Tales From Borderlands Ep 2 Is What I've Wanted From Telltale For Ages

I've always said that the best thing about Telltale games isn't QTE-heavy action or near-pornographic dedication to depictions of bad things happening to good people. It's disarmingly intimate character moments. Tales from the Borderlands episode two is chock full of them. » 3/17/15 11:00am 3/17/15 11:00am

It's Impossible To Get Things Right In Game of Thrones Episode 2

Nothing's easy in Westeros. There are no simple decisions, no sure outcomes, and just when you think you've made the right call, something unexpected turns up and kills you. » 2/06/15 7:00pm 2/06/15 7:00pm

Are you having save-game trouble with Telltale's Game of Thrones? We've seen reports that Xbox One players are unable to carry over their choices from episode one, but I'm on Xbox One and didn't have any problems. If you've had issues, let us know. » 2/06/15 1:25pm 2/06/15 1:25pm

Game Of Thrones: TV Actors vs. Game Characters

Game of Thrones finally has a good video game series, with solid cameos by some of the TV show's most memorable ladies and gents, to boot. With episode two out, many of the major players—Jon Snow included—have made their polygonal debuts. But do they actually look... right? Let's find out. » 2/05/15 7:30pm 2/05/15 7:30pm

What Telltale Could Learn From Life is Strange

There was a time when "Telltale" was just a game studio. But over the last few years, fueled by the success of 2012 Game of the Year contender The Walking Dead, it's become shorthand for a whole genre. That genre is in desperate need of a viable competitor to spur Telltale to fix some annoying, perennial flaws. » 2/04/15 4:00pm 2/04/15 4:00pm

Hope you're ready for more tears. Episode Two of Telltale's Game of Thrones series will be out the first week of February for all platforms, the developer announced today. PS3/PS4/PC/Mac on Tuesday, February 3; Xbox 360/Xbox One on Wednesday, February 4; iOS/Android on Thursday, Ferbuary 5. Episode One was great, so… » 1/22/15 1:08pm 1/22/15 1:08pm

The Internet Reacts To Minecraft: Story Mode

Nobody expected Telltale to announce a "narrative driven" take on Minecraft this morning. Thing is, while seemingly everyone loves playing Minecraft, nobody is playing the game because of the story. That's exactly what's causing the partnership between Telltale and Minecraft to look like it's coming from left field. » 12/18/14 6:00pm 12/18/14 6:00pm

QTEs Don't Have To Suck

"Press X to not die." It's a gaming cliche at this point, one that many view as a symptom of lazy game design. Quick time events, as they're known, are glorified cut-scenes. Things happen, and we press buttons that don't really match up with the action on screen. They can be pretty bad. » 12/04/14 9:35pm 12/04/14 9:35pm

​Phew, The New Game of Thrones Game Is Actually Good

"There will never be a good Game of Thrones video game." For years, those words rang just as true as the Starks' promise of winter. Finally, it feels as though that's changed. » 12/02/14 11:00am 12/02/14 11:00am

Tales From The Borderlands Could've Been Awful, But It's Great

I'll admit, I went into Tales from the Borderlands with pretty low expectations. Don't get me wrong: I like a lot of things about the zany world in which Gearbox's Borderlands shooter series takes place, but it's good for... shooting. Tales is an all-story adventure game. Yikes, right? » 11/25/14 12:00pm 11/25/14 12:00pm

Finally, A Game of Thrones Video Game That Looks Worthy Of The Name

Could this be the first great Game of Thrones video game? It's premature to start praising Telltale's upcoming series before we've even gotten a chance to play it, but the stars seem to be aligning for this one. » 11/20/14 2:00pm 11/20/14 2:00pm

Images Of The New Game Of Thrones Game (Probably) Leak

Poor Game of Thrones hasn't had the best of luck with video games so far, but people are way more optimistic about Telltale's (The Walking Dead) upcoming take on the franchise. Over the weekend these images, reportedly of the as-yet-unseen game, appear to have leaked. As you can see, Cersei is not impressed. » 11/16/14 4:27pm 11/16/14 4:27pm

Hey, it's a familiar and awesome voice in the latest trailer for Tales of the Borderlands! Patrick Warburton—the dude best beloved for playing the live-action version of the Tick and voicing Brock Samson—will be part of the acting crew in Telltale-developed game spinning out of Gearbox' RPG shooter series. » 11/13/14 2:55pm 11/13/14 2:55pm

Walking Dead dev Telltale's first Game of Thrones game is coming "soon." The six episode series will focus on five characters from House Forrester, a family loyal to the Starks (aka Sean Bean and his extremely unlucky spawn) and will take you to places like King's Landing and The Wall. » 11/11/14 1:02pm 11/11/14 1:02pm

Telltale just released this trailer for the last episode in The Walking Dead Season Two, the second sequence in their lovely adventure series.

How Tales From The Borderlands Works

When it got announced at VGX at the end of last year, I don't think a lot of people knew what to expect. So it's a Borderlands game? Kind of? But in the style of the guys behind the emotionally-crippling The Walking Dead? Kind of? Despite being a fan of both games and developers, and despite being excited for this… » 6/17/14 1:30pm 6/17/14 1:30pm
