Walking Dead Episode 2 Stats Reveal Gamers Have Humanity (Mostly)
Telltale Games tracked what we all chose in this episode and compiled a list of data from it showing the decisions players made. Even though the stereotype is that gaming dehumanizes us all into violence ridden psychotic thugs, the data shows we’re actually… you know, human. Most of us decided to keep that humanity in most of the choices.
See for yourself, but be warned: spoilers abound!
The Walking Dead Episode Two: Starved For Help Release Dates Announced
Telltale Games revealed today that the second part of their The Walking Dead series will be available this week for all its platforms. The game drops on Xbox Live first on Wednesday, June 27th (or tomorrow, for those without calendars), followed quickly by the Playstation Network and PC/Mac release on Friday, June 29th.
Starved For Help picks up right where A New Day left off, so for those who downloaded the first episode and want to continue following Lee Everette’s story, downloading part two should be a no-brainer. And if you haven’t played the first episode and are on the fence about a purchase, you can check out our review of A New Day right here.

I’m sure most people are familiar with The Walking Dead franchise at this point, whether it be from the engrossing comic book series or the highly successful TV show. What makes both of these takes on The Walking Dead is that they offer a different take on the zombie genre by making the focus about human interaction and drama, as opposed to relying gore and thrills (which isn’t to say that either are lacking in that respect). It is with this mentality that Telltale Games decided to approach the first foray into video games for the franchise, and by respecting that mentality of its source material, Telltale Games not only does The Walking Dead franchise justice, but creates a truly refreshing installment in both the zombie sub-genre of gaming, as well as the The Walking Dead mythos as a whole, in this first part of a 5-piece DLC series.
The Walking Dead: Episode 1 Available Now
Telltale Games’ first episode in the planned five-piece of The Walking Dead games released yesterday for the PS3, PC, and Mac. An XB360 version of the game is planned for later this summer.
You control Lee Everett, a convicted murderer who is being transported to prison when his car runs into a zombie on the road, setting him free. You will follow him throughout his journey to redemption, meeting a stellar cast of characters along the way. Be sure to get it ASAP! You can also get a Season Pass DLC right now online or at retailers like Gamestop.
The Walking Dead Video Game Will Not Follow The Comics
A couple of days ago, we posted the above screenshot and stated that The Walking Dead video game will be based on the original comic. That doesn’t seem to be the case. However, game designer Jake Rodkin promises that it won’t be just another zombie game.
“The last shot of this game is probably not going to be a guy with two axes on top of a mile-high mountain of zombies." —Jake Rodkin assures that The Walking Dead video game won’t be like any other zombie game
The game won’t feature the main characters of the comic or the TV show, but Rodkin says that’s because they don’t want players to automatically assume what’s going to happen in the game for those who have read the comics/watched the TV show.
Telltale’s game will revolve around Lee, a prisoner, and Clementine, a young girl Lee comes across during the zombie apocalypse.
“The Walking Dead is not really a game about people who save the world. It’s more about a story of trying to survive as people inside of this huge and horrible situation." —Jake Rodkin
