    The "critically claimed" game, The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, has been receiving some controversial reviews. Well, not so controversial, just negative. However, things may change, since that game isn't coming to the Vita. The Telltale one is.

    The Telltale adaptation of The Walking Dead did receive high review scores as well as a multitude of awards. It has since been out on the PC, Xbox 360, Playstation 3, iOS, and now it'll be on the Vita.

    No date was specified, but it'll be coming sometime this year. The Walking Dead: Season Two (the Telltale game, again) is also gearing up for this year as well.

    Eh, already have it on Steam. Don't really think this is a good choice for the Vita anyways. It's more the kind of game I'd want to play on the big screen, speakers up with the lights off.

    I always get reprimanded by board Nazi's for doing it, too. The fact is that many people don't read forums other than the front page and USN. News is news and deserves repeating.


    As for the content...

    It's good to see some devs still trying to breathe some unlife back into the Vita. It needs all the help it can get.

    Also suicide is not preferred in a public place.

    It's not really scary or anything, I just kinda equate the Vita (and iOS port) as like taking a TV show on the road. Plus it'll be nice to use a touchscreen for point and clicking.

    I think it's a good fit but I won't really bother since I already played it on the PS3 and I don't think I can take another playthrough without inflicting bodily harm on myself.

    EDIT: Side note: If you wanted a joke for the thread, you could say "The game accurately describes the system!"

    I came into this expecting the one with Lee and all that.

    Guess I got my hopes up.

    Double Reverse Plot Twist - That's exactly the game we're talking about.

    Weird. What sorcery have you done to make me read the first page incorrectly, then make me re-read it in amazement as it turns out you're correct?

    Thank god! You nearly scared me for a second. Maybe now I'll get around to playing it.
