The Walking Dead VS Life is Strange

Life is Strange and The Walking Dead are similar in that they both provide choices that greatly effect the story. In both Life is Strange and The Walking Dead, the line between right and wrong gets blurred. In Alishia Karabinus’ article “Life is… Tough”, she talks about how a game should challenge “our boundaries and perceptions, and the things we take for granted, a game that … Continue reading The Walking Dead VS Life is Strange

The Walking Dead S1 E3 Decisions

SPOILERS I’ve already played Episode 1 and Episode 2. This episode starts out with Kenny and Lee searching for supplies, and then a woman comes out of nowhere and starts screaming and ruining everything.

The Player/Character relationship with Lee (The Walking Dead)

With most games you have some sort of relationship with the “hero”. Telltale’s The Walking Dead is no different. The player either feels like they’ve become the character, became the sidekick, or a God to the character, controlling their every move. With Lee, I feel as though I am him, and also playing God. There are some instances in the gameplay where I think, “No, … Continue reading The Player/Character relationship with Lee (The Walking Dead)

Bully-Reality Check of the Gameplay

SPOILERS Bully is basically a game where you.. well… become a bully. You go through the game trying to get all of the clicks (the nerds, jocks, preps, greasers, and the bullys) to be on your side, through tasks and fights etc. But then there’s a twist that ends up making you fight Gary, the first “friend” you made in the game. Bully is a mission-based/ … Continue reading Bully-Reality Check of the Gameplay

The Walking Dead S1 E1 Decisions

SPOILERS I have played this game once before, and am trying to choose different options. I am also playing the game on my IPad, which makes the quick-time events easier in my opinion. First, let’s talk about the opening of the game. I loved how the background story and a tutorial was put into one.
