Discs of Vaughn: Tales from the Borderlands gets a physical edition

In true Telltale style, games that were once digital-only will eventually be available as a tangible product. In the past, it has been the likes of The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us. Now, Tales from the Borderlands gets that ...   read

Someone get me this Life is Strange phone case

The last time I got a new phone, the Verizon rep asked me if I'd like to trade in my old phone for credit toward accessories -- specifically a case for it. I politely declined and she was shocked. "You mean you don't want a case for yo...   read

Minecraft: Story Mode wanders to Wii U this Thursday

Four episodes down, one to go. That's if, like Darren, you're playing Minecraft: Story Mode on something other than Wii U. For that port, you'll have to wait a few more days. The first episode, The Order of the Stone, releases on the Wii U ...   read

Hitman's release structure changed, now fully episodic

"What exactly is the new Hitman going to be?" That's a question that has been on players' minds for a long time now. Looking in from the outside, the development process has been confusing and unclear. Judging by the waffling of Square Enix...   read

Review: Minecraft: Story Mode: A Block and a Hard Place

What a weird episode. After the high energy of The Last Place You Look, this one slows down the action shortly into it, and it doesn't really pick back up until the very end, which feels like the end of a season. But then, there's still ano...   read

Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 4 will be home for Christmas

Kentucky Route Zero Act 4 is 'almost done'

Review: Minecraft: Story Mode: The Last Place You Look

Minecraft: Story Mode didn't impress me with its first two episodes. Aimed at young players and Minecraft super fans, its writing didn't have a whole lot going for it past its Saturday morning cartoon plot and series in-jokes. It has been t...   read

Review: Life is Strange: Polarized

It's perfectly fitting that Life is Strange's final episode is subtitled Polarized. I can't think of a more apt word to describe my mindset right now. Life is Strange's conclusion left me satisfied, but not for the same reasons that made th...   read
