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.
Overkill Software has built upon the success of their first game Payday: The Heist, and once again proven that not many things are as fun as grabbing some friends and spending an evening pulling off high-risk, high-reward bank heists and jewelry store robberies. The stress induced by shouting over your microphone just to be heard above the sound of high-powered rifles, screaming hostages and flashbangs is incredible, and every successful job will leave the player with a massive adrenaline rush.
