Telltale games have always been set in familiar universes and often featured appearance by familiar characters. The Walking Dead: Michonne — A Telltale Miniseries however, creates a new kind of landmark by being the first to cast the player in an already-established role. Easily the most badass character on the titular TV show, sorry Daryl, Michonne is one of the most mysterious and interesting roles it has to offer. The issue becomes whether her already-established personality clashes with the morality-steering mechanics paramount to the Telltale games series.
Coming into Elementary School every morning, there was one thing I always made a beeline towards: The computer lab. Some of those games on those older Macintosh computers are amongst my favorite gaming memories. Probably played most often was, of course, The Oregon Trail. Naming your crew after friends or family and seeing what nasty fate befell them was half of the fun. As such, in lieu of the Wednesday Night Stream for the evening, I have recorded some gameplay from a tribute game that takes the gameplay from The Oregon Trail and frames it around the zombie apocalypse. Enjoy!
Trucking simulators have never really appealed to me. The concept of taking goods from one place to another in a video game doesn’t exactly scream excitement and sounds more like work than play. Little did I know, all that was required was setting it in space and including blowing up other ships to hurtle me over to the opposite side of the fence. Rebel Galaxy brings the style and action necessary to make transporting goods as exciting as it is cathartic and relaxing.
