The Voice Of Clementine On The Walking Dead’s Final Episode

Seven years ago, veteran voice actress Melissa Hutchison landed a role as Clementine in Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead. She couldn’t have known at the time that the first season of the episodic adventure series would launch to great reviews or that her character, who wasn’t even playable in the first season, would go on to become the face of the series. Now, the final chapter is out and Clementine’s story has reached its conclusion. We spoke with Hutchison about her wild and unpredictable journey as Clem, her emotional reaction to the game’s final episode, and the untimely closure of Telltale Games.

Full spoilers below for the entirety of Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead series.

In The Walking Dead’s inaugural season, players took on the role of Lee, an ex-con who crosses paths with an orphaned girl named Clementine in the early days of the zombie apocalypse. Lee acted as a father figure to Clem throughout the season, which made its finale as emotional as it was shocking: Lee, bitten by a walker, asks Clementine to decide whether or not to kill him before he turns into a zombie himself. The result is the same whatever players decide to do. Lee dies, and in a twist, Clementine – and Melissa Hutchison – becomes the series’ lead.

Former OnLive CEO Shares His Advice For Google’s Stadia

Last month, Google announced Stadia, a cloud gaming service that purports to bring high-quality PC gaming to basically any device that can run a Chrome browser. It’s an exciting proposition, but one that felt very familiar.

A decade ago, another company announced a similar intention. OnLive brought cloud-based PC gaming to any computer that could support its application, and it even offered many of the same tools Google is promising with Stadia. Unfortunately, OnLive went out of business and never became the ubiquitous gaming service it aspired to be, but that hasn’t dissuaded Google. In light of the internet giant’s efforts to reignite cloud gaming, we reached out to Steve Perlman, OnLive’s former president, chairman, and CEO. Perlman shared thoughts on Stadia, whether he thinks it will work, and how much he thinks it should cost.

From Software Games And Easy Mode Don't Mix

From Software Games And Easy Mode Don't Mix

There’s a big conversation out there in gaming land right now, discussing accessibility, easy modes, difficulty sliders, and challenge in games – and how “An easy mode has never ruined a game”. In the case of the From Software suite, I believe there are intrinsic properties in play that would in fact lead to a severely diminished experience.

Before we begin, I’m not trying to gatekeep anything or keep anyone from enjoyment – precisely the opposite. I won’t sit here and tell you that you just need to “git gud.” I’ve spent countless hours on Farm Together, mobile match-threes, and all kinds of casual experiences that are absolutely games, and I make no distinction between different types of gamers: We’re all gamers. That said, the modern From Software suite – Souls, Bloodborne, and Sekiro – would be absolutely gutted by the addition of a difficulty slider of any kind. Let’s talk about why.

Check Out An Exclusive Preview Card From The Elder Scrolls: Legends - Alliance War

Check Out An Exclusive Preview Card From The Elder Scrolls: Legends - Alliance War

The upcoming The Elder Scrolls: Legends – Alliance War expansion set hits later this month, but we have a cool new card to share with you right now! The Steel-Eyed Visionary showcases the veteran ability, which triggers once the creature survives its first attack. Take a look!

As you can see, when you decide to make that swing with Steel-Eyed Visionary makes a big difference, since you'll only be able to trigger the ability once. Is it worth it to just swing early alone and turn into a 4/4? Or perhaps wait for larger friends for massive damage potential?

Community manager on The Elder Scrolls: Legends, Christian Van Hoose, had this to say about the new card: "Steel-Eyed Visionary only costs three magicka, so it’s able to get played to the board very quickly and attack the following turn. When it does, its Veteran effect will increase its stats to 4/4 since it has four health – but the fun doesn’t stop there. If you’re able to play other creatures with high health, Steel-Eyed Visionary can generate a lot of extra power quickly. It can make Hive Defender a 6/6, or turn Portcullis into a 9/9! It also combos nicely with items that increase creatures’ health, such as Enchanted Plate."
