Interesting. But looking at screenshots, it looks to me like there's no overall graphical plan? Everything seems to be a mashup of colors, shapes, and things, which doesn't come together very nice.

I think what you are seeing is the different factions, there are a whole bunch of different races, Vanguard (Humans), Dvar (Space Dwarves), Kir'Ko (Sentient Bugs), and others all with different looks and game mechanics.

Just a bit of a word of warning. I have tried the game out this morning and did find a major bug that if you want to customize your commander, it hangs, spinning beachball, requiring a force quit. So yeah there are some bugs.

Maybe they should have had a beta for Mac users before they released it so that they caught some of these bugs? :bye:

It's been reported in the bug section and I've added my voice to that thread on Steam, hopefully they'll get a fix out.

So anyone interested in the game, you may want to wait a bit until they fix that.

It was a good joke. :clapping:

This explains everything! Epic has been aiming for feature parody, instead of feature parity.

Awh, I should have done that on purpose, that would have been just the right amount of wit to salt and shade thrown at Epic.... I mean...

Um...yes...you found my completely on purpose use of that word, a joke that I thought no would get, but you did, well done...you.

:blush:

What, my face is always that color....

Fine, you got me, let me just fix that...

Maybe, stay with me here, they might want to have feature parody parity with their competitor.

Nope that doesn't look right...

Maybe, stay with me here, they might want to have feature parody parity Parrot-y with their competitor.

Nailed it!

Who's a good bird, you are Parrot-y.

Rawk...Polly want a feature...Rawk.

Of course you do Parrot-y, but Epic Games Store doesn't have "Features" they just have free games that try to distract from the fact they don't have a fleshed out fully functioning game store.

Hey now, they can try bribing me with free games all they like, but its a trap! :P

In all seriousness I don't hate Epic Games.

I just really wish that for as long as they've been around that maybe they might want to spend some time and maybe some money on making their store/launcher function better seeing as how they are competing with the likes of Steam.

Maybe, stay with me here, they might want to have feature parody with their competitor.

Its not like there was a correlation between me avoiding buying Borderlands 3 as soon as it came out because the Epic Games store didn't have a throttle the download feature like Steam. And me finally buying the game had nothing to do with them finally adding that feature.

Nope totally not...

Of course in classic Epic Games fashion the feature did nothing, I could set it to whatever value I wanted 64kb, 128kb, etc and the game would happily download at the same rate regardless.

But it was the thought that counts, right?

Borderlands 3 finished downloading this morning and so far everything is "working" it just got a little confused with my 2nd monitor, that required me unplug it to change the resolution in game down on my iMac's screen, no Borderlands 5120 x 2880 will not work, and then replug it in, but otherwise I think everything is good.
