  • Well, acording to Vasquez he does have a robot butt, soo... you know...

    Okay, do I just have a dirty mind or is Jack implying that Rhys' cybernetics extend to his genitals? O_O

  • Probably just poking fun at his extensive cybernetics.

    That moment when I realized I must be the only one idiot in the existence who didn't notice we can actually talk to Vaughn in Old Haven and not only to the girls. And it only took 8 times to notice the option. Like... goddamit.

  • So... I'm not the only one? xD That's a relief.

  • I bet it's the Atlas watch from the end of Episode 1 that he held onto. I don't think he's using the watch to sell out Rhys.

    Ooh, nice catch - it could add credence to those who think Vaughn is selling us out and is somehow reporting back to Helios (which

  • I still don't think Rhys getting clocked in the face with the shotgun at the beginning of the episode was coincidence.

    Hmm, interesting point. I didn't about it like that.

    "You no class, thieving Pandoran scum!" Yes! I noticed this as well. Maybe it's just because we haven't seen Rhys really lose h

  • There is an unusual amount of similarities to The Wolf Among Us.

    1. Crime boss: The Crooked Man ~ Vallory. Both are first mentioned in Episode 2, and than appear in Episode 3 (It be weird if Vallory somehow doesn't appear in Episode 3, so I'm assuming so). They also both have eye injuries.

    2. Her Goons: August, Vasquez by extent, like the Tweedles.

    3. Abnormally long waiting period between Episode 1 & 2

    4. "Faith" and "Zer0 Sum" were both written by Pierre Shorette, and are quite long for TellTale episodes.

    5. Dave Fennoy, Adam Harrington, Erin Yvette all voiced characters in both games. Fennoy was Bluebeard and Finch respectively, Harrington was Bigby, the Woodsman, and Kruger, and Erin voiced Sasha and Snow, both names begin with 'S' and are the 'main side' characters.

    6. The game titles are different from the usual TellTale format, Tales From The Borderlands and The Wolf Among Us, not Borderlands: A TellTale Game Series or Fables: A TellTale Game Series

    7. Both games' plots are the search for something (Vault, murder suspect)

    And those are all I think of right now.

  • Really? When? How? I know I was trying to but there was no option there.

  • When you flip the switch to the first power box by Vaughn, he goes to check on Loader Bot. Follow him over there, and that's when you'll have the option to speak to him about a couple of topics.

    Despite being on Rhys' left before he pushes the button, Sasha somehow transports to Rhys' right side when the intro song begins.

  • I was just watching that in fact and noticed that.

    What bothers me more is that Rhys fell out of the caravan and Sasha didn't.

  • What if Tales from the Borderlands is The Wolf Among Us Season 2 and we just didnt know it?

  • When you use terms as ambiguous as that, you could probably draw comparisons between Borderlands and Barney.

  • And which terms are 'ambiguous' to you exactly?

  • My first war Rhys when facing bandits. "so you died? U sure u want to stick with that"

    Then its Fiona while trying to close the door on August

    Some parts are repetitive, wished they continue on with different dialogs... To see how many times ttg expects players to die. :D

    I guess nobody died? Just me? Well then. I died as Fiona during the race and when the game over screen popped up, the interroga

  • Sasha's is just a random Maliwan, it's shooting electric rounds and the color scheme is not even close to the hellfire.

    also Felix got the Maggie(Legendary Jakobs Revolver from BL2) i think and Sashas Maliwan SMG could be the Hellfire (BL2)

  • Not very important and people have probably already noticed this but the settings screen when you pause the game will change color based on what character you are playing at the time (blue for Rhys, red for Fiona)

  • Yep, that's what I meant when I said it's new - it's definitely the Atlasio. I know they've pretty much been in life and death situations since Vaughn got it, but he's really got to set the thing up and try that calculator out!

    I bet it's the Atlas watch from the end of Episode 1 that he held onto. I don't think he's using the watch to sell out Rhys.

  • And you can bro out even more and thank him for being there for you etc!

    Loaderbot seems to have been fixed by someone else, when he comes back he has pink drawings on both the arm and leg that was ripped off of him (even if he was blown up).

  • Holy crap, what if Escape Plan Bravo is Loader Bot telling his story of what he did while separated from the group?! That'd be amazing...

  • Actually on the cosplay guide it says:
    Rhys got his cyberware to help him get ahead in the data-mining department. It was paid for by his quarterly bonus, which he received for arranging a lucrative (though controversial) Eridium mining deal.

  • When loader bot says War does not compute, what is it good for? I think thats a reference to S&M S1 E4 superballs musical number. But no one probably understood what I said because no one played S&M ;_;
