Zombies have always been a big part of my life. My first exposure to zombies came at a very young age when George Romero was filming Day of the Dead on Sanibel Island. Actors in full Savini makeup showed up at my elementary school to pick up their kids and as soon as I saw their beautiful disfigured faces, I was hooked.
This week, the gang goes to MegaCon, travels across the country, and plays more Titanfall. That, and a new Aassassin’s Creed, Sony’s Project Morpheus, and the latest updates on PAX East 2014. Mega-fun for everyone!
Pager codes, remember those? The guys take a look at South Park Stick of Truth, Telltale’s The Walking Dead S2E2, and Star Wars the Clone Wars lost missions on Netflix. We also look ahead to high-profile games’ release dates, and talk a bit about the NAPPP. Our NAQOTW this week asks what charcaters from film, TV, and games that you’ve most fallen love with. Monarch!
This week we welcome Melissa Hutchison to the podcast, voice of Clementine from Telltale Game’s acclaimed The Walking Dead: The Game. Still. Not. Bitten!
We joked around on the podcast a few weeks back that a licensed adventure game about zombies should have never worked, but it did. Last year Telltale Games delivered one of best games I had ever played... period. Season One…
I was incredibly excited to check out Telltale's Walking Dead panel at this year's Comic-Con because season two of the hit game is shambling our way this fall. Sadly, the folks at Telltale Games weren't willing to reveal all that…
Every year that I go to Comic-Con I do my best to check out some panels and events that aren’t massive studio funded spectacles. Here some of the panels happening next week that you should add to your list.
While not quite as massive as E3 or PAX, Comic-Con 2013 has an impressive roster of studios showing off their upcoming games and swag. The following is a list of studios, publishers, and/or game related businesses which will be on the Comic-Con floor doing their thing.
State of Decay is a 3rd person adventure game set in a post apocalyptic open world… with zombies. The goal of the game is not unlike this year’s indie gem Don’t Starve; build a base, collect supplies, and survive for as long as humanly possible. Perma-death heightens the tension as each and every zombie battle could quickly turn you into worm food. In terms of survival horror, State of Decay does something that other titles of the genre have been trying to accomplish for years, it manages to make the losses real, and the horror truly horrifying.
Gaming news from CES including Steam Box prototypes, Project Shiled, and Illumiroom. Ash tells us about Anarchy Reigns, and we have a healthy roundtable discussion about the Walking Dead. In our NAQOTW, you tell us what woefully overlooked franchise, character, or genre we need to see more of in the future. Let the gaming begin!
Using overly complicated computers with blinking lights and super-colliders that make the Higgs Boson seem tiny, NA complied a list of five amazing things that WILL happen in 2013. Over the years we’ve become very good at predicting trends in pop culture and gaming, so just remember that you heard it here first-ish. Hold onto your Tardis, here we go.
