Our top pick of the week?
OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead
If you’ve played OVERKILL’s Pay Day then you know that they certainly have the bones in place for a great co-op experience. From what we’ve seen so far of this game, that co-op gameplay looks solid.
Yes, excitement for the TV show the game is tied to has most definitely waned, but as the game seems to be focus on a team we’ve never met there is a chance for new and interesting dynamics the television series hasn’t touched on.
