If you were planning on picking up Telltale’s acclaimed The Walking Dead: The Game via the recently released retail version, then be warned; according to several user experiences, this version of the game is nearly unplayable due to technical issues.

This is certainly a shame, as The Walking Dead: The Game has been touted as one of the finest gaming experiences of the year. To have such an unplayable version of such an excellent game is truly disappointing. As it stands, the downloadable versions are still your best bet.
If that’s not an option, then you’re advised to wait for a patch or significant price drop (or both) before jumping onto these retail versions. They’re currently going for $29.99 USD, which is more than a season pass anyways. Even getting all five individual episodes for $5 each is a slightly cheaper option. Paying more for a worse experience just doesn’t make sense.
