Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Only like, two percent of those are jokes, dude. And those that are jokes are usually out of the way and not part of the main dialogue.
I say this not as an insult, but I'm pretty sure you don't think 98% of them are jokes because you are too young to "get" them. You might not have been around for Darkman or Captain Planet or Major League, for example.
Dude, it explains the origin of the reference on there, being too young for it isn't an issue. It's just that calling something "Down the rabbit hole" isn't a joke, it's just a gorram reference that doesn't have to be funny.
Are you telling me you didn't burst into hysterics at the obvious joke that they named a Zero skin after DC's Blue Beetle? Preposterous! Clearly a joke!
I think Borderlands only feels "plinky" at the early levels of the game when you've got like 2 basic weapons and like 1 skill point. Which is admittedly a bit of a problem, though it's something a lot of action-RPGs suffer from. But it's not near the whole experience.
