Our X1 videos of The Walking Dead S1

Our X1 videos of The Walking Dead S1

After invading old gen consoles and PC, the first two seasons of The Walking Dead are now available on Xbox One and Playstation 4. If you have never player either one and you are longing for an immersive story that makes you care for its protagonists, look no further. It's just a shame the first season you can see here is still plagued with technical issues, with slowdowns and even blinking character models impacting a bit on the overall experience. Everyone knows that Telltale's engine isn't the series' strong suit, but it's high time they start putting some effort into it. I mean they have made enough money in the past few years to optimize their games, haven't they? Anyhow, it's still a great game, which I guess is the bottom line at the end of time. As usual with our Xbox One coverage, we have to thank the Xbox Network for sending us this digital copy of the game.

Hmm with so many projects in the pipeline I would hope this studio would start expanding their team. Or have multiple teams working on the different projects AND multitude of platforms these games will come to too.

The miss-spelling of the title makes it sound like a cheap knock off of the Telltales series. :)

Well, I was just waking up. :)

They should just ditch their current engine and go with the Unreal Engine 4 imo. I really hope that they won't go "painterly" style again for their upcoming GoT game...

I thougth the "painterly" style did not harm the game.
An artistic style helps transporting the story. If the game would be photorealistic it would be a lot harder to convince in the same way and transport similar feelings.

I played The Walking Dead on my iPhone with earplugs and couldn't stop playing until it was finished. Really loved this first game.

    SplitTongue @MikeManiac61: Screw that. The day such a controversial shit flick airs i'm going to move to a 3rd world country with no tv, cinemas or internet. I've had enough. (3 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @SplitTongue: that sounds funny though, but alas people would get their panties in a twist over it. (3 Hours ago)

    SplitTongue Not long ago, I've seen a funny fake movie poster of Martin Luther King being played by a white actor "for the sake of diversity". Can you imagine the backlash this would be getting? (4 Hours ago)

    SplitTongue Personally I would've reserved the "V" to BF V(ietnam) (4 Hours ago)

    SplitTongue Tbh I think the backlash is deserved. Fans asked for a ww2 setting, not an alternative past ww2 setting. If they wanted their designers to get creative they should've sticked to 2143 maybe ? (4 Hours ago)

    droezelke @GriftGFX: No, that is my whole point. If they put women and minorities in there, and that becomes a controversy (Remember Sarkeesian), than I will care. No reverse sexism and racism bs. All equal. (4 Hours ago)

    aphex187 Watched the Frags video again which shows it in slow motion and it does look nuts but kinda intrigues me tbh. (4 Hours ago)
