On Another Level: The Walking Dead “All That Remains” review

Platform: PS3, Xbox 360, Windows
Developer: Telltale
Publisher: Telltale
Score: 9/10
Contains spoilers for both seasons

The long awaited second season to one of my most beloved games came out a few weeks ago, and although this review is late I still have so much to say about this introductory episode. The first season felt like a game without that much attention placed on it, until people randomly started playing it and began speaking of it highly. The Walking Dead game snowballed significantly in such a short time due to many factors within media. For one, the show on AMC being as popular as it was, paved the way by intriguing gamers with the allure of a strategic point and click.

Now if you haven’t played the first season of the game, you should stop reading this now and go get on that. This article will contain only the most major of spoilers past this point. You have been warned.

On Another Level: Dead Rising 3 review

Platform: Xbox One
Developer: Capcom Vancouver
Publisher: Microsoft Studios
Chelsea’s Score: 8.5/10
[Contains minor spoilers]

Zombies are everywhere. On your television, your big screens, and even lately some marathons pit you against the living dead as you run a 5k. When it comes to videogames, there is a really large chance that in-game enemies will be some sort of undead variation. Lately, they are oversaturating the market and probably tiring out a lot of gamers. That’s not the case when it comes to the third installment in the Dead Rising series.

TellTale Games The Wolf Among Us solidifies TellTale as one of the finest storytellers in the industry. 

Platforms: Microsoft Windows, XBOX 360, PS3

TellTale Games latest episodic series may have done away with the gore and shambling of the undead but one thing that is certainly still front and center is storytelling and character, in ways that few games manage to produce.

Telltale’s Poker Night 2 just recently became available for PC, PS3 and XBOX 360. Has anyone else gotten to dabble into it yet?
 You play as a mute character, the other players like to tease and make fun of. The others? Brock Samson from The Venture Bros, Sam, from Sam & Max [Max is also there assisting Sam], Ash Williams from The Evil Dead and ClapTrap from the Borderlands series. The dealer is none other than GLaDOS from the Portal series, being her usual intimidating and insulting self. Mad Moxxi from the Borderlands series serves up drinks, but is ultimately silent the whole time. Buying the other characters in the game a drink, helps the likelihood of calling their bluffs or non-bluffs. Captain Reginald Van Winslow [Tales of Monkey Island] also makes an appearance as s casino chief.
That’s a lot of characters to name drop, huh? The game has been ridiculously humorous and engaging. The game allows you to have chances of winning items like in-game card decks, tabletop designs and chips. You also, depending on which platform you are playing on, have chances to win Borderlands 2 content, XBOX avatar items, PS3 themes and Team Fortress 2 items on Steam.
The game features two versions of poker, Texas Hold ‘Em and Omaha Hold ‘Em. Party Banter goes a long way, but some jokes are repeated and does lose charm eventually. 
An iOS version is also on it’s way, no date announced just yet.
Score: 8/10. Fun, simple and hilarious. Jokes eventually get stale.
