Despite the appeal of the 3D effect of Nintendo’s latest handheld, I’ve found myself falling for one of the 3DS family’s lesser-known innovations – Streetpass, the Wi-Fi handshake that two 3DS users have in general proximity. From a manufacturer known for being a little behind the curve on all things online, it’s a welcome differentiator. A light, low-maintenance social dimension, a way of showing off your best times or the layout of your in-game home, or just expressing something about yourself to other passers by.
By virtue of the number two following the number one, the following review of season two of Telltale’s The Walking Dead will feature spoilers for the first season. As with any other review, spoilers for this first episode have been kept to a minimum – major narrative points will not be discussed, though minor details about the tone, setting and gameplay of this instalment will be dealt with. You have been warned.
