Shocking Introduction: A First Look at Herd Mode in The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct

When word broke that there was going to be a first person shooter for The Walking Dead, I don’t think anyone was really surprised. The series is a smash hit on TV, in the comics and Telltales version of the video game was winning all kinds of awards. Enter Activision and boom, cookie cutter first person shooter it is. It hasn’t been a good month for terribly made cash-ins, as Aliens: Colonial Marine has left a sour taste in everyone’s mouth only to lead into this. Herd Mode was a Gamestop pre-order bonus and is basically your classic horde mode style gameplay. You start off in a small generic town and get attacked by waves of boring, generic zombies. If you run by them and are even within a pink of their hands, they will grab you and you go into this clunky, annoying stabby mode in which you have to hit the right trigger at the right time in order to stab the zombie in the head to kill them. There apparently is no way to push away, and you either do this until all the zombies are dead or until they kill you. It was cool for like the first two times it happened and then it got old real quick.

PSN in March: Spend $50, Get $10 Back

PSN in March

PSN’s returning with the Day 1 Digital titles, and to celebrate, they’ve launched another promotion. For every $50 you spend on the PlayStation Store from today until April 1, you’ll receive $10 back before April 12. This promotion is similar to the one introduced last October alongside the first Day 1 Digital promotion wherein spending $100 would net you $20 back at the end of the month.

However, that only worked for the first $100 spent, anything after that wasn’t counted, so this promotion is considerably better for people that spend a lot of money on the PlayStation Store.

To help you get rid of that $50, Sony’s delivering some popular titles for March that will be available to pre-order starting later today. If you pre-order any of the games from the list below, you’ll receive a special pre-order bonus. You can check out the list and pre-order bonuses down below. (more…)

The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct Gameplay

Um… wow. With the success of Telltale Games playable movie for The Walking Dead, Activision decided it was their turn to jump in and try to make some of that sweet, sweet zombie cashola in the form of a First Person Shooter. Apparently, this is what they came up with. Below you will find some gameplay footage of The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, and I have to say, this would look great pre-Call Of Duty: World At War. At this point? Meh, I guess I’ll have to see more, but this is not promising. More details when they are available, unless we lose interest completely.
