How do you want us to review episodic games?

Hey gang, Justin McElroy here. We've been talking a lot about how we review episodic games, and we've been thinking about a new approach.

A lot of the time we finish an episode of a game (OK, it's usually a Telltale game) and aren't really sure what we can write without spoiling the story. Not much has changed mechanically after all, there's not a lot to talk about other this story.

What we'd like to try is something of a review/recap hybrid, not unlike what you'd see with an episodic TV review. Basically a review that assumes you've played the episode and would like to read a bit of criticism about it. This would allow us to have a deeper discussion about plot points, how they're used and what we might like to see in future episodes.

What do you think?
