Review | Game of Thrones: Episode 4 – Sons of Winter

by Tyler Colpon May 27, 2015
To call a Game of Thrones episode, be it the HBO series or Telltale’s series, satisfying for its characters, is to introduce a thick layer of dread on what comes next. George R.R. Martin’s apprentices learned one thing very quickly: give them what they want and then tear it away from them. And, in-turn, the […]

What games could still learn from Gone Home

by Tyler Colpon May 25, 2015
I keep thinking about how important Gone Home is to games as a storytelling medium. It’s difficult to put in words because the way the game handles it is very matter-of-fact. There’s nothing special about the way Gone Home tells its story while you’re playing it, but when you step away and look at it […]

by Tyler Colpon May 20, 2015

The Trouble with Zombies part 2: Tan plays The Walking Dead Season II

by Charlie Grammeron April 16, 2015
First up was The Walking Dead: Season I, then came 400 Days packed in with it, and now we move on to continue Clementine’s story with The Walking Dead: Season II. Like the former games, this is a blind run, so I have no idea what will happen or the results of the choices made […]

Review | Game of Thrones Episode 3: The Sword in the Darkness

by Tyler Colpon March 25, 2015
“Words are wind, Asher. It’s choices that define who you are.” That’s a line plucked from the third episode of Telltale’s latest adventure game, Game of Thrones. The man who said this was nearly burned to death by a dragon when I chose not to rescue him instead of my long-time comrade. In a series […]
