limited edition loot chest pre ordered

i spent over 200hrs into borderlands and that was without any sort of story or a vibrant world but this time around things are looking much better

will buy limited edition may not open it and keep it since it will be extreme rare and buy a regular edition for myself to play

"You’ll tear up cloth, shatter windows and splinter wood."
I love this kind of interactivity. Makes the world seem really alive.

"There’s even radiosity lighting, day-night cycle support (finally), next-gen pixel shading..."
Good to see improvements, lighting really helps make a game seem more real. I thought there was day-night cycles in Borderlands? It wasn't the greatest cycle, but it was still there. Wonder what they mean.

"The game actually has color this time around, really bright reds and deep blues."
Color works especially well with this game because of the cell-shading. I can't wait to see how the artistic design is with the final product.

Borderlands' Opening Scene Is Still An All-Time Great

TheGamer Writes "I don't think my most controversial video game take should be that controversial, but it is. I'm a video game journalist, so you know I have some bad takes in this broken down serotonin factory I call a brain, but here's one opinion that receives universal pushback: I don't like video game music."
