With the arrival of the penultimate episode of Telltale's Game of Thrones comes a rush of mixed feelings. I don't want things to be over, but I also want to bring some resolution to House Forrester. Whether or not the Forresters get the resolution they deserve I can't rightly say just yet, but nothing in Westeros comes without a price, for good or ill. For four episodes now, I've been guiding this family as best I can to ensure the safety and future of the Forrester name. It hasn't always gone the way I've wanted or imagined, but like any good installment of Game of Thrones, be it a chapter from the book or an episode of the show, there's a glimmer of hope off in the distance. Though this episode's pacing was a bit rushed, that horizon draws ever closer, and so does the final fate of the Forresters.

Rhys and Fiona just can't stay out of trouble, though that's probably par for the course for a couple of wannabe Vault Hunters. In the last Tales from the Borderlands episode, the not-so-dynamic duo found themselves at odds with Vasquez and August after recovering the coveted orb in the depths of an Atlas bunker. The fates of all our characters were in Rhys' hands, and with everything on the line, we were asked to choose between Fiona or Handsome Jack to pull the collective of butts out of the fire. In true Borderlands fashion, everything goes exactly as planned. Except not really at all.
Though the third episode, "Chaos Theory," doesn't pack quite as much of an emotional punch as the previous chapter, Max's search for the truth in Arcadia Bay does take some startling turns.
Project CARS doesn't suffer fools, and although the average race requires the need for speed, slowing things down to smell the roses, as well as develop your skills, is the only way you to stay on this all too difficult, yet ultimately satisfying, track.
Wolfenstein: The Old Blood continues Machine Games' stellar approach to making Wolfenstein relevant again, even if it isn't quite as good as its predecessor.
Shin Megami Tensei continues to produce decent offerings in a market that doesn’t see a lot of good JRPGs anymore. If you’re looking to reacquaint and extend your experience with Devil Survivor 2 then the new arc included in this game will satisfy.
Featuring its trademark simulation-style baseball, deep franchise and career modes, and a retooled Diamond Dynasty, MLB 15: The Show has improved in just about every conceivable area from its previous incarnation. So why does it feel so stale?
Elliot Quest definitely walks this line but never really lands into either side of the spectrum. That’s not to say that the game is bad or lacks identity, as it wears its influences on its sleeve, but Elliot Quest establishes a world and narrative of its own.
Where the first episode applied some very basic foundations for the world and the characters, "Out of Time" really lets us explore the friendship these two girls share, even though they've been apart for so long.
We're now officially halfway through Telltale's trip through Westeros, and the twists and turns show no signs of stopping.
