After playing through Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel with the Baroness and the Doppelganger and Borderlands 2 with the Gunzerker and the Assassin, Fringe Fiction favors the new changes in the Pre-Sequel over Borderlands 2. First, the vending machines level up with the Vault Hunter’s level which helps greatly. Fringe Fiction is much appreciative of that fact. The Vault Hunter as he or she progresses is stuck with less junk to sell overall and have the opportunity to obtain very rare items at times. Next, the classes are much improved over Borderlands 2. The Baroness is much improved over the Assassin, and she doesn’t die too often unless facing a boss. The Assassin, well, dies a lot in the beginning. The Lawbringer is improved over the Gunzerker somewhat except when facing a particular boss. Third, Fringe Fiction has gained an affection for the Oz kits as they are an effective weapon and a faster method of travel. Fringe Fiction kind of wishes that Borderlands 2 had Oz kits. It would be a much improved experience rather than relying on Relics. Lastly, Fringe Fiction has gained the impression that with the Pre-Sequel, the game prepares the Vault Hunter for the upcoming bosses with the selection of weapons in the vending machine as well as through completion of the main missions. Borderlands 2 does that at times but not too often until much later in the game.
With that in mind, Fringe Fiction hopes that 2K keeps on improving the Borderlands experience. However, we will see how Destiny’s success and failures will impact the upcoming Borderlands. What do you think?
