THE COMPANY LINE:
“The Walking Dead is an award-winning vision of Robert Kirkman’s global hit comic book series. Experience the true horror and emotional impact of being a survivor of the undead apocalypse in a zombie game unlike any other. You will meet people and experience events that will impact the story of Deputy Sheriff Rick Grimes, and you will be forced to make decisions that are not only tough, but that will have a direct effect on the story that you experience. The undead are everywhere, but they’re not your only problem. Starvation, betrayal, heartbreak and more will challenge you as you attempt to survive in the world of The Walking Dead.”
Holy shite! It’s once again time for the Hallow’s End holiday event in World of Warcraft…YAAAAAAAAY!
Without question, this is BY FAR by favorite time of year in the game, and I always participate to the fullest. (Unfortunately, though, I have yet to score the Horseman’s damn mount, despite so many years of trying. Perhaps this will be the year that I finally get that Warlock-appropriate steed.)
Anyways, be sure to log in and soak up the groovy Halloween atmosphere — especially around the brilliant Tirisfal Glades zone.
I have many reasons as to why The Secret World is so great, but one of them is the geek-culture references you’ll stumble upon while adventuring through the game’s incredibly interesting world. Take for example the following establishment, located in a demon and undead inhabited patch of woods known as the “Ash Forest”:
YES! A cabin extremely reminiscent of the one in Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead films…in the “ASH Forest”…surrounded by the undead…with a chainsaw lodged in the door frame:
I guess Funcom secretly added them, ’cause I only discovered today that groovy character profile pages have recently been added to the TSW site:
That’s my character, but the picture on that page (under “Deck Completion”) is just some generic placeholder, NOT what my toon actually looks like. Ugh.
I always try to keep my enthusiasm in-check during the honeymoon phase with a new MMO, and I also try to refrain from working too “blue” when writing for the site, but I fucking love The Secret World. (Henceforth referred to as TSW.)
