The Walking Dead has been an impactful franchise for some time. What started as a powerful, and gritty, comic, became a super popular TV show. One that even got its own spinoff series not based on the books. But more than that, because of how the world is in Walking Dead, there’s always potential for new stories. Thus, when TellTale Games started making their own Walking Dead game, with their own unique story, many were intrigued. Fast forward a few seasons and a spinoff later, and we’re now on the third season of TellTale’s Walking Dead. While this is my first foray into TellTale’s game world, and even the Walking Dead technically, I have to say that The New Frontier will intrigue those familiar with the series, and those who are new to it.
There’s a special present coming your way this Thanksgiving, and it’s far from a turkey. Batman: The Telltale Series Chapter 4: Guardians of Gotham will premiere on PC and consoles in four days. To prove it, here’s the new trailer:
The legend goes that in the heyday of arcades, a mysterious cabinet called Polybius was tested in Portland, OR. It made many people who played it ill, and men in black suits were seen collecting data from it before it disappeared. As someone who lives in Portland, I’m rather skeptical….there was parental paranoia about arcades back then, and when you combine this with our local overactive media, a game that fried people’s minds would have blanketed the news for weeks. If it had happened, we would have known!
There are countless mods, hacks and unofficial sequels of Mario’s 2D games floating around the Web. But past the point when the series moved to 3D, not so much. It’s a lot trickier to rearrange the elements of a level made of polygons than it is to alter one made of pixels and sprites. However, it CAN be done.
BadLand Games and Infinigon present Zenith, a hilarious action RPG launching today on PlayStation 4 and Steam as a digital download and on PlayStation 4 and PC as a boxed edition. To celebrate the game’s launch, the Steam version will include a 20% discount for a limited time. In Zenith, you play as Argus, a thirty something wizard who’s needed for one final job: protecting a powerful artifact from angsty heroes with too much free time, too many oversized swords, and a “chosen one” complex that would make Neo blush.
The hugely popular Telltale Games title featuring Batman is about to get even bigger, as the second chapter is set to hit Steam and consoles on September 20th. To bring more hype to the second episode, the official trailer for “Children Of Arkham” has arrived. You can check that and the synopsis below:
Those who haven’t played Blizzard’s intensely popular shooter yet will have their chance next weekend when the game will be available to download and play for no charge. Starting from September 9 and running to September 12, players can download the game and play it on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Reviewing the latest Worms release can often be a tricky task. After all, Team17 has been creating games in this series for almost 20 years and despite all the significant changes they have made in the intervening years, such as forays into 3D, different worm classes and adding new water-based physics, most fans simply want a return to the good old days of Worms Armageddon. So while the last few instalments in the series may have missed the mark somewhat, the developers seem to have gone back to their roots with Worms W.M.D in an attempt to create the ultimate 2D artillery game.
Recently, a huge collection of classic Sierra games, such as Police Quest and Gabriel Knight, made their way to Steam. Now players can get their hands on dozens of the titles thanks to the latest Humble Bundle.

“There are some technical differences, but it’s basically the same game,” Blow told IGN. “I feel like that would kind of… mess up the game,” he continued.
