Video Game Review: The Walking Dead: A New Frontier – Thicker than Water (PS4, 2017) is Telltale at their very best

Perhaps I was a little harsh in my review of Above the Law. If Telltale’s Walking Dead games were judged on their level of interaction, then they would probably garner average scores across the board. I still maintain that the last episode served as a major turning point and definitely felt like the culmination of what has been in motion for quite a while – Telltale might finally be ‘settling in’, at least with their Walking Dead games. This might be their MO going forward, but while Thicker than Water didn’t quite make me eat my words it certainly got me to substitute  them with more favourable ones. To simplify, maybe I finally ‘get it’.

Video Games Review: Guardians of The Galaxy: The Telltale Series Ep 1 – Tangled Up In Blue (Xbox One, 2017)

Telltale Games is back, baby! I know, they seem to be back every few months but this time they’re bringing the flavour of the month — Guardians of The Galaxy! This is a story based not on the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s band of misfits but directly from the pages of their long-running comic book.

Following last episodes tragic conclusion, Ties That Bind: Part II opened fairly solemnly in comparison. But that was about the quietest the second instalment got as it rounded out its two hour play time with twists and healthy does of action.

Video Game Review: The Walking Dead: A New Frontier – Ties That Bind: Part I (PS4, 2017)

Lets face it. While Telltale’s three-part Michonne series was an enjoyable enough romp, it could be argued that it’s existence served as a means to placate gamers until the main event rolled along. Because for all of Telltale’s impressive takes on pop culture’s most iconic franchises (Game of Thrones, Minecraft, Batman) their Walking Dead games are unequivocally their premier product.
