Borderlands 2: Will it be the same?
The first time I played Borderlands, I didn't like it. Now I love it. My file is(literally) ultimate. I have unlimited money, unlimited shield, and I have no limit to what I can afford so if there is an ammo station nereby, unlimited ammo. It's actually more fun than you think it would be. I never have to complain about dying, I never have to worry about not getting a good gun, and anything I do WILL get completed and I'll get back without a scratch. How did I acheive all this?
2 Rose Patriots. I sold one, and I'm using the other. Someone came into my game room and dropped 3. I forget about the other one and what I did with it. I have access to all of the DLC packs, and I have it all on the PS3. So why would I give all of that up just so I can play Borderlands 2?
Me getting those Rose Patriots was quite possibly a once-in-a-lifetime thing. If I'm going to get Borderlands 2 I at least think that our items from the original game should be able to transfer to our new file on the sequel. Not only that, but I am comfortable with the scene in Borderlands. I became attached to Fyrestone and it's environment. I was comfortable with the charactor selection. But what will Borderlands 2 offer me?
In most of the games I play, I become comfortable with a certain town. In Pokemon Ruby version, I became comfortable with Mauville City. In The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, I liked the town of Anvil. In The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, I liked Whiterun. We all do that sometimes right? But will there be a Mauville City? Will there be an Anvil town? Will there be a Whiterun? Will there be a Fyrestone? Will there be a town I become attached to?
Another important factor is the charactors. Will there be a charactor I become comfortable with? In Borderlands I liked Mordecai. In The Elder Scrolls I liked the Argonian species. But will there be a Mordecai or an Argonian. The first charactor I looked at was the fat guy. But still, will I be able to bond with Borderlands 2 like I did with the first?
Now I know I've used alot of metaphors and most of this Blog can't be taken literally. But sometimes the sequel sucks. Sometimes it's awesome. Either way, the only way I can find out is by playing Borderlands 2. This blog may be confusing, it may jump from subject to subject, but all-in-all, I am hesitant to buy and play Borderlands 2. Thank you, and goodbye.
