Minecraft: Story Mode – Episode 4: A Block and A Hard Place (PS4)

A fitting end, but not really

Telltale's fourth Minecraft release over the course of just a few months continues the breakneck launch schedule that the developer has suddenly become fond of. We've been weary of this rapid schedule from day one because it's in such stark contrast to their normally overly long, drawn out release time frame - and this...

The Walking Dead: Michonne Rises with Debut Trailer

Undead in February

Who's ready for some more The Walking Dead? Yeah, us too. Telltale Games' other announcement at The Game Awards 2015 pertained to its standalone episodic spin-off, The Walking Dead: Michonne. The triple bill will begin in February on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, and will be canon to the comic series, spanning Issue #126...

Telltale Games' Batman Game Steps Out of the Shadows

The Dark Knight rises

Telltale Games, the developer of a billion other titles, is adding one more to its slate. Announced at The Game Awards 2015, the studio is collaborating with Warner Bros in order to don the cowl in an all-new adventure next year. Details are so scarce that not even the Batcomputer could detect any, but there's a fancy trailer...

Minecraft: Story Mode – Episode 3: The Last Place You Look (PS4)

Begin the rebuild

A short month and a half after Telltale's Minecraft: Story Mode premiered, we have already arrived at the third episode of the season. The first instalment wasn't exactly something that we were convinced by, but it left us interested. Unfortunately, Episode Two delivered one of the weakest episodic releases that we've seen in some...

Telltale to Sit Atop the Iron Throne for Game of Thrones: Season 2

Already in development, of course

Just when you thought that Telltale may actually take some time off to upgrade its engine and give its writing team some respite, it goes and announces another game. According to the developer, it's going to make Game of Thrones: Season 2 – in fact, it's already started work on it. The first season concluded...

Brickin' Hell! Minecraft: Story Mode Squares Up Next Week

We didn't axe for this

This is not what we've come to expect from Telltale. The developer is notorious for its drawn out release schedules, but it's crafted Minecraft: Story Mode – Episode 3: The Last Place You Look in no time at all. Ordinarily we'd be tossing the developer a hunk of meat and giving it a bop on the bonce, but we've been really...

Minecraft: Story Mode - Episode 2: Assembly Required (PS4)

Missing a few pieces

Now that Tales from the Borderlands has concluded, it seems like Telltale may be working a little harder to release its games with shorter gaps between each episode. This marks the second Minecraft: Story Mode release of October, a paltry two weeks after the opening episode. Unfortunately, even with such a quick turnaround, the...

Tales from the Borderlands: Episode 5 - The Vault of the Traveler (PS4)

Finger-gun fight at the O.K. Corral

Tales from the Borderlands ended its first season recently – coincidentally, on the same day that Life Is Strange concluded – after nearly a year. While the release "schedule" for this series has been shaky at best for most of its run, Telltale remained a little more consistent as we got closer to the...

Crafty devils

Minecraft: Story Mode is Telltale Games' newest series. While it currently has two other releases with unfinished seasons – Game of Thrones and Tales from the Borderlands – at least we know that one of them will be wrapping up very soon. So, the time seems ripe to begin a new episodic adventure. Unfortunately, the studio seems to...

Minecraft: Story Mode Begins Its Quest on PS4, PS3 from 13th October

Block buster

Minecraft: Story Mode has the potential to be the biggest thing since breaking bricks with your fists or a colossal flop – but whichever paved path it takes, we'll find out soon. Telltale Games has confirmed on the PlayStation Blog that the first episode, The Order of the Stone, will launch on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3...

Tales from the Borderlands: Episode 4 - Escape Plan Bravo (PS4)

Skin pizza party

Since their respective debuts, Telltale appears to have prioritised Game of Thrones over Tales from the Borderlands. Indeed, the latter's release "schedule" could, at best, be described as inconsistent. The first episode released in November of last year, and now, ten months later, we've just made it to the fourth instalment. This...

Telltale Puts Xbox Button Prompts in a PS4 Game

Great job, Jeremy

Telltale's notorious quality assurance department is at it again, forgetting to change some of the button prompts in Tales from the Borderlands: Episode 4. One eagle-eyed NeoGAF user spotted that his PlayStation 4 copy of the title popped up controller art from the Xbox release – and they caught the error on video in order to...

Great Scott! Telltale's Back to the Future Travels Through Time to PS4

What the flux?

Telltale's largely forgotten adaptation of Back to the Future appears to be riding shotgun in a snazzy silver DeLorean to the PlayStation 4. A product page for the episodic escapade – which originally deployed on the PlayStation 3 four years ago – popped up on Amazon overnight, alongside some mock-up box art. The cover includes a...

We nether saw this coming

Joining the ranks of Telltale's The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, and more recent Tales from the Borderlands releases is Minecraft: Story Mode, an episodic game series that will create new lore for Minecraft. The title was properly revealed earlier today at this year's Minecon convention. Instead of following the story...

Touchgoal

After a hiatus that felt like forever, Telltale returns with Tales from the Borderlands: Episode 3 – Catch a Ride. While we felt that the opening episode was fantastic – it really was a pleasant surprise – the follow-up took a step back. It wasn't that Episode 2 was bad, it just didn't feel terribly fulfilling – but now we're at...

Just when you thought Telltale Games couldn't get any more prolific, it announces an entirely new game. Speaking on Geoff Keighley's youtube coverage of E3, the company revealed that it will be bringing a three episode series titled The Walking Dead: Michonne to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 later this year.

Game of Thrones: Episode 4 - Sons of Winter (PlayStation 4)

Winter has come

We are now two-thirds of the way through Telltale's Game of Thrones. House Forrester has spent the past three episodes being knocked around and bullied by House Bolton, House Whitehill, and a plethora of other antagonists. But while we found this series to be a bit of a slow burn at first, it has picked up pace of late, so can...
