Heavy Rain with zombies. That’s the best way to sum up Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead: A New Day - the first episode of five planned installments. When you first hear the phrase “Walking Dead video game,” your brain automatically dreams up something more akin to the Resident Evil franchise: conserving ammo and blasting away rotting dead things. Instead, Telltale focused on what lies at the very heart of Walking Dead: moral conflict and character interaction. If you’re looking for a mindless shoot-em-up gorefest, this is NOT the game for you.
[AWESOME] Quality voice acting, expressive character design that brings the comic’s art style to life, branching paths that will have you wanting to replay chapters more than once.
[NOT AWESOME] Fixed camera angles make walking around cumbersome at times, branching dialogue trees don’t always give you enough time to read all the choices before answering and sometimes your answers won’t register.
AS THE WORLD TURNS though I walk alone I am never on my own how can I not confuse family with friends even though that is exactly what somebody told me this was more than a chapter but the heart of the whole damn book I had my best friend by my side when I learned my father died Ive seen strangers become friends and then turn into brothers in just a few short weeks away from home it is crazy when they tell me that this is just screams to a beat when I know it’s what shot you into my veins glue that binds, a weapon that defines us and I would be so lost without them ive seen strangers become friends and then turn into brothers in just a few short weeks on the road bonds so much stronger than the time they took to form and will last me the rest of my days it is crazy when they tell me that this is just screams to a beat when i know its what shot you into my veins glue that binds, a weapon that defines us and I would be so lost without you though I walk alone I am never on my own cuz the places we’ve been become the times we have shared and they crash like waves and mark these days and I don’t go anywhere without them I took the whole damn ride with my best friends by my side the days turned into nights and we held on with all our might cuz nothing stays no way, no how there’s no forever the only thing that lasts forever is right fucking now
