Telltale games have become the name to know in adventure games. With their impressive story telling in The Walking Dead they have created a spark in a genre that people seemed to have lost interest in. Their episodic approach to releasing games leaves fans with cliff hanger endings that have them craving the date of the next release. The Wolf Among Us is no exception to this as anyone who played the first episode knows, it's been a long wait.

If you didn't get a chance to play the first episode or even The Walking Dead, they play like an interactive movie. This is a term that gets thrown around a lot these days but it's increasingly true as you get further into these games. When you first start the controls might feel a little clunky and you need time to get fluid with them but when you have it's easy to forget you are playing a game. You end up so enthralled in the characters that your choices don't seem as simple as they maybe should. At times it feels like you are making decisions that could end a life. This is what makes these games so hard to put down and even harder to forget.

Anyone who has been eyeing their calendar doesn't have much longer to wait as the next episode is nearly here, February 4th is the official release date for PC and Mac. Console fans may have to wait until the box release date of February 5th.
