Batman: A Telltale Games Series Review

Press X to Batman.

By now, we’re all aware of the joke: if you own an intellectual property of any import, Telltale will make a game based on it. Telltale adventure games are quickly becoming the Funko Pops of the video game world, but just like those big-headed collectibles, there is no denying their popularity. Enter Batman: The Telltale Series. Is this “just” another Telltale game? Well, yes, of course it is. That shouldn’t suggest that it isn’t worth your time, though.

The Walking Dead: Season Two - Episode 3: In Harm's Way Review

Defining the weak and the strong.

*This review contains minor spoilers*

It took about twenty five minutes into my play through of “In Harm’s Way” to realize that I hadn’t encountered any zombies yet. For that period of time, I was too caught up in the perilous situation that Clementine and the rest of the group found themselves in. This isn't a mark against it though; for me, it was a testament to its engrossing narrative. As each progressive event occurred, I became more and more engaged before being rewarded with a gruesome and gory finale. Episode 3 was another great chapter in Telltale’s Walking Dead series.

The Wolf Among Us - Episode 3: A Crooked Mile Review

He’ll huff, and He’ll puff…

*This review contains minor spoilers*

The latest episode in the “Fables”-inspired Wolf Among Us was an interesting reminder of the strengths of this mode of storytelling. While the previous episode was hindered by slower moments and a lot of buildup, this one ramped things up a bit by continuing the mystery and introducing new characters. By throwing a slew of tough and divergent choices my way, “A Crooked Mile” helped remind me why this series can be just as effective as The Walking Dead.

The Walking Dead: Season Two - Episode 2: A House Divided Review

Raising the stakes.

Telltale has chosen to make a statement with its second episode of Season Two. Through some great character moments and some really tough choices, I reached points of happiness and distress during “A House Divided”. Whereas Episode 1 was great on its own, Episode 2 reminded me why Telltale’s storytelling ability is to be reckoned with.

The Wolf Among Us - Episode 2: Smoke and Mirrors Review

The plot thickens.

Something about the atmosphere surrounding Telltale’s The Wolf Among Us has been a huge draw to me. The dark and twisted story surrounding some of history’s most endearing fairy tales makes for some really interesting narratives, because of our ingrown attachment to these characters. Episode 1, “Faith,” set a great precedent for episodes to come and Episode 2, “Smoke and Mirrors,” continues to build on that foundation.

The Walking Dead: Season Two - Episode 1: All That Remains Review

Clementine definitely needs a hug.

Season Two of Telltale’s the Walking Dead pulls no punches with its first episode. Within minutes, I was reminded that the universe of The Walking Dead is no joke. I was happy that the narrative is strong: an extremely gripping tale filled with a lot of memorable moments and even more memorable characters. The gameplay is also much improved, though technically, the experience leaves something to be desired on Xbox 360.

The Walking Dead: 400 Days Review

Dark Days Now, Darker Days Ahead.

Telltale’s The Walking Dead surprised many last year, including myself, by telling one of the most memorable stories in gaming. By pairing tense scenarios with incredible characters, the episodic game caught wildfire and became a smash success, winning multiple games of the year accolades.  To no surprise, the success of season one means that a season two is inevitable, but in the meantime, Telltale decided to tease us with a DLC that gives us insight on the future of the series.

The Walking Dead: The Game - Episode 4: Around Every Corner Review

Whelp… THAT just happened.

By the end of Episode 3 of Telltale’s “The Walking Dead”, I felt like I had been taken on an emotional rollercoaster. Many events happened that changed the scope of the situation for Lee, Clementine and the rest of the group, and I knew going into Episode 4 that it would continue down that path. Knowing also that Episode 4 is the lead up to their Episode 5 finale I hoped that the stakes would be raised in order to provide for a satisfying final chapter. Thankfully, I was not disappointed.

The Walking Dead: The Game - Episode 2: Starved for Help Review

It seems zombies aren’t the only enemies.

Set in the same universe as the graphic novel of the same name, this episodic tale follows the story of Lee Everet, an ex-convict with a troubled past and his interactions with the characters he meets. Though zombies are the primary antagonists of The Walking Dead series, one theme that the series drives home is the fact that everyday people can be just as, if not more dangerous than the undead. Episode 2: Starved For Help continues this theme.

The Walking Dead: The Game - Episode 1: A New Day Review

Telltale delivers an exciting and engaging take on the zombie apocalypse.

The Walking Dead has been taking the nation by storm with an extremely popular graphic novel and the hit television series. Naturally, a video game adaptation was considered, and many worried that the game would follow in the footsteps of other zombie survival games like Dead Island, or even Left 4 Dead.
