Sweet Christmas Gift Guide – Tales from the Borderlands

 

Ok people time to hear a sad truth: with Gearbox Software focusing heavily on their newest IP, Battleborn, they have said on many an occasion that Borderlands would be put on the back burner. A bummer I know (though on the plus side I’m sure Battleborn with be an excellent addition to their line up of games), but worry not for the story of the Borderlands is not over yet thanks to Telltale Games and Tales from the Borderlands. Following a little bit after the end of Borderlands 2, Tales (the game, not the developer) starts two main characters: Fiona, a con-woman looking for the big score, and Rhys, a corporate lackey looking to become the next Handsome Jack. Through misfortune and mistrust they become tie together as their fate will be up to you. While this being a CYOA game, it lacks the frantic run and gun play style fans have grown accustom to in the Borderlands series. However it still retains the humor that the series is also known for, and since these character aren’t vault hunters the dangers are more real for them, and me, as we go along. The best thing about this title is that it fills in the Borderlands lore, which before Borderlands 2 was slim to none – and Borderland 2 only as necessary. A must download for all Borderlands fans, seeing how this might be the only thing we get Borderlands wise for a while.
