[COLOR=#cfe2f3]that's right chilluns, the new walking dead has hit the interwebs, and it's like a roller coaster of awesome. outside of story, not much has changed from the third chapter, but i still feel that it deserves some space on the blogosphere.[/COLOR]

[COLOR=#cfe2f3]wow, that's all i can really say. the story in this chapter is def one of the best yet, i don't know how, but somehow the writers keep managing to out do themselves. it's really amazing, when you get to the end, everything you've done to that comes to a head and completely alters the makeup of the game you'll be playing in the final chapter. maybe i'm just a walking dead nut, but i absolutely love the writing here. being a fan of the show, i love anything that gives back story and axpands the universe of the story, one of the reason i love dead space.[/COLOR]

[LEFT][COLOR=#cfe2f3]this chapter doesn't really wrap up any story threads, instead it inserts a new scenario that introduces the character to the depths of human depravity, and the depths to which men will sink to ensure their own posterity. remember episode two? something like that on a grander scale. i won't say anymore, but while the event's in this chapter dealing with that subject aren't as outright shocking, you get the sense of it's scale as you progress through the game. every new detail uncovered stacks on the detail before. you also build your relationships to lead into the season finale. this episode doesn't progress the main story line by much, nor does it deal with the man on the radio, but it does build to the finale. all of the interactions work to establish the frame of mind that leads to the events of the final 15 minutes.

[/COLOR][COLOR=#cfe2f3]the gameplay is pretty much the same in this one as in the third chapter, certain aspects were expanded upon and worked in better, like the first person shooting sections, no movement, but you do aim down the sights and put down a small, but vicious, horde. this chapter more than any other requires quick reflexes and tight control. i had to go back over a couple of sections simply because i was asleep at the wheel.

[COLOR=#cfe2f3]ooo, who's that? play the game and find out. the only thing that really dissapointed me was that they didn't have a "next time" reel at the end. of course, there has been a patch release since, so it may have changed, but i was kind of sad about that. great story, fun engaging gameplay, this chapter gets a 10/10.
