Sweet review that makes this game look interesting and kinda gives me a bit of an interest in looking up this series of games.

Oh, but there's a typo in the VERY. FIRST. WORD. What would Clem think about that?*

*Well, probably not much. When trying to stay one step ahead of zombies, most people have better things to do than be grammar nazis.

I was talking to DE yesterday about the difference between championing games and reviewing them well. In that case, it was because I was bullying him into playing Spec Ops: The Line, but I feel much the same with The Walking Dead. It's not a feel-good game you play to escape reality; it's not a time sink you do in-between of other things. It's something you experience and anyone with an interest in gaming should resign themselves right now to misery, and go play them anyway. At one point, I paused In Harm's Way and walked off to do something else because I knew what I would have to do next and point blank did not want to do it.

No one asked for that ramble.,... where was I...

Thanks for that catch! The typo was hidden by all the HTML gathered around it. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. The Walking Dead rightfully exists on almost every current gaming medium that exists, so no one has any excuses but to break out the tissues and play it.

I only skimmed your review b/c I don't really want to have any spoilers, I plan to play season 2 when all the episodes have been released, glad to see you gave it an 8 though!

A bit off topic, have you played "The Wolf Among Us," also by TellTale Games? I'm interesting in playing that series.

I've not. I didn't want to play two episodic release at the same time, and plan to go through that one upon full release.

I don't think I have it in me to wait until completion for Walking Dead, though

Awesome review, dude. I finished the episode last night, and agree with you on everything, including the Spec Ops comparison.

By the way, you've got a missing word, I believe, in the first paragraph: You can pick yourself by thinking that you have some measure of control. Were you going for, pick yourself up?

I only skimmed it as well, because I intend to play season two later this year.

Quick question: How are your decisions from season one carried over? I played through season one on Xbox 360, but will probably play on PC this time around, and am wondering what I'll miss out on.

Stop.... stop skimming my reviews!

S1 carry overs are mostly cosmetic that I've noticed thus for. FOR EXAMPLE Someone makes a innocent joke about having their arm cut off and, if you went down this road with Lee, Clem just glares at the person until they shut up. You'll miss a few cool throwback lines and moments like that, but I don't think much else is going to be missed.

If you've not played 400 days, maybe play that on PC first.

Thanks! I never played 400 Days on the 360, so I'll likely grab that for PC.

Part of me is tempted to re-play all of season one, but I don't think I can justify the time I'd have to spend on it.

You can use it an an excuse to choose Doug. No one ever chooses Doug.

Season 1, Episode 1. Doug was the option at the end undertaken by no one ever.

I mean you can choose between a badass chick with a gun that has already saved your life once...or a fatman who is wearing socks and sandals during the zombie apocalypse...the choice is clear. lol

Slight Walking Dead Season One spoilers ahoy!

I always feel so bad for Doug. He made a cool Adventure Game Troupe reference minutes after meeting him, but even the game itself doesn’t want you to pick him. If you pick him, you completely lose the option to admit your past crimes to the group early on, and they unavoidably resent you for it later. And poor Doug’s still written out shortly after that.

As a cool note, the Carla/Doug Easter egg in 400 days is seemingly set to Doug by default.

Did anyone pick the farmer's son over Duck? He's not the loser Doug is, but I can't imagine him getting many nods over a child.

I picked Sean. And I'd do it again.

My very first playthrough of episode 1 I picked Sean...it seemed like he was a pretty decent guy and he would be easy to save with just a leg being stuck.
