Day 2 and a different game!
So day two of my Year Of Living Gamegerously journey and I have switched games already! It’s not that Mad Max is a bad game, I just fancied something with a bit of humour and shooty shooty bang bang!
So what game have I played today I hear you ask? It is Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. This is a remastered edition of the 360/PS3 release from October 2014 and comes complete with Borderlands 2 on one disc. It’s called Borderlands: The Handsome Collection and also includes all the downloadable content which is a great deal.
It has been a good 18 months since I last played this and I had no clue how far I had got in the game. When I fired it up I was level 16 and on Chapter 6. One of the reasons I stopped playing this game was that it actually ran really badly for a remaster, the menus were uber slow and clunky and the graphics were very glitchy. But credit to Gearbox Software as they patched the game and it now runs as well as you would expect. One thing that did come rushing back to me was the humour, this game has some real laugh out loud moments. Theres a video at the bottom of this post of where I shoot some enemies and they come out with some witty one liners. I have finished two more chapters and have reached level 20 today.
The game holds up well and is more Borderlands but with a few extra things thrown in, mainly oxygen levels and lower gravity as this is based on a moon. Theres also new characters and abilities. I am playing as the Enforcer character and as my special ability I have two drones called Wolf and Saint who attack enemies and also protect me respectively. Definitely going to play more of this over the next few days so will report back soon!
