Played The Long Dark: Icy Flashbacks

During my first winter living in Berlin, I discovered just how much I hate the cold.

The Wolf Among Us – Faith Review and Gamethrough: Big Bad Ass Detective Work

It has been a fun ride on the Telltale train the last few years. Full of ups, downs, and even a game of the year. I assumed Telltale had peaked.
