Your last two posts in response to mine show that you're being overly defensive and choosing to put enthusiasm for a beloved franchise in front of a more rational and non hyperbolic approach after five / seven years after the last game. As if Gearbox was beyond caution (the same company that released Duke Nukem Forever and Aliens: Colonial Marines), and as if mentioning risks in the face of the current triple-A gaming landscape was unreasonable, especially since certain key details were gated until April 3rd (assuming they share those details by then).
Nah, what you're doing is something like this:
Imagine a couple having dinner with their son at a restaurant and you sitting across the room.
Son: Dad, mom. I've met this wonderful girl.
Mom and dad: Oh, really?
tpi2007: (Oh, dear...)
Son: We talk all the time and I'm about to ask her out.
Mom and dad: That's great, son. We are very happy for you. Good luck.
*tpi2007 walks to this family's table.
tpi2007: Just FYI it is known that couples break up after a few months going out.
Family: Wait... What?
tpi2007: Even if they get married statistically speaking it is likely that they would eventually get a divorce. Cheating, a monotonous life and even death can break a couple apart.
Family: Oh my God!
*tpi2007 sits with the family.
tpi2007: I know, right? So it would be better if you lowered your expectations like right now. Better, give up and set a daily alarm on your phone reminding you to lower your expectations about everything. Worked wonders for me.
Family: Can anyone please get this maniac out!?
tpi2007: But it is the truth! Let me do a quick Google search to show you.
Family: Why are you like this?
*tpi2007 is being forcefully removed from the table.
tpi2007: Love is for irrational people! Liking things is overrated! Don't do that!
I'm thinking about making it a comic.
