I know this is based on the comics and not the TV series (I know that's also based on the comics too to anyone who really believed I didn't know that) But I've been meaning to watch the TV series and keep forgetting. Would playing through this be good or bad for me in terms of spoilers?


Aside from a cameo by Glenn, this is entirely separate from the show. And it's all the better for that.

Is the compendium a hardcover?

Nope.

From Gamestop's product details : Featuring cover art exclusive to the Collector's Edition, this is the first 48 issues of the fan-favorite, New York Times Best Seller series collected into one massive paperback collection! Over one thousand pages chronicle the beginning of Robert Kirkman's Eisner Award-winning continuing story of survival horror- from Rick Grimes waking up alone in hospital, to him and his family seeking solace on Hershel's farm, and the controversial introduction of Woodbury despot: The Governor.

A book that costs less than $35 on Amazon and one of the worst "games" of all time for only $70? Where do I sign up?!


Woah, tell us how you really feel. Book is 35 and the game is 30, so ur paying an extra $5 bucks for the exclusive cover/art I guess.

Sucks it's GS exclusive but remember, they don't make shit off msrp sales.


This was exactly the thought that came to me. New game sales don't make them much money at all, they just increase traffic to their site and stores.

Wow, not to start a pointless fight, but good grief, a lot of folks love this game.
Worst games of the year? Come on, did you even play it?
Great story, choices that mean something, I thought it was one of the best games all year.

That being said this is to expensive for what you get.

One of the very few games that received both critical and commercial praise, and was a massive success this year
Pathetic? Come on seriously, you're straight trolling now. This game crossed boundaries for a lotta people. Even folks who were strictly dude bro shooter guys were getting into this.

No way you played this.

It's still $5 for a standard edition but the deposit for a CE went up to $25 in late March/early April. Basically GS is trying to stop having a glut of CE sitting in stores waiting to be marked down to nothing prices before anyone looks at them.

Of course there's still a bunch of stores sitting on the SF 25th Collection 7 weeks after release when GS marks it down $50 and I can't get an adjustment anymore, grrr.

Also if you don't like Walking Dead, that's fine you can have an opinion. But don't say it's a terrible game when it's not, just you don't like it.

Lots of people loved Dishonored, and I hated the combat and traded it in right after getting it with B2G1F on BF. After being roasted 13 straight deaths by the guys in the first side mission in the brewery where you're supposed to poison the booze and these guys go Skyrim dragon breath on you as soon as they see you I said F this and traded it in.

Lol at all the outrage. Sorry, but some of us play games for gameplay. I adore The Walking Dead, but the game is fucking pathetic.


If all you want is gameplay, then The Walking Dead is admittedly not for you. But it is one of the most powerful and emotionally moving games I have ever played. It gave me experiences I never imagined I'd get out of a game. The last moments of Episode 5 are going to stick with me for a while.

This was easily one of the best experiences in gaming I've ever had.

It is interactive in the sense that one of these is interactive:

Spoiler


That said, I wouldn't call it a bad game. It's certainly lacking in the traditional game play elements you'd expect in an adventure game but the writing is excellent.

Good to know. I am waiting for the street fighter markdown myself. Also everyone I talk to and most rpint articles all praised the walking dead game so I find it funny at all the comments. It is like they are talking about another game.


It's down to $100 right now, I guess you can wait to see if it goes lower.

Just a quick heads up...

The 360 version of this is no longer available. PS3 is still up for time being...

If you were on the fence you might want to jump on it.

So does anyone have an idea which console would be a better fit for this? I'm considering preordering the standard edition, but I'd appreciate a heads-up on whether it's better on either system.

$10 says in 6 years people will be paying $100 on eBay for the game with the different box art


People are already paying $100+ for the set now on eBay. o.O So the game by itself, probably.

I had this LE preordered but I think I'll cancel and save my $25. With the game being so short I'll wait for a price drop or rent it. I probably won't read the compendium anytime soon so I can wait.

I wouldn't say it's exactly short. I would say on my first playthrough, I took a total of maybe fifteen hours on the whole five chapters. I tend to take my time, but that's still better than a lot of mainstream titles.

Yeah, I wouldn't call it short, but it's certainly not long either. I spent about 2-3 hours on each chapter, so probably around 12 hours total.

I'm not much into which system the games are better on, I think they are pretty much the same, but comes down to either achievements or trophies, and Xbox live or psn network. Which my personal favorite is live with the achievements, but everyone to their own liking. However my ps3 is one hell of a movie player, dark knight rises tomorrow lol.
