The game is longer than you might expect.  Though I think that level is a more normal place for the story to end.  I started a Fl4k play through instead of going into TVHM.

Not mine. It contains spoilers.  Places you go, people you will meet, hints of things.

Finished my first play through.  Overall the game is really good.  The missions as a whole are better and less annoying than BL2.  That said BL2 had more quirky memorable missions.  Guns are awesome in BL3, better than in the previous games.  Character builds seems to be a work in progress at this point.  The game is significantly bigger than any of the previous games.  I almost finished at max level through one play through.  I personally like that, though I imagine some people will prefer the old way.  The game has something like paragon levels once you get through the first play through.  And something called Mayhem Mode.  I haven't bothered to figure those out yet.

As for the story it is solid.  There is one thing, a big thing, that happened in the game that I did not like and I need to experience it again to better understand if it makes sense in the bigger picture.  Despite that I thought the story was really good.  That said nothing is going to compare to Handsome Jack as a main bad guy.  The new bad guys, The Twins, are good antagonists but they don't compare to Handsome Jack.  I don't see that as a fault of the game, rather it is acknowledging how good a bad guy Handsome Jack is.

Overall I think the game is a fun time and well worth playing.  Now I need to decide if I am going to try to max out Moze or if I am going to play through other characters.  Right now I am leaning toward a Fl4k play through.

The best thing about TPS is the skill trees.  I think they did a really good job of creating some interesting characters.  The story is ok.  The biggest problem with TPS are the quests which, unless you are doing the main line, are pretty awful.

My understanding is that Gearbox has control over Tales from the Borderlands and that they were trying to get it back up for sale.  No clue if that worked out.  I did watch the game play through on YouTube recently since my last play through was years ago.  Playing the game is obviously better than watching it, but you can get the story that way.

Honestly if you got a character to level 72 and completed all the DLC the next thing I would recommend, if you want to learn more about the universe, is to get Tales from the Borderland.

It is good.  But 15 is pricey.  The main thing it does is show a little of what happened in between BL2 and BL3.  It is a fun DLC.  It has a new Boss to run.  I would personally wait to get it on sale.  No clue when that will happen.

Are you even going to do the OP levels?  I only did to OP3 so adding two level to raise the roof to OP 10 doesn't mean much to me.  Level 80 was nice, but unnecessary.

Just played a mission that is an homage to Lord of the Rings.  I will not say more, other than I loved it.
