It Was The Sidekicks, Not The Hero, That Made Me Love Mass Effect

The Walking Dead's Episode Four Stats Lead Up To Final Episode

If you, like me, are an episode or two behind in Telltale’s remarkable Walking Dead series, don’t watch this video. If you, unlike me, have caught up on episodes three and four of the five-part series, then by all means, go to town.

Origin users — which means anyone who’s played Battlefield 3 or Mass Effect 3, among other games — should keep a close eye on their accounts.
