The Walking Dead Season Two, Episode 5

The episodic format is a holdover from a time when it was necessary for Telltale to be able to continue making games and no longer seems like an inherent part of the stories they tell.

The Walking Dead Season Two, Episode 4

With episode 4 of its second season, I feel as if the well is running dry on Telltale's ability to wring new meaning out of The Walking Dead franchise.

The Wolf Among Us: Episodes 4 & 5

Noir isn't about deduction or reasoning. It's about shaking the trees and seeing what falls out. That's what these episodes are about.

The Walking Dead Season Two, Episode 3

This season of The Walking Dead is not satisfied with establishing a status quo, nor with simply playing to expectations. It doesn't care how we think things should go. It isn't that kind of world anymore.

The Wolf Among Us: Episode 3

The Wolf Among Us isn't the same morality simulator as The Walking Dead, and that's a good thing.
