Telltale offers Wolf Among Us 360 Season Pass fix

Telltale just released the second episode of The Wolf Among Us, and it's pretty great overall. But some Xbox 360 fans have been reporting issues in regards to the Season Pass -- specifically, the game prompts them to buy the ...

Review: The Wolf Among Us: Smoke and Mirrors
by Chris Carter

Bigby the Wolf has the weight of the world on his shoulders. He's just stumbled upon two murders, everyone is judging him based on his past, and all of it is starting to take its toll. In the second episode of Wolf Among Us, Telltale does an amazing job of unloading some of that burden off to the player.

Whereas Faith showed us Bigby from afar, we've now become him in Smoke and Mirrors. This is going to be one wild ride that even Toad might not be able to handle.

Everyone has a weakness: Wolf Among Us episode 2 trailer

Mine is that I work too hard. If you had any faith that things wouldn't continue to be just awful after the first episode of The Wolf Among Us, why? Things are clearly awful. Things will undoubtedly get more awful. It's the way of the world -- especially neo-noir gritty fairytale worlds.  The somewhat tardy episode 2 is 'coming soon.' That's not soon enough.

A school in Norway uses The Walking Dead game to educate

Our methods of education are evolving all the time. When I was in elementary school, there were heavy amounts of Number Munchers, Oregon Trail, and Reader Rabbit involved in my learning experience. Now, a school in Norw...

Alcohol makes the gaming industry go round

Review: The Walking Dead Season 2: All That Remains
by Chris Carter

I'll just come right out and say it -- Telltale's The Walking Dead was my 2012 game of the year. Although I really didn't dig the first episode, by the conclusion of the second I was absolutely hooked, and it didn't really let up until its memorable finale. While the follow-up 400 Days wasn't quite as compelling, it was still held to the same gold standard as the series proper.

In that regard, Season Two has some big shoes to fill, and Clementine has stepped up to the plate to do just that. Although I'll refrain from spoiling any major plotpoints, note that there will of course be minor story details discussed below, as well as spoilers for Season One.

The Walking Dead S2E1 trailer is so cold and alone photo
The Walking Dead S2E1 trailer is so cold and alone
by Brett Makedonski

"You're either living or you're not. You ain't little, you ain't a girl, you ain't a boy, you ain't strong or smart. You're alive." Clementine hasn't had the most fair of childhoods. But, I suppose that doesn't matter much. She's alive, and that's all that matters.

Episode one of season two, "All That Remains" looks as if it'll explore Clementine's rough and tumble youth in greater detail. Telltale's said that it expects The Walking Dead second season premiere episode to launch this month. Until then, listen to the chilling music in this trailer.

Telltale, Gearbox team up for Tales from the Borderlands

For the first reveal of this year's VGX, a Telltale logo showed up on a vending machine, with very Telltale-esque cel-shading. Not so Telltale was the music, which was clearly a Borderlands guitar riff. Yep, Telltale is maki...
