The land of Westeros from the Game of Thrones TV/book series isn't the nicest place to live, but there are a lot of fans who surely wouldn't mind visiting. The video game adaptation recently landed on iOS devices under the watchful eye of renowned development studio Telltale, maker of the astounding Walking Dead games, but is it a worthy addition to the property's storied mythos?
Somewhere in 1980s New York lives a hidden community of fairy-tale refugees, called Fables, who fled their homes centuries ago when they were invaded by the monstrous armies of a being called The Adversary. They've been living in the Big Apple since it was New Amsterdam, and in that time their old rivalries and grudges (as well as the stresses of day-to-day city life) have made them more than a little dysfunctional. The only creature tough enough to keep everyone in line (and safe from detection) is the Big Bad Wolf, who walks the streets in human form as Fabletown's sheriff, Bigby Wolf.
Last year Telltale Games almost single-handedly redefined the quality of narratives in video games with its universally acclaimed Walking Dead series, and today the studio announced what we can expect during its highly anticipated second season. There's not much to go on at the moment, but one thing's for sure--we'll now be seeing the story through the eyes of Clementine, the little girl protagonist Lee Everett sought to protect in Season 1.
It’s not clear, at this point, exactly what the second season of The Walking Dead will bring to the unassumingly brilliant adventure series. If the new add-on episode 400 Days is any indication, however, it’s going to be riveting — and possibly very different from Lee and Clementine's adventure in Season One.

Christmas Day is just around the corner, and that means one thing for iOS gamers: lots of new iOS owners. Why is that good news? Because companies are crawling over themselves to get a piece of this massive new influx of gamers. So while you might not see a ton of new games releasing this week, all the best older ones are on sale. Set aside some money this year and stock up on games for the next couple months.
When we last left off with Puzzle Agent star Nelson Tethers, he'd successfully reopened the eraser factory in the mysterious Scoggins, Minnesota, but had many unanswered questions. What happened to the missing foreman? What's going on with the creepy gnomes that Nelson kept seeing? And who is that astronaut who plagues his dreams? Puzzle Agent 2 gets closer to answering these questions, but creates a host of new ones in the process. No one ever said being a puzzle agent was going to be easy.
Strong Bad, the lucha-libre-masked antagonist of the Homestar Runner series of Internet cartoons has a simple task in Telltale’s game: knock the snot out of Homestar Runner. If you think this should be an easy task for an evil wrestler, think again. His adventures will take you through castles, conga lines, and kitchen cabinets, all in the name of great villainy. It’s been a while since Strong Bad has graced our computer screens and we were a little worried that his insulting songs and constant bragging might have lost some of their charm, but simply put, they haven’t.
In honor of winter being cold and chilly and a small blizzard beginning to fall outside my apartment, Telltale Games has announced its "Best of iPad Celebration Sale". Here, four of the company's best-reviewed iPad titles have been priced down 40% from $6.99 each to $2.99 through Tuesday, February 10.
What do you get when you cross the eccentricity of Pink Panther’s Jacques Clouseau with the inquisitiveness of Twin Peaks’ Dale Cooper? You get Nelson Tethers, the charismatic protagonist of Telltale’s new point-and-click adventure, Puzzle Agent. Tethers is the only employee of the FBI’s neglected Puzzle Research Division, and his first real field assignment is to head to Scoggins, Minnesota, and solve the mystery of an eraser factory’s sudden stop in production. This small town is peculiarly obsessed with puzzles, so it’s up to Tethers to wade through the lot of them and finally figure out what’s happened to the town’s only industry.
