Lot of fancy terms like Warrior and etc. but nothing explained.

What did you not understand?
Jack is head of hyperion
Jack stole vault key from tannis
Jack uses angel to trick vault hunters
Jack charges vault key with siren power
Vault huters try to steal key and fail
Jack unleashes the warrior that was housed in the vault
Vault hunters win against fight, kill jack
.... Some really complicated stuff there.

Yeah, this game isn't exactly Final Convoluted Fantasy in the story department.

It tells its story like every single HALO game ever made. Lots of fast talking and made up terms without any backstory.

Doesn't get more cliche then JACK WILL ACTIVATE THE WARRIOR TO DESTROY WORLD. Just wants to do it for no reason.


FEAR THE WARRIOR! ULTIMATE WARRIOR!

How convoluted is that?

What I got from this entire exchange is both Halo and Borderlands series weren't exactly made for its story. Sounds about right.

I am dumbfounded at how many people still don't know how to use google or the internet.

About the only "made up terms" would be "Eridium" and the names of the gun manufacturers, sans "Bandit." >.>

This game is so hard to understand. *Tries to keep a straight face*

Sorry. I don't get what you don't understand?

Not quite. He doesn't want to use The Warrior to simply destroy the world, he wanted to use it to cleanse Pandora so that he had a blank slate to rebuild it how he wanted it. To get rid of the trash in one fell swoop and start it anew according to his megalomaniacal vision of perfection.

And the point that KingThing was making is that the story isn't convoluted.

Most of the characters in the game are simply caricatures of a classic archetype. It's the style of the game. It would be foolish to think that the story wouldn't follow in a similar fashion.
