Yeah, I agree. It's a suspicious tactic. I'm hoping it has some purpose though.

I kind of understand why Activision might not want to show it's hand.

I think the video game media has actually gotten out of control lately. There is a ton of websites out there that cover and review games and they're becoming more and more obnoxious. There are ridiculous articles published about nonsense like how a guitar chord overhead in a game trailer can have negative connotations because it sounds too "western". Likewise, reviewers justify unwarranted low scores because some hipster thought a game, "lacks a je ne sais quoi?" There's no responsibility to be objective and no accountability in failing to do so. And it's a shame because it can really sway sales.

EDIT: Furthermore, it's hardly debatable anymore that some of these websites are influenced by ad sales. Walking Dead, as far as I know, hasn't bought any.

Nice featurette too.

I really get the impression Activision is purposely shunning the mainstream gaming media. Maybe I'm wrong, but all of these bits are cropping up from sites I've never heard of. It's like they're telling IGN and Gamespot to go fuck themselves.

I have this pre-ordered but am a little leery that Amazon dropped the price to $37.49. Usually that does not signal a great game is on the way.

Like Mr. Rooker says, "Merle and Daryl is a game. What can be better than that?"

Iím fine with itÖat least if the game sucks, itís good to know I didnít put down 60 bucks for it **cough** **Colonial Marines** cough**Resident Evil 6**cough**. And if its halfway decent, thatís just a plus that it wasnít $60.

Thanks man, I think I'm getting this but my expectations are set pretty low. There seem to be a lot of people out there prejudging this one so I think I'm getting this partially out of protest against them
