Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands breathes weird, new life into the stale franchise



By good timing alone, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, the Borderlands spinoff set in an off-the-rails, fourth-wall-crumbling D&D-style campaign, has bullseyed two pop culture trends in one shot. In any case, I never felt like I’d chosen either the weakest, or the safest path, to get through Tiny Tina’s zany and almost incoherent narrative. I can linger on any part of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands because in the end, the story is about three friends killing time while their spacecraft awaits repairs. Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands thus breathes new, weird life into a franchise that had become terminally rote, and reminds me why guns-meets-Diablo was the perfect obsession so many years ago. Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands will be released on March 25 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
