When news first broke about Gearbox and Telltale games' Tales from the Borderlands, I was understandably skeptical. Sure, the two have worked before on the hilarious-yet-short Poker Night 2, but the feeling just couldn't be shaken that these were just two great developers best experienced at different paces. How do you translate Borderland's trigger happy, high-adrenaline ridiculousness into a genre that's primarily focused on detail-laden deliberation? After watching this first trailer, suddenly all my doubts were evaporated in a fit of starry-eyed laughter and anticipation.
