It's now very common to hear people say, "I'm rather offended by that," as if it gives them certain rights. It's no more than a whine. It has no meaning, it has no purpose, it has no reason to be respected as a phrase.

"I'm offended by that."

Well, so fucking what?

Welcome to the WildSyde!
Comments on recent stuff:

So in a recent Twitter rant about Borderlands 3's exclusivity on the Epic Games Store, Randy Pitchford, the CEO of Gearbox said that "The Epic Games Store will bring balance to the force."

Anakin Skywalker was the person in Star Wars that was prophesied to bring balance to the force.

Now remind Randy, what did Anakin Skywalker do in Star Wars?

Oh, that's right. He killed all of the good guys and brought forth an empire of evil.

Really great analogy there Mr. Pitchford

Maybe people that create things aren’t concerned with your delicate sensibilities, you know? Maybe the species that communicate with each other through the filter of your comfort are less evolved than the ones that just communicate. Maybe your problems are your own to deal with, and maybe the public giving a shit about your feelings is a one way ticket to extinction.

Chalk this up as another game on the VERY long list of once great games that have slowly been ruined by the developers.

This game used to be fun, it used to be in depth, it used to be well balanced, it used to be a lot of things that it no longer is.

You used to level up skills by doing that particular thing. Mining would make you better at mining, cooking would make you better at cooking, etc. Now all progression is locked behind a dumbed-down, half-baked perk system.

Guns used to be made using individual parts that you had to find that all had their own levels, which the overall level of your parts would determine the final effectiveness of the gun, with low level parts making a gun that was borderline useless and the incredibly rare high level parts making guns that were amazing. Now that's been changed to just straight making a gun from scratch (literally just take some basic resources and viola, you somehow magically have an AK-47) with all guns having the exact same stats.

The aiming used to be good, now it seems completely random, with whether or not you actually hit the person you're aiming at essentially just being a roll of the dice.

They made it so that aiming down sights on a gun drains your stamina (because that makes complete sense right, it takes sooooooooo much effort to look down a sight) which essentially makes the game impossible to play the game as a sneaky character.

The newer updates have added literal DOZENS of borderline gamebreaking bugs that still haven't been fixed (head glitching, glitching outside of map boundaries, seeing through objects, invoking server desync in order to essentially instantly kill an opponent from saftey, zombies (and players) clipping through terrain and objects, getting in vehicles completely breaking your inventory, etc.) Keep in mind this is a game that has been in development for 6 years. There is absolutely no excuse for bugs this bad being in the game in such a late stage of development, especially when they weren't even in the game until 1 or 2 updates ago when the devs decided for seemingly no reason to massively change the entire game.

They added vehicles. which oh boy, don't even get me started on the sheer amount of abuses that they allow for.

You used to be able to loot items from zombies you killed, that got removed for seemingly no reason.

The optimization was already bad (even for alpha standards) and the latest update made it even worse. Good luck getting above 50 fps without a veritable super computer.

So, to sum this all up, the game used to be fantastic, but the devs stopped listening to the community, made massive changes that nobody asked for, nobody wanted and nobody likes, and now the game is a shell of it's former self.

Can I recommend this game in it's current state? No, absolutely 100% no. Maybe buy it during the upcoming summer sale if it goes down to $5 or so and then revert it back to Alpha update 15 or 16, but anything beyond that is a hard no.

The devs need to stop being morons, revert the changes they've made that literally everyone universally hates, start listening to the community, and stop trying to change the game into something it isn't. You had a good game, people loved it. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
