Telltale Games recently released a video entitled “Telltale Games: Summer 2017 Update” in which they revealed their plans for the continuation of three of their popular series. These three games, Batman, The Walking Dead, and The Wolf Among Us will be getting a season 2, 4, and another 2 respectively.

*Warning! Mild spoilers for previous seasons of each game follow*

Starting with Batman: The Enemy Within, there is a brief trailer for events to come. This is followed by a series of cast interviews about what they tried in season 1 and where they’re going now. The trailer seems to pick up not too long after the finale of season 1, which set up the Joker being the next main antagonist. This trailer further confirms his role in the upcoming season and gives us new details about “friends” that he’s made. The only villain besides Joker that was directly referenced in the trailer is the Riddler, who will be making his debut next season. Premiering this August, Telltale promises that The Enemy Within is taking what worked in season 1 and ramping it up to new levels this season.

Next, we have The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – The Final Season. This one doesn’t have a trailer per se but we do get a good amount of information from interviews with the team behind it. Since it is now confirmed that this fourth season of the Telltale adaptation of Robert Kirkman’s hit comics is where the story ends, these interviews focused on the journey so far. Every comment focused on Clementine and her importance to the story overall. In Season One, Clementine existed as a means for hope for the player and as a kind of moral compass. In Season Two, we get to fully explore the world of The Walking Dead through her eyes as she tries to understand the meaning of family. The New Frontier sees a grizzled and older Clementine who is burned by the events of previous seasons but eventually does find a family and things work out. The Final Season is confirmed to be about her continued search for AJ and what happens from there and will be releasing in 2018.

Finally, we have The Wolf Among Us Season 2. Once again, there isn’t so much a trailer but a series of Telltale interviews, probably due to the release date being in 2018 as well. This time, however, the team is reading off a series of “mean Tweets” about fans desiring the new season of The Wolf Among Us. Don’t worry fans, Telltale has definitely noticed you want another season. From there, it turns into the same kind of interview the last two games had, discussing the story, characters, the world, etc. They mainly focus on the “neon” aesthetic of the world and how it lends to such great detective stories. They also get into the psyche of characters like Wolf and Snow and give us small hints about where they’re going from here, such as Wolf is a kind of rebel.

Summer Update: 

I spend most of my days working towards my Writing and Rhetoric degree at the University of Central Florida, but I spend a lot of my down time keeping up to date on the best TV, movies, and video games the industry has to offer. Here I put all of that extended time to use discussing each of them in-depth.

After a long wait, it appears that the search for a capable Hollywood actor to bring the brooding Shadow the Hedgehog to life has come to an end. Keanu Reeves, a renowned actor known for his iconic roles in film franchises such as The Matrix and John Wick, as well as his involvement in the highly anticipated game Cyberpunk 2077, has officially been cast for the role.

Speculation has been running wild lately, but The Hollywood Reporter has officially confirmed the casting, citing reliable sources in the know. News of Sonic the Hedgehog 3 being showcased at Cinemacon has quickly spread. Reeves is sure to bring his own special touch to the role, but it’s uncertain how well he will mesh with the mustachioed Dr. Robotnik, as Jim Carrey is set to reprise the character.

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth’s Retry Wording Has Been Updated in a Subtle Manner

Published

Despite the numerous praises players have showered upon Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, there is one particular aspect of the game that has garnered nothing but criticism: the perplexing wording of its retry screen, which players encounter when facing a Game Over. Fortunately, the developers have discreetly resolved this issue in the game’s latest patch. They have fixed the Platinum Trophy progression, resulting in a slightly less confusing experience for players.

If you don’t possess exceptional combat abilities, chances are you’ve come across the game’s notorious four options: “Retry from Current Battle, Retry from This Battle, Retry from Before Battle, or Resume.”. As an avid gamer, I must admit that I’ve experienced the frustration of losing precious time due to my own foolish mistake. In this particular instance, I found myself engrossed in fine-tuning my matrix and equipping my party, only to have it all go to waste when I encountered a formidable enemy. To compound my error, I made the ill-advised decision to retry the battle, resulting in an hour of agonizing repetition. Lesson learned!

The “Retry from This Battle” option has become a source of frustration for players who are struggling with the game’s final boss encounter, leading to a significant number of rage-quits. Without giving away any surprises, opting for that choice after being defeated would result in players being sent back to the beginning of the final boss encounter, needlessly forcing them to forfeit approximately an hour’s worth of hard-earned progress in battle.

After the update, players now have the option to select “Retry from the Current Phase” instead of “Retry from Before the Current Battle.”. It’s worth noting that this change is only slightly improved. It’s rather disappointing that the screen is overly convoluted, which may lead to players feeling frustrated. While it’s better late than never, we can’t help but wonder if this issue will persist in the future.
