have. It's like saying 'Sure, why not?' to someone, or any other variation of that.

        I've heard people attempt to mean it in a positive light. But I hold that trying to spin such a thing as "a good thing" reeks of delusion, as a belief. Right up there with "YOLO".

        Even it's use as "an optimistic thing to say" reeks extremely heavily of giving up.

        Anyway, I'm going to go into PM on this, since what I want to say will eat up a lot of space here.

        I went and grabbed a guide. Turns out, fish are the best things to cook with. Each ingredient adds a specific amount of time/points towards a buff. You can't get the level 2 or level 3 versions of things unless you add enough ingredients to get the "points" to do it.
        Sep 3, 2019

        For example, if you want a level 2 "Sneak" buff, you need to get 6 points of "Sneak" into the dish. The easiest way is with two "Silent Princess" flowers. You can also use 3 "Silent Shrooms" or 3 "Stealthfin Trout". Anything else only adds a single point. You'll never get to Level 2 "sneak" buff without one of those 3 ingredients.

        Likewise, the longest you can get without a "critical success" or "monster extract" is about a 10 minute buff. Though, you can also craft during a "Blood Moon" for a 100% chance on a "Critical Success".

        Man this guide means that 90% of all harvestables are worthless.

        I got it for "Collection of Mana", which, as far as I know, is the first and only release of "Seiken Densetsu 3" for the United States. I also wanted it for Metroid Prime 4... sometime in the future. Plus... Pokémon. But, I preordered the remake of "Link's Awakening" and the new Animal Crossing, which will be the first time I've played one of those games.

        Don't feel bad. If you ask me, i'll honestly answer that the problem was them. They wanted it. Soon or later they will find reasons to cause trouble to you or other ppl that they don't like. And thing'd still happen this way. I'm also glad that the guild owner is actually a good guy and thoughtful enough to decide it that way.

        I'm 40 missions in and we have no plan for defeating the fortress, but it sometimes makes an appearance to lay the hurt on any army we're using, as it "walks through the area" and deploys a ton of troops. The Godzilla thing went really well too...

      3. Tai_MT

        With Godzilla, it just shows up in the middle of a regular mission and the objective changes to, "Take it out!". You pour on damage until it's almost dead and it runs away, out of the map. I assume you can kill it, but I couldn't pour on enough damage. The dialogue says we retreated. But, about 20 missions later... We've got specialized tanks now to kill it, and a huge operation to do so.
        Jul 18, 2019
      4. Tai_MT
        Tai_MT
        So, we go through the motion of the mission and the new tanks actually do a crapload of damage to it, and we actually put it down. However, in the middle of the fight, the radio is alive with chatter about a new giant monster headed our way. We are like, "We'll just kill it too!". It doesn't work. It smashes through our new tanks and we're told to Retreat. Overall, just much better storytelling.

        That's been around forever. A dev made a rogue like game in the 80's and when interviewed he said that every time someone beat it, he would find out how they did, then nerf that strategy in the next update.

      If I'm meant to lose a fight, just cutscene it out. Don't make me fight it. It makes me angry when I'm winning and you force a loss on me.

        ...a cutscene that I *should* be able to prevent through the means of normal gameplay (like a villain walking up right in front of me and kidnapping a character, or outright overpowering my characters). To me, that can be worse than the tease. I know there must be some better way - but I don't know what that way is.

        The best way I've ever seen it tackled was the way it was done in Chrono Trigger. On your first playthrough, there seems to be a point where you MUST lose. You MUST lose Chrono. The thing is... You don't have to.

        You can beat the game. Right here. Right now. If you do, you get an ending and everything.

        I think this is the way it should be tackled. But, that's my personal preference.
