Telltale Games is on something of a roll right now; along with Fables: The Wolf Among Us and the second season of The Walking Dead, it has upcoming series based on Borderlands and Game of Thrones. But if money and the required licensing deals were no issue, then 007 himself would star in Telltale's dream game. 

The studio's co-founder Kevin Bruner has told OXM that he's a big James Bond fan and that's he's been disgruntled at how the super spy has been portrayed in previous videogame outings. "I'm always frustrated by games that make him a mass murderer," he explains. "He's a super-spy, and that's a different skillset." Whilst Goldeneye is rightly revered, I get where Bruner is coming from; Bond movies aren't about high body counts and it's the actual spying parts that are the best.

Kevin also explains why Telltale hasn't developed its own IP, despite the studio's growing success. "Licensing has played an important part in enabling this company to do as much as it's done without having to create a new IP wholecloth, which is a big undertaking with a lot of associated risk." Regardless of how much you like or dislike the mechanics of the Telltale games, I think most folks would agree the studio never tarnishes the IP that it is adapting. However, I think it would be just be a matter of time before they branch out and create their own games.

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

I absolutely love the SCUMM period of Lucasfilm Games (later LucasArts) development and this document gives insight into the game that started it all. It's interesting to see that although the Edison family stayed much the sa...more

Review: The Walking Dead Season 2: Amid the Ruins

The last episode of The Walking Dead was probably my favorite one yet -- and that's including all of Lee's tale from the first season. Clem has made the switch from tough to full-on badass depending on your choices, and ...more
