Gearbox is a shitty developer with shitty business practices. Sad!

Nah man -- Gearbox is full of amazingly talented game developers. It's not fair to blame the employees for the actions of one person. Be kind. They're the ones forced to cringe and bear it every time the boss shoots himself in the foot.

I wasn’t blaming the individual employees; I’m sure they’re good ppl. I meant to blame the ppl at the top making the decisions who screwed you over.

I hear ya and thanks for making the distinction. It's easy for many to conflate the Developer (corporate entity) with the developers (people who work hard and actually create the game). All clear, all good now. :)

Agreed. It's not fair to the rest of the company when the CEO acts like a petulant child and they have to take the flak for it.

Furthermore, he's the FACE of a company and should ACT LIKE IT. If he communicates with customers by lashing out at them in such a way, then he really has no business being a CEO if he acts so immaturely. Plus, he should very well know what a microtransaction is.

2/2 I'm just very upset that people didn't get paid for work in a creative industry that's already hard to get into in the first place.

Agreed. So many great people get screwed over by greedy, selfish, idiotic corporate decisions. I have plenty of games, and developers who are gamer friendly (). I'm not buying 3. I'm not interested in supporting if they're going to be this greedy.

The hard truth is, the only people hurt by these decisions are the talented people whose work is mangled by the money people. At one time, The Borderlands franchise was the defining example of gamer-friendly DLC. Now they're competing with uPLay and Origin to be the worst.

The new voice really sucks, but I understand why you aren't doing it anymore. I had no idea who voiced claptrap until recently and it's kinda sad to see the one who's been there forever be replaced. I just wish there was some way you could/would come back
