Review Tales from the Borderlands - A Story Worth Telling That Thrives On Switch
I will name my first born, Loader Bot
The tragic demise of Telltale Games really is quite a bitter pill to swallow when you take a step back to fully consider the brilliance of its multi-award winning back catalogue of choice-based adventure games. From The Wolf Among Us to Batman: The Enemy Within, The Walking Dead to Guardians of the Galaxy, this...
Review The Walking Dead: The Complete First Season - The Perfect Intro To Telltale's Classic Series
The beginning of the end
It’s almost frightening to think it’s been almost six and a half years since Telltale first brought The Walking Dead to life in a new and exciting interpretation; the game that finally took its choice-driven narrative template and made those consequences truly consequential in a world where a single decision could...
Review The Walking Dead: The Final Season (Switch eShop)
Done Running, indeed
After all this time, it’s a strange and melancholy thing to see Telltale draw one of its many choice-driven interactive stories to a definitive end. After all, this was the franchise that put the California studio back on the map, with a fine-tuned formula that took everything that made Robert Kirkman’s original comic story...
Review Batman - The Telltale Series (Switch)
Be the man, become the bat
Long-time fans of Telltale Games will no doubt remember when the independent publisher and developer - specialising in the creation of episodic point-and-click games - hit its stride. Having worked with various IP including Sam & Max and Monkey Island since its inception in 2004, the company became more widely known...
Review Minecraft: Story Mode - The Complete Adventure (Switch)
Closing out the story
The Wii U was known for often getting pushed aside or ignored when it came to third party support, and so it goes that although Minecraft: Story Mode came to the console, it only delivered a little over half the episodes in the full season. Nintendo fans of the series were no doubt miffed that they weren’t given the chance to...
Review Minecraft: Story Mode - Episodes 2-5 (Wii U eShop)
Once upon a time...
After months of waiting, Telltale Games has finally gotten around to releasing more episodes of Minecraft: Story Mode content on Wii U. The question on everyone's mind, then, is whether or not it was worth the wait. Overall, the storytelling has some pacing issues and the performance sometimes isn't up to snuff, but it's...
Review Minecraft: Story Mode - Episode 1: The Order of the Stone (Wii U eShop)
While it's a fairly common trend for Nintendo games to be focused around the gameplay first and foremost, there are other games that go in a completely different direction. Some aren't so much about the gameplay as they are about the story or the experience, and while this is certainly different from a conventional video game, it's not...
Review Back to the Future: The Game (Wii)
Make like a tree and read this review
They say that if you were to travel back a million years and step on a butterfly, you could wipe out an entire species and change the world forever with that one seemingly infinitesimal move. When Marty McFly took a shorter excursion, back three decades to 1955, he almost erased his own existence in a similar...
Review Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 5 (WiiWare)
Another episodic adventure comes to an end.
It took a surprisingly long time, but the fifth and final chapter of Guybrush's latest adventure has finally hit WiiWare. Every previous chapter has been building up towards this supposedly epic conclusion, so was the long wait worth it? Considering this is the fifth and final part, spoilers for the series...
Review Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 4 (WiiWare)
Setting up for the grand finale.
The Monkey Island games have never really been dark. There's been some grim moments here and there, but they always had their fair share of humour and weren't really depressing or anything. Well, if you play this chapter, prepare to have your mind blown! As goes without saying now, this chapter is a no-no unless...
Review Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 3 (WiiWare)
A well-liked classic character returning makes everything better.
As you might have expected, it's a tad pointless to review this game. It's a direct sequel to the previous chapter, and plays exactly the same way. As it is not recommended to play this before playing the previous two chapters, you should already know what you're getting into when you...
Review Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 2 (WiiWare)
Guybrush continues his piratey misadventures
It's almost pointless reviewing this second chapter in the Tales of Monkey Island story - you should absolutely not play it unless you've played the first, because it continues where that left off, meaning you will be missing potentially vital plot information. If you've already played the first and liked...
Review Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 1 (WiiWare)
Is Guybrush Threepwood still the wannabe pirate king?
The 'point and click' adventure has been clinically dead for quite a while now, largely because it seemed impossible to make a good example of the genre in 3D. Many developers tried, but almost all of them failed, mostly due to clunky controls or annoying moving cameras. To be honest, there’s...
Review Strong Bad Episode 5 - 8-Bit is Enough (WiiWare)
Strong Bad goes 8-bit in the final installment of the SBCG4AP series
Dry those tears, folks - it’s finally time for the last episode of Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People! Surely they’ve saved the best for last? At the very least, they do tie up some loose ends. For example, we’ve seen a broken Trogdor arcade cabinet in the last...
Review Strong Bad Episode 4 - Dangeresque 3: The Criminal Projective (WiiWare)
Is Dangeresque 3 another box office hit?
The time has arrived - after 4 years, one of the most anticipated Strong Bad-related things is finally here! In Dangeresque 3, the sequel to Dangeresque 1: Dangeresque, Too? and Dangeresque 2: This Time, It's Not Dangeresque 1, you once again need to search for clues and talk to various characters to advance...
Review Strong Bad Episode 3 - Baddest of the Bands (WiiWare)
Does Strong Bad’s third WiiWare outing rock as much as the plot?
The third part of Strong Bad’s episodic series is pretty much the same as the previous two. You’ll visit various locations and obtain a variety of items, which you must use on the correct objects to advance the plot. The plot in this episode is just what you’d expect from the...
Review Strong Bad Episode 2 - Strong Badia the Free (WiiWare)
Strong Bad is placed under house arrest. Can you still handle his style?
If you're a fan of Homestar Runner and you downloaded the first episode of Strong Bad's Cool Game For Attractive People, Homestar Ruiner, you probably enjoyed it. It was hard not to notice a few minor flaws though; some solutions were a bit strange (you had to use certain items...
Review Strong Bad Episode 1 - Homestar Ruiner (WiiWare)
Are you cool and attractive enough to handle Strong Bad's style on WiiWare?
Telltale Games have been developing some of the most prominent and downright hilarious adventure games of the past several years, while Homestar Runner has been responsible for one of the most popular and ridiculously enjoyable Flash cartoons of this millennium. It may seem...
