If for some reason you’d rather not play the premiere episode of Telltale’s The Walking Dead season two, I recorded my playthrough of it and slapped it on YouTube for easy viewing. Though I’d highly recommend watching it yourself, maybe making tough decisions gives you stress hives and a sweaty brow. No one likes a sweaty brow. In that case, enjoy watching me make all the difficult decisions in my playthrough, which you can find after the jump.
The second season of Telltale’s episodic series based on The Walking Dead arrived last week with the first episode, All That Remains. It’s pretty great, so long as you don’t mind being hit with all the feels.
If you haven’t grabbed it already, I have a Steam code for the first episode that I’d very much like to be rid of. Winning it is easy, just subscribe to our YouTube channel then comment on my review. I’ll be picking the winning comment on Monday, so you have the entire weekend to get on it!
It’s been a while since I last did a video review, and what better game to bring that series back than with the long awaited second season of Telltale’s The Walking Dead.
The first episode, All That Remains, is available now on nearly every platform you could possibly want to play it on (360, PS3, PC, iOS, Android) and it sets the stage for what could be an even better season than the roller coaster ride of emotions and bloodshed that was the first. Check out my review of episode one after the jump.
The second season of Telltale’s incredible episodic series based on The Walking Dead arrives in a week with episode one, titled All That Remains. I’m sure many of you can’t wait to return to the series, which is practically guaranteed to bring with it all the feels. Telltale knows this, and they’ve been teasing its return on their official Twitter this week to keep us nice and pumped — as if we need any help with that.

Okay, horrible facial disfigurement aside, someone REALLY needs to call the doctor! When your nether bits are engulfed in flames and can double as a flamethrower, my recommendation is a hefty dose of penicillin, STAT! But no, I guess that’s asking a bit too much.
In Dethklok‘s video for “I Ejaculate Fire”, a pharaoh receives a delightful “offering” from a woman who just so happens to be a demon/succubus/Smokey The Bear’s worst nightmare. From that point on, the pharaoh roams the lands, “showering” people with his flames of lust. It all comes to a header when he runs into said STD-ridden woman and a good ole’ fashioned standoff ensues. Who is the winner? Check below for the answer! But be warned! This video, even though it’s animated, is pretty NSFW. So tread carefully!

With a new album coming out and a tour about to kick off, Five Finger Death Punch are insanely busy right now. So, to help them out, I’m posting this article with all sorts of FFDP news so you don’t have to scramble all over the Internet trying to find it all. First of all, below is a shout-out video from Jeremy and Zoltan for YOU, the Bloody-Disgusting readers!
Check out the artwork after the jump and let me know your thoughts. Personally, I’m getting a little tired the grindhouse look. What about you?
Five Finger Death Punch are gearing up for the release of their third studio album American Capitalist. Not ones to sit on their laurels, the band is already getting set for the Share The Welt tour, which will also feature All That Remains, Hatebreed, and Rev Theory. The album is due to drop October 11th, so make sure to keep an eye out for it!
All That Remains have released a video for ‘The Last Time‘, which comes off their latest album, ‘For We Are Many‘. The video was shot and directed by Nathan Cox (Marilyn Manson, Linkin Park, Disturbed). Singer Phil Labonte had this to say: ”I’ve seen some footage and without a doubt this thing looks GREAT! It’s got…some killer acting, and our dumb asses jumping around like mad.”
It seems lately that the big craze now is 7 or 8 string guitars: The lower the tuning, the more brutal the music. At least, that’s what bands think. More often than not, poor tones and generic songwriting plague what could otherwise be an interesting use of extended range instruments. After The Burial (interview here) tout their dual wielding 8 string guitarists as a huge part of their appeal. So does it help them or hinder them on their latest endeavor, ‘In Dreams’? Check out after the jump.
Devildriver will be releasing their fifth studio album, entitled ‘Beast’, on Feb. 22nd, 2011, courtesy of Roadrunner Records.

Some song titles are as follows: “Dead to Rights”, “Hardened”, “Bring The Fight (To the Floor)”, “Shitlist”, “Talons Out (Teeth Sharpened)”, “Blur”, “You Make Me Sick (Sacred Secrets)”, “The Blame Game”, “Coldblooded”, “Crowns of Creation” and “Lend Myself to the Night.”
