    @feenwager I hear you. Howabout free to play MMO’s? D&D, Lord of the Rings, Age of Conan. Do some quests, get it out of your system, never pay a cent. Hopefully Wasteland 2, the only game I’ve kickstarted, will actually be that game we’re looking for.

    And HELL YES, Episode 2 of the Walking Dead game was amazing and messed up! You know those decisions in Mass Effect where you don’t know whether to shoot a guy who is holding a hostage or keep talking to him? This game is ALL those, except there’s no easy paragon/renegade choice, there’s more of a snap, gut reaction involved, and the choices that best help your survival are often the hardest god damn decisions you’ll ever make, and you have this little girl watching you make them…

    @angryjedi I would love to screw around in Minecraft with you guys. I can show you my bridge to nowhere, and my enormous unfinished castle… and then I can lock you up and force you to mine and finish said unfinished castle. Yesssssss.

    @unmanneddrone It will, almost everything that has lost on that community vote has showed up in either the daily or flash sales.

    @zegolf Go ahead and jump on that $15 Walking Dead deal, unless you want to play all the episodes at once later (and for cheaper).

    I played the first episode last night and as someone who has read the comic, I was pleasantly surprised. The writing is great and the human drama is right where it needs to be, the dialogue especially. Characters feel three dimensional. Do I console this little girl like I’m her father, just lie to her to make her feel better, or tell her the cold hard truth? Do I trust this guy I just met? Should I be honest with him, tell him half-truths, or lie altogether, just in case? Will I remember my lies? Will that bite me in the ass later if I need his help? Responses are timed and it has a very genuine feel to it. Of course, there are some fucked up snap decisions you need to make, and then consequences you need to live with.

    Even the adventure gamey “what order do I need to do stuff in to solve problem X” sections are handled well enough so that they work with the story, and you know, the ever present threat of walkers crashing the party. That said, it’s not perfect either. Some of the voicework for less important characters and animation can be subpar or weird at times, and why the hell does this reporter, who can use a gun like she’s in special forces, not know that appliances sometimes need batteries, or how to put them in correctly…

    Anyway, so far I like the main character, Lee. He’s a man with some serious baggage. I want to see where he ends up in this mess. Five episodes doesn’t seem like enough. Movin’ on to episode 2 tonight.

    @angryjedi I don’t think it’s an unfair comparison, but at the same time at no point while playing it did I think, “hey, this is just like Heavy Rain.”

    For my money, it’s far less gimmicky and far better voice acted.

    The easy knock is that there are many parts of the game that are barely interactive. That will please some and bother others, but it’s in the service of story and character so I’m ok with it.
