Despite the bitchin’ soundtrack, Telltale Games’ latest collaboration, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, can’t be called a thrilling, rock-fueled space opera. It’s more like easy listening. The first episode’s biggest event happens in the first few minutes, and everything else is characters sitting around and…
So, in a certain way, that’s a comic based on a game inspired by a movie based on a comic that the game based on a movie is also based on, loosely. I think. Hold on, I’m starting to get a headache.
Marvel Games isn’t forcing its developers to tie their video games into existing Marvel Cinematic Universe storylines. This might sound weird, given how interconnected the MCU has been over the past decade, but it’s actually a blessing in disguise.
Over the last few months, development studio Telltale Games have been radically re-configuring key parts of the Batman mythos to give players a shockingly different take on the Dark Knight. It all comes to a head in the final chapter of Batman: The Telltale Series, which puts a capstone on a very good portrayal of…
For the past three months, game development studio Telltale has delivered shocking, clever twists in each episode of their Batman video game. But despite the appearance of the Dark Knight’s archenemy, that doesn’t happen in this week’s episode four of Batman: The Telltale Series.
In most versions of the Batman mythos, Bruce Wayne fights crime to avenge the sudden, senseless murder of his parents. The Dark Knight who stars in Batman: The Telltale Series has a backstory that’s surprisingly twisted.
The reveal of Minecraft: Story Mode was met with a lot of internet skepticism in 2014—could a narrative-driven take 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.
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.
"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.
I'll admit, I went into Tales from the Borderlands with pretty low expectations. Don't get me wrong: I like a lot of things about the zany world in which Gearbox's Borderlands shooter series takes place, but it's good for... shooting. Tales is an all-story adventure game. Yikes, right?
Could this be the first great Game of Thrones video game? It's premature to start praising Telltale's upcoming series before we've even gotten a chance to play it, but the stars seem to be aligning for this one.
Poor Game of Thrones hasn't had the best of luck with video games so far, but people are way more optimistic about Telltale's (The Walking Dead) upcoming take on the franchise. Over the weekend these images, reportedly of the as-yet-unseen game, appear to have leaked. As you can see, Cersei is not impressed.
UPDATE (3:30pm): What we first thought was a bug is actually an intentional fan project, according to Telltale, the company behind The Wolf Among Us. "This is actually a fan made modification using existing game animation assets from a previous episode," a Telltale rep tells us. (The episode in question.) Kotaku's…
There are few things more stressful than being forced to make an important decision without all the necessary information. Whom do you trust? Whom do you betray? And what aren't they telling you?
The rumors were true: Telltale, the studio behind The Walking Dead, is making a Game of Thrones video game series, they just announced at the Spike VGX. It's based on the show, and it's coming next year.
