Having a writer that wasn't Burch for starters.

It actually felt like the game was completely planned out from the beginning with regards to both story and budget. No dips that felt like they ran out of money and no asspulls that felt like they just made shit up on the spot.
>>
>>315319568
A whole lot.

Seriously I know /v/ goes on about memelands but I actually really liked Tales. Telltale does some damn good work.

The relationship between Rhys and Fiona is one of the most enjoyable ones I've seen in fiction to date. They're like brother and sister and it just works, it's so fluid. They're both stupid children but it still feels like they grow and learn, even if they're still stupid children who happen to have learned and grown.

Also, the credit sequences.

God DAMN, the opening credit sequences.

I might end up replaying this just for it's stunning intro sequences.

If there's any fault at all I can find with this game, it was that Fiona's arc felt a bit lackluster next to the Rhys/Jack stuff.

Full vault hunter squad, baby. I picked Felix because they talked about how good he was at plans, but getting a shitload of money for the vault hunter was fine I guess.

Also, I still don't understand how Felix made the switch.
>"When you were knocked out, I disarmed the bomb, switched the money out, and then rearmed the bomb."

Is that why I had to warn him twice before he threw the bomb away from him?

Everything. You can do a shoryuken in a big dumb robot.

Nope, he just gives you money so you can afford hiring Claptrap.

No, he just gives you $10 million and decides he's sitting the fight out. Then you can get thenmystery vault humter, who is none other than Claptrap.

True. GoT is just wasted potential, really. The lore could fit the Telltale-style game perfectly, but the game is mediocre at best.

If you pick Felix, you go to the armoire that fell out the back of the caravan in episode 2 and wait for him. You find out he just left an ECHO device modified for real-time communication where he tells you that he wasn't really backstabbing you, it was just part of a longer con that ended up going to hell.

He switched out the money and leaves it for Fiona and Sasha, but didn't expect the armoire to get blown out the back. He made it look like he dicked them over so they would honestly have no idea where the money was under questioning and blame it all on him so that Vallory's goons would chase him around before Fiona and Sasha could go back and get the money when he would tell them. He took a million, but leaves the other 9.

He doesn't join you in the final fight, but you have enough money to hire the mystery vault hunter.

Best use of the Telltale tool
Choices fucking matter
Plot is excellent
Characters are likeable and well written
Excellent sense of humor
Fantastic OST and musical choices
fantastic character development
fun gameplay ideas
looks great
best use of the potentially great Borderlands universe

TL:DR
It's basically the best use of the Borderlands i.p and the best Telltale game.

GoT is rushed as fugg and looks terrible.

Problem is that GOT is still very popular.

Telltale only does good on franchises that have already hit their stride and peaked.

I still don't like the character designs

that said the game had some great moments and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
If you're turned off by it being Borderlands you have to consider that Burch didn't write this.
He wrote 3 scenes in total I think and you can clearly tell when he did, so its at least funny once you come across those scenes.

This really bothered me for some reason. I haven't played the Pre-Sequel, but I guess that game is Athena telling the BL1 vault hunters what happened on Elpsis, but then Lilith wants to straight up execute Athena for some reason. Whatever happens, I guess it's just weird that in Tales, Athena never even makes a passing mention what happened to her or how she got away.
>>
>>315319568
I was really disappointed with a few of the turnouts. Like, if you chose to keep Jack a secret, you really bonded with the character. And all of a sudden he wants to turn you into another clone? Fuck prechosen paths.
>>
>>315330108
Major spoilers for the Pre-Sequel: After telling her story, Lilith goes niggertits crazy and tries to excecute her before an Eridian stops her and claims that they'll need all the Vault Hunters possible alive for the vagueness that's coming. She was probably let go- her story is told in a single sitting, so she was probably let go not long after her kidnapping.
>>315330136
if you didn't see that coming, you don't understand Jack at all.

Don't worry, you'll get him as an NPC with the other vault hunters in the inevitable BL3.

He would have been far more entertaining than Claptrap though. A hulking 7 foot tall Psycho walking in on that debriefing would have been gold.

She told the story 3 times

One originally
Again (NG+) for Tina and Brick
Once more for Axton and Gaige

I was trying to think of the words to describe it, and you just said it. I'm glad that they didn't shoe-horn a romance between them. I think you have to actually go out of your way to pair them together.
>>315331551
The latter.
>>
>>315331551

You would probably be ok with not playing the main series games. There are characters from and references to events in the other games, but they do a good job of filling in the major plot points that come up in tales.
>>
>>315331646
can you actually ship them together? I thought Sasha was the only option for Rhys.

Do I need to play other Borderlands game(s) to enjoy/understand this?

>>315331646

I never understood the whole shipping Rhys and Fiona thing. Their relationship definitely felt more fraternal than romantic.

>>315331857

You can, but all the major VAs think Rhysha is the best.
>>
>>315331857
Well, I've heard you can, but I'm not 100% sure.

>>315331964
No, and it's not even written by Burch for the most part, so it's infinitely better.
>>
>>315332112

you tell Rhys to stay the hell away from Sasha, Rhys can then pick "I like someone else." that heavily implies its Fiona.
>>
>>315331964
Absolutely not.
>>
>>315332112

You basically have to not ship Rhys and Sasha through the entire playthrough, and there's one piece of really non-committal dialog at the end of episode 5 that leaves the option of Rhys and Fiona open but ambiguous.

2 & 5 definitely had the best intro's but I feel like 3 & 4 don't get nearly enough love. They all pretty much nailed it in terms of setting the appropriate tone for their respective episodes.

I'm actually kind of sad Tales didn't get a hold of the other BL2 characters to give personality to. Zer0, for how bare he was, managed to be cool. I wish they had taken some of the other ones and given them canon personalities so I wouldn't have to deal with Gearbox characterization.

This version of Scooter was way better than BL2's. In BL2 he had really odd and jarring mean streaks that came out in quests and stuff where he was basically paying Vault Hunters to kill the shit out of people for really petty things.

He did some of the Jack conversations in ep 5 as well, specifically the opening...which was kind of weak but not that bad.

Its bad.

The beggining is worse than BL2 beggining at that ice map thing.
Also SJW references everywhere in the game writings, making it an annoyance to read thur the dialogues
>>
>>315336803
It's alright. The game uses fetch quests way too heavily. Run from one side of the map to the other, grab item, run back, finish mission. This then unlocks the next mission on the other side of the map, so get running. Writing is better than 2, but that's not saying much. At the end of the day it's just more of the same, so if you liked 1&2 you know what you're getting into, now its just got bad accents and an oxygen mechanic.
>>
>>315337309
>The game uses fetch quests way too heavily.

Sounds like BL1
>>
I realize that I sound like happy merchant, but it felt sort of weird that most of the characters were normal looking white people?

I mean, most characters were white in the original borderlands games, but they all had a distinctive style, swarmy dwarf, tatooed lady, dusty edgelord, various types of odd women, etc

all these characters just felt like normal boring people

I wonder if that's why their interactions were good? Or was that incidental
>>
>>315336803
the reason I won't play it again is that I can't ignore that they used only local voice actors, so everyone sounds like a lower class kiwi

Incidental. They could be unique individuals without having to have visual gimmicks.

They're more abstract character types, because unlike most of the PCs of the other games, they actually have personalities.

Weakest is a tossup between 2 and 3. I really liked the biodome, but it was a pretty damn slow area. And then the sudden change in pace in the same chapter was a bit... uncalled for.

TotBL actually managed to get me invested in some of the characters, but I guess I'm probably looking in the wrong place if I want characters to be fleshed out more.

I also kept seeing Brock Samson whenever this guy spoke. I don't think the voice actor can voice anything else without that happening.
>>
>>315338183
no as I mentioned the talent trees were pretty bland

claptrap was just teamplay chaos, the trollening
cap america is like any melee class, if you don't like that playstyle it's just not going to work for you
nisha felt very similar to gaige, but you couldn't use her cheese build against actually powerful enemies
didn't play roland 3.0 but I assume he's the same deal, good at staying alive but not damage?

I gave up long before jack and history revision were released
>>
>>315337848
Them being normal-ish people was a large reason I could enjoy it. I've never felt any tension or stakes in the other Borderlands games because your characters are immortal psychopaths that laugh gleefully as people burst into flame and gore clouds around them. Having a normal-ish guy look terrified and anxious about even being near the conventional Borderlands psycho, not to mention writing a motorcycle in some twisted motor rally, means that there's actually tension surrounding that character surviving or not or how he'll react to what's going on.

Athena and Springs for the lesbian banter which was pretty good. August more so because he was pretty involved in the story in general and felt like he kinda deserved a spot. Too bad he didn't do much, although his street boxing and MUDAMUDAMUDA were pretty cool.

Bro. I did kind of regret not taking August. Fucking Claptrap.

>Was nice to Sasha once

I was led to believe I could choose Fiona, I even thought I was getting Sasha and August together but apparently not. I also saved my money the whole game for no reason too.

But yeah I like Telltale, and I hate borderlands, and this is still the best game they've made.

Picked the same team for pretty much the same reasons. Athena and Springs were no contest for me, and as much of a prick as August was in the earlier episodes I figured he deserved his revenge.

I was sold on the game when you found out about Pollux and that he was in stasis. But I pretty much orgasmed at that intro.

>but the brother sister dynamic just felt so much better
Especially at the very end, where they're opening the McGuffin together. It reminded me of the Stans in Gravity Falls.

Also, when they're running to the Vault and Fiona says "We're gonna go together, like a family"

I thought it was going to be Felix or something. I still hadn't come to think of Loaderbot as an actual character yet. It actually surprised me because I thought he died on Helios. Vaughn was someone else I suspected since he just disappeared with Cassius after the biodome, but when the bandit guy rolled up, it was pretty obvious that he was Vaughn.

So, uh, how did Kroger get off Helios?
>>
>>315347148
The station crashed with a surprising amount of its structure intact, it's not unreasonable to assume some people managed to survive somehow given that.

Or you could just reason he found another other escape pod somewhere else, because some did still launch after Rhys got out.

>>315347148
Uh, he found an escape pod, I guess? How did Loader Bot survive? But, yeah, I found that odd, too. I was actually waiting for Rhys to comment on it.

I probably wouldn't have if he hadn't goaded me on by implying he had brutally murdered a struggling Sasha, but I was pretty sick of his shit at that point.

>>315323376

So that's why Jack was shit in 4 and 5
>>
>>315347542

I had a good playthrough and an "evil" playthrough, so on the second one, I did have her murder him. Didn't make any difference in game, but personally, it felt meaner when I had her taunt Kroger about it.
>>
Fiona didn't get slammed

So nothing went right
>>
>>315347542
Here.
Pretty tired of his shit, but I figured it wasn't the time to be a dick and letting him bleed out would've been worse.
Also, I already shot him with two of the three elements, figured I might as well hit him with the last one to make it complete.

Motherfucker I'm a moralfag and I had her murder him. He very clearly showed throughout the course of the story that his continued choices led to more and more deaths

>Choices actually mattered a bit

It's a Telltale game. I really doubt that.
>>
>>315350415
I don't think people tend to really consider what it means when your choices actually matter a lot.

Generally that tends to mean there's a wrong and a right way to play and that usually you're picking the wrong way.

I'm fine with my choices affecting the flavor of the story without dramatically fucking up the outcome.
>>
>>315350559
Flavors of the story in past Telltale games have been completely negligible.

>SAVE PERSON A OR SAVE PERSON B

>Choose save person A
>Person B survives anyway
>Person A dies immediately afterwards or at the very start of the next episode

>Choose save person B
>Person A dies and person B is mad at you
>>
>>315350415
They kinda do in the end.
Who you can recruit in the last episode depends on some of the choices you made previously.
>>
>>315350559

Exactly. I feel like a lot of people expect Telltale games to be on par with the old "choose your own adventure" books or something like that. The problem is, by the time you hit episode 5 they'd have to write 20 different endings for each possible storyline. It's just not logistically feasible.
>>
>>315351805
Not to mention most of those stupid CYOA books had like 50% of the choices just lead to "Oh you got eaten by a yeti" or some shit. They were just choices on how you wanted to die.
>>

can somebody explain the "memelands" to me?
>>
>>315352725
Same old /v/ rhetoric. The main Borderlands games have a bunch of dumb jokes so people who don't quite get what the word means call them memes, and by association the game becomes a "meme" game, thus "Memelands", because /v/ is ever so clever.
>>
>>315350415
I was actually pretty surprised with how much the playthroughs were different depending on a couple of key choices:

>Go to Hollow Point or Old Haven
>Trust Jack or Fiona
>Actually be buddy buddy with Jack or keep him at arm's length and tell him you don't want his help

And then the game lets you hand pick a crew to fight the big bad guy thing with their availability dependent on your choices throughout the game.

And look what ended up happening.

There was a large shift in narrative style between Borderlands 1 and 2. Borderlands was a new IP which saw way more success than the creators probably expected. This meant they had to expand on the setting quite a bit for the sequel. In particular they threw in a lot of pop culture references which on top of somewhat shoddy writing made a lot of people on /v/ hate it. On top of that one of the main writers, Anthony Burch, suffered a very public meltdown on social media and became a generally shitty person who was easy to make fun of.

Fiona is a top fucking tier waifu. I hope she comes back in BL3 or even a season 2 for Tales as a grizzled vault hunter.

I would really like a story that starts with a character being affected by the opening of a vault. The story starting with a vault being opened instead of ending with it like every other game.

Episode 2 has so many great moments, but I definitely loved this one on my second playthrough (I was a bro my first playthrough and told Vaughn everything).

I can't remember where, but I read a source stating that the writers had said that Fiona and Sasha were the Pandoran equivalent of Mediterraneans.

I know the humor or the games is very superficial, but the cool thing about Borderlands is that every character is super morally ambiguous. Everyone, including the character you play, is an asshole that enjoys killing people. It's just a matter of who it is you're murdering and for what reason that makes you better than the other person.
