The Walking Dead, PlayStation All-Stars: Shacknews Daily: November 20, 2012

Join Ryan Calavano on this episode of Shacknews Daily. Today's Stories: - Borderlands 2 Campaign of Carnage piles on the boss fights - The Walking Dead: Season One review: breathing new life - PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale review: a small tribute


The original Borderlands was lauded for its diverse and well-designed downloadable content packs. Campaign of Carnage for Borderlands 2 isn't great, but a subversive twist wrapped in some over-the-top boss fights should be enough to satisfy.

Then, The Walking Dead is easily one of the most focused and cohesive adventure game we've played to date. More importantly, it's a story that invites discussion and dissection, and a credit to the narrative power of video games. Those interested in these electronic diversions as a storytelling medium simply need to experience it. The final episode is out today.

Finally, we've said it before, and we'll say it again: PlayStation All-Stars is not Smash Bros. Battle Royale fills a niche in PlayStation's lineup, and it does a good enough job at offering a party-oriented fighting experience. There's a long list of things that should be improved for a sequel, but it's certainly fun enough for a first outing in the franchise.

You can also watch this episode on YouTube. And, don't forget to subscribe to get the latest episodes as they go up. We'll be back after the Thanksgiving break on November 26th.
