We have reached the conclusion of the Telltales’s newest comic book adventure. Based off the acclaimed comic book series Fables, for the first time we got to see the world of Fables in motion. Does The Wolf Among Us succeed as its comic book cousin The Walking Dead or does it fall short like the overlooked adventures games like Back to the Future or Jurrassic Park?
Telltale has returned, not with The Walking Dead The Game Season 2 but with another graphic novel property. Based off Bill Williamham’s Fables, The Wolf Among Us is another 5 part episodic series. Taking place before the start of the original series it follows the life of Bigby The Big Bad Wolf. The Walking Dead was a surprise breakout success that put Telltale on the map. Will The Wolf Among Us be a similar success?

Ever since NetherRealm Studios exploded back on the fighting game scene with Mortal Kombat in 2011 we have been eagerly awaiting what they have next. They have brought back the DC Universe back in to the fighting game realm absent since 2008 with Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe this time with a much darker feel. Will NetherRealm take what they learned in from Mortal Kombat to heart or will this be a drop?
With the lull that was 2012 behind us let’s look towards the new year. 2013 is already promising a stronger line up with both sequels and a surprising amount of new IPs. There’s a lot to look forward to this year with several games coming out within the first half of the year. I’m not aware of everything that’s coming out but are the games that have been on my radar.
This past weekend I attended FanExpo Canada in Toronto. On top of seeing celebrities and spending more money than I’m willing to admit I had the opportunity to play some upcoming games. Sony, Ubisoft, Warner Bros, Bungie and EA had a presence at the expo. Most of the games at FanExpo appeared to be the E3 builds. While I didn’t have a chance to play each title, I did play some highly anticipated games.
The Playstation Network is offering all Uncharted 2 DLC free for Playstation Plus users.
Naughty Dog has not excluded any piece of DLC in this mega deal. All Multiplayer Maps, Siege Expansion Pack, Character Skins, Golden Weapon Mods, Avatars, Dynamic Theme and the four part Motion Comic “Eye of Indra” are included.
This is obviously to promote Uncharted 3 that is releasing on November 1st. Even if you aren’t going to play the multiplayer again the avatars, theme and the motion comic that I haven’t even heard of before are a nice bonus. This is an unbeleivable value and I am always fond of free stuff. Get it while you still can.
