So I just received this in my twitter feed...

I have a bad feeling about this.

    well... it's before the show, so the very beginning of the apocalypse, seems like they don't know how bad a bite is just yet.
    Keeping the mind calm is usually preferred than going nuts. Sometime's really hard to be in such condition admittedly.
  • The game is listed on Steam, due to come out on the 19th. So I'm not sure if that article I posted about the PC version being cancelled was bad, or if Activision changed their mind.

    The marketing, or lack thereof, of this game has been really weird. Especially considering all the reviews I've been reading haven't been bad. They haven't been great either, but it's not looking like it will be the disaster I was predicting. I'll wait for a price drop or sale on this one.
  • If it's on PC, I'll think about it and wait a discount.
  • On PC?

    I expect modders to improve the game where needed. :p

    Mods are awesome, but you can't really fix a game that is fundamentally broken, especially when no mod tools are provided.
  • So from everything I've heard from all sorts of different sources, this is a not bad, not great, completely average zombie shooter that probably would have been an XBLA game if not for the seemingly unexpected popularity of the Telltale game. Close?

    I haven't found an XBLA (Arcade) that stands up as being a decent shooter, they all try to be like Call of Duty and Battlefield, but because they have a lower budget and less resources the result isn't quite what they expected.

    However, if it were to be on XBLA, it'd probably cost around 1600 MSP ($20), 2100 MSP ($26) or more.

    I prefer retail disc game collections because they're on disc, although I don't avoid XBLA titles, I've bought a couple of them.

    Definitely not worth $50.
    Actual retail price is around $40. It's up for pre-order on Amazon for $37.49.

    As has been stated, the gameplay, graphics and voice acting looks pretty dang subpar. I'd just be interested in it for the backstory it provides.

    Conclusion: Tell Tale is 1000% better
