    So, with 2K Australia doing Pre-Sequel, can Gearbox step up to the plate and bring a better Borderlands than Borderlands 2 with this planned version? What do you think of this announcement?

    Who are they gonna steal money from this time to produce it? To create borderlands 2 they embezzled Sega's Alien money.

    Funny enough I was going to come here and say basically the same thing Pitchford said.
    Iconic, successful, popular series? Of course it's getting a sequel.

    So, erm...isn't that pre-sequel borderlands 3? :unsure:

    I'll most likely skip this. Borderlands was certainly fun, but 2 was pretty much exactly the same (which is not really a surprise: the first already had roughly infinite guns, which sort of lowered the joy of "more guns" in 2). I hadn't heard much different from the pre-sequel, so I thought it was just a standalone. Am I wrong in this? I honestly don't know...

    Okay but the big question is, how many memes are they going to include this time around?

    We all "knew" it was comming. I can't wait.
    I am still playing borderlands 2, and i got fucking raped while trying OP4.
    I wonder how the story is going to be thought. And i wonder what kind of new items will be in the game. I am also wondering how the game will look. Try to compare borderlands to borderlands 2, and you will see what i mean.

    Dude...are you serious? 1 and 2 are pretty much carbonbox copies. And even then, it doesn't take a genius to fill in the blanks:

    -the story: a tiny excuse to get into the shooting arena. There may be some interesting characters and a shitload of references, but nothing innovative.
    (note: this isn't a bad thing. Playing a shooter like this for the story is like watching porn for the background furniture)
    -new items: a gazillion variations on the same basic gun principles.
    -the game will remain in the cell shaded/cartoony look, because it's pretty much their signature at this point.

    Don't get me wrong: I don't want to look down on the game in any way. In fact, I'm sure it'll be more fun than quite a bit of other franchises. But this sort of "I wonder" kind of statements on borderlands honestly makes me wonder if you've played the same games I have. :unsure:
    (note: I finished the first one and probably got around 50 to 75% to borderlands 2).

    I'm a bit into the first one, and I hope to finish the first one this summer and get into the second one. If I can finish both, that'd be really nice, but I don't know if time will permit.

    If you look at Borderlands 2, and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, they look exactly the same. borderlands looks a bit different from borderlands 2, but the artstyle is different. take a look at the guns for example. even the gun manufacturers is different. Atlas and S&S munitions is an example of manufacturers that is not in borderlands 2. BL2 and BL:TPS has the same manufacturers, and they look the same. the bandit guns in bl2 is the scav guns in tps. it is only a rename.

    I have played bl2, a LOT. i have also played The pre-sequel, but i have not yet played the original borderlands.

    "Congratulations! Your ability to walk short distances without dying will be Handsome Jack's downfall!"

    I must admit, BL2 was the first I played, and it forced a chuckle out of me in some of the worst times of my life. Claptrap especially had me cracking up. I look forward to this release.
