The good, the bad, and the ugly of Telltale’s latest two time travel installments.

PAX East Concert and Portal 2 Review

Saturday, April 23rd, 2011

First thing’s first: Here’s the YouTube playlist for the PAX East 2011 Saturday Night Concert, featuring Video Game Orchestra, Paul and Storm, and Jonathan Coulton. A very fun, very late night.

Second: I finished the single player campaign of Portal 2 three days ago, shot this vlog two days ago, edited/rendered yesterday, and uploaded overnight. I try to talk about how much I liked the game without spoiling anything, which is harder than you may think.

Have a wonderful Easter weekend!

Review: Back to the Future: The Game Episode Two

Saturday, February 19th, 2011

Marty and Doc’s adventure continues…

Oh, and between recording and uploading this vlog, I discovered that Telltale just got the King’s Quest license. I’m not sure if it’s the right fit–after all, Telltale games are easy-but-with-good-stories, while half the fun of the KQ series is its infamous difficulty. However, if there’s one thing Telltale’s good at, it’s capturing the heart of their adapted licenses, at least from a story/humor standpoint. Here’s hoping they can extend that magic to a gameplay standpoint and make a KQ game worthy of the series.

I Wonder What Happened In MonkeyThon09: Part Five

Thursday, January 7th, 2010

We’ve uncovered the secret, been the victims of revenge, undone a curse, and (eventually) somehow managed to escape. And now, we get to hear Telltale tell THEIR tales!

Part Five: Tales of Monkey Island (more…)

I Wonder What Happened In MonkeyThon09: Part Four

Tuesday, January 5th, 2010

We’ve recapped “Secret”, “Revenge”, and “Curse”. Each one of these games has a huge faction which claims it as their favorite in the series. However, the faction which claims this next game as their favorite is…minuscule at best.

Part Four: Escape From Monkey Island (more…)

Monday, January 4th, 2010

Our ongoing recap of MonkeyThon09 continues!
