‘Batman: The Telltale Series – Episode 3′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

When a story reaches its mid-point there is a danger that the excitement will lull a little, until of course it again picks up pace. Telltale’s Batman Episode 3: New World Order is the third episode of Telltale’s take on Batman, with Bruce Wayne’s life descending into chaos, but strangely lacking in some of the […]

‘Game of Thrones: Episode 6 – The Ice Dragon’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

After the impressive way that Telltale Games managed to wrap up Tales From the Borderlands I wondered if Games of Thrones would find similar success. With Games of Thrones: Episode 6 – The Ice Dragon there were a lot of story strands to wrap up, and the problem may be that not all of them […]

‘Tales from the Borderlands: Ep 4 – Escape Plan Bravo’ Review (PC)

‘Game of Thrones: Episode Five – A Nest of Vipers’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

While the illusion of choice is somewhat waning now in Telltale Games, Game of Thrones: Episode Five – A Nest of Vipers proves that they can still tell a good story and kick you in the gut. More importantly, they can create a game that can stand tall in the world of Game of Thrones. Especially […]

‘Tales from the Borderlands: Episode 3 – Catch a Ride’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Telltale Games have reached a level with me where I enjoy the story, but the choices don’t have that much risk to them, if anything I’ve become cavalier with them. This isn’t a bad thing but there is a level of familiarity that tends to disconnect me from any danger and emotion. That was until […]

Coming so closely after the first episode of Tales of the Borderlands (which I loved), Telltale Games had a lot to prove with Game of Thrones: Iron From Ice.  With the source material being so popular and good, and the use of some of the actors from the show this wasn’t something that was impossible.  With the trailer […]

‘The Wolf Among Us Chapter 5: Cry Wolf’ Review (Xbox 360)

by Paul Metcalf

The Wolf Among Us has simmered, waiting to boil over through the first four episodes…like the wolf trying to break out of Bigby’s skin.  We’ve seen some action from him as he fights for the truth behind the Fable deaths, but only really seen the Wolf come out once and even then it didn’t have full […]

Review: The Walking Dead – Season 2 Episode 3 (Xbox 360)

by Paul Metcalf

The Walking Dead Season 2 – Episode 3: In Harm’s Way has finally changed the way I make decisions with Clementine.  I can’t really point out what caused this because that would be obvious spoilers but In Harm’s Way is an episode that is deceptively slow and much more discussion intensive than earlier episodes.  The fact […]
