55w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman has announced that The Walking Dead Episode 5: No Time Left hits PSN tomorrow alongside a fresh video trailer below.
To quote: It's all been leading up to this! Tomorrow, Telltale Games releases what they've dubbed the "season finale" of The Walking Dead, which I suppose bodes well for the possibility of future installments.
For me, Telltale's series represents the best of the adventure genre, with likeable characters, grim scenarios, and a player-guided narrative.
I've made no secret that The Walking Dead has quickly become one of my favorite gaming experiences of the year, and I'm dying to see how Lee Everett's final chapter plays out in this companion piece to Robert Kirkman's much-loved graphic novel series.
(Spoiler) Sad to say that Kenny won't be joining me on the final journey, though. What about you? Who are you taking with you?

To quote: Congratulations. You've made it. You've survived. This far.
If you're reading this blog, that means you've probably already played the first three installments of Telltale Games' episodic video game adaptation of Robert Kirkman's never-ending zombie epic The Walking Dead.
