Borderland's 2 Lead Designer describes the new skill tree as "girlfriend mode". Most people disagree on this description but I think it is sadly a good description and a product of how girl gamers are treated today.
I believe the writer is the one stuck in "Girlfriend Mode"
You put us in the "friend zone"... I believe "girlfriend mode" is long overdue.
I think this whole thing is silly.
I don't think its a big deal I really don't, its just a name of a mode? "Girlfriend Mode" my thoughts: "Ok"
Actually a "Girl Friend Mode" could be really usefull, playing with noobs, not that it should be called girl friend mode, but seriously my girl friend is not that good at playing games and this would be 100% usefull when she wants to co-op with me.. I really should record my girl friend playing Nazi zombies some day she freaks out and shoots everything but the zombies, poor girl cant kill a zombie 2 feet infront of her it's hilarious LOL for the record shes good at other games, but not horror games. I make her play the horror games for the LAWLS, watching her play on the opening of dead space 2 was princeless, I'm surpised no one called the cops with all the screaming XD
Wow what's the big deal? In all likelyhood the person who plays this games girlfriend isn't going to be an expert at shooters and because statistically many more guys play videogames and shooters. It's not saying girls are incompetent at videogames because they're girls. This is not belittling to girl gamers who are good at playing and would apply to guys who don't play videogames as well. The dumbest thing here is marketing a DLC character you may have to pay for if you didn't pre-order to be the most attuned to casuals if you ask me. And also "having a class summon a character to attack for them is nothing like what we've done before?" So the soldier's turret is nothing like this?
ok i dont really care bout this girlfriend mode thing but that mechromancer class looks wicked as hell!
