Epic. How does this compare to Mass Effect 3?

Grap2196d ago (Edited 2196d ago )

what has Mass Effect 3 do with this? i can't relate it.

i can see this game sells max 8M good job Gearbox

bmw692196d ago

Mass Effect 3 is probably the biggest game of the year to date, I'd say Borderlands 2 is about to outdo it...

Christopher2196d ago

This is nothing like ME3 and ME3 is not the biggest release of the year either. That's Diablo 3. Heck, even MW3 is a bigger seller than ME3 this year. But, nothing like ME3. You're comparing a TPS RPG with a FPS Diablo-esque.

jmac532196d ago

Well the thing is, just by looking at bmw69 post he is not comparing the type of game that ME3 is compared to Borderlands 2. It looks like he wants the sales numbers and how they compare. A big budget compared to another big budget release.

Perjoss2196d ago

Diablo 3 might have been one of the most anticipated releases of the year but it turned out to be quite a disappointment unfortunately.

NukaCola2196d ago

Mass Effect is a TPS in a branched-out yet closed environment in space. It's pretty linear in structure.

Borderlands is an open world post apocalyptic FPSRPG based around co-op and looting similar to classic asymmetrical RPGs. Most similar to Rage in environment, but more about the looting and RPG side is focused on custom character over guns. You are always collecting and always getting the bigger and better weapons. Also Borderlands has a really unique artstyle and it's online is much better than most co-op game modes around. Just forget ME3 when you play this, it's a totally different game bro.

Buying 3 copies lol so part of 1.25 million.

Getting 2 loot chest editions and one delux edition

xXBlondieVanHarlowXx2196d ago

Woah 2 loot chests?? Any chance you can sell one to a girl down on her luck? :b

On Steam it's been on top of the Top Sellers since it was available to preorder.

Megaton2196d ago

Yeah, it was only briefly passed by CS:GO and a couple of the better sale items.

CommonSense2196d ago

i'm betting those pre-orders aren't even included in the numbers. it's probably closer to 2 mil. just about everyone i game with on pc (which is a lot) has that pre-loaded on steam.

NastyLeftHook02196d ago

fist game sucked in my opinion, i may try this one out, i like the artstyle. (oh wait i added my opinion) i better watch out!

@tenton
What didn't you like about it?

OT, I very happy with how everything is seeming to be going gearbox's way, with this one. In the modern climate of gaming, one little thing can completely derail a game and riddle it with bad public perception.

NastyLeftHook02196d ago

too much cartoon influence, the points that popped up when you killed an enemy ect, it just wasn't my type of game.

Pintheshadows2196d ago

Fair enough, it's your opinion. Could you not expand on it, however, past 'first game sucked'. Why did you think it 'sucked'?

If that's all the information you are willing to provide then the eventual backlash should come as no surprise.

schlanz2196d ago

Yeah that comes off a little hostile, why not just say what you eventually did, it's not your type of game. That comes across more respectful of others opinions than "that sucks".

antz11042196d ago

So cel shading and rpg aspect make it "suck"? Well, you know what they say about opinions and the other thing.....everyone's got one.

Paid off mine today. Bring on Friday !
