Tales from the Borderlands: First Screenshots Revealed by Telltale

12w ago - Telltale Games Producer Adam Sarasohn revealed the first screenshots to Tales from the Borderlands today with details below.

To quote: One of the first things people say when they hear that Telltale is working on a Borderlands game is: "wait... what?"

After all, how does a game series that's known for bazillions of guns morph into something like The Walking Dead or The Wolf Among Us? Why make a Borderlands game that's not a first person shooter?

Because, if you pause to take a breath between shooting everything in sight and stealing your buddies' loot in multiplayer, you'll know that Borderlands features some amazing characters and stories in a world that's rich in dark humor.

Handsome Jack, Claptrap, Tiny Tina, Angel, Moxxi, Zer0... it's a big list. We (Telltale) are all about compelling characters and stories, and we see an amazing opportunity to build on what Gearbox has created.

Gearbox's world is huge. The main Borderlands games and the DLC have only scratched the surface; they've built a world that rivals Star Wars in its richness. That sounds like crazy hyperbole, but the details, the characters, and the history are all there....
 

Sony Goes Hands-on With Borderlands 2 on PlayStation Vita

13w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill went hands-on with Borderlands 2 on PlayStation Vita today with details below.

To quote: The PlayStation social team recently had a chance to play a build of Borderlands 2 on PS Vita, and as the group's resident Borderlandophile, I immediately called dibs. What can I say about this game? It's Borderlands 2 on the Vita!

Controlling Borderlands 2 on PS Vita is a customizable affair: just go into options and remap to your heart's content. To change a control, tap the action or button (even the abilities assigned to the touch screen or rear touch pad) you want to change, then tap wherever you want the action to be.

By default, tapping different areas of Vita's rear touch pad yield a sprint or a melee attack, while a tap on the front screen tosses a grenade or activates your character-specific ability.

Shoulder buttons L and R still aim and shoot, though I did notice a useful new feature that takes advantage of PS Vita's built-in gyroscope: when you're aiming down the sight, moving PS Vita will adjust your aim.

Environments and character models are surprisingly detailed, and the game overall runs at a solid clip, generally hovering in the vicinity of 30 frames per second. Slicing dudes up as my main cyborg-man-alien-mystery-assassin-thing...
 

Destiny on PS4: First PlayStation 4 Hands-on Details Revealed

50°
13w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Sid Shuman went hands-on today with Destiny on PS4, revealing the first PlayStation 4 details below.

To quote: Having spend several hours with a pre-release version of Destiny on PS4, my sense is that Bungie's vision is no less than a complete rethink of how multiplayer shooters work.

Destiny is a deconstruction and reconstruction of a genre that has languished in sterile matchmaking lobbies for far too long.

If you don't have a particular agenda, Patrol is a good place to start. The Patrol structure is deliberately relaxed and freewheeling, with locations covering a large swath of exterior and interior spaces.

You can hunt for beacons to trigger side missions, or just blast enemies, collect loot, and explore at your own pace. Patrol missions seem to vary considerably, tasking you with everything from collecting uranium to interrupting mining operations and assassinating enemy leaders.

From time to time you'll cross paths with other Patrol players, sometimes in the form of dynamic "social events" that pit you against a bigger challenge.

It's always optional: Tag along with the new guy, or hop...
