    Interesting, but I personally feel that they got so close and just missed the perfect gaming franchise that I'd like to explore without shooting. I'll give you a clue: it's another 2K-owned FPS beginning with 'B'.

    --no thanks --i can play borderlands(on a VERY good game) --i dont need 'more story' from that universe --like --walking dead or game of thrones

    I, for one, think it's a great idea. It'd be a nice expansion of the lore and would allow for a ton of the series' humor to show. Especially considering the fact that Telltale is writing it. I still miss the writing from Sam and Max and Escape From Monkey Island.

    --borderlands --for me --its just more about the gameplay --and --we already have a 'great' borderlands game/franchise(one of the best games of the last few years) --which is unlike --walking dead and game of thrones --but --i understand Telltale has a lot of fans --and that is fine --but for me --it just seems they could have picked a better 'story to make into a game'(vs a game to make into a story game?? haha??)

    Good point in that last sentence. But at least it was unexpected. What franchise would you like to see get a Telltale treatment? One that you think deserves it.
  • tomasspipass - November 22, 2014 1:06 p.m.

    I would love to see the films ghost busters and goonies recieve this treatment. And.. rather oddly, the starcraft universe may be a good (or terrible) fit. Just because it would provide a different, more personal perspective on the starcaft universe. Having played wings of liberty, I enjoyed how they fleshed out the characters and cutscenes between missions.

    Not a bad idea. Though I'm pretty sure the Starcraft one wouldn't work out. My main reasoning is that Starcraft: Ghost is on hold indefinitely. I'm not into the RTS genre but I'd sure as hell play a TPS about Starcraft. It probably would've had more plot than the other games considering the genre and linear level design. If they couldn't come up with a good enough story that they had to put it on hold then I doubt they can confide in Telltale. I'd certainly like to see stuff like Ghostbusters and Goonies get Telltale'd. We can only dream.

    --game of thrones was a spot on pick(for a telltale version) --GOD i LOVE GOT --but another one? --hmmm --there arent a lot of great stories and movies that havent been made into games --but --scratches head... --i really cant think of anything --GOD I HATE hunger games --and besides twilight --hahaha --that made me laugh --theres is NOTHING i hate more than fucking twilight

    Well that made sense 'cos Game of Thrones is incredibly story, ongoing plot, and lore focused. But of course there aren't to many things to make into games (Warning: Rant Incoming). Today, movies aren't about a good story, or good writing, or good acting, or dramatic, funny, or witty dialogue. Now it's all about making the film look super fucking pretty. Nowadays I walk out of a theater and most of the time I say to myself "It looked pretty, with tons of flashy and big special effects. Such a shame that it was poorly written, had a cliche'd plot, and made me want to gouge my eyes out every time someone tried being "funny"". There are no good movie stories to remember anymore. Just the occasional comedy with good jokes and some good writing (al la Guardians of the Galaxy) or a drama that actually makes me feel something (Last time that happened was when I saw Gran Torino). It's all a shit show to get people going "Ooh, pretty!" without any context or memorability 'cos now people just want to look at shiny and pretty shit so they can call it art despite having not one good bit of dialogue and a story that couldn't be any more cliche'd without warping the space time continuum to the warp speed of boredom. The gaming equivalent of this are those people (usually PC owners) who think that graphics matter more than gameplay and that a good looking game means the game is good. For instance, if Watch Dogs had looked as good as promised then maybe people would've overlooked some flaws. Like the terribly predictable plot, cliche characters, and everything that is Aiden Pearce. The Hunger Games and Twilight are giant piles of cum-stained shit on the Earth's surface. Complete with a movie for every book and an extra film for the finale just so they can squeeze more money out of fucking stupid teenagers (it's saying stuff like this that keeps me from the rest of my demographic). Vampires are stupid. Post-Unexplained-Apocalypse societies with murderfests for no reason are stupid. Love triangles are fucking stupid. The plots of both are a serious case of "I love you but I'm an unattractive bitch who couldn't make a decision if my life depended on it. But I still love you and that other guy in the plot". You know what? As long as I'm on a roll. I want to punch a boy band in the face and grab an emo dude by his nose piercing and bash his head into the counter at the Hot Topic he was shopping at. Boy bands are so stupid. Marketed to 12 year old girls and old gay dudes. God, people are stupid. And every time I see I guy with any piercing or a girl with one other than on her ear I immediately think "We've got another confirmed kill for when we overpopulate and have to start killing shit". In short, boy bands suck, emo people suck, piercings suck, today's movies suck, Twilight sucks ass, Hunger Games sucks dick, Watch Dogs had a shit plot. Thank You! And good day to you sir!

    I, for one, am looking forward to this.

    I'm sure if the same team from previous games is doing this game, then Borderlands is going to come after the Walking Dead and the Wolf Among Us, along with Games of Thrones. Then this will probably going to push the aforementioned games further out...

    Cant wait

    I never thought Borderlands "lore" was interesting enough to create a Telltale-style off of it. But they're on fire right now. Let's hope this doesn't smother their flame.
  • Bansheebot - December 8, 2013 10:25 a.m.

    This is a pretty neat way to expand an IP's universe without bogging down the reason why people play the main series in the first place. I don't see why people are against it. If you like the Borderlands universe, then you'll like this. If yo ujust want to shoot stuff, go play the actual game, that's not what this is for.
  • mafyooz - December 8, 2013 12:31 a.m.

    Personally I would have been sold straight away if they had said they were making it as stories surrounding some of the better NPCs, like Patricia Tannis :)
  • g1rldraco7 - December 7, 2013 10:13 p.m.

    They better not screw up with this, I love Borderlands.
  • BaraChat - December 7, 2013 8:51 p.m.

    First off, I have to say I absolutely love the Borderlands franchise, it's probably my 3rd-favorite new franchise of this generation after Bioshock and Portal. And I thought Telltale's The Walking Dead was the best game of 2012. That being said, I don't know how to feel about this idea of a Telltale's Borderlands game. It could and will probably work, but I can't help being a bit skeptical.
  • Shigeruken - December 7, 2013 7:30 p.m.

    No enthusiasm for this, but I'll probably get around to it if I ever finish Borderlands 2
