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. read

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... read
A satisfying ending
The Wolf Among Us has been one hell of a ride. Although Tellltale's The Walking Dead managed to craft a grimdark world worth seeing time and time again, Wolf has a more nuanced take, with larger-than-life fairy... read feature

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... read

Telltale Games has released a few screenshots for The Walking Dead's next installment, In Harm's Way.

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. read

The Wolf Among Us accolades trailer controls the crowd


Through brash violence
Feb 21
While The Wolf Among Us: Smoke and Mirrors may already be out, Telltale slapped together a trailer to brag about some of the nice things that some nice people said about it. There's nothing new here with regard to information about the continuation of the series, but for those that just want another chunk of The Wolf Among Us in their life, this should do for the time being. read
