Ok, there’s pretty much nothing coming out this week. I mean, sure, there are some PC releases, a new map pack for Halo 4, some Assassins Creed 3 DLC and a terrible James Bond game for the Wii U, but the real reason to head out the store this week is the retail release of Telltale’s The Walking Dead. All five episodes are collected and sure, at thirty bucks it’s five bucks more than buying the episodes individually online, but hey, at least you get a swanky case for your game and, uh, I don’t know, the satisfaction of propping up brick and mortar establishments everywhere? Whatever. Go play it. It’s awesome and if you’re an achievement/trophy junkie, you can get all of the awards just by playing the game.
