Here's a first look at Telltale's Guardians of the Galaxy

We've known about Telltale's take on Guardians of the Galaxy for so long now that it seems crazy that we're just now getting an actual glimpse at it. It's true though! Four months ago, we got this Walkman floating through space, and it...

Hitman's first season really is worth a look at $30

I know, I know -- you don't have time for more games as it is right now. I feel ya. But I also know that some of you have been patiently waiting for the first season of Hitman to wrap, and it has. Here's a nudge. IO Interactive has slashed ...

Hitman Season 2 is officially in the works

Those who enjoyed this year's episodic Hitman will be happy to know that the journey isn't over for Agent 47. In an interview with GamerGen at Paris Games Week, Eidos confirmed that Season 2 is in the works. There isn't an exact count ...

Orwell is an episodic game about online mass surveillance

People close to me would know that I pay far too much attention to news and politics for my own good, despite it being quite a soul-crushing affair more often than not. Of course, this does mean that I've become quite interested in the game...

IO Interactive has plans for three seasons of Hitman

I'm eager for IO Interactive to wrap up Hitman not just because I'm enjoying it so far, but because I want folks who are opposed to its episodic structure to play it and have a good time, too. There are a few locations left to go, including...

Review: The Gallery - Episode 1: The Call of Starseed

Due to the short development time developers have had with the Vive and Steam's seemingly non-existent quality control, most things available for the Vive are cynical Unity store asset flips or simple basic experiences.Currently, there are ...

The Humble Telltale Games Bundle has some pretty good stuff

Many people could be forgiven for mistakenly thinking that Telltale Games came into existence with The Walking Dead - Season 1. That's where Telltale hit its first real home run with episodic content of mainstream properties, and its the re...

Review: Minecraft: Story Mode: Order Up!

As the old saying goes, absence makes the heart grow fonder. That might have happened with Minecraft: Story Mode. The first four episodes of the season released within two and a half months of one another, and I had been pretty lukewarm on ...

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...

Ex-Blizzard developers have banded together to produce new episodic horror game, Broken. Said to be inspired by games like The Walking Dead, The Last of Us and Half-Life, the new studio - Kollide Entertainment - wants to develop a narr...

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 ...

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...

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...

A cartload of Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 4 screenshots

Vacation travel kept me from being able to get to the latest episode in Telltale's Minecraft: Story Mode right away. I just finished it, and as always, I had my finger on the screenshot button the whole way through. Maybe you can use t...

Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 4 will be home for Christmas

It's almost bizarre to think that the first episode of Minecraft: Story Mode was out less than two months ago, and here we are gearing up for the fourth in the series. Episode Four, A Block and a Hard Place releases on PC on December 22, wi...

Republique finally gets analog controls on PS4

Republique, a stealth game proud of its Metal Gear Solid 4 lineage, was Kickstarted in 2012. It hit iOS in 2013, and then proceeded at a pace of one port per year (2014, Android; 2015, PC) en route to three of five episodes having been rele...

Kentucky Route Zero Act 4 is 'almost done'

Hey, quick question. Do you pronounce the word 'route' as "R-out" or "root"? I'm in the latter camp, myself. Anyway, independent developers Cardboard Computer released another 140-character progress update on the much-anticipated fourt...
