Review: 7 Days to Die (PS4)

7 Days to Die (PS4)

Kill me

The premise behind 7 Days to Die is strong: it's an open-world zombie survival horror game smashed together with the crafting and building elements of Minecraft. That description sounds compelling, but the final product doesn't come anywhere near to being fun. Before you jump into the actual game, you are given a plethora of options to...

Here's Your First Look at The Walking Dead: Season 3 on PS4

Clem the killer

This author often feels like the only person on the planet that preferred The Walking Dead: Season 2 to its award-winning predecessor, but your humble host thought that the development of Clem's character was really great. The Walking Dead: Season 3 promises to be something special, then, with the once optimistic tween now turning...

Holy Cel-Shading, Batman! Telltale Tackles the Dark Knight in New Series

Dark delight

Batman's looking bad ass in Telltale's new series, which is set to debut on "consoles" later this year. The imaginatively named Batman: The Telltale Series will release both digitally and at retail – with a voucher enabling access to each episode as it releases – and promises to focus on Bruce Wayne just as much as the Caped...

Minecraft: Story Mode - Episode 5: Order Up! (PS4)

Blockheaded

Telltale released the first four episodes of its Minecraft series fairly quickly – within three months, actually – but opted to wait several months before deploying the fifth episode. We've slung our fair share of criticisms at this series, but one of our biggest complaints was that Episode Four felt like the end of Season One; the...

The Walking Dead: Michonne - Episode 1: In Too Deep (PS4)

A name you won't forget

Telltale Games' portfolio may be deep these days, but it's the company's exemplary contributions to The Walking Dead universe that will forever earn top billing. Alongside millions of others, we love the crushingly hard choices and branching character development that's unfolded over two seasons thus far. That said, we were...

Assuming that you're not sick and tired of Telltale Games' interactive story template, you'll be happy to hear that The Walking Dead: Michonne is set to launch on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 later this month.

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...

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...
