The Walking Dead Season Two, Episode 2

Clementine is an 11-year-old girl in an incredibly hostile world, and often her only tool to aid in her survival is language. Escaping danger, saving lives, condemning others are all based on the careful application of words.

The Wolf Among Us: Episodes 1 & 2

Bigby Wolf falls into the tradition of the beaten down noir investigator, a figure along the lines of a Philip Marlowe or a Sam Spade. However, he is different enough to eke out his own individuality within the context of a Fables inspired world.

The game seems to lack a cohesiveness that every episode of the previous season managed to produce.

The Walking Dead: 400 Days

The general absence of zombies in the new game never struck me as odd. They do exist, but overall, they never feel like a threat. At the same time, there seems to be no time in the game when you don’t feel threatened.

I am assuming my decisions in The Walking Dead will all pay off some in way in the end, but, perhaps, the inability to make choices that really matter at times suggests a more linear path, since Lee and the player can't always control the outcome.
