Fairy tales living among us. That is, in essence, the premise of the Wolf Among Us. Based on the Fables graphic novel series by DC comics and Vertigo, we are taken to a world where fables have been booted from their stories and hide among our us.
Telltale Games chose to give us another episodic adventure. Reminiscent of choose your own adventure novels and games of old, The Wolf Among Us is more of a story telling medium than what most people might consider a game. Whether that is a good or bad thing is up to the player to decide. Regardless, I can’t help but draw comparisons to Telltale’s last popular title, The Walking Dead.
Live from the Comic-Con floor in San Diego, I had my first chance to play hands on with Beyond: Two Souls. For those who had missed previous news on this anticipated PS3 title, Quantic Dreams – the makers of Heavy Rain – have been promoting a very narrative-heavy experience that has promised to give people the same immersion and emotional reaction that hunting the Origami Killer did. Our question: Does the demo gameplay live up to the hype?
Scourge: Outbreak is a game that looks like Mass Effect, plays like Gears of War, and is only $10 to boot, what is the worst that could happen? Everything actually. Name any part of the game and there is something wrong with it, be it weapons, story, multiplayer, graphics, combat or GUI.
How you ever found yourself asking whether or not anyone else would even bother to finish playing a game? I hadn’t till I played this, and worse, I found myself asking if the developers had even played their own game prior to release.
