The Walking Dead: Season 2 Episode 5 – No Going Back Review

Telltale Games - The Walking Dead

Metrico Playstation Vita Review

The Intro: Have you heard the popular phrase “Statistics are sexy?” No? Well, we haven’t heard of it either. That’s because when most of us think of statistics, we think of a bunch of numbers that immediately bring down the energy level of any conversation. Yet, in today’s day and age, we’re surrounded by statistics. They’re inescapable, as a matter of fact. Luckily, a bunch of smart people got together and figured out a way to show us pie-charts and graphs that wasn’t immediately sleep-inducing. The most popular way to display statistics today is called ‘infographics’. Infographics make statistics more palatable, and it might even be said, more entertaining.

The Dark Souls games have always asked you one fundamental question – how far are you willing to punish yourself to get to the light at the end of the tunnel?
