“Life is Strange, Episode 3: Chaos Theory” Review

“Life is Strange, Episode 3: Chaos Theory” Review

Without spoiling anything, it felt like Episode 2 of Life is Strange either ended with you falling into a bottomless pit, or you simply hitting rock bottom. Episode 3 marks the beginning of the ascension from that fall, only to find that the land above that pit isn’t familiar at all. What Is It? Life […]

Marvel and Telltale Games: Theorizing the Possibilities

Marvel and Telltale Games: Theorizing the Possibilities

This week, Marvel announced they will be partnering with the episodic game wizards over at Telltale Games for a new project in 2017. That’s about it.

But nothing quite captured such a strong audience like Star Wars Battlefront. […]
