“I can take care of myself. I’ve been doing it for centuries.”

In 2014 Telltale Games applied its episodic, adventure game formula to a title based upon Bill Willingham’s Fables comic book series. In this issue, Joshua Garrity, Tony Atkins, Ryan Hamann and Sean O’Brien discuss The Wolf Among Us, aided as always with excellent contributions from our community along with their Three Word Reviews.

Music used in this issue:

Track 1: Opening Credits by Jared Emerson-Johnson
Track 2: Main Menu by Jared Emerson-Johnson

Interesting podcast,it kinda of solidified my opinion on how this being a prequel holds the game back,many of the problems and nitpicks with characters you all had can be solved with saying "It's explained in the comics" There cant be a pay-off beteween Bigby and Snow because that's in the comics,BlueBeard will be a bigger deal in the comics,they go to the farm in the comics,etc. For the same reason there really cant be another Wolf Among Us season either because they cant add alot more without breaking cannon with the books and they cant do that,they had a similar problem with GoT. Makes me aprecciate TotB even more in how they had the freedom to do what they wanted with the IP.

Interesting. Is Bluebeard the main antagonist of the comic series? I assumed that while I was playing, but I wasn't sure. I think overall though, The Wolf Among Us does a good job of telling a story with a beginning, middle and end (well, sort of) that can stand on its own, even if you haven't read the comics.

He isnt the main antagonist(that's the adversary) but he's much more of a major character there then he is in the game and in the comics there's actually a pay-off to him.I think my frustration might simply come from reading the comics and seeing where they were retricted rather then the story being majorly impacted because of it's status as a prequel.

Yeah, playing through The Wolf Among Us as a prequel to Fables vs. as a standalone story must create two fairly different experiences. Interesting!

There are a handful of dramatic moments in the game that lose some impact if you've read the comics, but I never thought it was to the extent that it made it a poorer game.

Is it just the Snow White scene at the end of Episode 1? And is the Crooked Man mentioned at all in the comics?

I'm at least half way through the comics and they've not mentioned him, no.

The croocked man exists only in the game another example of the game not surprising is Crane leaving and being replaced by snow because in the comics it appears she was always running the place,the jack,the Beauty and Beast and Bluebeard interactions all have to be tame because they cant affect the comics and there can be no resolution in the relationship with Snow because that happens in the comics,it doesnt ruin the game but it does holds it back I think.

You should. They're great.

There's just rather a lot of them.
