Telltale games managed to make quite the innovation and shocked many with its storytelling through last year’s hit title The Walking Dead. Telltale took a unique approach by releasing the game in episodes, which ended up working perfectly for the company by not only pacing of the story to keep tension, but the interest that increased with each episode’s release and started to raise questions as to whether episodic gaming was something that could be in store for the future of the industry.
But with the success of the game and the unknown impending future of the series, many wondered what was next.
Telltale announced they were going to make a Season Two to the game and had started work on it before the release of Episode 5: No Time Left. Even though Season Two isn’t due out til next year, it would appear we won’t have to wait to get our hands on the series again.
Johnathon Blow, the creative mind behind Braid, is currently hard at work on his new title The Witness for the PC and the Playstation 4. Blow got on stage during the Playstation 4 press conference and showcased his new title and announced that The Witness was coming to the PlayStation 4 for a certain amount of time, which has a lot of fans in the community questioning whether this means the game will be coming to the other consoles or not.
One of the biggest questions that has been circulating since the announcement of the PlayStation 4 and its impending release is “Where are some of the games we were promised this generation?” There have been several announced titles over the past years that were showcased across several press events and slated for a release on the PlayStation 3. Games like Final Fantasy Versus XIII, Agent, and The Last Guardian were announced and then shortly dropped off the radar. Well, some of our hopes have been answered in the form of an extremely vague answer.

It would appear that the guys at Obsidian Entertainment are interested in getting back into the Star Wars franchise. In a recent interview with rockpapershotgun.com, Obsidian’s CEO, Feargus Urquhart explained his interest in moving back into the franchise and even goes on to explain some of the ideas on where the game’s direction may go.
The game’s story is being written by Obsidian’s Chris Avellone, the same person who wrote the story behind Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II and several Star Wars related comics, and would take place between Episode III and IV. Obsidian was in talks with LucasArts over the matter, but with the recent acquisition of the company by Disney, Obsidian has decided to let things calm down.

With the recent announcement from XSEED Games confirming the North American localization of Pandora’s Tower, it almost feels like the end of an era: the Operation Rainfall era. But the release of the three games that gave birth to an organization doesn’t mean their time is over – at least, not judging by what Operation Rainfall owner Jonathan Higgins has to say. It’s just beginning.
I recently sat down for an interview with Jonathan and chatted about the past, present, and future of both Operation Rainfall and the games that are its heart and soul. He’s confident that as long as there are still more niche games and publishers to bring to the world, Operation Rainfall will be there to dedicated to giving them their time in the limelight.
