This year, masters of storytelling Telltale Games released two critically acclaimed episodic series on XBLA, and soon they’ll be telling those tales on Xbox One. Both The Walking Dead Season 2 and The Wolf Among Us will be getting next-gen retail releases this fall. Each game will be the complete experience, so you can play the story from beginning to end without all that pesky waiting between episodes. If disks aren’t your thing, both seasons will also be available to download.
For those of you wanting to continue Clementine’s story in the zombie apocalypse, The Walking Dead Season 2 will get its retail release on October 21. If you’re not caught up on the series, the first season is already available for Xbox One. If noir crime stories and magical creatures are up your alley, The Wolf Among Us will arrive a little later November 4. You can check out the dark and moody trailers for both games after the jump.
First off, I would like to say that I do play an occasional retail game. It’s very rare, but I do buy retail discs. Usually it is a budget title though. In 2010, I bought three retail games and only one game (UFC Undisputed 2010) was $60. The other two titles I picked up were Deathsmiles and 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa both at $20. My other gaming purchases totaled anywhere from 30-40 Xbox Live Indie Games titles, 40-50 Xbox Live Arcade titles and 30-40 Steam titles. The downloadable platform is clearly my venue of choice for many reasons.
