Life is punctual

An adventure game you can set your watch to
Jan 27
Life is Strange comes out this week (January 30) on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC ($5 per episode, $20 for a season pass). Recent episodic adventure games have seen unclear stretches of empty time ...
Life is Sexist

Publishers wanted to change Life is Strange leads into men


Square the only one 'that didn't want to change a single thing'
Jan 11
In the first developer diary for the upcoming Life is Strange, Dontnod (Remember Me) creative director Jean-Maxime Moris explained how difficult it was shopping the game to publishers, most of whom urged the company to turns...
Telltale

Telltale Games Collection wraps up five games for $55


Considerably more expensive for non-Xbox Live Gold subscribers
Dec 23
Unwrapping gifts has a special feeling about it that almost everyone can identify with. Digital presents aren't as satisfying in that regard, but sometimes a package comes along that's enticing enough to warrant buying yourse...
Life is Strange

Life is Strange releases its pent up teenage angst next month


Just the first episode, though
Dec 17
The introductory episode of Dontnod's Life is Strange is scheduled to bend time and break the rules on January 30. The indie-tinged five-part adventure game about all the mixed emotions of being a teen is coming to PC, ...
Borderlands

Catch a jaunty tune (and an elbow to the grill) in this Tales from the Borderlands trailer


Episode One: Zer0 Sum
Nov 25
Telltale titles and Borderlands are almost polar opposites. One has you constantly making tough, game-altering decisions. The other only asks that you decide between shooting everything and dying. (Hint: you defini...

GoT

Telltale's Game of Thrones is all about the trees, man


Five playable lumberjacks
Nov 11
Telltale's outlined the plot for the SIX episodes of its take on Game of Thrones, and wow, it sounds like the best lumberjack simulator in years. There are a whole bunch of trees (motherf*cking IRONTREES), and you have to dec...
D4 sale

D4 is on sale, so everyone should buy it immediately


Deez discounts do discontinue
Nov 04
Hey, you! Yeah, the person that owns an Xbox One and is staring confusedly at the guy yelling at them over the Internet! I'm talkin' to you! D4's on sale for Xbox Live Gold members, so you should probably go pick that up righ...
Dreadnought

This Dreadnought video shows you how to actually play Dreadnought


There's very much a right and wrong way
Oct 16
As I learned at PAX Prime, actually knowing how to play Dreadnought is half the battle. It's an enamoring idea to rush in with the quickest ship and fire until either you or your target is dead. If that's your approach,...
The Walking Dead

Both seasons of The Walking Dead shamble to PS4, Xbox One this month


That's a lot of heartstring pullin'
Oct 02
Telltale's confirmed that seasons one and two of its hit adaption of The Walking Dead will be making their way to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later in October. Season one will get a physical release on October 14. A week...
Dreamfall Chapters

The first part of Dreamfall Chapters arrives on October 21


This is the first of five upcoming chapters
Sep 30
We've known for a while that the upcoming Dreamfall game from Red Thread would be split into five chapters but now we have word that the first one, entitled Reborn, will arrive on October 21. I'm hoping that the studio will ...
Extrasolar

Extrasolar Season 2 is being funded through Kickstarter


Season 1 still available for free
Sep 09
I do not envy Lazy 8 Studios with the balancing act it has trying to market Extrasolar. By revealing too little, only a relatively small demographic will ever try out the exoplanet rover simulator. By revealing too much, a t...

Walking Dead S2

This is it: Final trailer for The Walking Dead Season 2


Also, staggered release dates
Aug 21
This will spoil season 2 for you up to this point. If you're not caught up (like me), don't watch. Otherwise, get excited about "No Way Back," the final episode in season 2 of The Walking Dead. Can it live up to the first season's strong finale? "No Way Back" hits PC/Mac and North American PS3/Vita on August 26; Xbox 360 and European PS3/Vita on August 27; iOS on August 28. 
Dreamfall Chapters

Dreamfall Chapters is now a timed PS4 'console exclusive'


It's still hitting PC first
Aug 15
Dreamfall Chapters is the latest project to arrive in, well, a chapter-like format. It will consist of five episodes, which will launch on the PC first later this year. But developer Red Thread Games has some news in reg...
Remember Me

Remember Me dev teams with Square Enix for Life is Strange


Life is beautiful, too
Aug 11
Remember Me developer Dontnod has announced the game it is working on in conjunction with Square Enix, Life is Strange. The episodic, hand-drawn adventure game is coming to PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.  It ...
The Wolf Among Us

The Wolf Among Us isn't crying wolf with this accolades trailer


Look at all the nice things people said
Jul 25
The first season of The Wolf Among Us may be over, but there's still one more trailer to indulge in. The quotes included in Episode 5's accolades trailer are technically only about Cry Wolf, but they seem pretty universal as far as the season goes. Tour de force? Genuinely moving? One hell of a ride? Yeah, that sounds like The Wolf Among Us in a nutshell.
The Wolf Among Us

There will be a retail version among us of The Wolf Among Us


PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One
Jul 15
You'd be pretty hard-pressed to find many that don't like Telltale Games' The Wolf Among Us. In fact, one of the most often expressed complaints about it is that people don't like having to wait for the next episode to releas...


Acaratus

Acaratus brings robots onto the tactical RPG battlefield


Who needs tactics when you have robots with swords?
Jun 03
There is something about turn-based battles on a square grid that always seems to captivate me. Taking that idea out of the generic fantasy setting garners bonus points for me too. Granted, Acaratus is described to take plac...
Lakeview Cabin Collection

Lakeview Cabin Collection channels cheesy horror movies


'In a world where horror videogames are usually treated seriously...'
May 30
There is something charming about bad horror movies. From the overused tropes to the laughable gore effects, they are hard to take seriously. Lakeview Cabin seems to get that, and is celebrating the stupidity with its episod...

The Wolf Among Us

Episode 4 of The Wolf Among Us will fix this starting May 27


I swear
May 22
You know the drill by now -- here's a trailer for the new episode of The Wolf Among Us, accompanied by a release date. Episode 4: In Sheep's Clothing launches on May 27 for PC and Mac, and on PS3. Xbox 360 gets it ...
The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead gets In Harm's Way next week


Prepare your heart strings
May 09
Oh, Clementine. This world's been cruelly unfair to you. The innocence of youth is lost on you, as you're constantly in harm's way, like some sort of adorable little magnet for it. It's probably not coincidental that the nex...
Moon Chronicles 3DS

Moon Chronicles lands on Nintendo 3DS eShop next week


One small step for man, one dark secret for all mankind
May 09
Nintendo 3DS first-person shooter Moon Chronicles is blasting off on May 15, Renegade Kid announced today. The first four chapters of the remastered Nintendo DS game will be available to download starting next week ...
Kentucky Route Zero

Kentucky Route Zero: Act III is out now


Tricksy stealth releases
May 06
We've had to wait a little while, but Kentucky Route Zero: Act III is finally available for download. It's been close to a year since the second part of the five act story launched, notwithstanding the release of the muc...

New screens to tease next episode of The Walking Dead


Third episode of second season to launch soon
May 02
Telltale Games has released a few screenshots for The Walking Dead's next installment, In Harm's Way. Clementine and the other survivors from the cabin have gotten themselves into a bit of a pickle, it would seem. We still don't have a release date for In Harm's Way, but Telltale assures that it's coming in the very near future.
The Wolf Among Us

The Wolf Among Us episode 3 accolades trailer is a little cranky


After all, it's been a long f*cking day
Apr 24
These The Wolf Among Us accolades trailers that Telltale likes to put out after each episode might not amount to a whole lot more than horn-tooting, but they still feel weighty and worth a watch. The music and truncated punchy lines make the mood feel so perfect. I'm half-tempted to make my own accolades trailer for these accolades trailers. They deserve it.
Last Life

Last Life is a sci-fi, murder-mystery adventure game set on Mars


Those are some of my favourite words!
Apr 10
It's no secret that I've been loving the adventure games that have been finding life via Kickstarter and Last Life is no different. Described by developer Sam Farmer, this is an episodic "sci-fi noir adventure game in which ...

The Wolf Among Us

The Wolf Among Us episode 3 trailer enjoys it when things go wrong


And other badass phrases
Apr 01
The title of episode 3 of The Wolf Among Us has been revealed to be A Crooked Mile, and this trailer gives a glint of information as to what it's about. The video's all like "BAM! Bloody bed! BOOM! Broken mirror! Uh-oh!...
