You're right, but man, I'm really torn here. Gifting Borderlands 2 on steam is almost like a validation that, "we shouldn't have tried...see, we told you that these games won't work on the mobile platform". The catch is, they give us CRAP and tell us that it's cake and we should be HAPPY to eat it. Sadly, if we don't stuff our mouths with it, they interpret that as "we don't want it", and stop trying.
Conversely, hell, buying this says, "Man you guys are awesome and this is EXACTLY what we want."
It's disturbing that the wall between developer and audience is so huge. It's like, unless sites like yours advocates for the fans - which even then is a filtered opinion - there's no way to express that this idea *IS* good but the execution is so damnably piss-poor. We DO want an open world twin-stick Borderlands with random loot drops. We DO want an X-Com ish Borderlands that's more strategy-focused. We DO want Borderlands mobile that doesn't try to be an FPS, but plays to the strengths of the touch device.
What we DO NOT want is a really half-assed thoughtless experience that will be inevitably used as a barometer by 2K Games of success on the platform.
Your TA Plays: Borderlands Legends reveals a game that pleases NOONE, which is the worst crime of all since our dollars are so much louder than any message board post...
...but so f'n contradictory to the message that we'd really like to deliver.
