Review – The Walking Dead Episodes 1 and 2

I’m not much of an XBL Arcade guy, but I can’t get enough zombies let alone The Walking Dead so this series was a natural fit for me. After burning through the first 2 episodes, am I still ravenous for more? In short…YES!

The wizards at Telltale Games had the dubious task of putting players into the world that Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard crafted and they did so by building an Episodic game that puts the player in the role of Lee Everett, a man who we’re introduced to as he’s being hauled off to prison after being convicted of murder a state Senator. In usual fashion, we won’t go into too much detail on the story so as to preserve the integrity of the game for those of you who haven’t yet ad the opportunity to experience it.

The games mechanics are simple but somehow feel refined in a way that lend themselves well game. Simply put, move the character around with the thumb sticks, press the correct button over hotspots that pop up  in the on screen target and pick your responses to character dialogue scenes. As a kid in the 80s, choose your own adventure books were a staple in my house, what Telltale did was take that concept and turn it into a videogame which works amazingly well and lends to the need for multiple play throughs as your dialogue decisions can directly affect the way the story plays out and how people will react to you as a character.

The graphics feel as though they were lifted directly from the pages of the comic books which in my opinion is incredible. I loved the  overall feel of the package from the graphics, to the moody sound editing and overall feel of desperation and fear that came with the game. I’m of the opinion that Capcom can learn a thing or 2 from this series and the story telling that goes along with it – or just hire Telltale to do a proper Resident Evil game.

Much like the TV and comic series, at the end of each episode, I found myself clamoring for more. So much so that I started Episode 1 over again when I finished Episode 2 just to see how different things can play out with different decisions.

Pros
– Graphics
– Multiple choices can directly change the outcome of the game
– Much moodier and more exciting than the last 2 Resident Evil games
– Sound Editing was fantastic

Cons
– I would like for the episodes to be longer

Feed Your Console give The Walking Dead Game a 9 out of 10

Forza 4 Adds 10 Cars In The Top Gear Car Pack

Get ready Gear heads the May car pack for Forza 4 is coming soon and it has a great line up of cars for your driving pleasure. From the super hot Hennessey Venom GT to the stoner/rocker classic, the 1977 AMC Pacer X.

The May Top Gear Car Pack features the following 10 cars:

  • 2012 Hennessey Venom GT – The Venom GT is ambition personified. Designed to beat the Bugatti Veyron’s 0-200 mph time, the car is defined by pure, unadulterated power. The result is impressive—the Venom reaches 0-200 mph in less time than it takes your average car to reach 0-60 mph.
  • 1977 AMC Pacer X – Wayne and Garth never had it so good (Party on Wayne, Party on Garth). With classic 70s style and a 232-cubic-inch, 3.8 litre, inline six, the Pacer X was modest on power, but its legacy lives on today. Take it for a ride in “Forza Motorsport 4,” preferably with “Bohemian Rhapsody” cranked nice and loud.
  • 2011 Ford Transite SuperSportVan – The SuperSportVan is the latest creation in the long-standing series of Ford-built custom fans, which dates back to 1971. Designed to prove that Ford engineers know how to have fun, this version is a one-off design shown at a 2011 UK commercial vehicle show.
  • 2012 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon – The 2012 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon is by far the most comfortable and amenity-loaded Wrangler ever. It’s grittier too, with 40 per cent more horsepower than older models, making this Jeep just as comfortable on the track as it is on the trails.
  • 1966 Lotus Cortina – One of the first “race on Sunday, commute on Monday” factory cars, the Lotus Cortina built its reputation both on the tarmac and in folks’ daily lives. Packing 115-horsepower and weighing just over a ton, the Cortina can carry four people in relative comfort, but it’s most happy when being revved high and thrown into a corner with full gusto.
  • 1992 Mitsubishi Galant VR-4 – The turbo-charged Mitsubishi Galant VR-4 is a treasured piece of JDM history. The VR-4 was sold in limited numbers and its four-wheel drive, four-wheel-steering handling highlights technology that caters to a driving experience matched only by much more expensive sedans.
  • 2012 Smart ForTwo – The uncontested winner of the “easy to park” award, the Smart ForTwo is the first micro car to be introduced in the U.S. At just 106-inches long, the ForTwo is by far the smallest production car ever made. It’s a practical, urban errand runner whose looks will always spark a conversation.
  • 1990 Subaru Legacy RS – Putting aside its smaller, quirkier wagons and sedans, Subaru brought new game to dealerships in 1990 with the Legacy RS. More substantial in nearly every respect, the Legacy RS Turbo was the most powerful Subaru model available and still enjoys a strong following among Subie enthusiasts.
  • 2012 Chrysler 300 SRT8 – Packing a huge HEMI under its hood that makes for more than 450 horsepower, the Chrysler 300 SRT8 packs a potent combination of power and sophistication. The 300 will go hit 0-60 in under five seconds and will nail the quarter mile in less than 13 seconds. It might not be what you expect from a Chrysler these days… and that’s precisely the point.
  • 1965 Austin-Healey 3000 MkIII – Hand-crafted beauty and grin-widening performance define the 1965 Austin-Healey 3000 MkIII. With a 147-horsepower, six-cylinder overhead valve engine, the Healey–or “Squealy” as it was often called–delivers an exhilarating open-air ride and grippy cornering.

See you on the Track!
