How do you feel about the gay characters in Borderlands?
blueracey: As long as that is just a small detail and not made out to be their whole personality Actually that goes for everything movies, tv shows, video games. I do not care that the characters are gay, girl, male, straight, of color as long as they are good characters I will probably not even put any thought into it
You are the CEO of Gearbox. How do you piss off the most people with the Borderlands 3 release?
TheGeoFire: No co-op or single-player option. No story. Battle royal only. Clap Trap sings for the first minute of every round.
timetobeatthekids: Make a point to include minority and LGBT characters, but also include super racist caricatures and rape jokes.
Battle Royale is necessary to advance the story and every gun/skin must be paid for within a certain release window
Borderlands players of Reddit which classes are the best in Borderlands 2 and the pre sequel?
that–one–guy–you know: The guy with the turret. Idk the game that well but I always play that guy lol
I loved the Assassin class in BL2
Rico–the–snow–fox: Non-dlc is claptrap & zero DLC is the technomancer & jack (he’s a duplicate)
CocktailChemist: I don’t know about best, but Maya and Gaige will always be my favorites for BL2 and Aurelia and Claptrap for BL: TPS.
Upsilonu51: The Commando for Borderlands 2, and I wouldn’t know about the Pre-Sequel, ’cause I couldn’t really get into it and give much time to learning the different classes. I do love my turrets though.
What was your favorite location and why?
i_consume_lean: The Badass Crater of Badassitude, because it’s badass.
nojared12: The entire tiny Tina DLC. My favorite parts of the game are in there tbh. But of the main game? Probably caustic caverns
BetaTestedYourMom: The tiny Tina DLC followed by the badass crater of badassitude *torque air guitar in background *
GrumpyOleVet: Marcus’ Shrine.
What is your favorite quote from any of the games?
Laughing_Fish: Claptrap’s speech about his weaknesses was my favorite:
“Damn-it Jack! How did you know stairs were my only weakness?! Next to electrocution, and explosions, and gunfire, rust, corrosion, being kicked a lot, viruses, being called names, falling from great heights, drowning, adult-onset diabetes, being looked at funny, heart attacks, being exposed to oxygen, being turned down by women and pet allergens!”
Harbobd800: “Arggh this is so frustrating, see this is what I don’t get about you bad guys, you know the heroes gonna win but just don’t die easily. Example, city burning, people dying left to right yadda yadda yadda, and this jackhole rushes me with a spoon, a fricking SPOON. So I scoop out his tiny little eyeballs with it and his family’s all WAHHHHH haha haha I don’t know maybe you had to be there, The moral is that you’re a total BITCH!” <Handsome jack>
