I used to play all of the Telltale games, but finally got to a point where I was burnt out on them – it even happened before, and then I felt a spurt of interest when Game of Thrones and Tales of the Borderlands launched, but after playing through the first episode of each, even though I enjoyed them, I didn’t feel the urge to play more. When it comes to the second season of The Walking Dead, I had played the first episode, then around the time I was playing those other games played the second episode, but again, I just didn’t continue with it – and let me add that I’ve always played all Telltale games on iPad. With the entire season 2 becoming available as one of the free PS+ titles this month, I decided to start episode 3, and not only am I having a good time playing it, but I quite like playing it on a TV screen (on PS4). I’m going to at least play though all of season 2, and then we’ll see if I still want to play more and jump back into Game of Thrones or Tales of the Borderlands (or both).
The first episode of Season 2 has just come out – thankfully on iOS at the same as all the other platforms this time – and I just played through it in one sitting (as you should). Wow. Just as good as the first season, and it already made me feel extreme sadness (the dog sequence) and made me wince (the suturing sequence). I’ve played through pretty much all of Telltale’s games that have come out over the past few years (Back to the Future, Jurassic Park, Law & Order, Puzzle Agent), and am constantly amazed at how each new release keeps getting better and better. Just makes me that much more excited for next year’s Game of Thrones and Tales From of Borderlands games (on top of the next Walking Dead and Wolf Among Us episodes).
