    I think that at this point I am just going to avoid Gearbox games until Pitchford resigns. Most of their games have been painfully average lately so it's going to be easy.

    Goddamn awful top of the page.

    Uhh... The pre-sequel has the best music of all their games.

    I don't remember any music at all. I only heard gun noises.

    Hey folks, this is not really a place to discuss the pros and cons of the EGS. It’s only tangentially related to Borderlands itself.

    Best music was always mad moxxi's arena in BL 1, which was good because when you wanted to finish those you had to listen to so much of it.

    I would like some money because these are artisanal nuggets of wisdom philistine.

    It's not like Valve didn't bully people with Steam back in the day. There is a reason there is a market for Epic to launch a new store beyond greed. I mean hell EA and Ubisoft did similar stores we can assume because they got tired of Valve taking an unfavorable cut.

    But I'm getting BL 3 on console so the war doesn't effect me at all.

    Developers and publishers are also getting sick of being review bombed on steam whenever they make any decision their users don't like no matter how innocuous. Steam has too much power in the PC gaming market and a lot of parties want to see real competition that of nothing else might lead steam to address their own shitty practices.

    It'd be nice if they had at least a feature parity with Steam, though. You can't really call it competition when they cut a huge check to get these developers on board, and their client is ass (do they still not have a cart or preloading?)

    Luckily I have all but abandoned PC gaming right now. The Switch and PS4 pro are more than enough to keep me occupied. Maybe their client will be better when I get back into PC gaming.

    Steam was utter garbage its first 2-3 years. I won't grant other clients that long to get it together but I think some latitude is fair.

    I intended to get it near release but I'm getting married soon after and I'll be super busy so the fiance and I might wait. I definitely won't preorder because I'm done getting burned by underwhelming season passes since Arkham Knight

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but those chests have some really good loot in them. You're saying that you don't get an advantage but you get 5 keys and a gun.

    They do not. They typically have purple rares that are completely random set to your level and at best are a little better.

    Also there will be free key codes on Twitter for 3 like minutes after release.

    Also the gun. And chest won't be available when you start. You get thise probably about 2 hours in from what I've read. If you do get the gun it'll be level 1 and worthless fairly fast

    And there's nothing wrong with that, it's a bonus for playing that hurts no one.

    Now if it was a DLC or something that be some crap, but a few free guns (that you will throw away in the same hour probably) is just that, a nice little bonus for some people. It's some peoples good luck, not punishing others.

    If I weren’t going to play this game, App Store exclusivity is pretty far behind this one.

    Frankly I’m probably still playing the game, either at launch or shortly thereafter, so I’m part of the problem anyway.

    I dropped it and someone else brought it back up. Just clarifying that everyone says "no advantage" and then in the same breath says there is one. So we'll have to agree to disagree and move on with our lives!

    The "rewards" in these games are bizarre and really not worth anything at all. Giving a bonus gun at lv1 when you start is akin to virtually every preorder bonus out there. The kind that will last you an hour at most before something better comes along. And then there are the shift keys.

    -The keys, while there are technically "hundreds" of them and you'll probably never ever possibly use them all up, are still fundamentally a limited resource.
    -The guns you get are always at your current level.
    -The core gameplay loop of Borderlands is that you'll be constantly replacing your guns as better ones drop as you level.
    -Ergo, the logical conclusion: "I might as well just save these keys until I'm at max level so I can get the best guns out of them.

    I think the main reason keys get stockpiled is you tend to only use them when you really need them and after you open up three shitty shields in a row you give up until the next time you really need a new gun.
