Game of Thrones The Game, Walking Dead The Game

Ahh the Good Old Days..... sigh!...

A time, when, long before the release of a console game, there would be a veritable gallery of screenshots to wade through, a plethora of trailers and gameplay videos to eat your popcorn to, a feast of Wallpapers to embelish our desktops, dogs barking on every street corner.... well okay maybe not every corner, but certainly a lot of dogs..... suffice it to say a console game drew major attention to iself, long, long before it's release date.

It should come as no surprise therefore that these two potential leviathans have snuck up on me, due for release, according to Eurogamer "April 2012"

Alf sound the fanfair!!!!!

The Walking Dead The Game

This one a download for Xbox Live, and Playstation Network, Telltale Games are planning to scare the living dandruff out of us this month, with the release of their episodic ( download additional episodes as they arrive) take on the Walking Dead franchise. 

An action adventure, based on  the best selling comic book, by Robert Kirkman, who has promised  that, unlike typical zombie games such as Left 4 Dead, the game will focus more on characterization and emotion than action  

We can but hope, neigh offer a sacrificial... erm! ..sacrifice, that the quality is maintained as the franchise crosses to a new medium.

The 13 minute Walking Dead Gameplay trailer on Eurogamer you shouldn't watch less your old enough.

Elderly: No, not unless you fancy having it surgically implanted

Came as quite the surprise to me it did, not the better for it in fact... Think I may need to sit down even, lucky I spotted it, seeing it on the shop shelf without prior knowledge, dread to think of my physiological response....
