A while back, I wrote a piece talking about my concerns for Borderlands 3. It was a story I’d seen unfold so many times before; a follow-up to a highly regarded game that only comes after a long break. To many, the game has been a disappointment, if you listen to the same Podcasts I do anyway. To me though, Borderlands 3 was exactly what I wanted it to be: More Borderlands.
Throughout this whole arc, Meerus has been a point of contention for me. With this chapter, my various suspicions of him are starting to take form. It’s not just Meerus though, within this chapter sees further development of our main cast in the build up to the final confrontation with Moro which now seems to be coming over the distant horizon.
I’ve been impressed by the visuals of Demon Slayer on repeated instances at this point, but for the season finale it really seemed like the studio wanted to go out with a bang. That, this is the longest stint of the show without any action in it, so we need to end with some kind of high octane thrill ride.
