Should I Play The Walking Dead: Episode 1? – The Cursed Checkpoint #115

Ethan has been a bit outspoken against The Walking Dead episodes prior to their release, and Justin and Brandon couldn’t be happier with the series after the first episode. Can they convince Ethan and his ilk to stick with the series?

The Cursed Checkpoint is a topical video game podcast focused on discussions and interviews about a single video game, genre, news headline, or industry story. It features a rotating cast of up to 3 members of the Horrible Night writing staff and/or video game industry professionals.

The Walking Dead: Episode One - A New Day

Episode Background

Ethan has been burned a little too often by his expectations of the adventure games from Telltale and as a fan of The Walking Dead he has been worried about how the games would turn out. At the same time, Justin and Brandon briskly and happily played through Episode 1. In hopes that their enthusiasm is contagious, Ethan talks with the new converts to find out what got them so excited about their experience and if they will see through all of the episodes.

This checkpoint is a spoiler-free evaluation of the highs and lows of the first episode of The Walking Dead. It is intended for gamers who haven’t made up their mind about whether or not they will play through all of The Walking Dead episodes whether or not they have played the first episode or not.
