Telltale Games Shutting Down

https://archive.li/FN7he Guess all that licensing of popular shit like Walking Dead and Game of Thrones didn't pay off.

I heard about this on tevin's stream and I'm fine with it. I'm as happy about them closing as I would be if EA or Ubishit closed. They've made nothing but shovelware and trash for years. In fact, the companies everyone loves to hate like EA and Crapcom have made more good games in the last five years than fucking Telltale.

So, that pretty much marks every walking simulator dev being out of business besides the Life Is Tumblr faggots. One more to go.

Jesus Christ Fucking Minecraft Story Mode is their swan song. The cutscenes for that game are being repurposed into a fucking Netflix show.

I coulda swore telltale games were still fairly popular despite the negative reputation they have been getting the last few years.

Their licenses are popular, but the actual games are trash and no fun to play. That's why they're fucking dead. One might call them the Walking Dead.

Telltale are one of those companies the gaming press dickride constantly and all the let's player fags like DSP and TBFP shill for when playing their games (I noticed TBFP are playing the borderlands telltale shit even though they've never once let's played a REAL borderlands game), but average gamers who don't get paid to sit and listen to cutscenes end up tuning out of their bullshit.

Telltale are basically the polar opposite of a game like RE4. RE4 has a trash (funny) story but godlike gameplay. I was playing that just today and it's timeless. A thing of fucking beauty that ages like a fine wine. Telltale will sell you a pile of cow manure on a gold-encrusted platter and call it a steak. Whereas RE4 is that steak that arrives at your table with no frills but is cooked perfectly to your tastes and seasoned beautifully.

You can really see how shit they are when they take control of an IP that doesn't have automatic clout they can ride. Minecraft story mode is legendarily shit.
