Games, Franchises, and Experiences We Want in VR

Resident Evil 7 is proving to be quite the virtual reality masterpiece, with 10% of registered players across all platforms choosing to play in PlayStation VR. While playing for our review, I played for eight hours straight in VR, happy that virtual reality is getting longer triple-A experiences. As I was playing, I couldn’t help but think what the success of Resident Evil 7 could be paving the way for in the future of VR. In fact, certain segments within the game sparked ideas for what I wanted to see, setting off the series of ideas you see below. Don’t worry, it’s not just a bunch of horror games I want adapted into VR, though those dark experiences do make up their fair share of the list. We’ve also added some games that are visual masterpieces, as well as experiences that are improved through the intimate immersion of PlayStation VR. With such a fascinating platform, I’m hoping that developers take the initiative to take some risks and continue to develop unique experiences for PlayStation VR. If any developer wants to skim off the ideas we have below, fell free. We here at PlayStation LifeStyle think these would make for stellar READ…

The Walking Dead: A New Frontier Episode 3 Isn’t Releasing This Month

After launching two episodes in December, which put them “at a slightly unusual rollout,” Telltale Games has revealed that The Walking Dead: A New Frontier Episode 3 won’t be released this month. Asked on Twitter about the release date of Episode 3, Telltale’s Job Stauffer said, “Won’t be this month, should let folks down easy on that – but we hope to have news in February. Big episode! Worth the wait.” Stauffer also revealed that Telltale is “working in a lot of fan feedback for Ep 3,” and “Clem has an Ep3 scene that literally broke me.” In a separate tweet, Stauffer appears to have given a small status update on their Guardians of the Galaxy game, which GameStop says should be out around April. “On the sci-fi/spacey side of things, seeing a lot of awesomeness coming together more & more quickly now. Cannot WAIT to share 1st looks!” Stauffer tweeted. Featuring Episodes 1 and 2, as well as access to the remaining three episodes as they become available, The Walking Dead: A New Frontier Season Pass Disc will be available through retailers in February for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

GameStop Lists Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy for April 2017

[embedded content] Announced at The Game Awards last month, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series could be releasing in April 2017, if a GameStop listing is to be believed. According to the product listing, the Guardians of the Galaxy Season Pass Disc will release on April 25 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Since Telltale sometimes releases the first episode digitally before the full Season Pass Disc (The Walking Dead: A New Frontier premiered in December and the retail release is out in February), it’s possible Episode 1 of Guardians of the Galaxy will be available in late March or early April through digital stores. GameStop also included the description for Guardians of the Galaxy in their listing: Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series delivers a brand new story of the universe’s unlikeliest heroes, the rag-tag band of outlaws who go by the names Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and Groot. In the wake of an epic battle, the Guardians discover an artifact of unspeakable power. Each of the Guardians has a reason to desire this relic, as does a ruthless enemy who is the last of her kind, and who will stop at nothing to tear it from their hands.

10 IPs That Would Make Great Telltale Games (That We’ll Probably Never See)

10 IPs That We Wish Telltale Could Tackle Telltale Games has just recently released The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – A New Frontier, the third part of the series that arguably propelled Telltale Games into the spotlight. In addition to The Walking Dead, Telltale Games has also been hard at work on stories from other franchises ranging from Batman, Borderlands, and Minecraft to the recently announced Guardians of the Galaxy. Here, we will look at some franchises we would love to see Telltale Games work on that we probably never, ever will. This list does not take into account how realistic these options are, they are simply a list of titles we think fans of Telltale’s work would enjoy. Let’s get into it!   10 – Star Trek The Star Trek franchise has legions of fans of various mediums and eras and a proper Star Trek Telltale series would stir up a lot of interest. With a variety of characters and casts to choose from, Telltale would be able to craft their story as they see fit; in fact, they could even come up with their own cast and adventures. Star Trek would certainly be an interesting series given

The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – A New Frontier: Ep. 1 & 2 Review – Gripping, Intense and Brilliant

The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – A New Frontier: Ep. 1 & 2 Review Telltale’s been very busy, with Tales from the Borderlands, Minecraft, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, and very recently, Guardians of the Galaxy. What began as a tiny developer/publisher has grown far beyond what anyone could’ve expected in such a short span of time. However, I haven’t experienced any of Telltale’s recent projects, as The Walking Dead is what I’ve been clamoring for. After Season Two’s nail-biting finale, Clementine’s fate begged for a continuation, leaving followers desperate for more. Unlike Season Two’s slow build, A New Frontier leaves you gutted by the first Episode, opening in the thick of a family falling to the apocalypse. Telltale’s hubs are the only moments of peace throughout, every moment in-between has layers of tension, even when there’s not a walker in sight. ______________________________ “The tight script knows precisely when to lighten the atmosphere, put you on edge, and kick you in the teeth, leaving you distraught, and yet hungry for the next installment.” Utilizing the same small set of mechanics seen since The Walking Dead’s debut, it’s a blessing that A New Frontier’s writing is

Batman The Telltale Series Ep. 5: City of Light Review – Brutal Nuance (PS4)

[embedded content]This review will contain spoilers for all previous episodes and the current episode of Batman The Telltale Series. Here are our previous reviews for episode 1, episode 2, episode 3, and episode 4. Everything has been leading to this. Bruce Wayne discovering dark secrets about his family’s past. Vicki Vale’s hidden agenda as the Rogue’s Gallery’s newest villain. Cobbelpot’s betrayal of a childhood friend. Dent’s… well, I’m not quite sure what the hell happened with Dent. City of Light is the conclusion to the season, and after a slow first half, Batman The Telltale Series has been moving with an impetuous resolve towards the end. The biggest question throughout the series is about what Bruce Wayne will be willing to sacrifice to save his city from those that threaten to burn it to the ground? In City of Light, that question will be put to the test. The opening of episode five is different depending on if you chose to go after Penguin or Two-Face at the end of episode four. No matter which one you chose, sacrificing Bruce Wayne’s assets or Batman’s tech, the opening wraps up each of these seemingly massive decisions quite concisely. Either Dent fails to actually…
