The Wolf Among us Episodes 4 & 5

This morning I woke up, got my coffee and sat down to run a back-to-back play session with the final two episodes of Wolf Among Us. The scrape-up with Bloody Mary and the Crooked Man at the end of episode 3 has left the Big Bad Wolf battered and broken with...

The Walking Dead Season 2: In Harm’s Way

    Things take a turn for the truly dark in the third episode of season two with the group being shipped to Carver’s homestead of militants masquerading as civil engineers. The underlying themes of trust and innocence lost seen throughout the season step into the light at the end of In Harm’s Way, warts and...

The Wolf Among Us Episode 3: A Crooked Mile

Smoke and Mirrors left off with both an appropriately tense cliffhanger and startling revelation. A Crooked Mile picks off right where we left off with Bigby at the seedy, blood-spattered brothel/hotel room now moonlighting as a crime scene. With a likely candidate for the prime murder suspect being deciphered through the discovery...

The Walking Dead Season 2: A House Divided

I thought I’d never return to that emotional, bittersweet place the first season of the Walking Dead took me to. I was certain that space in my gamer heart was to remain exclusively reserved for the journey I took as Lee Everett. As Clementine, Telltale has deftly proven their ability...

The Walking Dead Season 2: All that Remains

Telltale created an amazing piece of storytelling with their episodic Walking Dead series.

There was...

The Wolf Among Us: Episode 2 – Smoke and Mirrors

The first episode of The Wolf Among Us was a well crafted affair with intrigue, deception and a steady build-up that left off on a razor-sharp cliffhanger. Smoke and Mirrors slows things down while attempting to deliver a second helping of the set-pieces that made Faith such a great experience....

XCOM: Enemy Within

X-COM: Enemy Within Review

X-COM: Enemy Unknown was a game you could literally lose yourself in for 8 hours, realize it’s 4AM, then turn back to the screen and mutter to yourself “Just one more mission”. The depth and replay value of the original were so staggering that it put fear in my heart...

Outlast Review

Before I begin, I’d like to point out that I don’t do well with survival horror games. It’s not that I dislike playing them it’s just that I’m an easy mark for jump scares, psychopaths gnawing on my ankles, that sort of thing. So when I sat down to play...

The Wolf Among Us: Episode 1 – Faith

The Wolf Among Us drops you into the world of Bill Willingham’s acclaimed Fables series as Bigby Wolf, the Sheriff of Fabletown. Despite being in dire need of a shave and having something of a wild streak in him, Bigby isn’t a bad guy. Of course solving crimes within a secret society of...
