    I've got 3 or 4 so far.  The one I'm suing right now isn't the best apparently, and it's underleveled, but it will reliably kill just about anything quickly.  Stuff that took 10 minutes to kill with my best guns dies in 2-3 shots.  

    I die a bunch, half the time from killing myself accidentally, but the guns are worth it.

    I just got mine a few days ago. I have the same problem. I feel like Schwarzenegger in Commando until I strafe my dumbass right in front of a pole or something and blow myself to smithereens.

    From the most recent DLC. . .

    The Empowered Scholar may be the single most ridiculous boss fight in the history of the Borderlands series.

    I hate that asshole. I died a billion times trying to jump those rocks.

    Credit to melraz for telling me: if you don't want to jump up there, you can just sit still and fight all the other shit and let his shields build and he'll eventually jump back down so you can shoot him.

    That fucking Molechar three-barred bastard that heals or protects him or whatever is worse that him in my opinion.

    Things that would make me possibly watch a BL movie.:

    1 - not live action

    2 - First scene has Scooter come back from the dead and strap Rhys and Vaughn to a rocket.  He then launches em into the nearest sun while hollering a triumphant catch a ride.  Neither of them is ever mentioned again.

    3 - Every subsequent scene includes at least one of Tina, Torgue, Tannis or Wainwright Jakobs

    I wish I knew how to do animation, because I'd start working on this immediately.

    Nah. I hate first-person shooters, and can't stand the way I'd wander around for 3 hours trying to find the exit of the mission in BL:2. Then I'd fall off the map and lose 200 million credits. When everyone said "Borderlands 3 is a lot like Borderlands 2," I decided to take a pass on it.

    You made the right call, Stout. Don't get me wrong, I love the game. That being said, the map is absolute HELL to navigate quite a bit of the time and I have spent way too long trying to figure out how to get to a mission marker, get too frustrated, and just turn the game off.

    I'd recommend skipping the game and just go get yourself a Pal's chili burger. Way more productive.

    Just beat the story mode. A little irritated with all the characters they left out from the previous games with no explanation (Salvador, Axton, Gaige, Krieg, Athena, Fiona, Janey Springs, Dr. Zed). Way too much Chris Hardwick talking for my liking. If it's possible for someone to have a punchable voice, Hardwick is that guy. 

    I couldn't agree more on Hardwick, but I must despise him so badly that my brain didn't even pick up on his voice.

    Holy shit - I just Googled who he was in the game. No WONDER I hated the shit out of Vaughn.

  6. Has anyone else done the Buff Film Buff side mission?

    I'm fairly sure it was glitched. It just kept respawning shit every time I'd take two steps. I had to fight two Super Raging Badass Daddy Goliaths, and - no shit - at least nine Anointed something or others. Hell, there was yet another one stalking around after I turned the mission in. I just ran away.

    It was beyond ridiculous. At least I got some decent loot out of it.

  7. I'm through with the main game and clearing out side missions now, and I have found the most annoying one of all time. "Transaction Packed," where you're playing a beta version of a game and protecting Lana.

    While I totally understand that they're parodying shitty game releases and microtransactions, I almost turned the Xbox off three times before I could finish it. Holy balls, was that woman annoying.

    I'll be hearing THEY'RE ATTACKING in my sleep tonight.

    Since I've been moaning about bosses, I've found a new one for the list.  Bosses that, as soon as you kill them, immediately pop up with full health, immunity to how you killed em the first time, and a hard to avoid new attack that insta-kills both you and all the available second wind targets.

    I don't think I've run into one yet, but I certainly enjoyed the "constantly leveling up until it got to god mode" thing Mel was fighting the other day.

    I tried playing Punch-Out on my NES Classic when I finally got it. I got all the way to Bald Bull the second time around (the one where the ONLY way you can beat him is by countering the Bull Charge), and I just don't have the timing down anymore. Tried it a few times, got tired of getting knocked on my ass, and haven't gone back to it since.

    That's about where I could make it to, if I remember right. All I can remember for sure is that when you started fighting guys for the second time, that was about the end of my run.

    That fat asshole with the bandage on his stomach was pure hell for me.


    On the subject of Borderlands, I hopped on for a little while earlier and Mel was on. Joining his game was a mistake. He said he's pretty sure it was glitched and I agree. It was the Hammerlock rescue mission.

    I have never seen so many enemies, and a ton of Anointed that were immune to even regular bullets for some reason.

    I bet we collectively lost a kid's college tuition in respawn money.

    It's funny, I don't mind the bullet sponge bosses in Borderlands.  At least not usually.  At least they follow the usual mechanics of the game.  You're still just shooting them, same as always.  You just have to do it a shitload more times.

    The kinds of things I hate are more like

    - bosses that are only vulnerable after you dodge their special attack.  I hated that shit in punchout back in the 80s, and I still hate it.

    - bosses that are completely invulnerable unless you hit their weak spot.

    - bosses that have a bunch of minions along for company, and are completely invulnerable unless you wipe out the little  bastards

    - the stuff y'all have mentioned - bosses where you don't save/heal/get any ammo back afterwards and where you have to redo the boss fight if the next thing kills you.  Especially if the next thing is another boss.  My personal example is Final Fantasy 10, the only FF game I've ever tried.  Forget what the thing was, but I kinda remember having to fight the same boss 3 times in a row without any save points.

    It's no coincidence that my favorite games either don't have real boss fights, or have bosses that are essentially tougher versions of regular enemies.

    And I have no need of the games that folks love because they're so damn hard.  Maybe it's because I essentially didn't play video games between the Atari/Intellivision period and the PS2/XBOX period.  NES/SNES seems to have been the heyday of those types of games, and I've played maybe 20 hours of games from that time period total.  Maybe it's just because I'm old.  But I feel no need to validate my existence by beating a really hard game.  

    I've got a job.  It's really fucking hard.  I'm one of a maybe a few hundred people in the world that know how to do it, and I struggle at it more often that I'd like to admit.  I've got a kid.  Raising him is a hundred times more difficult than that job.  Most of the time I have no idea if I'm doing that right, and it's infinitely more important.  If I can pull those two things off reasonably well, that's enough.  All I need from a game is a chance to have fun shooting things in the face while doing stupid stuff and laughing at it.  I got more out of beating a GTA mission with five of us standing on the roof of an airborne ambulance than I ever would from beating Dark Battle Ninja Toad Gaiden Souls.

    Why did you have to bring up Punchout, dalmit? I still have functioning NES and play that shit. I have never even SEEN Tyson (I'm not counting the emulator version I have on PC where I can cheat to skip levels) because I suck so much at it.

    I played far too many NES games growing up, and maybe that's why I hate tedium. The ONLY game I ever beat on NES was something called Guerrilla Warfare, and the only reason I did was because the game cartridge had the ability to save progress. As I'm talking through this, I'm kind of starting to realize I've never had the patience to finish hard games, and I've been playing since 5 years old on a hand-me-down Atari my cousin gave me.


    Edit: Since we're all video game nerds here, I'll include a pic of my old school gaming setup. Everything works except the N64. I have tried to troubleshoot it with no success.

    I honestly don't know if I've seen a boss that has as many ways to kill you/piss you off as that thing.

    I hate boss fights in general (for all games, not just Borderlands).  That one isn't the most annoying one, but it's close.

    Speaking of boss fights, I do not understand how people love any of the Ninja Gaiden games. I remember one for - I think it was PS2 - where I fought some boss a dozen times before I finally beat it, only to find out that two big T Rex looking things came out immediately afterward. I shut it off and never played it again.

    The older I get, the less tolerance I have for tedious bullshit in my video games. I do it to escape the tedium of life. If you're gonna throw horseshit at me, then I'm gonna Google cheat codes and shit.

    Yeah, I almost Elvised my flatscreen over that shit, but I hit enough Second Winds to keep going.

    I think the update ate the gold shotgun I got from the Troy boss fight.  Not happy.

    Ground my way through Tazendeer.  On to the next one.  Killed Zer0's last Target of Opportunity on the way there.  ACHIEVEMENT!

    How in the blue hell did you guys kill that thing by yourselves?

    I have pretty decent guns, but I have died three times to the tune of about 40k and all I can accomplish is getting the yellow bar down about 3/4.

    Is it just a "hang tight and keep shooting" thing, or am I missing a safe location where I can take cover? Seemed like that was an option with most boss fights in BL 2.

  13. I realize this is a stupid complaint when this is a looting game, but I always hated opening chests in 2. This time around, I'm flipping them open like a crackhead because I'm always running out of ammo and it is expensive as shit.

    Also, is it just me, or are the vehicles made out of paper mache in this one?

    Anyway, if it sounds like I'm doing nothing but bitching, I love the game. Having a sidekick with FL4K makes me way too brave because I figure he'll revive me most of the time.

    Edit: OH SHIT! Just got to the prison break. Robert, he ain't kidding.

  15. I finally jumped back on for a little while this weekend because melraz told me that poker was finally back.

    I had been gifted some potent bitters and one gold bar. Oooooooh, thanks Rockstar. Let me put that in the pile with the rest of my "haven't spent a dime yet" gold.



    Got an email that there were some Sadie missions online, so I figured I'd dust off the game and try it out. I'm sure she's coming soon, but it was a four man "capture two wagons and bring them back mission" with Sadie nowhere in sight. Unless I just chose the wrong story mission...even though it was the only one I saw on the map...thanks, Rockstar.

    I then did a gun rush or whatever the name was. 26 people on two teams. I think the score ended up being around 5-60, and I got 3 of those 5 so.....yeah, back to Borderlands unless anyone reaches out to want to play.
