Anynone else playing any of the Telltale Games?   I grabbed The Wolf Among Us several months back and really enjoyed that.  Now playing one of the Walking Dead games now and am enjoying that as well.  Has anyone tried some of their other games?

I also only played the wolf among us and the first walking dead, finished that one.  I only got half way through walking dead 2 and they're on 3 now.  I want to check out the batman game but other things are on my list ahead of it.  They're all pretty much the same though, if you played one you pretty much played them all, they share the same gameplay mechanics.

I played Sam & Max S1 and Jurassic Park and enjoyed both. JP was not very well received critically, but I (gasp) liked it more than the films.

      The Wolf Among Us 2 re-announced by Telltale, first game is free on Epic Store
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      During The Game Awards 2019 ceremony today, the newly revived Telltale Games crew dropped a surprise trailer for The Wolf Among Us 2. There isn't much to glean from the trailer, except we see that Bigsby and Snow are returning for a new adventure, and Wolf's dark side is needed this time.

      Some may remember the game was already announced a couple of years ago when the original Telltale was active, being developed alongside new Batman and The Walking Dead titles. However, while the other two games saw the light of day, the studio shuttered before the new season of The Wolf Among Us finished development.

      A release date for The Wolf Among Us 2 wasn't announced today, but it will be coming to PC first while a console release will arrive later. The PC version will be Epic Games Store exclusive. Speaking of the store, the original The Wolf Among Us is free to claim on it until December 19.

      Meanwhile, the new Telltale is also releasing Batman Shadows Edition, as well as re-releasing Batman: The Telltale Series with some enhancements like a noir visual style, graphics enhancements, and some extra content. This is slated to land today on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch for $29.99. Those who already own the original game can add the new version's enhancements with a $4.99 DLC pack.

      Telltale Games is returning with new owners
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Telltale Games, the studio known for its episodic adventure games, shut down abruptly last year, laying off most of its staff and even removing its catalog from stores. However, all is not lost, as a new company, LCG Entertainment, has now acquired the remaining Telltale key assets, technology, trademarks, as well as intellectual properties for re-releases and new entries.

      Some staff from the original studio is returning for this new venture as well, both as contractors and as full-time employees. The new studio is set up in Malibu, California, and it is expected to stay compact for the next six months or so.

      The new company is led by Jamie Ottilie and Brian Waddle. Athlon Games will be serving as the publishing and marketing partner for the new company as gaming industry veterans Chris Kingsley, Lyle Hall, Tobias Sjögren come in as investors.

      During an interview with Polygon, Ottilie has said that although some franchise rights like The Walking Dead and Stranger Things are now under other companies or with the original owners, the new Telltale has acquired the right to sell hits such as The Wolf Among Us and Batman, alongside original Telltale-made experiences. See the full list here.

      "All of us were big fans of the games Telltale created, as we strongly believe in games as a storytelling medium and nobody did it better," said Jamie Ottilie, CEO of the new Telltale Games. "Even now, when you see a game with strong narrative, it’s always compared to Telltale, so it’s no surprise that players and industry colleagues alike mourned the studio’s closure. We believe there is still so much life to the brand and its franchises, and we look forward to building upon the company’s storytelling legacy."

      It seems as though we can expect some of the removed Telltale titles to return to storefronts in the near future. As for any sequels or new games the company will be developing, Ottilie has confirmed the episodic format will remain a feature, but hopes to change up the pacing.

      Minecraft: Story Mode games to be pulled from stores, may be inaccessible afterward
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      It has been over six months since Telltale Games' closed its doors, and its effects are still being felt. The two Minecraft: Story Mode adventure games that Telltale developed based on Microsoft's sandbox giant are the newest casualties.

      An announcement posted on Minecraft.net today confirmed Minecraft: Story Mode - A Telltale Games Series, Season 1 and 2, will be pulled from almost all platforms on June 25. The named platforms were the following:

      Microsoft Windows macOS Xbox 360 Xbox One PlayStation 3 PlayStation 4 PlayStation Vita Nintendo Switch Wii U Android iOS Alarmingly, the message's wording suggests even those who own the games won't be able to download them after the delisting procedure, with the announcement urging players multiple times to download the episodes before they are discontinued. Those hoping to pick up physical copies will be out of luck as well, since they only carry Episode 1, and require players to download the rest.

      It's unclear how this new development will affect the Steam versions of the games, as they are still playable by owners even though they are not purchasable since last year. Usually, Steam games remain attached to user accounts even when they are removed from the store.

      However, the delisting announcement does not mention Netflix, where the first five episodes of Season 1 exists as a streamable game.

      The Walking Dead: The Final Season is now Epic Games Store exclusive to new buyers
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      The final chapter in The Walking Dead game series is set to continue releasing the rest of its episodes in 2019 under Robert Kirkman's Skybound Games studio. However, while the upcoming third episode was confirmed for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch platforms under the new management, no information was shared regarding the PC version, until now.

      In a new announcement today, Skybound revealed that the PC version is now exclusive to the new Epic Games Store. However, note that this does not apply to previous purchases. Anyone who's already bought the full game on another PC service, such as Steam, will still receive the rest of the episodes through those mediums for no extra charge, only those who wish to purchase a new copy will have to go through the Epic Games Store.

      In a joint statement, Skybound Games CEO Ian Howe and President of Interactive Dan Murray added the following regarding the new partnership:

      With the platform now locked down, The Walking Dead: The Final Season's third episode, Broken Toys, will release for PC through the Epic Games Store on January 15, 2019 alongside consoles. Epic's collection of platform exclusives continue to grow, which currently also include Journey, Hades, and Ashen among others, and this is probably just the beginning.

      The Walking Dead: The Final Season returns with 'Episode 3 - Broken Toys' in January
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      The closing season of Telltale's The Walking Dead series will officially be returning to life early next year under Skybound Games. The studio, owned by the original Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, has released a new teaser trailer announcing the January 15 release date of 'Episode 3: Broken Toys'.

      While this is a new studio, the game's development team remains largely the same as it was when The Final Season was progressing under Telltale Games. Aiming to give the series a proper conclusion, Skybound managed to hire back many developers from the original team that were laid off from when Telltale began closing its doors earlier this year.

      Skybound is also honoring previous purchases, meaning those who have already bought the season won't need to fork over anything extra to receive the remaining two episodes when they launch.

      Oddly, while Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch store pages are now back up and offering the game for purchase again, the Steam version - which now has Skybound Games listed as publisher - remains lacking a way to buy it. Moreover, PC isn't listed as a platform on the game's homepage or in the new teaser trailer.

      The studio seems to be working on this, however, with it tweeting out that "More news for future PC purchases to come soon."
