Free Walking Dead S2 E1
« on: August 12, 2014, 02:39:41 pm »
So i'm just curious, I know that this isn't a scam because it's being run by Microsoft (plus my code worked) but in the deal they stated only a lucky few would get codes. So how many of you that have an active Xbox Live account got a code for Walking Dead S2 E1?

I don't use XBox Live anymore, but I figure this is a marketing ploy.  After all, how many people will buy more episodes of the Living Dead game if they are given the S2 Ep1 game for free?  After all, you got to know what happens next, right?  (I'm going out on a limb and am assuming this is about the Tell-Tale Games Walking Dead game, and I am also assuming that XBox Live charges by the episode for the game)

Yhep it is the Tell-Tale, and i'll admit I like them. And you can either buy each episode at roughly 5.10 (after tax is added) or a Season pass for around 16.35-is (after tax)

Yeah, wow..  $5.10 an episode?  I believe there are 4 episodes so that pretty much comes out to a discount of about a dollar if they give you episode one, and then you buy the rest, over what the season pass is.

I do all my gaming exclusively on Steam now.  The PC Walking Dead S2 normal retail price is $25, but is relatively often on sale.  They do not sell episodes individually, the game comes with all episodes (and gets updated as they come out).  I have S1, and will get S2 when I get around to needing a new game, by then I will likely be able to pick up a copy at 50% or more off.  Xbox live sales, as I remember them, were pretty weak compared to Steam sales, but I suppose such is life.

Of course steam knows how to hit your wallet where it hurts. And S2 actually has 5 episodes this time around.
