What Big Eyes You Have

The Wolf Among Us • Completed Chapter 3 of Episode 3 • 20G • 39.37% of gamers unlocked this

Back to a good ol’ faithful Telltale game today – and what better way to start the week than by a visit with Bigby and the Fables team? I actually managed to get up early and have breakfast at a reasonable hour today – even beating one of my kids to the breakfast table! So, rather than torture myself with breakfast television, I turned on the Xbox and went with a story-based title and my Weet-bix.

Spoiler Warning – The story picks up with Bigby and his group on the tail of Ichabod Crane after discovering his supposed involvement in the murder of Woodland girls, and most of this chapter is a various series of expositions where Bigby, Snow White and Bluebeard are jostling to determine what happens next. It’s probably not something you notice unless you are paying close attention for a good screenshot, but The Wolf Among Us is mostly just a series of over-the-shoulder camera angles, switching between Snow and Bigby depending on who is talking. Of course, there is the occasional cutaway, but for the most part, the point-of-view aesthetic is taken very seriously. This makes long dialogue scenes such as this chapter particularly difficult, because it’s really just choosing one of two or three different looks to screen-capture.

With that achievement out of the way, I’m giving some consideration to an early night tonight. I was in bed by 11pm last night, and while I had to get up at 6am for a challenging toddler, it meant that I was not debilitated going to work today. I call that a small win. I’ll see how the house is settled later tonight, it may be a case that I get back on the high seas a bit later as well, but for now, I’ll keep my expectations low.
