The Walking Dead limited edition GameStop collection is still available.

If you were thinking about giving someone the gift of fear, pain and Clementine for Christmas, there is hope: Telltale's The Walking Dead compilation is out December 11th in the US and Canada. If you happen to be interested in the deluxe collectable edition, there's still some time to get it, according to Telltale's press release.

The disc set will feature all five episodes of the first season, and RRP is $29.99. However some sets are only available from specific retailers; the PC edition, for one, can only be had from Best Buy, which also has a Limited Edition cover variant and exclusive poster. The Xbox 360 and PS3 versions can be had pretty much anywhere games are sold, but Gamestop's the only place that has the collectable edition.

For those new to the party, Telltale's The Walking Dead features Lee Everett (i.e. you) as a former convict turned reluctant hero. On the first day of the apocalypse Lee finds a lost eight year old named Clementine, who he then does his best to protect. It's been nominated for several VGA awards, including best voice for both Dave Fennoy as Lee Everett, and Melissa Hutchison (Clementine). Brilliant storytelling and chilling horror have earned it all kinds of plaudits; here's hoping Season Two will be as good!

I've heard nothing but great things about this series, I'll probably pick this up as soon as I've gotten around to getting a new PC.

most of the telltale games actually are not that intensive, so you probably could play them on the PC you are communicating with now.

Karloff:
RRP(sic)

pleas check spelling of the special sales terms. also maybe including a link to this GameStop entry would also be helpful

I doubt it :D

The laptop I'm using now is my fiancée's.

My laptop broke a few months back, which would have probably been able to play it.

Besides, it'll be a present to my new PC :D

I'll definitely be getting this if and when it comes out in the UK. It seems that everyone that has played the game loves it, and the only reason I was hasty about getting it before was that I haven't watched or read anything "The Walking Dead" before, but I've been told by various people it isn't an issue.

This is one of those games, nay... experiences, that we all should have.

Yes, it's that good. Play it and rejoice, ye faithful.

The only negative comment I have about the game is that in certain parts the story feels almost like it goes too far in trying to depress you, the player. But by the end of every chapter you're wild-eyed, itching to talk about it with everyone and excited about what might be coming next.

Still, can't recommend this enough guys, believe the hype, it's justified.

This might be the ONLY game that ever made me cry... thrice, if not more times than that.

This also might well be one of the very best zombie related stories I've ever seen.

I salute you Telltale, you made a masterpiece. I can't wait for the second season (seriously, I can't D:)
