[Contest] Comment To Win A Season Pass For Telltale’s ‘The Walking Dead’

WalkingDead

UPDATE: This contest is now closed. Big thanks to everyone who participated!

The first season of Telltale Games’ consistently amazing The Walking Dead ended with a bang last week, bringing an emotionally charged end to one of the most engaging video games I’ve played this year. That’s not it for the series, as Telltale’s confirmed they have plans for a season two and the retail bundle will be out on Dec 4th. If you haven’t had the chance to play The Walking Dead yet or are too impatient to wait for it to come to retail, boy, do I have a deal for you. The lovely folks at Telltale were generous enough to give me a few Steam season passes for The Walking Dead, and instead of keeping them all for myself, I’m going to give them all to you. Details after the break.

All I want you to do is post your ideal apocalypse buddy in the comments and I’ll choose three winners who will receive a season pass (this includes all five episodes) to download on Steam. Would you rather go it alone, with a friend, a family member, a boyfriend, a girlfriend, that strange homeless man who waves at you as you pass him every morning? Oh, and choosing me won’t guarantee a win, though when the dead do inevitably rise, you should totally stick with me. I’ll take care of you.

The deadline to comment is December 2nd. Now get to work, dear reader, and make me proud.

Feel free to ever-so-gently toss Adam an email, or follow him on Twitter and Bloody Disgusting

    Billy Connollys zombie character from FIDO! Not only can we have the comic musings of a dead Billy Connolly to choose from (God I hope so…), but when the tough situations arise, all I have to do is dig into his gut, rip out an intestine and drape it around me and VOILA! Instant Fido-flague!!!! No zombies will be able to detect me and I’ll be free to walk the zombie world with my best bud Fido!

    Also, he can do the gardening and shit…

    • Adam Dodd

      Can we be best friends?

      • weresmurf

        Sorry Adam… you said I had to choose a best friend and choosing you wouldn’t guarantee a win. It’s FIDO. Though he may get hungry… so feel free to come around sometime after the inevitable apocalypse.

  • TheWalkingFlat

    A Crystal Meth Junkie with a bit of Brain left…He wont change if he get bitten by Zombies. So he just get some Money for keep on saving my ass…
    :)

  • MindVortex

    Ideal apocalypse buddy? Easy. Dennis Hopper from Land of the Dead. Forget fighting hordes of undead, struggling for survival alongside the Johnny Lunchpails of the world. We’d live it up in his highrise penthouse in Fiddler’s Green drinking fine scotch and brandy.

  • Ashsmart22

    Although I’d probably be a very depressed and stressed out man during this time. I’d have to make Bruce Campbell my buddy during these tough times. Not only is he very funny but would be able to deal justice at the highest level. Please and thank you for contest prize.

    I’d have to go with Robert Neville from I Am Legend. He had a good thing going for him. Until he threw that grenade….WHICH HE TOTALLY COULD HAVE DONE WHILE CLOSING HIMSELF IN THE HATCH.

  • wuzzuli

    I would pick Tyler Durden from Fight Club. Mainly because he would happily fight any zombie with his FISTS allowing me to use my own guns and ammo, and if I were infected, he’d have no real problem with fighting me till I died a horrible mess on the floor :P

  • dlevesqu

    Ummm… I already have a left hand and a right hand. Who else would I need? I bet Dutch from Predator would be handy in the clutch (pun intended).

  • chris99x

    I would bring Lindsey Lohan. Even zombies wouldn’t touch her (remember when she had to do community service at a morgue?). There’s no way science could ever offer better zombie repellent.

  • Gunpowder-Cash

    I’m gonna surprise you here, Adam. I’m going to choose someone from the Walking Dead. 1) He’s in the lore of the show and 2) He’s one of the few good things about the show.

    I’m gonna choose Daryl. He could teach me a lot about livin’ off the land. In that scenario, I’ll need someone that can not only cover me in a fight, but also know how to get by.

    Bam… Your mind is blown.

  • Drock-87

    Can we choose fictional characters? If so I’m taking Leon from the Resident Evil franchise, that guy has been through it all! If not I would take Chuck Norris, because well that one needs no explanation.

  • Jessicker

    Chuck Norris!

  • http://www.facebook.com/Tidalwolf Grayson Negron

    Ideal apocalypse buddy? John McClane from the Die Hard series. With him, we will tear the zombie community a BLACK HOLE.

  • SarcasticViking

    Ted Bundy for sure. Those Zombies are f*cked…

  • Discordia

    I’d take The Doctor. That man has a solution to everything and if shit gets hairy we can just zip off in the T.A.R.D.I.S.

  • Krea

    I still have to say Shaun, from Shaun of the Dead. He’s survived it once, and even at world’s end he’ll make it through. Plus, Vinyl Records and Cornetto go great to kill zombies.

    • weresmurf

      Plus he knows Big Al… and Big Al knows everything… including that Dogs can’t look up!

  • zombiegoats

    Oh man! How does one choose the perfect zombie apocalypse partner? Physical abilities? Sexiness? How much you can stand being around them?

    I’m actually gonna have to go with my best friend* on this one. Kinda lame? Maybe. Should the zombie sh!t hit the fan, he would never hesitate and would always have my back.

    *Runner up would probably be Ripley from Alien franchise. That woman kicks some serious ass, never gives up and doesn’t whine like a little bitch.

  • jecandlmh

    I would have to pick my dog Solomon. He wouldn’t be much help with combat but I know his loyalty would always be there.

  • Angel2480

    I’ll just go with the guy that “wrote the book” and have Max Brooks as my buddy.

  • BornVillian

    I’m going to choose an Observer from Fringe. Something tells me their superhuman strength and ability to travel trough space and time will come in handy. They can see all possible outcomes and we’d always be able to choose the one that allows us to survive. And they are emotionless which could come in handy in many situations. They would never panic, they would never get on my nerves, they would never hesitate or crack under pressure. Also their futuristic weapons and technologies would come in great handy. Who wouldn’t want to blast zombies with plasma or sound based weapons. Shoot with all their knowledge they could probably find the one thing to stop the apocalypse, a cure……..well maybe even Dr Manhattan is all this in more.

  • tw1zt1done

    I would choose my roommate and long time friend Gary. Between the knowledge of both of us with us being handy men and him being a Master Mechanic, we can operate and fix anything. Being a killer is a great skill but anyone can become a killer in a desperate situation but not having any mechanical or trade skills won’t get you far in a situation such as this.

  • http://thefilmpolice.blogspot.com/ Armand DC

    Kristen Stewart. I’ll restart humanity by making expressionless babies! That’s even greater havoc than flesh-eating walkers, right?

  • http://www.facebook.com/buffyangel808 Ethan Steers

    Nicki Minaj. Bitch is crazy.

  • SelfishMan912

    i’d choose godzilla. zombies ain’t shit against godzilla. we’d be bffs.

  • http://www.facebook.com/nicholas.padilla.12 Nicholas Padilla

    My Post-apocolypse Zombie Buddy would be a Han Solo/Michonne like character, a partner to bring bloodshed to a zombie’s head while one is either reloading a shotgun or resting from beheading a Resident Evil 4-like zombie, a buddy to watch on foot of a horde behind my back while I search for food in a dark, outlandish area of broken car piled with rotten bodies of those who once almost escaped The Plague as it began, I would care for the buddy as a if he or she were my brother or sister, The Infected would fear us as If we were the hand of God shifting a wave of Vengence against the Unholy, but on the other hand I would choose the Fatal but caring Michonne from The Walking Dead TV Show and Comic Book series from 2003 to present, she is storng and willing, she makes Kill Bill’s Beatrix Kiddo look like a Scandinavian whore with a Kantana, her tragic backstory of her losing her brother and his friend from The Zombie Apocalypse of Walkers, but she keeps them close by chaining them and slashing their jaws and arms to prevent any bites, she survived The Horrors of The Governor, A “Jim Jones type of leader” and mayor of a dystopia: Woodbury, she helped Rick Grimes and His survival Family and is willing to kill to live in safety, that is who I would want to be a Zombie Apocolypse Partner, Sincerly Nicholas Tyler Padilla Aka The Eviler Chambalan ( It’s Spanish for a Badass Dude)

  • Jonathan9311

    I can’t believe nobody has chosen George A. Romero. Since he brought zombies mainstream and created the basis for the rules they follow in most contemporary renditions of their attack, he would automatically have the source code for that reality, and so if we get in a tight spot, he could just change the rules and get us out. Jeez, people. Common sense.

  • tatudevushka

    In the event of a zombie apocalypse, I’d definitely have to go with the doctor. I mean, we could just travel to another planet or time in the t.a.r.d.i.s. ;D
    Problem solved.

  • ronniedobbs

    Bernie. From “Weekend at Bernie’s”.

  • Joey_Redballs

    Ideal fictional companion: Michonne
    Ideal real life companion: My wife. Til death do us part.

  • Kyle Fisher

    Hugo Stiglitz from Nightmare City or just Hugo Stiglitz in general. The man just oozes pure badassary. When the worst gets worse I know that Hugo will be behind me kicking the ass of all those shirt ripping zombies. Anyone who would climb a Ferris wheel to load a helicopter is a-OK in my books. That shows dedication and perseverance in the face of danger. Exactly what I would look for in an apocalypse buddy.

  • godhatesme

    Sasha Grey.

  • Urquhart

    Jeffrey Dahmer. I wouldn’t have to share what little food I found because he’d be eating all the zombies. Terrific irony.

  • Ultrazilla

    My ideal zombie apocalypse buddy would be Superman. He could use his heat vision to incinerate zombies…or blow them away with his icy minty fresh breath. He could also punch their heads off. He would never be in danger, as zombies would just break their teeth off trying to bite into his man of steel hide. But then there’s the best part…if I were in danger, he would swoop in faster than a speeding bullet, and fly me to safety in his big, muscular arms while I held onto his chisled chest and thick neck…*cough*…what were we talking about???

  • ChristTheButcher

    I would choose Bangley from Peter Heller’s excellent post-flu wipeout novel “Dog Stars”. He might be a hateful misanthrope, but he’s definitely a guy I’d want watching my back during a zombie apocalypse (with it’s inevitable human scavengers).

  • TheWalkingFlat

    -Isaac Clarke- from DeadSpace franchise. Those slow Zombies aint a Shit against those fast and deadly “Necro´s” so Isaac got an easy job to do…

  • Euroboy

    I would choose Cannibal Corpse. They’d play “Pit of Zombies” and every zombie would be our friend and mosh around us.

  • freddy616

    You know what? I’ll choose the homeless guy. He knows how to live with almost nothing and of course they knew the apocalypse was coming.

  • Archgoat

    Someone who runs slower then me.

  • xxxwolf666

    How bout Jesus? He knows something about dying and coming back to life. And he has superpowers!

  • CHROMExSKULL

    Ill take one of my man crushes…Stallone

  • http://www.facebook.com/anthony.rebollo anthonyofthedead

    The grimace from McDonald’s. Nothing can stop the grimace!

  • http://www.facebook.com/JoeDon818 Joe Anthony

    Ok as im sure Adam would ninja kick the hell out of zombies and mutants and such, my pick would be Ash Williams (ED). Chainsaw hand+boomstick+crazy faces=high survival rate. If i had to take Bruce now, id load him up on energy shots, promise ED remake wont suck, and keep him away from books made of skin and written in blood.

  • honorbuddy

    My girlfriend, so even if we do end up dying, I got to spend some more extra time with her!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000280232569 Will Schuster

    I’d take Twilight author Stephenie Meyer so i could trip her and use her as bait. She deserves it for ruining vampires.

  • KingJamesRichard

    I’m gonna have to go with…..Jason Voorhees. All I’d have to do is point and say, “All these zombies killed your mom.” I would just have to remember to keep my best “Yo momma” jokes to myself!

  • NightmareWiz

    I’d pick someone from American Horror Story: Asylum, just because I’m obsessed with that show, but no one there can truly be trusted. So let’s go with Frank West from Dead Rising, he’s covered wars, ya know. Although, if I have to pick a real person I’ll have Tom Hardy as my ideal apocalypse buddy, because Tom Hardy.

    Let’s see who survives with their picks and wins a season pass. Good luck everyone.

  • silent_weasal

    My choice would be someone like Cody Lundin, an expert in primitive living. The areas most greatly impacted will first be the urban areas and spread through to the outreaches of society. It is for that reason, society must be completely abandoned. Anywhere there are buildings, there are roads, and there are people. This is why I want someone like Mr. Lundin that would know how to survive in the Arizona desert away from all mankind near indefinitely.

  • HorrorManiac666

    My pick would be Harley Quinn becuase I love her, or Ed from Shaun of the Dead because he’s Ed.

  • weresmurf

    When’s this being announced?
