The penultimate episode of The Walking Dead: Season Two has arrived, and for the most part it’s a doozy. Picking up where the end of Episode 3, “In Harm’s Way”, left off, “Amid the Ruins” finds our heroine Clementine and her fellow survivors in dire straits, surrounded by a walker herd. A tough choice comes almost immediately, and they don’t get much easier as the episode goes on. There may even be times where you cringe at your decisions, making you wonder how you could decide such things. As it has for this season of Telltale Games The Walking Dead your choices always seem to be between bad and worse, and do you let morals dictate your pick or do you choose the more practical approach and base things on your continued survival...Read More

Telltale Games has struck gold again with another comic book based series. First it was The Walking Dead, now in its second season. And now, using Bill Willingham’s Fables as the source material, they’ve wrapped up the overall brilliant first season of The Wolf Among Us with Episode 5- “Cry Wolf”. After the misstep in the previous episode (not that it was bad by any means, but out of all the episodes it felt more like filler and just set-up for he conclusion) this was a finale which exceeded my expectations. It was loaded with plenty of character defining moments, tense action, and a few surprises that may stun a few players. This is noir at its finest, making you think things should be black and white but revealing the world to be shades of gray...Read More
