I own the first four episodes of Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead and I’ll undoubtedly be dropping the cash to get the finale when it releases in early December. Now, it looks like I’ll also have to spend the $69.99 for the Ultimate Badass Zombie Slayer Edition (not the real name, even though it should be), which includes all five episodes and The Walking Dead Compendium One with cover art designed by Charlie Adlard — a collection of the first 48 issues of Robert Kirkman’s award-winning comic book series. If you’re not into the comics, there’s always the basic $29.99 retail version that bundles the five episodes together.
Having never read the comic book, but always wanted to, the collector’s edition sounds fantastic. Unfortunately, it’s a Gamestop pre-order exclusive, and it’s doubly sad that we’ll have to wait until December 4th for it to release. Thankfully, there are plenty games between now and then to keep us busy.
