Do not want? I'm conflicted.

I'd play Tales of the Gearbox Rape of the Alien Franchise

If they're going to do other games, I'd love to see their take on Fallout.

Yes

I'm intrigued. I'll wait for reviews but if it's good I'll play it.

Telltale Reveals First Tales From the Borderlands Screens

Telltale Games has revealed the first screenshots for Tales From the Borderlands, offering a first glimpse at The Walking Dead and Wolf Among Us developer's take on Pandora and the dark stories therein. Familiar faces include the likes of Zer0, while Handsome Jack, Angel, Moxxi, Tiny Tina, and of course, Claptrap may also feature in the ful game.


Obviously shooting will take a backseat in Tales From the Borderlands, but anything you loot during the game's narrative will be available for use in "other areas of the Borderlands franchise". Like Telltale's other recent output, the onus will be on an episodic story, with tough choices that shape the course of the narrative. The game plays out after the events of Borderlands 2, from the two different viewpoints of Hyperion employee Rhys and fast-talking con artist Fiona.

I think I'm officially on the "Don't Care" side. It's just not a compelling enough universe that I care to play this sort of game in.

Matt925 05-05-14 02:37 PM

Re: Tales From the Borderlands: An Episodic Game Series from Telltale Games
 
It does seem like an odd title to choose for this but I love borderlands and I love the other telltale games so I'm in.

Pass.

RichC2 05-07-14 12:24 PM

Re: Tales From the Borderlands: An Episodic Game Series from Telltale Games
 
This one I don't get, just put a story in with the already created engine and done. They have a name for it: DLC.

chuckd21 05-07-14 12:25 PM

Re: Tales From the Borderlands: An Episodic Game Series from Telltale Games
 
It'll be priced as much as or cheaper than DLC had Gearbox put it out themselves, so...

But the gameplay would remain the same, I'm assuming with this it's going more the adventure game route?

chuckd21 05-07-14 12:33 PM

Re: Tales From the Borderlands: An Episodic Game Series from Telltale Games
 
Correct, it'll be like every other Telltale game of the last few years.

slop101 05-07-14 12:35 PM

Re: Tales From the Borderlands: An Episodic Game Series from Telltale Games
 
As far as the story elements of Borderlands, they were always thin and uninteresting, and the only things I appreciated were the humor elements. I don't think that's enough to sustain a game like this.

MoviePage 05-07-14 03:24 PM

Re: Tales From the Borderlands: An Episodic Game Series from Telltale Games
 
I think it's safe to say that both the story and humor elements of this version will be beefed up, since that's all there is.

Michael Corvin 05-07-14 05:02 PM

Re: Tales From the Borderlands: An Episodic Game Series from Telltale Games
 
I'm still good with this as long as it's on next gen consoles. Screw the tweener/pre-sequel game on last gen machines.

The Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us, Game of Thrones, and Tales From The Borderlands will all be released onto next-gen. Expect more information to come out of E3.

The question is if Game of Thrones and Tales From The Borderlands will be day-and-date on next-gen or if there will be a delay.

Definitely don't want. I could barely make it through the trailer. I am looking forward to AGoT though, and I am hoping to grab Walking Dead Season 2 during the Steam sale.

Decker 11-13-14 05:09 PM

Sorry, flash. I stand corrected.

I want it though.

I guess I may buy it on my phone at some point. Their TWD and AWAU ports were great.

chuckd21 11-13-14 05:50 PM

Re: Tales From the Borderlands: An Episodic Game Series from Telltale Games
 
Okay, I'd play that.

shizawn 11-13-14 06:07 PM

Re: Tales From the Borderlands: An Episodic Game Series from Telltale Games
 
Looking forward to both this and Game of Thrones series. Still unsure if I'll wait until most or all of the episodes are released though.

Never played Borderlands but will play this because it's from Telltale games. Same with their upcoming GoT game.

Fuck. I've been busy fucking about w/ some personal shit for months that I've forgotten to beat season 2 of Walking dead and Wolf among us. I'm so behind on my gaming.

Out today on PC, PS3, and PS4. XB1 tomorrow, 360 on 12/3.

This has been getting pretty good reviews, although I'm not a fan of these types of "games" that are really just interactive movies rather than actual games.

chuckd21 11-25-14 01:47 PM

Today? Jesus. TOO MANY GAMES.

Played through episode 1 today in one sitting. It felt a little longer than the average Telltale episode. I'm a big fan of the Borderlands games and the recent Telltale stuff and this was a great mix of the two styles. Liked the switching between the two main characters.

Yeah, I should've never doubted that this would be excellent. It was fantastic. And the Telltale engine jankiness appears to be fixed!

Re: Tales From the Borderlands: An Episodic Game Series from Telltale Games
 
Can someone explain how this will be different from a regular Borderlands game? I really have no knowledge of Telltale games...

Thanks,

Deftones 12-01-14 09:12 AM

Re: Tales From the Borderlands: An Episodic Game Series from Telltale Games
 
They are basically point and click type games. It's not a shooter like a typical Borderlands game is.

mndtrp 12-01-14 02:10 PM

Re: Tales From the Borderlands: An Episodic Game Series from Telltale Games
 
If you want an idea, I think one of the Telltale games has a free episode available on the PSN. Be it Back to the Future or The Walking Dead, I'm not sure.

CKMorpheus 12-01-14 07:04 PM

Re: Tales From the Borderlands: An Episodic Game Series from Telltale Games
 
Beat the first episode with my wife in one sitting. We had a blast, her making Fiona's choices, and me making Rhys' choices. Can't wait for Game of Thrones tomorrow and TFTB Ep 02 whenever that comes out.

chase3001 12-01-14 07:36 PM

Re: Tales From the Borderlands: An Episodic Game Series from Telltale Games
 
This was a lot of fun. I really enjoyed the "Borderlands" humour. It helps as well if you have played the previous games, as they reference a lot of characters from them.
