Walking Dead Season 2

Season 2 of The Walking Dead has started.I thought season 1 was good (if not as good as I hoped), but the first episode of S2 was Zombieliscious… Check it out (if you can)

I would also recommend the still ongoing comic that it is based on, but with a warning that even for the most jaded Zombiphile, it makes the T.V. series look like Twilight; that is some cold blooded, merciless shit…

I’m not sure if this developer interview with the makers of RAGE is the worst or best ‘reviewer’ interview I’ve ever read… but it IS certainly the most honest, and kind of highlights (perhaps unfairly) the assumed truths of the first person shooter genre.
