NOW KITH! KIIIIIIIIIITH!

Telltale Games has recently been hinting that "Around Every Corner", the fourth episode in the developer's critically beloved adaptation of Robert Kirkman's Walking Dead comic series, would be dropping "soon." Now we know when "soon" is, and yeah, it's real soon.

Like, tomorrow soon. PlayStation Network players will be able to download the latest episode--penned by Giant Bomb pal and confidant Gary Whitta--following tomorrow's PSN update. Xbox Live and PC players will get their hands on the episode Wednesday.

The only caveat to those dates involves European PlayStation 3 owners, who will not be getting the episode with tomorrow's update. According to Telltale, the episode is in submission with SCEE, and just awaiting a final go-ahead for release.

I realize there are several other key contenders I still need to play, but as of right now, the first season of The Walking Dead has been jockeying for position toward the top of my Game of the Year list. I'll have more to write on the season once it wraps up with episode five, but for those looking for more immediate dissection, be sure to check out Patrick's "Faces of Death" series with the minds behind the game, where they discuss the various choices the players find themselves wrestling with throughout the season. They're linked below for maximum convenience.

Man, this makes me wish I had started playing on PSN. A day is such a long wait! Glad it's here this early, though.

#15 Posted by FrenchFriedFool (169 posts) -

Fuck yes! Time to get hellof depressed all over again!

'NOW KITH! KIIIIIIIIIITH!' - Sorry, I don't get it. English is not my first language, btw. Can someone clarify, please?

#17 Posted by AndrewB (7613 posts) -

Oh man, I was just thinking about this earlier. I figured it would hit at the last second at the end of October. PUMPED!

#18 Posted by MildMolasses (3221 posts) -

It's supposed to be kiss, but as said by someone with no lips, such as a zombie

#19 Posted by mrfluke (5153 posts) -

cant wait to see what gary whitta does to these characters.

#20 Posted by vonFlampanker (327 posts) -

I'd be happier to hear this if my save file on Steam hadn't been eaten by a bug. Guess I'll be playing through this one post-Halloween when all 5 episodes are out.

Here's hoping for some sort of save-builder so I can plug in my choices rather than play through the first two episodes again.

#21 Posted by 2HeadedNinja (1617 posts) -

Awesome, looking forward to it :) ... Whitta better leaves Clem alone!

We might as well get used to it. It's the third time now after all and it's most likely going to continue for the final episode.

XCOM, Dishonored, and now THIS?!?! What the HELL, videogames?!?! I NEED MONEY FOR FOOD AND TIME TO EAT IT IN!!

It's a lisp of "Now KISS! KIIIIIIIIIIISS!!!" because half of the zombie's face is missing.

#25 Edited by GunnBjorn (2911 posts) -

@2HeadedNinja: If you move forward in the Episode screen menu to Ep. 5, you'll see that Clementine is depicted in there. She should be fine in Ep. 4.

#26 Posted by Nitrium (21 posts) -

I'd love to play it if I haven't lost my savegames after upgrading to WIndows 8 from 7 - sucks that Telltale hasn't fixed that problem yet.

#27 Posted by Bobby_The_Great (1004 posts) -

Dishonored, X-Com and Walking Dead: Episode 4? Mmm, mmm this week is awesome.  Damn it feels good to be a gangsta. 

#28 Posted by GunnBjorn (2911 posts) -

@2HeadedNinja: Unless, of course, it's part of a dream sequence...

#29 Posted by cosi83 (397 posts) -

Great! Now where is Walking Dead ep 3 on Ipad??

#30 Posted by dyreschlock (6 posts) -

I can't wait :D

#31 Posted by EveretteScott (1488 posts) -

Too bad i can't play all but episode 1 as my save file crapped after episode 3 was released AND the game broke so episode 2 stalls and doesn't load. Yeah!

#32 Posted by MjHealy (1851 posts) -

Fuck! I can't use Xbox Live at the moment so I might have to switch to PS3 for this one

#33 Posted by Indiana_Jenkins (390 posts) -

Is the Steam version going to be super late again?

#34 Posted by Animasta (14691 posts) -

#35 Posted by MormonWarrior (2592 posts) -

Awesome. That was a much shorter wait than I anticipated. Can't wait to see what Gary Whitta's been cooking up.

#36 Posted by VikG (136 posts) -

Looking forward to this episode!

Just finished a mad run through the first three on my new laptop. This is good news for my entertainment life, bad news for my academic and social lives though.

This and XCOM in the same week? What an embarrassment of riches.

#42 Posted by Milkman (16789 posts) -

GOD YES

#43 Posted by Tesla (1923 posts) -

Shit son! I'm starting to wish I had taken a day off work this week with all these games.

#44 Posted by megalowho (969 posts) -

Best gaming week of the year confirmed!

#45 Posted by probablytuna (3660 posts) -

God damn, I don't know if I can handle it. The last episode was by far the most emotionally-draining experience yet. Will situations get any better? I'm thinking no.

#46 Posted by Kyreo (4600 posts) -

Wow, I was expecting to wait another month or so.

#47 Posted by andrewf87462 (556 posts) -

Wow, quick turn around for this episode, can't wait to play it. Just like Alex, this is one of my favourite games of the year.

#48 Posted by Shinmaru007 (331 posts) -

Was expecting a release closer to Halloween. Glad to see that's not the case! Only wish I had tomorrow off from work. :(

#49 Posted by JamesJeux007 (472 posts) -

I'm so excited... And I just can't hide it !

I'm about to lose control and I think I like it !

#50 Posted by Coafi (1488 posts) -

Yes! Since I don't have enough money for the games that are coming out on Tuesday, I can count on the Walking Dead to be my game of the week. This is great news, I thought this was coming out on the last week of October so glad to be proved wrong.
