Is anyone still picking up BL3 after all the latest shenanigans?

As for me, no. Between the Randy Pitchford ordeal and 2K/Take Two sending goons to SupMatto's house, basically stalking and harassing him for 10 hours straight and getting his YouTube channel deleted, I'm all onboard the #BoycottBorderlands3 train. I'm not supporting these scumbags, which is exactly what buying the game new entails. 

Here's an idea: if they or any of these companies don't want their shit getting leaked, then they should impose better security measures.

“I will add that since I’ve had time to reflect on the situation, I’d say excitement got the better of my judgment,” SupMatto said. “As an adult, as someone who’s thought about it, it was a pretty shitty thing to do.”

Following the alleged visit from investigators, SupMatto’s Discord account was terminated for being “involved in selling, promoting or distributing cheats, hacks or cracked accounts.” He voluntarily closed his Twitter account, too, and later dispelled rumors that Take-Two and 2K were behind the disappearance of his profile.

SupMatto says he’s seen how online communities, many with disparate motives, have latched on to his story and used it to further online crusades against 2K, Gearbox, and others. He says many people commenting on the issue are “exaggerating” or don’t have all the facts. As a result, after issuing his latest video, SupMatto says he’s taking time away from his online activities.  https://www.theverge.com/2019/8/7/20758955/2k-games-borderlands-3-supmatto-defense-leaks-youtube

I admit that I chuckled a bit at how well that lined up with the OP.  

I want to see what will happen to the characters of Tales from the Borderlands (Telltale) so I'll look a playthrough and that's pretty much it ^^

Switch Friend Code : 3905-6122-2909 

I would have if it were on Switch, but I doubt I will bother with it otherwise. I only played the first one and while I enjoyed it, there are other games I could be playing and enjoy more. Having it on the go however would have given me the extra time to fit it in.

Nintendo Switch Friend Code: SW-5643-2927-1984

Probably not, I enjoyed the first game and played it a ton back in the day, but after at least half a dozen attempts have never managed to get more than ten hours into Borderlands 2, not bothered with the Presequel thing either... think I'm just fed up of the franchise, and the trailers they've been showing off haven't really impressed me. My girlfriend is a huge Borderlands fan though so chances are she'll buy it and try and make me play co-op with her, lol.

Nope, I'd much rather play and support Greedfall.

For sure. Borderlands games are fun! I couldn’t care less about some YouTube account getting deleted because they figured a way to look at private streams. I don’t know the guy, don’t care about him, and honestly I don’t care about the people that make the game either. The only thing that matters to me is if the final product is any good.

Definitely! Every Borderlands game I've played has been fantastic so there's no reason not to!

Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Epic gets the same treatment as EA from me, soooooo... Nope!

As for a short excerpt of the reasons why it gets that treatment, look up at Chazore's post

Same reasons why I won't be buying it plus the Take Two/2K assholes showing up at SupMatto's house and harassing/stalking him. That alone earns its spot on my blacklist, but Randy Bitchford adds plenty of fuel to the fire with all of his shenanigans. 

They deserve to lose money/sales for the shit they pulled, and I remind you that by buying the game new (hence giving them money), you ARE supporting these assholes, no way around it.
