Telltale is reportedly working on Game of Thrones

This is one of those rumors that you can just picture being true. According to IGN, sources say Telltale Games is making a game based on Game of Thrones. Whether the project will draw inspiration directly from the HBO show or...

Telltale says it's lined up to work on a 'dream IP'

It's a good time to be Telltale Games. With generally positive reactions to the first episode of The Wolf Among Us and the reveal of The Walking Dead: Season Two going as one would expect, the future is looking bright. Partic...

Telltale's Walking Dead has sold more than 21M episodes

On the heels of Telltale's announcement of The Walking Dead: Season Two comes a tidbit that describes the performance of the inaugural season -- although, it's a tad misleading. Thus far, the series has sold mo...

The Walking Dead: Season Two revealed by Telltale Games
by Jim Sterling

Telltale Games has today lifted the lid on The Walking Dead: Season Two. Another installment of utterly depressing zombie sorrow is coming out way. It is a time to be both excited and fearful. There will be so much sad!

As suggested by the screenshots and teaser trailer, players will now directly control Clementine, struggling to outwit the undead horde and, inevitably, some human shits who'll doubtless use the zombie plague to be terrible people. You know how it goes. 

Set to begin "later this year," Season Two will appear as five episodes that can be purchased individually, or bought upfront for $22.49. Additionally, a "Game of the Year" edition of Season One will be sold for $29.99 before 2013 is over, and it'll include the 400 Days stopgap episode.

New releases: Skylanders, Goodbye Deponia, and more
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

A relatively tame week of releases, with the star being Skylanders: Swap Force. This series just prints money, especially now that you can split and merge toys to create new warriors. How cool is that?

The other biggies this week include Goodbye Deponia, The Stanley Parable: HD Remix, and The Wolf Among Us arrives on the PlayStation Network after being out for a few days on the Xbox 360 and PC already.

What are you planning on picking up?

Should you buy Wolf Among Us if you haven't read Fables?

Short answer: yes. I've heard talk over the past few days that the first episode of Wolf Among Us may be hard to follow for those of you who haven't read the Fables series, published by DC Comics' Vertigo line. Having played ...

Review: The Wolf Among Us: Faith photo
Review: The Wolf Among Us: Faith
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

What if the tales we were told growing up such as Snow White, Red Riding Hood, The Wizard of Oz, and so much more were actually all real? That these princesses and monsters exist, and their world neighbors ours? Now consider for a second an evil entity simply known as the Adversary. An evil so powerful that it has systematically taken over the world of all the fables, and those that were able to escape his tyranny have taken refuge in our world, the ordinary and mundane reality of human beings.

That's the very quick and simply premise of Telltale Games' next major episodic adventure, The Wolf Among Us, based on the DC Comics and Vertigo's Fables graphic novel series. Don't think for a second that these are all happy and cheerful Disney-like characters either. No, just like humans they're all broken in so many ways. These characters of lore are doing all that they can to survive and to keep their true lives a secret. There's crime, there's sex, and more than anything else there's death.

In particular, there's a murder to be solved when a severed head of a Fable lands on the doorstep of Snow White and the Big Bad Wolf.

We're so ready: The Wolf Among Us launch trailer

I don't normally have much interest in launch trailers but that changes when, in the case of The Wolf Among Us, there's been comparatively little promotion and the release date comes out of nowhere. The first episode of Tell...

Soon: The Wolf Among Us is out this Friday

We knew that Telltale's The Wolf Among Us was on the near horizon based on recent pricing info and a vague October release target. Can't say I was expecting it to be out this week, though! The first episode, Faith, goes live...

It's here! It's finally here! Pokemon X and Y is out this week for the 3DS and it's pretty much going to be the only thing anyone talks about leading up to the next-gen consoles. Oh, Beyond: Two Souls is also out this week. It has emotions and stuff. You like emotions, right?

Other biggies this week are two repacked re-releases: Borderlands 2 and Dishonored Game of the Year Editions. Oh, videogame industry. No wonder gamers love Steam sales so much.
