I dunno. Seems pretty trustworthy to me.

As I write this, I’ve just finished a playthrough of Telltale’s The Wolf Among Us, which means now you get to read what I think about it. (If you like.) While I didn’t hate the game, I’m finding it a tricky one to recommend. I enjoyed season one of The Walking Dead tremendously, and it made me very hopeful for what that game’s style could do when applied to other stories. And it works when applied to Fables! Sort of. Sometimes.

For every part of Wolf I really liked, there was some other part I really didn’t. I think there’s some interesting characters here, they just don’t always have interesting things to do. For every time that the plot moves in a really interesting direction, it also sort of plods off on some weird tangent that neither builds tension nor moves things forward. The action scenes sometimes look REALLY cool… and sometimes are overly long and very tedious.

Ultimately, I guess what I’m trying to say is that I like what it’s trying to be more than what it actually is. I don’t have a blanket “this game good, go go go buy” like I would with that first season of The Walking Dead, but Wolf is far from a bad game.  If you’re interested in a relatively by-the-numbers noir murder mystery framed in an interesting setting, it could be for you.

None of which was particularly funny. Sometimes I write about video games. Uh. I suppose you could always make a fart noise with your hands? That always make me laugh. (Seriously. It does. I think I have a condition or something.)
