Tales From Borderlands Ep 2 Is What I've Wanted From Telltale For Ages

I've always said that the best thing about Telltale games isn't QTE-heavy action or near-pornographic dedication to depictions of bad things happening to good people.

QTEs Don't Have To Suck

"Press X to not die." It's a gaming cliche at this point, one that many view as a symptom of lazy game design. Quick time events, as they're known, are glorified cut-scenes.

Yikes, right? » 11/25/14 12:00pm 11/25/14 12:00pm

Hey, it's a familiar and awesome voice in the latest trailer for Tales of the Borderlands! Patrick Warburton—the dude best beloved for playing the live-action version of the Tick and voicing Brock Samson—will be part of the acting crew in Telltale-developed game spinning out of Gearbox' RPG shooter series. » 11/13/14 2:55pm 11/13/14 2:55pm

How Tales From The Borderlands Works

When it got announced at VGX at the end of last year, I don't think a lot of people knew what to expect. So it's a Borderlands game? Kind of?
