It seems unlikely and pretty silly that two developers would release the fifth and final chapters of their respective episodic adventure games on the exact same day, but what do you want them to do – jump in a time-travelling car and return back from the future> with a copy of The Video Game Almanac 2015?
By which I mean I’m still determined to win Most Forced Back To The Future Reference today, and also that I didn’t play Episode 5 of Gearbox’s pretty fun Tales from the Borderland [official site] last night because I was instead playing the conclusion to Dontnod’s wonderful Life Is Strange. But TFTB is now finished too.
It seems RPS mostly ran tickety-boo while I was on holiday last week but – gasp!> – what’s this, an oversight? You guys! I can’t believe you didn’t mention that the final episode of Telltale’s Tales from the Borderlands [official site] will be out next week, on October 20th. Tch. Clearly I should never go on holiday ever again.
I’ve more catching-up of my own to do, mind – I really enjoyed the first few episodes of Tales but I’m one behind. Here, come have a peek at episode 5.
Gearbox Software’s toon-styled bro-shooter Borderlands [official site] is getting the Hollywood treatment with a new movie based on the franchise, in some form or another anyway. The news comes from Variety, who write that Lionsgate is developing the flick with the help of producers Avi and Ari Arad, although details beyond that remain scant. So here’s what we know so far:
Tales from the Borderlands [official site] has a lot more heart than I’d expected, and a lot less Claptrap than I’d feared. It’s a pretty nice series, I’m saying. The adventures of our merry band of treasure-hunting misfits and grifters will continue today, as Episode 4 is due in a few hours. That screenshot up top isn’t too spoil-y – hey, it’s a snazzy statue – but the trailer that follows is a little, so be warned if you want the antics and japes to come fresh.
The third episode of Telltale’s Tales From the Borderlands [official site] is now out, and would you believe the ragtag group of grifters are in trouble again? I don’t know how much more I can say without spoiling things – I ummed and erred for a while over even the screenshot to use in the header image – but I can tell you it’s out today, and that a trailer and a description follow below.
I can also say that I’ve been surprised by how much I’ve enjoyed Tales From the Borderlands so far, given how boring I find the Gearbox first-person shooters they’re based on.
