Gaming companies come and go. But few downfalls come as much of a shock to fans as learning on the demise of Telltale Games. With big name titles under their belt, more titles announced for the next year, and hiring as recent as a month ago, fans and employees alike were caught off guard by the announcement that Telltale would be closing its doors. The downfall of Telltale is a cautionary warning to those who work in the gaming industry and a sign that the way the industry does business needs to change. What led to Telltale’s closing, what does it mean for its employees and future games? As fans and industry pros let it all sink in, here’s a list of 5 games you probably didn’t know Telltale created.
Even the staunchest of Walking Dead fans has to admit that, with the exception of the bloodbath in the season premiere, the first half of season seven was absolutely boring. Fans were lead to believe that Negan was a villain who would make his grand entrance on the show and do things that would make The Governor look like a boy scout. Sadly, this was far from the case and fans were left with a very milquetoast first half of the season. However, it was a necessary evil. We needed to see that Rick had been broken. We needed to see what it was like for Daryl to be Negan’s captive. We needed to see Maggie and Sasha take the lead and protect the people of Hilltop. With Rick and company back in the fighting spirit, hopefully the show will rebound from being such a stick in the mud.
“The Rock in the Road” had a lot of things it needed to get right in order to not lose any more viewers. For the most part, the episode succeeds where several others did not. As always SPOILERS FOR THE WALKING DEAD!!!!!! (more…)

After last week’s cliff hanger, fans were particularly wigged over this week’s episode. Does Daryl die? Will Negan use Lucille to end him? Will it be Carol? How about Glen? What is wrong with Maggie and the baby? So many questions. The anticipation for this season’s finale is unlike anything fans have witnessed or felt for quite some time. There are spoilers galore so please, if you don’t want the episode to be ruined, if you haven’t seen it yet or you are still dealing with the emotions from the episode, turn back now. Spoilers in 5…4…3…2…1.
After a very short introduction of blood, rosaries and voices, the group is taken on whirlwind ride, chasing their own. Tonight’s episode will start something that will change the group forever. While it is sure to become more emotional for fans in the season finale, tonight’s episode was plenty emotional on so many different levels. Spoilers below do continue at your own risk. Last change in 5…4…3…2…1.
The months have been passing away as winter arrived and now prepares to leave and we, the loyal following of The Walking Dead, have been waiting patiently for the show to return. The first half of season 6 was, IMHO, one of the best of the series thus far. Showrunner Scott Gimple has been able to capture the bleakness of a zombie apocalypse, giving time to both the atmosphere and character development while keeping all aspects compelling enough to have us tuning in each and every week. Now we enter the second half of season six with ‘No Way Out’. But does it live up to what has come before? Read on to learn more, but don’t expect the news to be good.
WARNING! Hella SPOILERS fer dayz, bra. Continue at your own risk. (more…)
The Walking Dead is moving into its sixth season this October and, if it stays as popular as it currently is, we may see it moving through six more seasons in the future. In addition, we have a spin-off (Fear the Walking Dead) and the long-running comic book series. But all good things must come to an end, right? As a matter of fact, Robert Kirkman already has an end planned out. Scroll on to hear what he had to say about it.
Questions have been left unanswered for almost a year now in regards to the Walking Dead‘s Daryl Dixon and his sexual orientation. This has been due to actor Norman Reedus remaining evasive and facetious about his characters sexuality whenever the topic comes up in interviews. Now, Robert Kirkman –creator of the comics and procuder of AMC‘ adaptation –has set the record straight on about the sexual orientation of Dixon. (more…)
“I hear dead people…”
Hello, Nerd Readers. Due to an unexpected error within the fabric of time and space, your normal Walking Dead reviewer can not be here today. Therefore, I am taking over. And given the sheer madness of tonight’s episode, I seem to have come at an apt time. For I can honestly say that ‘The Grove’ is one of the best, if not the best episode this series has put out thus far. (more…)
Those that have been keeping up with The Walking Dead know that the latest mid-season finale exited the character of The Governor – permanently (if you’re one of those that didn’t see the episode, then sorry, spoilers – deal with it). And while Rick and his gang certainly won’t miss the one-eyed bastard, the actor himself, David Morrissey, will be missed by cast and crew (and more than a few fans). To honor the time this excellent actor has put into the show, AMC has put together a little video containing some of our fondest memories of him along with interviews with Morrissey and the crew. Check it out below: (more…)
