85w ago - Telltale Games Writer and Designer Jake Rodkin has announced today that The Walking Dead video game series will be lurching on PSN Tuesday with pre-purchase details below.
To quote: I'm Jake from Telltale Games and I'm clawing my way to bring you up to speed with our latest game series.

Bear in mind I'm only talking about this new generation, so if you've purchased a PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, or Wii, I want to know why. How did you arrive at the conclusion? None of these, even the relatively inexpensive Wii, is cheap enough to be considered an "impulse buy," so obviously, one would assume a great deal of thought went into your purchase decision.
I am well aware of the fanboys who plunked down their money without doing any research whatsoever, but if they bothered with responsible research, they wouldn't be embarrassingly biased, now would they? Anywho, I suppose I'll start; I own a PS3 and a 360, and here's why-
