The Walking Dead: Season 3 To Revisit Clem, Comics

The Walking Dead: Michonne [official site], a miniseries in Telltale’s episodic choose-your-own-disaster line, wraps up today with the release of its third episode. This closes a gap in the comic book story, a point where Michonne had vanished off for a few issues. And Telltale will be dipping into the comic book world a bit more, according to comic creator Robert Kirkman. He’s opened up a wee bit about Season Three of Telltale’s The Walking Dead, which is due this year, and will once again visit Clementine.

The Walking Dead: Michonne Gets Final Slice Next Week

Having never read the comic book series, I mostly know The Walking Dead’s Michonne as the samurai sword-wielding walker-whacker that’s played by Danai Gurira in the television series. Courtesy of Telltale’s point-and-click spin-off, though, I now also know her as the equally bad ass serial choice maker-er who’s about to embark on her third and final miniseries episode. Named “What We Deserve”, the last outing of The Walking Dead: Michonne [official site] will launch on April 26.

Telltale’s “Pretty Innovative” Walking Dead S3 Due 2016

As first hinted back in 2014, there’s definitely going to be a Season 3 of Telltale’s The Walking Dead – because The Walking Dead in all its forms is a story specifically designed to never, ever end. Telltale promise that the endings of Season 2 will be respected, and claim what they’re doing is “not from the bag of tricks that that we’ve ever shown anybody before.”

The Walking Dead: Michonne Ep. 2 Out In March

The Walking Dead: Michonne [official site] Episode 2, called “Give No Shelter,” is coming out on March 29th. To announce the release, Telltale have done something slightly different than the usual trailer, something quite cool and also quite creepy. They’ve published one of those recaps that remind you of the choices you made in past episodes, basing it on what the majority of players decided to do.

It’s a bit like “Twitch plays”, except these are the decisions of our collective hivemind.

Even Your Mom

One of the commonly used phrases in tech and games to describe a foolproof ease of use is ‘even your mom’. “So simple even your mom could do it”. That’s where this article starts. ‘Even your mom’ could play this game. But what do we mean by that beyond touch-based or click-only interfaces, and games produced for the often dismissed ‘casual’ market? And, actually, how hard is it to learn to play a game? I decided to run a small experiment: let’s be ambitious, let’s introduce my mother to 6 PC games – and not just ‘easy’ games – a mixed bag of different genres, control systems and approaches. Let’s actually sidestep those assumptions about a huge part of our (Western) world communities, and see what it is for a mother, my mother, to play popular independent PC games.

The Walking Dead: Michonne Starts This Month

I’ve only a passing familiarity with Michonne from seeing a bit of the Walking Dead TV show, where she is one of the few competent characters, but I broadly understand she is, as the kids say, ‘pretty dang cool’. Cool enough to get her own spin-off game and be voiced by Orange Is the New Black‘s Poussey, certainly.

The Walking Dead: Michonne [official site] will begin on Tuesday, February 23rd, Telltale announced today. All three episodes will run you $15 together.

Our 100% Accurate Predictions About The Next Batch Of Licensed Telltale Games

Telltale’s resume has grown enormously over the last few years, spurred on by the success of their Walking Dead franchise. They’ve always had a number of franchises on their run at any time, from the mediocre Sam & Max to their truly dreadful Law & Order games, before finding some comedic feet with Strong Bad. But those were the olden days when their games were cartoonish point and click adventures. Now they are choose-your-own adventures with SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES. Currently we concurrently have The Wolf Among Us, Tales From The Borderlands, Game Of Thrones, Minecraft: Story Mode, and The Walking Dead. Recently they announced they’re adding Batman and a Marvel title. But I’ve uncovered even more, exclusively revealed below.
