Zero Time Dilemma photo
Zero Time Dilemma

Zero Time Dilemma takes text skipping to a new level

I can still recall the pain of playing through various New Game+ modes in old games where you couldn't skip cutscenes. It was excruciating, having to sit through 10-15 minute expositions constantly, but newer games have gotten better about ...

 
Purrview from CATS East
When I wrote about a non-hipster walking simulator for Cliffy B just before PAX, I had no idea there was already a game that was basically that, only it's 2D and features colorful animals.  Night in the Woods i...   read

King's Quest review
Despite its lengthy release schedule (the first episode dropped last July!), King's Quest has wormed its way into my heart. Sure, the second chapter was a slight drop-off from the first, but it still managed to maintain the p...   read

Borderlands on disc

Tales from the Borderlands now available on disc

I can't stress enough how good Tales from the Borderlands is. It made the number one spot on my personal game of the year list for 2015. It's probably the most densely comedic Borderlands game and one of the most sharply written Telltale ga...

 
Michonne
To say that Telltale's The Walking Dead: Michonne has been uneven would be an understatement. Although the lead performance was enough to draw me in the first time, the second episode dragged, and struggled to introduce any compelling new characters. Much like the in-game narrative, the burden was left on the shoulders of Michonne. That couldn't be more true of the finale.   read

Albino Lullaby
Too many horror games and movies these days rely on jump scares as their only real source of fear. While there is nothing inherently wrong with that, they really are cheap and easy. Recently there has been a resurgence in med...   read

Walking Dead: Michonne

The last episode of The Walking Dead: Michonne is out next week

Telltale's The Walking Dead: Michonne will conclude next week on April 26, with the episode "What We Deserve." It's hitting every platform on that date, and given the studio's recent track record, we can probably expect a retail releas...

I'm liking the new, hotter Watson in Sherlock Homes: The Devil's Daughter

It's not just me, right? I don't know what happened, or where in the timeline the latest Sherlock Holmes game takes place, but whatever it is has definitely done some good things for Sherlock's partner in crime. Watson is only one of ...

As the old saying goes, absence makes the heart grow fonder. That might have happened with Minecraft: Story Mode. The first four episodes of the season released within two and a half months of one another, and I had been pret...   read

One year later, the Sons of Anarchy game may have been a scam

Back in August 2015 it came to my attention that the episodic Sons of Anarchy game, released six months prior, had virtually no updates regarding a follow-up -- despite the fact that a Season Pass was sold upfront. The developer and publish...

New PS4 update for The Witness might help with motion sickness

It sure does feel odd to boot up The Witness again. I had intended to continue solving optional puzzles after earning the platinum Trophy, albeit at a much laxer, much more sane pace, but ended up stopping completely. Why go back now? A Pla...

D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die is worth five bucks on Steam

The first (and sadly still only) season of D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die is down to $4.94 for 48 hours on Steam. The Deluxe Edition bundle is also discounted by 67 percent, to $9.89, but don't feel like you need all of those extra costumes and ...

Unofficial Kickstarter for Life is Strange sequel canceled in record time

Well, there's that. Much like the fabled Star Wars fangame, another one bites the dust. While most unofficial projects are usually worked on in secret and then torrented into the world (even if only in demo form), some go public immediately...

Curiosity drives us forward in The Gallery: Call of the Starseed

The Oculus Rift launched this week, but the virtual reality train is just getting started as the Valve-backed HTC Vive headset launches on April 5, 2016. Releasing alongside the Vive is The Gallery: Call of the Starseed, an episodic, built...

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter makes a great case for VR when it's not disorienting

I have yet to finish The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, which I picked up during its launch back in 2014, so I figured hopping into the brand new Oculus Rift version would be a good way to accomplish that. Barring some discomfort, it managed to...

 
Walking Dead review
Telltale was never going to top the Walking Dead series proper with their three part Michonne series. It was always presented as a sort of tertiary tale, a gaiden that followed in the footsteps of the star, partially tied to the comic series. The first episode reflected that spinoff mentality. So does the second, for that matter, to a greater extent.   read

Review: Adr1ft

I'm of two minds when it comes to modern walking simulators. On one hand, they satisfy the craving I have for obtuse, old-school adventure games, a genre that basically does not exist anymore. On the other, they tend to be a ...   read

Yep, Chase sure does look like a new Hotel Dusk

I embraced the aphorism "don't judge a book by its cover" as a child. After squandering the contents of my piggy bank on a dreadful fantasy novel that endeared itself to me with some captivating artwork, only to disappoint, I learned to be ...

Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 5 releasing March 29

After playing the previous episode, A Block and a Hard Place, I said it felt like the true end of the season. Not only did it wrap up the main story arc, it also ended Telltale's string of quick releases for the series. The shortest wait be...

Telltale's The Walking Dead: Season 3 is due out this year

Telltale Games is picking its episodic adventure series The Walking Dead back up for a third season this year. We knew it was coming, but not necessarily so soon. Better hang onto that save data. Speaking to Mashable, Telltale CEO Kevin Bru...

Sierra announces King's Quest Chapter 3: Once Upon a Climb
