The Humble Telltale Games Bundle has some pretty good stuff

Many people could be forgiven for mistakenly thinking that Telltale Games came into existence with The Walking Dead - Season 1. That's where Telltale hit its first real home run with episodic content of mainstream properties, and its the re...

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

Discs of Vaughn: Tales from the Borderlands gets a physical edition

In true Telltale style, games that were once digital-only will eventually be available as a tangible product. In the past, it has been the likes of The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us. Now, Tales from the Borderlands gets that ...

Someone get me this Life is Strange phone case

The last time I got a new phone, the Verizon rep asked me if I'd like to trade in my old phone for credit toward accessories -- specifically a case for it. I politely declined and she was shocked. "You mean you don't want a case for yo...

Minecraft: Story Mode wanders to Wii U this Thursday

Four episodes down, one to go. That's if, like Darren, you're playing Minecraft: Story Mode on something other than Wii U. For that port, you'll have to wait a few more days. The first episode, The Order of the Stone, releases on the Wii U ...

Hitman's release structure changed, now fully episodic

"What exactly is the new Hitman going to be?" That's a question that has been on players' minds for a long time now. Looking in from the outside, the development process has been confusing and unclear. Judging by the waffling of Square Enix...

 
Minecraft review
What a weird episode. After the high energy of The Last Place You Look, this one slows down the action shortly into it, and it doesn't really pick back up until the very end, which feels like the end of a season. But then, th...   read

A cartload of Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 4 screenshots

Vacation travel kept me from being able to get to the latest episode in Telltale's Minecraft: Story Mode right away. I just finished it, and as always, I had my finger on the screenshot button the whole way through. Maybe you can use t...

Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 4 will be home for Christmas

It's almost bizarre to think that the first episode of Minecraft: Story Mode was out less than two months ago, and here we are gearing up for the fourth in the series. Episode Four, A Block and a Hard Place releases on PC on December 22, wi...

Republique finally gets analog controls on PS4

Republique, a stealth game proud of its Metal Gear Solid 4 lineage, was Kickstarted in 2012. It hit iOS in 2013, and then proceeded at a pace of one port per year (2014, Android; 2015, PC) en route to three of five episodes having been rele...

Kentucky Route Zero Act 4 is 'almost done'

Hey, quick question. Do you pronounce the word 'route' as "R-out" or "root"? I'm in the latter camp, myself. Anyway, independent developers Cardboard Computer released another 140-character progress update on the much-anticipated fourt...

Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 3 screenshots, we got 'em

The third episode for Minecraft: Story Mode is out today, and it's actually not half bad. I think I took more screenshots this time around than in the first two episodes as a result. Going through these after the fact, it's obvious my favor...

Minecraft: Story Mode didn't impress me with its first two episodes. Aimed at young players and Minecraft super fans, its writing didn't have a whole lot going for it past its Saturday morning cartoon plot and series in-jokes...   read

First screens for Game of Thrones finale are non-canon (for me)

Life is Strange review
It's perfectly fitting that Life is Strange's final episode is subtitled Polarized. I can't think of a more apt word to describe my mindset right now. Life is Strange's conclusion left me satisfied, but not for the same reaso...   read
