Section 8 is traditionally a term that refers to members of the armed forces who are unfit for duty due to mental issues which in the past was grounds for a discharge from the military. Apparently in the future these crazy servicemen are Read the rest of this entry »
Telltale Games returns to the story of Guybrush Threepwood who is on a quest to find La Esponja Grande, save his wife Elaine from LeChuck and cure his infected hand from the Pox. Some of the questions you were left with in Chapter 1 will be answered. Who is the person on the ship with Guybrush at the end of Chapter 1? What is LeChuck doing with Elaine? Despite the answers to your current questions, the Siege of Spinner Cay is going to leave you with just as many unanswered questions and likely have you fishing for more clues.

He’s Guybrush Threepwood, Mighty Pirate. Of course you already knew that…..maybe. Telltale Games and Lucas Arts have teamed up to bring you a new story of Guybrush Threepwood’s adventures on the high seas of the Caribbean. In keeping with the story of the 1990 PC game the Secret of Monkey Island, Telltale has created a new swashbuckling story that will take Guybrush through 5 chapters (or episodes) of adventure and danger. The Launch of the Screaming Narwhal is the first chapter in the monthly series that will have five total chapters. If you are a fan of the previous games you’ll be pleasantly surprised to see the humor and personality are intact as well as the nostalgic references to the previous games.
On the story side of things you’ll find that unlike the Wallace and Gromit series these games are meant to played in order. The game takes about 5-6 hours to complete and each chapter is a small part of a bigger story that unfolds as you play. Yes, you will be left hanging and eagerly awaiting the next game to find out what happens or what something means. I won’t use a spoiler example, instead I’ll give you one that looks into the humor of the storytelling. When you are searching the island you come across a chest. Guybrush attempts to open it and he says he won’t be opening that in this episode. I WANNA KNOW WHAT IS IN THERE! Its name is the Chest of Foreshadowing which was kinda funny to me. Here’s a brief synopsis about the first episode.
The bees are gone and the weather has cleared. Telltale Games brings us the third installment in the Wallace and Gromit series with “Muzzled“. When a charity fair turns into a profit fair it’s up to Gromit to expose the operation and up to Wallace to help him out of the predicament he finds himself in and save the day. To me this was the best in the series and if you read a little further I’ll tell you why.
The storyline of this game was what put it up to the top of the series for me. To be completely fair, it could not have done it without the previous two episodes. It also wouldn’t have held this position if I hadn’t played the first two. I said in the last review that it didn’t matter which order you played them in. While the games still stand well enough on their own, I think the full experience will come from playing them in order or at least by playing Episode Two before Three.
Welcome back as Telltale Games revisits 62 West Wallaby Street. We now find Wallace and Gromit set and ready to take a much needed vacation… that is until the rain changes their plans and gives Wallace an idea. Wallace decides to cash in on the misfortune of the rain by bringing the beach to his basement and inviting the town to join in on the fun. This seems like a good idea at first. A few oversights and set of dogs that have a knack for puttiong on a show for their owner complicate things. Wallace then finds himself frantically trying to please his guests so they don’t leave the resort and force him to refund the money he’s already spent. Once the woes of each guest are sorted out, one of them is attacked. No one is going anywhere until the perps are brought to justice. It’s obvious who did it. Although, it’s not obvious just how you are going to prove it.
The DC Universe MMORPG will be playable on the PC & PS3. It feels like City of Heroes,but with a bigger budget.
Telltale Games first installment of their episodic gaming experience is one of a kind. It’s a wild ride through West Wallaby Street and Wallace has a vision and all the gadgets to make some money. It’s up to you to figure out how to clean up the mess along the way.
To get the basics out of the way I’ll give you quick rundown of the series. Grand Adventures is going to be a total of 4 separate games. Each game stands on its own but relates to the others much like a TV series. Each game will star the main characters along with some new ones. So think of it like you are the star in your own television series. I’d recommend checking out our podcast with Telltale games to get the scoop. Read the rest of this entry »
