I'm happy that through Tales from the Borderlands and The Pre-Sequel, they've really dialed it back on the whole LOL SO RANDUM XD humor that came from the psychos spouting inane bullshit every two seconds.
>>315621428 Mordecai wasn't bad. And I actually liked Lilith before she went full bitch mode. Her being a chill ass hermit manipulating bandits through her Siren presence was neat. Her being awkward around Roland was cute too.
>>315621883 Mordecai was alright, Lilith was tolerable, Brick was... I'd prefer not to talk about Brick. The OG vault hunters got bastardized in BL2. Roland was my boy in BL1; wise-cracking bad motherfucker that sounded like a grown-up Steve Urkel, but in 2, he's just gruff military dude. Every other new character had a high pitched, grating voice. I actually just got done playing 2 for a bit because Mechromancer is fun and I turned the dialogue audio all the way down before I even got to Knuckledragger.
>>315622203 Roland being turned into bland, generic hero guy was a shame.
Jack wouldn't shut up and a lot of his humor was fucking terrible. Hammerlock was fine, I guess. Tina made me want to kill myself.
The biggest problem for 2 was just the humor was really, really bad. Lots of really lowbrow humor, lots of humor where the punchline is VIOLENCE!, and lots of humor that's just a reference to something.
Tales from the Borderlands showed how you can use the inherently goofy world of Borderlands to put characters in situations that are conducive to actual funny things happening. I hope future games take a page out of Telltale's book.
>>315623520 Playing through the pre-sequel right now. It is astounding how many characters are gay or bi, and I don't even feel like I'm far in the game.
>Athena >Janey >Janey's dead girlfriend >Moxxi >That quest girl who wants you to put up posters and burn other posters, along with her girlfriend she starts yammering about >That one girl you save from bandits at a distress signal, she gives Janey her number >Hammerlock >Hammerlock's ex-boyfriend you complete the quest through
>>315623775 Diversity for the sake of diversity is how you wind up with a shallow character.
Volgin from MGS3 slayed mad boipussy, but that wasn't all there was to his character. He was a violent, sadistic psychopath with such a lust for violence and destruction, but he also happened to like man-gina. Compare that to any character in BL, where they'd just bring up their sexual orientation out of nowhere even though it wasn't related to anything going on and didn't add anything to the task at hand.

I wish they would let them write Borderlands 3, but at this point everything would be better than the garbage writing of the second game. Fuck you Burch I would wish terrible things upon you but you did already a good job with that yourself you fucking spineless, talenteless moron.
No, The problem is that the jokes ARE from here. 4chan/ /v/ creates allot of shit they hate later on. Look at how many e-celebs they hate but they themselves are the ones responsible for creating. 4chan / /v/ is responsible for creating the meme culture. /v/ created rage comics too.
