Telltale Unveils The Walking Dead Episode 4 Trailer And Release Date

Though they generally put out fantastic products, Telltale Games is often thought of as the scourge of humanity by gamers who hate the company’s seemingly random release dates. Fans wait months between episodes of games like The Walking Dead and the now-completed first season of The Wolf Among Us, with the announcements usually arriving only a week or two before the episodes hit the Internet. Such is the case once more, as Telltale revealed the full trailer for the fourth episode of The Walking Dead: The Game Season 2, “Amid the Ruins,” and confirmed the installment will be available for download on July 22. Maybe I’m biased here, but it certainly looks like it was worth the wait.

Spoilers ahead!


First Guardians Of The Galaxy Clip Pokes A Ninja Turtle

You didn’t really expect to go an entire day and not see something new from Guardians of the Galaxy, did you? The frequency with which Marvel has been dumping promotion on us is nothing short of impressive. Just the fact that they can churn out the sheer quantity they have, and that it’s all been fun, informative, and hasn’t gotten stale yet, is a feat in and of itself. Today they’re back with the first official clip as well as one more in a long line of character posters.

It’s been interesting to watch the evolution of the promotion for Guardians. This isn’t one of Marvel’s most known titles. There is a long, varied history, and the comic plays an important part in many larger storylines in the comic book universe, but as far a name recognition goes, it pales in comparison to the likes of Captain America, The Avengers, Thor, and the others. As a result, much of the early marketing focused on introducing the key players including Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper), and Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel).


The Purge: Anarchy – Frank Grillo And Constant Tension Nearly Save The Night

purge anarchyLet’s be true to one another. The Purge was one of the worst horrors/thrillers of the last few years, taking a potentially meaningful plot and shitting on it with terrible characters and awful decision-making. Director James DeMonaco’s actual direction was probably the fourth thing anyone thought about after watching it. Thankfully, The Purge: Anarchy is in almost every way the film that its predecessor was meant to be. Unfortunately, that still equals out to: “Frank Grillo in an okay slasher movie.”

Not that this is a slasher movie; not in the singular sense. This is a slashersss movie, where murderers run amok in Los Angeles because it is their Founding Fathers-given right! The Purge: Anarchy is at times surprising where it chooses to go with its subject matter, but only The Purge part of its subject matter. For two films now, DeMonaco has teased horror fans with a truly great scenario—the U.S. allows its more depraved citizens the right to go nuts for twelve hours a year, with no consequences. And for two films, he has delivered stale genre movies rife with stereotypes. But at least this one has Frank Grillo front and center.
