Yeah I don't even know. Wonder what happened to that 1vs1 game they promised like 3 years ago.

Yeah, 'Bunkers and Badasses', the full (standalone) game. Starring Ashly Burch, Andy Samberg, Wanda Sykes, and Will Arnett as the main Bad guy (Dragon King?). If it is as good as Assault on Dragon Keep it will be an incredibly fun and stupid romp. I'm very excited now. The anticipation. Ooh. I always learn so much... from a live dissection. A dissection? No, no no no, that sounds too humane. (Wrong game but fits)

I'm definitely interested but I need to see more about the story & gameplay before I buy it. I'm highly skeptical of anything from Randy Pitchford these days, especially since I'm not going to buy BL3 any time soon.

Missing out on a good game because of the dude that produced it?

Just wait, 1 day before it releases on steam, it will change to a 1 year epic games store exclusive.
I'll take that bet. As dopey as Pitchford is I don't think 2K goes for another suicide pact with EGS (and EGS won't be offering BL3 money this time either). Not now with the benefit of hindsight and data on how BL3 did on EGS and then on Steam.

Looks fun, played the hell out of BL3 with a friend on coop. BL2 played about half as much. Fun Games...weapons are a blast to try out. Looking forward to it, probably gonna get it on console, as BL3 was a good console experience.

It's totally true. Kinda hilarious considering Tiny Tina Fun Party is no Borderlands, it's not going to have that kind of name-recognition impact in terms of sales.

for me Borderlands fatigue kicked in after Borderlands 2...Pitchford keeps milking this franchise instead of trying to develop any new ip's...Tiny Tina's will do fairly well in terms of sales but each new spinoff etc continues to devalue the franchise

You sure about that:

Borderlands 3 has sold 50% more copies than Borderlands 2 in the same five day launch window. Borderlands 3 sold 70% of its copies as digital, inching that metric ever higher for AAA games. Borderlands 3 was the most pre-ordered game in the short history of the Epic store, and 2K's most pre-ordered game ever

I'm mixed on this. Enjoyed BL1. Took me three tries to finish BL2, but ended up thinking it was okay. Hated TPS, but replayed it when Epic game it away with all the DLC and thought it was playable. BL3 I thought was decent. If there is nothing else out I want to play at the moment, I'll play a BL game.

But this? Not really sure what it even is. Hack and slash spin off? I'll give it a try eventually if it looks okay.

Just look at the DLC 'Bunkers and Badasses' and you should have a pretty good idea if you'll like it.
