Tales from the Borderlands at Christian Entertainment Reviews

Not all of my video game articles will be at Christian Entertainment Reviews, but when they are, I still want you to know about them here.  Over Christmas break my son and I decided to get the new episodic video game series from Telltale Games, Tales from the Borderlands.  Here’s my review of it – thanks for reading!

Most Christians may not be all that familiar with the Borderlands series of games, considering that they’re quite violent and gory. I’m not here to review or warn you away from the regular Borderlands video games, but I can tell you about the first episode of the new interactive story series, Tales from the Borderlands. This first installment of the five-part series came out on November 25, 2014, with the next episode (“Atlas Mugged”) planned for release during the last week of January 2015.

. . .  Episodic games are sort-of like a cross between reading a book or watching a show and playing a role playing game (RPG). The player is given choices in dialogue as the story moves along, and these choices define which branch of the storyline tree the player continues to move along. The storyline tree makes for built-in replayabliity.
