Review: The Walking Dead: Around Every Corner photo
Review: The Walking Dead: Around Every Corner
by Fraser Brown

[Avoid the comments if you don't want to be drowning in spoilers]

It is always with no small amount of trepidation that I start each new episode of Telltale's The Walking Dead. Which character will I let down this time? What agonizing decision will I be forced into making? Will Kenny stop going on about boats?

The closing scene and strange revelation from Long Road Ahead left me with plenty of questions, and a great deal of fear over Clem's well-being. There was also the introduction of three more characters that I didn't quite trust yet. I wasn't sure what to expect from Around Every Corner, though I knew I'd feel terrible afterwards. I hate being right.

Review: Back to the Future: The Game, Episode 1 photo
Review: Back to the Future: The Game, Episode 1
by Conrad Zimmerman

If I were the owner of a beloved franchise of films and wanted to expand that franchise into videogames, there are very few companies whom I would trust to do a license justice. And if comedy is a major component of the formula that makes fans of my properties, the list narrows to just one: Telltale Games. That's because Telltale seems to care about the licenses for which they publish games beyond the scope of their own titles and, for my money, there's nobody funnier in the industry right now.

Back to the Future: The Game is, as of this first episode, a prime example of why I would place such trust in them. It is sharp, funny, and expertly designed, and it ranks among the best titles the studio has developed to date.
