VGarabia.com: Today, the infamous designer has praised Gearbox latest game through his official twitter account.
Yeah, until Diablo III, then what Cliffy?
Wow Cliffy is still alive?
LOL Diablo III Just LOL!! Diablo fanbase has mostly move on to greener pastures mate. We are in a new generation of games Diablo III will never have the success of its predecessor.
Diablo 3 will never have the success of its predecessor? Let me ask you something...are you on crack?
Don't be so sure.
Wow. Never thought someone would actually say that. I'm baffled. Were you being serious when you typed that???
Sorry, but no. Torchlight is the Diablo of this generation. (so far)
You must live in a cave if you think that.
Vhero it is too early for most uninformed comment of the day.... Lets break it down: Blizzard is WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY more popular than when D2 released. More fans buying D3. Everyone I know who loved D2 is foaming @ the mouth for D3. Greener pastures? Not one game has captivated me and took my time like Diablo 2.
LOL man. You probably couldn't tell a good game from a rat's ass. But on topic, I certainly hope Gears 3 won't be like Borderlands or Fallout 3 or have ANY kind of RPG like system. The Gears of War franchise is adrenaline and testosterone set to 100% and if Epic adds RPG elements then it will bog down the action A LOT. People play Gears to do this: kill somebody. 2 seconds later, kill somebody. 2 seconds later, blow someone up. 2 seconds later kill somebody. 2 seconds later blow 2 people up at the same time, etc etc. It's fast pace and action packed. RPG elements would change the franchise that everyone knows, and maybe not for the better.
Cliff must be smoking that North Carolina backwoods sh*t. Without co-op Borderlands is boring and drab. It's Left 4 Dead with loot.
Cliffy probably makes money every time a copy of Borderlands sells, so he is probably trying to make a lame connection to a game with a huge, almost cult following in order to rack up some Unreal Engine... Damn, forgot what it's called when you get a piece of the money every time something sells! Hate when that happens!!!
The word you are looking for is royalty fee. :)
I'm still sad that my necro will be gone. Oh well, i guess i'll settle with the shaman. I tried to be a barbarian and paladin on D2 but they get overwhelmed in hell mode especially in Act IV against Oblivion Knights. I hate Cliffyboy. Too arrogant and under delivers.
Borderlands seems underwhelming and half-baked to me. But then, so did Gears. I see a trend here...Cliff seems like one of those style over substance type guys.
Does anyone actually give a sh** what Cliff Bleszinski says?
no it aint, diablo 2 is still >>>>>>>&g t;> borderlands. and D3 is gona top its ass.
diablo 2 is one of my favorite games.......... and I love borderlands. borderlands is the diablo of FPS.
It's a little early to call Diablo 3 out
Or maybe Gears of War 3 will have some RPG elements? I hope so.
It's a lot of fun and addictive. Now, it will be interesting if Epic games considered making a shooter/RPG.
This game was fun up until the ending where I realized the story was one of the worst I have ever experienced. A lot like Gears Of War 2's maybe they should get coffee together sometime.
I must disagree with you regarding Gears 2 story, the story is good not great. It doesn't suck like the one in Borderlands.
"I must disagree with you regarding Gears 2 story, the story is good not great. " He's referring to the terrible ending in Gears of War 2. "WTF" was my exact response.
Borderlands gameplay doesn't rely on a deep story, and the somewhat shallow plot doesn't ruin the gameplay at all imo. It's all about levelling and looting. As soon as I finished it I went on to do all the side missions and right now I'm about to start over as another class and use different weapons. It's one of the best games this gen imo. And I've played most big titles so far.
Yeah, it was like they couldnt figure out how to end it and just threw it there. Could have been more epic like the end KZ2 in which you definitely know that there's still a fight to be had. Rico's an A-hole.
I don't understand why people complain about a bad story if there is good gameplay. I mean Uncharted 2's story sucked balls, but it is one of the greatest games of all time. Stop complaining about the story if the gameplay is good.
Borderlands story sucked because you were set up for something good and it was completely underwhelming, where as geow2 had a solid foundation and didn't take advantage of that. At the end of borderlands I couldn't figure out whether I was mad or sad. All I know was I felt violated.
I wanted a vault of epics instead i get a lousy T-shirt and exp and no killing of the B!tch the rest of the game is awesome especially with 4 people. Torchlight is actually more this gens diablo if there wasnt a diablo.
lol...funny song :)
Hehe, that was great.
Gears of war is the Contra of this generation. Well, that's what QueefyB wishes XD
Don't talk crap about the guy that gave us graphically the most impressive shooter to date. Uncharted 2 has nothing on Gears of War.
Love your name. Is it suppose to spawn images of something as wide spread as the rrod, cause it doesn't try harder because you suck at sucking.
is a great game but this guys is a douche who just wants attention.
You just pretty much described 90% of the people who inhabit the internet.
Even if its some pleb giving the praise. I think Borderlands is a great game, lots of room for improvements butits a good foundation to improve on for a sequel. Kinda like Assasins Creed was a good (but flawed) foundation which they have perfected for the sequel...apparently.
I'm very much enjoying Borderlands. In some ways it feels a lot like Hellgate : London to me, which itself was compared to an FPS Diablo. Weird how one 'next-gen Diablo' fails so spectacularly, and the other seems to have been well embraced by gamers.
borderlands is what hellgate should have been.
Exactly! That was the game i was thinking about when i was playing it in Gamestop. Hell Gate could have been great too bad though.
Diablo 3 is the Borderlands 2 of this genaration
Sorry but as much as I like Borderlands, it is not the Diablo of this generation. Diablo 3 will have that title.
i would still want to play Diablo III. i have fond memories of Diablo II. i wish they would bring it out for the consoles. i am not bothered about upgrading my machine which is like 8 years old.
I don't know how they would get the controls for Diablo right if it went to consoles though. It's one of those games where keyboard and mouse if pretty much necessary.
am sure we can "Pause" everytime we change weapons etc.. i don't mind.
4 people each able to pause the game at any point to check weapons, potions, spells? Oh hell no...However most consoles today support keyboard and mouse. At least the keyboard. Getting it onto consoles wouldnt really be that big of a deal I don't think
I'm Glad Cliffy B is still alive. I was getting worried.
...he is still alive!!! ;-D What does he(CliffyB-oys)know about making good games??? ;-D
And what would you know about judging good games?
looks like Cliffy never heard about Torchlight.
Cliffy B is the David Jaffe of this generation.
I'm hopelessly hooked on this game, and it was so underhyped.
I own both D1&2 and Borderlands, and no it's most definitely not the diablo of this gen. Diablo 3 won't even be the diablo of this gen unless they do some sort of major overhaul to the game. We're not going to get diablo 1 or 2 ever again. Especially not 1.
cliffy, the wanna be rockstar .. psst...Borderlands is a mess...guess he didnt play the game
It's also running on Unreal Engine, so I doubt he'll point out the technical flaws in a great game.
clearly so many are completely clueless of the mess Borderlands are and just are cliffy suck ups. the game is one if not the most bug ridden broken game I have ever purchased. UT had some of the issues in BL and it took Epic months to fix them and by than LOST a large part of the community. BL is 10 in worse shape than UT was and if you go to the official fora, you can see by the responses from GB, that they are "working" on the problems vs testing the game before it was released.
well I know 5 who never played the game...LOL
If it wasn't for the Multiplayer, it would be below average. Its also very glitchy and the graphical prowess is far below standards. (even cell shaded standards). Unreal Engine was a bad choice and If I were gearbox, I wouldn't use it again. Texture pop-in and what not. Its just unaccetable and its well known it runs pretty poorly on the ps3. All the textures appear BLACK to me in Borderlands. I have a 60gig Launch ps3. I think it may be my ps3, but every other game I have runs perfectly fine. Heck, I just installed MAG and textures and everything are fine. Same with Demon's Souls (minus some vertex popping which randomly happens)
No. It's a watered down version of Diablo's RPG system, it gets much.
so he doesnt played demon soul
Except that you can't even change armor!!!! For me, one of the things that makes diablo DIABLO is the fact that you're constantly making your character look more and more bad a$$! You simply can't do this is Borderlands. I kinda got bored with it after a while and stopped playing it when DA:O came out. I don't know...there just doesn't seem to be very much customization in Borderlands...or a story, lol! That is what diablo was all about!
Cliffy B the most stupid idiotic moron of this generation. Sacred 2 is more like Diablo but a diluted version.
In fact Borderlands has some direct things ripped right out of Diablo 2
No. I own both and Torchlight is far better than Borderlands.
Diablo?! not sure about that one. It's a great game and if you don't have it get it but I would say Demon's souls is much closer to Diablo but I guess he's not in a position to praise that game.
How long has it been since Diablo 2 again?...
