Activision Has its Own Walking Dead Game Now

#51 Posted by GERALTITUDE (3504 posts) -

Pff. Great.

Robert Kirkman, one in a long line of comics creators who don't care what people do with their ideas.

#52 Posted by Alex (2391 posts) -

@Stubee: Not really. Trust me when I say that in context of the series, it's actually nowhere near as big of a deal as you might think.

#53 Posted by BlazeHedgehog (1103 posts) -

I already have The Walking Dead game that I want. Depending on how bad Activision effs this up it might even sabotage Telltale's.

#54 Posted by scarace360 (4828 posts) -

Activision why? It wont make a billion dollars so why even try?

#55 Posted by Tidel (360 posts) -

Daryl Dixon is the best thing about the show.

So, you know.

There's that.

#56 Posted by Draxyle (1895 posts) -

This will be interesting. We get to see the direct difference between a labor of love and a labor of business.

#57 Posted by SomeJerk (3389 posts) -

Terminal Reality?
Star Wars Kinect was their last game.
Must have been some changes in staff since Ghost Busters.

#58 Posted by Zaxex (594 posts) -

Closes Prototype developer.

Announces Walking Dead FPS.

I anticipate some more studio closures from Activison in the near future.

#59 Posted by Scratch (628 posts) -

Take a look at the trailer/teaser that's up on the official site for the game. Yeah.

And from the makers of fine games such as Kinect Star Wars.

As someone who has seen the second series, it really isn't.

Also, what the hell? Watch the second season!

Everything is a spoiler for someone about something. Deal.

@Scratch: Don't forget Monster Truck Madness!

#63 Posted by 20183242 (41 posts) -

OK, stay with me here guys, but what if... we made it into some kind of first-person shooter? Crazy right? But I can just see the headlines now: "Activision Publishes First-Person Shooter"!

It'll be revolutionary, you'll see!

#64 Posted by mbr2 (571 posts) -

Oh what a FPS with zombies in it? Creative muscles are really being flexed here.

#65 Posted by billyhoush (1194 posts) -

I hope it's more like Skylanders than COD.

#66 Posted by davidwitten22 (1708 posts) -

Oh good, you play as Daryl, everyone's least favorite character. That was a smart move...

#67 Edited by Death_Burnout (3800 posts) -

I just want Stalker with zombies in a suburban/urban/rural environment. Maybe this will be it? (not counting on it)

#68 Posted by Irvandus (2881 posts) -

Highly doubt it will impress me more than Tell Tale's.

#69 Posted by probablytuna (3823 posts) -

I'll stick with Telltale's excellent game, thanks.

#70 Posted by spiceninja (3070 posts) -

Oh dear.

#71 Posted by Recall (103 posts) -

Fuck first person shooters. It's Walking Dead, even an RTS would be more appealing than another FPS.

#72 Posted by icytower38 (464 posts) -

I can't imagine this being all that good, I'm sure it'll sell well but not be that great of a game.

#73 Posted by radioactivez0r (866 posts) -

@davidwitten22: I know a lot of people who are pretty fond of him. Now, if it was starring T-Dog...

#74 Posted by Elyk247 (371 posts) -

@davidwitten22: Daryl is probably one of the coolest characters on the show. He is always happy to save the other survivors' butts.

#75 Posted by nasseh (83 posts) -

It would be awesome if this were a prettier, more fleshed out version of DayZ., but that's definitely not happening.

#76 Posted by Redbullet685 (6085 posts) -

I really do love TWD, even the show, but I'm not sure about this. What makes the Telltale game so good is that its centered around the characters and their interactions between each other. I'm afraid that this will just be a bad Left 4 Dead with Michael Rooker.

What? Daryl is the only good thing the TV show has going for it.

#78 Posted by KevinMerrill (32 posts) -

I've always loved the irony in someone hating someone else because of their hate, i.e. hating racists because they're racist, thus creating more hate.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not a proponent of racism, I just enjoy studying human psychology. It's interesting at the very least.

Lori is everyone's least favorite character. Daryl is pretty high up on the list for most people.

Do when this tanks terminal reality will becom a map pack farm no thanks

#81 Posted by Jonny_Anonymous (1175 posts) -

If Kirkman has OK'd this then I'll check it out, if not then this game means less than nothing to me.

#82 Posted by stryker1121 (1584 posts) -

@davidwitten22: Who did you want to play as, Dale? Most people like Daryl and he already has a weapon associated with him.

#83 Posted by J12088 (462 posts) -

Wont be a good game. Activision is going to cash in on the name and the name alone. Pass.

#84 Posted by Iodine (550 posts) -

Alright guys we need something besides call of duty to make oodles of cash.

"First Person Shooter"

Sounds used up

"With Zombies"

Familiar

"BASED ON THE WALKING DEAD TV SHOW"

HOT SEX LETS MAKE MILLIONS

#85 Posted by Quarters (1862 posts) -

It stars Daryl? Okay, I'm in. He's easily the best part of that entire show.

#86 Posted by spartica (76 posts) -

@fusrodah: Yes. Excellent sir.

#87 Posted by NegativeCero (3039 posts) -

No thanks, anything but a first person shooter. Also, aren't these bullet points the same as The Last of Us -- choosing when to fight, zombie-esque things around, management of material?

#88 Posted by two_socks (236 posts) -

If they do well with this, what are the chances they become another cog in the CoD machine afterwards?

#89 Posted by Nightfang (382 posts) -
#90 Posted by davidwitten22 (1708 posts) -

I stand corrected, apparently everyone loves Daryl!

#91 Edited by jasondesante (604 posts) -

JUST IN!!

New Activision game where you play a physicist going to work in a secret government base. You test out some secret element and everything goes wrong. You must then escape the White Mesa facility before the aliens kill you, or the mercenaries exterminate the whole base. Look forward to "No Life!" a new game from Activision.

#92 Posted by kagato (960 posts) -

We already have several decent zombie shooters, i really dont think we need another one. I love what Telltales doing with the adventure games, just seems to be a cynical cash in but id be happy to be proven wrong.

Everything is a spoiler for someone about something. Deal.

Not in my country.

#94 Posted by aspaceinvader (257 posts) -

oh wow loads of mouthy racist pubescent teen playing this thinking they are so cool and oh so original. Look another zombie "that's gay", xboxlive will be full of this shit. I bet anyone who plays this will get verbal messages just like jeff did on spec ops.

#95 Posted by Still_I_Cry (2494 posts) -

Yay another first person shooter! Just what I was waiting for!

#96 Posted by TwinkleTowez (73 posts) -

A Walking Dead game based on my favorite character from the show? I'm in. Although it's strange, because Daryl isn't in the comic, so at this point this game is barely able to use the Walking Dead name, but whatever, I'm interested!

#97 Posted by RadixNegative2 (526 posts) -

Don't want. I'm already sick of first person shooters, the last thing I want is a zombie fps. Also it's Activision, so even if I was interested there's a good chance the game will be shit.

Yeah, well, sorry, but STUFF continued to happen in season 2 of the show.

#99 Posted by WoodimusPrime (5 posts) -

How are they going to work an explosion per chapter into this game? The source material is fairly slow-paced.
