It’s the final trailer for Telltale’s Walking Dead game, and… well, I don’t have much to say about it, but it looks really good. Really matches the art and tone of The Walking Dead comics, as far as my eye sees — i.e. it focuses more on the drama inherent in trying to survive when zombies walk the earth more than just trying to shoot them in the head. Not to say the latter is bad, of course, but we have dozens of games like that already — I’m looking forward to trying it this way. The first chapter was released yesterday on PSN and computers now, hopefully the Xbox Live version is coming soon…

He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
