Battleborn arrives this week, marking Gearbox's latest shooter and its tentative entry into the MOBA-like landscape. It's not a sequel to Borderlands, but in many ways, it might as well be! From the art style to the humor, this very well could have been called Borderlands Legends. So how much value is there in a new name versus an established one?
This week, the Chattycast talks about spiritual successors--games that aren't sequels, but also kinda are. Whether it's homage without the licensing rights or an attempt to break away from expectations, what drives developers to follow in another game's footprints so closely? What are your favorite spiritual successors, and which ones fell short of the original?
