Great article about one of the most compelling story driven games in recent years. I'm a big fan of The Walking Dead and this series is -by a wide margin - the best use of the comic franchise. Really looking forward to Part 2 of this article and to tomorrow's Episode 3.

Jeff's dismissal of a long game is a bummer. I get it, but that doesn't leave much hope for any other coverage of similar types of games. P4G is kind of a know quantity in terms of a review though. I mean, Jeff and Vinny really like the original and this is just a remake for a portable system, so I'd say we know how they feel.
I also find it sad that people feel guilty for asking the staff about Persona coverage. Again, it is something I understand, but it is a shame nonetheless.
- Borderlands 2
- Assassin's Creed III
- Hitman Absolution
- Jet Set Radio
- X-COM: Enemy Unknown
These are the ones I'm most excited about, but the gap between Borderlands 2 and the rest is pretty huge. I'm curious about how Need for Speed: Most Wanted, Far Cry 3, and Halo 4 turn out. Halo, unlike the others, is a series I've always tried to get into but never can. The others, I seem to like much more easily.
If you look on the Xbox Live site there is a page for transferring your licensees to the new console. Right now it sounds like your saves are still registered to the old system's ID. A quick transfer should clear things up. Also, have your serial numbers handy.
People that play Diablo 3 for 30, 40 or 100 hours and then go on the internet complaining about how dull the game is just amaze me. Not saying that's you, but I've seen folks talk about sinking 100 hours into D3 and then shitting all over it.
Why does that surprise you? I don't think you can critique Diablo 3 with any sort of credibility until you at least hit Inferno. At least for me, it is not uncommon to finish a game you are not enjoying to wait and see if there is an upside, especially if you have been anticipating the game for awhile.
I disagree. I didn't need 30-100 hours of chewing on a crap sandwich to know I don't like crap sandwiches. That said, I see no reason to jump on people that invest a 100+ hours and still wish to complain. Some people may be more optimistic about the game's future or may not have anything else to play. Who knows what their motives are, but they are entitled to the opinions either way.
From what I can gather, it is a dungeon crawler action RPG. It seems to have some great customization though. You can build you party members in an editor mode and switch between characters on the fly. Looks like some classic(?) NIS characters such as Prinny, Leharl, and Etna make appearances as playable character as well. The graphics are simplistic, but quite stylized. I'm thinking about picking it up, but I'm on the fence atm with having just gotten into Sleeping Dogs last night.
I think you can trust that most sites give honest reviews. I just rarely agree with any of them on a consistant basis. Jeff scores all over the place anymore. Alex is mostly in line with my opinions, but he mostly reviews terrible games (maybe that taints that trend). My thoughts line up with Ryan's reviews more often than not. Phil Kollar is pretty good. But I find Jim Sterling to be insufferable. I don't recall the last time I made a purchase based off of someone else's opinion though. Quick Looks and other such videos help me to judge games for myself. It isn't an exact science, but I've gotten pretty good at knowing what to look for in games over the years.
