I picked up Borderlands 2 last week and tbh I just can't get into it.
It's a pretty fun game as far as the crazy amount if guns and stuff but the storyline doesn't really interest me for some reason.
I like playing with a buddy or 2 but idn just not my game I guess :P



I'm not a huge Borderlands fan either. Its fun for a bit and I do like the distinct character classes and powers, but I think the guns are way too complicated. I like variety and all, but there has to be a million combinations of powers, rate of fire, ammo capacity, etc. If you're spending five or ten minutes at the gun store doing math to figure out if something is better or worse that what you've got, it's too damn complicated. I heard its much better multiplayer, but not a fan single player.

I only played it amultiplayer or split screen. I thought it was pretty damn fun, but the level cap and my fiance complaining were the only reasons I stopped playing. She thought it was too difficult to figure out as far as knowing where to go etc.

As far as the weapon/armor math, that's pretty standard with a lot of RPG based games. It usually takes me a while to go through all of my weapons in that game, torchlight 2, and others where there are subtle trade offs between weapons.
If you want more simple I would recommend Elder Scrolls or Crimson Alliance

I like RPGS and whatnot, but it gets to be too much with guns. Diablo and other "loot" based games will have damage, a couple damage modifiers and maybe a durability or weapon speed. With Borderlands, it was all that plus, reload speed, magazine size, optics and other powers that don't work as straight damage, and with several guns. At least you're not using four kinds of swords in Diablo.

I absolutely loved the first borderlands. I've done 4 playthroughs with 2 characters for the original. I can't get into the zecond one however. The characters aren't as good. The story is bland and much too similar to the first. I wouldve preferred a new storyline not including the vault. Or maybe a totally different goal. I also wasn't a big fan of how they switched certain things around. Like paying for backpack upgrades and whatnot.

Finally getting around to playing GoW. Pretty solid, and fun.

I also just bought BioShock Infinite, and am looking forward to experiencing all the hype behind it.

Damn... if I would've known this thread was here I wouldn't have made a new topic for GTA V.

Anyways, let me know what you think. I've been playing GTA Online since yesterday and it's fucking superb. Addicting as hell.

I skipped on 2K14 this year because I hate 2K Sports now Lazy, greedy bastards.

I'm sure GTA V needs a thread of it's own, so it's all good.

Getting close to beating GTA V
Tried Online a bit and it seems pretty fun, we should set up a PG crew
I don't know if I'll ever get bored of that game
