GamerNode — The Walking Dead: Season 2, Episode 4 – Amid the Ruins Review

“Telltale Games is starting to develop an unhealthy pattern in the seasons of its adventure games. For some strange reason, the developer just can’t seem to put together a highly compelling fourth episode. Perhaps it’s just the unfortunate fact that this episode will always follow the high-intensity of the middle chapter and precede the climax that is the finale. But regardless of why it happens, The Walking Dead: Season 2, Episode 4 – Amid the Ruins has become its next victim.”

GamerNode — The Wolf Among Us: Episode 5 – Cry Wolf Review

“It’s been a long, winding road for Bigby Wolf in The Wolf Among Us. Enduring the scrutiny of the entire Fabletown community in a case wrought with dramatic twists and turns, things have finally come to an end here in Cry Wolf. And while some may have been frightened by the lack of development in the previous episode, In Sheep’s Clothing, I can assure them that it merely served as the setup to a grand finale befitting the game’s comic book and noir influences.”

GamerNode — The Walking Dead: Season 2, Episode 3 – In Harm’s Way Review

“It seems that Telltale Games always hits its stride and greatest excellence in The Walking Dead whenever a season’s third episode comes around. This was true last year with the incredibly depressing Long Road Ahead, and it makes sense, as these are the middle of each season’s overarching plot. And while In Harm’s Way doesn’t hit the emotional lows of last season’s third chapter, there are still plenty of other emotions amped up to 11 that make it yet another high watermark for the series.”

The Walking Dead: Season 2, Episode 1 – All That Remains Review

“Clementine has endured terrible hardships in the years since the dead began to rise in The Walking Dead. With her surrogate father and role model, Lee, now gone, those hardships are only getting worse in the first episode of the game’s second season,All That Remains, where I’m reunited with the child I’d fought so hard to protect in Season 1. After spending approximately two hours in the young girl’s shoes, I found Season 2’s beginning to provide a more memorable experience than its predecessor’s premiere, even if this season’s current narrative lacks as compelling a sense of purpose.”

Games of the Generation: LA Noire

“Toward the end of this seventh console generation, certain games emerged that dared to question just what makes a video game a video game. Though not as extreme a case as Heavy Rain, LA Noire is without a doubt one of the most notorious examples. The game’s insistence on a more story- and character-focused experience provided gameplay that harkened back to classic adventure titles made by LucasArts and Sierra Entertainment in the ’80s and ’90s, yet remained innovative enough to become something all its own.”
