Having a full time job and a family makes playing games a challenge. Some days an opportunity to play shines through the clouds like a golden sun ray. Recently, I had the opportunity to catch up with BloodManVile and play some Borderlands 3. I don’t often get the weekend off, but this week I had such a chance and Vile just so happened to be available.
We resumed my campaign. I was working on the main quest. We began by working toward collecting Bio-material to make fuel for our ship. And then we went to find navigation chips to help us find our way in the cold void of space. Just as we were about to find our way onto the ship with our vault relic the Calypso twins showed up to steal the relic and to steal Lilith’s powers! I pointed out some plot holes, but apparently the story demanded the cut scene and so we continued. After the cut scene we fought our way to save Lilith… kind of… and found lots of colorful loot!
We boarded the ship and made our way haphazardly to Promethea. This was all with or without Claptrap’s help… That all depends on if you think his butt plugging a hole in the hull of the ship to be helpful granted that he also caused the hull breach to begin with! We finally are able to warp to Promethea and discover that the planet is being blockaded by a corporation in league with the Calypso twins, Maliwan… When we get to the surface we run into a woman named Lorelei who explains that she works for Atlas (another corporation) and they need help against Maliwan. So, we agree to help.
From there we follow Lorelei and find our way to Lorelei’s boss Rhys in the Meridian Metroplex. We battle our way through town and clear out a control room where we find a holographic rendering of Rhys ready to offer our next mission. After finally catching up with Rhys we decided to call it a day after going through and selling our loot. It was a fun and destructive day in Borderlands: 3.
Below you will see the link to the full gameplay video. If you have the time you can watch our adventure take place from my vantage point. BloodManVile and I have a lot of fun! I will leave you with this disclaimer the game is rated “M” for mature. That means that the game contains violence, gore and off color humor/language at times. Just a heads up, but I hope you enjoy watching if you choose to do so!
