Catch a jaunty tune (and an elbow to the grill) in this Tales from the Borderlands trailer

Telltale titles and Borderlands are almost polar opposites. One has you constantly making tough, game-altering decisions. The other only asks that you decide between shooting everything and dying. (Hint: you defini...

Here are more than 100 Tales from the Borderlands: Zer0 Sum screenshots

I take lots of screenshots. It's just something I do. The signature cel-shaded art style of the Borderlands series lends itself to grabbing sharp, colorful screens of crazy weapons, breathtaking vistas, and intense cutsc...

Review: Tales from the Borderlands: Zer0 Sum
by Darren Nakamura

[Disclosure: Anthony Burch, who consulted on the story for Tales from the Borderlands, was previously employed at Destructoid. As always, no relationships, personal or professional, were factored into the review.]

When Tales from the Borderlands was announced, it was met with cautious optimism. Telltale's basic game structure that focuses on dialogue and choice seemed like a good way to explore the harsh planet of Pandora through the eyes of people who are not mass murderers. There are a lot of colorful characters on the planet, and not everybody has a backpack full of weapons and a thirst for blood.

As it turns out, there are exciting stories to tell for those who would sooner talk their way out of trouble than fight. Telltale really knocked it out of the park with this one.

Tales from the Borderlands behind the scenes video vaguely answers a question about Handsome Jack

Back when Tales from the Borderlands was first announced at last year's VGX, one of the questions that came up was, "Wait, why is Handsome Jack in the trailer if this occurs after the events of Borderlands 2? Shouldn't he be...

First look at Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series

Every time Telltale's Game of Thrones comes up, the prevailing comments are always the same: "When will we see what it looks like?" The answer to that question is "now," and the answer to the followup question is, "eh, it lo...

First video lands from Telltale's Tales from the Borderlands

Maybe Activision's new Tony Hawk game should be called Boarder Lands. A little bit of piggybacking, like when they named the newest Call of Duty after the Nintendo handheld classic Advanced Wars.  Taking a break fr...

Telltale's Game of Thrones is all about the trees, man

Telltale's outlined the plot for the SIX episodes of its take on Game of Thrones, and wow, it sounds like the best lumberjack simulator in years. There are a whole bunch of trees (motherf*cking IRONTREES), and you have to dec...

Telltale's Game of Thrones will be six episodes, coming soon

Six episodes? Six? What the hell is this?! We've known for a while that Telltale Games (The Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us) was making a game based on the hit Lord of the Rings spin off Game of Thrones (pictur...

Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series hints 'Ironwoods'

Look at this brand new tweet from Telltale Games. Ironwoods, eh? What does that mean for their upcoming Game of Thrones game? Well, besides hard trees. And how does it relate to the earlier Forrester hint they dropped awhile back?

Hands on with Tales from the Borderlands photo
Hands on with Tales from the Borderlands
by Abel Girmay

Telltalle has been a busy beehive lately. Having wrapped up The Walking Dead Season 2 and season one of The Wolf Among Us, this fall will bring us right into the first episode of Tales from the Borderlands. Darren seemed positive on the game when he saw it at E3, but for a series like Borderlands that built its name more on its genre fusion gameplay than it's setting, I didn't know what to expect or hope for going into this demo.

After it was over, I came out with confirmation that Telltale is still the best at what it does.

The Walking Dead Pinball is just as good as I had hoped

Zen Studios has been quite busy the past few years expanding its line of pinball tables; most of which have been in the form of licensed Marvel and Star Wars tables. There have been videogame-themed tables in the past --...

Review: The Walking Dead Season 2: No Going Back
by Chris Carter

I really enjoyed watching Clementine's tale unfold over the course of The Walking Dead Season 2. It managed to establish a different tone than the first season, which makes them rather hard to compare bit by bit.

But in terms of delivering a suspenseful, emotional finale, I think Lee's final outing takes the cake. Season 2's No Going Back is the last time we'll see Clementine for a while, but for the most part the episode deals with many of the same themes we've seen in her adventures so far.

Not that it's a bad thing, mind you -- just don't go in expecting it to blow your mind.

This is it: Final trailer for The Walking Dead Season 2

This will spoil season 2 for you up to this point. If you're not caught up (like me), don't watch. Otherwise, get excited about "No Way Back," the final episode in season 2 of The Walking Dead. Can it live up to the first season's strong finale? "No Way Back" hits PC/Mac and North American PS3/Vita on August 26; Xbox 360 and European PS3/Vita on August 27; iOS on August 28.
