    I think he left due to the monetization structure this game is going to have. So he jumped ship like the guy from Dragonage 4 before all hell breaks loose.

    Did the border lands 3 youtuber really get shut down?
    I had heard he was taking a break from all social media for a few months and deleted (deactivated) his Twitter and everything else as well.

    Great show guys as usual. Be kind to Remnant from the Ashes, I think it deserves a "Don't Miss this-Review" playing it now and it is pretty really good. Didn't get much hype unfortunately, but that might be a good thing. Hope it does well…

    "Need for Speed: Heat, will not have loot boxes nor will it ever"
    Me: LOL

    *"Loot Boxes"*, people!
    They could really be a man of his/their words. BUT… knowing EA. Profit comes first.

    There are still multiple ways or mechanics they will milk you.

    FUCK Borderlands and every company involved in it all the way up the chain. Nothing but toxicity coming from all of them. They won't be getting any of my money. Not just saying it. I'm someone who never got into borderlands and was very interested in the series after the BL3 series… until the cunts wafted their blue waffle all over the internet.

    I see a lot of hate towards Tim. It kinda sucks, since I think he is a good dude. I feel pretty bad seeing as both LG and commentors shit on him. Im listening to his gaming podcast and he is calm, focused and lovely guy. Not all things in development process depends on single person – this is something that industry covered a lot in recent years. This situation gives me a perspective on how toxic our community can become (intentionaly or not) for not very good reason.

    Spread peace friends, we are all in this together!

    Man I hope they don’t monetize this game through the roof. The original halos are so great, but if you try to mix that vibe with the new junk in video games, it’s all going to be a huge mess like 4 and 5

    Are you kidding me now these two stupid Fucks are trying to hate on halo!? I mean is there an actual fucking game besides the Witcher that you video game haters even like? This shit is so bad for gaming. Everyones so entitled it’s crazy. You guys are fucking up the future by crying to developers about everything. This is gonna just hurt real gamers in the long run. I really hope you guys understand the core reasons people game one day soon. You are steering the youth in a very wrong directions with terrible expectations. This is bad, guys.

    then Nintendo, and other publishers, should have their own videogame music channels and make bank off them. we'll have a legit place to listen, and we all win.

    Question: If Denuvo "works" by preventing file tampering, does this mean no more community patches in Borderlands 3? Actually, would Denuvo prevent all player created mods from working in games with Denuvo?
