The Wolf Among Us… How you torment me. One episode I love you; the next, I want to move on to other games. It’s a tumultuous relationship.
This week for Leviathyn I reviewed the fourth episode of The Wolf Among Us. After absolutely loving Episode 3, I found this one to be pretty disappointing.
“The Wolf Among Us has been inconsistent in a way that neither seasons of The Walking Dead have been. That may be a problem of being a mystery story or perhaps it’s a problem of being limited by being a prequel, but either way The Wolf Among Us is now 50/50 on quality storytelling. I was more lenient on Smoke and Mirrors when it came out because, riding a wave of goodwill from the first episode and Walking Dead Season One, I expected it was a fluke. But now with In Sheep’s Clothing it seems there are larger problems with The Wolf Among Us.”

After a two-month break because of a crazy busy semester, I’m back on the video game writing bandwagon. This week it’s a spotlight on one of my favorite devs who I don’t think gets enough love or recognition.
“Raven Software is one of those companies that has probably made a game you love even though you might not recognize their name. When all their games are listed out it’s funny just how many well-loved cult classics have come out of one studio. Soldier of Fortune, Star Trek: Voyager – Elite Force, Star Wars: Jedi Knight II – Jedi Outcast, Star Wars Jedi Knight – Jedi Academy, and X-Men Legends I & II are all from Raven Software. From comic book games to movie games to their own IP, Raven has proven that they’re a studio that knows how to craft games with interesting mechanics that pull you into their fascinating universes.”
Developer Spotlight is going to be a monthly feature on Leviathyn that we hope will draw attention to developers who deserve it and hopefully show readers some experiences they might not have found.
