We’re not all about the games here. The ‘stuff’ bit of our slogan keeps us covered when we feel like telling you about other entertaining things. Things like this.

Frank Darabont’s adaptation was the best TV show of last year, and we’re eagerly waiting to see the story continue.
More than just another zombie tale, The Walking Dead managed to be a suspenseful drama focusing on interesting characters who you genuinely care for as they struggle to survive in a devastated world gone tits-up.

I was engrossed throughout and look forward to the longer second season, which is said to have 13 episodes compared to the first series’ 6.
