featuring Daryl and Dary- uh, Merle.  it is a prequel to the TV series featuring the brothers as they travel to Atlanta.  they have a trailer at the games main site.  IGN mentions that stealth will play a big part in the game, along with making decisions about NPC's you meet along the way.

you had to figure a FPS game for the series was inevitable.  hopefully the devs aren't lazy and make it feel like a Left 4 Dead or Dead Island mod.

I think before and during, but separate from the comic series.  this is a prequel to the TV series since, IIRC, Daryl and Merle are not in the comics.

It's now called The Walking Dead:Survival Instinct and has both Norman Reedus and Michael Rooker providing the voices(as you would expect)

Looking forward to what the brothers got up to before we saw them in the TV show


Quote
In The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, you play as the crossbow-wielding Daryl Dixon, in a story set prior to the events of the TV show. A first-person survival game, Survival Instinct follows Daryl (Reedus) and his brother Merle (Rooker) as they journey to the apparent safety of Atlanta. And we all know how that works out...

The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct is scheduled for launch in 2013.

Ooh, this could be pretty good now. Daryl is still my favorite character on the show, despite the repeated attempts they're making of a contrived romance with Carol. I hope there's a 2-player co-op with someone playing Merle.

Update 01-03-13: The footage here isn't an official trailer and appears to be a fan creation cut together from gameplay sequences that debuted on IGN's Up at Noon show. Activision reps say that no date is set for an official trailer.


Pretty good story there Activision  ninja  Tongue


However,if it's still gameplay sequences.......

I was wondering how long it would take Activision to make a tweet or announcement that the clip was not official.  It didn't take long.

Besides, everyone knows that stabbing a snap on lego hairdo with a knife is stupid.  You might as well be stabbing a helmet.  You have to melt them.  Legos melt real well.

So this is coming out today. I know expectations are super low. Hopefully it turns out to be halfway decent and not some generic zombie FPS with The Walking Dead name slapped on it.

I went looking for reviews and found no site has anything yet, which is never a great sign.

I did find this, though. 

a review of the game
by Rick Grimes

Quote

My first issue is why isn't this game about me, I mean come on already. Let's check some key character flaws in our main character Daryl Dixon. 1) Daryl Dixon is a "master tracker"..... I really can't be the only one who knows this guys spent like two weeks looking for a little girl and only found some flowers. I mean this is Georgia, Ray Charles can find a flower here. (Since I woke up from a coma I have found a bicycle, Morgan and Duane, guns, a horse, a tank, Lori and Carl, a deer, a prison and that my best friend slept with my wife. I mean the list goes on and on.) 2) Daryl Dixon uses "stealth" to take down walkers....Oh yeah, "Mr. excuse my while I put my corss bow on my back and drive the loudest vehicle I can find". Because, you only need stealth after everyone in northern Georgia knows your on the road. (I stealth killed my best friend with a knife, two guys in a bar with a revolver and some tool in a prison with a machete. I also didn't get caught while we raided a town.) 3) Daryl Dixon wears a vest with angel wings on it..... I mean really, who still wears Affliction shirts? (You got me there, I wouldn't be caught dead in that vest.) I could go on and on but you all get the point, why him and not me?

after watching a few minutes, this looks like Dead Island lite.  the melee combat is pretty basic.  three hits to any zed and it goes down.  there seems to be some level of damage reflected on the body, but very toned down compared to DI.  a few cuts and bruises.  I did see an arm fly off, and with the knife, you will be seeing the heads fly off quite a bit.  no stamina bar, no alt attack. 

watched a scavenging level and most of the doors are locked, leaving a very linear path to follow.  also saw a few elements that I really hate.  bodies litter the ground, but don't react to you hitting them, until magically, you trigger some action and they get up.  there's also an obvious element of gami-ness like having to route through a big infested building rather than simply crawl under the all too visible crawlspace under the semi truck trailer.  Daryl must have a bad back or something.  unable to jump on top of most objects and other objects you can push, but only from one direction. 

the environments are bland but do create a off-settling sense of isolation and death around every corner.  there were a few moments when a swarm is spawned, which sadly seem to be set-pieces instead of dynamically generated moments.  not blatant, like L4D but pretty clearly trigger points and actions which cause them. the character models are not current gen.  this and ACM could be cut from the same engine for all it looks like, but ACM had a more detailed environment. 

watching this, I get the feeling that they missed the boat quite a bit.  had they taken a larger world approach with a more rpg-like aspect to surviving and scavenging, this could have been quite fun.

Yeah, I'm not sure that is a surprise based on what little they've showed in videos before.  Too bad, of course, but it's clearly meant as a quick cash-in.

I think you mean Battlestar Galactica. If I'd known this was a BSG game I would have bought it immediately. I'm on my way to the store now!

To be fair, it's pretty close between BSG and TWD as my favorite. The best BSG game is the board game!
