The reveal of Minecraft. Story Mode was met with a lot of internet scepticism in 2014 -- could a narrative-driven take could even work for such an open-ended exploration game? I've played through the first episode of the new series, and can say with confidence that yes, actually, a story fits Minecraft pretty damn well.

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.

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.

Video. Hope you're ready for more tears. Episode Two of Telltale's Game of Thrones series will be out the first week of February for all platforms, the developer announced today. PS3/PS4/PC/Mac on Tuesday, February 3; Xbox 360/Xbox One on Wednesday, February 4; iOS/Android on Thursday, Ferbuary 5. Episode One was great, so check it out if you're a fan of the series.
