Teleglitch, released late last year, is quite a wonderful roguelike. It's also really incredibly difficult. Like, "good luck getting to level five" difficult. So when I heard about an upgraded version titled "Die More Edition," I got pretty frightened. How much harder could it get? Way harder.

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.

The first season of The Wolf Among Us may be over, but there's still one more trailer to indulge in.

One hell of a ride? Yeah, that sounds like The Wolf Among Us in a nutshell.
