NOW KITH! KIIIIIIIIIITH!
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.

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.

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.

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

@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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
