Humanity is finished. Our robotic creations are all that remains, and our legacy is being gradually phased out. Have we left them with enough knowledge to survive, or will they end up just like us?
Telltale’s The Walking Dead’s first season is winding down. One episode remains in the series that has left me emotionally drained after each entry. Episode Four: Around Every Corner continues the trend.
The title to this post comes from a Steam conversation I was having with a friend right after a major event in this episode of The Walking Dead. This series has done wonders in draining me emotionally, and this episode arguably hits the hardest yet. It’s something I’m not used to feeling in games, but I’m incredibly impressed how they continue to make me feel this way each month.
Telltale’s second episode of ‘The Walking Dead’ begins by immediately reminding you that the world you’re reentering is one of dread and difficult choices. Beginning three months after the conclusion of A New Day, the established camp has fallen on hard times. Tension has arisen between the survivors, safety is still a concern, and more importantly the group is running dangerously low on food. Lives hang in the balance, and the choices are yours to deal with (for better or worse).
