The Wolf Among Us Episode 3 Arrives Tuesday April 8 Which, if Anything, Proves That Telltale is Finally Sticking to a Schedule

The-Wolf-Among-Us-Episode-3

As a company, I freaking love Telltale Games and, hell, even enjoy the episodic format that they chose to release their games in. However, one of the things that bugs me about them and the format is how, more often than not, we have no idea when to expect the next episode of a given game. We might get one episode of something one week, and not see the next one for upwards of three months (something that happened with both The Walking Dead: The Video Game and The Wolf Among Us.) Or we might get an episode, finish it, and then have the next one come out in about a month's time (something that happened with The Walking Dead: The Video Game only.) At first it was frustrating to not know when to expect the continuations of the incredible stories of their wonderful games, but now it seems like Telltale has finally created a routine for its episodic releases, at least if the new one for The Wolf Among Us' next episode is any indication.

Amazon Unveils Fire TV, A Streaming Device/Game Console That Will Do Everything That Your Other Streaming Devices/Game Consoles Already Do

Amazon-Fire-TV

Well now's a good a time as any to express my disdain for set-top streaming devices—I just don't see the point in them. Half a decade ago when Netflix was something you could only watch on your desktop computer they were handy, but now we live in a world in which I can watch a Netflix Instant film on like half a dozen different devices. So why then would I shell out $100+ for something that only does that one thing? And with a wide majority of people owning gaming consoles from Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo (which all play pretty much every major streaming service out there), why pony up the cash for something that only does ONE thing? I never understood it, and never understood why people would buy Roku's and Chromecast's or what have you when literally dozens of other common household gadgets can do the exact same thing. Hell, most TV sets now a days include native Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon integrated right into the system! But despite this, I guess some find there's still to be money mined from set-top streaming devices, and another big name has entered into the fray: Amazon and their Fire TV.

The Wolf Among Us Episode 2 Review: “Smoke & Mirrors”

This review is 100% spoiler free, so feel free to read without worrying, even if you haven't played Episode 1 or 2 yet. If you visit this website often enough, you might notice we do a lot of TV reviews. Like, an abhorrent amount of them. It’s our bread and butter, so to speak, and not out of any other reason than pure circumstance. We have a decent sized staff, we all watch and love TV, and we all review at least one show. And that adds up, which means a constant stream of TV reviews. Now, the reason I bring this up in a video game review (hold on, I’m getting to it) is that I’ve structured this entire review like a review of a typical TV episode, from the title all the way down to the score. Why would I ever do something like this? Disgracing one medium to pander to another? Attempting to reach a certain demographic? Or just sheer lunacy?
