Borderlands 3 Players Seeks Help on Steam Forum

PC player base of Borderlands 3 are seeking help on Steam forum for Borderlands 2 regarding several issues.

After building up a lot of anticipation, developer Gearbox Software and publisher 2K Games has finally released Borderlands 3 last week for PC via Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One but is suffering from a series of issues.

Only a day into launch, players on PC platforms start encountering a number of problems with no help at hand. Therefore, they are all rallying up to Steam forums for Borderlands 2 to let other know about their experience.

RELATED: Borderlands 3 to Be Epic Games Store Exclusive

Shortly after the game was announced, an accidental Tweet has revealed in advance that latest installment of popular looter shooter franchise Borderlands will be an Epic Store-exclusive and PC gaming community become furious.

Initially, a legion of angry fans started review bombing on Steam when that news came out and Valve had to take action by flagging them as off-topic review activity, something that Gearbox CEO, Randy Pitchford made quite a deal about.

RELATED: Remnant: From the Ashes Adds Adventure Mode

Back then they were mad because of valid concerns and now things are slowly unfolding as Gearbox has apparently released a rushed product within a set release window that remains half-baked, rather than taking time and fixing it.

People are facing all sorts of problems from lack of DirectX 12 support, frame-rate drops, performance issue and even some of them losing their save files. Some are having trouble with FPS drops regardless of having best graphics settings.

RELATED: Play Anthem With Origin Access

Fans are heading to Steam to talk about issues they are facing because Epic Games Store nether have any forums or user review section. They are only going there in hopes to talk to someone who might have found a solution and can help.

Many users are redirecting them to Gearbox Software official forums since no one has a solution for these problems yet. Developers are reportedly looking into it and affected users are advised to log a ticket at official support of 2K Games.

RELATED: Control DLC May Have Alan Wake Crossover

Borderlands 3 having problem is just not an opinion of sentimental PC players who are not happy about EGS but are facing genuine problem. Even many reviewers gave it a poor score due to those same issues they faced playing earlier.

Despite majority of disappointed fans of the game are being from PC platform, BL3 has player complains from consoles as well. Industry experts are suggesting to trade graphics for frame-rates, which is completely unacceptable for a new game.

RELATED: Borderlands 3 Fans Boycott Game Over Controversy

Some players have initially reported for facing trouble streaming because they didn't had super fast internet and Gearbox has put Denuvo in the game, an online DRM that takes up a lot of their bandwidth and ruining their experience.

Even players on PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X suffered from frame-rate drops that require a patch very soon. Hopefully, Borderlands 3 will try to and get better in next six months or by the time a finished version finally arrives on Steam.

Play Anthem With Origin Access

After seven months of drag following launch, Anthem has finally joined EA Access monthly subscription service.

Though debuted as one of most anticipated video games of 2019, online multiplayer action role-playing game Anthem from developer BioWare and publisher Electronic Arts has been a train-wreck ever since it was released.

After a couple of failed attempts to revive its player base with content and patches, EA has finally made the game available for their subscription-based service EA Access and Origin Access on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Regular subscribers will be able to play Standard Edition of the game and Premier tier members of Origin Access for PC platform can get their hands on Legion of Dawn edition, which has bunch of more cool staffs for each Javelin classes.

Earlier, Origin Access members were only able to get "Play First" trial comprised of a 10-hour preview of main game. Instead of paying $14.99 for Premier subscription, players can now have the game on regular Access for $4.99 only.

RELATED: Resident Evil Project Resistance Gameplay Overview

BioWare's latest open-world action RPG was updated with endgame activity Cataclysm back in August and received another patch on September 4, yet it could never lived up to its hype or even deliver a decent experience for many who supported it.

At one point there was a rumor that Anthem is likely to go free-to-play anytime and now joining EA Access vault has made it pretty much that. They simply do not have enough content to do that like Bungie did with Destiny 2: New Light.

After lead producer Ben Irving leaving recently, the future of Anthem seems uncertain but Electronic Arts pledges to continue their support through post-launch content, which still is a critical and commercial disappointment to them.

Control DLC May Have Alan Wake Crossover

Recently revealed post-launch DLC content for Control may finally tie in to story of Alan Wake in 2020.

In a recent venture with publisher 505 Games, developer Remedy Entertainment has seen critical and commercial success with release of action-adventure game Control on PC via Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

According to their latest announcement for upcoming post-launch content roadmap for the game, two new expansions are revealed and one of them is clearly teasing a tie-in to 2010 supernatural horror universe of Alan Wake.

RELATED: Control Post-Launch Content Roadmap

Before Control, Finnish developer Remedy made a reputation with critically acclaimed psychological thriller title Alan Wake. Although there was a stand-alone follow-up title Alan Wake's American Nightmare, fans never got a true sequel.

Players have already found clues, documents and Easter eggs during their mind-bending exploration of Control that clearly points at events of Bright Falls from first Alan Wake game that was launched almost 10 years ago for Xbox 360.

RELATED: Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot TGS 2019 Trailer

Initially, it was an easily missable teaser image of Control's second expansion AWE but when Remedy creative director/writer Sam Lake shared that image on Twitter with a cryptic caption, many people starts noticing what was up.


RELATED: Resident Evil Project Resistance Gameplay Overview

A closer look at poster of AWE expansion reveals official box art of Alan Wake in top half of its lettering that sued fonts from the same game. In below half, protagonist Jesse Faden of Control is probably fighting Hiss at Federal Bureau of Control.

AWE can either stand for either "Alan Wake Experience" or Altered World Events and the latter one actually makes more sense. Remedy has also teased these references earlier in their 2016 sci-fi adventure shooter title Quantum Break.

Although both Alan Wake and Control are set on different plots, many hints suggest that they both are from same universe and maybe even the latter is some sort of continuation of events that took place in Washington forest a decade ago.

According to press release, AWE will arrive on mid-2020 and will send Jesse to investigations sector of Oldest House, a part where FBC keeps tabs on Altered World Events and Bright Falls' case was what the Bureau investigated earlier.

RELATED: Nioh 2 TGS 2019 Trailer

With every lead matching and pointing to each other, there could is a very good chance for a crossover event or even nothing at all. If not anything, it can very much help revive a beloved series once again by providing a great launch pad.

Through its ending, Control has set up possibilities for a potential sequel to expand further on lead character Jesse Faden's story and despite Remedy expressing to make Alan Wake 2, nothing can be said for sure until next year.

She arranged a mission to look for survivors with best of Bridges 1 and successfully lead them all avoiding BTs (Beached Thing). In three years, they convinced many communities to join UCA but things went south when they came to Edge Knot City.

They came across a militant separatist group called "Homo Demons", who took out their team and held her hostage to protect their liberty. In actual, they are terrorists who kill people and don't shy away from engineering "Voidout".

Sam is called in here to go for a rescue mission on Edge Knot City to bring Amelie back home from their grasp but he cynically declines to work for them ever again, saying they also are a cult like those Demons and he is not a part of them anymore.

Before heading onto any expedition, Sam has to prepare himself with cargo loadout and balance his tools. Every attachment carries weight on him which can impact his movement and his stamina bar may run out pretty fast.

Take a good look at the map to see what sort of terrain you are going to explore, if they have hills to climb or if there is water to pass by. Then plan out your course for journey and pack necessary tools like anchors or ladders.

In between carrying out those packages take a moment of rest by sitting on grass and maybe take a nap as well. To put some pressure off, Sam can lighten his load by placing his cargo on a Floating Carrier that will follow him along.

RELATED: Death Stranding Introduces Troy Baker's Character

At one point, he uses it like a skateboard for climbing down from an extremely rocky area to sneak on MULE enemy camp. There he appeared to have stolen one of their trucks for transport and can ride a motorcycle if he wishes to.

Light travel lets you move at a faster pace and he may have trouble balancing himself if there is too much load over his shoulder. Aside from taking care of himself in Recharging Spring, Sam can try to cheer up his Bridge Baby sometime.

In a boss battle against a beastly BT creature, Sam repeatedly used a weapon called EX Grenade to defeat it. If you manage to spot one of them from far and undetected, then using Anti-BT Handgun on them will be a good idea.

During struggle of your journey, you may often lose a cargo on your way but be sure to get that back when you can. Upon completing deliveries to communities, they will thank him and are most likely to connect with Chiral Network.

Just as they were trying to catch a breath afterwards, a giant door in front of them opens to reveal the infamous Tyrant known as Mr. X standing thereby and the guy puts two mechanical gauntlets in his hands, asserting full control over it.

This could very well be that premise of this new game is set during Raccoon City outbreak event from Resident Evil 2. Mr. X in Project Resistance trailer looks awfully similar to recently released RE2Make and Albert Wesker might be the mystery man.

NBA 2K20 Review-Bombed on Metacritic and Steam

Riddled with micro-transactions and other issues, NBA 2K20 is getting review-bombed on Metacritic and Steam.

Same game wrapped in new package each year, basically that's how most of the sports genre titles operate in general. These games are annually put out in stores with noting more than a few minor updates and a full-priced tag.

Aside from these common criticisms, latest release form this year's basketball simulation video game series came under fire by upset fans and NBA 2K20 starts getting review-bombed on Metacritic and Steam within weeks of launch.

This outrage from fans is largely due to aggressive micro-transactions used in the game and reports of crashes that has currently sunk its Metacritic user score to 0.5 and similarly, reviews on Steam has been overwhelmingly negative so far.

Players are highlighting methods used in NBA 2K20 as a gambling scheme for publisher and they were fed up with its long loading times. Its glitches are so weird that people started a hashtag #Fix2K20, which started trending on Twitter.

If carelessness of developers about actually adding new content to their game was not obvious enough until now, it became more evident than ever when PC version of NBA 2K20 shows you a logo of NBA 2K19 on Windows taskbar.

Whenever big-name developers and publishers do something that irks their fan-base, they often lean towards review-bombing to get their attention on particular issue since most of these companies do not listen to their customers at all.

RELATED: Days Gone New Game Plus Mode Release Date

Even though heavily panned by fans, sports-title selling companies like developer Visual Concepts and publisher 2K Games will shamelessly put out new NBA 2K installments each year that is just few roster updates and some slight changes.

Considering how sports titles are one of the most money generating machines in video game industry, developers should get back to fixing these major issues of NBA 2K20 that are angering fans on all platforms as soon as possible.
