LEGO The Hobbit- A familiar journey that’s still worth your time

legohobbit4It seems we’ve gotten more than our share of LEGO games as of late. The plastic bricks even hit the big screen this year, followed by the prerequisite video game tie-in. One would think all of this exposure would burn out gamers on the franchise, and yet the games still provide enough enjoyment to make us dive into each and every entry. The latest title, LEGO The Hobbit, is no exception, as it provides the same fun gameplay as previous titles, with a couple of tweaks and one of the most coherent narratives of the series. The narrative hews very closely to its source material, that being the first two Hobbit films from director Peter Jackson, An Unexpected Journey and The Desolation of Smaug...

The Wolf Among Us: Episode 3- A Crooked Mile- The tension mounts

ep3twauTelltale Games The Wolf Among Us has now reached its halfway mark. To date, the series has matched that of The Walking Dead Season One in quality, even with sadly being marred by the same continuing technical issues on the console versions. The noirish tale of murder in Fabletown has thus far proved to be highly engrossing, with the lead character of Bigby Wolf proving to be an engaging and likeable hero of sorts. The story has had its share of twists and turns through the first two chapters, and contains a cast of well defined characters based on Bill Willingham’s excellent Vertigo comics series Fables. While Episode 2- Smoke and Mirrors was primarily setting the stage for things to come, it still held your interest throughout, even though the overall plot didn’t progress all that much...
