quote NBCompletely agree, although I loved every enemy in borderlands it could really have used a few different varieties. This one will probably be jam packed with enemies so extra the fun.Well damn, the new enemies look and sound awesome! I can't wait!
The enemies in this game definitely look like they will be cooler and there will be a wider variety than the millions of skags/bandits you see 24/7 in Borderlands 1.
quote MLongfellowDeedsPossibly but when it comes down to it they had obvious skills geared toward boosting damage and other things to certain types of weapons. To use your analogy, yes you could use a shotgun as Mordecai but you aren't going to get nearly the same boosts and bonuses to do so.I believe what Gearbox is doing for BL2 is trying to make it so that there are no under used characters (ala Brick). I can't blame them but it makes each character less unique. In BL1 it's not like you COULDN'T have a Mordecai who was really good w/ Shotguns (for example). Every character has a few skills that affected all weapon types....not to mention the weapon proficiencies, so anyone could be real good with a weapon set if they used it enough. Generalizing weapon skills almost makes weapon proficiencies pointless?
quote The PursuitI might be the only one who doesn't like this concept.quote SpartanNinjaE- freaking - xactlyquote The PursuitIf this is true it would be pretty awesome! I'm actually surprised they didn't do this before. But I can now super spec any character. With unique skills but still awesome.quote Shadow of DeathSpartanNinja - Actually, in BL2 they intend to make it so every character can be specc'd out to suit your preference, unlike BL1. So no character in BL2 will be especially good with certain weapon types over other characters.
That's the plan anyway. It's possible people will find certain character's action skills or skill trees suited for particular weapons. For example, I can't see the Gunzerker action skill being particularly useful with sniper rifles, but he might be very good with snipers the rest of the time.
I completely agree with all of this. I want every character to be good with every weapon but I didn't mind the specific characters fitting your playstyle. Either way I'm cool though. ^^
Sounds pretty sweet.
quote SpartanNinjaWell, although it wasn't really their fault, there is Duke Nukem Forever...Yeah Gearbox is one of the few devs that I havent found any real dirt on... go figure.
quote The PursuitThats great pimp daddy Capcom and EA to you mortal.unlike Capcom and EA of course
