With The Walking Dead Season 1 finished and season 2 yet to be released, Tealltale Games is giving fans a little something to hold them over. 400 Days is a new DLC add-on for the incredibly popular first season of the Walking Dead point and click adventure game. A single episode comprised of five separate stories, 400 days centers on the commonalities of those stories. With a shared timeline and central location you can bet that these stories will also share interesting characters, excellent writing, and heart breaking decisions for the player to make.
Nostalgic gaming trips are strange things. They are, at the same time, wonderful and terrible. It’s always great to step back into a classic game. Unfortunately the memory of the game is usually better than the actual game itself. Most of us have been conditioned to expect the latest and greatest, and decades old games simply can’t hold our attention. Such is the nature of an industry that is constantly evolving and moving forward as fast as it can. Three relatively obscure titles have been assembled for the Capcom Arcade 1986 Gamepack, obscure relative to the other Capcom Arcade Cabinet
The Walking Dead Episode 5 is the finale of Telltale Games’ amazing zombie point-and-click adventure. Episode 5 is aptly sub-titled “No Time Left” as it’s the shortest and most action oriented episode of the series, a sprint to the finish. Episode 5 is a shock the player’s system. It breaks from the established pattern of a dialogue driven story to let action move things along. The transition is fitting and feels just right given the circumstances you’re faced with. Episode 5 centers around Lee’s frantic search and rescue mission, he must save Clementine before time runs out. Forgoing the traditional
The Walking Dead: The Game Episode 5 ‘No Time Left’ releases this week (from Telltale Games) continuing the story of Lee Everett, a convicted killer and college professor, and Clementine, a young girl, trying to survive zombies and possibly the end of the world. With the eminent release of Episode 5 comes an extremely spoiler-heavy video exploring statistics associated with tracked in game decisions from Walking Dead Episode 4. Again the following video is filled to the top with spoilers, you have been warned. Playing through episode after episode of The Walking Dead I feel I’ve become as jaded to the
The Walking Dead Episode 4 picks up the story right after the events of Episode 3. The survivors arrive in Savannah in search of Clementine‘s parents, a boat and hopefully salvation. Things quickly take a turn for the terrible as the Savannah welcome wagon is actually just a crap load of zombies. It seems that all the good things that we can say about Telltale’s The Walking Dead series have already been said. That will make writing another glowing review a bit of a challenge. In short: Anyone who isn’t playing Telltale’s episodic The Walking Dead game should be. With

The Walking Dead Video Game Episode 4 ‘Around Every Corner’ releases this week (from Telltale Games) continuing the story of Lee Everett, a convicted killer and college professor, and Clementine, a young girl, trying to survive zombies and possibly the end of the world. With the eminent release of Episode 4 comes an extremely spoiler-heavy video exploring statistics associated with tracked in game decisions from Walking Dead Episode 3. Again the following video is filled to the top with spoilers, you have been warned. Of the seven tracked choices I was with the majority only twice. I decided to tell Clem
The Walking Dead Episode 3 picks up the story of Lee, Clementine, and the rest of the small group of survivors shortly after the conclusion of Episode 2. Still living in a motor lodge our small band find themselves besieged by bandits. The situation goes from bad to worse with events unfolding that force them out on the road. Reviewing an episodic game in pieces is an odd proposition. So much stays the same from episode to episode and it stands to reason that if the first two of this five part game received high marks the third will as
There is always a risk in creating a “re-imagining” of a beloved franchise. The new game must be faithful to the story universe without tarnishing it, improve upon the original game’s mechanics without insulting them and most importantly – be fun. Wayforward and Majesco Entertainment have accomplished all three in Double Dragon Neon. The original beat ‘em up Double Dragon arrived in arcades 25 years ago with main characters Billy and Jimmy Lee fighting their way to save the lovely Marian. Today, in Double Dragon Neon, you pick up the mantle of the Lee brothers once again to save Marian.
In Mark of the Ninja Klei Entertainment has put together a slick and streamlined stealth action title that fans of the genre and new-comers alike will enjoy. Rather than forcing the player to figure out their path through trial and error like some entries in the stealth genre, Mark of the Ninja communicates very clearly what parts of your plan will and will not work. The 2D platform laden screen contains a glut of information aimed at streamlining what was once clumsy. Sonar-like pulses radiant from footsteps clearly showing what can be heard by your foes. The sight lines not
