The Walking Dead game serves one million copies

Telltale has a lot to be excited about -- if there was a zombie apocalypse today, they'd have tons of cash on hand to start building a their own zombie-proof fortification.

According to Telltale themselves, The Walking Dead Episode 1 is "Telltale's fastest-selling game series to date", and has sold one million episodes after holding top sales spots on the Xbox Live Arcade, Steam, and PSN networks. That's quite a return to glory after the lackluster Jurassic Park: The Game!

I'm really happy for Telltale, as Episode 1 is incredibly fun and fairly robust for a $5 purchase. It helps that the game is based on the comics and not the TV series, as it has a lot more pre-existing lore to pull from: the fact that it's canon (in regards to the comics) probably enticed more potential fans. It's also one of the only mediums that didn't present an insufferable minor in an apocalyptic setting (I'm referencing Clementine -- Duck is terrible). I can't wait for Episode 2, which hits in June.

Feel crappy all over again with the credits theme from the latest Walking Dead

Oh Walking Dead: Season 2: Episode 2, how crappy you made me feel with every single one of my choices. More so than any other past episode, I was beside myself every time I had to make sweet little Clemente decide anything. ...more

The Walking Dead's next episode is set for early March

A few weeks ago, Telltale dropped the nebulous detail that the second episode of season two of The Walking Dead was "just around the corner." We didn't know it at that point, but it appears as though the developer's defi...more

I'm happy a game like Shelter 2 can exist

Badgers were cute in Shelter, but I prefer the lynxes of Shelter 2 -- still adorable and higher up on the food chain. This is a survival game in which you begin as a pregnant lynx, a first for the medium, I'm sure. You'll ma...more
