Now, as you may or may not have gathered, Im a huge fan of the comic “The Walking Dead” and have been a long time reader of the series. I was excited when I heard they were making a tv series about it, and once that finally got its berrings, Im a fan of it as well. The success of The Walking Dead propelled AMC even further with its desired age bracket, totaling viewers in the realm of 9 million, plus the second season finale was really bad ass. At this same time, TellTale games was apparently trying to get the rights to make a dramatic, atmospheric game that involved the world of the walking dead, only with different characters. I instantly thought “Oh yes! Take my money!”, so the day it came out, I paid for the season pass on PSN and got a free theme as well. I enjoyed the first episode, going into it blindly and all, not really knowing what to expect and reacting to choices you dont realize will have conciquince, but here we are over 2 months later and there is still no episode 2, only a slight indication that it will be released by the end of “June”. With about a week left of June, lets hope they release it sooner than later because I have stalked the boards and Telltale’s facebooks, there are a lot of angry season pass holders that feel like TTG dropped the ball, and now wish to have nothing to do with them. Come on, TT, you cant go bragging you sold a million copies of the game and then not care about your customers… thats how studios get a bad rep.
Being a Dish Network subscriber is no walk in the park these days either, with AMC and DN in a heated argument over who deserves what to do what with, probably money or some sort, and I hear it all stems from a recent legal win in AMC’s favor against DN, but as of July 1st, Dish Network has stated that it will not be renewing AMC’s contract and therefore that channel will go black. They have already moved it all the way back in the 9000 range, but that too will go black, and we (I) will miss out on some of my favorite shows, including but not limited to breaking bad, the walking dead, hell on wheels, and the Killing. Yes, I liked the killing… the family aspect really gave it more depth than your average law and order procedural show, and the actor who plays Holder actually got the part of RoboCop for his performance in it!
Someone has it out for me or The Walking Dead, because it’s getting a little hard to be a fan these days! It’s sort of disgusting that when companies get into disputes, it’s us who pay them that are MADE TO SUFFER (get it… hehe… snort snort… its an arc in TWD)
Dont miss out on the groundbreaking 100th issue of The Walking Dead, coming mid july!!
SPOILER!!! DON’T LOOK AT THE PICTURE IF YOU DON’T READ THE COMICS
