The first game was ok. I got used to it and learned. It had fun and challenging moments, which were sometimes polar opposites. Still, I got a lot done and had some fun. So, I moved on to BL2, which immediately looked like a super sweet visual upgrade to the original game. It’s much more than that, though. The AI is better, there are more varieties of weapons, and many other improvements. BL2 is a true sequel and I think playing the first game and then the second made me appreciate them more.
Recently, I finished with BL2 and started playing the Pre-Sequel. At first, I was lost because I was used to playing a character that had an auto turret. So I initially had difficulty in choosing a character. I decided to go with the Jack body double. I wasn’t too happy with the action skill tree, but decided if I didn’t like it I could change at any time. I stuck with it and enjoyed it. In the first two games I primarily used shotguns, especially with fire or corrosive damage. However, in the PS, I used mostly lasers, especially with ice and corrosive damage. I really enjoyed freezing enemies and beating them to death or freezing them while they were airborne only to watch them come smashing down in pieces.
While checking out the DLC for BL2, I noticed I didn’t get some with my edition. Luckily, I realized I had some money in my steam wallet, so I now have all the DLC except for the $1 customization skins, etc. I might pop back in BL2 and see what the new-to-me DLC (Head hunter’s and Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade 2) has in store. I think it’s worth it. I’ve enjoyed this series more than I thought I would.
