Borderlands has always been Unreal Engine though, hasn't it?
Yup, UE 3 for the first three games.

My daughter got me a Claptrap Funko Pop for the holidays.

In other news, I finished the main story and am mopping up some side missions and challenges before I intend to put it away for a while.
Zane was rather fun to play, has some good one-liners and an interesting skill tree.
A nice touch: a few new one-liners are added late in the game game, for variety.

Every time i play this game it's for the last time, but I keep finding "just one more thing" to finish up. While working on one of those I came across a fully functioning roller coaster that I'd somehow overlooked- fun stuff! I've almost reached the level 50 cap, though there are still ways to improve the character afterwards.

If you play this game DON'T make the mistake I did! The game rewards achievements by "emailing" you weapons. For example, after 100 kills with Dahl weapons, Dahl might send you a new gun as a reward. But the email menu is badly designed, easy to miss, and the weapons therefore can be pretty old by the time you remember to fetch them. Even missions that reward you on the spot can also trigger an additional reward by email.

This is also where golden keys end up-- you redeem Shift codes just like in Borderlands 2, but then you will still see 0 keys in-game, until you check your "email".

And here I thought the BL designers peaked in their 'cluster frak UI design' skills during BL2.

I appreciate what they were trying to do by integrating in-game rewards into the social menu. Making the manufacture contact you via "mail" thus the world feels more alive. But I forget about it ALL THE TIME because normally you are in the social menu to deal with party grouping not in-game mechanics. I would rather there be a normal inventory location for these in-game related messages and items.

you are just getting started at level 50. Time to grind anointed loot to build the perfect character and work your way up mayhem levels. I see a lot of complaints about less focus on legendaries but honestly it gives it much more freedom to customize your character IMO. In BL2 you ended up grinding for the same legendaries with little regard for character specific boons.

That's exactly what I'm trying NOT to do. Please don't encourage me. :-)

I do want to beat one of the Torgue arenas though. And to do that I need better gear.. I should just walk away, but Torgue was all, get that weak sh*t outta here, and it got my blood boiling.

Sigh. Sure enough, now I'm playing mayhem 3. Thanks a lot.

A new patch is downloading now. Here's the official announcement, but the list of bug fixes is very small compared to previous patches (granted, it was the holidays). https://borderlands....otfixes-jan-16/
Notable: Rare drops are boosted for the next two weeks.
