Zombie Deals Shuffle Onto PSN Horror Sale

Let's face it, with Halloween just around the corner, Sony would be mad not to tap into our inexplicable love for zombies on the PlayStation Network. Which is exactly what they've done, thanks to a slew of new savings shambling onto the existing horror sale. It's not actually the best sale we've ever seen, with many titles cheaper elsewhere (or not worth buying in the first place - avoid The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct like the plague it is), but Resident Evil fans will be well away.

We've got all the tasty savings after the braaaaaiiiiins. The break. Sorry, what did I say?

War Z Producer Blames Problems On Game's Success, Was "Too Focused On How Great We Are"

It would seem that the season of goodwill has touched Hammerpoint , with Sergey Titov, the executive producer for The War Z,  sending out a long open letter to the controversial MMO's playerbase, seeking to apologise for some of the game's issues, not to mention the behavioural practices of the studio itself.

Titov reckons that the overwhelming success of the game had something to do with the bad reputation the game garnered, tracing his "arrogance" back to early stats, and admitting that he was so focused on hitting the big-time, that he failed to listen to the community.

Titov also addresses his team's rather rather poor record of communication and community management, saying that Hammerpoint will be hiring additional staff to respond to future issues.

UPDATE: War Z Controversy Escalates As Customers Ask For Refunds

Outrage Over “Foundation” Release Features & Promises

UPDATE: It appears Valve have been listening to the outcry from its community, as The War Z has been temporarily pulled from sale. In an statement issued to Polygon, vice president of marketing Doug Lombardi apologised for the situation, stating "mistakes can be made," and that Valve have "temporarily removed the sale offering of the title until we have time to work with the developer and have confidence in a new build," although anyone who has already bought the game can still play it via Steam if they wish to.

ORIGINAL STORY: Nothing like a bit of controversy to end the year with, eh? The War Z, the persistent online zombie survival FPS that emerged shortly after the initial success of DayZ, is currently facing a wave of consumer wrath after its launch on Steam earlier this week. A misleading product description prompted calls from gamers of being falsely sold an incomplete game and, in some cases, out-right fraud and with the past few days seeing responses from all sides of the issue, the latest chapter in the saga has seen the product description being changed to better reflect the current state of the game and a rather bizarre interview with the Executive Producer.

The Walking Dead: Episode 5 - No Time Left Review | Oh My Darling Clementine

Platforms: PC | PS3 | Xbox 360 (reviewed)

Developers: Telltale Games

Publishers: Telltale Games

It's a difficult thing, ending a story. There are so many threads to be tied, so many functions that an ending needs to fulfil in order to be considered satisfying, particularly in a narrative as interactive and player-driven as we have seen and sculpted in Telltale's The Walking Dead. Those choices have to be reflected upon, and decisively brought to a final conclusion that gives every character their due and leaves us, paradoxically perhaps, happy when the curtain finally falls and yet eager for an already announced second season.

Thankfully, Telltale have delivered a fitting, if fleeting, finale.

The Walking Dead: Episode 5 - No Time Left Review | Oh My Darling Clementine

So much has happened across the course of the last four episodes, that it's unsurprising writer and director Sean Vanaman's conclusion to the series is a little understated overall. There are no real dramatic twists, and thankfully Telltale have resisted the urge to try and ramp up the horror to maximum for episode five. Instead we get a zombie-infested chapter that is perfectly happy to slow things down and make the player reflect on the decisions they've made in order to get to this point.

Telltale Acknowledge Walking Dead Save Game Bugs, "Taking It Seriously"

Well it's about time.

A number of folks, this writer included, have been somewhat irked that the save game functionality in The Walking Dead has proven itself to be temperamental at best, and horribly broken at its worst. And now, it seems, enough people have complained for Telltale to take note.

The Walking Dead: Episode 4 Review | Sympathy For The Devil

Platforms: PC | PS3 | Xbox 360 (reviewed)

Developers: Telltale Games

Publishers: Telltale Games

I never thought I'd feel sorry for a zombie.

There are times in this series, of course, where bad things happen to good people, and tragedy befalls the innocent and unaware, but even in those moments, you feel more for those left behind. But last night, playing through Episode Four of Telltale's masterclass in interactive storytelling I felt incredibly sorry for the creature whose head lay beneath Lee's boot, so much so that after it finally perished I had to take ten minutes or so away from the screen.

A game has never produced that kind of effect in me before. There have been plenty of moments of shock and awe, the excitement and the exhilaration that action games can bring, the moving nature of often bittersweet epic romances and relationships that are the domain of many an RPG, the satisfaction that comes with meticulous stealth, the personal narratives offered up by player choice. In this case, the choice is simple: do you do the dirty work yourself to spare the duty from others, or do you wash your hands and walk away?

The Walking Dead: Episode 4 Review | Sympathy For The Devil

But Telltale have a knack for making us care almost immediately. Whether through the stylised aesthetics that render facial expressions superbly, or through the superb voice acting on display, and indeed through the writing itself - Sean Vanaman's scripts in particular delivering some light and delicate touches that provide a little warmth in amongst the horror, and maybe even provoke a smile or two.

Call of Duty: Black Ops II (pre-order) | £39.89 | Toys R Us | PS3 / 360

Call of Duty titles are notoriously expensive at launch and take forever to devalue so you may as well get on board early so you can stand a chance of competing online. A new near future setting for the campaign should shakes things up a bit for the series, as will some improvements to loadout freedom online. Seeing as it's Treyarch, we're more excited about the extra zombie modes to be honest. The 360 version will be getting timed exclusives for the inevitable DLC packages if you're multiformat.

Dead Island | £9.97 | PC World (collect in store) | Xbox 360

While it might not have lived up to the hype of that incredible trailer, Dead Island is still a lot of fun for anyone that likes to hit zombies with a cricket bat. Melee weapons are the main focus and there are even survival horror elements, as you need to repair weapons to make sure they're in top condition to avoid fending off the undead with your bare hands aka: zombie treats. Better yet, use somebody else's hands as the game is best enjoyed in the four-player co-op mode.

Black Ops II Zombies Mode Revealed: Road TripZ

"A Big, Giant, Expansive World"

Treyarch have officially blown the lid off Black Ops II's Zombies mode... which has been expanded into practically a full game in its own right. Not only will the traditional wave-based survival mode make a welcome return, but the new TranZit gametype promises to take us on a road trip through an expansive world where we choose the destination. If that wasn't enough, the appropriately-named Grief Mode will adds a competitive twist to the proceedings for up to eight players.

The Walking Dead Ep. 3 Review | Should I Stay Or Should I Go Now?

Platforms: PC | PS3 | Xbox 360 (reviewed)

Developers: Telltale Games

Every time I finish another chapter of Telltale's emphatic masterclass in choice-and-consequence adventure gaming I have to immediately replay it, possibly even from the very beginning of  the saga. Three chapters in, that's starting to take a little longer than before.

The reasons for that of course, come in the form of the weighty moral decisions one has to make along the way. The  whole point of The Walking Dead as a concept has been to explore the crippling humanity that comes with staring into the face of the zombie apocalypse, and the lengths that people will go to in order to survive. The question that is constantly posed when it comes to Telltale's series is just how long can you - as central protagonist Lee -keep your humanity as it disappears so very rapidly from  the world around you.

The Walking Dead Ep. 3 Review | Should I Stay Or Should I Go Now?

The echo of the finale to the second chapter - one of the endings sees Lee and his band of survivors turn their back on a man essentially howling, begging for death - forms the prelude to the darkest chapter so far. Deep distrust and abject denial are at the heart of this particular slice of zombie-evading action. Indeed, the Walkers feature somewhat less than perhaps they have in the first two chapters (although the final few scenes more than make up for this), but desperately striving to stop your little group ripping themselves apart makes for compelling stuff.
