As you may recall from my last review of a Telltale game, I was pretty excited to keep up with the story based on what I played.
With that said, I have yet to play another episode of The Wolf Among Us, haha. I know, I’m ashamed, but it’s not because I didn’t want to! I was just waiting for the collection on PS4. See, it released during the console transition and I knew I wanted it on my new system. So despite my urge to play it, I gave into patience. Now, I’m just waiting for a good sale.
But that was then. Fast forward to today and Telltale not only released the first episodes of 2 very different series (the other being Tales from the Borderlands), they did it on the same day. Many worried they’re stretching themselves thin. That they’re trying to pump out content knowing how successful their formula is, and what they’re putting out won’t have that level of quality they’re known for. Well if it’s any indication, after playing the first episode of Game of Thrones, I’m here to tell you there is absolutely no need for concern. They know what they’re doing.
It seems like it snuck up on us, didn’t it? I mean, I remember getting excited at the announcement of a Game of Thrones series by Telltale. Now here we are, right smack in the middle of the busiest time of year for a gamer. The time when there’s so much out there you want to play, and so little time to play it, you’re seriously upset every Tuesday when there’s something new in the stores.
But don’t get mad here! This is just an episode of a Telltale series after all. So you can count on it being great, cheap, and short. Whether you’re on a budget and haven’t bought anything, or if you’re lucky and got all the majors releases, $5 isn’t really a lot. And at about 2.5 hours, it’s the perfect way to take a break from something like Dragon Age like I did.
Anyway, I’m sure you’re wanting to hear about it, huh? Where to begin..
