The Walking Dead

  (Edited: )

Sean has mentioned it a few times in the daily.  And because of this, I picked it up.  I started it when it was 4 Episodes in.  Anxiously waiting for the next one.  It's an adventure game.  There are important decisions that allow you to mold the story to the way you prefer.

If you want to see the game play, I'd suggest watching the first 5-10 minutes of someone playing episode 1.  Otherwise if you hate SPOILERS.  Stay away :D.  Although, it won't give you that many spoilers and it'll give you a feel of the game.  If you like it, great! :D If not, thanks for checking it out!
