Tales From the Borderlands' sales "weren't great"

rockavitch

Played BL1 and got about half way through before thinking "nope" and leaving it. Just didn't click, didn't like the look, the humour. Got TfTBL on PS+ and gave it a go as hadn't played a Telltale game. Since then I have replayed BL1, platinumed BL2 and will start the PreSequel as soon as I get a few things sorted at home. But yeah something about TfTBL just clicked with me, so its a shame there most likely won't be another season.

Did ME3 force you to play MP? I know I was without internet at the time and I got all the resources needed for the "best" ending. Then again I did do everything you could in SP.When I did touch MP to try it out long after the main game I actually enjoyed it.If this is the same as the wartable in DAI only with the option to play the missions yourself then I really don't see what the problem is.

@VanillaLake I know that, you know that, people who visit gaming sites know that but people who don't? Parents, grandparents? They might not. As I said, I think it's a good idea but people like to complain and just pointing out a way it might happen. No harm in being a "little" clearer for those who don't keep as up to date as us.

Good idea, I mean why not? Though I think if trading standards in UK are to get involved it'll probably be because it says Xbox One before Xbox 360. Sort of could imply to those not on game sites it is a remaster first. Just need to make it a little clearer it's a last gen game that can be played on Xbox One also and they'd be grand.

The Gears of War 4 season pass costs £40

rockavitch

2 years ago

I've never bought a season pass as for me it's not worth the price. I instead bought preowned and just picked up the DLC I wanted. Now I no longer buy at release, wait for the patches to get a game working and then buy GOTY. I have my way to avoid this nonsense.I always find it "funny" that there's an uproar everytime this happens though. It obviously works for the companies or they wouldn't do it, so either most people don't care or they just like to have a moan here before supporting the practice anyway. As I said, easily avoided with a little patience.
