Tales From Borderlands Ep 2 Is What I've Wanted From Telltale For Ages

I’ve always said that the best thing about Telltale games isn’t QTE-heavy action or near-pornographic dedication to depictions of bad things happening to good people. It’s disarmingly intimate character moments. Tales from the Borderlands episode two is chock full of them.


A Chronicle Of Messed Up Telltale Games, 2012-2015

It is a truth universally acknowledged but little examined that Telltale’s games have issues. The studio rose to prominence with 2012’s Game of the Year-worthy The Walking Dead adventure game. Since then, their games, wonderful in many ways as they may be, have been accompanied by an undercurrent of fan anger. Each subsequent notch in their belt — a good review here, an award nomination there, a new licensing deal over there — has carried with it echoes of unhappy players, people who are upset over buggy games, erased saves and purchases that won’t carry through.


The Choices We Made In Game Of Thrones Episode Two

Nothing’s easy in Westeros. There are no simple decisions, no sure outcomes, and just when you think you’ve made the right call, something unexpected turns up and kills you.


Game Of Thrones: TV Actors Vs Game Characters

Game of Thrones finally has a good video game series, with solid cameos by some of the TV show’s most memorable ladies and gents, to boot. With episode two out, many of the major players — Jon Snow included — have made their polygonal debuts. But do they actually look… right? Let’s find out.


What Telltale Could Learn From Life Is Strange

There was a time when “Telltale” was just a game studio. But over the last few years, fuelled by the success of 2012 Game of the Year contender The Walking Dead, it’s become shorthand for a whole genre. That genre is in desperate need of a viable competitor to spur Telltale to fix some annoying, perennial flaws.

The Internet Reacts To Minecraft: Story Mode

Nobody expected Telltale to announce a “narrative driven” take on Minecraft this morning. Thing is, while seemingly everyone loves playing Minecraft, nobody is playing the game because of the story. That’s exactly what’s causing the partnership between Telltale and Minecraft to look like it’s coming from left field.


New Minecraft Game Coming From Makers Of The Walking Dead Game

Minecraft is getting a story, and it will be told through the lens of a narrative-driven game by Telltale.


QTEs Don't Have To Suck

“Press X to not die.” It’s a gaming cliche at this point, one that many view as a symptom of lazy game design. Quick time events, as they’re known, are glorified cut-scenes. Things happen, and we press buttons that don’t really match up with the action on screen. They can be pretty bad.


Phew, The New Game Of Thrones Game Is Actually Good

“There will never be a good Game of Thrones video game.” For years, those words rang just as true as the Starks’ promise of winter. Finally, it feels as though that’s changed.
