Sanges99, Davivascaino is pointing that there's no option for you to change the up is down, down is up control option. You know, like the flight simulators, where you pull down to go up and push up to go down... For me, I can't stand inverted controls, UP is UP, DOWN is DOWN...

I probably get the disc version when there's a deal... Like the other games, disc version will have separate trophies :)


Are you sure there's seperate trophies? The download already has a Platinum. I think they learned their lesson after BttF.

Did you seriously watermark a stock pic with your own info...?


Seriously, I did. :booty:

In jest, I added a watermark like many gaming websites would do. Click on the IGN link in the OP, they did just that. It was a parody, a joke, as I alluded to in an earlier reply.

OP, are you the same litepink who's an administrator at TrueAchievements?


Just a staff member but yes, that's me :)

I can't help myself, I need to say it:
WHUT. IN THE HELL. ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT.
Okay, that's all I have to add, and I'll be here waiting patiently for your answer.


And (I guess I wasn't quite done) to anyone thinking about flipping these for their "collector's value" later on, consider the size and weight of this sucker; this is going to cost an absolute fortune to ship.


You never played Mario or Mega man with inverted camera controls?!? ......geez

I didn't realize other gaming websites actually put their own watermarks. I avoid giving IGN clicks but I guess it's ok if they put a watermark if they're the first hand source.

While this is the least "CE" CE I've ever seen, I like it. The price is the same (going through Gamestop, I realize the compendium is $4 cheaper at Amazon) if you get the game and compendium separately or bundled together. Gamers can't complain that they're not getting the complete experience since there isn't any exclusive DLC. Gamers don't have to buy the CE if they're not interested in the compendium. I think the exclusive cover also entices the more hardcore comic fans. Just browsing the completed auctions of the #100 cover variants on eBay, some of the covers fetched more than others. It really depends on how many are produced.

Two bigger pictures of the one in the OP:

il probably just buy the book and the game separately down the line...there's nothing really exclusive that makes me want to get it at full price.

Wow, talk about dropping the ball with this one, that's pretty weak for a "Collector's Edition". Oh well, better this way so I'm not tempted to spend money I probably shouldn't be spending right now but still a bummer for the missed opportunity to actually do something really good.

Value shipping is $3.49. Is there any free shipping codes floating around?

SAVER works, but when you go to checkout it says the item in the cart doesn't qualify.

I wish they would fix the store credit tax charge on online orders. I don't get charged tax in-store when I use store credit.

Noticed this on TWD's facebook page, thought it was interesting. Sorry if its already been talked about.

The Walking Dead: The Game


Have you heard the news? With a current target release date of Dec 4th in North America, The Walking Dead: The Game from Telltale Games is coming to retailers with all five game episodes from season one for $29.99 (MSRP) on disc.

A second season in our future sometime?...

Statement made in July:

"Following the digital release of our fifth episode we will also be coming to North American retail shortly thereafter and this will not be the last The Walking Dead game series that we do."

I think that's the extent of information about it. That's the last word that I heard and it's not an official announcement. Of course I can't imagine they wouldn't after all of the success it's had.

Like the other games, disc version will have separate trophies :)


Can you, or someone, else confirm that? That's the deal breaker for me being I already played through this great game.

Its nice to know that I can come over here and at least find some like-minded comments about stuff like this. So sick of going to other sites and seeing "OMG WHAT AN AMAZING DEAL" BS.

I've got a ton of credit and I need the compendium(borrowed the first three hardcover collections from a friend and bought the next three), so even though I have this for Steam, I'd love to have it for my xbox as well.

I'm really glad the show and hype is getting people interested, my only real gripe is why now, you people are late to the party! If you had a PS3 should have got the season pass when it was 19.99. Was great deal and have been using the free dynamic theme ever since.

I have the Hardcover editions of the comic series and own both compendiums. I loan out the compendiums to friends who want to read it but if you are looking to "own" the comic series the hardcover books are worth dropping the cash on. They are bigger pages, better quality paper and the right size and weight for reading. The compendiums are really bulky and only comfortable reading laying on a table.

That being said if you get the game digital for $25 and the compendium for the $36 its going for on Amazon you are only saving $10 from the CE. The new cover art, retail copy and exclusive artwork is worth it for the extra $10 imho. If you waited this long to play and read the comics then a couple more months won't hurt. If you are serious about the comics though I would suggest skipping it, jumping on the digital version and start collecting the Hardcover books of the series.

Next year, there will also be a walking dead FPS. It's being made by activision. Hopefully that game is going to as good as this.

Backlog or not enough time to get to it really. I am a PS+ member and got Episodes 1-2 free, but never got around to playing them. Once I heard about a physical release, I just deleted the downloaded episodes so I can play through all the episodes at once instead. Plus I rather own it on disc than digitally.

But Walking Dead transcends backlogs.

Yep. I also prefer a physical disc, and I didn't want to get hosed like I did with the BttF disc version so I waited it out.

And ya, it's $25 for pre-order.

I'll probably pass on the Limited Edition, but I'm definitely picking up the regular version. Been hoping for a disc release of this since I no longer buy downloadable games/content.

I'm all over this if they make stackable trophy lists. I would like an excuse to play the game and see the different outcomes.


If by stackable you mean you can re-earn the same trophies a second time, that probably won't happen. At least it didn't with Journey/Flower/fl0w or the Back to the Future compilation.
