Yeah, at the time that was a foreign concept to me. I remember there being a Halloween-ish DLC in the first one, and I LOVED it. With zombies and all. I'm sure Claptrap will have some skill to make him worth using. At least, hopefully.
Nowadays they're called offerings. Tithings were basically taxes that went straight to the church; except now in most places it's optional to donate or not.
I'd like to think they aren't all bad. Some are just lumped together with the common ***** stereotype (not to say it isn't slightly justified, given how many scandals there have been).
I'm not exactly religious, so even if they weren't corrupt; I still wouldn't notice! At least until Yahoo or Twitter told me something.
I'm just real loot-hungry, and Borderlands definitely caters to that. I first made the mistake of going into the Tiny Tina one at like level 20-ish? I was just too curious. First thing I saw were enemies with skulls over their heads. Big mistake. Bailed so hard. Is that DLC not in the GOTY edition? I don't know if I've seen it. Maybe I'm just blind. I don't know, I hope he is too. I hope he isn't nearly as annoying. I get he was made to be that way, but... still.
It's pretty bad. I'm sure they make bank on all those 'tithings' they get anyway.
Or maybe I'm stuck in the middle ages. Not all priests are bad people, but a lot of them tend to be.
I can manage with it, it just seemed like an inconvenience. I mean, the game basically shovels loot in your face; you'd make loads of cash anyway in my opinion. I really did like Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragonkeep, and the pirate one. Spaced the name. Yeah, I'd like to get the Pre-Sequel, but I don't think I'll be getting it right away. Athena(?) would be my character of choice though. I saw they added Claptrap as a playable character too. Not sure how I feel about that.
Basically just a fancy word for religious studies yes. Lol
