How Telltale handles loot and gore in Tales from the Borderlands

Tales from the Borderlands is shaping up to be a fascinating beast — something developer Telltale has proven itself capable of manufacturing en masse. Seeing a developer take up the reigns to another developer's franchise is bizarre, particularly when the developers are as disparate as Gearbox and Telltale; yet, the new series' first episode shows a tremendous amount of respect from the latter toward the former, particularly in how the series handles Borderlands' over-the-top violence and approach to unimaginable materialism.

Check out the Overview above to see a few scenes from the game's first episode, and for our discussion on how Telltale's signature style fits on top of the bombast of Pandora.
