The Wolf Among Us was just amazing. If the rest of the episodes are as good I'll be so happy.

Ehhh Once Upon a Time was fine for most of the first season and had some semi-interesting stuff in the second one. It's not complete garbage but I have lost all interest in it at this point due to a lot of things. I've thought Lost is complete bullcrap from the start but to each their own I guess.

But...but...the wolf among us is Alex. I'm so confused.

I don't get why some people get so hung up on turning off the story notifications. They subvert your expectations enough with stuff like having a "Carly will remember that" notification, seconds before she gets shot in the face in The Walking Dead that I never felt like it was giving something away or anything like that. Besides, "Duck thinks you're totally awesome" completely justified the entire system.

I loved The Wolf Among and can't wait for the next episode but like The Walking Dead the main character's dialogue comes over a bit too robot and unnatural.

Ugh.. Pokemon Snap.. I'm sorta a fan of Pokemon, as in I've played a bunch of the games starting with Red/Blue and grew up alongside the series.. Watched a bunch of the anime growing up.

But man when I got Pokemon Snap for Christmas, that was a soul crushing game. I "beat it" or something in like an hour. I didn't know it was like a n on-rails carnival ride. I thought it was like a open safari and get pictures.

I traded that shit in. Only my worst of games are subjected to that fate as I never trade stuff in.

Edit: Changed "the" to "my" cause people are sensitive.

The Wolf and Bigby Wolf are in cahoots I tell you!

While I agree the "second-screen" stuff is generally crap, my wife would totally be down to play as a Commander while I'm playing as a soldier. We're always looking for games we can play together, and she's just not very good at FPS games, so she doesn't like playing them even if she doesn't mind the genre. This would be a great game to still play "together" without her having to actually shoot people. Also, the Battlelog app interaction with the BF4 is amazing. Being able to quickly change a loadout between games is awesome, although I would still like that to be added into the game.

@seikenfreak: Um... Okay?

That's your opinion obviously.

One that others, such as myself, share.

Posted by Dan_CiTi

@seikenfreak: I understand, but yeah that game should be like $10-15 if they made a new one unless they do drastic things to expand it.

Posted by Seikenfreak

@akujin: Yea that's kinda what all of this commenting stuff is about.

I don't have some deep hatred for it, I just have poor childhood memories of it.

I'm a bit surprised the GB guys seem to speak so fondly of it though, but then again they often like weird stuff because its weird lol.

Ughhh! I know I'm over reacting, I know... I just started T.W.U.U., and 3 minutes in, Alex breaks in with character spoilers, I'm not sure what else because I instantly turned this off right after he mentioned some one that I had no idea was in it, and what his role was.

I'm not usually one of those guys that's overly sensitive about game plots, or spoilers. Hell I watched Danny over at Gamespot play GTA 5 for 12 hours (part of it anyway). Mainly because I only own a PC, and can't play it yet.

I just think that games that bank heavily on story, shouldn't be talked about at all. If it is, please do it vaguely, or in a spoiler-cast...

Am I over reacting? I didn't see the rest of this, past the 4 minute mark so I could be wrong.

Patrick does a great job of being extremely vague but, getting the point across effectively. Alex, not so much. Damn if I don't still love the guy though.

Alex actually just called the new Xbox "the One." Wow. That's....

The Wolf Among Us is blowing The Walking Dead out of the water, as far as I'm concerned. It's too bad it will never be as popular, what with the subject matter and the fact that it'll never be as groundbreaking as it was with The Walking Dead. I hope they try to push out more game-mechanic tricks as far as storytelling goes.

...Also, give me a damn option to remove those messages.

Well there's a lesson to not selling out in the music industry, otherwise you'll end up in places you don't want to be.

Ah-woo, another great installment.

Edited by Draxyle

The Wolf Among Us sounds pretty fantastic. I'm down for a "Telltale's The Walking Dead" type game without the depression (or most of it at least).

Posted by MikeLemmer

You're overreacting, IMO. The only spoilers he mentioned was a choice you make very early in the game (not the results of the choice, just the two courses of action you had to choose from) and some vague background info anyone who's read the comics would know. Well, that and mentioning there's a big twist at the end (he wouldn't say what it was, though). I listened to the whole thing and felt like I had nothing spoiled.

@m16mojo2: Yes, you are overreacting. I'm not even sure what you're referring to. Are saying character names spoilers now?

Posted by MooseyMcMan

I hope Patrick does find the time to go back to Blacklist. I really loved that game. In terms of pure stealth mechanics, it's definitely my favorite stealth game from the last few years. The story is, well, it's a Tom Clancy game, so it's about what you'd expect, not that it's bad or anything.

Once Upon a Time is laughable.

Posted by cabrit_sans_cor

I had no interest in this new pokemon game until I read the Polygon review. I hadn't played one seriously since red/blue, so I hadn't really been keeping up with it.

It's really great. I'm having a lot of fun with it, and had eight or nine-year-old me been shown this game, he would have done a goddamn backflip.

Posted by yeliwofthecorn

It's worth noting that Dillinger has been pretty careful with song rights in the past. I know there have been suits over the rights to his songs that he has won before, because he tends to be pretty mindful of who holds the rights to them.

Another great episode, you guys are fantastic. I would also like to know why Rayman Legends dropped from 60 bux to 40 bux a fews days ago (retail), yet is still 60 bux on Xbox On Demand. Will consumers get a refund and is this Legal?

Posted by MrPlatitude

Love the AM show. Probably going to get Wolf Among Us just because of Alex's description of it.

Posted by ajroo

Another great Monday show. I cant tell you how much i enjoy "Bombin' in the AM..."

Its gives me something to look forward to after the weekend is over.

Cant wait to play Lego Marvel Superheros. I am a Lego game lover, but was left a bit disappointed with the Batman 2. It looks like they got the Superhero thing right with this one, though.

It will be my last stress free game before i start this years episode of "Call of Battlefield: RAGE Quit Machine".

Edited by TournamentOfHate

Awesome show guys. Hopefully all the big games can be done being reviewed & covered by the time South Park comes out in December so that Alex or Brad can review it. I'm most excited for that one.

Someone please explain "The Wolf" to me.

Posted by bybeach

More and more interested in the wolf among Us. I might actually be able to play this. The Walking Dead I could not, for reasons totally respecting the series. TellTale did it's job all too well.

Is what legal? Charging more or less for something than someone else does? Of course that's legal. People can sell anything for any amount they want, barring certain emergency situations (legally called "price gouging"). Games on Demand could charge $6,000,000 for Rayman Legends and it would still be legal(unless they have some legal contract with Ubisoft promising not to sell it that high). Stupid, but legal.

As for the "why," Xbox/PSN usually take much longer than retailers to lower the prices on their store. They are just slow on things, that's all. Consumers won't get a refund; why should they?

I believe they were trying to make it sound like a "Morning Zoo" type show. Think "Crazy Ira & The Douche" or "Dingo & The Baby" for reference. As for actually picking "The Wolf" as Alex's avatar... I have no idea why that was chosen.

Capitalism is legal, yes.

Games always drop in price, and lately they tend to drop fast. If you paid $60 for a game, it's kind of on you.

Pokemon snap is one of my all-time favorites. I wish more games would have taken the first person camera-shooter and ran with the idea.

Not at all, he's great. Perhaps it's just how TT uses their dialogue that makes it sound unnatural, while other characters dialogue feel fluent when talking, the main characters sound a bit out of the conversation as if not replying to something.

I can't remember if it was this morning show or the one on Friday (edit: it was Friday), but Patrick repeated his use of the phrase "the Stanley Parable demo is the designer having this existential crisis about demos" that he also used verbatim when he played it in Worth Playing. While there is a lot of satire and fourth-wall breaking in the demo, I don't think you can even apply the term "existential crisis" to something as mundane as a demo. There's no crisis; the SP demo is a planned thing that pokes fun at specific elements of the goals and intents of most regular demos (while also portraying the demo as a sort of weird live tour). The phrase you're looking for is "the Stanley Parable demo is a meditation on demos". Existential crisis is not even remotely applicable.

Sometimes I feel like Patrick just wants to use big words to describe things he likes, and then chooses random big words that don't actually fit the situation.
