Voice actor Michael Dobson was born to be the voice of DeathSpank. Michael does that "full of himself douchebag" attitude perfectly, says DeathSpank creator Ron Gilbert, and easily nailed his audition session for the character.  Gilbert told me during my preview time earlier this week that Michael "was the first guy to walk in. I just heard him and went cancel everyone else!"

Michael not only nailed the voice, but he really got into the character of DeathSpank. "There came this point where [Michael] would read lines and go “Oh DeathSpank wouldn’t say that. He’d say it like this!” He’d be changing the wording on me a little bit."

DeathSpank is a funny game and a big part of the reason people will find any game that's meant to be comical is the voice talent. If you don't even chuckle at the first five minutes of DeathSpank, then you are a soulless person. SOULLESS!

While we wait for the last episode in season two of The Walking Dead adventure game, Telltale president Kevin Bruner and Walking Dead writer Robert Kirkman have gone ahead and confirmed at Comic-Con (and on Twitter) that there will be a third season.   I wonder if that gives clues on how the last episode might play out. more

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

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.more
