Way I would some borderlands three again based on the time. I've played at Safar so my impressions not a review. Do you like borderlands and are you hungry for more borderlands. If yes you are going to love I love borderlands three. It'll probably be your game of the year. Are you borderland curious and haven't played any borderlands go by borderlands borderlands two it is dirt cheap looks great with all the you know buy it on the current console with like the HD pack. They've released for xbox one X or the P. C. There there is so much content attached to that game that is cheap. I think part of game pass at one point where it was free. Maybe maybe it is game passers xbox Games with Gold. Go play that and save yourself some money and if you love it then go get borderlands three it will also be cheaper. Cacao article on their impressions Russians because a quarterly like it's like the difference between being excited about AAA come into your small town in choosing to go in choosing to go to Poland a big city. If that's what you like go for it but has anyone told you about your options and then later in the article mostly borderlands three feels like a game that doesn't have a whole lot ought to prove it has piles of guns in a rude attitude in little people to shoot because hey isn't that funny question. Mark and I feel like again. If you love borderlands you'll love this game. I enjoy the moment to moment I liked the run and gun streaky gunplay of Borderlands and I'm always moving and guns and powers and explosions and hundreds of enemies and all this stuff happening. I think is is exciting. to me the the biggest net other than it isn't it doesn't feel new to me doesn't take pushing me in any a new way with so many games have in the last two years. I guess I've been spoiled by maybe the last three years of credible games but I find the humor which has always been hit and miss and borderlands to be to be more miss now than it ever has in. Maybe that's just because it's it feels the same if you'll stagnant ignorant but like claptrap was funny and now it's still claptrap like I get it. I don't no I don't I don't. I don't know if I needed Chris Hardwick and his underwear. I don't find that today. I didn't need that. I don't need a a large breasted woman telling me like where are you looking honey and then like wiggling bright. That's me that again my baggage. I I have a bag so big. It has to be checked. You know like I'm not not caring and and it's hard line to walk as a comedian myself. I know that I miss you know. I have jokes that miss.. I have jokes at a room will love and one person will I hate and it will ruin their evening. You know what I mean like. Comedies hard art is hard and I think the to flip that the praise as the glass half full version of that is Kudos to borderlands pun intended for sticking to their guns. This is borderlands borderlands and it had the large fan base and I think they're going to be very happy by it. I wish that it was doing something a little different different. I'm happy you you kind of stepped into that and broke that part of the conversation 'cause I was GonNa ask you what you felt about some of that because I had seen gene you know of course we're we're in the industry were paying attention to the way that folks are talking about his both on the consumer and on the reviewing and in media side of that and and I found it really interesting that most of the SCUTTLEBUTT that came out of the initial impressions and reviews talked about the humor kind of I feeling out of place in the way that we are thinking about society and thinking about the conversation that we want to be having in terms of low brow quote unquote quote lowbrow humor and things like that and it was interesting because I was dislike of two minds in a in a didn't know where to land especially in mind you my own baggage is coming from from conversations around the latest Chapelle a special and now this information coming out about these new folks on the SNL coming up so I was in a weird space when it came to what the game is going to be bringing to to the table in terms of its comedy in its narrative and it's one of those things where I see where a lot of folks are coming from when they're just like it doesn't hit. It feels like it's it's it's punching down or not even punchy down to just feels cheap in a Lotta ways and I'm in a space now where like I. I don't mind the jokes being cheap. I feel like you kind of need sometimes a space to have a cheap joke oak flooring at me and throwing poop at me and giving me money. It's funny like yes. Does it get repetitive but yes cheap silly dumb jokes. Are they work. There's a place to present a place for them totally. Ns and that's my thing was like it felt like at least in some of the reviews and stuff that was coming out super early. There was a little bit of nose in the air ness coming from from Santa those pieces which I totally get and I appreciate the fact that people are thinking about it in these ways but I also didn't go into borderlands any of the borderlands games with any expectation that it wouldn't be anything but that I feel like. That's the difference between the okay. I'm coming from with it and wears landed for some of the folks who are kind of been reviewing it and some of the more shared information. It's Kinda. Come out like I know it's not gonNA BE SMART. Brain outweigh even though borderlands to with with with Tina. I thought in their secondary deal see the stuff that came out afterward. There was like all the D- that came out for leagues that stuff was done really well. It was it was pretty smart in a way that they kinda played off of some some of some of the other characters in it but I'm not looking. I'm not going into borderlands three to to figure out if someone's going to have their magnum opus of like really interesting things things to say it's going to be our humor is going to be really stupid. Them not not really high brow stuff. I'm not going to be thinking real hard. After playing man game even be like that was a really profound thing that Ellie said while she told me not to look at her breasts in place so it was a little bit of a little bit taken back by the idea that that was going to be a place for those things to be in this game with these characters from the studio that already put out three games that were doing this stuff so yeah. I think that's a good point. My kind of thoughts back to it are one going into it knowing what is going to be. You're expecting acting something. Does that make it okay or is the fact that the default is bad a larger a problem of our society today like Oh. I know this is going to be. It's it is what it is like. Just the assumption that we're gonNA objectify blister Blah Blah Blah whatever and again I'm there are far more greatest examples in borderlands. I'm getting a hundred one-star I tunes reviews is longer talk but I think there's something and as a gender stripe man I realize I am the problem. I am the villain and every horror movie I I understand and I prefaced it by saying I am not pushing for you know What is it punch down humor in those ways. I'm just saying like the expectations yes of of people to be better when we see that their bread is buttered by doing lowbrow humor. I think that the expectations should be a little a little bit more reasonable. When it comes of course you want people to do better but also we live in? We're over honey. Boo Boo was really popular so I can't be really upset.
