the walking dead
The Walking Dead was one of the best video games of 2012, hands down, so it's with great anticipation that we reloaded Telltale Games' blog this afternoon to see what's coming down the pike for the game's second season.
From what we can tell, it won't disappoint. Be warned: The info below and the trailer for the game may include a few spoilers for those who haven't played the first game yet, namely in terms of which characters survive and which don't.

Season four of The Walking Dead, AMC’s television adaptation of the Eisner-winning Image Comics series created by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore and drawn by Charlie Adlard is underway. While the survivors grapple with the apocalypse and each other, ComicsAlliance’s John Parker will be following along all season to see who lives, who dies, and who bleeds from all their orifices.
In last week’s episode, a deadly flu virus spread through the prison, walkers got in, illusions of youth were shattered, and two mysteries were introduced: who is feeding the walkers, and who set fire to two infected survivors?
Season four of The Walking Dead, AMC’s television adaptation of the Eisner-winning Image Comics series created by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore and drawn by Charlie Adlard, is finally underway. While the survivors grapple with the apocalypse and each other, ComicsAlliance’s John Parker will be following along all season to see who lives, who dies, and who rises.
In last week’s premiere, the survivors were firmly entrenched in their home, where they had managed to build a thriving community behind the safety of the prison walls. Just as the episode ended, though, a new threat emerged from within the prison itself, placing everyone inside in immediate danger.
Season four of The Walking Dead, AMC's television adaptation of the the Eisner-winning comic series created by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore, debuted this weekend. ComicsAlliance will be following along all season to see who survives.
By the end of Season 3, Rick and the other survivors successfully repelled the Woodbury invasion, Merle was killed, Milton was killed, Andrea was killed, Carl shot a kid when he didn’t have to, The Governor gunned down his own army, and Glen Mazzara was run out of town. Having defended the prison and leaving the young and old of Woodbury without protection, Rick took in the remaining citizens, giving his own group more mouths to feed and himself more people to feel responsible for.
Last season’s finale left the viewer with a lot of questions: How would the family deal with the new responsibility? Could the prison successfully protect them all? Is The Governor coming back? Has Rick lost it? Is Carl crazy, uniquely adapted to survive in a zombie apocalypse, or just an ungrateful little snot with way too stylish a haircut for the end times? Does anybody care that Comic Book Men exists? And of course, the most important question, the theme that’s been hammered into us since the very first episode: can you do what it takes to survive in this world and still be a good person?
