Brand new screenshots from Tales from the Borderlands, the newest episodic saga from Telltale Games! New screens show off cameos from characters from previous games, like Zer0, Shade and probably a whole lot more. New shots of our new characters, Fiona and Rhys, plus a whole lot of psychos, bandits and Hyperion robots. We’re still looking at a Summer release, but no official date set yet. Telltale is working with both Gearbox and 2K, to deliver Tales from the Borderlands as a solid canon piece to the Borderlands world.

Gearbox: Borderlands 3 Not in Development; two new IPs instead

image

If you were hoping and praying for more Borderlands soon, you may be waiting awhile. Gearbox Software has confirmed that Borderlands 3 (at least currently) isn’t in development. That doesn’t mean there isn’t other good stuff in the works though. 

We are not working on Borderlands 3,” he said during an interview last week. “That is unqualified. We have more to do in the franchise, but no there isn’t a Borderlands 3.

And it isn’t a question of semantics, that they’re working on a sequel that isn’t a sequel. Put simply, Gearbox doesn’t have time right now to develop a new Borderlands.

"When you think of what Borderlands 3 should be, it should be massive," Pitchford said. "It should be bigger and better than Borderlands 2. It should carry forward the story. It’s probably crazy multi-platform, depending on timing. It would have to be a next-gen game and a current-gen game, if it was coming at any time in the reasonably near future.

We love Borderlands, and we know customers do too. So we will be doing more in Borderlands. But the thing that, when you think of what Borderlands 3 should be… No. We are not developing that right now. We don’t know what that is yet. We can imagine what it must achieve, but we don’t know what it is yet. I’m not going to fuck around with you like Valve does with Half-Life 3. Look. We know we want it and we know it should exist, but we don’t know what it is yet. But we are doing things in Borderlands that we’ll announce soon, that are good, and that I think people will be really excited about if you love the franchise.”

Sitting in a suite at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, Pitchford ticks off the games the studio is currently working on or involved with:

There’s Furious Four, there’s a new Brothers in Arms game, both Homeworld remasters and a new Homeworld title, and two still-to-be-announced games, based on entirely new IP.

That jab at a mythical Half-Life 3 cracked me up.

Gearbox celebrates new GOTY Edition with a dose of Wang Chung

The 80’s are alive and well in this new trailer for Gearbox’s Borderlands 2 GOTY Edition. Props have to be given to Gearbox for continually adding value and driving myself and other gamers back to the borderlands to shoot and loot hours away. In fact, I own the game on 3 platformers and with a  Vita version coming next year - well odds are I’ll own that too. Now the wait begins for Borderlands 3.

New screencaps for the upcoming Borderlands 2 DLC Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep. This will be the 4th DLC and final one to be included in the Season Pass, for those who have purchased it. They say it will be their final expansion for the game, but we’ll see. Judging by the screens, it looks amazing. Wizards, golems and dwarves… oh my. 

Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep is set for release on June 25th

Telltale’s Poker Night 2 just recently became available for PC, PS3 and XBOX 360. Has anyone else gotten to dabble into it yet?
 You play as a mute character, the other players like to tease and make fun of. The others? Brock Samson from The Venture Bros, Sam, from Sam & Max [Max is also there assisting Sam], Ash Williams from The Evil Dead and ClapTrap from the Borderlands series. The dealer is none other than GLaDOS from the Portal series, being her usual intimidating and insulting self. Mad Moxxi from the Borderlands series serves up drinks, but is ultimately silent the whole time. Buying the other characters in the game a drink, helps the likelihood of calling their bluffs or non-bluffs. Captain Reginald Van Winslow [Tales of Monkey Island] also makes an appearance as s casino chief.
That’s a lot of characters to name drop, huh? The game has been ridiculously humorous and engaging. The game allows you to have chances of winning items like in-game card decks, tabletop designs and chips. You also, depending on which platform you are playing on, have chances to win Borderlands 2 content, XBOX avatar items, PS3 themes and Team Fortress 2 items on Steam.
The game features two versions of poker, Texas Hold ‘Em and Omaha Hold ‘Em. Party Banter goes a long way, but some jokes are repeated and does lose charm eventually. 
An iOS version is also on it’s way, no date announced just yet.
Score: 8/10. Fun, simple and hilarious. Jokes eventually get stale.
