Tales from the Borderlands [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

Telltale is the leading developer when it comes to crafting engaging, emotional, memorable, and now absolutely hysterical narratives with well-known franchises. Tales from the Borderlands is no different, as they've taken the very unique backdrop setting of Gearbox's games and crafted a compelling and immensely entertaining adventure with characters voiced to perfection that I hope to see again one day.

The Pros: 

+Constantly hysterical, especially finger-gun firefights
+Fantastic character development
+Top notch soundtrack and voice acting

The Cons: 

-The original wait between episode releases
-Some choices don't seem to really matter in the end
-It ends

One would think that turning the popular shooter Borderlands into a narrative focused adventure with no shooting at all (aside from some amazing pretend finger-gun shootouts) would be asinine. Borderlands has always been about using millions of guns, shooting bandits and psychos, and converting that into a story driven title seems as it was going to be an immense challenge for Telltale.

New Aliens: Colonial Marines Making-Of Video Features More Human vs. Xeno Action

It may be a slow news day today but the fine folks over at Sega have released something that may be worth your time to check out.  The game itself may still be a few months away, but in case you’re excited for Aliens: Colonial Marines then you may want to take a look at this new making-of video.  As per the tradition set forth by the video game industries and the many PR people that occupy it, talking heads are abundant in this new making-of video, but it does give us what we’re most excited for: human vs. xeno combat footage.

Aliens: Colonial Marines Hands-On [E3 2012]

Seeing a game in action is one thing but actually getting some hands-on time with it is when things get truly interesting.  It’s fine to see a game be demoed or presented through a pre-recorded video, but grabbing a controller putting a game through its paces is when it’s known if a game is on the track to greatness or if we’ve basically been tricked for the last few months and the game in question is merely a fake gemstone that could pass for the real thing at first but upon closer inspection is a noticeable fake.

Aliens: Colonial Marines Is Finally Given A Release Date

At long last Sega has finally announced a release date for Aliens: Colonial Marines, the oft-delayed Aliens fps game that could either be amazing and give fans of the Aliens franchise everything they want or it could be so bad that being impregnated by a face hugger would be a more enjoyable experience.  Originally set to drop in the first half of 2012, Sega and developer Gearbox Software decided to let Aliens: Colonial Marines bake in the oven a bit more since I guess an estimated four year+ dev time wasn’t enough to ensure the product was in tip top shape.

Borderlands 2 Special Editions' Content Finally Revealed.

New Aliens: Colonial Marines Screens and Video May Either Please Or Disappoint You

If there’s one sci-fi FPS game that people seem to be generally excited about its Aliens: Colonial Marines.  Being the franchise that initially started the space marine craze, at least in the world of cinema, Aliens was a kick-ass film and having the opportunity to experience that in a video game is something that may be too good to pass up, even if we’re all sick and tired of dudebro corridor shooters.

Borderlands 2 Gets a September Release Date.

2K Games and Gearbox Software finally revealed today when Borderlands fanatics will be able to once again return to Pandora and engage in some wild co-op looting action in  Borderlands 2.

Aliens: Colonial Marines Collector's Edition Leaked, Looks Slightly Cool

We may have our first major piece of “it’s kind of cool but is kind of silly junk” video game item of 2012.  The wallets of consumers may be thinning in some respects due to the economy, but that isn’t stopping video game publishers from releasing Collector’s Editions' that feature a $40 mark up so we can partake in the joy of having one extra weapon or a nice statue to collect dust on our shelf.  Today we have what appears to be a leak for the Aliens: Colonial Marines Collector’s Edition, which sadly doesn’t include a mini face hugger.

Take Two Gives Release Updates For XCOM, Borderlands 2 and Spec-Ops

There’s nothing better to do on a Tuesday afternoon other than to listen to a financial conference of a video game company and that’s how I’m spending my Tuesday. Earlier today Take Two Interactive recapped their quarterly financial overview and amidst giving updates on sales of games like L.A. Noire and NBA 2K12 the company has given some small updates on a few key titles.
