Listener Questions (Tweet Us or Email [email protected]):

Jared Schuh asks, “If you could add legs to any inanimate object, (like the gun with legs in Borderlands 3), what would you give legs?”

The Dadcade asks, Where do you want a series like Borderlands to go?”

PixelBrave asks, “If you had one more day at PAX East, what’s a game you would have wanted to check out or have more time with?”

Andrews Cogswell asks, “FromSoft has now done high fantasy, Victorian horror, and samurais. Where would you like them to go next with a new IP?”

Emmett Watkins asks, “Alex (or anyone else who might have tried Shadow Warrior 2), would you think the weapon loot system from that game would be worth bringing to Borderlands 3, or would you all like the random gun system to go unchanged?”

Pixelbrave asks, “If you had one more day at the show, what’s a game you would have wanted to check out or have more time with?”

Paul Warren asks, “Which is better – ambient OST’s or melodic OST’s?” and “Will there be people someday trying to play vanilla Fortnight like they want to play vanilla World of Warcraft?“

John Maddock emailed us asking, When Spider-Man and many other single player based games come out people are upset that the dlc is announced beforehand and feel as if it should be included in the base game. Then when games as a service such as Anthem or the division come out people get nervous if there is no roadmap for the entire rest of the year of content. So the question is are people just being finicky or is there a change in the winds where gamers are more accepting of add-on content post launch?”

    Chase here,

    Just a quick response to Blessing saying that the Souls games don’t teach you how to play. they do, but they instruct through playing them. Every successful and unsuccessful encounter shows the player which tactics work. This is why you can start a new game file with a level 1 character and school enemies; you simply apply the knowledge gained through interacting with the game.

    Where it IS obscure is in directing the player exactly where to go, or how items work. But that is because the game greatly privileges exploration as a design.

    1. Chase Williams says

      And items meant to be immediately consumed or assist the player in the core gameplay (like healing, stats buffs, regeneration), are consistently explained in the item descriptions across all the games. Obscure items are usually involved with quest lines or optional content.
