Diablo 3 / Borderlands 2

Anyone know why we have a forum for Diablo 3 but not for Borderlands 2?


Both are single player games that you can play with 3 friends if you like, so I don't get it?

    I've wondered about that myself. And it can't be because of D3's forced internet connection because Torchlight 2 doesn't have that and still is listed...

    Yeah, there must be a selection process to get a game covered. I have had Borderlands 2 for about 2 weeks and love it.  I was hoping to see a forum on here as this site can be quite diverse at times.  Diablo 3 was the obvious game I thought to compare it to in terms of the number of players and how you play it.

    In all honesty, I never expected to see D3 covered by MMORPG but seeing as they do, B2 should be too I reckon.

    Well it's neither an mmo nor an rpg so I guess that's why.

    I'm a unique and beautiful snowflake.

    Oh, that's simple. Diablo 3 had, before it's launch, a larger crowd that got interested in it, than Borderlands. So for mmorpg.com it was just a matter of money, whether to cater for the D3 crowd or not.

    Borderlands 2, while not unknown, got by far less hype.

    Let's play Fallen Earth (blind, 300 episodes)

    Let's play Guild Wars 2 (blind, 45 episodes)

    Let's see, you start with very little equipment/gear. Check.

    You find better gear from monsters you kill. Check.

    While on quests for NPCs that need help. Check.

    You level up and appoint talent points. Check.

    To be able to obtain and use better gear. Check.

    That drops from stronger and stronger monsters. Check.

    ... please, just because it's a shooter it's not an RPG? In what way isn't B2 an RPG? Some riddle that is.

    Because Diablo 3 is more popular I would imagine. Notice I said popualr not better.
