my favorite telltale jawn. catch a riiiiiiide

There's no denying that the art style of Tales from the Borderlands is impressive. The rich, cel-shaded visuals are colorful and eye-catching, and the attention to detail is impressive. However, the game's art style is also its biggest weakness.

The over-the-top, cartoonish visuals are obnoxious and grating, and they low-key give me a headache. The characters are all incredibly ugly, and their movements are so stilted and awkward. It's all just so jarring and off-putting.

But more than that, the art style is a symptom of the game's overall philosophy: it's all about style over substance. The game is full of cheap gags and cheap laughs, and it's all just so cutesy and twee. It's obnoxious and cringe-worthy, and it's not remotely funny.

And that's a shame, because the game has a lot of potential. The writing is sharp and clever, and the voice acting is superb. The game could have been a smart, insightful comedy, but instead it's just a cheap, juvenile cash-grab. It's a real shame.

Telltale's absolute best game. Incredibly captivating story and A+ character writing all around.

I'm ashamed how into Handsome Jack I am in this game.....

okay story. how they completely abandoned sasha and fiona in bl3 ill never understand.

This was TTG's best game by a fucking lot. I sometimes have this full sensory flashback to the Trust Jack ending of Episode 2, which is a stunning confluence of cinematography, music, and writing. It's maybe my favorite Single Moment in a video game. And the entire story is amazing! I honestly still cannot believe what TTG did with Rhys in this game. The build of his deal with the devil is amazing. I am begging everyone who plays this game to try the Trust Jack plotline, it goes some fucking INCREDIBLE places. Look. This game made me cry a few times.
