I like MK fine, but it's never really been my go-to. I've always been more into SNK and Capcom stuff. Also NetherRealm's recent games all kind of feel the same to me. Definitely fun from time to time though.

I started Maternity Leave this week so have been slowly working my way through the back catalogue of Games with Gold that my husband has downloaded -so far played Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion and Oxenfree.

Also going to play through The Witcher 3 again.

But I can look past that, as long as they please, please, please don't make us jump vehicles over chasms any more. Ugh.



Apparently, I haven't poked my head here in a bit and am catching up. This is blasphemy.

Indisputable fact, Borderlands vehicles have always handled like trash.

I played MASS EFFECT, so my take on what constitutes good handling is somewhat skewed. BORDERLANDS is fine.

I loved BL1 and BL2, but I thought the pre-sequel just suuuuuucked. Am I wrong? I am almost scared to head back into these beautiful cel-shaded waters.

I loved the pre-sequel. Disclaimer: I also like Burch's writing and it was the primary factor in my enjoyment over bl1.

I like the pre-sequel, but a lot if bl2 fans that liked the writing of bl2 thought the aussie humor was too dry (its great.)

Butt slamming and space lasers! I dont wanna go back to bl1 guns. I just went and did the new bl2 dlc, and I hate not having the o2 kits and super jumps.

I can't stand Borderlands, somehow. Willing to give it a try again, but I've at least had 3 different attempts playing it. The shooting is just ok, the world is annoying (quite, and enemy respawns, with sucky checkpoints), aaaaand stopping once in a while to check the guns is a huuuuge letdown. Not sure why, loved Diablo 3.

Now... Into The Breach. I said it was nifty little game, right? Oh how wrong I was... it was FRICKIN' awesome!!! I had super fun run last night, in which I managed to get all the objectives, but 1! The damn time capsule fall into a chasm! I couldn't get it because if I used a mech to get it, then it would fall to the chasm also. I was thinking to use some clever artillery fire to get the thing and then move my mech away, but it wasn't possible. Such a fun frustrating moment!

Felt like a genius for the whole playthrough. Did some REALLY, complex clever thing with the game.

If you like the idea of telegraphed enemy attack, deterministic gameplay, tight tactical puzzles, I can't give enough super late recommendation!

I think the Pre-Sequel is the weakest of the 3 games, but it has my favorite character to play, Lady Hammerlock. I greatly disliked the oxygen stuff. I didn't mind low gravity.

I love the series, and have pre-ordered the next game. I am hoping for the best.

I played all the games co op . I think pre seq was bae because :

1. Qol stiff like spawning multiple hovers, off of your buds.
2. Canned legendaries....bl1 guns made the 10 minute inventory dives a slog
3. Pacing and better maps plus mobility
4 -10 CLAPTRAP playing as a 4 person group you have to have one, the same way you needed a Krieg in BL2, but the Clap adds way more silliness than constantly reviving your suicidal arsonist teammate.

I have played all of them solo. I'm sure it's much more fun in co-op.

I loaded up Cultist Simulator. I have NO idea what the hell is going on. I have tried twice, and so far I do not find managing a series of timers any fun at all.

Which squad were you running? Steel Judoka? They probably have some of the best room for clever-feels.

Cultist Simulator is great. You can get like 20+ hours out of that thing just via discovery. I haven't returned to it for the new content but I was *obsessed* with the game for about 2 weeks. The rituals and magic are really cool but you have to figure *everything* out. If you run into a wall for long enough that it would stop you from playing more, definitely look it up, but otherwise just mess around. Thread from my high point:

I liked the bl1 guns a lot better than bl2. The bl1 gun generator would spit out some crazy weapons. I remember having an SMG that I picked up at level 17 or thereabouts that I carried for 30 levels.

Don't worry, no need to contact the missing persons hotline. I've simply started playing Stardew Valley on Switch.

I put maybe 250 hours into that on the PS4. Great game. I had a pretty baller wine farm at the end of all that.
