It's been another banner year for gaming, and whittling down the huge list of 2015's games to find the best wasn't an easy task. We did it anyway. There were some truly standout titles in 2015, even starting back at the beginning of the year with...
Tales from the Borderlands
Tellatale's Tales From the Borderlands has been all over the place. While normally that would be a bad thing for a game, it actually works to TFTB's favor. What started as a story about a con gone wrong has evolved into a wild hunt for treasure and betrayal, and now with "Escape Plan Bravo," a heist adventure. Though all the core players have remained the same, shifting the type of story they're involved in has kept Tales From the Borderlands fresh and different every time you start a new episode. "Escape Plan Bravo" keeps the laughs coming, moves the story along in interesting ways, and is might just be the ultimate penultimate episode Telltale's ever delivered.
Rhys and Fiona continue their search for the Vault beacon in 'Escape Plan Bravo,' the penultimate episode of Tales From the Borderlands.
Rhys and Fiona just can't stay out of trouble, though that's probably par for the course for a couple of wannabe Vault Hunters. In the last Tales from the Borderlands episode, the not-so-dynamic duo found themselves at odds with Vasquez and August after recovering the coveted orb in the depths of an Atlas bunker. The fates of all our characters were in Rhys' hands, and with everything on the line, we were asked to choose between Fiona or Handsome Jack to pull the collective of butts out of the fire. In true Borderlands fashion, everything goes exactly as planned. Except not really at all.
The talented voice actor who brought Ellie to life in The Last of Us is joining the roster of Telltale Games' Tales from the Borderlands.
When last we left our heroes Rhys and Fiona, they'd uncovered a secret bunker in a bandit hideout rife with Atlas technologies. Unfortunately for the group, they weren't alone. At least after all the trouble our quartet of characters had gotten into, they'd finally had a lead on the potential fortune they'd been hunting for, right? Kinda? No? These poor, poor protagonists.
Pandora's adventure game spin-off from Telltale Games, Tales from the Borderlands, is about to unleash its second episode.
Retell the tales of Lee, Clementine, Bigby, Rhys, Fiona and the Forresters in one massive anthology offering some of the best adventure games ever made.
We're going back to Pandora a lot sooner than we thought in Tales from the Borderlands.
Very few people visit Pandora and live to tell about the experience. Even fewer of those people manage to get their hands on one of Pandora's many valuable treasures without a bit of misfortune along the way.
