If there’s one thing that I have learnt from playing The Walking Dead episodic quick-time event, it’s that I am a horrible, horrible person. Even though I insist that using Clementine as a strap-on zombie shield would have been brilliant. Decisions made in that game carried weight, and with a sequel on the cards, Telltale Games is looking to carry the impact of those choices, into season two.
First off, I hate Gavin. He’s busy with Halo 4 and he knows that I am a fan, and is taunting me daily about it being rad. Second, I have nothing to watch, because DSTV is either repeats or endless shows about fat people buying old stuff. So I’m watching Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn, because that’s all there is right now. Gah, jeez!
Excuse me while I wipe a laugh-induced tear from my eye. What does $50 million buy you these days? Not a whole bunch apparently, as itâ€™s been confirmed that once Xbox 360 exclusive DLC episodes will be available for PS3 and PC.
Thatâ€™s right folks, youâ€™ll soon be able to play The lost and the Damned as well as The Ballad of Gay Tony on your non-Microsoft platform.
With Left 4 Dead 2 now out and raking in the big bucks, it was expected that Valve would get to work on the hugely anticipated, long-overdue 3rd episode for Half-Life 2. Well, they probably are, but that doesnâ€™t mean you should be expecting it any time soon.
According to Game Informerâ€™s February issue, there is no Half-Life game expected this year at all.

For those of you who don't know, Fable II is now offered in an episodic manner which means that those of you who don't own the game can now play it in segments.
The first episode clocks in at a hefty 2GB's but is available for absolutely nothing and can be downloaded on your Xbox or scheduled by clicking this link.
The episodes work together with the disc based Fable II, so if you decide to purchase the full game you will keep your progress as well as achievements and so on.

As I am writing this post I can hear the roar of the beautiful Indian Ocean around 50 metres away. The reason for that is because I am actually on vacation.
Amazingly, the fact that I am on vacation just happens to be the same reason that there will be no podcast this week. We are nearly up to episode 20 of the podcast, so if you have missed any then be sure to grab some of the previous episodes and give them a listen.
Don't hate on me too much though, the weather forecast for the rest of the week is predicting some rather terrible weather.
I really need to just embrace the geek in me and pack my consoles with me when on vacation, stupid weather.
In a recent Q&A posted on their official site, Rockstar answered questions about the upcoming Ballad of Gay Tony DLC, as well as â€œEpisodes from Liberty City,â€ the retail bundling of both DLC episodes on one disc. Naturally, the question arose about the DLC making its way to the PS3 â€“ but instead of a straight answer, weâ€™re given this :
â€œWe appreciate the enthusiasm of PlayStation 3 owners and believe us, we understand where you're coming from. That's why we are working hard on a lineup of PlayStation 3 releases for 2010 that we know you will be very excited to play - including Red Dead Redemption, Max Payne 3, and the PlayStation 3 exclusive AGENT, which is a brand-new title from Rockstar North, the creators of the Grand Theft Auto series. Plus there's more yet to be announced... Thanks again for your patience and please stay with us!â€
