Tin Salamunic: Developer Telltale Games has a knack for enriching popular franchises. Whether it’s their comedic writing in Back to the Future or their dramatic representation of The Walking Dead universe, Telltale’s episodic releases aren’t mere spin-offs, they’re compelling expansions of the original creators’ visions. In their latest partnership with Gearbox Software and 2K, Telltale Games crafts yet another masterpiece that deepens an already vast universe. Tales from the Borderlands embodies the series's superb humor without the guns and obsessive looting. Expert writing and dialogue choices take precedence, but there are more action-packed quick time events than in most Telltale titles. As a result, the game captures Borderlands’ colorful chaos with a fresh perspective. This is a fantastic introduction to what may become one of Telltale’s strongest series yet.
