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.
