https://static.gamespot.com/uploads/scale_super/43/434805/3342983-telltale+games+20_01_2018+14_59_59.png There’s a line in Episode 4 of Telltale’s Batman: The Enemy Within that serves as an evocative metaphor for the dynamic between Batman and Joker–or more aptly for the Telltale series, Bruce Wayne and John Doe: “We’re two threads in the same stitch, bound together…even under strain.” Across the previous three episodes, events have transpired to pull at the […]

That Blizzard anime from last week was one of the coolest video game clips I have ever seen, but it turns out it wasn’t the work of the company’s in-house cinematics team.

The Monster Hunter series is a familiar sight on portable consoles, including Nintendo’s starting with Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on the 3DS. Not Monster Hunter […]
