Borderlands 2 has twice the budget and manpower of the original, hopefully fewer bugs

IncGamers: Brian Martel, chief creative officer at Gearbox, has told IncGamers that the development of Borderlands 2 required double the money and double the number of people to create it in comparison to the first game. (Borderlands 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I dont remember any bugs for Borderlands, my playthrough was rather smooth

TOTALLY the opposite to Skyrim

Borderlands had a bug where it gave you non existent quests that couldn't be completed.
They were like STD's if you joined someone who had the bug you got it too.

Just got borderlands for 5 bucks on steam

and that sounds like nothing compared to the glitches I had in Skyrim

The Winterhold college quests shut me out, and I could not progress past the first mission... and inorder for me to join... I had to kill 10 guards, one of the students... flee the town, pay my fine

And then I could join the college

And thats just the tip of the iceberg.... break dancing dragons,walking with a sword stuck in my chest, so on

Haha. I had the same problem. I couldn't get into Winterhold college. It was so stupid! One of the patches finally fixed it, but it sucked for the two months I couldn't do it.

I remember when hunting the fire skag and electro skag one of them spawned in the ground and could not be attacked which made me restart the quest and fight them both again.

Yeah I recently bought Borderlands to play with my friend....and the voice chat is broken. This many years after release. That alone makes me want to skip BL2. They cared so little about 1 so what makes me think they'd fix any problems with 2?

Fun game but meh. That was really disappointing.

What platform? I had it on PS3 and had no voice chat issues.
antz1104  +   1040d ago
Never had voice chat problems on xbox, and I've had it since release. Dont let that spoil you.

Can someone explain to me why Farkas won't stop following me? Even when I tell him to leave my service?
Lvl_up_gamer  +   1040d ago
The main issue with boarderlands was the weapon duping.

It was so easy to do and Gearbox didn't acknowledge it even after so many complaints.

It can still be done.

Yea I also didn't notice any big bugs... and I played it at lunch (while eating).
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   1040d ago
I don't remember any bugs, oddly enough... I play it religiously on my PC now. I used to play it on PS3 every day, when it released. I don't recall bugs on either system. I imagine the 360 version was just as smooth, as well.

O_o

Hope they fix the online for PS3 so friends can join each other.

And I freaking heard that the campaign was 58 hours long. 58 HOURS. Oh, we're gonna have confirm that.

BL1 was great. I platinumed it and it was fun. Will buy the second too if it's good. BL1 had this unique feeling to it so throwing more budget and manpower at BL2 might not do the trick for me. Hope they pull it through.

360 framerate didn't drop out as much and had faster loading times. I can say this since I got all 1750 achievement points and got the platinum tropy

i just dont like the cartoon graphics art style i did complete the first one but i dont think i will be getting this.

The only bug I've ever seen in Borderlands was completely necessary to solo Crawmerax. And it was not guaranteed to work. I've lost well over 50 million in cash trying to beat that bastard solo. Finally did it with low level bait + ledge glitch.

I remember that scavenger hunt bug where finding different weapon parts and that green box cursor wouldnt locate that weapon part just showing the area its in. And it was never patched.

Always thought Borderlands seemed interesting and finally got around to buying it last week to gauge if I might like to get BL2. Been enjoying the hell out of it and losing many hours of sleep without running across a single glitch yet. Looking forward to the sequel.
