Can't believe there isn't a thread for this! Used search and nothing came up. Anyways it's a episodic game from Telltale (Back to the Future, Jurassic Park, Strongbad, etc) that tells the story of two new characters based in The Walking Dead universe. I am a huge fan of the show and this game looks like it'll do it justice!

Episode one of a five-part game series set in the same universe as Robert Kirkman’s award-winning series. Play as Lee Everett, a convicted criminal, who has been given a second chance at life in a world devastated by the undead. Experience events, meet people and visit locations that foreshadow the story of Deputy Sheriff Rick Grimes. A tailored game experience – actions, choices and decisions you make will affect how your story plays out across the entire series. Additional episodes available as downloadable content.




I saw a bunch of release dates that said today, however it's not available yet and IGN has it listed as the 30th for Xbox. Still can't wait!

I've been waiting for it to drop today as well, but that doesn't look to be the case. Wack. Anyway it looks rather promising and a decent distraction until I can get my hands on a copy of The Witcher 2.

2-3 hours for episode 1. Just finished it. Cant wait for the next episode. They show a trailer at the end of episode 2, making you want it even more.

I was going to wait for the 360 version, but $4.99 off the full season and the theme pushed me into getting the PS3 version, so worth it.

Yes, what I meant was I was pushing it waiting till today and now I have to wait till Friday. I might end up breaking down and just getting the PS3 version, sucks though cause 360 is my personal preference.

That's going to be a long wait for just a hunch. You're talking about the end of the 5 parts, and if it even happens it will most likely retail for $29.99.

Personally, I don't think they'll release a disc in the states for the 360. I'm down for 400 on Friday.

I just think its leaving money on the table if they don't. A Walking Dead game on the shelves would be a major seller. Not everyone has adapted to DLC and download only games as well as CAGs have. I'm gonna cave and get Episode 1. I know I will, but I don't think a boxed release is as much of a long shot as you think.

I just played through it on PS3 and this may be one I'll double dip for on 360, just because of how god damn awesome it is. There's so many choices and you really feel like they all have an effect on the outcome. I had an absolute blast playing through the first episode and the wait for number two is going to be killer. I'm gonna replay the episode once more right now actually.

Not trying to be mean but good luck getting a deal on the 360 version anytime soon. Telltale had to make a special agreement with MS to even get this on 360 since MS doesn't allow episodic content. The "main game" comes out for $5 tomorrow and each episode after that will be released as a game add-on for $5 each.

Only deal on it is $20 on PSN and you get a free Premium XMB w/purchase. Even PC people have to pay $25 for the entire series.

Like others I got this on PS3, which if you care, will be the easiest Platinum trophy in the history of PSN. All the trophies are just completing each chapter of the episode (all bronzes until the final chapter of the episode as a Silver, then a Gold for completing the episode, then a Platinum for completing all 5 episodes.) No special conditions or nothing.

I bet the max gamerscore you'll get on this game is a few hundred points. But we should be thankful it's even on 360, as 360 owners have missed out on Sam and Max and Back to the Future. Those worried about the last TellTale action point and click, Jurassic Park, don't be, they got this right.

Beware the demo is VERY short and is just one scene to get you used to the controls. If the download is the same size as on PS3, it's just under 500 MB.

As others have said, the teaser at the end of Episode 1 is awesome. I think the scenes slightly change depending on your choices (of which there are 5 major ones and a bunch of minor ones.) For those that get stuck, IGN Wiki's already has a guide up. On the PS3, at the end, it says how many players chose the same way as you. I'm assuming it's platform specific but not 100% sure.

I think there will be a disc release, but it won't be until the fall after all the episodes are out and will be a limited print run, just like BTTF was. Episode 5 won't be out until August so I expect the disc release to be October or November.

A mere ten minutes into the trial and I'm ALREADY addicted. This is going to be one hell of an amazing game. Just wish it were a full console release instead but no way am I complaining.

I think I'm going this route as well. The days between episodes of the show felt long, especially during the second half of this last season. I'll just stick to being ignorant on how great the game is till all the content is released. If Telltale does stick to the monthly schedule, we should get the last episode in August, which is approximately two months before S3 of the show starts. I'm going to guess we'll get a Deal of the Week discounting the game/dlc somewhere around there. We might even see a retail disc release by then.
