Game Review: The Walking Dead – A New Frontier – Episode Five

the_walking_dead_a_new_frontierHoly cow. There are no words I can really say to describe the finale of Telltale’s The Walking Dead: A New Frontier. It was a great episode that brought great moments for the season and delivered a solid ending open for more.

Like my previous reviews, I can only speak from my own playthrough and the path I chose for the characters. Note that there will be spoilers below so read at your own risk.

Game Review: The Walking Dead – A New Frontier – Episode Four

6gaflz21And so another episode has graced us players once again. The penultimate episode of Telltale’s Walking Dead: A New Frontier, “Thicker than Water, had everything that was expected of a Telltale game. There were small improvements with the gameplay and Telltale released the game on time (unlike the previous episode) so I call that a win.

Spoiler alert for those who dare to enter!

Game Review: The Walking Dead – A New Frontier – Episode Three

wdanf303logoskeyart-1490290752538_1280wAfter waiting for Above the Law to be released to Playstation Disc Players, I finally got to play the latest episode of The Walking Dead: A New Frontier over the weekend. Issues actually getting the episode to download aside, I think this episode further adds to the drama and tension between all the characters.

It’s definitely a big improvement from the previous episode but since (technically) more than half of the game is released, there are some small observations I’ve noticed in my playthrough.

Game Review: The Walking Dead – A New Frontier – Episode One

twd_s3_coverWith episode three only a week away, I decided to finally get my hands on the latest installment of Telltale’s Walking Dead series and delve into the world once more. The first episode Ties That Bind Us: Part One sets up an entirely new story with a new cast of characters alongside some familiar faces. I was surprised at how fast the episode had progressed however, it’s a great addition to a rich, diverse universe.

Game Review: A King’s Tale – Final Fantasy XV

After putting it off for quite some time, I finally got around to playing A King’s Tale: Final Fantasy XV. It’s a nifty little 2D beat ’em up side scroller which is set 30 years prior to the main game. Even though it’s only been a day or so since I started playing, it’s a nice break from the open world of Final Fantasy XV and brings a sense of nostalgia for me playing in 2D again.

Parallels Between Film and Games: Logan, The Walking Dead: Season One and The Last of Us

logan-walking-dead-last-of-us

Running from the hype that is Logan, there are two other stories that come to mind after watching the movie.

At its core, these stories revolve around a tough man with some issues forced to look after a young female child in a post-apocalyptic world and eventually become their father-figure. What I want to highlight is how Logan parallels to these games – even if it’s a stretch. Because why not.
