The Wolf Among Us: Episode Three – A Crooked Mile

The Wolf Among Us - Episode Three: A Crooked Mile

It’s taken a little while, but Telltale Game’s follow-up to the moderately successful first episode of The Wolf Among Us is here. Unless you bought the season pass on Xbox 360, then you had to wait for a free download code to be sent to accounts who bought it days later in order to play it. The point and click Adventure game’s next part, Episode Three: A Crooked Mile, picks up right where the last one left off, taking the decisions you made then and spinning them to fit the general story line of this new experience. But is this a tale full of twists and turns you’ll remember when the third makes it way out, or is it just a way to spread the title out? Warning, this review may contain spoilers, but I am trying to avoid revealing as much as I can.


South Park: The Stick of Truth

South Park: The Stick of Truth

Since South Park: The Stick of Truth was first announced at E3, fans have been patiently waiting to get their hands on what promised to be one of the best games in the franchise’s history. Over the years, the title received plenty of delays, and was even announced to be censored over seas due to some of the questionable material. This, however, only made fans like myself want this game more, but also worry that it may end up cut down here in North America as well. Finally, after many set backs and much waiting, The Stick of Truth is finally upon us. Is it everything the game promised, or is this just another generic entry into the long line of mediocre titles?


LocoCycle (2014)

LocoCycle

Back when the Xbox One was still a distance away from release, Twisted Pixel announced it’s first venture into the the next-gen party with the Xbox One title LocoCycle. It was met with a great deal of interest by fans of the developer, and for good reason. With hits such as The Maw and Splosion Man, how could you not expect a fun time? The title originally dropped late November of 2013, and was met with mixed reactions, mostly going on about how repetitive the game can get. However, for Valentine’s Day of 2014, Twisted Pixel managed to bring the game to the Xbox 360’s Live Arcade and the Steam marketplace for all to enjoy. Does this entry running on PC and the current generation of console gaming hardware make for a drastic downgrade, or will those who haven’t had the chance to cross the generation gap have nearly the same experience?


Rekoil: Liberator

Rekoil: Liberator

Rekoil is a new First Person shooter from indie developer Plastic Piranha. The game was first released on PC as Rekoil, while the Xbox Live Arcade port added the Liberator to the title. This is part of the Steam Greenlight program as well, and was eventually picked up for distribution through 505 Games. But is this a fresh new title for hardcore multiplayer gamers everywhere, or is it just another generic indie flop?

Pac-Man Championship Edition DX (Windows Phone)

Pac-Man Championship Edition DX

Following the success of the Pac-Man Championship Edition titles on the digital marketplaces of Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, Namco Bandai have developed a version for use on the Windows Phone. At first it’s hard to picture a game like this being adapted to touch screen game dynamics, and given the high cost, it become a rather risky move for those who grew up on the man of Pac. But does this new version translate well to mobile gaming devices, or is this new interpretation all glitz and glamour that you’ll regret buying?
