The Walking Dead: 400 Days is a one off ‘special episode’ set across five different stories with a neat cross-over at the conclusion. As such, Telltale Games’ fine first season of The Walking Dead has next to nothing to do with this – although there are a couple of references arching back to the original episodes for the more perceptive of you out there. In all honesty I wa...[Read More]

The Call of Juarez games aren’t known for being exactly mind-blowing. In fact, Call of Juarez: The Cartel was plain bad. With that in mind, I have to say this one looks like fun. ‘Dumb fun’, but fun nonetheless. Call of Juarez: Gunslinger is set for release on may 22nd and it looks like an old-fashioned all-action shooter. Explosions, heads exploding, environmental kills, more ex...[Read More]
