Reminder: The Walking Dead: Dead Reckoning exists and is awesome
The Walking Dead is a cult phenomenon right now, and for good reason: it is a moving and personal account of what seems like a very realistic version of what would happen in the event of a zombie apocalypse, something that we may be accused of spending a bit too much time thinking about/planning for. Last week, AMC released The Walking Dead: Dead Reckoning for Android, and we just wanted to remind people of its existence, because it is worth a look. 

To call Dead Reckoning a game wouldn't be wholly accurate, it is more of an interactive comic book than a game. It focuses on story, more precisely, the story of Shane just before he went to visit Rick in the hospital that last time. It is set up in the style of a comic book with subtle animations and some choose-your-path options which can reward you or penalize you based on the decisions you make. 

It is fairly short, a play through could be as short as 5-10 minutes, but it is definitely worth it for fans of the TV show or original comic book. We're hoping that more of these get released sooner rather than later. We're hoping that getting the word out will help get more made because as yet, this app is still stuck in the 5k-10k download bracket in the Play Store. 

If you'd like to give Dead Reckoning a try, it's available for free in the Google Play Store.

I downloaded it to my Playbook and its ranked pretty good on the app store there, but that's not a big surprise since its a much smaller appstore. I havent tried it yet though, but I will tonight.

Yeah I decided to read the graphic novel after the end of season 2 lol. The writers did a great job in comparison.

Despite if you read the comics or not. The show is amazing, kudos for finally bringing a good zombie tv show that isnt stupid and mindless but realistic and deep.

Sunday evenings are very dull without "Walking Dead" right now. It was an event at my place- about 3 - 6 of our friends would come over and watch with us, or we would just text back and forth during it. "Talking Dead" was required watching as well. Haven't been this into a show since the first 3 seasons of "Lost". Our fav game? "Guess who gets eaten this week". I did real good at figuring out who was getting munched in season 1, but not so good in season 2. I am hoping to bounce back with a strong season 3. October seems so far away....

Everybody loves zombies. I know I do. Hell, my girlfriend is even a zombie. OK, OK... she's not really a zombie. I should probably get her back to the cemetery now though. "Necrophilia - crack open a cold one!"
