It was £10 something on Steam when I bought it, I'm sure it works out even cheaper on XBL. I'm only on EP1. I'm FRAPS'ing my play through so I can upload it to youtube for my friend to watch.

You should call them and tell them its ten bucks! Play it for themselves! They just want to hear the story?

He's finished it, he wants to see my playthrough. Travel logistics make that really hard to achieve :P So I FRAPS my game time, encode it and then upload it. My last play was an hour and 12 minutes. 211Gb file size encoded down to 6.19Gb which is going to take about 12 hours to upload as my upload speed sucks.

I don't get the love for an interactive DVD menu. In the end, you're paying $10 that could have been put into great games like Rayman Origins.

I purchased the episodes on PS3 and loved it there. Now I've purchased them on 360. I even have the iOS version of the first episode. It's easily one of my favorite games this gen and I can't wait for season two.

No. A couple of characters from the series are involved here and there (no spoilers!) but it doesn't follow the series at all. Its also heads and shoulders better than the series, by a country mile.

Xbox Live has The Walking Dead for $10.

That's a better deal than Steam's $12.47 Daily Deal that's going on right now.

and I just bought it for $12.47 too.

Oh well, I guess my Xbox will be turned on later today to play Halo.

guess you never grew up in an era of grim fandango and the good ol lucasarts days.

Best laugh is narratively this game whoops both games in your sig, might buy it i tried the trial but it all comes down to having money for hogmanay since im supposed to be going out to the pub for a few jars and seeing the bells in.

I thought games were supposed to be all about the gameplay and story secondary. Really, a story about zombies beating Journey in story...?

lolz... I saw yesterday that the season pass for BL2 was on sale for 25% off too, I thought about getting that if we're really going to dive into the game. It was in the Daily sale countdown section, so it might be off sale now.

I'm pretty sure The Walking Dead is a game that really has nothing to do with the Zombies.

The Zombies are a factor, but they're not the entire focus. Just like DayZ. The Real threat is the other Players. (No I'm not saying The Walking Dead is like DayZ, far from it, I'm pointing out that just because there are Zombies doesn't mean that is the entire focus.)

Yeah but they need the zombie excuse to tell the "oh god dougie is bitten! kill him/help him!" or "im gonna shoot you if you dont give me these goods to survive" cliche'd premises. As if they cant tell ith ithout any kind of apocalypse happening. Do something original, something like Russian prisoners escaping from a tuberculosis-ridden prison. "Oh no! Vlad has a very bad cough...lets dump him" ould be the e uivalent ithout resorting to zombie tropes.

It follows it's own story set in the Walking dead comic's universe. It has nothing to do with the show.

Bah, the zombies are just a vehicle to create drama... that show is about character journey to me.
