Telltale's coolly named follow-up to the critically acclaimed The Walking Dead riffs off of an established property once more. The Wolf Among Us is a prequel to popular Vertigo comic Fables, which I know by name, but haven't read. That being said, with the initial screens and now this trailer, I'm already awaiting this one with bells on my toes.

Also, for as pretty as the art style is, what with its cool purples and such, let's not forget to credit whoever made that title font at the trailer's end. So slick.

Early grumblings suggest Telltale is sticking with a focus on making choices, but there's also more divergence being added with some sort of time keeping that could yield players different scenes depending on when they do things relative to the narrative. Could be cool.

Telltale has built up a bunch of goodwill with the strong The Walking Dead. Now we wait to see if it can do it even better with The Wolf Among Us' first episode, Faith. I'm already down for the slightly more stylized design and weird setting. Also the green monkey gargoyle thing.

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.more

The Wolf Among Us episode two 'close to completion'

At first, I felt bad for holding off on playing The Wolf Among Us until the first season was finished. It's required some serious restraint, but seeing how long it's taking Telltale to put out the next chapter has me feeling ...more

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 ...more

Review: The Wolf Among Us: Faith

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 ...more

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...more

Here's a half hour of the Arkham Origins Mr. Freeze DLC, if you want to watch that

I've never quite understood why people want to watch extended gameplay videos of upcoming content. I mean, if you're excited and want to play it, why would you want to spoil a long chunk of it? Conversely, if you couldn't ca...more

Gods Will Be Watching stressed me the hell out

I have found myself both playing and looking forward to more and more “point-and-click” games in the past few years than ever before. I didn’t grow up with games like Day of the Tentacle or the Monkey Island...more
