Yup, less than two weeks now, time to pre order the Xbox version... Hoping that can relive some of the great group co-op sessions that took place with BL & BL2.

Won't really know till tomorrow, will have to run and pick it up tomorrow afternoon, preordered from local Gamestop… No longer have a "ride-able" motorcycle, and couldn't ride it if I still did, so I have to wait until the wife gets home at 5:30 PM then run to gamestop. Could take her to work I guess...

I will being doing Xbox of course, don't know who else will be doing X'er, but I will be ready to Co-op and will probably create a few characters out the gate to get the feel for them, then as I join others, I will use the levels that are appropriate.


Looking forward to it....

So far so good I have a body when I look down which is amazing they never do that in FPS games lol. I will refrain from spoilers but it’s very funny. Character customisation is a lot better. You get to pick the colours you can also pick outfits still but you can customise them with the A’s said colours.

Weapon customisations Goes beyond skins i’m happy to say I. I don’t know how far it goes though yet.

Controls are familiar and thankfully for me they have disability options.

Local Gamestop, where I preordered, is opening at 2100 hours tonight so that people can get the game, it goes live in the US @ 2100 today.... I will be there to get mine and since I have very low ambulatory function, they have agreed to let me jump to the front of the line when I get there, so I should be up and running by midnight, depends on how many Gb it is, and I would bet over 50....maybe 60...????

With my shoulder all eff'ed up, I cannot do much, but I can still game and not have to move my arm, hip or leg, still have to breathe, but I have to do that no matter what. So glad I can game, I can rest my right arm on a pillow and then it doesn't have to move.... When it's not on a pillow, it's in a sling, and I have a cane, but you know what, NONE OF THAT IS GOING TO SLOW ME DOWN IN THE BORDERLANDS..... damn skippy it ain't...!

I really hope to see at least a few of you in the Borderlands, it is time the "Clan" had something to talk about again, and a great game that co-ops and that most of us are pretty familiar with, is the bomb for just that....

See you there.

How many times in BL 1&2, when trying to reference the map to find your way, did you get confused because it didn't reflect elevation. I am very happy to say that the map is now 3D fully rotational on all axis, SO MUCH BETTER.


I do have a bit of issue with the inventory set up, it is to compact in my book, only get to look at four items at a time....


So, far, it is fast and furious, you do get the perks a lot earlier; I got my first legendary at level 5, it was a 7 so it was usable pretty quick, also, no major process to get wheels, and the wheels are good, pretty much the same, but they handle better once you get hang of steering.


Like it so far....but it would be more fun co-op.

Later Warriors.

I can totally understand! I’ve gone through hell to keep gaming. I’m glad you found a way to continue. Been praying for you. We will have to get together for a game. I hope the others wil joking too.

I’ve played through the main campaign it’s very funny but there is some surprisingly serious and sad parts. I want to laugh with you about several things but I don’t know how far into the campaign you are. Two of the baddies I’ve been a fan of for years. I immediately recognised them. Gearbox even mocks us a few times. One will make your heart skip a beat. Hilarious. I took a few pics but I won’t post them just yet let you catch up a bit.

BORDERLANDS 3 PATCH AND HOTFIXES: OCTOBER 3, 2019 LINK
POSTED: OCT 3 2019
A complete list of changes implemented in the latest Borderlands 3 patch and hotfix.

Today we’ll release both a patch and a hotfix for Borderlands 3 on all platforms by or before 3:00 PM PDT, with the patch addressing a number of reported concerns and the hotfix focusing on player character balance changes and tuning of some enemies and bosses.

First up are the patch notes:

STABILITY
Addressed a reported issue where an infinite loop could occur when hitting the Guardian Rank experience ceiling
GENERAL FIXES AND IMPROVEMENTS
The Hollow Point Guardian Rank skill no longer damages yourself or allies
Hollow Point Guardian Rank skill has been re-enabled
Addressed a reported issue where some players were unable to unlock the Ultimate Vault Hunter achievement on Xbox
Addressed a reported issue where mouse functionality may have been lost when hot joining a friend’s session on PC
Addressed a reported issue where some players’ inventory would not be saved in their bank
This week’s Borderlands 3 hotfixes, which will be live on all platforms by or before 3:00 PM PDT today, contain some player character balance changes and address some player reported concerns regarding enemy behavior.

Our goal is to make sure all three Action Skills for each Vault Hunter are viable, but we have noticed some skills have been outperforming others. To encourage more build diversity, we made some adjustments to FL4K and Moze this week.

We also looked at a few boss fights and made balance changes to make their combats more enjoyable. Finally, we went over some enemy behaviors that could have affected mission progression and adjusted some attacks to happen with more frequency.

VAULT HUNTER ADJUSTMENTS
FL4K

Rakk Attack! is great for constant damage output, especially when paired with Anointed gear. The base skill still seems to be lacking, so Rakk Attack! now has a guaranteed status effect on any enemy that it damages. Leave No Trace was returning much more ammo than intended, and we have added a re-trigger delay to keep its ammo return within expectation. Barbaric Yawp has an increased bonus, as we didn’t feel that the amount of investment had an equal payoff. In addition, we felt that FL4K’s pets were demanding too much attention, which was interfering with players trying to stand still for any length of time, so we disabled the ability for them to move you around.

Rakk Attack! status effect chance as been increased to 100%.
Leave No Trace now has a re-trigger delay of 2 seconds
Barbaric Yawp stat bonus increased by 100%
Pets no longer push around player characters
“Touch Pet” prompt is now a lower priority and should no longer interfere with looting or vending machines
Moze

Infinite Grenades is not an intentional build for Moze—even if it is hilarious. To lower the power (and spam) of this build, a re-trigger delay has been added to the grenade portion of Means of Destruction.

Means of Destruction now has a re-trigger delay of 2 seconds
MISCELLANEOUS CHANGES
Adjusted the balance of Gigamind, Katagawa Ball, and Billy the Anointed
These three boss fights had concerns with their health and shields that made their combat loops more difficult than we intended. Gigamind had a little too much health, so that was reduced slightly. Katagawa Ball will no longer regenerate its shields; we found that while players contended with the adds during the fight, it would unfairly regenerate its shield, negating the players’ progress. Finally, Billy had 25% of his health removed; we agree that this fight often dragged on needlessly. We will be monitoring each of these bosses and may make further adjustments in the future.

Bloated Rakks no longer spawn so many Rakklesnakes
This change should make the Cistern of Slaughter in particular much more fun.

Adjusted the cooldown values when they are displayed for Zane’s skills
Amara’s Glamour will now turn enemies on each other, as described in the Action Skill
Modified the loot spawn for Sera of Supremacy
Spiderant Emperors occasionally wouldn’t drill back out of the ground, which created a potential progression blocker in the Proving Ground of Survival; we have adjusted this and the issue has been addressed
Resolved an issue that could have prevented enemies from spawning while in Devil’s Razor
Lavender Crawly’s physics were adjusted to prevent them exiting the world like a popped balloon
Further safe guarded Apollo from being launched out of world as well
The Rampager will no longer enter an idle at state at inappropriate times
Saurian Slingers attacks were addressed
Guardians now use all their attacks in Playthrough 2
Guardian Wraiths now reliably use all their ranged attacks
NPCs in the Slaughter maps were reported to sometimes attempt to automatically revive players in the arena. Going forward they will no longer attempt to revive players
Minimized the glow effect when opening Eridian ammo chests, can more easily see the ammo inside when opened

I'll be pretty late on playing this one though, I'll play on pc but on Steam.
I'm not really enthusiastic about Epic Games Store after all.

Why did they get rid of all the fun things that was included in the pre-sequel? It’s a huge drawback for the game. There is also not a bazillion guns in the game. Modding guns should have been added by now. I don’t think they’re looking at making the game different. Sure it has to be borderlands three should be trying to make the game with some differences or people will get bored like Biker Bear has.
