Telltale have successfully adapted all existing game franchises into critically acclaimed point & click adventures.
Their latest work, “The Mushroom Kingdom - A Telltale Game Series”, the story of a civil war from the eyes of young Toadsworth whose only goal it is to get the princess into another castle, surprised gamers and critics alike with its polished storytelling and thought provoking questions about love and morality.
With their recent acquisition of Nintendo, they now have the absolute monopoly in the gaming industry.
All developers unify under the banner of their new overlords
Harry Potter. Yeah, I’m one of those people who didn’t really read before this series.
The Fault in Our Stars. I like John Green, but given the subject matter I didn’t actually expect to like, much less fall in love with it the way I did.
The Book Thief. It’s beautifully written, and I’d absolutely buy a book of Markus Zusak’s prose, but the thing with novels is that I kind of want them to get to the point and tell a story. I haven’t gotten far, and I’ll probably give it another chance… but it just didn’t manage to keep me interested the first time around.
So, I tuned in out of boredom just when it started, and the Tales From the Borderlands announcement hooked me enough to keep watching for another half hour or so.
But man, was that hard to watch. The worst part for me was when, during the Gearbox/Telltale interview, Geoff said to Joel that he probably has no idea what they’re talking about, followed by that clumsy excuse by Joel who was apparently “too shy” to say anything, but he’s really a big fan of the series. Because that was in no way the producer trying to save his “gamer cred”… yeaaaaah.
It’s the same problem every year. If you need a celebrity host, either stop with the gaming jokes, or get an actual gamer on board. Otherwise it’s just uncomfortable to watch.
