Great news, Take your time with the game. Borderlands 2 will keep us busy for awhile

Reibooi1400d ago

Awesome. Would be great if they get it out within the first year or 2 of the next PS3 and Xbox so everyone can get their Borderlands fix early on in the new gen.

I'm loving Borderlands 2, but I'd rather see them make a new IP. Still, either way is fine. I'll be looking forward to Borderlands 3.

Carl_Shocker1400d ago (Edited 1400d ago )

Awesome...

Hopefully the classes will be

Brick - Hopefuly he can dual wield this time

Mordecai - Maybe a new melee move like Zero

Lilith - She has more powers, she can teleport, use Phase blast quicker and liquify people. Phaselocked...sucked for solo players in B2 it felt like it was made for co-op with all the support skills Maya has. The Phaseblast skill was really useful in the first game.

Then maybe a new Soldier class, Axton or let the Mechromancer be in the game from the start.

I hope the old vault hunters will be back...in B2 the Angel made them seem like they wern't important anymore despite them now having good character development which made them more badass, and lets face it another Siren coming to Pandora when only 6 of them were created would seem far fetched, it's bad enough we've already met three.

I hope Maya, Axton, Salvador and Zero will be NPCs this time round to learn more about them.

Or a more logical prediction would be 4 all new characters since they've done that twice so far.

Reibooi1400d ago (Edited 1400d ago )

To be honest I would rather 4 all new characters again with the characters from the last 2 as supporting storyline characters.

One of the things I liked about Borderlands 2 was how they took these characters who were basically just things that said a few funny quips and what not while playing them in the original game into genuine cool and interesting characters. They even went into the past of the new characters as well if you find the Echo's to learn about them.

But it would be cool to have them as supporting cast like the original characters were for BL2. It would help to grow the series so it wouldn't start to feel stale. At least from a storyline perspective.

Carl_Shocker1400d ago

Why would you guys want new characters...as I've said another Siren coming to Pandora would seem too far fetched since in the entire Borderlands universe only 6 were created, 3 have already been seen and they've all wound up on Pandora...I mean unless in Borderlands the Universe isn't that big of place I don;t see how another one would come or be close to the Planet or Pandora.

They've given the old vault hunters character development, time to switch them round now, let us play them again and give the new characters in this game some character development in the next game. Besides I'm pretty sure they can make the old vault hunters speak while were playing them

Was anyone confused that if you were playing Maya and you met Lilith there was no

"OMG...A SIREN...I FOUND ANOTHER SIREN" talk when the whole point Maya came to Pandora was to find out about Sirens and if there was more like her. Same with Lilith she came to Pandora to find another Siren and one is right in front of her...get what I mean

This is great news. I personally hated the first game. I thought it was the most overrated game this generation but I bought Borderlands 2 and I loved it. I thought it was an amazing game. I can't wait to play the third game in the series.

AboutLastNight51400d ago

Haha well that's great! I love the games, I'm so enthralled with the sequel right now

vickers5001400d ago (Edited 1400d ago )

Two each his own. I loved the first game, it's my favorite game this generation (well 2nd favorite now that I just finished Borderlands 2). Everybody has their dislike of popular franchises. I personally think the Uncharted series is extremely overrated.

Might I ask why you hated the first game? And why you like the second? The only reason I can see is that you either didn't give the first game a real chance and only played for like 10 or 15 levels, or you hated that there was little story to it. Because gameplay wise, both games are extremely similar, and the only HUGE differences between the two are the stories.

AboutLastNight51400d ago

Haha exactly! This is super exciting that the game is on the drafting table already, but they can take as much time as they want...I'll gladly play Borderlands 2 for as long as possible.

MattyG1400d ago (Edited 1400d ago )

Nope. Not at all. Just because work on a game starts right after its predecessor does NOT mean that its being annualized. And besides, annualization isn't bad when done right. Look at the early Ratchet and Clank games and the Jak series.

vallencer1400d ago

Annualization is what COD does and unless Gearbox releases it next year and the year after and so on and so on then guess what?? It isn't an annual game.

stevenhiggster1400d ago

I'm fine with more of Borderlands.

Off topic: Anyone else get really annoyed by that really annoying Orange advert that comes up when you come to the site, I'm assuming it only affects UK users. Really annoying though!!
