I bought this game day one to play with the wife and hated it. It was so buggy we could barely get anything done. We put it down for 6 months and tried it again. It was so much better. Far more stable and many of the issues we had were resolved. Not perfect but better for sure.

We finished the game on the xb1 and started the dlc on the xsx and OMG is it nicer! The load times are a fraction of the last gen and the graphic upgrade is beautiful. Now is honestly the best time to pick it up.

A night and day difference in terms of performance from current gen to next gen - when I first got it on my one x I hated it because you had to fast travel EVERYWHERE

Amazing game on the series x. Looks absolutely incredible and the gore, guns, and characters make it all the more better. Heads up for new players the dlc is way better than the main game

I’ve beaten two out of the four DLCs in the first season pass, and am currently working on Bounty of Blood, which is my favorite gameplay wise simply because of jump pads! Love this game, especially at 120fps.

Played it once during a free w.end. Is it worth getting now?. Easy to get into a coop game etc?

If you enjoyed it during that free weekend, then ya. The Super Deluxe Edition is on sale for $20 on Amazon right now.

No one's replied to the coop game thing, so I will. My personal experience in North American servers (which you can select) is that playing the story and expecting online coop is simply not something that will happen. I had one person joining my game over the time I got to 65, and I have joined countless games where the host is simply idling somewhere. I guess if you join some discord somewhere, it'll make grouping up easier, but it's just not my experience on xblive.

At 65 I have no issue finding things to do.

I'm holding off as it will be on Gamepass once the Zenimax? deal goes through.

I want to love this game but it still crashes every 5 minutes and even turns my Series X off. Gearbugs will probably never patch these crashes...

Borderlands 3 Super Duper Deluxe edition(has season pass) is $20 currently on Amazon

ID: gq3ib9r

Thanks you just saved me $70. I'll donate 20 to my local food bank as good MOJO for your actions today sir. (I don't believe in gilding since it does nothing)

Edit: I don't know why mojo is auto capped by Microsoft SwiftKey but I'm leaving it.

This comes with the season pass? Is it the series x version as well?

Do you happen to know if the super deluxe parts are a code or included in the disc?

ID: gq6oz63

Was: CDN$ 35.85

Price: CDN$ 32.42

You Save: CDN$ 3.43 (10%)

Unfortunately in Canada not so good of a deal. lol

Aside from the terrible story and genuinely cringe worthy villains, the Gameplay is top notch and well worth playing if you enjoyed the previous games.

they are meant to be cringy, as social media influencers often are. sort of a breath of fresh air in my opinion compared the stock evil power hungry guy or girl who has no personality outside of that. not as good as handsome jack, who is cringy himself sometimes, but way better than those twins from that shitty far cry game.

About to start this game finally, so I'll see how it goes.

The main antagonists are cringey and bad but almost everything else about this game is amazing. Best fps gameplay I’ve ever played and just super fun overall. I love borderlands humor so think there’s still a lot of good parts to the story/side quests that don’t directly involve the main antagonists.

The story is cringe-inducing. The gameplay's alright. It's an okay buy, but I wish I hadn't spent more than 20$.

13 : Anonymous2021/03/07 04:01 ID: gq2bo0v

Didn't care for the vanilla story too much but I can't recommend the dlcs enough. All of them picked up the slack from the main story and I would much rather replay them over the main campaign.

They still need to fix the damn glitch that erases vehicle loadouts continuously.

15 : Anonymous2021/03/06 18:01 ID: gpzo2u4

Not played but I wish they would add it to game pass... for me there's been a lack of decent fps titles recently added

16 : Anonymous2021/03/06 18:02 ID: gpzo8ft

Amazing! Better than 2 in almost every way

ID: gq1ojc7

Bold statement! Gameplay yes. story was kinda eh. If they remaster 2 with the new gameplay, mainly quicker movement and Mantling, that would be a great combo
