The Walking Dead is at a steal on Xbox Live today.
Starting two days ago, Telltales games, The Walking Dead Episode 1, was free to download on Xbox Live. The deal is still continuing, but to sweeten the deal, today only, the whole game could be bought for less than a Big Mac meal (and better for you). Episodes 2-5 can be nabbed at 200 Microsoft fun points, calculating each game to around $2.25 give or take a penny. I had never played these games up until a few days ago and I am hooked. I have always appreciated adventure games like Monkey Island, Kings Quest, and my personal favorite Space Quest (Roger Wilco rules!). Adventure games are perfect for sitting back with a good cup of tea, and enjoying the experience. The Walking Dead does have some gut wrenching decisions and I really enjoyed the conversation system and how some of the characters pick up on your choices. So again for today only, pick up the entire The Walking Dead a game by Telltale games, for 800 Microsoft points. For once Microsoft has something cheaper than Steam and that doesn’t happen very often if ever. The game regularly retails for $24.99 or $29.99 on disc.
