When it comes to delivering top quality narrative driven games, few can match Telltale Games. The company has been on a roll over the past few years, and they show no signs of slowing down. Just ahead of San Diego Comic-Con, Telltale has announced new seasons for a number of its popular series. First up is Batman Season Two: The Enemy Within. The Riddler appears to be the main villain of the season. The Joker (known as John Doe in season one) will be appearing as well. Batman’s suit has been adjusted from the previous season. This is good since he looked too much like Midnighter in the first season. Batman will once again be voiced by the prolific Troy Baker. Expect the first episode of the season, Enigma, to launch on August 8 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Android and iOS versions will follow later this year.

Clementine has been with this series from the beginning, so I have no doubt Telltale is going to give her an emotionally powerful send-off. READ FULL STORY AT GEEK!

It looks like we’ll be seeing The Walking Dead coming to VR in the future, thanks to a new partnership between franchise owner Skybound Entertainment and game developer Skydance Interactive. The partnership will see the development of multiple original virtual reality games set within The Walking Dead universe. The first title birthed by the new partnership will be a VR game featuring a new setting and roster of characters. Instead of a conventional horror game, The Walking Dead VR will feature an “immersive narrative storytelling experience” with a “contextual interaction system” which will force players to make difficult and complex choices and live with their implications. The first The Walking Dead VR game is being developed in Unreal Engine and will be released on the PSVR and other VR platforms. No release date for the new VR experience has been announced though.

It’s painfully human but insufferably cliche. The season is ambitious in scope and underwhelming in execution, stumbling far more often than it succeeds. A New Frontier follows Javier García, a former baseball player turned survivor when the outbreak of a zombie plague forces him to look after his sister-in-law Kate and her two children, Gabe and Mariana. What starts as a simple tale of a family scrounging for survival builds into a story that has major repercussions for other characters and entire settlements. A New Frontier has a vastly different scale than The Walking Dead’s previous seasons. This is the largest the series has ever felt. The first two episodes, “Ties That Bind, Parts One and Two”, deftly manage to balance this growing scope with the series’ concern for individual people and their problems. It jumps from past to present, showing Javier’s life before the outbreak and focusing on his relationship with his…

3 Up, 3 Down December 2016 Edition December is usually a slower month for big game releases. Sure, you might see a couple AAA games at the beginning of the month but more often than not the mad rush tapers off by the time December rolls around. This is generally the time of the year when most gaming sites do their Game of the Year Awards and pump out enough Top 10 lists to make your head spin. By the time December drops, most of us gaming journalists are exhausted, burnt right out and some are just about ready to call it quits. Those of us who stick it out, usually re-charge over the holiday season and get ready for what is going to be an amazing year. Before we look ahead to 2017, let’s take a look at the best (3 Up) and worst games (3 Down) from the past month as we put 2016 in the books. The Best The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – A New Frontier: Ep. 1 & 2 It’s unfortunate this game won’t make any ‘best of the year’ lists because it arrived so late in the year but maybe it should.
