Im still ify about the street value after it releases, but I think this might be one of the very few packages that caters to different ppl. 1. Game collectors, 2.comic book collects and 3.the tv series fans. Taking into consideration that this might appeal to multiple ppl, on that I would say that this package will retain its value and maybe even go $100-$125. Well that's my opinion.

Dunno if it's been posted already (probably has) but the Xbox version seems to be unavailable to pre-order now from GS.com

I'm a sucker for gorgeous CE's, and although I'm loving TWD (show/game), there's no way I'd spend $70 for what is essentially just the comic since I already beat the the episodes and have no intention of revisiting them (as much as I liked it).

I'm astonished at the amount of people on here willing to pay $70 for a downloadable game.

they arent paying 70 for a downloadable game. they are paying 70 for a physical copy of the game(all 5 episodes). again the significance is walking dead's popularity is based off its content and art, which the case is trying to appeal. then you get the "exlusive" box( i know i know, its a box bbut when you have the ce sometimes you keep the box), and you get the first compendium which is a 40 dollar value, which comes with an exclusive cover meaning itll be a bit rarer. so just dont.

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.


You're right. I've gotten similar quotes from my cousin and friends who have completed all episodes. I recently beat Hitman Absolution and it took me about 10-12 hours but I'll be replaying it at least 2 more times for the challenges and on higher difficulties. TWD I'll probably play through once on 360 and possibly once on PS3 since I got the first 2 episodes free through PS+ and might as well complete it there too. Not much replay value is my main concern. With such a backlog that's a good thing I guess.

Anybody?


I have the limited edition pre-ordered for the 360, and I'm not opening it, but to buy to play, I'd go with PC. Something about a point and click game and and analog stick just doesn't sound right to me. I don't know. If I had to pick though, I'd go 360 for the controller. I couldn't imagine there being much of a difference between them.

Your right. During Ch. 1-4 I roughly spend 2 an half hours making tough decisions for Clementine & my crew. So of course am getting the C.E next week because I haven't read the comic & am a huge fan of the TV series & maybe hopefully the trophies stack up with the digital version. Double the platinum :bouncy:.

Damn, I preordered this thing to resell, but after much thought I think I might just keep it. Been wanting to play the game and the comics sound like an interesting read, and I am a huge huge huge fan of the tv series. I was kinda regretting the whole purchase but when u think about it, for a fan of a series that is huge in popularity owning something this limited is a pretty cool thing.

If they had also thrown in the first season of the TV show, would have bit. As it stands I have a Season Pass for the game already.

Disappointed I can't play this today. How hard is it to slap a downloadable game on a disc and send it out? It's probably going to be like the Resident Evil 4/CV, Journey, ME1, etc. physical copies where it's just the PSN download with disc verification. It should have been out the same day as the final episode - not week(s) later.

Only a few sold at that price though and they included shipping. Several sold at $100 with free shipping which is not much profit at all especially if you live in a state with tax and then have to pay the 13% Paypal/Ebay fees. You're gonna end up clearing literally $10.

Is there a picture of the Best Buy exclusive cover anywhere? I'm trying to decide whether I should get the standard edition from Amazon or Best Buy.

If you look at the Amazon cover and compare it to the Best Buy cover you'll notice they're different. It's subtle but the covers are different. There's also an ad for the game in the December @Gamer magazine that has a slightly different cover compared to the one on Best Buy link. It has a Best Buy logo on the bottom advertising the LE poster inside. There's also a small picture of the poster as well.

Anyone know if the episodes are actually on the disc or do you have to install them?

I guess I should have looked closer. I see it now. I was expecting something completely different I guess. Thanks

Hmm...unless I'm mistaken, the BBY cover doesn't depict the characters on the Amazon cover, only walkers, which, one could argue, means that only "the walking dead" are on the BBY cover and as such, the game title fits even more so.

...I'm probably overthinking this.

You know what? I actually flipped through one of the comic collections and saw that on the last page. I just completely forgot about it until now. :-#

It did make my jaw drop, though, because it just sounded ominous in that "awesome" way and like the property more than before. I watched the show's first season, stopped when the second season started, and never really felt like getting back into the third season; based on what I've seen of the comic, however, and the review scores I've seen for the individual episodes for the Telltale games, I'm definitely interested in this collection.

The PS3 version is now gone as well, so that's it.

Just yesterday at lunch I went to my local Game Stop and preordered the PS3 version, so I just barely got in!
