I've been skeptical about Telltale Games' Tales from the Borderlands. Sure, the art style will fit, but how were they gonna take a gun happy game like Borderlands and turn it into a point-and-click choose-your-own-death game? Well, they have a plan, and it actually seems like it could be interesting.
Along with a new screenshot, the official Telltale Games Twitter account has tweeted out a release window for Episode Two of The Walking Dead Season Two. Brace for feels in early March, and look for a trailer sooner than that.
Telltale Games now has two episodic games in the wild with only one episode each. The Wolf Among Us gets its second episode tomorrow, while The Walking Dead is teased to be just around the corner - like a walker? Check out all this twitter teasing.
Darryn likes to disparage TellTale Games' The Walking Dead, calling it a "choose your own death" game. You guys know I love the game, and now it is being used for more than just awesome entertainment - it's teaching school kids lessons.
Love it or hate it, Telltale Games' approach to interactive story-telling combined with choose your own adventure decision making is here to stay. Some may argue that it isn't compelling gameplay, yet popular demand and appreciation seems to prove otherwise. I fully enjoyed The Walking Dead Season One, and so far it seems that Season Two will be equally addictive and compelling. I'm avoiding any spoilers for Season One and Two for those who haven't played it, so if you still need to play the game (and really, you should) you can carry on reading without "the fear".
Tequila often leads to strange pairings, as any bartender or bar fly can attest. However, at last year's Spike VGAs, it helped bring Telltale Games and Gearbox together, eventually leading to that strange love child that will be Tales from the Borderlands.
After earning numerous awards for The Walking Dead, Telltale Games became something of a household name among gamers. Sure, it's sort of a point-and-click adventure mixed with dialogue choices, yet it goes so far beyond that in terms of story and characters. It's no wonder that people were excited when they heard that Telltale was turning their attention to the much enjoyed graphic novel series, Fables.
Oh Steam, why do you do this to me? I was just about to start working through some of my console backlog, but no, you had to come with another amazing sale including The Walking Dead.
As far as games go, I’ve got to be honest and admit that I didn’t think that much of The Walking Dead. As far as stories go however, Telltale Games managed to craft something spectacular with that episodic series where not having your flesh dined upon by zombies was a priority. Time for season two of those games to kick things up a notch.
It’s Monday. That automatically means that life sucks and you better get back to work before your boss catches you reading this. Or you can say testicles to that upcoming meeting on staff synergy, and download some games instead. Here’s a few newer ones that are worth that final paycheck.
Choose-your-own-demise adventure game The Walking Dead hit it big last year, with numerous critics forgetting that it was more an interactive story than an actual video game when they were doling out the rewards. That success translated into big sales for the game across multiple platforms, although they weren’t without a few bugs that affected the overall experience. Quite a few folks were really infected (Ha! Zombie humour) by these bugs, killing their save games in the process. And that’s something that Telltale is looking to avoid with season 2 of their game.
And not just the band either. With the Dice summit underway in fabulous Las Vegas, we’ve seen a few exciting conferences from industry professionals, floating around new ideas, games and Hollywood partnerships. Screw all that though, because the event is better known for its awards that reward the best of the best in the industry. Except this year, some of the choices in various fields are just downright baffling.
So the release date for Activision’s The Walking Dead game has been revealed, it’ll not only release on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 anymore, it’ll also be released on the…
If there’s one thing that I have learnt from playing The Walking Dead episodic quick-time event, it’s that I am a horrible, horrible person. Even though I insist that using Clementine as a strap-on zombie shield would have been brilliant. Decisions made in that game carried weight, and with a sequel on the cards, Telltale Games is looking to carry the impact of those choices, into season two.
Telltale’s take on the Walking Dead is excellent, and one of last year’s most compelling video game experiences. It’s elevated storytelling within the medium of videogames beyond a level many thought possible – and if you’ve managed to play through the entirety of the first season without some emotional stirring, you’re either a psychopath, or dead. To wit, it’s really bloody good, and it shows in the sales figures.
