The game asked me yesterday if I wanted to go back to the main title to install updates and I chose Yes because I wasn't that far in to Space Laser Tag.

Katakawa Ball can eat all the dicks in the world

Hopefully you beat it without going bankrupt paying for New U rezzes..  It kicked my ass once and I tapped out and went to go pub stomp lowlights in the IB tournament.  Nothing makes me rage more in Borderlands than losing money.

I'm definitely going to need a better Corrosive weapon to use against it than this shitty Green Hyperion shotty I've currently got, so I will sell the shit-ton of loot I have to recoup the losses from my rez and try again when I have a better Corrosive weapon.  

I've got a couple of really good Shock weapons, so I'm not worried about his blue bar.

Looks like it will be a return to the old Borderlands tradition of farming for better guns before taking on a big boss.

On the plus side, I did manage to clear all of the Skywell challenges and knock out the side mission in one run so I can just focus on putting down the gigantic armored deathsphere.

I also have a couple of guns in the mail that I can put towards the Corrosive weapon fund.  I am angry at Zer0 for sending me a shitty Blue as my reward for putting down Handsome Jackie.  He could've at least sent me a Purple.

For some reason, the game felt like rewarding me with tons of cosmetic items during the Space Laser Tag mission, so I unlocked the achievement for collecting heads and skins and vehicle color schemes and shit in the middle of my run.

The thing that pissed me off is Skywell only has the one fast travel point so I am going to have to fight my way all the back

That was the first time where I was underleveled and it was irritating because I was Level 18 so guys were Level 19. No biggie

Hit 19 as I am going through and suddenly the enemies are 21

Fucking enemy scaling

Yeah, the enemy scaling in this game is the worst.  

It is bad enough that the bosses in this game are so cheesy, especially this fucking deathsphere and the fucking salvo of tracking exploding fireballs he shoots at will and it's so maneuverable that it's able to dodge my purple CoV Radiation crud thrower.

Being two levels higher than me just makes it worse.  

I am beginning to suspect that I probably should've played this runthrough on Easy to avoid the absurd upscaled bosses.

Please say that vehicles wind up controlling better with upgrades. Got my first vehicle and, oof, these things don't control that well.

You will love the Cyclone.  It is a dream to drive.  Unfortunately like the B2 Racer, it is the proverbial lightly armored box of gravy on wheels.

The other vehicles handling not so much, but armor makes vehicle combat very forgiving.  The Bandit Technical is VERY sturdy.

@J.T. if we happen to be on at the same time - I might say we tag team Katagawa Ball

I will be up for that if I can get my Moze a proper Corrosive weapon so that you don't spend every fifth minute making a revive run.

If we succeed in destroying Murderball and it drops a Gold weapon, we'll have to flip for it.

Or you could use THIS guide to cheese Katagawa Ball.

As you enter the encounter area, there is a turbine stage right up the stairs that provides enough cover for you to avoid the worst of the orb's attacks.

Apparently, once you melt off all of the armor with a Corrosive weapon, it exposes an energy core that you can disrupt with Shock weapons so that explains the huge blue bar.

I think I will try one more time to destroy that fucking thing with my current load-out with the shitty Green Corrosive shotty and if I die again, I'll just sell off my loot, go back to Sanctuary, and farm at least one purple Corrosive weapon from Marcus's vending machines before going back in.

If we're on at the same time, we can both go in and try to work the cheese together.  If one of us drops, at least someone will get the triumph for reviving another character.   

Hopefully he doesn't drop us both at the same time.

The co-worker that usually gets on my nerves is currently getting on my nerves, so I'll probably use a couple of the 1100 hours of sick time I have and give myself a Migraine Day and start my weekend early. 

If nothing special's going on later, I'll try blow this popsicle stand at lunch time.  Failing that, I'll roll out around 2PM EDT.

Bah, I've got a meeting to attend so it's looking more like 2PM and mom is a bit under the weather, so I'll have to stop by the store and get some stuff so that I can make dinner for everybody.

I don't know why but I just thought to look for this thread. For the longest time I just thought this was a GTA posting board. I might figure out what I'm doin one of these days, unlikely, but possible. 

I'll try to read through here before it gets to 10k pages.

Minor annoying bug from last night:

Was doing the "Protect Quinn" part of the "Technical NOGout" mission. Killed a bunch of guys except for one robot named "AMBER-LAMPS," who just kept running away from me. Well, I managed to die and there wasn't anything left to kill to try to get a second wind, so I had to resurrect and come back.

Got back to where Quinn was. . .and there's no robots, no soldiers, no nothing for me to fight, yet I couldn't talk to Quinn and nothing else would happen. This fucking AMBER-LAMPS went somewhere and just disappeared into the ether or something, and because of that I couldn't continue on to the next wave.

When I quit to the main menu and came back the mission rebooted so that I could finish it properly, but yeah. . .was a minor irritation.

Are you all playing on Pro/X or regular PS4/One systems? I've heard a lot of complaints of performance issues on the PS4 Pro and One X, but I haven't run into anything with playing on my regular old PS4.

Although, to be fair, I'm only level 5 and y'all are way, way ahead of me. 

One thing I am noticing is that the world this early on feels really...empty. I swear there were more roving enemies in B1 and B2. In this, I ran for a really long distance without running into anything. I even discovered a couple areas where no enemies were present.

And then when I do find enemies, humans anyway, they just stand there and let me shoot them point blank.

Are you still on Pandora?

Because your first planet is definitely... less populated

There are definitely areas were that is not the case

Oh yeah, still Pandora. I'm only level 5 so I'm guessing I'm going to be on Pandora for awhile.
