Even though we're still well over a month away from "Walking Dead" returning to AMC, there are still numerous avenues from which to get your zombie fix, including Telltale Games' phenomenal video game based on the Robert Kirkman comic book series.
In fact, the third episode of "Walking Dead" — titled "Long Road Ahead" — is hitting PlayStation Network today (August 28) and Xbox Live Arcade, PC and Mac on Wednesday (August 29), according to the team at IGN. The grim journey of Lee Everett and (hopefully) his young companion Clementine will last for at least five episodes, with this week's third installment marking the midway point.
Haven't been able to get "Arkham City" out of your system yet? Well, good news: a new edition of the game is on the way to Wii U, "Batman Arkham City: Armored Edition." New box art and a new character design for Catwoman have cropped up online, and you can head over to MTV Multiplayer to check out the details.
The wait for the next entry of Telltale's "The Walking Dead" was almost unbearable. If you checked out our review of the first episode back in April, you probably noticed we were just a little smitten with the game's powerful narrative and pacing. But as the credits rolled on the freshman outing of "Walking Dead," there was just one nagging question: could Telltale keep you on the edge of your seat with each subsequent episode?
Amazingly, the next chapter in Lee Everett and company's perilous journey is even more intriguing than the first – a frequently gut-wrenching, occasionally touching walk through a world gone to hell.
"The Walking Dead" video game from Telltale released its second episode, "Starved For Help," earlier this week on Xbox 360. Today, it's available for PC, Mac and PS3. If you've already played episode one and haven't purchased episode two yet — well, what's wrong with you? Get on that!
A new trailer for "Starved For Help" has popped up online, offering a clear reminder of why the zombie apocalypse is such a dangerous world to live in — dangerous, but fun. Get a look at the brutal trailer past the break!
History teacher Lee Everett is having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. From getting carted off in a police car to crashing in the woods in the midst of a zombie outbreak, picking and choosing who lives and who dies a grisly death at the decaying maw of a flesh-eating monster, it's safe to say that Lee's seen brighter days.
Sadly for him, and awesomely for us, Lee's days are only getting darker. "The Walking Dead" video game from Telltale Games is releasing its second episode, titled "Starving For Help," today for Xbox Live, with PC and PS3 releases coming on Friday (June 29). Hope you're ready to do whatever it takes to save Clementine from the twisted forces of a post-apocalyptic world, because if episode one was any indication, you're not going to have a whole lot of time to think before you act.

Don't be afraid and don't be angry, "Dark Knight" devotees. Not only is there a brand new trailer for Christopher Nolan's third and final Batman movie out there today, there's even more Gotham City goodness in need of your attention.
A free-to-play browser game called "The Fire Rises" has launched today, casting players as henchman on the hunt for their own slice of Gotham glory. The real-time strategy game sees players recruiting their own hoodlums, securing new territories across the Caped Crusader's home turf, and engaging in other assorted forms of anarchy — all of which must be accomplished before Gotham's finest come calling to break up the party.
Few would disagree that Mark Hamill's Joker is one of the very best — if not the best — takes on the iconic DC Comics villain out there. His haunting, howling laugh is not something that leaves the mind easily, particularly when you recall that this is the same voice that brought Luke Skywalker to life so many years ago.
All of that said, it's always a pleasure to hear Hamill's chilling cackle as the Clown Prince of Crime, especially given recent word of his retirement as the character. But apparently there is some more Joker in his future: MTV Multiplayer has an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at "The Last Laugh," a new DLC for "DC Universe Online" that's available this week.
Get a look at Hamill in the studio as Joker in the video below.
The Dark Knight will soon be rising on a smartphone near you.
IGN got their hands on a teaser trailer for an upcoming "The Dark Knight Rises" iPhone and Android game. It's only a brief glimpse of the upcoming title, but it seems like much of the "Dark Knight Rises" handheld game will be oriented around beating up some of Gotham's slimiest criminals.
"When Gotham is threatened and people live in fear, only one hope remains," the tagline for the game reads.
It's going to be a minute before we get to see "The Avengers" on the big-screen again — the next "Iron Man" movie flies high in May 2013, with the "Thor" sequel striking lightning in November 2013, and an official "Avengers" sequel way off in the distance — but you won't have to wait years and years before visiting Cap and the gang on consoles, at least!
Our friends over at MTV Multiplayer are covering E3 all week, and they've posted a new story trailer for "Avengers: Battle for Earth," the Wii U and Kinect title hitting next fall. Watch the trailer above you and get more details over at Multiplayer.
"Assassin's Creed III," the next major installment in Ubisoft's incredibly popular game franchise, is due out this fall. But if you're hankering for some Assassin-Templar war action to tide you over until then, Ubisoft has announced an all new graphic novel, "The Chain." While the book serves as a continuation of the story-arc developed in previous "Creed" comics, it's apparently tied to the next game in some manner, as well.
A couple years ago, Ubisoft teamed up with now-defunct DC imprint Wildstorm to produce a three-issue comic series, "Assassin's Creed: The Fall." The story followed the exploits of Nikolai Orelov, a Russian assassin in the late 19th century. Much like the characters in previous "Creed" videogames, Orelov's tale is seen through the eyes of his modern-day descendent, Daniel Cross.
According to Ubisoft's site, "The Chain" is the next chapter in Orelov and Cross' story.
