I figured I’d share this one with you all because it just was released today and I am a huge fan of the game/episodes so far.
It is worth pointing out that it is highly recommended that you give the second episode an additional play through, like that you can trust the other character at the end (as opposed to whoever you trusted in your first play through) as each one will give you a different experience in the third episode.
Being as how I trusted Handsome Jack the first go round this means that when I finish episode three over the weekend I’ll have to trust Fiona next time around. That means that likely come Monday I will have a write-up on the game with how it plays out based on both choices.
As I’ve previously stated, you do not at all need to be familiar with anything from the Borderlands series of games to enjoy this game. I for one didn’t and am immensely enjoying Tales from the Borderlands. The game is downright hysterical at times and the story is pretty damn good. If they made an animated movie out of the episodes (and honestly there are times where it feels more like you’re participating in a movie than a game) I’d watch the hell out of it.
The season pass is still going for $14.99, which saves you $5 for buying all the episodes outright (as opposed to paying $19.99 collectively if you buy them separately), and it’s well worth the price. Or at least that’s the price if you buy it for your Android device, not so sure about elsewhere and for other devices.
If you’ve been waiting to give this game a go (so you wouldn’t have to wait for the final few episodes to come out) then now is the perfect time to jump in and get them. Per my previous play through of the first two episodes I’ve gotten roughly three to four hours of entertainment from the game. I figure I’ll get another hour and a half’s worth from this episode, making this a really good bang for your buck. And that’s on top of how fun it is!
Like I said earlier though, expect a write-up come Monday. Maybe Tuesday. I’m lazy and love procrastinating, so it’s really anyone’s guess as to when I’ll get around to putting pen to paper so to speak on my thoughts of the latest episode.
