Our videos of The Walking Dead

When I heard that Telltale was going to make a game adaptation of The Walking Dead, I must say I was a bit concerned. See, I am a huge fan of the comic book and I have not even dared to watch the TV series, so considering that their previous work on Jurassic Park (and Back To The Future to some extent) had been disappointing, I feared the worst. It turns out I was wrong and I don't regret purchasing the first season, the first episode being rather promising in terms of storytelling. Sure, it is more or less a sort of interactive graphic novel, where you are forced to make choices and take full responsibilities of your actions, but it is really faithful to the comic book and it definitely oozes atmosphere. If you're interested, stay away from our videos, as I think you don't want to spoil anything of what happens, especially if you haven't seen any gameplay footage yet. Our 1080p videos were captured at 60 fps and are obviously from the PC version.

This was a great game. I love the feeling of survival and the focus on staying alive.

Guess i am with b0vril at this. The show is crap. Some of the worst writing i have ever seen so far. Boring Characters annoying conversations and terrible directing. Wanna see something that i worth your time ? Try Sons of Anarchy , Braking Bad , Shameless (us) , Justified or Game of Thrones.
Having Zombies in the setting does nor equall quality...

considering the walking dead isnt even much about zombies (in the TV show, Comic, or game), i dont get the comment about it equalling quality?

as for the shows you listed. the only decent one there is shameless (UK) not that pile of wank US version. the others bored the tits off me.

You didn't like Braking Bad? I think it's pretty great.

Can we all just agree that nothing touches The Wire.

Walking dead is fucking excellent.

The Wire IS great;) Saying Sons of Anarchy isnt a great show...well ...there is nothing to discuss with ignorant ppl cause I DONT CARE !!!!

I agree with KORNdog on this one. The walking dead tv series, all you got to do is put yourself in their shoes. It's not about zombies it's about survival, emotions and mental stress with yourself and other people. You only get that if you watch the series. People couldn't handle the pressure. Be glad you can play video games and eat and sleep and shit. lol

^^ So its ok for YOU not to like something and say its "crap" but its not ok for someone to say something is crap

Sounds like your the ignorant one here.

Note that Braking Bad would be an interesting title for a different kind of TV series. ^^

I actually enjoy the TV-Show. It's not the best one out there but still quite entertaining. (From what I have gathered are it mostly the readers of the comic who are complaining)

Game is great btw.
Imho did Telltale with this a better job at "interactive story telling" than Heavy Rain.

I find the show unbearably melodramatic. The dialogue is just frustratingly poor.

I mean, the dialogue in the comic is pretty goofy & over the top, but the plot would move like there's no tomorrow, which makes it great fun to read. Of course with the TV show it's dragged the hell out.
