The third season of Telltale’s The Walking Dead series hasn’t shied away from what made the franchise engrossing. You better believe that deaths are a plenty, zombie kills are in huge supply, and often humans will be the real monsters . If anything we learned that in the third episode released last month.

The fourth episode of the third season will release on April 25th as revealed by Telltale late last night on Twitter and through a press release today. It will be titled ‘Thicker Than Water’ and followup on the true nature of the New Frontier settlement’s leadership. Naturally, this causes even more strain on our hero Javier’s relationship with his brother Garcia. We’re told that we’ll decide how this family will end, but knowing Telltale the choices will inevitably be meaningless.

It’s probably just a callback, but the episode’s trailer above has a callback to season one of Telltale’s The Walking Dead. “And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; It tolls for thee.” I don’t see it meaning anything too important. Just something to keep an eye on.

Telltale Games also revealed that their The Walking Dead series has sold more than fifty million episodes worldwide. Additionally, they padded their milestones by mentioning the series has over one hundred game of the year awards from the like of Metacritic, USA Today, Wired, Spike TV VGAs, Yahoo, The Telegraph, Mashable, Polygon, Destructoid, GamesRadar, and the BAFTA Video Games Awards.

The Walking Dead video game series is developed by Telltale Games. Season one originally launched on April 24th, 2012 and season two debuted on December 17th, 2013. They were followed up by the 400 Days DLC on July 3rd, 2013 and Michonne mini-series on February 23rd, 2016 respectively. All of which received very positive reviews from fans and critics alike.

Are you excited to play the next installment in A New Frontier? Do you think you’ll be able to trust and make amends with Garcia? What about Clementine? Is she not the most badass little girl? Hit us up in the comments below and let us know what your favorite The Walking Dead moment is.

Critics and fans alike went crazy for Amazon’s take on the famous role-playing game series Fallout. There were a lot of nominations for 16 Emmy awards, including Best Actor and Outstanding Drama Series. The show was able to reach audiences outside of gamers and got a lot of attention from the industry.

Eurogamer has been keeping track, and now that all the votes are in, Fallout is tied for fifth place with 23 nominations for the 76th Emmy Awards, which are put on by the US Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. With 25, The Bear has the most nominations, followed by True Detective: Night Country with 23, and Shogun with 19.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Walton Goggins is up for Best Actor for his performance as The Ghoul. Although games will always be our first choice, it’s great that adaptations of games don’t have to be awful, and we can’t wait for the next season of the shows.

Are you surprised by how well Amazon’s version of Fallout has done in the mainstream? Is the curse of movies based on video games finally over? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.
