A Slow Start

I'm a big fan of Telltale Games' work, and my favorite series by far is The Walking Dead. While Game of Thrones and The Wolf Among Us were both fantastic experiences, it's the two seasons worth of adventures set in Robert Kirkman's zombie apocalypse that have provided the most interesting stories and fully fleshed-out characters. So when it was announced that Telltale was making a game centered around the katana-wielding Michonne, a central figure in both the television show and graphic novels, I was naturally very excited. The first of the three episodes, In Too Deep, dropped yesterday and it was a day one purchase for me. So how did the Michonne-centric choose-your-own adventure video game turn out? Honestly it's a mixed-bag.
